Laurianne Fiorentino and the legendary intergalactic Santa Fe cellist currently known as Wedon Depensai will be performing a "multi-media event" for Imbolc on February 3 7:00 p.m. at the Center for Spiritual Living. Laurianne talks a bit about the event and about her music. But most of the Podcast is improvised music played live right here at Casita de Broomdust by Laurianne and Wedon. And get this. We did an entire Podcast before this one. After a couple of hours of outrageously beautiful and intense music, we started listening back, and suddenly the Podcast disappeared. So we did it again! What happened before this Podcast can be heard between the lines . . . listen for it! Sadly, it will always be the one that got away.
Ben Wright was in the Casita this morning. We played a few tunes from new CD's by Mi and D Numbers and had a great little conversation about electronic music, Ben's creative process, the life of a full time musician, family, music and collective consciousness, the Grateful Dead, much, much more.
Rick Bastine, Hyda Maria, David Michael, and Robert McCormick of See the Day Sound Healing came by Casita de Broomdust and offered some healing vibrations for all our listeners.
