Artists Facilities Meeting - Wednesday 7th october

Postby élodie » Thu Oct 01, 2009 11:25 pm

Hello guys !

The next Artists Facilities Meeting will be next Wednesday 7th of october at 7 pm. My description will be quick... sorry

The points that we have to exchange :

Forest's sound material set up : from saturday 17th to 18th october in the Hall

The Cave : Rehearsal/Practice room or/and Recording studio

The Darkroom : some jobs to do before the re-opening (walls...)

The Printroom : same that below (more or less)

The Café : Damaged stage. Café and Events working group is concerned too.

The Hall : permanent black curtain ? Open or close.

The Balcony : what's new ?

I think it's really quick but efficient ;)

Hope to see lot of you there.

Elodie

the Forest Art Festival (i.e., arranging murals for forest walls) is now being dealt with by Front of House WG which is more appropriate given the definition of front of house.

Darkroom needs a bottomliner. We spoke to Daniel Abrams(?) who was the last one, on speakerphone. He apologises for not being in touch, but he no longer wants to do it.

AP: Nix - to clear his space and provide adequate access immediately!

4) Screen Print. waiting to hear about a grant, in the next month.

5) Black Curtain for hall. Elodie has all the dimensions. We should apply for a grant and get a proper one made. by a pro company. it needs to be robust.

OOPS! :oops:

we didn't talk about Pianos.

I propose, we get an electric one for the stage, this new one we have been offerd could go in the cave. and the one in the cave now could be freecycled.

Elodie has the number for James Brown the Piano Tuna. yes? We should get him in and pay him to tune the pianos.

Yep !

I have got James Brown number. I will call him the week after the setting up in the sound stuff.

Concerning the Cave. This is part of my EVS project, but I really want to work with the new bottom liner. It could be cool !

Since then, see you next week end !

Elodie told me that you also spoke of the workshop I would like to arange the 1st november. It is about introducing KM, NM, admins and EVS to the mixer and the projector.
Alex (sound engineer) said he might help out with the mixer part and there were some who was against this. I just want to explain that It is not a "Sound engineer-workshop" but a brief intro to "don't panic - if the soundengineer is out for a smoke and the sound feeds back / or this is a jack cable - if the artist asks for it".

Anybody disagrees?

This was discussed, sorry I missed it from the minutes.

It was not that anyone opposed it., I personally think it is essential tha everyone has some basic training.

it was just that is was thought best to try and do it in some kind of structured way so that it would be of most benefit to most people.

So, at the Tech Team Weekend, after we label, and categorize everything to make it all simple and easy,

we will make a "Basic Forest Cafe Sound and Light Guide"

and hen it will be easy to show people how to set things up and deal with panic situations.\

I was also thought that 1st Nov, (I think this was the proposed date) was not a good day as it is straight after Samhain.

maybe the following week?

thanks.
