I Got Rhythm, I Got Music
The Wednesday night before we left for Brazil, we went again to the Teatro Solis to watch a Brazilian rock artist Chico César.His show was very entertaining and he involved the audience a lot (I wish I could have participated more, but since he was speaking in Spanish and singing in Portuguese…I know, more and more excuses).It opened with him and his drummer accompanist playing/singing a number while he was playing a weird looking instrument and manipulating the sound with a synthesizer.As the rest of the show continued he played two different guitars, sang, and danced while the drummer had some solos.In an attempt to explain his music/style, I would have to say that he was a mix of Bobby McFerrin and John Mayer, light rock with guitar but using a lot of mouth percussion/sound effects and body movements.Overall it was very enjoyable and was a good introduction to our Brazil trip we took the next week.
Up to this point my life has seemed, at least on the outside, pretty flat, consisting only of physics and climbing. Through writing I want to explore other enjoyments in my life from cooking to biking, reading to photography, playing the guitar to watching good movies. That doesn't mean that you won't see posts on here inspired by physics or climbing, but hopefully even those will be more thoughtful.
