You are very welcome to arrive early to get set up. We will work from only ONE machine this time as well as having an input for your computer(s) or other devices. Be sure to be in touch ASAP if you have any special requirements.
Monday April 8th:
Obi Asiama and Daniel Nilsson-Cole
Gina Choi, Robyn Nason, and John DeCorato
Terry Moon and Erik Rego
Wednesday April 10th:
Paul Hwang and Chelsea Cheng
Doug Hendler and Obi Asiama
Ben Lai, Adam Hachey, and Jeffery Huang
Here is the concert order for Monday and Wednesday this week.
NOTE: because of problems on one of my studio laptops, We will be using the computers from B25C and B25D in our performances (I will move them over at around 2pm). Since we will be alternating back and forth between the two systems during the performance (while one person is performing, the other can be setting up), I have assigned, below, which machine you will perform from (B25C = C; B25D = D). It shouldn't make much difference practically, but if you want to visit the machine for your performance tomorrow in advance of class, either to dump your project or test, you have that option. Let me know immediately if you have a conflict with this.
If you will be using your own computer (two have let me know this), there will be a separate audio connection available for this purpose.

Main events, all in the new Milstein Hall dome:
Earlier today, while introducing my piece I named the band Tabla Beat Science as my inspiration for mixing classical Indian music and electronic music. I thought I would share one of their pieces.
My friend showed me this cool video. Diego Stocco is the artist and he made this awesome mix from sounds at a dry cleaner.
Here is my Project 1 attached as an mp3. I didn't get to share it in class. It's based around some acoustic guitar samples I recorded in the studio. Everything else is from the sound file library or freesound.org. I actually hit a bum note in one of the guitar parts. I couldn't get back into the studio to re-record it, so I just did my best to disguise it. You can decide for yourself how well it works.
On future projects, I'd like to collaborate with a drummer or someone who knows a lot about creating drum beats. That way, I can have fully fleshed out beats and fills in my projects, rather than the sparse snare hits and cymbal crashes you hear in this one.
Didn't get a chance to share this in class, so I've attached my project 1. It's the first song I've every composed, with lyrics and everything, so it was definitely a new experience for me. It's called "Awake" and it's a collaboration between my friend Josh Rothman on guitar and myself on vocals. A bit different than some of the other cool stuff people are doing in the class. The vocals are still rough due to time limitations, but it's a start. Let me know what you think - feedback is appreciated!
