Talk Of Teronus airs its newest episode featuring Annalise Stalls

Take two quirky Meldavians a.k.a. Wezo & Drave, posing as would be musicians and otherwise professional humans, put them together in a room with their various guests and other musicians and watch what happens. "The Talk Of Teronus" does just that, providing lively chat with interesting and talented guests like jazz saxophonist and composer Annalise Stalls, featured in the newest episode, who is promoting her new CD "Music For Mounds". The talk may be fun and you may get a dose of culture from the "dramatic readings" portion of the show, but the real deal is when it gets down to the music. Wezo & Drave, along with Chuck Cotton on drums (or Chip Click who sits in for Chuck on this episode), and Roger Kohrs on bass, make up "The Talk Of Teronus Rimshot Band" to back up their guests as they collaborate on a live performance. This time it's..."Sunny Moon For Two" showing off Annalise's skills on the soprano saxophone.

The boys from Meldavia (Wezo & Drave) have talked and jammed with yet another notable Piedmont North Carolina area musician, Benjy Johnson. We were there to capture the chats and the music and are now pleased to share it with you.

Working should be this much fun for everyone! While the day of filming can get long and repetitious in some ways, the camaraderie, banter, informative chat and awesome live jams make it all worthwhile and very rewarding. It is an honor to be among so many truly talented and delightful creative folk.

Check out this month's episode with singer, song writer and Earthtones Recording Studio owner and technician, Benjy Johnson as he talks with the guys and they collaborate on one of Benjy's tunes "Devil In The Vinyl". Check out all the previous episodes here, if you missed any of them. Don't forget to subscribe to The Collabative's YouTube channel and see each new episode as they are released!

Talk Of Teronus Season Two Begins

Talk of Teronus with Neill Clegg

Talk of Teronus with Neill Clegg

The scene is already a bit chaotic as we enter the Mega Tone Amps Tone Lounge. It's a Sunday, a day when the lights are usually out and the array of custom made amplifiers, speaker cabinets and other electronic gadgetry all rest in silence and darkness. But, not today. Today there is a bustle of activity as music equipment, cameras, clothing, laptop computers, tripods, video and audio recording devices enter in the grasp of a growing number of people, each busy attending to their appointed roles and responsibilities preparing to shoot new episodes of the Talk Of Teronus. Sounds like a well oiled machine right? Well... you don't know the hosts, Wezo & Drave and the rest of this crew very well then. Libations are already circulating, jokes and one-liners are being slung faster than anyone can keep up with them and in the midst of the madness there is the now customary question "Now, what did we say we were going to do last time we talked?". The next sound you hear is the oil can being kicked out into the hallway. Here's a few behind the scenes photos...

Actually, it is the chaos and fly-by-the-seat-of-the-pants atmosphere that makes producing the Talk Of Teronus so much fun. Lord knows it's not fame or fortune. Still, it's hard to imagine having a better time, with any better bunch of talented, funny and just down right good people than when we get together to film the T.O.T. show segments. We are proud to be collaborating on this project and happy to see it begin season two. Here's show # 1 with guest Neil Clegg. Hope you enjoy!
