On September 12, 2014, I was the featured performer at the Yellow Door Coffeehouse. Here is the first of a series of videos from that show. In it, I led a process of collective musical creation through improvisation, a technique that I learned some years ago and have developed in workshops since. This was the first time I attempted it at one of my performances. I think this idea can be developed further, but it was a good first attempt, I think. Since my songs not very well-known, and are sometimes not the easiest to follow, as they often meander off in interesting but unexpected directions, my challenge is to find ways to make the audience part of the show.
Thanks, by the way, to Yellow Door Coffeehouse Host Marc Nerenberg for very kindly editing and providing me with video footage from this show. More videos to come in the coming days!
