Of Kite Tricking, Bees, And Synthesizers

Postby Knoted4ever » Thu, Sep 17 2009, 08:05 PM

Here's a video that i just recently made. Cut me a bit of slack... the winds were rather choppy and erratic that day, as you can hear by the sporadic winds hitting the microphone; not exactly beach-side conditions! The synthesizer music was all done by me; i composed it and performed all of it. YouTube doesn't allow the Rush music that i wanted... but i hope my own music will do. Dudes, crank it up high! I sure had fun flying that day... and that's what really counts!

The kite being flown is a Sea Devil Light, made by Lam Hoac. This particular one was just an old nylon sail... not the Icarex fancy sail that i should have been flying!

Hey Dave, do you want to create Facebook events for those, and I'll repeat them out on the IKE feed too the week before each one...

Thanks Jeff, and get Babb to start threads in the festival forums if they don't already exist.

Thanks guys! :-D i hope that people can listen to my music with decent speakers and not just with something like a laptop's lousy audioadulteratedcrapinthesithole!

Jeff, i tried using the YouTube insert icon that is in our IKE message body group of goodies... but it didn't seem to work in the previews that i tried, so i abandoned it. For me, anyway, it would leave a big gap for the video, but the video would not appear; instead there was word "Link" underlined down below in the bottom left, and that was all. :roll:
