Playing music is always important for the Soul. Doesn't matter if everything is perfectly on time, or always on key. I feel that some of the most important expression comes from just raw sound output with not much consideration to formality or structure.
This is sort of the way my Pops and I jam together. Morphing from abstract to dub, prog rock... whatever, I'm not much about labeling sound. So! He has a modest drum kit and I bring over a selection of my set up. Includes a bunch of midi controllers, a synth, laptop, external sound card and a TON of cords. It's forever a moment of victory when all is connected, putting out sound and recording fairly clean. Here is a drum piece of a epic session we had going this evening. Just might have to go on tour soon! :)
What an awesome day! Such positive vibes to interact with all the cute puppies and their passionate companions. Weather couldn't have been better too! Think I've really fallen in Love with drawing puppy portraits. Allows me to present Art in a more accessible fashion and promote my work in a comfortable manner. Def like scaling down my set up and keeping it Live!!!
This was also a 1st public debut of Simpatural. Some of the all natural products that Kim and I make and use. Brought just some of our bug repellant this time, but things are quickly shaping in a very positive manner towards releasing more. Keeping things Simple & Natural is extremely important with connecting to what truly matters in this experience we all share. Really looking forward to attending many more events in tune with our harmonies.
Huge thanks to all who support and make such special gatherings happen. Especially Linda Collier, one the most dedicated people I know and who introduced me in the first place. It was an absolute honour to paint that sign of Blue. Hope to see everyone back next year!!!!
