Based on our last meeting (November), we'll be talking about:

- How is everyone doing? What's new? Any events coming up we should know about? Any cool projects happening? Any needs?

- Collaborating on projects: Who wants to do what together? We will create small groups.

- We decided to do a regularly-released zine. Are we picking a theme or topic? When is our deadline for issue 1? Recommended events/artists to cover? How to Curate 101: Talking to your friends about featuring their event/project in The Wandering Eye zine

- We discussed having open mic/ political art constructive critique & feedback sessions. How regularly do we want to have these? Should this be the function of the small groups/topical groups? Should we overlap these sessions with the monthly zine/process meetings?

- We discussed putting together gallery showings/art shows/events/live music as venefit shows or as meet-and-greets. Do we want to move forward with this?

Please put forward any other discussion topics in the event, or message Jay T. Conrad directly 🙂

DRUMSPYDER (Desert Trax, SF)
Drumspyder, aka Scott Sterling, brings a deep love of rhythm, drums, and dance to his distinctive style of electronic fusion. An expert percussionist specializing in the tamborines and framedrums, he weaves together intricate hand percussion with contemporary sounds into high-energy grooves, equally inspirational to the dancefloor and the on-stage performer. Drawing inspiration primarily from the old music of Europe and the Mediterranean, his music is a unique alchemy of ancient traditions, tribal rhythms, and sensual pagan atmosphere.
Originating in San Francisco's crucible of bellydance, bass culture, and world music fusion, Drumspyder has come into his own as an original producer, building a substantial catalog of work on the Caravan, Dakini, and Desert Trax labels, and releasing two EPs of original music in 2015, and . He is a prolific remixer, lending his signature live percussion and melodic touch to the Desert Dwellers, Deya Dova, David Starfire, as well as various traditional ensembles. His music has been featured in numerous dance DVDs and theatrical productions.
2015 and 2016 saw Drumspyder lighting up festival stages throughout the US and Canada, including Imagine, Symbiosis, Konnexion, Cascadia, Atmosphere, Blessed Coast, 3 Days of Light, and many more. Recently he had the honor of playing at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in New York.
Help us give him a warm welcome back to Seattle, in celebration of his latest release, an original 9-track album titled "The Mother Rune."
