The first of many posts this week; Mister Tim!
The extremely talented and multifaceted Mister Tim will traveling through Ohio in May! In addition to his already scheduled show at Macedonia High School, he is looking for other coaching and/or performance opportunities around the state. The dates he is available currently are May 13–15, 18–22
If you are a school or group and would like some coaching, or a venue that would like to book Mister Tim for a show, you can send him an email [email protected]. If you need more direct contact, please send me an email and I can provide more direct contact information.
In the meantime, be sure to check out his videos!
So I got an email earlier this week asking if we were still around since there haven’t been many posts or updates to the site or Facebook page since last summer. Good news; Yes, we are still active! Bad news; I ate all my pizza-rolls so now I am posting this.
Last year was a busy year for me personally so keeping tabs on all that was going on was a bit much. I mean, I at least should have posted something about Pitch Perfect (aca-i’m-sorry!).
Anyway, this year looks like it has a lot going for A Cappella and many good things in Ohio. While I am not going to say I will have more time than last year, I will say I am going to make more of an effort to post things more often. Be on look out specifically this week for a handful of posts and news articles because at least one will be pretty awesome.
Books on A Cappella?! Yup.
The founders of The A Cappella Blog are embarking on a project to write a book about everything A Cappella. It will include everything from vocal percussion, to competitions and recording. But there is a catch: They need to reach a pledge goal of at least $2,000 by March 26th if they are going to embark on this amazing project. Head over to their Kickstarter page and make a pledge today!
Also, for those that may be new to the Aca scene, you should also check out Pitch Perfect. While it’s focus is about college competition world, it is a great read for anyone with any interest in A Cappella. Did we mention that it is also being made into a movie set to be released this year?! Even if you don’t want to buy it (which you should), it has been found in Libraries, so go check it out.
While you won’t be able to do this from your home, the advancements in digital networking are bringing about some amazing opportunities for real-time collaboration. While video chatting is nothing major as we have all used Skype, researchers are re-thinking what it means to have have real-time collaboration. Taking into account what the time it takes for the human brain to actually process acoustical information, they have finally create a method that is extremely close to real time.
