PLEASE NOTE this page is no longer updated.
I’ll be back with a bigger and better
streaming resource in the near future.
Here’s a list of live streams (updated daily, check back!) coming up during this period of isolation from the wider group of family & friends with some of my own streams to be added soon. Where you can please share these, join the live chats and keep the community going strong for the benefit of everyone.
NOTE 1 – posts below follow a title // date & time (including location & time zone) // about formatting. Click the title to head to the streams themselves. These are in date order and the links should work to watch them back after the stream as well.
NOTE 2 – A few people pointed out that it wasn’t clear which streams were my own. This list isn’t about me personally but for anyone curious I’ve made the posts italic that are hosted by or include me (DivKid!).

Klaus Mono says
bruno kramm is doing a daily livestream on youtube. he is from the 80s-goth-band “Das Ich” and a very nice guy (inspite of the dark music, hehe). basically, he is explaining electronic music, instruments, synthesis methods, sequencing, etc. to total beginners, but it’s nice to watch. he definitely knows a lot about music.
it is only in german at the moment.
ah great, we met at the TSR event last year. Great guy. I’ll get that on the list. Thanks.

Hi Ben! I do a livestream on Facebook (Stu.goldstein) and Twitch (@stujay18) every Sunday, 5 pm PT/8 pm ET — each Sunday features a new eurorack composition performed live. Gaining some tracking, people seem to enjoy it, so thought I’d mention!

apologies I missed this link at the time. Did it happen? The link looks as if the stream never started.
i also can recommend the “knob twiddlers hangouts” from dutch techno legend speedy j. they talk about music production, inspiration, new gear and discuss the future of the music industry. every episode, very interesting people are invited like richard devine, jamie lidell, luke slater, colin benders, steffi and many more.
i think they take place every tuesday late afternoon. not exactly sure.
here is a link. the next hangout isn’t announced yet:
good call, they’ve been great!
