Where have I been? May 30, 2007

Filed under: Where have I been? — jenhammaker @ 1:51 am

Well, I’ve been saving myself from the computer hell that is a crappy pc laptop and I have entered the world of the glorious MacBook. In other words, I got a new computer and so what if I’m obsessed with it!!

I’m gonna go so far as to say I love this adorable little machine in the same way I love my cat. It’s just different than all the others. It’s like it was made for me. I suffered through several other cats – I mean computers – and I finally feel as if one loves me back.

I have a hunch that it has something to do with the fact that I just turned 30.

Was I supposed to tell you all that? Who cares.

Here’s the summary of the end of the semester:

~I performed the Rach Vocalise at the chamber music recital.
~I got all A’s except for in Dictation because it’s hard and it blows my mind and in chamber music for obvious reasons.

This summer looks promising.

~I’m going to Hand’s Off 2007! (UK Theremin Symposium)
~I’m going to be playing the role of the Misfit, Stormer, in a hilarious stage version of JEM and the Holograms
~I’m going home to visit my mom as often as I can

My goal for the summer is to create a set-full of cool, hip, fresh traxx on Garageband so that I can get out there and start “hawking my [theremin]wares” on the mean streets/clubs of NYC.

So, periodically, I will post new music in the music section of this blog. See it? Yeah right there at the top right of your screen. I already have one new song up and a new recording of Vocalise. Check it out, please!


Confiscated! May 8, 2007

This evening, I was informed that it was against school policy to have a blog.

I’m currently validating this information.

Until then, I have temporarily removed all posts that I have written about actually attending school. (My firsts two posts are about what happened before I started school.)

I’ll continue to update you all here regarding theremin related activites outside of school . . .
