Earth Day I spent on stage in Valencia at Forest Camp with Chuck Vicuña and the Igoroots band. I think we caught an authentic slice of that on Youtube, playing "Hagpat." At first listen, the flute can almost not be heard, But it was fine in the monitors which means that the band members could hear it and I hear it in its absence.
From my perspective: it is influencing the others and being influenced by their energy.* In this way it affects the other musicians and the sounds we play. This was truly interplanetary jamming.
I understand why certain musicians would record a lot... Jimi, Jerry, Prince (RIP)... listening back gives you new ideas for future flows.
And where is the next section of Arisugawa Park? Less than a day away. A lot of realizations about the novel and story arc today, watching ships go by on the dock in Dumaguete.
