06:35 pm - Tiny updates on a zillion things
I like to think of myself as capable of blogging about my life, but apparently I am too busy living it and no longer have the diary habit I used to.

So, little micro updates:

- I finished my remix album and am titling it Unremembered. It can be downloaded *for free* here! http://unwoman.bandcamp.com/album/unremembered Also, the bullet-shaped USB drives are almost gone. The physical CD order has been placed and I'll have those in stock in just a couple weeks.

- Doc's iPhone/iPad album is out too! We sent our stuff to press together, so we'll probably do some kind of twofer package with our albums. I sang on a few tracks (the above, I wrote the words too) and even played fake iPad cello on one!


- SteamCon happened last weekend in Seattle and it was fabulous. I played solo at the cabaret, had an outlaw banjo duel with Nathaniel Johnstone, played on one Abney Park show at the big concert, and played on a bunch of Blackbird Orchestra songs. Then a few of us musicians went and talked on a panel about steampunk music hosted by Jordan of Sepiachord (who also wrangled all the music for the weekend.) I met a bunch of fabulous people, discovered some artists (Ashia Grzesik, fellow singing cellist based in Portland, was of particular interest, also a really cool lady) and sold some merch, and I think I'm going to use most of that money for some tattoos in a few weeks.

Romplr remix Unwoman mixing screen

- Romplr, the free remix iPhone app from my former dayjob, on which I have two exclusive songs, has gotten an update and looks even shinier. I will try to post a video demo of that very soon, but I am not sure how long my tracks will be available on there, so you should get it now if you can. Download the app here and find my kits under "freestyle mode." The app is on the Ovi store too.

- Upcoming events: Sunday 11/28 Eliza Rickman opening for Zoe Boekbinder at Amnesia; 11/30 live ustream concert; Sunday 12/05 Heavy Sugar Duo at Gilman St; New Years Eve solo opening set for big huge Abney Park Circus at the End of the World event in Seattle.

Your life seems to be so always musical and fun!

I guess Romplr already dropped your remix kits? I downloaded the app earlier tonight, and the only thing under Freestyle is "Rocket" by Model H. I checked the Store too and it's got six free kits, but yours are not included there either (or under paid kits, for that matter).

Argh, yes, I heard from my former coworker and he says my kits will cycle back at some point (and will always be free.) It's harder for me to endorse it now, but hopefully it will get me a few new listeners.

I think I'm just confused as to whether they dropped your kits when they released the update, or some time in the past couple days *after* releasing the update. I don't understand why they'd do it the latter way, but your post implies that your kits were still included when they released the update.

Anyhow I'll keep the app for a while and give it a try, though I'm not excited about most of the artists that are available (at least the majority that I recognize; there are some I just don't know anything about).
