While musicians can’t perform live or in groups right now, Bandology has been working on several Play A Gig Online options for musicians to perform from their home thanks to the power of the internet.
Here are four ways that keen musicians can still share the pleasure of music online.
Online Performance Options
Virtual Performance Series
The easiest way to start sharing your music online is our Virtual Performance series. Simply send us a video of a piece you’ve been working on. It can be either a short 30-60 segment or a full piece of music. You just need to film yourself playing the piece then send it to us at Bandology, along with a short bio. We’ll polish up any audio issues and post it via our social media channels.
Online Livestream Series
Here’s your chance to perform live without the pressure of an audience. Our Online Livestream series gives musicians a chance to perform live on social media by playing 3-4 songs during an hour-long livestream. You’ll also chat with a Bandology musician about music, performing, rehearsing and the power of music, and compare notes about playing and musical inspirations. The Online Livestream takes place via Zoom and is streamed live to our Facebook page.
Musician Showcase Series
The Musician Showcase series amps up the performance factor as you go live on Facebook playing your own set list of music. Over the course of 30-60 minutes, you’ll go live on your own Facebook account while Bandology hosts a watch party for our social media followers. You’re in control of this event – you introduce yourself, speak about the songs you’re performing and talk about your musical inspirations and what music means to you. To make it easier, you’ll connect with one of our Bandology musicians who’ll explain the process, give you guidance on the technical aspects, and provide encouragement and advice.
Collaborative Jam Series
Ready to collaborate with other musicians? Here’s your chance to gain experience in performing virtually with a diverse group of musicians. Here’s how it works – contact us with the piece of music you want to perform and the parts you are looking for. One of our Bandology musicians will help you find other musicians to collaborate with. You film yourself performing the piece, which is then set to the other musicians to play against as the main track. Then the Bandology team takes all the footage and assembles it into a final group video. Bandology will screen the video via our social media channels and voila! A very cool collaboration.
