I hope you're all enjoying this COVID shutdown as much as I am lol
the pandemic has given me a chance to refocus on some things and also take deeper dives into things I was interested in prior
the first is my research and development for Sing Like a Horn. I was actually able to present some of my research regarding memory and involuntary physical movement last week and it was a great experience to be given a platform to begin bouncing those ideas around. I am in the process of getting the material that is in the ebook onto the internet in video form and....your girl is slooooow
the second is creating things as a solo artist. while I am currently writing a suite for my quartet, I have also (thanks to grant funding) been given an opportunity to record a pandemic-induced solo record. tentatively crafting some release plans and I'd like to have it out in the open early-mid 2021.
the third is writing about music and my experiences simply in words, not in music. I have previously written about practice burnout and vaguely about some of the SLAH research, plus I have a few coming down the hatch regarding experiences as a non-dude in jazz. you can follow my writing here: https://medium.com/@laurenlee_63608
thanks for reading and hope y'all are safe and doing the things!
