Rock out with your boards out: How Ottmar Liebert uses Glassboard on the road
Ottmar Liebert is a famed guitarist known for his distinct New Flamenco sound, and he has been using Glassboard as a means of communication with his fellow band mates. As you can see, Glassboard has come in handy for them:
Ottmar writes, “We are musicians (http://ottmarliebert.com) and are currently doing a five week tour in the Western United States.
One of the reasons we use Glassboard is that I have been using NetNewsWire and MarsEdit forever, and I trust Brent Simmons to do this right. If, for example, Facebook had decided to do a private Glassboard-like service I would not trust their intentions.”
Their latest album is called “Dune,” and you can listen to some of it here. There are also some live board-recordings from their Spring tour you should check out, and you can download an album (for free!) that Ottmar recorded with Iraqi oud player Rahim AlHaj.
Keep an eye out for when Ottmar will be in your town. Heads up, people in Mexico!
