For as long as YOU have known me, I have been singing. For the last ten years in particular I have been doing performances on the internet in an online world called SecondLife. If you ‘played’ secondlife you would be able to come to one of my shows and chat and dance and lots of other things as you listen. But it is also possible to listen in without having to set foot in secondlfe.



HOW TO DO IT & PROBLEMS

All your internet gadgets can stream sound. The way to tune into my stream is to put URLs, like the two below into your itunes, or browser, or watever. I do know that some people, trying on some gadgets, and using some operating systems, have had problems getting it to work. It is just a matter of trying other ways until you find the one that works for you. Sometimes CHROME works better than SAFARI - sometimes it’s better on a desktop computer than on a phone - sometimes better on VLC etc. I hope it works easily for you.

In your browser you will be taken to a page like this. Click on LISTEN














In your ITUNES you will probably have an option called OPEN STREAM, or similar, click on that and put the same URL into the box. Hey presto.


WHEN CAN YOU LISTEN

Work from whatever timezone I am in - that is in NSW, Australia. I have 3 regular shows, fortnightly, where the time and the URL stay the same (mostly).

I also do one-off shows, and shows just for you if you really wanted :)

When and if I do any extra shows I will list them here.


CLICKING ON THE APPROPRIATE URL BELOW, AT THE RIGHT TIME, SHOULD MAKE IT ALL HAPPEN IN A BROWSER


Every second Saturday at MIDDAY

(15 August, 29 August, 12 September etc)

If you’d like to test all this out beforehand to make sure it works for you, then just let me know and we can organise a time to do just that.



A few disclaimers & a bit more information

  1. I perform as a person named Bright Oh. I do this to protect the good name of the family.

  2. I do carry on like a bit of a goose at times, because I am a bit, and because the audiences are very interactive - they are asking me questions, tip me, and I may be promoting the people who will be taking the stage after me. I may be flirting with a woman named Precious Rallier - so be ready for that.

  3. People in secondlife have very imaginative names, like Bright Oh, so if you hear strange names, that’s them.

  4. There are somewhere between 10 and 50 people at my shows.

  5. All the songs I perform (250-300 of them) are either written by me, by a handful of my friends, or in collaboration with these same friends. So you wont be hearing my version of Like A Virgin by Madonna, or anything else you aleady know, anytime soon.

  6. My shows last for 60 minutes, starting on the hour. With a little overlap to switch over from other performers before and after me. My STREAM wont start for you before I am actually LIVE - so don’t panic.

  7. The music is being streamed and therefore it can be affected by buffering and technical stuff, at my end and yours. It is unpredictable like this. Try again another time if it gets annoying.


WOOT THATS ALL FOLKS! Let me know if you run into any problems.
