I had NO IDEA the lefreQue could do something like this!! While most people might use lefreQue to enhance their existing sound, I've discovered that the lefreQue can be used to change your sound. This is extremely useful in professional situations when you sometimes actually get a sound that your instrument just can't really produce. The lefreQue can change how your own flute responds!! Cool stuff. :D

This has definitely been on my mind for a while, but I was testing it out on my myself and my students for a bit before sharing with you guys. It's weird because it works... or does it?
There's still a bit of a dilemma in my mind, where, if I am imitating someone else's sound, have a truly found my own sound? Or is the nature of my sound simply that of a chameleon? So my interpretation of how everyone sounds is my sound?
The word "sound" is starting to look weird to me as I keep typing it.
What do you guys think?
I'm moving my Practice with Me's to Twitch! My Twitch handle is justanotherflautist.
This move has been some time in the making. I initially got the idea from last year's YouTube demonetization crisis, when a lot of my videos were also affected. Now, the threat is even higher as I've watched a few YouTube channels get fully deleted by the YouTube algorithm due to copyright claim abuse. It's out of control, and quite frankly, I don't think I can do much to fight it.
Now that I think of it, sometimes the best way to fight something is to just leave it.
I'll still be doing my talking videos on YouTube, but I plan on restricting my playing/practicing/performing content to Twitch, at least until things calm down (fingers crossed) on YouTube.
See you guys on Twitch!
I REALLY didn't feel like setting up my lighting this week! Oh well... This video turned into something that felt super personal and real though, something I miss about videos that aren't done with professional lighting. It was fun to sit down and chat with you guys with absolutely nothing to hide. I'm in my pajamas, talking to you guys on a Friday night. It was really nice. :)
I'm planning on having this kind of relaxed set up about once a month. It really draws me back into reality and reminds me that I don't have to put on a show. Healthier for the long run. Hope you guys don't mind!
Happy 2019! I'm happy to report that I'm starting to get used to playing around with this 50mm lens! I rather like the way this video turned out, and the better audio thanks to the USB condenser microphone helps too! I can't wait to have a space where all this stuff can just be set up indefinitely--that's the dream, guys. As of now, it takes a good 30-45 minutes to set up the lights, camera, and microphone properly. And even then, I forgot to turn on the shotgun microphone on my camera! That means I didn't have any back-up audio to sync with the separate audio file I got from my condenser microphone. Yikes! I learned my lesson.
I hope you guys have had a wonderful a start to the new year! Wishing you guys the best in 2019. <3
