Music with the Hands

I’ve been spending many hours sorting through the 1,750 photographs I shot at the Islands Folk Festival in the Cowichan Valley. Something that has struck me is how much music requires the use of the hands. I know there are exceptions to this such as vocals but in general, whether you are playing a flute or pounding out the blues on the keyboard your hands are the connection to the sound.

An interesting theme has come up and I’ve started putting together an album that explores the use of the hands in the production of music. This should be up in a few days but as is becoming normal around here; here’s a teaser.
