flight of two biths and a hammerhead

in december i boarded an airplane

and bumped into two marvelous friends, co-creator-musicator-collaborators of the Star Wars Cantina Band Reborn

yes, a Bith and a Hammerhead were on my very own southwest flight to chicago

in my delight, i hastily scribbled a score, a duet for two Bith musical minds

little did i expect these friends, plus other beloved fellow space creature collaborators , to bring my creation to life.  blind composition turned quirky performance.  thank you so much jD (hammerhead), Logan (clarinet), Deb (flute), and David (filmmaker)!

Star Wars Cantina Band Reborn: Our Humble Salute to Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes

My light-and-gourd-adorned C whistle and I joined forces with other galactic instruments in an Earthen tribute to Figrin D’an and the gang.  On Halloween night we roamed the Mission and burst into restaurants and bars playing Modal Nodes classics.  And as if Bith masks and light up instruments weren’t fun enough on their own, we were accompanied by the groupie presence of many Lucas-like creatures and other unexpected assorted characters such as Giant Cockroach and Kenny G.
