Stet Lab December 9th 2008: audio recordings

Audio recordings of the December 9th Stet Lab are now online.

We’re happy to be releasing these recordings under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 License. [More info…] We’d be very interested in hearing any thoughts you may have regarding the license (especially if you have performed at, or plan to perform at, a Stet Lab event) so please leave a comment on the relevant thread.

The December Lab was a great way to end the year with everyone playing at their best: Bruce Coates’ 60+ minutes of invention, Sarah O’Halloran was funny as hell, Neil O’Loghlan anchored the improbable ensemble, Kevin Terry rocked, Christian Martin leapt into the deep end… and even I (Han-earl Park) would have to admit that I played pretty well. It was also a pleasure to perform for an audience in such good form (it wouldn’t have been half as good without you).

A big thanks to Veronica Tadman for holding the Lab together during our recent difficulties; navigating the maze of reshuffles and negotiations. This month’s event could not have happened without Veronica and Kevin’s organizational skills and foot work. (Also a quick thanks again to the Cork Indy for their write-up.)

And thanks to all who’ve come to listen over the last year. Hope to see you again in 2009 for more real-time mutations and hybrids!

    I have to agree: a great way to end the year. I’d apologize for being late and causing a perhaps-premature end to two of the improvs as a result of ill-timed entrances and a fit of the giggles (shared with Bruce, I might add; not sure that made it on to the recording). But hey, maybe I’m just making clear that the audience really can shape the performance. It was a really fun event. Wishing Stet Lab a tremendously successful and entertaining 2009!

    Thanks for the comment. I completely agree that that was a pretty good demonstration of off- and on-stage interactions… and, yes, they are beautifully captured on the recordings—listen to ‘sure you’re feeling sick?’ and ‘looking for an exit’—in fact the latter title is a reference to it!
