Orchestrotica News: A new formation? + Is this industry crazy talk?
Dec 18, 2014
I'm a little behind on sending out our Orchestrotica news; did you miss us? ;-) What I can tell you right now is that we have a new ensemble and project brewing for 2015/16 (probably 2016). It will be different...and there will be...singing!
A New Orchestrotica Formation?
When I put Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica together, it was always meant to be a flexible collection of ensembles/programs that were somehow "exotic" or unusual in some fashion. It wouldn't always be one ensemble, or one genre, as there are too many strange and unusual sounds, people, genres, and ideas to put together, discover and explore. Right now, we have our two formations as the quintet and big band, and I'm hoping to debut a third arm in early 2016. Stay tuned!
Is This Writer Describing You (As a Music Fan/Consumer)?
I tend to follow technology and music industry stuff closely; there are countless articles and discussions going on about the changing nature of musicians, albums, distribution mechanisms, and income streams. What I'm curious about is - what do OUR fans think about some of these topics? So today, I am inviting you to:
I bring this topic up today because we have just five copies of our Esquivel CD left, and I fight with myself regularly as to whether it's financially logical to keep printing out physical mediums for music these days and whether our fans really want to leverage our voices to set their voicemail greetings among other things ;-) Is Ari talking about you?
