Notes from the Studio
I’ve been trying more and more to get back to the creative side of the Ephemera production process, where I’m letting my mind flow to build vignettes, often out of the dregs of my collection of project files in Digital Performer. It seems to be working better for me now, and this week will be one, maybe memorable, vignette which first aired in mid September of 2010 and has been used a few times since. However there’s been more (quite a lot more) added, which I hope works out. I do enjoy the Ephemera series, it’s still a challenge even after almost 180 2-hour performances.
This series was a personal challenge, to play for 2 hours in my studio without too much planning, heavy on improvisation, use as much as I can in the studio, try not to be boring. Over the years I’ve been doing this, it’s been varied. I don’t think it’s boring, at least to those who listen in, and I’ve gone through some creative peaks and valleys, and I think I’m starting to feel like I can challenge myself creatively again.
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.
