It’s an exciting day for this flute looper, a moment I’ve been working towards for many months now. I begin the first of three new recording projects which will have me digging into completely new territory and collaborating with people I greatly admire. We’re combining: two of my favourite instruments (a gorgeous Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments effected alto flute and omnichord), my favourite poem (“The Invitation” by Canadian author, Oriah Mountain Dreamer), one seriously inspiring yoga instructor (Jenn King of Moksha Yoga Halifax) and one of our favourite practices, Yin Yoga.
It all began last March when Jenn taught a profound yoga class to us at Moksha Yoga St. John’s, one that ripped my heart wide open. Her beautiful class had such a profound effect on me that I’ve been itching to collaborate with her ever since.
That moment has come and it totally feels in the flow. We hope to help lots of people with this. We are creating a Yin Yoga recording for home practice, one that will focus on opening the heart through the act of letting go.
Jenn teaches and records her class in Halifax tonight to 4 lucky yogis and with the awesome assistance of Halifax recording engineer, Evan Cox of One Sound (http://www.onesound.ca). Sending love to Jenn, the yogis and Evan for their recording session!
I begin recording the music on February 1st for the RPM Challenge Newfoundland & Labrador. We hope to share it with all of you on March 1st!
