Interview

And Liebert is fulsome in his support of musical cross-fertilization. “If you want to keep something the way you think is traditional, you’re really stopping all development,” he says. Noting that in the current political climate, it’s more important than ever to celebrate the mixing of cultural traditions, he says, “In many cases, we’re not even aware of how we’ve been enriched.”

Sunday

Hello new decade

It’s Sunday morning. The moon is full and bright and casts a soft blue light. I sit in my kitchen with a cup of coffee and the lights off, as the sun slowly rises behind a hill to the East.

Yesterday I went to see Fantastic Fungi, after several friends highly recommended it. The time lapse photography alone is worth the price of admission, but the information about mycelium networks is amazing, too. It’s my turn to highly recommend the documentary to you.

Tonight the sale of CDs and USB Flash cards will end, for now. The last orders will be sent off on Monday and on Tuesday we will be on our way to Florida for four shows.

Here we are then… 2020, one year after Blade Runner. Much will change this decade. It’ll be a challenge but also very exciting.

PS: on 17. April we will perform at the Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe. I will post more information as I get it.

Tomorrow

Yesterday I watched a French documentary film from 2015 called Tomorrow. This is the trailer. I thought it was brilliant, the food production in urban areas or tiny farms, the local currencies that are cropping up in many regions – especially the pound note with David Bowie’s face on it! I found the film to be very uplifting and energizing… the perfect last note for the year that’s ending tonight. The film’s website: Tomorrow-Documentary and solutions.
