How will our garden grow?
Welcome to the new home of Rosegarden Television, the new name for the net–studio known until now as Promenade Digital [Mediaworks].
Frankly, the old name was more than a mouthful — and not a very poetic one at that — so I thought it was time for a change. And with it comes a small but meaningful change in the studio’s mission.
Rosegarden Television will be entrusted with the same mission held by Promenade Digital — to document culture where and when we find it. The major change is that all of our productions will be optimized for Internet TV services (Mela, Roku e.g.) that incorporate content from either YouTube or Vimeo (or both). If you can access either, you can enter the Rosegarden. Ours will be a channel of sorts — except that you will be able to access our shows whenever you want to, anywhere in the world. You will never be held to following a specific programme schedule.
Just one small detail: We are now also on Tumblr in part because I cannot afford to have a paid website hosting service (we are based in the United States, where the current economic picture is rather sad) and it’ll be necessary to save our money to focus on the content.
But as you will see from more recent (re-)posts, we like Tumblr a lot. And I prefer the blog format, which keeps things simple. Anything new will be straight at the top of the first page. We are still working out the tag system, so be advised that some tags may take you in different directions (so you may want to right-click on them to avoid leaving our site by accident…!).
Thank you for finding us, and do stay tuned as we continue to plant the Rosegarden.
