Julie Waters e-notes: Mon, June 7, 2010

So it's been a bit of time since I sent anything out, and figured I should do a catch-up e-mail.

I'm not going to say a lot about this, but my life changed fairly dramatically about a month ago (those of you who know me personally either know what I'm talking about or should feel free to send me an e-mail asking if you don't know), but the upshot is that I've started to delve into some projects that have been lingering for some time and not getting done due to other factors. Here's what I've been up to:

* new CD project: I'm taking the time to get moving on the new CD and am looking into doing something fairly original with it-- my hope is to use the local cable access facility to video-record the entire process of recording the new CD and making a documentary out of it. It will take me about two solid days to get everything done and I need to find if they've got time available for that. If not, I can still do it from home, but it will be a lot more fun if I can video it and use green screen technology to do such things as make music videos where I play three different instruments and incorporate them all into the same video.

* a line of note cards at -- I've put some real work into the design of these cards as well as the site design, so even if you're not interested in the cards, I'd love to get feedback on the site and how it works for you.

* getting seriously back into pushing my web design skills. I've put some serious time into honing my web skills. One of the major things I learned how to do was to create completely different sites depending on the browser being used. That's my long way of saying that sites have a different layout, design and structure on an iPod or blackberry than they do on a laptop computer. This is fairly huge and I hope to be doing a lot more of that.

In the meantime, I've got a gig coming up in Saxons River on September 17th @ Pleasant Valley, am looking into organizing another benefit show for the Fall, and am the featured artist of the month at the Parker River Wildlife Refuge visitor center for August.

Hope everyone's well!
