Notes from the Studio
I haven’t done Rainmaker in enough time for there to be extra studio to employ, so I will be playing that backing theme, with an awful lot of change in it. The studio now has a total of 8 sequencers, not counting Digital Performer, and those 8 sequencers can do a total of 15 separate channels of sequencing. I haven’t decided how I want to arrange things, but I’ll work it out before I start playing.
Two weeks ago, I played 1/2 hour at the Mountain Skies event, so that isn’t counting as an Ephemera. So it’s been a month since I did the full length performance.
And SL peeps, we’re at the Sci-Fi-Con benefitting the American Cancer society’s Relay for Life. If you go to Orlov, you’ll have instructions to get to the event.
I’ll be in Opensim at my stage at the Dome in Pomsigland, as well, but I’m going to stay off TwitchTV again, I’m reworking my approach there and I haven’t even tested with my new iMac (oh yeah, RIP old iMac, hello Retina one) and i don’t like testing in production.
Or you can just tune in and listen in the background. We’re now on Discord if you like to chat, we’ve changed over from Slack as of two weeks ago. Hurray!
If you don’t remember Rainmaker (aka Theme 163), it was written way back in late 2009, had been performed a number of times, including at Electro-Music festivals and at Awakenings in the Midlands, and still isn’t ever the same. Although it’s probably my best rehearsed piece at this point. This is the studio version (I have it on the Eigenharp as its own piece but won’t perform that this time).
Thanks for your continued support for RadioSpiral. We all appreciate it.
