Notes from the Studio
Ephemera – I have a tube map taken from a tube station, dating from July of 1999, a little over a year after I moved to the UK. People don’t usually get ahold of them, much less hang a copy in their bathroom, but it serves to provide a snapshot in history, even if tube maps nowadays look very very different and there is no trace of this one anywhere else.
So it goes with ephemeral events. I’ve been seeing the Moon out during the day, it’s that part of its cycle, and although the nights are cool and clear again, the Moon isn’t a part of that. Probably good telescope weather if I had time for it. Usually when I have time, the Moon is blotting out what the street lights haven’t already.
This Ephemera is mostly new material, I’ll probably still try to do a piano piece or two to try to capture a good performance of one, but the rest is almost entirely new, some bits might be memorable but it has been worked over considerably. The point being, the theme was upgraded and is no longer like the original.
As usual, I will be performing in Second Life in the Orlov region, and in Opensim in the Dome, now in the Sharing is Caring Family grid. You don’t have to go to either, but if you’re inworld, feel free to stop in.
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 weekend.
