Black House Collective's Ancient Inspiration concert at the Nelson-Atkins in collaboration with their Innovation Lab was a success.  Through its duration there were well over 200 people who meandered through or stopped to listen to the whole concert.

All of the composers this time around need congratulations for their stellar work.  Each piece was sounding it's best.  I was pleasantly surprised with how the room, a daunting hard-angled hard-surface box of stone with a barrel vault for a ceiling, actually helped each of the individual parts be heard.  3 and a 1/2 seconds of reverb can be a tricky thing, but all the human bodies in there helped soak it up and make for a nice, lush sound.

I am also excited because the Nelson had professional videographers taking shots of the whole event.  That will be a nice takeaway to use in all of our portfolios.

If you missed the concert, you get ONE MORE CHANCE to come and see all of this amazing work happen.  Here's the event.  This one has free beer if that is a good motivator for you.

Look forward to seeing you all there.
