G.L.I.O recordings from Woodland Pattern

Another short post just to share some of the audio that has been recently uploaded to SoundCloud.  The recordings are from the Great Lakes Improvising Orchestra performance at Woodland Pattern, that I wrote about in my last post.  The recordings turned out well and it’s fair to say that everyone really enjoyed performing together.  One of the really enjoyable aspects of this performance, is that not all individuals had previously  performed together, therefor providing an opportunity of finding new ways to integrate one’s voice within the orchestra.

Five pieces were played in total.  All were conducted by Hal Rammel.  Below, I have put links for two of the selections; the remaining can be found here.

Upcoming Performances

I have a couple performances coming up that I wanted to let everyone know about.

The first will be Sunday, December 16th with the Great Lakes Improvising Orchestra at Woodland Patterns, in my very own Riverwest neighborhood (Milwaukee).  It’s an afternoon show, starting at 2pm, for a mere $4.  The ensemble consists of 14 of Milwaukee’s finest composers-who-improvise and improvisers-who-compose, with a very diverse list of instrumentation: voice, winds, strings, guitars, electronics and percussion.

The second performance will be MiLO: A Very Special Holiday Extravaganza!  The gang has decided to throw our hats into the “holiday ring”, complete with bad Christmas sweaters.  I hope… well, maybe not.  Some Christmas sweaters are pretty scary. [shudder]  The event will take place on Thursday, December 20th at the Sugar Maple in Bayview (Milwaukee).  This one starts at 8pm and goes on till we’ve had enough holiday cheer, beer, and have generally forgotten the rest of the lyrics to “O Tannenbaum”; if we all ever even knew them.

Hopefully I’ll see some of you for one, if not both of the events.  Ciao!
