Here''s what a music teacher in British Columbia said about these songs:
"I am a guitar instructor in Kelowna, BC Canada and I am trying to teach my students that not all guitar is wailing, distorted shred lines. That you can take an acoustic, put away your pick, and make some music that is more "musical" than most of what you hear on radio, MTV etc...So I was searching Google for acoustic guitar music and eventually hit your webcast. I clicked to have a quick listen and sat through it in its entirety and enjoyed every minute of it.
Thanks, Alan Wagner, Kelowna, BC"
Here are another listener''s comments:
"Thank you for putting your music on the web! How refreshing; beyond unplugged, pure musicianship and poignant lyrics. Thank you."
"wicked stuff... i luv many kinds of music and urs is a new fave "
I love technology when it can be used to do creative and innovative things, especially with music and art. Well, here''s something you may not have experienced yet...
The idea of this project was to first capture a good live session of our acoustic trio David Elias & Xing (pronounced "Crossing"). Then taking those recordings and working with one of the true pioneers of streaming technology, create a highly interactive and informational player that allowed anyone to listen to the 11 songs we recorded through the web.
WE DID IT!!!
You can listen to the webcast at
All you need is to have Apple''s QuickTime player installed on your PC or Mac which it probably already is. Once you click on the image at the link above, you will start hearing the first song in our webcast automatically. You can connect at any speed including 56K modems.
We recorded the songs in one morning as straight takes. There are no tricks or effects in these mixes, just EQ. Why? We wanted the live-performance sound of our shows to be available to anyone in the world! That is amazing when you think about it :)
So here is the CD version of the studio webcast archive. You can buy it, or just listen to the archive on the web, or both! Really, you should go try the player now -- it''s free and pretty entertaining. It''s also featured in the Feb 25th Newsletter from Apple iTunes.
I hope you enjoy our recording session!
