Virtual Electronic Music Open Mic (VEMOM)

Welcome to the VEMOM! Inspired by the fantastic EMOM events, but from the comfort and safety of your home.

First one will be on the 26th of March 2020, 7.30PM - 11PM UTC, you can sign up on Facebook, or just get the informations here :)

For the audience

The event will be streamed on my twitch channel. Audience participation and feedback is encouraged. You can create an account on twitch to be identified when commenting, but you should be able to comment without it (but anonymous).

For the performers

Each performance can be maximum 10 minutes. This will ensure the event feels dynamic to everyone. Between each of them, I'll introduce the following one and, if possible, ask a few questions about the music. Does this sound similar to a regular EMOM event? Yes! that's the goal :)

For the performance in itself, there's a few options:

Whatever the option, make sure to respect the time limit.

If you're performing live, you will need to be able to perform via twitch (see lower).

Registration

To register as a performer, send me an email (q.leonetti@gmail.com). As the schedule will fill up, it's first come first serve, and priority to people that will be present on the night.

Livestreaming advice

You will need to create your own channel on twitch and setup your streaming system. This will typically require software like OBS. Make sure you test it well before the day, as this can be fiddly. I would advice you to set a low video bitrate (around 1000 or lower), and low framerate(20 is usually enough). This will help avoid dropped frames and buffering that are disruptive to the enjoyment of the music you're sharing with us :)

Thank you all!
