How did you hook up with Jacob and are the two of you open to house concerts in Seattle?
jacob and i are old friends. i'm a fan of his band spoonshine. and yes we would play if the situation were really cool.
First and foremost I wanted to thank you for how your music has improved my life. Your music uplifts me. You've inspired me to get back into making music, unapologetically create my own sound, and to push the envelope not only with music but all things I do, and never quit. Thank you.
I am very curious about your barnyard electronics and environmental/nature recording projects. I recently picked up Wendy Carlos' "Sonic Seasonings" and it warmed my heart. The blending of 'artificial' composition and 'natural' environmental sounds feels like a great celebration of non-dualism. I was wondering, what is your drive in creating environmental recordings? What sort of projects are you working on or anticipating in that realm? And what exactly are barnyard electronics?
Thanks again so much for being you, you rule.
Danny... I'm in the market for a banjo pickup. I'm after a darker, plunkier, thicker sound than most people go for, and I love the sounds you get off the stage.
I know you program much of what's coming out of the PA, but in terms of raw gear, I'm wondering what pickup you'd recommend?
I wish this wasn't as urgent as it is, but the sooner I could know the better!
