Japan Tour Prep, New Projects, CCA

It's been an amazing month. So many things are growing at the same time. Every moment is an opportunity to refine, and relax into it, creating deeper.

Preparing for Japan tour October 8-22. All dates here.

I've been working on my next solo album, created from many of the recordings I made at SnowGhost studio in Montana recently. ...

... New videos are emerging from over 1500 "moving photographs" that I have taken over the last couple years. I've recently completed my first photo pigment prints. I'll be sharing these soon in a new online shop. My Tai Chi and meditation practice keeps flowing deeper and deeper. I'm now teaching my first Tai Chi student as well, an amazingly talented acupuncturist and healer who had heard about the old form I practice.
It's all connected.

+ This summer I was invited to teach a class in the Graduate Design program at The California College of the Arts (CCA). I developed a new course that encapsulates so much I have learned, titled "Sound + Image Resonance". This has been moving along really well, in our fifth week now. Incredible students, ludic work, and it's providing a body for many concepts and ideas that I have discovered over the years.

+ + New release by The Maidu out on Overlap October 4th. Keep an eye out for this beautiful album and photo print we created.

This album came together so fluidly. Every aspect of this release was dialed into the intention of the album- to create a space of opening and release. It has been a beautiful flowing process of collaboration. Sakamoto and I complete each other's thoughts here. After 10 years of putting out music, exploring and listening to my creative process, I feel like I have truly begun with this album. Everything I have learned so far, creatively, technically, and spiritually has come to this expression. We are so happy, grateful, and humbled to share this sound with you.
