Week 31 of "Hot Wire" Album 04/10/10) - New drum takes for "Fail you Better" and "Thing Is Not To Forget" compiled and finished ... Paul Mills played beautifully on them as usual ... only need to compile the new drum take for one more song now before I get Pat in to have a run at singing some songs ... he's eager to do so ... I'm getting there bro!
Met our bass player J.P.Speirs on Saturday nite ... Gonna try and get him in to play some bass soon too ... can't believe we started this back in April! ... here's some of J.P. Speirs' own stuff to keep me and you going, till i get him in ... good bass player is our John :)

Filmcamp10 - Glasgow
I went to Filmcamp10 at the GFT on Tuesday ... it was very interesting ... 400+ people turned up ... I think it overwhelmed the organisers a wee bit (they didn't expect so many people) ... but video is really the future of media consumption on all platforms, so they should have expected it to be busy! ... One of the most impressive demonstrations was from Muvizu ... This Scottish company makes a 3D animation software that animates with emotion choice presets rather than frame by frame construction ... I tell you, in 5 mins the demonstrator had created a fantastic 1min cartoon from scratch ... impressive! Check out an example below ... makes me want to go buy a PC!

"The Hipster Bebop Junkies"


MXP4 file format for music
Music Club member Jon Citizen commented on the "Duty To The Debtor" rehearsal video that he'd like to hear more clavinet from me ... this got me thinking of MXP4 files ... with MXP4 files, music fans can remix, re-arrange or re-orchestrate their favourite songs (if the songs have been converted to the MXP4 file format) ... this would be great for all the songs on "Hot Wire", since it's a funk album ... and Jon, you could have as much clavinet as YOU wanted, 'cause you could decide what you wanted to hear :) ... I've been fooling with MXP4 files for a few months now ... they work great ... I'll definitely be presenting tracks from "Hot Wire" in MXP4 format for you guys to play around with ...
Have a go with the MXP4 file of the Jackson 5 classic ... "I Want You Back" below ... let me know what u think?

MXP4 files? Greg, you can be a "daily genius"! :)

Greg - MXP4 files?? You're blowing the music apart - in a BRILLIANT way! This inspires me to do more than use conventional instruments to compose and create. That can only be good.

Thank you.
