Orbits… for John Patrick Mckenzie

Last night I played an art opening for John Patrick Mckenzie at Creativity Explored (a non profit arts center for developmentally disabled adults).  I started to drift into extended territory with a couple songs.  It was a fun way to explore new modes and get inside the phrases a bit more.  I’ve always been drawn to loops, patterns, and repetitions…. little orbits that can expand and contract on themselves, much like what you find in Mckenzie’s work.  I was inspired to record one of those pieces today in dedication to Mckenzie’s endlessly repeating, often hilarious, and brilliant art.  It’s titled “Orbits”.   I hope you enjoy it!
