Groovy Gig & Google Gives

Preperation for the next Cloud Kollektiv gig on December the 8th is accelerating. I'm mixing Cle's tracks and have all the singers signed on for the gig. We hace Cleonie Wootton (soul), Simon Kelly (warm folk) and Amit Diwadkar (traditional Indian). Now we just have to jam the grooves.

Here is what the iPhone should have been. Google rocks! It's open source all the way and Google are putting up $10million for anyone to write an innovative app for a phone running Googles Android operating system. This is going to be interesting.

You call that a GUI

I have to admit for some reason I have a bit of a GUI fetish. That's Graphical User Interface. So this is seriously hot. I want one on every wall. Touch surround vision.

Along with my deep jazz crew the Cloud Kollektiv getting into the WAMi Song Of The Year Finals and playing the awards on the 31st of Oct, my collaboration 'She Selexx' with Jasmin Yee and Frans (of Halogen fame) have just got into the top ten of the MusicOz awards.

Crazy Jammin'

Sig and I had a ball at the Italian Film Festival opening night at Paradiso Cinema and the Bakery. We heard live opera in the cinema then saw a hot flick called 'The Manual Of Love 2' and received a little show bag (with a bottle of Frangelico) and went on to the Bakery and drank ourselves silly, Great people, great night.The vibes are happening in the Cloud Kollektiv. The first jam with Cle was great fun. We will be performing the track for the first time at the WAMI Song of the Year Awards
Finally for this rather visual post is a brilliant Ad. So COOOOL!

First night in the Clouds

"Too many people are thinking of security instead of opportunity. They seem more afraid of life than death."

James F. Byrnes (1879 - 1972)

Well, we did it. The first gig for the Cloud Kollektiv was a great success. The Velvet Lounge was jam packed and the applause was awesome. Sound was great, the Deuce crew were totally happening and the unexpected video art really worked with the show. Big thanks to Simon Kelly for doing the Cloud dub mix of his track 'Cloud On The Corner'.

Our next gig is at the WAMI Song Of The Year on October the 31st at the Fly-By night club. A very prestigious night indeed for a second gig.
