" electro-music.com live streaming New Years Eve 2009 floating concert.

To listen, click here!. (on NYE, of course)

We did it in 2006 and 2008 (I think we missed 2007) so why not do it again? Lets have an online electro-music.com international New Year's Eve party and electro-jam. Almost all cultures celebrate the January 1st New Year so this is sure not to offend too many people.

A floating concert is like a floating crap game, it moves around from location to location.

We will set up our shoutcast server to run all day Dec 31 through Jan 1. We'd like people in their studios to set up live streaming of performances, jam sessions, or any kind of musical expression for streaming. The electro-music.com members and lurkers can tune in and share the experience. Hopefully, we will get people volunteering from all over the world to sign up for a time slot. Pick a time convenient for you - it doesn't have to be Midnight in your time zone, but that would be cool.

For those that haven't done live streaming, it is a lot easier than you might imagine. To do the streaming, all you need is a PC with Oddcast (now called Edcast), a free program. If you have a Mac, you can use the Nicecast program (free demo works for a month the last time we tried it) to stream.

If you are are interested in participating, we'll set up a test server just for you to experiment on to make sure you can get it to work.

Once you get your own server assignment, you can test stream all you want. When you time come up on New Years Eve, I will switch the radio.electro-music.com server to reflect you server. You have nothing to do.

If you are interested, please let us know sending me a PM (Private Message) by clicking on the PM button at the bottom of this message. We'll pass out times on a first come basis. I'll stream from my house at midnight Eastern US time. We'll have some electro-friends over to jam. Why don't you do the same? Don't worry about being polished and super professional, this is for fun. Hopefully, we can give some of our DIY synth builders a chance to have their music heard direct from their studios.

It's party time... party time!
All you need to know to start streaming is in the following links:

Edcast (Oddcast) instructions posted: http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-13780.html

Mac OSX users are encouraged to use NiceCast which we have tested.

In 2006 we were able to stream noodles when there was nobody streaming live.
Hopefully we will be able to to this again,.

During the event the streaming will be hosted here: radio.electro-music.com."

Note Richard Lainhart is on the list with the Buchla 200e and Haken Continuum.

The first of many videos to come, now with pro audio recording and mastering!

2 Player Productions is honored to present a third series of videos from New York's annual Blip Festival. Subscribe to our account to stay on top of uploads as we put them up over the next few months. As usual, the end result is a beautifully packaged DVD featuring one video from each of the festival's 32 musical performances + tons of bonus content. You can purchase the 06 DVD on our site for a mere $15 (07 DVD available online in January 09!)

The Blip Festival aims to showcase emerging creative niches involving the use of legacy video game & home computer hardware as modern artistic instrumentation. Devices such as the Nintendo Entertainment System, Commodore 64, Atari ST, Nintendo Game Boy and others are repurposed into the service of original, low-res, high-impact electronic music and visuals — sidestepping game culture and instead exploring the technology's untapped potential and distinctive intrinsic character.
