Jesse lee made his debut performance with the storybox allstars this weekend at the beneroya hall in seattle. It was really amazing to see that project finally come out of the planning and into reality. Next step… I’ll be writing new music to some of Jesse’s new works of poetry for the next storybox allstar performance. I am thinking about writing some operatic vocal melodies possibly with out lyrics and also put in some vocal textures and sounds similar to deamonda galas. We have collaborated a few times in the past and I am looking forward to being a part of the next show. I also spent some time at folklife festival while in seattle. I tried to busk and when I sang I felt like people were staring at me like I was a. Deformed creature. I couldn’t really get into the gimmic side of street performance that day so I found a quiet corner near an exit and sang with my case and eyes shut. On my way back to portland I stopped in olympia to visit the mix master smoke attacker. We talked some shop and he gave me new music to listen to. I love it when he does that! I can’t wait to hear what’s on the mix!!
