"You lucky, lucky lady. I'm currently looking at live performances of this dude (and laughing inside at how many commented in shock and/or awe), and wish I could go to at least one of his before I die. It must be a rush like getting into a…"
"lol...at the moment I'm playing with my alma mater's orchestra (college) and there's an English horn solo but we have no English horn! I'll have to transpose it and play it on bassoon. It kind of got my creative juices flowing.…"
"That's really interesting! I have this app on my (Android) phone called Perfect Piano. Besides a keyboard, it has a drum pad and drum machine on it. I can now compose without having to get out of bed! :P"

I'm a bassoon player with a degree in (classical) music performance, but I'd love to take it in a different direction (electric bassoon, jazz, ambient, funk, etc). I love all types of music, but ESPECIALLY ambient/experimental/electronic. I also have a thing for metal. Classical guitar. I can't pick just one! I just recently bought a bass and trying to teach myself how to play!
I try to go to SXSW every year..if not I try to go to Austin as much as I can just to go crazy!
I'm not gonna lie..I wish I had a TON of Afropunk friends but for some reason we're hard to find/gather up. Even be in a band together? LOL. Don't be scurred..you can hit that friend request button. Especially if you're in Houston!! I'm also on Twitter and Facebook!

Nothing like just creating out of thin air, for the sake of keeping your skills sharp and your creativity level nice and high. My whole approach to music nowadays is to try and create something of nothing. For example, I have in a computer folder some samples of fireworks from Independence Day, and I wanted to turn them into drums and beats. But, whatever comes out. :-)
Hey, what's up? The chances of getting a million friends on here doesn't seem the least bit likely, but the ones you do make are going to be the ones that matter anyway. As for your recording of music, I assume you are open to back and forth collaboration?
