Good news and bad news about this week’s Live @ Rehearsal broadcast from my Facebook page.
Good news: I figured out how to do it with soundboard quality audio and, most importantly when it comes to my personal dynamic range, compression.
Bad news: I chose Tuesday night to stream, and the election internet traffic (combined with some router issues) slowed the broadcast to a crawl at points. So, this isn’t too fun to watch, but it’s a solid listen!
Setlist: Dirigible, My Heart (written by long-time blog buddy Jett Superior), Are You, End With Me, Curves Sketched In Letters, Regenerate, Ruiner, Message
Just a few this week, since I’m already focused on improving the audio and video quality for next time.
This is one of my first live runs through “Dirigible,” a deeply weird song that is what happens when I try to write like Gina does for Arcati Crisis. It’s about hot-air ballooning over a world covered in water, maybe figuratively or maybe literally. It’s still a little shaky, but I’m getting close to it being able to hold its own.
It’s also maybe my first internet play-through of “Message,” a song that I love and that we briefly worked up for the band. It’s actually maybe written by Madonna, but in a dream, so you can’t possibly serve me with a DMCA notice about it. I’ll write a better story about it when I have a better video of it, but you can hear it all in the recording. I have some timing issues playing it here without the band, but I think the vocal is pretty strong.
