21. Grist for the mill. A Tree.

Alright, so this is inspiring.  A man makes a video — a music video.  And that video gives you a glimpse into how he makes music by tuning and playing a tree!

What interests me, in particular, is his behind the scenes approach to his own sound-making.  In doing something youtube style, he’s created a different kind of art object.  It’s directly linked with his audience.  A veil lifter. And it gives you this feeling of possibility out of seeming impossibility.  You make mental connections that you might not otherwise make.  (ie – a bow plays  on violin strings.  i know this to be true.  But  a bow on a tree trunk. what? really?) I just really like that little story concept.  It goes a long way.

Now, how can I steal from Mr. Stocco?
