Open Goldberg and MuseScore presenting at Classical:NEXT

on Sat, 04/07/2012 - 18:14

Classical:NEXT is a new music conference that will take place in May, in Munich. The movers and shakers of the classical world will be there in force, and it is being called "the big news in the classical music world". Kimiko Ishizaka, MuseScore, and I will be featured as a special presentation during this conference. In fact, we were given own category, and will be featured on the main stage of the Gasteig. Kimiko will one of only four solo artists to perform on the conference program. Naturally we're very honored and excited.

The presentation will be the public unveiling of the digital score and recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations that we've made together over the past 18 months. We will then do a special technical presentation of a new score following technology, provided by MuseScore and SampleSumo. Kimiko will play a section of the Goldberg Variations, and everybody in the room will be able to watch the score (the one we've created with MuseScore) as it follows along with her playing. The score will not only be projected onto the large screen, it will be available to everyone in the room with an internet capable device (granted the wifi is adequate). This amazing technology is only possible because we made the MuseScore version of the Goldberg Variations.

Relaunching on Drupal Gardens

on Sat, 04/07/2012 - 16:45

Today I'm relaunching this site, on Drupal Gardens. is one of the reasons I became deeply involved with Drupal. It has given me a means for experimenting with Drupal, always leading to that next itch to scratch, and thus the next contributions and innovations. My current itch, however, is to not pay for hosting, and to have a site that takes no time and effort to keep up to date. I haven't actually posted to in a while, and it is burdensome maintaining the software for the site.
