A bit over a month ago @Angela and I had a nice catchup with @dan_derks, and among talking about community, and the Gib Gab sessions (free lessons/mentoring/advice/etc…) that I’ve been doing for just over 5 years(!), we got to chatting about how something like that could be interesting but as like a “live” thing, or at least, a “video” thing.
@Angela and I chatted over the idea a bit, and after a bit more thinking, came up with the idea to try filming the next Gib Gab session I do (if the person was down of course).
Unrelated to this, @infinitedigits had just listened to my episode of Sound & Process and decided to message me about a Gib Gab. I pitched the, at the time unnamed idea, to him and thankfully he was down!
So with that I present the first Particle Castle Bubble Party!
Although other people don’t generally get to see/hear this, the “Gib Gab”-ness of it feels very similar to me. Zack and I have a wonderful and wandering conversation around some of the subjects he initially emailed me about, as well as tons of other things that emerged organically.
@Angela edited it all together (in a super flowing way I think!) and put in media/images where relevant, and we’ve put links to everything in the video description as well.
The idea is for this to become an ongoing series, like play talk play, also under the overall Amplifiers & Explosions thing (which in a post-COVID world will also host physical humans in physical spaces).
If you’re interested in being part of one, let me (or @Angela) know.
For the time being, this would ideally be with people who can film themselves and their setup somewhat well (decent phone/light) and is handy with OBS/recording to capture their end of things, since it turns out trying to sync so many stream-y sources/framerates was a big ole PITA.
We have some ideas of where to take this in the future as well, but for now, this is a good place to start.
