GEAR SHIFT ELECTRONIC MUSIC JAM SESSION

GEAR SHIFT ELECTRONIC MUSIC JAM SESSION
Loop, 23 Meyers Place, CBD, Melbourne

Clan Analogue?s Gear Shift monthly electronic music jam session moves to a new phase of waveform synchronisation when the next event takes place on Wednesday the 27th of August at Loop on Wednesday the 27th of August. Whether you play a laptop, smartphone or piece of hardware, old or new, whether you?re a seasoned performer or complete novice, anyone can come and join the sonic mayhem.

This month Gear Shift will be honoured with a rare set by Audiomulch software developer Ross Bencina performing live as Mulchwerk. Rhythms of the past will pulse, collide and dissolve into texture and ambience. Mulchwerk perform using Audiomulch and an array of controllers.

The Gear Shift jam starts at 7pm at Loop, 23 Meyers Place, in the Melbourne CBD. Arrive early for participant registration. Video artists Object_State provide a live behind-the-scenes projection mix of the knob-twiddling action.

Anyone is welcome to join in at Gear Shift. Just bring a synth, laptop, drum machine or any kind of electronic music-making gadget. The night is a great opportunity to play electronic music with other people, learn different techniques and try out new gear.

Gear Shift is supported by the City of Melbourne through its 2014 Arts Grant Program and takes place at Loop on the last Wednesday of each month.

Bring gear to join in or listen & enjoy. Live set from Mulchwerk after jam.

this upsets me
On many levels.r

#^European Championship in danger for Rob Cordemans after accident at homer
r

The Dutch National Team might be losing its best pitcher for the European Championship. 39-year-old right-hander Rob Cordemans burned his throwing hand while igniting his fire place at home. He suffered second-degree burns according to a news report by #^AD.nl. The pitcher of L&D Amsterdam is sidelined at the moment. It’s uncertain if he will recover in time for the European Championship in Regensburg and the Czech Republic from September 12 to 21.

The (Amsterdam ) Pirates have also just qualified for the Holland Series and I like their chances against Neptunus a lot less without Cordemans anchoring the rotation. As I said, this sucks on many levels quite apart from the pain the poor guy must be in. Second-degree burns are no laughing matter.

I'm not a fan of baseball, but I knew the captain of the Italian National, Giuseppe Carelli. He is on Friendica, but I struggle to make him lose the habit of using only facebook


Community page with public posts of every server?
@Friendica Support @Friendica Developers At the moment it is hard for visitors and new users to find interesting users and to see that friendica is living. Especially on small servers you only see the posts of a handful of users on the community page - although there is some more interesting stuff on that machine.

I'm thinking about changing the community page in a way so that it would show public post from users on every server that are available on that server. Of course it has to respect the settings if a user wants to hide his profile. Since Diaspora users don't have this setting, I would add their posts anyway.

What do you think?

I like this idea.


Me too. This could enhance the value of community page.


I think that it is a great idea, at least it gives exposure to other content. I just hope that is it technically feasible.


It is a two hour job, I guess. If I have to extend the protocol then add maybe 2 hours.


I think you can show all the public posts that are generated on or are delivered to the specific server. That is "all the public messages of the server's users and their contacts"


@Fabio I do not totally understand. by now the community page only shows the wall posts of users on the specific system. And AFAIK there is no configuration to do something else on that page.

Something else: @Tobias seems to be busy at the moment. Could you have a look at my pull request? I'm having several more changes in the pipeline. (many small design changes) I would love to have my system "clean" before the hackathon.




And AFAIK there is no configuration to do something else on that page.




Sorry, my bad. No, there isn't any configuration. My "I think you can show.." was "I think you can change the query on community page to show.."

I'll look at the pull request this evening after work (I'm back to the office.. :-( )


I would do it a little bit different. I would store these public posts in the item table with the UID set to "0". Doing it that way, I could use a very easy query at the community page and I could easily switch between different rules for posts that should appear there. For example: If a person hides his own profile, then we shouldn't show public posts from other people to this person as well. (Because on very small servers the community page would be very similar to the network page of the users) So the method would be that when receiving a public post, the system would look at the receiver. If he don't hide his data, then the item would be copied. This would be a preparation for a future change that I would like to do. I'm planning to store public posts only once in the item table to reduce the needed database space.


The public posts from other people are indeed public. But if you had a server with only one user, then the community page would be nearly the same like the network page of that user. There could be users who wouldn't like it that other could see, whom they are following. So we need a setting for that. We could use a different setting for that. I would like to copy the items, since these checks could be very complex. Additionally in the future I would like have public posts only once on the system, since this would reduce the needed data storage. Synchronizing the changes wouldn't be a problem at all. There are central functions for storing and changing items, so we simply would add a single function call. If someone posts an item and after it he changes the visibility of his profile, then the changes will be valid for future posts. I have to see, which strategy would work best.



The public posts from other people are indeed public. But if you had a server with only one user, then the community page would be nearly the same like the network page of that user. There could be users who wouldn't like it that other could see, whom they are following.


That's right. But also a "community" page on a single-user server don't have much sense (on my server is disabled...)
And a single user with limited profile will have an empty community page, that way, which doesn't have much sense either.

We can have only public posts from users' contacts, so what we really will have is a "community page which shows some posts from friendica network but only from what we know of", which I'm afraid will put in better light, for new-coming users, bigger servers (in terms of n of users), while friendica should be all about small servers, if not personal ones.
I mean, the most impressive community pages will be the one e.g. on friendica.ambientedigital.org or pirati.ca (two server with many users I had handy)..

Feeling the weight of the world?
Times are strange and you want to find a way to separate you from the drama, if only for a while? The answer to your stress and worry lies within this program. Ambient, chant and meditation music could be the key. We'll hear from the latest Krautrock wunderkind, a North American ambient producer and an Australian chant maker. Absolutely cheesecloth free listening though.

From north-east England, Pauline Murray is much loved in her home country for powerful, crystal-clear vocals and an impeccable songwriting repertoire stretching back 37 years. Murray?s early influences were David Bowie, New York Dolls and Sex Pistols yet Wikipedia also cites synthpop, ambient and electronic among her genres. A truly intriguing artist, this will be Murray?s first-ever Australian performance.

Miriam has been described as ?something of a renaissance woman ??Somehow she achieves the almost impossible in blending patterned western-ed pop writing with the earthy mystique of African rhythms and freaky world instruments.? (Sydney City News).

Miriam Lieberman is a singer songwriter with a unique perspective. She accompanies her powerful vocals with kora ( 21-stringed African harp) and acoustic guitar, performing as a soloist and with her trio: Kate Adams (Cellist) and Lara Goodridge (Violinist). Despite this unusual mix of pure classical instruments and something made from a large gourd strung with fishing line there is a musical chemistry between these players and their instruments that melds into a soaringly beautiful soundscape.

Miriam?s music blends well-crafted songs with powerful and emotive performance. Her unique musical style has developed out of long periods of time spent immersed in the distant places and cultures of the music that inspires her and most of all out of a passion for song writing and performance. I
