HELO (Huddersfield Experimental Laptop Orchestra) has just confirmed its first ever gig as part of the HCMF Revolutionaries project.

Laptop Revolutions

8pm @ Caf

Just a collection of some of the portraits I have got to shoot recently.

So since the Intel switch I have recommend the Apple MacBook as the best choice laptop for all sorts of situations.

It still offers a stable, Tier 1 build quality, the advantages of the OS X, the ‘i’ apps and looks good.

However with the new release models there has a been a number of significant changes and not all for the best.

The Firewire 400 ports have been removed from all the laptops and only a single Firewire 800 port remains on the MacBook Pro.

In terms of music production this is a major problem as compatibility has been lost with many pro-grade soundcards for the MacBook such as the MOTU 828. Its also bad news for video people as well.

At the moment I am not sure what to suggest; the MacBook Pro is more expensive and is bigger mmm I will have a think.

You can find the MacBook specs at http://www.apple.com/macbook/specs.html.

After an enjoyable summer break the inclusive improv crew are ready to go at it again

Coffeevoution, Church Street Huddersfield

Is a great opportunity just to come along and make some music, noise and sound – but also a great evening out.

(It also has some research outcomes as well – he he he)

Today I had the opportunity to shoot some frames at the park…
