You Play On

Just published a new album on Wikiloops, and here’s its front cover from Flickr:

Wikilonians Online Jam

Sharing a Youtube video from 2012 here:

Like Dick & Mr. Baer said, you’re invited – and it’s free. Join us, it’s fun! 🙂

Wikiloops artwork…

After trying out the new and upcoming artwork for Debian 11 “Bullseye” on my desktop (see my last post), I downloaded the poster art for the last Wikiloops member’s meeting in 2018, and tried that – and so this is how my desktop looks right now:

Fits, because first I’ve been there (which was great), and second I’m a bass player… 🙂 So thanks to Dick for providing this – and thanks to you for viewing/reading, as always.

In the winter of our lives

Just found this tiny little gold nugget from the end of 2015 in Wikiloops, from Ms Patty and Mr Paul:

Awesome. Thanks Patty & Paul – and thanks to you for listening.

Setting output levels in Ardour

Some fellow musician in Wikiloops asked about output levels of songs, and how to get these. I tried to answer it to my best knowledge, and also explained how *I* do this using Ardour. Since version 6.3 of Ardour there are two ways to export to a certain loudness level, and I hadn’t fully explained that before, so I did it now – and made a short howto video about it:

In case that is useful, I’m glad that I could help. And as always, thanks for reading, and watching/listening.

You play on

What an awesome track from Anne and from Benjamin – just had to grab one of my instruments and to play… listen to “You play on” on Wikiloops please, and if you like it give some thumb ups to the musicians. Thanks!

P.S.: got a remix from David after an hour or so already – thanks a lot my friend!

As always, thanks for listening.

Up in D Dorian

Sat down with my guitar to try out recording with the new Ardour 6.8, then decided to speed up the whole thing, and to continue with an off-beat metronome, and with my bass. I uploaded the whole short uptempo track plus one with my bass only to Wikiloops, now hoping for remixes onto this shorty:

As always, thanks for listening.

What a nice remix!

Got a remix on a duet of Shi & me yesterday, from Croatian drummer ‘denisk’ who didn’t only play the perfect drums for the track, but also added his first ever guitar recording on our classic (in Jazz) ii-V-I progression. I also really like how he resolved my tritone in the middle, really cool. So what started as a lovely gospel-like a capella in Wales now went through Europe in a \ (backslash) kind of line…

Don’t touch, on Wikiloops

Thanks again to ‘denisk’ and to Shi – and thanks to you for listening.
