it’s good to get back to drumming again. march 6 will see me in prince albert, saskatchewan, with dene singer/songwriter leela gilday….i hope we’re not playing outside. playing music with leela is great—not only is she a great singer and super person, the rest of her band is about the best bunch of people anywhere. and laying down grooves with my strange hand percussion/drum kit elements hybrid percussion setup is always fun. after all the blips, beeps, clicks and cuts of the new media work i have been doing its good to connect with the groove.
i also just talked to marc nadjiwan, who is working on a new CD. i played on his last one, also doing the hybrid kit thing, and this one is really a step forward in his sound.
you can’t step away from the groove…..
next week sees me being video guy. the SAVAC MONITOR 4 festival is feb 20, and the bird project is feb 23rd. i am looking forward to not having to carry 50 drums around. but then again there is the small matter of the projector. oh well.
(incidentally, its not just video week. my piece is being played on feb 22 @ madrid abierto. see the previous post).
the webpage for my project at madrid abierto is up. it looks so much cooler in spanish!
i also just received notice from the nice folks there that my piece will be closing the festival, on feb 22 @ 1900h, madrid time on 93.2 FM. also of course on the interweb at

i can’t wait to see what else they have been up to. so beautiful.
