Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

Currently, we are experiencing some DNS problems. We hope to fix this as soon as possible.

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password.

Monaco Royal Wedding Concert – 01/07/2011

Watching the concert again intently at the moment, and it seems to be correct, that some samles of clapping croud were added in realtime (as someone already assumed).

Well, what is this? Kind of emergency plan for audience at home?

Was the mood that bad in monaco? :shock:

I remember concert at Mont Saint Michel that I attended in 1993, were the mood was not the best also...

As for his faults, there's nothing I have to defend - it's a proof that he performed live, less embarrassing than the half-playback shows (which I can understand, if you just have one performance as at Gdansk or Beijing) we had in the past. It was very lively yesterday and I didn't have the feeling that anyone noticed the mistakes any great deal.

And even with the half playback shows as at La Defense, we had the laser harp malfunctioning - it just got edited out for the official video later.

I'm very happy that since 2008 we get real live performances. I'm very happy that he dares to use the old gear. And I cherish the imperfection this sometimes means.
You say there's nothing to defend, then go on to defend it :)

If any other band, musician or whatever had that many problems in a single show they'd be lambasted for it. As a nerd I can understand WHY those problems happen and appreciate that they can't always be avoided, however for a big free concert like that then I think it's a gamble too far. But for a fan like myself, I've seen JMJ countless times and for the past few years we've had the same thing each time, clumsy solos and out of tune synths, I just feel that like his equipment it's getting old. I don't care that he's using a 40 year old synth I just want to hear good music.

We can roughly estimate the audience....it is about 10.000 or little more than it.

Thank you. :)
I ripped the .flv file but something went wrong after about 1½ hour and the recording went dead. :evil:

Thanks, I'll still have to download the .FLV file, but I hope someone has a HD recording of this... Although Euronews did air this in HD right..?

My own theory is that the "mood" you're describing is infact a jaw-dropping crowd.
Jaw-dropping people doesn't make much noise, because how can you comprehend with all the things going on in front of you in a situation like that if at the same time you are screaming from the top of your lungs and clapping hands like a maniac? Besides that photo over the area shows that there wasn't much people just infront the edge of the stage.
An other difficultie would be to actually mic out some sounds from a crowd, jaw-dropping or not, wich would be on an entirely different level then the music. That's what I think.

Not sure if I exactly can follow (I am german, sorry).
Fact is, that at one special point during the over 20 minutes of webstream BEFORE the beginning they switched through different crowd-noises and claps. One of them repeats over several minutes without changing... And that one noise (not to say sample) was added (appeared...) twice to keytar solo of JMJ during Industrial 3... in my optinion.

Really sad about that :-(

Ok you're probably right about the added sounds of a crowd.
Still I don't understand the sadness. The crowd was there, we all saw it. :)

I'm listening to the Waiting for Cousteau opening at the moment, and I have to agree, the clapping and audience noise is clearly not real... But then again, why would anyone clap for twenty minuts before the concerts had even started, it's kind of logical they added it during the first part :wink:

Just wondering, but do you maybe have the entire file with the speeches and everything... It's kinda offputting without the talking :(

I Thought it was a really visually stunning concert. My personal favourite tracks of the night were equinoxe 5, magnetic fields 2, oxygene 4, chronologie 2, chronologie 4 and rendezvous 4. Vintage was nice but to me seemed to be a strange choice of dedication to the new princess... A bit 4/4 techno poppy perhaps! The wedding march also seemed to sound very similar to Queen's version (from Flash Gordon soundtrack) which JMJ downloaded from iTunes a couple of months ago ... But I will relisten as I'm sure it is different :)
Overall, despite the few mishaps particularly with the laser harp (but anyone remember Calypso 2 at la Defense?) a step in the right direction. Hope equinoxe 7 returns though next time :)

I haven't I'm afraid,the toolbar thing I was using to record the audio wasn't supposed to work with Windows 7 so I just stopped/started it for each track in case it crashed & I lost the whole lot.
