I've been talking with my colleague Bronson Foster a lot lately about niche ideas in the music world. Podcasts, vlogging (like my friend and colleague Eryn Oft), blogging (á la yours truly), etc...
I thought my contribution would be this thing I'm calling Fresh Finds Friday (accompanied by a mighty slick hashtag). The idea behind Fresh Finds Friday is to record yourself playing something new (or new to you), something you enjoy, and/or something you want to share with the world. The point here isn't a polished performance--it isn't a recital. But just playing for fun and sharing that fun. Or whatever motives you---the debate on whether or not music is "for fun" isn't what I want to drum up here.
For my first #freshfindsfriday, I will share a video of my "performing" Jabberwocky Jam by John Falcone. I've liked this piece for a really long time. While I'll probably not recital it (at least not until I have a secure job somewhere and the freedom to do whatever I want), I do play through it. This was the first time I read the narration (sorry, Carroll fans!). Check it out below!
I hope you'll join me in #freshfindsfriday...or whatever day you want to upload stuff!
