In this You-tube drenched world, every new idea needs a supporting video, so creating one has been at the top of my "To-Do-When-I-Have-Enough-Time" list for simply years. It took much longer than I had hoped, but at last the "Introduction to the jammer keyboard v 1.1" video is up, explaining the basic concept and giving simple demos:
I can see lots of things that could be improved in it (and my friends have been most kind in giving suggestions), but even this seemingly simple, 6-minute video took weeks of work, first to find and select the right tools, to learn how they work, and finally piece together the thing.
I hope that this video entertains and informs. It's fun exploring a new musical world, and reporting back findings to my musical friends. With this video finally available, and more time free, more postings are in the works. Watch this space (or RSS it) for postings on the surpising value of symmetry in keyboards; What 's key in learning the jammer (and what it can't do); and a review of the keyboard learning course Musiah, and more.

*FYI, I am using Camstasia for the video editing, along with Snagit to capture screen shots and annotate them. They work well and are relatively easy to learn.
