I am feeling much better, the tail end of Covid is actually worse than the active disease. Fatigue and a persistent cough wearing me down. Overall it hasn’t been much fun for September. But I’m well enough to play more, and that’s what I intend to do.
In the studio, the Neuron’s motherboard battery ran out so it won’t boot, I haven’t had the energy to deal with pulling it apart to replace it and fix the BIOS settings so it’ll run again, but that’s not a huge problem at this time. The Eigenharp is back in service, thanks to the software I got from the kind folks at 3eee who have put it together, it’s not like it used to be, but it works a heck of a lot better than it was (unstable enough to be out of service for 3 months or so). So that’s back. The Linnstrument is back in regular use, I took it to 3eee and worked out something I had not got ever (I’m really not a guitar player) so the fingering had always confused me. Not anymore.
The underlying theme for this Ephemera is one that tends to make me reflective, each of the main themes (there were over 50 of them) carries its own emotional weight with me, and now each of those themes has been augmented by 3 or 4 vignettes (yeah that’s about 200 separate musical threads so far) each of which brings its own emotional paint. So this will be a reflection, probably good for an Equinox.
I know there are a lot of different events tonight for the Equinox (speaking of that) but I hope you can tune in and listen here.
