Jamming with Butterflies (in a pool of water)

I kind of look at death metal like movies. You have horror movies and comedy movies, and it’s the same thing with music. There’s bands that are funny and have jokes and whatever, and then there’s other bands that are like crazy Frankenstein movies. That’s something that I’ve been into since I was a kid. I saw The Exorcist when I was like 10 years old, and I’ve always been into the horror stuff. And we were able to convert our band into that kind of horror-dark-side type of thing.  ~Frank Watkins


This post has little to do with practice, but certainly has something to do with music. I just heard about Hermeto Pascoal, a guy Miles Davis said was “the most impressive musician in the world.” I’m amazed by how many flavors of musician are in the world and am equally stunned when I find yet another important one I’ve never heard of and wish I’d discovered much earlier. Hermeto Pascoal is from Brasil, and this is how he does it: (PS: the riot of yellow butterflies that come to dance around are worth waiting for @ 2:30. Big thanks to Meara O’Reilly on BoingBoing for this one):

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did. Zany!

Have fun and good luck with your practice.
