Perceived Chaos?

we are living in an airbrushed age - everything has to appear perfect.
i so enjoy performing in the virtual world of second life. i admit i get flustered and tongue tied as i move between three computers, loading sounds for the music I play and manipulate live. multi tasking like a mother.
yesterday i wondered if people notice and do they really care if it's live or not?
i can't message or communicate whilst playing and yet people chat to me as if i'm not doing anything.
other performers who play pre-recorded music can carry on a conversation whilst their music is playing.
i could if i was using itunes but i use logic audio - an extremely powerful sequencing and recording application.
i like the feel of playing live albeit it me and the computer!
would love to get your feedback . .
would you rather have a pristine sounding "radio show" or is there something about the chaos of someone trying to find sounds and their words that makes you tune in
thanks JaNa

As Tony Gerber said "The energy of live comes through the wires" Something I have said for years-co-writing on the Rocket Network made me aware of that. you dont have to be in a room with someone to tap into the creative spirit.
