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!
