A quick follow up to the Totem Prog IV event last Friday, April 23rd... Thank You to everyone who tuned in to watch MASTERMIND Brasil 2021. We had a strong view count, the promoters were pleased, we'll be working on more shows together later in the year all because of you!
The downside is we've heard from many who had trouble logging in or the video stream wouldn't play once in. All of us here weren't real happy with the broadcast audio production either, so for you who missed it, or those who would like to hear what it should have sounded like, I present the following video link...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=(EXCLUSIVE FOR EMAIL LIST SUBSCRIBERS) = [MASTERMIND BRASIL 2021 Full Set (1080p)]
This is audio and video directly off a Motorola G4 cell phone in the room that sounds like what the band actually sounded like! Interspersed are snippets of the stream "captured" pointing a camcorder at an LCD display, mainly to fill the gaps between cell phone files and preserve the real-time running order. The phone video quality is actually quite astonishing!! If we ever take possession of the original files perhaps we'll show the whole thing, but for now, all of us here are much happier with the room video. I hope you enjoy it at least half as much as we did making it. It was great just to get out and play again.
(ps: the applause was triggered from Carlos' sample trigger pad, hahaha... better than dead air!. Hey, it works for TV! [APPLAUSE] ;))
That's it for now. If you haven't seen it yet, go back and watch our BRAINSTORM 2019 video from Totem Prog III as well. It's pretty good!
In the coming weeks I'll be posting some video of Mastermind shows from days gone by. There's lots of stuff left in the archives!
Thanks again! We'll get through the pandemic and hope to be out playing again ASAP.
Thank you and good night!!
Until next time,
Join me on
