Record and Ride launch concert

We’re only a month (and three days) away from the start of the project! Things are slowly piecing together. In the next couple of weeks I should finally have gathered all the necessary equipment for cycling and recording.

Also, Doppler has finally been repaired! The rear wheel that had been bent by the Eurostar team was bent to beyond repair… thus I ordered a new one and Doppler is now whizzing along!

With everything close to being ready, I though I’d organise some sort of farewell (to Oxford) and project launch event. I could not think of a better form for such an event than a concert!
It will take place on the 23rd March at The Wheatsheaf in Oxford and will start at 8.00pm. The following bands will be playing for you:

Bambino dell’oro. 
Some sort underground and unknown trio of mutants playing a mixture of electronic music and played music.

The Brickwork Lizards. 
A beautiful and tasteful blend of eastern and western music – (https://www.facebook.com/brickworklizards)

As mentioned in their annular report on groovational thoughts: “This is our last gig in the current formation, thus, we shall attempt to groove your faces off?” (I’m sorry but I’m not to sure what that means?)  (http://www.myspace.com/alamakotaband)

The tickets will be available on the door and cost £4 and £3 for concessions.
Please share the facebook page for this event: https://www.facebook.com/events/253345711416884/

I hope to see you there!

News and Call for Artists and Supporters

It has now been a couple of weeks since my Reading-Rouen cycling trip. Sadly I have not had a chance to get my hands dirty and properly repair Doppler. The wheel and the gear-changer are still slightly out of place, nonetheless, Doppler is rideable.

In the meantime, I have kept myself very busy! I have just finished an application for a grant from UK Arts Council and sealed a deal with Sennheiser who will provide me with two amazing HD 25-1. Also, I have submitted my resignation letter so there is no going back now!

Finally, I would like to use this post as a chance to call for Artists and all types of supporters. If you’re an artist and want to be recorded just send me an email. If you want to support the project please share this website with all your friends, tweet it, re-tweet it, facebook it ect… This project is based on social networks – each one of you can potentially be a link in the chain of artists I shall be recording! I’d love to hear from all of you! 🙂

Thank you to all of you,

Your grooverely,

Nicholas O’Brien.

Call for sponsors or anyone willing to help

Today is the day when I finally launch this website! As from now expect to see regular updates during the trip’s organisation!

At this stage of the preparations, my main concern is gathering all the necessary equipment for recording and cycling. Which is why I am calling out for sponsors or maybe benefactors (if I’m lucky!). If you think you can be a direct help – please get in contact – or otherwise share this website with people around you!

Thank you!
