Today we released a new work in progress album on Bandcamp: The Inning Sessions 2022
It consists of tracks that were recorded and extracted from jam sessions at Niko von Fazits studio in Inning, lake Ammersee.
Those jam sessions took place in late 2022 and resulted in enough material for an album that we released today january 17th, 2023 with the first track and to which we will add more excerpts from the sessions in track form over the coming weeks.
The new bookings-tool allows our participants to either schedule a NINJAM-session and publish the date and time on this website, or to check when sessions are planned and join in when convenient.
Times are somehow a little difficult, and jam sessions are especially hard to organize with all kinds of restrictions and no place to go.
That is why we invite people to join us in our private 5lakes-NINJAM-server.
To join in you'll have to request a personal (handmade) account with us; at the moment the request for access is to be made via private message to @fairplay on the Sequencer.de-forum (https://www.sequencer.de/synthesizer/conversations/add?to=fairplay).
We'll answer there and eventually you receive the servers internet-address, a user-id and a password to log into the NINJAM-server with the ReaNINJAM-plugin within the REAPER-DAW. That enables you to participate in (or even organize) NINJAM-sessions.
Apart from the possibility to record a session on your computer all recordings of the previous day on the NINJAM-server are automatically uploaded around 3am to a password-protected webspace to which all our NINJAM-users have download-access.

Recordings from the first NINJAM-session 2021 which took place on monday, january 11th, can be found on Bandcamp following this link: https://five-lakes-music.bandcamp.com/album/session-07-ninjam
Hope you enjoy what you hear there - Bandcamp is also a great place to look for more/other music - have fun!
There was 5lakes-music before the year 2020 and they made some jam-sessions and recordings.
Most of the stuff is unfortunately gone, but some is not and what is found will be added over time to the before 2020-page on this site.
At the time of this writing there a three collections - interesting and worthwhile to listen to - from Bandcamp included; more will follow when found a polished a little.
