2) "Mad Carnival" Sound Design Cue from Inferno Haunted House (recording)
3) "Icy Caves" Sound Design Cue from Inferno Haunted House (recording)

Thanks

  • Paul Harriman from Electro-Music who encouraged me to get involved with their online community and also pointed me in the right direction for tools in this regard. Paul you don’t know what you started – lol.
  • Jack Hertz for organizing the concert, creating a cool poster, for helping me to test my rig and for taking the time to teach me how to manage connections and hand-offs to electro-music’s ports.
  • Gregg Cannady who was kind enough to loan me a Theremin for the show as I broke mine just before the show (long story)

Notes on Studio Modifications for Live Streaming

DSC04669

On a technical note, this concert, and my audio/video broadcast  from Boulder to the Pacific Northwest Synth Fest  (talk and performance on Percussa AudioCubes) is the culmination of about 4 elapsed weeks of work to reorganize my studio space to accommodate this sort of performance. Part of that is investing the time to become very comfortable adding another layer of elements to manage while I perform live – so lots of rehearsal.

I’ve learned a lot about using a second system to push high-fidelity video through Skype, USTREAM, and a Shoutcast client. This includes ways to monitor my rig and the conversation in the same set of headphones. I’ll do a post on this in the future which should save you time if you want to get into this sort of thing.

For now, checkout this sound check video I did live to USTREAM. Watch the embedded video below or watch the video on USTREAM. I really get the lights going at 3:16 :^)  I plan on doing a lot more live online performances so if you want to get notified sign up for my newsletter. I’m thinking about doing some behind-the-scenes videos for those who “Join the Crowd”

Happy Halloween!

With all that I’ll just wish you a safe and happy Halloween!

  1. Very cool! I would like to know how you control the lights. I am working on doing my own live setup and possibly doing some live ustream stuff. Starting with the basics for now and then once I have a solid basic setup I will probably start adding more interesting things like video, lighting effects, and such. I definitely like how the audio cubes add a mad scientist style feel though.🙂
