Copal is writing new music…

Yes, that’s right. We’re taking advantage of the hot summer months to explore new sonic territory, expand our creative horizons, and delve in deep on the writing front. And spend some time out of NYC… we’re all traveling a bunch too. Isabel is escaping the heat to dive into midwest and west coast waters, Hannah’s spending some time in breathtaking Iceland for a fresh air break, Lorenzo is headed down south for some western flair, Rob is teaching at a rock camp, Tripp might be traipsing about with multi-percussion in various city fronts–to be very cryptic and unspecific… In between all that, we’re buckling down the hatch and writing like mad (recording too!) Hence, we’re taking a slower pace on the performance front. We’re looking forward to sharing our new creations with you in the near future! (Shall we say Sat. August 20th with Fishtank Ensemble at Drom?!)

Interesting…

And so the process begins again. Or rather it is a continuous process, the writing and curating and developing of new music. My phone is actually a great tool for capturing melodies that come to me out of the blue. Sometimes accompanied by gusts of wind and other extraneous noise, which I guess only adds to the ambiance and place-setting to trip my memory back to that time/place of the melody emergence. Excited to write some really energetic dance-compelling music. I tend towards the more melancholy and down-tempo, but I can set that aside, I think. Yes, yes, I can. We can. Looking forward to sharing new music with you…
