Hey folks – Virtual Vineyard Livestream is now a weekly event!! Don’t let social distancing get in the way of Sunday Funday. Grab your coffee or mimosa, and join me every Sunday at noon for a Virtual Vineyard livestream, right in time for brunch at noon. I’ll play an hour or so of requests and favorites – let me know what you’d like to hear! Tips are welcome.
Like you, I’m outraged by the lack of PPE and ventilators available to doctors, nurses, and hospitals. So I’ll be donating 25% of each show’s proceeds to the CDC Foundation Coronavirus page. Here’s the website: (https://www.cdcfoundation.org/coronavirus) I’ve acquired some livestreaming gear, so sound quality should be GREATLY improved from my first show. Leave your requests in the comments, and please share this event to all your friends. The more, the merrier, of course.
See you this Sunday!
Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.
This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
