Hi Danny, Thanks for answering my question about where I can hear you play bass guitar, and for telling me about your experience studying tuba. I find that very interesting. I've got another question: when will you perform in Washington, DC or nearby? I'll bring everyone I know!
well, best just get on my mailing liszt. i send out an email blast right before a tour usually, unless i'm on another tour or some jazz. you can thus make an auto remind dealy et al. i've done been there twice this year, where were you? haha. thanks for listening.
Hey man, I've been struggling with my drinking habit. I'm tryna do right but it seems my best songs have been written when I'm loaded or hettin there. It seems to me a lot of your recent songs have been about 'getting yourself together' and I was wondering if you had any advice for a youngin tryna see the world strait.Danny Barnes responded on 10/24/2016 Next question
Music causes its effect first on the ear, then on the parts of the brain that derive meaning from notes and tone and rhythm. At some point it derives meaning from the social context of the music in a broad cultural or historical way in the mind of the listener. is the context of the music an essential element in the communication of ideas to the listener/audience? Is the awareness of the player as belonging or not belonging to a context necessary as an intent to present the music as coming from a specific viewpoint? To what degree is individual identity separable or inseparable from broader cultural or class identity for the artist? Is all music political some kind of way?Danny Barnes responded on 10/25/2016
