Notes from the Studio

2 weeks of hot sun, then all that rain we didn’t get came down in one night. That’s Midsummer for you. I do like the light evenings although it makes it even more useless for stargazing, as if there’s much I can do, in London, during what is still a lockdown (at least 4 more weeks of restrictions here). That said, I am not at all complaining.

I looked back at the tracks I am using tonight, they date from around August of 2009 and were not played since, because I don’t know but they needed some work to bring them up to the standard I’ve got to here in 2021. The studio was quite smaller then and these tracks were not developed much. This would have been from the 7th Ephemera, and here we are at 171. 

So yeah here’s a rainy Solstice set, with many vignettes to describe both what’s going on around me but also what’s going on in my head. 

Feel free to just listen, but if you’re so inclined, I will be virtually performing this in Second Life at the SL18B (that’s the 18th birthday of Second Life) in the RadioSpiral booth (you know the drill, pick up a landmark at Orlov). Also I will be playing at the Dome in Pomsigland in Opensim. It is not a requisite to attend though. 

 And we have our Discord chat, if you want to hang out there, I think it’s turned out much better to use Discord, it certainly works better for me. 

Thanks for your continued support. We at RadioSpiral appreciate all of your listening time, and wish you a happy Midsummer.
