Cocktail Hour

CocktailHour-titleI recently got married! We had taken care of every detail about the wedding. Centerpieces, layout for the backdrop of the ceremony, pictures, planning for the weekend (it was kind of a destination wedding), water bottle design, and of course, the music.

My (now wife) suggested that we use some of my music… why I did not think of this, remains to be figured out still. So, with a couple of weeks to go, we wanted to create something along the lines of Layers, a music installation.

I had her make some selections, and I did as well, and then I got down into my tracks and split them up to be in a layered format.

I then needed to find the hardware to pull this off. I at first wanted to have the tracks played from wireless speakers, without using a secondary MP3 player plugged into the auxiliary port, but could not find the right stuff.

I finally settled on the DOSS Touch Wireless speaker, with a cheap-ish MP3 player plugged into it. And it worked brilliantly.

Now that the wedding has past, I wanted to share this to my few faithful followers. This album is a modified version of my previous work from Atachafalaya, VR:1, and Eavesdropping – each have been split up into two layers, designed to be played simultaneously from two separate sources.

It is available for Name Your Price on bandcamp only. Pay nothing, or, pay something. You decide…

Enjoy! Let me know your thoughts…

Test of Wedding Cocktail Hour Music Installation

This is a test of the music installation I am doing with my music for cocktail hour following the ceremony at my wedding.

See this post for more information on the setup: https://musicalnature.net/2017/04/27/new-music-installation-my-upcoming-wedding

One change I have done from that post was use a separate cheap MP3 player into the auxiliary port on the DOSS Touch portable speaker so I could better control the playlists themselves.

In the video I say the track is “The White Horse” off my album Eavesdropping, but, it is actually “Victoria”. “The White Horse” was on JUST before this video was shot… sorry for the confusion!

Please, if you feel so inclined, throw this video a like and leave a comment!
