in the latest saga to try and get more tunes down into something solid, i installed adobe audition onto the laptop. the main reason for choosing this program is simply because i can't get cubase to run, or soundforge, so i went with a simpler program. i'm not keen on the userability (mainly because it's version 1.5, which is about a trillion years old), but given time, i'm sure i could get used to it. this means that the quality of the recordings isn't going to be grand because there is only one audio input jack on the lappy, so i'll be focusing on creating demos of my tunes in the hopes that i can improve them with awesomeness in the future sometime.

the one thing that's annoying is the fact that my midi keyboard hasn't arrived yet. it should have arrived by now as it's only being shipped from melbourne, and i got an email last week announcing it's postal. i've emailed the company i bought it from to try and source its location and hopefully work something out: i do not want to lose more than $300 on something i've taken a great deal of care selecting and finally choosing. but it was free money...NOT the point! argh! should the item ever arrive, then i'll be able to make some fuller sounding recordings, and finally get started on my new musical project. i'm going to remain tight lipped on the project for now until i know that it's fully underway, but if it does get its feet off the ground in time, then i may a gig set up! again, it's all relying on this damned keyboard!

along with my music, i'm looking to improve my skills as an actor. to do this, i am attempting to build a collection of acting learnering books to read and, well, learn from. in particular i'm looking for cicely berry's "the voice and the actor" and "the actor and the text". also, any texts regarding linklater or lessac techniques would also be favoured. if anyone has anything they are willing to give up, i will offer monies for the exchange, or a coffee or even a beer for pointing me in the right direction wherein i am able to locate them with expediency. any other suggested readings are also welcomed with open arms and cranial space. i've reached an impasse and i want climb out of this gully before it gets too deep. as i am fiscally limited, attending workshops is so ridiculously out of the question it's a pain in the proverbial. i may even be looking for a mentor in the near future, if anyone has suggestions or offers :)

well, it's time. nablopomo is upon me. so here be the first of a month of daily entries.

unfortunately i don't have a lot of time to make a proper entry, so you'll have to find out about my friday night shenanigans either later today (as far as i know there are no rules against double or triple (or more) postings per day) or in tomorrow's entry.
i have to go shower, and get my shit together for todays gig.

i am so underprepared for this.

Fete de la Musique, a festival of music for music lovers and performers. Held in France for decades, and in countries the world over, makes it's debut in Brisbane on June 21, 2008.

The BCC website has information about the festival and you can find the official Fete de la Musiqe website here, but it's in French.

I'm stoked to be offered a performance slot for this inaugural event!

So, on June 21 at 2:20pm I hit the Licorice Lane Stage in the Valley Mall for a 20 minute set. Consider it a warm up set for my big come back gig in early July (details of that available soon i hope). I'll even have a few copies of my EP for sale for those who don't have one but want one.

But Fete de la Musique isn't just about me (surprisingly! :p), it's about the music. So, don't just come see me (but don't forget to!), wander around the city and the valley and sample all the music styles that are on offer.

Let's all celebrate the music!

for those of you who will find this remotely interesting:

it's not 100% solid, as i've not signed anything yet (mainly because we're still nutting out the finer details of the documentation to ensure both sides are satisfied and looked after), but, i have, for the past week, been negotiating the terms and conditions and all sundries therein of a miniature record deal with an independant record label. that's right, a 'record deal'. it's termed "miniature" because it will only cover the production of my debut EP, but if all goes well, both parties may wish to extend the relationship. tomorrow sees me heading over to the studio to begin the recording process.

this is all kind of exciting. i've managed to keep this quiet for weeks, and now with it only days away from being solid and official, i feel i can let it be known to all!  i've been so busy this week trying to work out the arrangements for the songs i plan to record, how i plan to record them, what equipment does the studio have that i could utilise and do i need to bring any of my own, that i've forgotten pretty much anything else i may have had to do. it's because of this that i went out and bought a diary!

despite the tight schedule, there are some small plans afoot to have the EP finished and due for release at The Globe gig on February 9, but we're not aiming to rush the process in order for that to happen. if it happens that it is finished and available on time, i'll consider that a bonus. it may be a case of just placing an order sheet on the merch table for anyone wishing to purchase a copy. whatever the outcome, it should be completed before the end of February. stay tuned here for more information about it's release date and the like!
