Live Jam Room

Page history last edited by rafaelmizrahi 11 years, 7 months ago

או בעברית...  חדר הריבה החיה

Directors: Rafael Mizrahi, Eyal Person Shachar, Roy Stoler

 

בחדר זה ניצור מוזיקה משותפת.
כולם מוזמנים: בעלי ניסיון בנגינה, ובמיוחד, חסרי הניסיון.
הכניסה חופשית לכל הכלים: אקוסטיים, דיגיטליים, עשר אצבעות, ואם ברשותך מחשב נייד, אדרבא, תוכל להצטרף אל מעגל הנגנים על ידי התחברות לרשת האודיו והמידי שנספק בנוסף לתוכנת Ableton Live ובנק דגימות וצלילים.

 

The Live Jam Room intends to establish and maintain an open platform where music activity from different areas can be presented in one context across institutional and professional boundaries, in an informal and progressive environment

In plain English: bring your musical instruments/Laptops to the room and join the “MuseNet sound system” band.

hey, impressive !
from my experience on big electronic jams, there are some important things to take in mind:
1- enough tables/surfaces to put the gear on (this is always an issue!)
2- Big mixer board with enough i nputs for the participants
3- electronics can be cruel to the speakers, therefore, amplifiers and speakers should match the requirements, and a compressor/limiter should help to avoid "accidents" with the audio gear.
4- enough electricity holes for all (cables,"mefazlim" etc)

Some friends of mine and me, we did many times this kind of sessions (miklat 209, Levontin7 and Hateiva). The space is very important to create the right dynamics between the players.
If acoustic musicians will join to the jam we will need microphones, stands, xlr's and off course, free holes in the mixing board.
Later...
