The audience witnesses the performance of this act live and is temporally immediate. Additionally, Baker (2013) believes that the position of live performance as a traditional method of performance has also affected the development and uptake of technologically mediated performance. For instance, the audience believes that information that is passed live is likely to be more impactful. The bias and resistance of various researchers within this discipline to explore the position of technologically mediated performance has further affected the development of this concept and the general perception of people. Johnston (2016) however concludes the conversation on these aspects arguing that since the differences between live and recorded performances remain culturally stratified, there is need to interrogate this concept in depth.
