Pull, Merge, Push – Online Music Collaboration

When I tried Composer the other day, I especially liked the approach they took on collaboration between musicians. They really seem to think of it like working with repositories when it comes to managing input from different sources and keeping track of revisions etc. Source: Online Music Collaboration, https://www.composrapp.com November 16 2014 So maybe there’s is github for musicians in the making, or at least there should be. What they really should do is, is provide an environment to share and collaborate […]

Composr – Online Music Collaboration

Composr – Online Music Collaboration

Although I think the idea for this app is absolutely awesome, I am not quite sure what to make of it. In the end, for something real the app just lacks the functionality of any basic recording setup. Also in chrome the performance is pretty poor, even the metronome is laggy… I did’t try the iOS App I must admit. Collaboration is nothing new to music production although I admit, it is hard to find people to collaborate with on the internet. Once you find them, I suppose it is easier to work with conventional solutions like Logic or GarageBand etc. and share files and projects via Dropbox or Google Drive.

Rock of Ages - Las Vegas - 2

Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages is an amazing musical set in the 80-ies Rock era in Los Angeles. Recently I stumbled upon this Love to ROCK TV Commercial. I absolutely love it, but I am still a few visit away from having seen it 178 times… yet, I might add. If you are interested in how this musical came into being, there is a nice documentary created by coin called The Road to “Rock of Ages”. Sadly, the art of Rock of […]

My Polaroid Gallery

Today I started gluing recently produced instant photos to the wall… So, here’s the first iteration of a personal Polaroid gallery. Since we needed to cover some boreholes, we started with a rectangle. Let’s see where it might end. I used tesa Tack, double-sided adhesive pads, to fix the photos to the wall. Despite all the negative comments on Amazon, they seem to be strong enough to hold the photos on my wall so far (no wall paper, I might add).
