ANCIENT TO FUTURE: What is it… a tribute to the Art Ensemble?
This blog is, as it says, “Beyond Chaser…”, but when I reflect on it, it’s been initiated for the same reasons I started Straight No Chaser. I can’t help but engage with our shifting cultural, political and spiritual landscape. I like to chat, I love a good story and my interests run far and wide. So, as in the past, my I-dren have told me to shut up get scribbling. As such, Ancient To Future is a work in progress. I have to deal with what touches me right now… whether it’s music, films, dance, books… whatever. We also need to illuminate out own history and I definitely plan to dig into the Chaser archive and revive some stuff. And finally, I will also indulge my passion for esoteric Chinese martial arts and practices. Feedback is good… otherwise I’ll feel I’m just blindly adding to the mountains of digital garbage that’s out there on the net already.
