DemiCon 16: July 29-31, 2005
Last year's music room exceeded even our wildest expectations. So we are, of course, going to
do it again this year. We will, once again, feature a mix of performances, jamming, circles, and panels.
A musical performance is, well, a musical performance. Basically, the performer gets up on stage, performs, and the audience listens and enjoys. I'm sure
you all know the drill. So what makes the DemiCon Music Room different from, say a bar? Well, for one thing, it's not all icky and smoky. For another
thing, it's just down the hall from the consuite: close enough to get snacks, but far enough away that our noises will not conflict with one another. For
yet another thing, we have some of your more unusual acts. The performers are musicians who are also fans, so things are certain to get interesting. As of
this writing, we are still accepting musicians who wish to perform.
If you wish to perform, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
so that we can start working out where to fit you in in the schedule.
We are still considering ideas for music related panels. If you wish to propose an idea, feel free to let us know by emailing us at
Last year's music circles were a lot of fun. This year, we're going to
it all over again with a folk circle structured as a standard 'pick,
pass, or play' music circle. There will be no set leader, instead the
control of the circle will pass around the circle, and each participant
may choose to play a song, request a song from another circle member, or
pass the choice on to the next person. As before, anyone is welcome to
join in on a song. The choice passes from person to person, not the
performance. If you have an instrument to bring to a circle, please do
so, the more the better.
