Austin chats with game designer Sean Vanaman and actor Rich Sommer about Firewatch’s development, the joys of voice acting, and a few esoteric board games.
It’s a ritual
‘Cause we’re never gonna stop
Names are on the list
Me and all my guests
Ink is on our wrists
‘Cause tonight it’s gonna pop
People filing in
City full of skin
It’s all about to begin
‘Cause we’re going for the top
‘Cause we’re glamorous
Oh so amorous
You’re so envious
Come and join with us
No more calluses
No more papercuts
No one’s gonna be the boss of us
We’re the glam boyz
And we’re living on the edge of tonight
Hitting the rooftop
The beat is gonna drop
The skyline is ours
Time to take it to the stars
Screaming at the night
We might not but we might
The feeling’s all around
They’re lost but we’re found
Dreams of flying
We’re crying diamonds
We’re so high and
We’re never dying

He rose up through the brass and percussion ranks of La Fanfare de Maniwaki, Quebec, a small logging town many miles out along the Gatineau River north of Ottawa. It was a tough town with strong Algonquin and and French Catholic roots, and hockey. Who could have predicted a once on-ice enforcer would emerge from here to someday become a masterful jazz musician? Well, perhaps his Father, and the local marching band leader.
Bruno Hubert left Maniwaki, at the age of 19, to find a larger pond to quench his musical thirst. His business minded older brother gave shelter in the citadel of French Canada, Quebec City. There the fresh faced drummer took up studies, to round off his rough edges, at Cégep de Sainte-Foy school of Music. He was told to learn piano. And he discovered his brother’s Keith Jarrett record. The rest is, well, recounted firsthand in this audio interview conducted by the Jazz Shed in February of this year with Bruno himself .
Over the past three decades, Bruno has taken a curious and unique route from obscure small town french Canada to the lyrical multiculturalism of Vancouver’s Jazz scene. While his story is interesting, his music is more so. Bruno is well known and, perhaps, revered among many jazz musicians and fans alike in Vancouver as a remarkable secret. Well, this is partly true. But any jazz musician, especially those who work in Vancouver, will tell you that they are not in it for the fame. Seems like a silly thought if you have ever tried. Bruno however seems oblivious to the concept of self-promotion and as local impresario Cory Weeds would tell you, the market for Jazz promoters in Vancouver is rather small. So, Bruno is not famous. But, maybe he likes it that way.
Perhaps some of the adoring regulars who seep in to Commercial Drive’s mirthful Libra Room most Fridays to hear (and see) his bustling trio are thankful that Master Bruno Hubert (he goes by the original surname of Schubert more recently) prefers his piano to the spot light. They get the best deal in town. Oops!
Please pour yourself a tall glass, a wee dram, or a pot of tea, and stretch out to this candid and rather extensive interview with a truly masterful jazz musician who is, quite possibly, the real thing. This interview is lightly seasoned with some of Bruno’s playing from a Jazz Shed recording made Live at The Libra Room in November of 2015. Enjoy, and please comment.
NOTE: Be sure to buy your tickets to see The Bruno Hubert Trio perform at the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival on July 2nd.
Connecting the dots from there was relatively simple: extract the ID and author from the (generally) predictable email subject line with a regular expression. Pop those into the TaskPaper formatted project template. OmniFocus date math in the template gets parsed when the Workflow runs — these projects are to be completed within a week, so I just set a @due(1w) parameter. (More complex date math could be done with Workflow actions and an additional variable.) The whole assembled project gets copied to the clipboard and run with the new omnifocus:///paste trigger. Total it’s four taps from incoming message to filled-out project: action menu in Airmail, Share, Run Workflow in the share sheet, and finally select the workflow itself.It took about 30 minutes to put together this workflow (including pecking out regular expressions on the iPhone keyboard) and I’ll likely run it 30 times before the end of the year, with about a one-minute savings each time. In the process I also learned the new OmniFocus text format and URL scheme, which is almost endlessly flexible. (One caveat is that new projects can’t be auto-filed in folders yet, but Omni says that’s coming soon.) I should also note that this workflow would be harder to set up on the Mac; it would probably require a mix of two or more scripting languages and a service to get it all working. This is my serious work — my livelihood — and thanks to these three apps, I’ll be turning to iOS to do it faster than ever before.
