Snow at SugarHill


Well, snow doesn't happen very often in Houston, Texas, and when it does, we generally freak out and celebrate while indulging in an inflated sense of driving danger. I mean, we'll bring in our plants and wrap our pipes at the tiniest dip towards 32 degrees.

Since I'm here, I'll mention that we had an amazing Live at SugarHill Episode 12 show last night. Winter Wallace and Tody Castillo. Check out our new site here. The show is gaining a lot of momentum.

Off to make a snowman in the barrio.

Two Star Rehearsal

I had a composition session with Two Star Symphony in my office last night. The pictures on the floor are prints of Wayne Gilbert's paintings. We're going to do a dual art/music performance and are composing music to compliment the imagery. Think "soundtrack to evocative static and powerful paintings", and you'll be right on the money.

I played SK-1 and a bit of acoustic guitar. Since I'm a big fan of the band, I'm having a ball. More about this as it occurs.

Jeff Walton and I are starting work on another song for Craig Squires. We're leaving Halloween and headed out to the solar system for the them of this song. Jeff has already made a lot of headway on this tune.
