Silverlight Flash Mob

Despite how it might occur in search engines, I am not suggesting any form of attack on Adobe Flash.

Rather, I am proposing a Flash Mob event at next week's ReMix in Brighton.

In my previous Silverlight post, I mentioned the excellent Silverlight Piano application.




I am sure that by now you have all had a go at Ode to Joy and hopefully you have been trying to work out the notes for your personal favourites. In which case you will have realised that not all of the notes are there.

Why else do you think I ended up with Ode to Joy and not Hotel California?

So here's the plan. At 1.30pm during the lunch break on Friday in the main hall, I propose that as many people as possible (with speakers on full) launch into Ode to Joy. It could be like the Last Night of the Proms !

What do you think ?

Whatever you decide, I have worked out a number of tunes for you to try. You might note a bias towards festive tunes. I worked them out to cheer myself up whilst hiding in my hotel room during a trip to eastern Europe last winter. Incidentally if you follow the previous link to the hotel, I assure you that my room looked nothing like any of those featured.

Furthermore, the food shown in the dining section must be 'stock'. I can still taste the Bistecca Boscaiola that I ordered that came topped with ketchup ! I am so NOT over that trip.

Anyway, moving on ...
