Here I am at Consonance, blogging from the audience listening to Dave Rood's Interfilk concert. The auction will come after that; I don't know at this point whether my preorder package will end up in voice. (update: it did; $150. The wenching is strong with this one...)

Our concert slot went pretty well. I say "our" because this was the world premier performance of the group "Très Gique" (feel free to correct my French if I got the accent wrong) -- me, [livejournal.com profile] cflute, and Joyce Uggla. Some glitches and a lot of really rough transitions (dropped lyrics, mic fiddling, and problems deciding what to do next) but pretty good on the whole. We sounded good, at least in the monitors, and that's the important thing: some of those songs really came together. I always imagined "Demon Lover" and "Silk and Steel" with flute, and Callie's voice/whistle part on "High Barratry" was a honk.

Hopefully the recording came out OK. A lot of my being flustered and confused came from taking too long to set up the rig and then being on the wrong input device. Lost a lot of [livejournal.com profile] cflute and [livejournal.com profile] tibicina's concert as a result; hopefully I caught the last song at least. Pretty sure I did I did.

Wish I was there. Sounds like you're having a good time.
Glad your preorder package did well. I got a bargain at $20 ;)
See you on the 17th if not sooner.

You sounded good!

If your recording failed, I was recording from the boards Tape Out jacks. Haven't checked the quality yet though.
