I was walking along the Riverwalk in downtown Detroit by Chene Park, when I came across this young lady who appeared to be creating a beat using a computer and two external speakers. I asked her was she making a beat and she responded by saying she was just fooling around with an existing song she was interested in. I told her she was making a beat. When I came back around, we exchanged business info. I was amazed how young she looked. I thought she was a little girl. Her name is Sydney B. and she has an online blog called the Social B. I encourage you to check it out. They cover a variety of topics and she is committed to putting Detroit out there in a positive way. she loves her city. the website is www.sociableb.com. You can leave comments and advertise your website. Be sure to give The Social B a hollar. Peace and Love in Music, Gerry C./SK
Cousins Enterprizes,LLC will soon begin affiliation with Alternate Mode, home to the Mallet Kat and drumKat mallet and drum synthesizers, respectively. As a percusionist this will allow me to enter into the EDM and dj games without learning how to play the turntables or cdjs, although I still plan on learning those instruments. These instruments are great for djs, electronic musicians, percussionists of course, and music producers. These instruments can only be purchased through the Alternate Mode online store. Click on the link located on the besmusicgroup.com website's home page. Happy creating. musically yours, Gerry C.
Hello creative people. I am writing this new blog to encourage those who may wish to express themselves creatively with our new products on www.besmusicgroup.com. I suggest exploring the Beamz By Flo and any of the Aluphone bells. Those are great for spoken word artists/poets and or anyone wishing to express themselves musically. And of course of of the African drums and cajones are great also, although I would recommend some type of formal study.
When I play music on a turntable or playing a musical instrument, it feels like meditation to me. This is especially true when I drum. One experience I had a year ago was when myself and some friends were playing our drums on The Detroit Riverwalk. One of my friends notice toddler dancing. At first I didn't notice him, but his older brother. When brought my attention to the toddler in his stroller shaking is hip, waving his hand and smiling, it reminded me of my now decease mother, who did the exact same thing when she was confined to a wheelchair. We called it her "wheelchair" dance. This convinced me that her spirit was dancing once again through this baby boy. Thus the power of music and rhythm. This experience solidified the primary purpose of my life. Influencing and inspiring people through music. Even if it is a baby boy in a stroller. Make beautiful music and write beautiful poetry. Peace out. Musically yours, Gerry C
