february 1 - 2000 coming back to this collaborational project idea: i was a bit too fast and underestimated some occuring difficulties so to speak. as nothing of the collab idea was installed yet i went on working on the samples and didn't stop till i had finished a new piece called "africana" based on an african ceremony. of course this happens sometimes and as "collabs" is supposed to become a common platform i wasn't sure if i should offer the samples nevertheless. and then i decided to do so anyway as this could become really interesting how different music can sound based on the same material in the beginning. the idea mainly came up during our chats where experienced musicians are showing up chatting about what moves their hearts and also spending some time in a free of subject chat. these chats in particular can turn out really funny especially when the chat system can't react quick enough and written lines are shown with a certain delay in between the others thus creating an unforseen syntax.
groups being formed for a certain project shouldn't exist of more than five persons but different projects could be handled simultaneously as i hope. clients should have their own little private studio where they can work on the 'extensions' of the samples and then convert them back into an mp3 format for getting uploaded on the server. they also will have access to a public internet storage site where they can up- and download their mp3 files for other collaborators to get also on with it. the audience showing up here can follow the the progress of each project.

as it looks the uncertainty of emi's development had an expected delay effect on the release of u-she's single "sunday morning", an organized start of the product wasn't in sight for a while. maybe this will change pretty soon now...you never know. and i will let you know, dear.
last not least i am going to change my provider within the next days and hopefully this will bring up more speed besides some new ideas which can be realized here on the internet.cheers and bye for now holgerfor older news versions click here to the numbers: 1,
