You dont have to wait for the next electro-music.com streaming event to have some fun. Several of us have been streaming music informally from computer to computer on the weekends. Just come into the chatroom anytime...people are usually streaming off and on all weekend long from Friday night to Sunday night.

Depending on your computer, you can stream to several people, play as long as you want, and have fun playing in an informal environment. There is much more freedom available to the player in this scenario.

It's also a great way to practice your streaming as well...getting better familiarity with the software makes things much easier for streaming events in the future, without the stress on you and the engineers trying to figure out problems in time for a performance. :bangdesk:

The Gathering - Nov 15, 2003 - Philadelphia

Orbital Decay Opening The Gathering
The Gathering is perhaps Philadelphia's premier electronic music concert venue. Last night, November 15, 2003 two local groups, Orbital Decay and The Ministry of Inside Things shared the bill. It was another fine evening of live electronic music for which Philadelphia is globally known.

Orbital Decay, a duo consisting of Terry Furber and Scott Watkins opened the concert with a single multi-media piece, called Galactic Sandstorm (correct me if I didn't this right, OD). Terry said after the concert that the score for the music was the video itself. It indeed is an excellent score. Terry has been working on the video for months. The video is made of images of trees, clouds, space pictures (real photos from Nasa including the Hubble Space Telescope, and artists' animation) , and many computer generated images basted on fractals. Terry is really getting into making videos. I expect to see these at all future Orbital Decay performances.

The new video is really beautiful. The form of the piece is symmetrical; starting from Earthly views of trees and clouds through views of the macro universe - planets, nebulae and galaxies, into the mathematical constructs of expanding or contracting fractals (zoom in and out - simultaneously) and back to Earth in reverse order. The music follows the video through alternating sections of pulsating pattern-based rhymthic sequences and spacey ambient soundscapes.

Orbital Decay breaks new ground at every new performance. Not only was the visual part impressive, but the music itself was as usual top notch. To me, the music seemed to have a number of melodic themes that unified the 45 minute set. I think these melodies were mostly played by Scott on the processed guitar, but it's hard to tell with electronic music. I do know that Orbital Decay does not use any prerecorded music. Everything is played live in real time. They are purists in this regard. This gives their music a perceivable level of excitement, even in the most relaxed ambient sections.

Unabashed shameless plug: Orbital Decay is one of the top selling artists on the electro-music.com. Why don't you order a few CDs? Help out the artists and help support our site. Click Here!

Ministry of Inside Things
The Ministry of Inside Things, Chuck Van Zyl and Art Cohen, finished off the concert in fine festive fashion. Their set started off with search lights spinning around the old church with a heavily processed voice saying something like "standby" repeatedly. The musicians came "on stage" in the darkness and when the lights came on they appeared in splendid costume - white tuxes with huge white hats! Art was holding his red electric guitar and Chuck was standing in front of a keyboard rig on a stand. I was surprised; I've never seen them go "show biz".

The music they played was again alternating ambient spacey music separated by pulsing sequences in 4/4 time. I especially enjoy Art's guitar playing. He sometimes plays obtuse non-tonal melodies that are quite original. Often he plays bluesy figures with the pulsating rhythms as well. I must say, I thought of the Blues Brothers at times with the costumes and the wailing blues guitar sounds. Lot's of fun.

They did two pieces that sounded quite similar to me, but the last section of the first one was exceptionally beautiful. There was a very sparse sequence of bell-like sounds, but the tempo was considerably slower than usual. This was more like an adagio. This sequence was supported by a beautiful drone-like like pad - not strictly a drone; it did change pitch at a very slow tempo. There were haunting melodies on top. I was reminded of the beautiful slow movements of Mozart.

That was the last Gathering of 2003. I look forward to 2003.
