Week 10. Dead Week. Everything you have been putting off for the term is coming back to haunt you. Then you get a video assignment. Your first thought, “this will be a great opportunity to try stop-motion!” Bad idea. The result is pretty much the same quality that you would expect from a film by Edison, but it works because the piece is from the same era.
The assignment was to post a video of a performance of my jury piece. I figured that since I was already doing so much with It, I would make an interesting video too. Since its a ten minute piece and the process was taking a lot longer than the ten minutes it would take to record me sitting in front of my computer playing it, I decided to just do the intro for now. I felt that doing a boring video would not represent the time I put into the piece.
So in lieu of the ten minute youtube, I will be performing all variations live on Sunday on my radio show (Sunday, June 6, 6PM on 88.1 or online). The Jury itself is supposed to be posted to youtube as well, so it will be available probably in a couple weeks.
As always, comments are greatly appreciated, and are conveniently free to give out!
