Saturday, February 13, 2pm EST: Mike Tietz will share his perspective on and answer questions about Jamulus: Jamulus is not just a wonderful (and free!) way to play with other musicians with almost zero latency online – it is also a big worldwide music party. All of the sessions are open, and once one has their own Jamulus account, they can surf the servers and hear and meet musicians from all genres and from all over the world! It is a perfect standpoint from which to enjoy ACMP’s Virtual Worldwide Play-In as an organizer, participant or even just an audience member, and Mike is the perfect person to inspire.
Saturday, February 20, 2pm EST: Ask Susan Alexander all about JamKazam! Pianist and retired US government codebreaker Susan Alexander will help crack the code of JamKazam! She will be joined by cellist Valerie Matthews and violinist/violist Mike Garrahan from the Carnac Quartet, who were recently featured on the JamKazam Classical Music Festival. Before attending this meeting, take a look at Susan’s article about JamKazam, which includes her easy step-by-step how-to guide: https://acmp.net/jamkazam-playing-chamber-music-over-internet-real.
