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. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

On Sept 6th 2018 I did a performance at a private event (audience approx 500 people). I performed Ethnicolor 1 part 4 (2017 Liebana/Masada version), Chronologie II (which I did back in 2014) and Stardust (completed in approx 4 days, that was a crazy sprint!). It was my first performance of this "magnitude" and obviously it was not without problems (I had several audio dropouts, thanks Windows 10 ver 1803...) but overall it was a success. The audience was obviously very diverse and obviously not JMJ fans but they seemed to enjoy it, esp. the Stardust butterfly dancers.

Don't mind Ethnicolor, I had less than 48 hours to prepare it (and I almost scrapped it, but it was such a good opening, so I kept it - I knew that that audience wouldn't notice). I improved it in orders of magnitude (it's unrecognizable) for my Sept 2019 performance, which I'll upload when I'm done editing it.

Enjoy!



For reference:
- my full album version of Chronologie II:
- Stardust multitrack demo: (I did it as I had had people accusing me of "playing JMJ CDs", well, I guess that's the ultimate compliment?)

And fun fact about Stardust: I changed it just before the show when Stéphane messaged me "you might want to change the choir sound... here's the patch we used in the original Stardust" :)

Looking forward to the new video! I tend to listen to your version of the 4th part of Ethnicolor (2010s style) over the original anyway ;)

(Would still love a proper release of the 2017 concert, but we know how those things tend to go with JMJ...)

Really? Wow. I mean there's always the Liebana recording (although it's shortened and doesn't have the dubstep part). Glad you like it though, you're gonna love the upgrade.

Oh yeah, while the Liebana recording is very good, I didn't really like the cuts made to Ethnicolor 1 (though they are understandable given the concert circumstances) regarding parts 3 and 4.

It is... and it isn't. For instance, said Ethnicolor was mixed in a strange way, so that the bassline cannot be heard (and that's why my cover from 2018 doesn't have any) I learned later on that there indeed should be one (and so my 2019 version does have it).

Damn, there's always something! I'll re-rate the Liebana recording as "pretty good" from now on. ;)

Also, pretty cool for Stephane to tip you off regarding the choir used in Stardust! Maybe one day someone will reveal and perhaps even share the missing D-50 presets used in Revolutions http://www.thhe.dk/Roland_D-50.htm <_<

Yeah, it was a bit unexpected! I also got some stage tips from him.

Two fun facts that I remembered:

1. One of the sound guys apparently worked at JMJ Electronica Tour concert in my hometown (where I met with Stephane and JMJ)
2. During Ethnicolor you can see me playing the bass with the left hand (I decided to improvise it), but... it was NOT MIXED PROPERLY. So you can't hear it on the recording. Replica level: META

Since this topic got butchered during the forum crash, I'm reposting the original first post:

In Sept 2018 I did a performance at a private event (audience approx 500 people). I performed Ethnicolor 1 part 4 (2017 Liebana/Masada version), Chronologie II (which I did back in 2014) and Stardust (completed in approx 5 days, that was a crazy sprint!).

Fun facts: 1. I changed Stardust just before the show when Stéphane messaged me "you might want to change the choir sound... here's the patch we used in the original Stardust" :)
2. One of the sound guys apparently worked at JMJ Electronica Tour concert in my hometown (where I met with Stéphane Gervais and JMJ)

Enjoy!

Thanks. Why if I may ask? Was it because of the light show or Ethnicolor?

It is a friend of mine who is a huge JMJ fan and not on Facebook or the forum & he really likes fan covers & I was impressed by the whole show, music and visuals & wanted to show him this.

Glad you like it so much. As I mentioned I did another show exactly a year after that and Ethnicolor sounds infinitely better than this "let's try to do it in 48 hours" attempt. I haven't uploaded the video yet as I first need to record some video proving that it is my work and not a JMJ CD playback, and I haven't gotten to it yet (0 experience in this regard).
