Virtual Steelband

Hello Virtual Steelband participants and supporters,

As most of you already know, we have successfully completed our Kickstarter and are officially moving forward with this project. We are eternally grateful to all of you who have supported this endeavor thus far. We could not have done it without your support. As of now, the Virtual Steelband committee is working on shipping rewards for all Kickstarter donators. In addition, Liam Teague is in the final stages of composing music for us and we cannot wait to play it.

As of now, Pastiche Steel Ensemble is carded to perform as a part of the International Conference and Panorama, held in Trinidad in August of 2015. At this event, we will be premiering the Virtual Steelband video. After this premiere, the video will be available online for everyone to see. This gives us a strict timeline in which we need to record and upload our parts. Here is a tentative schedule:

Sep 2014: Teague’s composition, “Bella Vista” complete

Oct-Nov 2014: Pastiche audio records “Bella Vista” in addition to recording rote learning videos for non-music readers

Dec 2014: “Bella Vista” scores will be uploaded to the Virtual Steelband website for all to access. We will be honored if steelband directors can program this piece for their spring semester and perform it at their spring concerts. If you do, please record it and share it with us. We would love to hear and share our different versions of “Bella Vista”!

Jan – Mar 2015: All participants will learn Bella Vista

April 2015: Deadline to record your portion of “Bella Vista” using Pastiche’s recording as a metronome.

May-Jul 2015: Audio and video engineers will work on the video and have it ready for its premiere at the International Conference and Panorama in Trinidad.

Aug 2015: Virtual Steelband premiere

This is the tentative timeline we are working with. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send us an email and we will be happy to answer them.

If you haven’t already done so, please like us on Facebook, and send us a photo of yourself along with your name and location. Your photo will be uploaded to our website and Facebook page.

Again, thank you so much for the tremendous support.

Talk to you soon. Best wishes.
