For last night's show (with Audiobraille) I took Frank's suggestion and ran meterbridge in old-skool VU mode, and an RXVT with aseqdump, in addition to my Xclock. It made it a bit more interesting to look at for the couple people sitting off to one side of the stage.

The aseqdump scrolling up looks somewhat like a tracker, which I guess might have confused any techno/house/IDM musicians who might have been lurking around back there (there weren't any AFAICT).

Thanks again!
