Re: My first time seeing Vienna Teng live at Alberta Rose Theatre Portland Oregon

Wait, what? I missed my chance to meet the legendary Ang Mo after the Alberta Rose show? Of all the nights to've ended up talking with folks among the seats in the theater rather than going out to the lobby earlier...

Delurking for a moment to say "my mistake"...I realized later that night that I'd said Radio was written in 2009, when it was actually 2008 (I was thinking of the release year, not the recording year). I also said at some point that I wrote In Another Life using an improv exercise, but I h...

Hi everyone...delurking briefly here to say sorry for the sub-par audience experience at GAMH! This kind of thing is really really good to know, so please keep the venue & concert reviews coming (I do read them). When we have as good a time onstage like we did last Thursday, of course we want fo...

Re: live album USB drive details

Hi judytuna, and thanks for ordering the album already! We're putting both the original WAV files and MP3 versions of the album tracks on the USB drive. We thought about converting to FLAC, a lossless compression format, but fewer people have FLAC-compatible music players. The bonus set (4 songs, 2 ...

Q&A with Vienna, August 2009 (QUESTIONS ONLY)

We're overdue for a question-and-answer session, I think. Sorry for skipping 2008; too many things going on! Post questions here, and I'll be answering them in scrapbook posts over the next few weeks. We'll also repost them here, in a separate answers-only thread. This is the slow part of a two-spee...

Whoops, missed the last one...hi silversong! My question is: What are the songs that you find yourself constantly drawn to playing at shows? Which songs show up on every set list? As you might expect, the "hits" tend to get regular play: Harbor, Gravity, Whatever You Want. I like to put th...

Now, for the questions that got posted after my last organizing session... MISCELLANEOUS (part ii) I realize that you bring some faith-based elements out in your lyrics occasionally. What are your current thoughts on spiritual issues? How do they impact the way you do music? I'll understand if these...

Re: Forum Q/A comparison

Perhaps she'll pour one last round. Perhaps I'll try, yes. :) MUSIC PROJECTS Is there anyone you can see yourself recording a whole album with as a side project, maybe covering other themes that don't get explored in your own music? I just saw Kitka perform in San Francisco last week, and now I wis...

I felt uncomfortable posting this here because it is probably way off topic, but since the topic of digital distribution has come up, Trent Reznor recently released the "sales" figures and "freeloading" figures for the Saul Williams digital only release "The Rise and Inevit...

Re: Vienna imitation

Daniel mentioned playing covers of Vienna's music, and it reminded me of something. There's a video on youtube of a guy playing the album version of Gravity (instrumental only). Check it out, Vienna. It's a nice tribute, with a bit of improv interspersed. http://youtube.com/watch?v=CeeFwCd3X0E Oh, ...

Hi. Had to duck out for a few days to wrestle with Finale™, but I'm back now. TOURING any chance of going by here in the Philippines?

CAREER good as your music is, why is it people rarely know about/of it? My best theory is that its merits are subtle: it's not startlingly groundbreaking, or super-catchy in that pop-song-of-the-moment way, it's not particularly danceable, and it's not always obvious what I'm talking about in the l...

SONGWRITING Do you have any authors you would suggest to help get the lyrically creative jucies flowing? Poets have to be both careful and inventive with language—the most of anyone, I think, because they usually have so much less wiggle room than prose writers, and can't lean on music or other dis...
