DO YOU HAVE IDEAS FOR CONVERSATIONS, TALKS, PROGRAMS, PROJECTS, WORKSHOPS?
A DESIRE TO CREATE A PUBLIC AROUND AN IDEA THAT ENGAGES OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AND OUR NEIGHBORS?
HOW MIGHT BEYOND MUSIC IS THE WEAPON AND REPAIR HELP YOU REALIZE THAT DESIRE? STOP IN AND TALK WITH US.
For sometime I have been contemplating the need for a space both literal and metaphorical that could support the underground music community in Minneapolis. What tools and resources could musicians in a space such as this use cooperatively? What sounds and bonds might form in a space where musicians from diverse backgrounds come together around new sounds and new conversations?
I’ve come to these thoughts from a life long interest in music and and sound itself, but also as a response to what is happening in our community and communities around the world. Could music be the weapon to fight economic and social injustice?
Over the course of the next six months I will be working with Beyond Repair to begin building on these questions: Building equipment, organizing events, and creating dialogue.
If you are interested in participating in this project and these thoughts please contact me or stop by the shop on Saturdays.
