This is something I’ve just started playing with, along with my more localized Westsound Magazine project. It came from listening to some Coast Salish drumming on YouTube which lead me to this really interesting Coast Salish Suite produced by Bravo Fact. In the video you hear a mix of First Nations music with a full orchestra, resolving with the work of the conductor.
From being a fan of music and watching those giant crowds of people to my own experiences playing before crowds, I can tell you that there is definitely something going on under the surface of our songs.
From the simple power of an drum song to gatherings of music across the world something connects straight into us. Its like synchronicity. Or that could be me just being a Police fan.
Anyways, I already had a SoundCloud channel, so I started putting together a playlist of music from around the world.
It isn’t finished (in fact I don’t think it logically could ever truly be) but it’s got eleven already, mixing some traditional music with some more contemporary.
