Track: Social Event
Greetings ESA musicians and music enthusiasts!
To continue our tradition of bringing together community and fun at ESA meetings with music “for ecologists, by ecologists” we’d like to invite you to a virtual music interaction space on Tuesday August 3rd.
We will be meeting in InSpace (here is information on the platform https://www.inspace.chat/) a new interactive video platform that feels like you are walking around at a party, rather than sitting through another zoom meeting! During the first half hour, we will use InSpace to just hang out, chat, and get caught up. Then we will host an "open mic" session where we will sit in a virtual ampitheater. Anyone who wants to can sign up for a slot in the InSpace chat. When your slot opens, you will share your video and present a song, poem, story or whatever you would like to for the group to enjoy.
Note: Just like a "real" concert hall, seating is limited! InSpace will support an audience of only 50, so try to get there promptly! If the room is full, you will receive a message, and you can try again later.
No one is obligated to present, so please show up to just chat, enjoy the entertainment, and support the entertainers!
Here is our schedule:
4:00 pm - 4:30 pm PDT (= 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT) Enter InSpace, meet and chat with friends new and old
4:30 pm – 5:30 pm PDT (=7:30 pm – 8:30 pm EDT): Open mic session (Share a song, poem, story etc)
Here is the link for getting in to the ESA Music Presentation Inspace room:
InSpace works on Macs and PCs, but you will need to use the Chrome browser, and your gmail or microsoft account to log in.
We look forward to seeing you there!!
