Villa St. Jean International & Facebook

Two concepts that seemingly never should be linked — the black and white world of the Villa from long ago and Facebook..
Once you’re past the shock, know there’s a Villa Boys group here:

It’s the work of Christian Orenga de Gaffory

Emergency, vsj alumni — our blog is on life-support

All:

Vox announced last week that it's shutting down.
The editor of the villastjean blog, having flown solo for five years here, must turn his attention back to his job.
So we're seeking help from anyone in the Villa fold who might have a bit of time to import the contents of this blog into another format of his choosing..

The Material Support Committee

Music inspired by VSJ’s ‘Sufferin’ Kind’

OK, Villa tech neanderthals, you’ll have to read this report from Cliff Thompson slowly…
Once you’ve got the idea (new music recorded online and inspired by the  late/great villa house band, there’s audio at the end..

More on the band can be found here.

While in Florida working on the family home, (& away from my California home’s music studio (Apple Computer running GarageBand, etc), I’ve started exploring a near equivalent (& entirely Web App based) free & easy to use music creation toolset from Aviary called Myna (Audio Editor) & Roc (Music Creator), comprising essentially an online recording studio. These days I’m particularly interested in a music style that might be described as “Symphonic Orchestral World Music Fusion Rock”, as implemented by those fans of the Sufferin’ Kind Music Circle Project, the spin-off Sufferin’ Kind Virtual Band (announced a while back on the legacy Villa St. Jean Sufferin’ Kind site), the Anti-Terrorist, Jihad-Bashing Band, “Mullah Moolah & the Infidels”.

The group decided to check out the Aviary studio & just finished spending the afternoon putting Aviary through the paces with a short breakout composition, originally to be titled “Hummus, not Hamas”, but later changed. At “Aviary Myna Virtual Studios”, here are “Mullah Moolah & The Infidels” accompanied by “Indignant Camels Oasis Orchestra”, with results of the initial recording session for their new soundtrack “Rehearsal” (http://bit.ly/bItFYK).
