I know that this is slightly off-topic but I would love to pique the
interest of anyone here that is interested in music to participate in
this particular BarCamp below. I think that it's pretty cool what
we've got so far. But it needs that something extra...
Some of you folks may have heard about Signal (www.signalfest.com),
the electronic festival that is happening in two weeks in Chapel Hill.
What you may not have known is that we are trying to break new ground
when it comes to music conference workshops. Seriously.
We're mixing Bar Camp (barcamp.org) with a music conference. As
someone who has attended the "industry" workshops in the past, I think
that it's worth a shot to do something different. I just like the
idea that someone could say, "You know, that topic you've offered
doesn't impress me. I'm going to vote for Abelton Live class
tutorial". So BarCampSignal was created.
So far, we have Mark Hosler (negativland.com) and Black Milk
(http://www.myspace.com/blackmk) along with some local producers
participating at this year's Bar Camp. What I would love to encourage
is anyone who has any interesting is music to sign up and participate.
I would also love to help out with a audio production class with open
source tools or even a laptop jockey tutorial session (maybe with
mixxx? or some other tool--I'm not picky).
Anyway, go to the website. Add your name to the attendees' list. Do
cool stuff. Go to the meet 'n greet afterwards and make connections
with other people who acknowledge that music is an addiction. And
most importantly, have fun...
