Live stream Singalong Sunday with SURPRISES – Replay no. 8

New set up

The last couple of weeks Maurice and I have been talking about improving my online gigs a bit more. One way would obviously be with better sound. But to do that, we needed a new mixer.
 
Another way to improve things, was by using a backdrop. As you’ve seen since gig no. 4 I’ve had a black backdrop behind me (and I’ve written more about that in a previous blog which you can read here!).
 
But still we weren’t satisfied. So we kept brainstorming and this resulted in a total makeover of our office. One wall is now dedicated for my live videos, with the black backdrop, colored lights on the wall, and a small table with flowers.
 
No more need to redecorate every week!
 

Visual surprises

Then Maurice came up with the idea of making a short video to start every live gig. And he also made an introduction, to show right before the video starts, which will kick off the live stream.
 
After that he also made a credits video for after the live stream, and something else for during the live stream.
Well, you really must watch the latest video of May 10th (right below↓), to see all the new things Maurice has implemented to improve the visual experience of my Singalong Sunday live streams!
 
Oh, and for those of you who saw it already on Facebook: Maurice has fixed the synchronization of image and sound, which was a bit off. And he deleted the black screen at the beginning, which was a mistake. It should’ve started the way it is now.
 

So, all the more reason to watch the replay (again). πŸ˜‰ Enjoy! Read more below the video and the song list!

Sound improvement

As we hoped, our new mixer has arrived, yeah *doing a happy dance*! And for this Sunday, May 17th, we’ve planned to start using it. This means that the sound of the live streams will drastically improve!

This also opens the doors to finally start recording all the covers that I can play, as well as my own songs, and to upload them to both my Vimeo and YouTube accounts.

So if you want to be notified when the first songs are uploaded, make sure to like and subscribe to my video channels!

Right now I’m rehearsing at least TEN requests for this Sunday. It promises to become a wonderful live stream again, with some beautiful songs! So I hope you will be able to join us!

And to encourage you a bit: we’ll have another HUGE visual surprise in store for you!

Remember, there’s a Singalong Sunday every week! Same place, same time!
