Hi all,

There's been a thread about the possibility of a gathering of LinnStrument players:

http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic ... t=linnfest

I thought I'd post this new topic on the same subject as an Announcement to get more visibility.

I've given this some thought and would like to hear your thoughts. My current thinking is to hold it here in Berkeley over a weekend in August, and to make it affordable at perhaps $100/person, merely to cover catering and expenses. If it's less than around 60 people, I could have it at my home, using my large living room and office for concurrent sessions, plus the garden if needed. If it's bigger, I'd have to rent a space. I'd suggest the weekend of August 19 and 20th of this year, with a reception on Friday night, sessions on Saturday and Sunday, a catered buffet dinner on Saturday night and ending around 4 on Sunday. I'd like to get your feedback on this, for example:

* Would you definitely attend at $100/person? I'd like to estimate the size of the crowd.
* Is August 19th and 20th OK or would you suggest different dates?
* What would you call it? The original thread suggested "LinnFest", though it sounds like "infest". :)
* Would you like to give a presentation or performance? Presentation topics could include performance techniques, coding, performances, techniques for creating sounds in popular synths for MPE or expressive control, exchanging sounds, using LinnStrument with specific DAWs, etc. Geert has expressed interest in attending and presenting. Any presentations or performances should ideally be of value to the attendees, rehearsed and not too long.

Your thoughts?
- Roger

Weekend of 26th would be even better - since I'll be in bay area already.

Unfortunately it looks like there's not much interest.

Unfortunately, we decided to sell our house and move. So I've been tied down with non-fun activities for months.

I'm interested in a getogether at a future date and time.

I wasn't a LinnStrument player yet when this came up before, but I'd definitely be interested if you wanted to do this sometime in the future.
