Listening, hearing

AEDM Day 11

Bands were lined up at The Record Bar this evening.

First up, Rue Royale. Two people with a full orchestra of music. I was so enthralled, I forgot that I had brought a journal in my pocket to record the evening. Beautiful synchronization.

Second band, Oriole Post, also beautiful. Blue grass roots. The some notes in my journal; “The man made love to his bass. They were one.”

I went with full intent of contour drawing the bands, but what came out of my pen were impressions, words, not images.

It is still art. In the awesome book, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, the afterword is devoted to the the art of handwriting. My art this evening was such. ‘Twas harmony to sit with my friends listening to beauty.
