A Reflection, about my “DJ’ing” style.
While I currently mix and play tracks using my controllers, my real goal is to continue to work more toward “Controller-ism, the art of manipulating sounds and creating music live using computer controllers and software”. The reason I don’t spend more time now with vinyl or Cd’s is because they are not immediate steps necessary for the current progression of MY goals with today’s technology. Starting so late in life compared to most DJ’s, I love being able to play and share the music I love so much for people who share that same love while continuing to learn, grow and gain experience. Working to blend my love of technology and music towards my artistic goals. Don’t forget folks music is an art form. And there are many ways to express and share it.
To purist’s, i hear them say that if you didn’t use vinyl, or Cd’s you are not a DJ. I will always have the utmost respect for all those before, their work, and their efforts for with out them I would not have the almost insane passion for the music that they presented to inspire me. I will never be the “DJ” they are but the DJ or whatever term I AM….One thing I have found, even though there are more DJ’s than you can imagine, and everyone I have met, heard play or played with, brought some little piece of them that made them unique, whether it be an idea, a skill, a sound an energy, something that they share that’s unique to them. And I am grateful for anyone who wants to express their art and the music that they are passionate about.
The Rogue Wave Project has teamed up Sticky Rice for a week long fundraising event to benefit Shelterbox’s relief efforts in Japan. You can donate any amount while dining there now through March 28, and they will simply add it to your check. At the end of the week, Sticky will match 100% of the donations collected and it will all go directly to Shelterbox. Plus, all donors are eligible to enter in a raffle to win an in-home sushi dinner for four catered by your own Sticky Rice chef!
ShelterBox (www.shelterbox.org) is an International organization that responds to disasters around the world and supplies emergency kits to refugees that include durable, mountain tested shelter, water purification kits, educational materials for kids and kitchen supplies. They work with international rotary groups and are truly an amazing organization.
The Rogue Wave Project is a collective of DC Burners who focus our party planning efforts on events that raise awareness and funds for a variety of charitable organizations. At the moment, we are working primarily to support Shelterbox. We know how badly people want to help, and we want to facilitate that desire in a way that we believe is as effective and immediate as possible. So come on out, say hi, have some sushi, show some love!
