82a Sunday Session 1st February 2015

Them what was here: Melanie Eden vocals, Tim Reeves drums, Peter Busboom guitar, Arron Manfield, Craig Collinge keyboard, Ryan Light guitar, Fergus Leahy guitar, Benni Seidel guitar bass. Visitors: Alistair (Azo) Bell, John Samaha …

No pics. No recording.

Disappointing. It was a bit like a group of people all trying to push a ball
in different directions at the same time.

The Sound Cloud archive shows the potential when people listen and cooperate

If you’d like to be involved, to guarantee yourself active participation
and to facilitate the technical requirements and the set up of the space
Please confirm & make your needs known
No time wasters please!!!

You can still drop in un-announced
but there’s no guarantee of a spot or that there’ll be equipment provided

No longer attempting to record everything
In the past the recording of a lot of moments of magical musical genius :-) were missed when people started to play without much consideration for anything else that’s been going on.
The room will now be unceremoniously told when the ‘tape’ is rolling

If you don’t wish to be recorded/photographed/videoed or have your name appear
on the 82a Sunday Session blog, Sound Cloud, YouTube and/or other public media, please inform the facilitator on the day

Strict neighbour breaks of 15 minutes
No amplification or drums

Guitarists: We love ya butt(spl?)
it’s a small studio and there are already three adequate amps to share
Fender Princeton 65 watt – Roland JC 120 watt – Vox AC 30 watt
At times there have been up to six guitar amps (on one occasion all in use at once)
If you insist on using your own amp, it’s not going to guarantee you can play all the time
Please advise if you’re willing to allow other people to use it (not mandatory)
so we know which house amps to include in the set up and the allocation of recording resources

Technical and spacial set up. Any assistance will be welcome. People with a particularly complex set up should attempt to get in before the session starts

Doors open on a new time frame
1:30pm to 2:30pm
A period for throwing around ideas/structures people would like to prep for the 2nd period
2:45pm to 5:15pm Free and/or structured improvisation. If it hasn’t been discussed in the first period, forget it.
5:30pm to 6:30pm “VA@82A” = Virtually Acoustic free and/or structured improvisation with essential amplification only

Drummers: There is a substantial close miked drum kit on a riser. There is no room for a second kit!

Bass Players: There’s an adequate in house bass rig

——– end rules ——–

What you hear or see when you arrive doesn’t indicate or dictate the whole afternoon. There’s access into the PA for IPod, IPhone, IPad, laptop, CD and there’s a dedicated laptop, projector, large screen, ‘Band in Box’, a big blackboard, reams of paper and marker pens so everyone can be on the same page!

Address, full details and participation only on registration via the form
