The first installment of Beatty Jams lands this Friday at 5:00 PM in Beatty Park, right in the heart of Keewatin. Bring down your accoustic instrument, your voice & your lawn chair & be a part of the New Keewatin Tradition.
I know things here at Candle Experience Dot Com have been really quiet for the last couple of months. Sorry about that. But I have gotten side-tracked on a bit of a historical exploration. It all started when my buddy Jim (of Hellenica & The Golden Tombs) asked me if I had any recordings from our days when we played together in the Winnipeg experiemental-rock band Hellinacopter. Well I did.
Yesterday was spent performing & recording a new video project inspired by the greatly misunderstood German Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The Good Four takes its name from an aphorism presented in Nietzsche’s 1881 book entittled The Dawn. The video is over an hour & a half long & features songs from across Candle’s repitoire as well as a number of brand new improvisations. The performance was captured via webcam.
Post production work will commence on the video shortly. However, here is a sneek peak at the new video. This brand new song is called Alhambra At Dusk & is a live improvisation recorded during The Good Four sessions.
