You Call Your Musical Minimal...

To this crew of people I've never even met (I imagine you all as muppets), who've given me such rising accolades over here, I'm humbled.

Thanks to Holly for fighting the true fight this week. We got our own fortune and glory, now and later.

For my part, it's been good for me to aide in exposing people to the music (and hopefully not too much to myself!), because the plight of breaks has often been that it's either too dark or too bizarre in some ways to be main-floor material, which I've been yet again reminded recently, at a much different locale.

Breaks at large are not necessarily all of that piece, but I tend to skew my sets towards the ruff and ragged, and at other points towards the brainy or the head-scratchy. I can't change this. There are parts of the world, and the scene, that have figured this out as funky, but most either want pretty or hard, and nary the twain shall meet between the feet. Apparently.

BT once said he was in to music that took a few listens to absorb, grasp, and yes, finally love. I guess I'm like that too, though I can't write music like he does (or at all).

If everyone were as opened minded as this week's cast, crew and audience, we preachers, Holly, PB, myself and others, would be on top.


Addendum: Also, though it might've turned the sky crimson(er) this past week, whither Charlie in this deba(t)(cl)e? Gathering ye a new set, I hope?

You talk funny.

Yes, it's depressing as all hell to come out on the losing side of this argument for the nth time in n years, but at least I've got you with me.

We got t-shirts.

Holly said...

I think you mean jackets.

Jesse said...

Yup. You're right, of course.

I want more of this breaks music. It's good.

(that's all the words I can muster from this frazzled brain right now, but I mean them.)

Jesse said...

yeah. I'm fried. But not in the fun way. I'm checkin' ways to do a broadcast (nowlive.com or somesuch). I'm on the prowl (and have just graduated so I can devote some time to this!)

Whoooo! I think nowlive has issues with music rights or royalties or whatever, but I have my fingers crossed. Hard.

Jesse, when you're ready, buzz me about NowLive. Like I said, I'm a technological caveman, but I've got a pretty good handle on this particular site.
