Notes from the Studio
Well we did slip into Tier 3 here in the UK, I guess it was a couple weeks ago, hard to tell anymore. It’s hard to tell we’re in a pandemic, and it’s hard to tell anybody cares enough to protect themselves anymore. I don’t know who, if anybody, I can put responsibility for this onto. Nor, I suppose, should it matter as I’ve still shut myself in the studio/office/bedroom that’s been this year’s storm shelter, literally.
Over the course of the past 158 Ephemeras, perhaps 5 or 10 of the musical themes were memorable enough compositions of mine to get either a name or further development. I exclude the piano pieces, many of which I composed years ago and just like to play once in awhile. Amongst the vignettes I have planned, one of the themes occurred to me in the spring (of 2010) which was not a fantastic time in my life, but to me represented hope, even with no evidence that hope was warranted.
If you want to see me playing in RL, I will be broadcasting this show on twitch.tv as well as playing on the main stage at the Sci-Fi Con in SL and audio via RadioSpiral’s live stream. https://twitch.tv/edisonrex4 for the video feed, each broadcast is an improvement, hopefully this one will be as well. If you just want to listen in the background, that’s ok too..

If you’ve missed shows or want to explore some of the past Ephemera performances, you can find them at https://aegura2.harriman4.com/ephemera.php which has the past few years of them. Beware, they’re all 2 hours long so there’s a lot to listen to (maybe 300 hours or so).
