I guess it was a great start with fruitful discussions and future
directions. Here are couple of notes for those who could not make it
yesterday's meeting and also agreed rehearsal-schedule for all of us.
We agreed to meet every other Wednesday at Media Lab, 3rd floor for
AULO rehearsals. First rehearsal will be on Wednesday 16th, September
at 17:00. We will meet at the 3rd floor, lecture room. If the 3rd
floor meeting room will be available for AULO rehearsals, later on it
will be possible to begin rehearsals at 16:00 as well.
"Algorithmic Conductor" strategy was highlighted by Matti and Antti
during our meeting, which brought up immediately some AULO composition
opportunities and I guess we should spend some time in our coming
meetings to discuss more on this.
We also agreed to keep AULO in a free-academic structure, therefore we
will have some assignments for each rehearsal meeting. Today, later on
I will send our first assignment for the next rehearsal meeting in a
For the rehearsal sessions, we will need to connect each laptop to the
main PA set up through available sound mixers. In order to do that,
each AULO member will bring audio cables with 1/4 inch jack stereo
plug on one end and with 1/8 inch stereo plug on the other end. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRS_connector
. 1/8 inch stereo is for the common laptop audio output, if you will
have a different setup, you will need a suitable plug for that.
if you will come up with any issues to discuss before our next
rehearsal meeting please send it as an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
, so that your messages will be posted on our blog site and replies
also should be send to email@example.com, so that
everyone can follow the discussions.
I guess all in all it was a good meeting for the beginning :)
