piece-o-day ‘preaching to the choir’ (djembe, voices, live electronics, loopery, etc ~5 min)

observations for week-
1) a little bit of unkindness can kill an oversensitive person’s vocal chords for a week or more leaving them totally speechless when they entirely need to talk- so please be kind.
2) last saturday afternoon discussing the passover haggadah with friends we came to the passage about the four sons (google it if you wanna know) and the ‘she-eino yodea i’shol’- the one who can’t speak. why can’t he speak? is it because he doesn’t know how or is it because he has been rendered speechless? that became the theme of my entire week- speechlessness.

it’s interesting that i have an unreleased solo cd (from ’08) called ‘the power of speech’. i think being a sound artist gives me that power- even when i can’t quite put what i want to say into words. (and of course, if i had words i’d put them here.)

tra la la well that was the week that was it’s over let it go (‘gHOST project is the letting go project’ – says stacey). onwards and…. somewheres anyways. i guess. after passover has passed over i can worry about it some more. just need to keep my spirits up (slivovitz for a week??).

‘rendered speechless’ … sometimes (even if you could talk)… what could/ would you possibly say?

piece-o-day ‘today is a battle’- this is a piece-o-day about doing piece-o-days. some days are rough- but then i just say to myself… ok… just do it. sometimes (like today) that works. (synth-tympani loop then go…)

have now been doing piece-o-days for over 3 years- on every day that it makes sense to do one. this is a daily affirmation- like (l’havdil) learning torah- a daily practice of assertion. every day is a battle- some days are more battle than others.

well pesach is coming so i am off to battle a vacuum cleaner and then the stovetop.

pokerface

this piece-o-day (‘pokerface’) is dedicated to my late uncle saul- who was a bit of a cardsharp. in the early ’80′s my parents and saul and his wife jo lived near each other- in south florida- north miami beach (to be precise)- and they would visit my parents and play gin rummy. i was living there at the time- between parts of my life- done with college, living with mom and dad for the time being. so sometimes my dad would be the fourth (wonder of wonders!) but most often it was me.

saul would keep up banter during the game and how he could get you to flinch told him what cards you had.

saul was actually a serious card player. when he wasn’t playing gin rummy with the family he was at the beach with his codger buddies playing poker. (loopy 3 3/4 min- maybe a riff borrowed here and there)
