Blurt Magazine Listens

A couple a weeks ago was ” making my rounds” in the music community stopping by local music stores and small businesses that cater to local musicians. Dropping off some Daughter Element cassettes of “Primavera” of course schoolkids records in Raleigh was at the top of the priority list.
Schoolkids have been there since day one. They have been there to support all of Black Fusion’s music, Midnight Kids Academy mini tour and now Daughter Element. So much gratitude for Schoolkids. Thank you!
So I took a hand full of cassettes to them and ended up having an hour long conversation with Fred editor at Blurt Magazine.
We talked about some bands we liked and asked him to review the tape not knowing he would do it.
He didn’t give me a solid answer.
So i really didn’t have any expectations.
Checked my Facebook page and he had not only reviewed Daughter Element’s latest release “soundtracks”
but was really blown away at how well he described the music.
Such wonderful things he said about our music. Fred has really fueled my ambition and has inspired us to keep going!
Swung back by Schoolkids today to thank him in person and this time we talked for two hours. Music always brings people together

Cassette Tapes (Sneed The Jade Inspired)

I’m a huge fan and fellow Midnight Kid collaborative of Sneed the Jade Badger of Jade Palace Guard.
Before Cassette Tapes were thought of “coming back ” Sneed was the first seen who had his music on tape , (since the 90s ) . Sneed the Jade Badger does his own art on his tapes and duplication.
Sneed inspired The Daughter Element to do the same.
So we called up nactape and they helped us achieve what Sneed did all by himself . Thank you Sneed and thank you nactape.
So now if anyone wants the Daughter Element cassette “Primavera” go to our bandcamp .
If you are local swing by one of these music stores and ask for a copy.

The idea behind this project was to have free improvisation musicians who have never played together document what happens when they come together for the first time. Andrew Munger , Christina Thompson, Menestres and Daniel Schram to video and Formation Sound is what happened. Formation SoundStay tuned for more to come.
