Live Jam at Insanitea

  • April 18, 2013 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We'll do another freeform jam. Come prepared to share the audio space, make your jam partners look good, play musical yes-and and make musical offers.

 

This time around, I am going to experiment with live streaming us over Mixlr.

 

Electronic musical jammers welcome.

 

You only need to RSVP for yourself if you are jamming. If you are bringing friends who are not playing sounds, no need to RSVP for them. It is a tea house open to the public.

 

usual basic info to make it as good an experience as possible for all involved:

it is a jam, not an open-mic. don't come here to show off your tracks or to DJ.There are open mic's elsewhere in NJ.

100% original music only. Improvisation required, you should be in control of your sounds so you can change them to fit the mood, give space to others, and solo occasionally if it is called for.

 

Please buy some delicious tea or handmade treats from Insanitea. Ingrid has made her place a real gathering place for the creative and inquisitive community.

 

there is limited area to place your setup. please keep it to a size that will fit immediately on a table in front of you and can be set up in 5 minutes. If there are too many people we will take turns in some appropriate interval (30 minutes or 20 minutes depends on the size)

      I heard someone was there early. It is not Ableton Live only but that is the easiest tool for live jamming. If you have a keyboard synth or a drum pad you bang on that's fine. The emphasis is on electronic music in general.

    This is a jam, so you have to expect an element of suprise for everything. Anyone is free to help us with equipment or suggest a meetup with a certain topic or musical content so long as they also set up the venue and OK it with the venue owner ahead of time. Sometimes lots of people show up, sometimes they don't. bring your friends.

    Took us a while to work out our audio setup because we are constantly dealing with different stuff. It was nice to have a small group so we could focus

    Pretty good. We had some nice moments once we got this flowing. I think some of us could come better prepared. Sound quality was subpar.

    Since I work close by I will probably be there earlier. Last time we were jamming around the big table so look for me there. Richard, are you bringing that giant power stick? Anything else we need?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
