Hey Barnes, You get around a bit. Do you think there is such as thing as 'local' or regional music/musical styles? I'm pretty sure there used to be, even your current region got 'Grunge' semi-recently. But with the advent of mass produced sheet music, then records, radio, cassettes, cd, internet, cassettes (again!!!) the Global seems to have pushed aside the Local. Still, there are local or community musicians but is what any of them play ever a local genre or style of music? I didn't make any sense did I? Thanks!!
yes i think these things exist. in an over-arching kind of aggregated, mediated way, the phenomenon you speak of has it's relevance, in the berkelian sense, things only exist in their particulars, so those meta-narratives are as false as they are true. if a person digs around, it can be found. however, the results may greatly surprise thee.
I recently took up an interest in poker as a hobby away from music, so I could turn off my mind, musically speaking, as I feel like spending too much time thinking about making music is strangling my creativity and not letting me look at musical idea's in as many ways as I could. I was just wondering if you have any non-musical hobbies that help you do the same?Danny Barnes responded on 06/23/2013 Next question
A few questions to ponder in your free time. Do you remember what you were thinking as you were waiting back stage or walking out on stage for the first time at The Gorge? I got a chance to stand where a stage would be during the off season while they were transitioning to the stage they have now. Looking at the hill empty was pretty impressive. Also, what has been your favorite place to play and why?
I hope you enjoy your time in Evansville this Friday and all over Indiana for that matter. I hope you can make it back this way more often in the future. Most of your shows I caught were in Washington and Oregon, and was never disappointed. I'm really looking forward to seeing you in my hometown here in Evansville, IN.
Thanks for what you do!
