It was a really nice experience! although I wasn't able to hear everything (also due to freezing-up behavior of my media player) I found the music of high quality. !Bravo! boys and girls.

Happy new year!

Also, thanks for giving me the opportunity to perform for the first time. Loved all of the performances i heard (01.00 GMT and onwards). Hopefully we can hear them all, if someone did a full recording of the party.

Cheers!

That'd be great!
I dropped off a bit after Antimon's performance and would love to hear all the others.

I can't thank enough all the participants for the wonderfull evening.

Cheers,
Joao

I'm listening throuh the recordings I made of the event. Some amazing stuff happened after I went to bed last night !

The recording seem pretty complete to me, 10 MB more than I had calculated, but the noodles seem to have run much longer than I anticipated (the last mp3 is of 2006-010-01 12:28 GMT)

I'll need some time to sort it all out as the the recorder made a bit of a mess of the track names and the directory structure.

I'm now listening to Deknow's party, which is really nice. Before that I heard Rbedgar's performance, an amazing one and very nice to hear after waking up :-)

Didn't hear Howard and Greg's session yet, but read some good comments in the chat window (that I still have open).

Did someone make a text recording of the chat session ? I lost the first six hours

{ and it's a pain to get al the text selected in this PITA java applet (sorry, it's nice I mean except for some very irritating details, like the sounds for instance, the impossibility to resize it or to grab all the text from it)}

Oh em, I meant to say that it's nice to read the chat while playing the tracks.

It was great !

Seems like my stream recordings didn´t quite work out. I am pretty sure what I have here on disk is not complete. Sad
Hopefully Jan has the lot on "tape" Very Happy

hey...we all had a blast. having breakfast now (ate the pancakes, the bacon is finishing up, and almost time to start the eggs.....and of course coffee. i loved all the music i heard last night (we had the stream from 2 until the end of howard and greg's set). my cell phone can be connected to the computer for internet, and i wonder if it would be enough bandwidth to stream from.

i think this was a huge success on all counts, and i look forward to the next time. thanks everyone....mike, mark, ocp, jono, esp, antion, mike, howard, greg, and rbedgar(sorry, didn't catch your set).

Thanks to everyone who performed, sent in mp3s, sent in noodles, working on the software, and worked on the servers. A few of us listened to the entire evening. It was an excellent concert. We had party guests over here who have never heard this kind of music and they really enjoyed it.

For me, this is the first kind of international internet virtual concert I have ever heard much less organized. It's a very powerful experience. The use of the chat room was a great way to bring everyone together. It reminded me of the early days of folk music (the sixties). We used to have hootenannies - parties where there was a lot of music. People would bring guitars and take turns singing or leading songs. It was great fun. I loved folk music before it became commercialized.

Anyway, it's amazing how I feel that I shared this experience almost as though everyone was here. Great people and great music. What more could you ask for?

If you have any comments about this particular New Years Eve event, please leave them here. I'm going to start a separate thread about future events. I learned a tremendous amount about the technology doing this. There are several thing we will do differently in the future.

Thanks again, everyone, and Happy New Year to all...

I found the whole experience most enjoyable. Got the chance to play my stuff to some new people without having to leave the studio, and heard some good new music from the other performers.

The stream quality was generally excellent, as was the music. The chat room made it much more like a 'real' gig, but seemed a bit unstable at times and kept disconnecting me.

It would be really nice to see a transcript of the chatroom for the whole evening and catch re-runs of the sets I missed.

Big thanks to Mosc and Jan for organising this and to all the performers for the music Very Happy

Has the schedule been changed during the night ?

I've some strange things in the recordings I made. It is all a bit complicated ... I could use some help here.

Let me try to explain.

One of the mp3's (which got labeled as "radioelectro-musiccom mvictor & crobertson jam for the world spontainious noise and improv from the basement lab.mp3" has a duration of 171:40). This file however stops playing after about one hour (in winamp that is)

When I open that same file in CoolEdit it is shown to have about 128 minutes of content.

The beggining of that file seem to be mvictor and crobertson (the beggining of that session ended up in another file, so apparentlythere has been a drop out or something)

It seems to continue pretty soon though with something that to me sounds most like Howard an Greg playing. Although according to the schedule it should have been Deknow and also Michel Victor should have been on longer, or maybe more of that performance was dropped or something)

Deknow & friend's performance however ended up in some other file time stamped at a later time.

Can anyone give me, for the time span sketched above, a rough estimate of how things happened in reallity ? About approx. at what time who performed for how long (just for the sets I was talking about above) ?

Hmm apparently it's al Howard and Greg, as it seems to be encoded at variable bit rate, and that's why WinAmp has trouble with the timing aspects of it (and FooBar as well).

I forgot to mention what a great experience this was: A world-wide open mike for electronic musicians!
What a great job you behind the scene guys did. Howard, BlueHell, Greg, and the rest.
Michael and I want to thank you for letting us be a part of this.

The schedule is pretty much as it is published on the site now. We made a few changes as things were developing. Modular ESP went a little long, so Antion went on about 10 minutes behind. No problem with that. Greg and I finished up about 15 minutes early. I was having some problem resetting the parameters in the relay server so there may have been serveral false start with relaying of the wrong ports.

Thanks everyone, for the kind words.

Hi all,

Roger Winkelman and I almost didn't make it...we had a serious storm that came through, and my internet connection broke for 5 hours...got it back about an hour before we played! I'm the kinda guy who wants technical things solid 24 hours before a gig...so I was frayed...

A most frustrating aspect was that I heard noone's live music! We literally finished our practice and setup and hooked up winamp to listen when the first sounds were Howard announcing that they were stopping...argh! So I'm hoping that this will be available. Hearing this group's performances was a huge draw for me, and I hope someone who recorded the 'extended' evening would be willing to share it.

Thanks to everyone for the technical help, and to you Howard for allowing a newbie to play along. Roger and I had a gas.

Later,
Robert Edgar

I'm glad you did make it, I liked your gig very much ( from the recordings I made last night).

Re. the recordings. The track titles are are a mess and some noodles leaked into performances and the other way around, a lot is in mono, but otherwise things seem reasonably complete to me.

I've uploaded all the raw recordings I made to a special area on E-M, don't know what will be done with it - that's not really up to me, you know copyrights and that sort of nastyness.

When I can find a tool to edit in it lossless I could try to make things a bit better organized, when people would like that, but decoding and re-encoding is not doing justice to the material (I tried). When it's just for myself, I'm happy with the raw recordings as I have 'm .

There is a lot good stuff !!

Just a minor detail: if the schedule is to go into the annals or something, I would like my performance to read "Antimon", with an 'm'. Not a big deal, but it might help to avoid some confusion Smile .

And expect no copyright fuss from me - anything goes!

I am still undergoing the emotional sensation of the NYEP, I managed to stay up untill the end with Rbedgar and what a party it was.
Thank you for allowing me to participate in this experience. I'll never forget. It was great.
Once again thanks to everybody involved in it, particulary the ones who had all the trouble to concretize this event. (Mosc and Greg)

Unfortunately I have no records of the event so if anyone has anything that would like to dispose I would be thankful.

I am already waiting for the next one and with more people streaming.
It would be nice if we could Jam on air at the same time.

Jono: Yes, someday we'll be able to to jams, but not with the technology we have now.
