a new musical adventure
This afternoon I’ll be heading across town to audition for an interesting-sounding gig: accompanying a lap-steel player who makes music for yoga classes. I won’t be bringing the modular or any electronics with me, just a couple hand drums and some “ambient” percussion – gongs, cup chimes, water bowl, etc.
Even if the gig doesn’t work out, today’s jam has already been motivational. Since we moved into our current place last summer, my music-making has dropped off significantly, largely because of space issues and noise considerations. It’s high time I devoted more disciplined effort to improvisation, experimentation, and practice in my daily routine. I also need to post the “ensemble for imaginary exploration” Craigslist ad I’ve been refining. More on this later…
UPDATE: The audition/jam has been pushed back to next week. Bummer, but that’s how it goes!
