Notes from the Studio

This weekend I will be (re)doing what is, in my opinion, the most effective of the themes I have composed in the 13 years I have been making Ephemera. The original track for what is now called Rainmaker was composed in August of 2009 and I’ve done quite a few versions of this one, over the years, including a version on Eigenharp (which I played at a number of concerts back 10 years ago now). The 2 hour version of this has a number of (new) vignettes more or less sharing the overall (wet) theme. 

This particular track is dear to me and I enjoy playing it, so much so that I haven’t played it at all in 2 years for fear of overdoing it. It will be fun to incorporate all of the past 2 years of changes in the studio into this performance.

As usual, I will be virtually performing in Second Life but in the new Radio Spiral  region, and in Opensim in The Dome, 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. Otherwise, simply tune in to (instructions below) and listen in, all ears are appreciated.  

 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.
