Cleve Pozar: I Did the Number

I was going through some older email, looking at videos that have been sent over the years that I kept unread for “when I have the time,” and found this one that is a trailer for an as-yet-unrealized documentary of Cleve Pozar.

I was introduced to Cleve’s music by my friend Adam, who has a nice interview with Cleve on his website at http://www.50milesofelbowroom.com/articles/73-cleve-pozar.html. I’ve got a copy of his record “Solo Percussion”, which is great, and Cleve also has a number of clips up on youtube. I really like that he is steeped in the world of improvisation, but his compositions are incredibly intricate as well.

CyTunes – download music, downsize cancer

I’m readying a series of posts about CyTunes – a great example of social enterprise, community, fundraising and innovation.  I’ll let you know up front that I’m biased, as my wife is the project manager and I’m volunteering to help with the social media aspect of promotion.  Below is my first cut at building a widget, built at sproutbuilder in a couple of hours (and I’m sure it would have taken less time for someone who is more technically proficient):

CyTunes sprout

Update: I was going to have the sprout embedded here, but apparently I can’t do so on the free version of wordpress (or I’m just not very savvy).  Easy interface is provided for over a dozen services, including facebook and blogger, so if you want to see how the sprout looks “in action” you can go to my facebook page – it’s both under my “info” and in a separate “my stuff” tab.  I’ve also added it to my tumblr site, which I’ve found incredibly useful and fun for keeping track of little bits of info that I think are worth sharing.
