I've shown this to some of you already, but though I'd share with everyone. The Ether and Aether Project is a theremin oriented group. Really, really good theremin playing.

Watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mW0B1sipLBI

They make it look positively easy, which is a sign of how good they are.

Just a reminder, that if you've nothing better going on tonight, you should come to http://noneabove.org/sf/ at 8pm. Great music, concessions, casual fun, and requires very little on your part beyond being there. I'll be there either way, but the more, the merrier!

Tuesday night while playing squash, I rolled my foot over and twisted my ankle. Ow. In my defense though, it was the last game of a 5-game match, and I was up 10-4, and it was my serve, so I probably would have won. Stayed home yesterday, but did go to rehearsal. Up and about today, but taking it easy, as there is still some pain.

And while there are still a few weeks before people's schedules completely fill up, I'd like to point people to http://noneabove.org/sf/ .

June 2nd, 8 pm., three great a cappella groups, $10.

This past weekend I took off and drove close to a thousand miles all said and done. I went down to the DC area for the East Coast Acappella Summit, a weekend long conference with seminars, concerts, a party, charity auction, chance to meet and greet, and a lot of other pretty cool stuff. I mostly went for the networking, and I got to do a lot of that. The kickass concerts alone were worth it too, although I only got to see two of the four (missing both matinee concerts for various reasons). I gave a seminar on podcasting and how it can be used by groups for promotional purposes, attended seminars on digital music distribution, barbershop basics, vocal percussion, the legalities of cover songs, etc. I got to have long conversations with Freddie Feldman (producer of Dark Side of the Moon A Cappella), Wes Carroll (Mouth Drumming), and Barry Carl (former bass for Rockapella of Carmen Sandiago fame). I also got to meet people from other groups like a-cappella.com, The Chromatics, Men In Black, and InPulse, as well as solo artists like Adam Matta and Yo Yo Beats. I did some audio journaling of the trip, so now I get to pull those together and splice them, and if it comes out well, I'll link it here.

I drove down Friday, and there was rain for almost the entire 10 hour drive. I stopped by my hotel just log enough to pick up the keys, then went off to the friday night concert. Afterwards int he hotel room I found that I'd screwed up about half of friday's journal recordings. *sigh* Saturday started early and went late with the afterglow party saturday night,which included an absolutely smoking improved rendition of Aretha Franklin's Natural Woman. Sunday wrapped things up with some business talk, good byes, and the long drive home. This time, with pleasant weather! (always makes the drive better) I got to clear out most of the backlog of unlistened to podcasts with all that driving, and had a really good time. The car, with its new transmission, performed very well. Now I've got another half-dozen plus albums to rip to iTunes, and some great ideas.

So, because last night I had cause to introduce a new crop of people to Radiskull and Devildoll, I got the bright idea that I wanted to somehow put this onto my iPod, which has video capability. If I can get it into a movie format, I can convert it for the iPod. I know there are plenty of tools to convert standard .flv flash videos (like youtube's) into useable movie files, but I'm not finding anything for the more typical .swf files. Anyone out there with good suggestions?

Where else can you catch 6 diverse A Cappella groups and support charity at the same time?  Come out to Framingham on January 28th and see Slapdash Graduate, In The Moment, Firedrill!, Lowell Gentlemen Songsters, Boston Jazz Voices, and None Of The Above.  Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. An absolute steal for this much music.  Go to http://www.noneabove.org/fcl/ for full information.

I hope to see some of you there.

If $12 is too much for you, but you'd like to go anyhow, there's some opportunities to help us out and see the show for free.  We need a few people to help with tickets at the door, and perhaps to help with refreshments as well.  Let me know if you are interested.

Oh, and for those of you who were at Saturday's party, and wanted to know, what I pulled up on the Pod was "The Scottish Song" by Seamus Kennedy, which can be picked up at http://cdbaby.com/cd/seamuskennedy10

For those not there, it's a telling of MacBeth in song format.
Rather complete too.
