New Videos from Pianoteq in Prague

I want to blog - i really do! But guilt has me working on way-overdue projects first before i can allow myself to indulge in unplugging the data-dam in my brain. In the meantime, i'll leave you with some videos that i managed to post up to YouTube in a jiffy, mainly because i didn't have a separate audio track to synchronize, but also due to my experiments with the Vista version of Windows Movie Maker. Nothing to really write home about, but the transition effects are nice enough and it "does the job" of slapping video together in a semi-presentable format.

From Wallenstein Castle in Prague, during my Music Technology lecture demonstration, i present to you these videos showcasing the expressive capabilities of the Pianoteq" virtual piano program:



Here's a neat comparison pitting the Pianoteq program back to back with a Petrof concert grand:



Again, my apologies for the mediocre audio quality, due to using only the Canon GL2's embedded microphone. I've since realized that i need to invest in a high quality, portable XLR microphone input solution (which i have - details and review coming soon!).

Many thanks to the Music Bridges International Organization for inviting me to participate in such a lovely festival! I'm still waiting for the audio tracks to put together clips from the other two days of performances, so be sure to stay tuned for more video from Prague.

Well Twitter Me Timbers...

For a guy who is as much into technology as i am, i can be surprisingly daff when it comes to jumping on board certain bandwagons. I'm sure y'all have seen the "dati-pation" (*kaff kaff* - er, data + consti...you get the drift) that's been plaguing this blog, simply due to having WAY too much to write about, but unfortunately not enough time, energy, or inspiration to actually put finger to keyboard (concert trip to Prague, recital in Bermuda, the joys of my new Sager 9262 laptop, all the amazing goodies i've been acquiring to beef up my video studio...sigh...) I've known about Twitter for some time, but simply didn't find the Web 2.0 micro-blog idea all that appealing. Funny thing is, i've been trying to find exactly that, but in a more "formal" format for use with my new VX6800 WiMo PDA Phone from Verizon (why aren't there any decent blogging programs for Windows Mobile phones?) It took this article by Greg Sandow to convince me that Twitter was the way to go (or at least, to give it a good whirl).
Could Twitter become the "data-mucil" to help me get back into the blogger's swing? Find out as you start tracking me below and along the sidebar to the right!

Interview with Karl Middleman of the Philadelphia Classical Symphony

In preparation for a concert with the Philadelphia Classical Symphony on Oct. 31, 8 pm at the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia, Hugh Sung interviews the PCS's Artistic Director Karl Middleman. Karl is a master of thematic programs that bear the fruits of his amazing scholarly insights. The Oct. 31st recital will feature soloists Madeline Blood, harp, Hirono Oka, violin, and C.J. Chang on both viola and violin, and feature works by Mozart, Stamitz, Boieldieu, Beck, and the remarkable Afro-French Rennaisance composer Chevalier Saint-George.
