about

This gig was at Jessica and Darin's place in Petaluma. It was Superbowl Sunday, so a pretty small turnout...really? Football? Over MUSIC? I know, I live in a bubble.

It was an interesting night, musically. More acoustic and stripped down, with Daniel playing his ukelele, electric sitar and kora rather than the space-age gravikord. Very down to earth, relative to the more spacey electronic feeling of previous nights. Also getting down to earth, I had a little mortality wake-up call on the highway on the way there, with my car stopping dead in the middle of I-880 (the route my friend David likes to call the 'death trap'). I was really shaken up when I arrived at the gig, and every hug I got was accompanied by a giant wave of gratitude at actually still being here.

Appropriately, the lyrics to this piece came from my song "Angel" (on Gravity).

lyrics

just inside the skin of this bubble i'm in
all sensation
smooth and warm and slippery to the touch
and the taste in my mouth as i
breathe in and out
clouds of flowers and stars
every kiss whispers its message
every touch poses its riddle
like a sphinx at the gate of the garden
saying who do you think you are
who do you think you are
in between these hazy dreams
i catch a glimpse
of reunion
there's nothing can stop us
we're already flying
in formation
holding pattern
hovering over our desire
in between these hazy dreams
i catch a glimpse
of reunion
just a little revolution
a hundred million year
carousel around the sun
a hundred million sons and daughters
rising and falling
dreaming their way on

about

Artemis San Francisco

Spectral keyboard washes and sinuous dance beats set up a feeling of warm alienation while Artemis’s voice heats things further. Over the thump and shimmer, she croons with detached fervor, the music dissolving in a storm of pixie-dust disco until a rude riot of effects snaps the tether and she vanishes. ... more
