KDE's Got Talent
People in the KDE Community have talents beyond technology. At previous Akademies there have been impromptu concerts and jam sessions, and suggestions about giving people a more formal opportunity to perform.
So at Akademy 2012 Tallinn, the Saturday Social Event will include KDE's Got Talent (KGT). Entertainment where everyone wins; a live show with performers from the audience. MCs, a sound system and musical instruments will be provided. It's an Open Mike—poetry, spoken word, music, comedy—anything goes.
Based on the number of people who sign up, the MCs and organizers will decide the length of the time slots. KGT will be about an hour, depending on how many people sign up and how well the show is being received.
The following instruments will be provided:
- Acoustic guitar with pickup
- Electric guitar
- Electronic keyboard
- Electric bass guitar
- Bongo/conga drums
- Wood block and other similar
Please add your name to the list of performers, along with a short description of what you'll do. Ensembles are encouraged.
