I'm going to go to this! I'm looking forward to it!

Can you, with Stephen's permission, record the talk, Fernando?

 

Chris

 

I don't mind doing it Chirs, but I don't have any device for that purpose. Maybe I can use my mobile, I have a memory card in it, I think it will be enough to record all the talk. I don't know about the battery... this talk is going to be 3 hours or so...

Gosh, that's a l...o...n...g talk, Fernando. Sounds like you might need an old-fashioned reel to reel tape recorder for the purpose! (or a modern digital Edirol) Maybe Stephen has the means to record some or all of it. Perhaps you could ask him? :)

Wouldn't it be nice if Stephen actually recorded a Video of his talk! ;)

 

I'm quite sure a lot of enthusiasts wouldn't mind coughing up for a copy ... myself included. B)

I will ask him Chris, I he agrees I will be ready for recording with my mobile. But I have no camera for this, only the mobile. I will have to think in something to say, I want to be in the recording! If I cannot think of anything, I will cough or something :D

Sorry guys, but I made a big mistake! I'm writing this in a hostel in Ennis just besides the Clare County Library. I thought the talk was going to be there! I got confused because I didn't read well the announcement in facebook. Here is more clear, I can see that the talk is in Milltown Malbay! this is not too far from where I am, 20 miles far. But I don't have car, and I don't know how I'm supposed to go to Galway early in the morning from there...

 

What a pity! I was ready to record the talk...

 

Well, I will stay in this hostel, and now I'm going to look for a session!

Steve hauled out a part of 'the collection' The ones in the photographs are a mouthblown predecessor/prototype by Wheatstone and the very first Wheatstone attempt at concertina. There was an array of other instruments on display.
