You're Here-Come In-We have Music

redShift Musicworks - Creative Music Ensemble expanding on the traditions and explorations of jazz, rock, fusion, blues, classical, experimental, hip-hop, reggae & more

Nada Brahma - the world is sound - originisnow. 

We work with structured sound designed to invite and explore reflective meditation, human reaction, intentional creation and is influenced and inspired by the current manifestation of our species. An invitation to engage in authentic listening and inspired evolution and to create positive social change to uplift the consciousness of humanity. Our overwhelming need to address things visually can be balanced with the wholeness of sound – we just need to listen without distraction. Sound is everything – Nada Brahma – everything is sound. We learn to listen to our minds, our bodies, and the universe. Sound – The Origin Is Now.

Music has the power to transform our emotions, attitudes, spiritual moods, relationships, perspectives, passions, knowledge. We should support this part of music and elevate it above the goals of entertainment. Social, philosophical, psychological and spiritual changes are the groundwork for our development and growth and cannot be measured in dollars. Changing our consciousness and awakening from past nightmares and traumas to embrace true love is the way to divert our collision course with our limits.   

Influenced by Weather Report; Kamasi Washington; King Crimson; David Murray; Medesky, Martin and Wood; Sonny Fortune; Pink Floyd; Art Ensemble of Chicago; Snarky Puppy;  Jimi Hendrix;  Bob Marley; Radiohead; World Saxophone Quartet; Carla Bley; Allman Brothers,

Love is the Medium @ The Boathouse Collective

Life as improvised structure ... in music and words. We riff and play off of each other, deepening the meaning of the conversation. Rhythms and tones grow rich with meaning, just like familiar words. One informs the other when we listen. We improvise upon the structure of language, of music and life with suspense, surprise and fulfillment.
