Setting Restraints to Spark Creativity (Ep: 214)
22 min
Setting restraints forces us to play things we never would have thought of on our own. By limiting our choices, we actually drastically increase the amount of creativity in our lines. Restraints help us to bypass muscle memory and create new pathways through the harmonies.  Check out these 3 strategies to implement restraints into your practice routine and jumpstart your creativity!

Episode 28: Rodney Ewing w/ Guest Host Cindy Shih (United States) - "Stories That Don't Get Told"
"While debating demanding topics such as race, religion, or war, it is simple enough to become polarized, and see situations in either black or white, right or wrong. These tactics may satisfy individuals whose position depends on employing policies or implementing strategies that promote specific agendas for a specific constituency. As an artist, it is more important to create a platform that moves us past alliances, and begins a dialogue that informs, questions, and in some cases even satires our divisive issues. Without this type of introspection, we are in danger of having apathy rule our senses. We can easily succumb to a national mob mentality, and ignore individual accounts and memories. With my work I am creating an intersection where body and place, memory and fact, are merged to reexamine human interactions and cultural conditions to create a narrative that requires us to be present and profound." Subjects Discussed In This Episode: - Real-time narratives and artmaking with immediacy - Art reflecting the times we live in - His recent mural “Correspondence” in SF - Working with 100 Days Action - Issues of identity - Compulsion to create art - Art being not what you do but what you are - The intersection of art and personal identity - Working with Collective Genus Rodney Ewing Rodney Ewing Instagram Cindy Shih Cindy Shih Instagram 100 Days Action Collective Genus Find us on all your favorite platforms including: Apple Spotify YouTube Facebook IG: @lofipod Website Noh/Wave Academy John Wentz

Mark McC
CORDUROY FABRIC FOUR SPECIAL with RICHARD SEARLE & SIMON NELSON-SMITH
Ep Corduroy INTRO Alright - welcome to My 90s music podcast with me Mark McC - the podcast where I talk to the people who lived, loved and were in the eye of the storm of the best decade ever - the glorious 90s. Today I’m totally jazzed as I had the real pleasure of talking to two of my musical heroes that are half of The Fabric Four - Corduroy. If you don’t know much about Corduroy or the Acid Jazz label and scene then I would check them out as they were a real influence on many of the bands in the 90s including the generators of Britpop - Blur who they also supported with Pulp and Supergrass at Ally Pally. I had a great, fun interview with Richard who plays bass and Simon who is the guitarist in the band. We chat about how the band formed, recording the albums, touring, riding a helicopter and driving an Aston Martin in Japan for a TV as, how the band came to a natural end in the 90s and how they are coming back with a bang very soon with a new album, tour dates and brand new merchandise at www.corduroyshop.bigcartel.com We kick off talking about what COVID has done to the live music scene and our collective pockets before heading back to the 90s. OUTRO Thanks to Simon and Richard for taking the time to talk to me and I wish you well for the new album, finishing those tunes started during lockdown and of course seeing you in a venue near me really soon. Corduroy will have a new album out soon on Acid Jazz so keep your eyes peeled on @CorduroyFabric4 on Twitter and @corduroyband on Instagram. Don’t forget to get your Corduroy facemasks, Tshirts and merch www.corduroyshop.bigcartel.com Thanks so much for listening to this episode. I hope that it filled you with as much joy, nostalgia and happiness that it did for me.
