Intentional Beauty

The title for this episode was taken from a statement made by the great Harold Budd, albeit a paraphrase. He spoke of his intent to deliberately create beautiful music in the face of the experimental music "dogma" of dissonance and atonality that chaffed him. That has always struck me as a cool statement. I'll leave it to others to determine if there is anything beautiful about this episode. 


About the music: There are 12 different guitar loops as I attempted to create some textures. It does get muddy at times but...this was an improv, off the cuff effort...soooo..


As always, I feature a charity for those who would be so inclined to direct any impulse to support this podcast towards a more noble cause. This month, the charity is Agape International Missions, an outreach mission. Here's a statement from their website:


"Agape International Missions (AIM) was founded on the ground in Cambodia in 1988 as a humanitarian aid and church planting organization in Cambodia. Since 2005, our ministries have focused on ending the evil of child sexual slavery."


I learned of this organization through watching a very well done....and horrific documentary called "The Pink Room" that showed the systemic problem of sex slavery in Cambodia where young children are sold into prostitution by their families and subjected to rape. A horrific situation. AIM is literally on the ground in Cambodia fighting the good fight to address the root causes of the issue. 


Please consider supporting them with donations or purchases of items. 
Thanks, 
Alan
