Event horizons

As always the case,
these last weeks after returning from Japan have been revelatory.
And they have brought some unexpected blips , bumps and curves.
New friends and old in Japan, lost a gig in France , thoughts about some amazing gig offers for late in year.
From the old worlds of No Wave (Book) and Soul Jazz photo book things did evolve.
Thoughts of and from around the world ...

Excellent grooving improvisations recently, sounds morphing between decks and synths.
Dystopians ( SA/ Bones/ Norman Westberg ) continues to jam on THX 1138 , the live soundtrack performances will be April 5 @ Monkeytown.
Began a round of new tracks myself just before xmas and flying out 12/30.
That continued in Japan in the park at the edge of the Imperial Residence one afternoon
and again in Kyoto hotel room one morning watching a light snow fall in front of black storm clouds.
New soundscapes and future 'club' musik.
