JULY - 2014
Greetings from Arizona with monsoon season now in full force. The weather and topography has been such a tremendous source of inspiration that enough new material has been written for a new studio recording intended to be completed over Columbus Day this October. James Manno (firstname.lastname@example.org) will once again be handling the engineering. The concept of the recording will be along the lines of some of my earlier forays utilizing acoustic and electronic elements. The working title is 'Tales From The Desert'
I will be back on the east coast for four weeks of shows starting on October 2nd. Some of the highlights include a PING reunion as well as a Serious Fun/White Light collaboration. Please check out the GIGS section for further details.
Ciao for now...
The Past Is Not Forgotten
My son Colin Biedermann passed away on August 27, 2005. He was 19 years young. CB was the rhythmic force behind our duo work as well as that of White Light's. Besides the responsibility of maintaining the pulse, he pushed the music forward with musical sensibilities attributed to a musician of many more years' experience. His ability to improvise in a group context was of the highest order and allowed the other players extraordinary freedom to interpret the music and play with abandon. His abilities as a musician were only surpassed by his human qualities...the understatement of a lifetime. Colin will be sorely missed...however...never forgotten.
