Well, I finaly got the midi/drum/flash/red5 demo ready enough to show at FITC and it was a party to say the least! The crowd was cool, friends helped me out tremendeously to truck gear from the room to the conf rooms and back.
You can see the original demo from home:
After some minor technical issues, I got it fired up and we rocked for an hour
The crowd was really into it, which amazed me. I was just hoping to get it to work and some musicians would dig it, but by the time it was over, someone asked for an encore (which blew me away) and we thew down Subdivisions by Rush.
The first song was Tom Sawyer, which I never made it all the way through for. Then it ended with a Dream Theater montage which you can see here or hear on YouTube.com. Keith posted about it on his blog (BIG thanks for doing that Keith!). www.bit-101.com/blog/?p=879
I just wanted to say thanks to Chris Allen, Keith Peters, Mark Cohn (BLITZ), Robert Gale, Luke Hubbard, Joachim Bauch, Steven Gong, Chris Mills, and Tina Paulson for helping me get it all working, getting the equipment to the stage and getting setup – it was a family effort!!
Below, I included the slide from the presentation that basically explains the flow of what I did. And I thought to include a shot of what my office looked like for 8 weeks (notice the kick pedals under the desk
ROCK ON \m/
