E61 Exploring the Mechanical Mind of Mark Beckelman

In addition to being a long-time friend of Carlos and Oliver, Mark Beckelman is a retired Marine, dedicated family man, skilled marksman, and airplane mechanic who also works with cooling refrigeration and electricity generation. He also makes guitars, and basically loves to tinker with anything mechanical he gets his hands on. In this fun and fascinating episode, we get into things like the skill and craftsmanship that goes into everyday objects around your house and where that power comes from when you turn on a light switch. We also talk about the zen of marksmanship, fossil fuels, electric cars and the future of energy production. This one is also an opportunity to listen in on what is really just a great conversation between friends who’ve known each other for a long time and are happy to be spending time together.

Enjoy!

Episode #40: redShift Musicworks – Jazz and Beyond

redShift is a local Jazz band from Orange County, CA that you may remember from our live episode: The Tao of Jazz. We invited them back to take a peak inside of their creative process, and learn more about how they make music with two of the band’s geniuses: Dannie Hofmann and Stu Goodis. Learn what drives their sound, and how improvisation improves us. Other topics include the conflict between complexity and simplicity, difference in music of different cultures, overtones and back beat, and how to fool restaurant owners. This one’s pretty cool, man, you’ll surely dig it!

Episode #39: The Stream of Time [Music Nerd Edition]

Listen in as our resident musicians, Oliver and Lanzo once again discuss all things music in the harmonious way only these music nerds can do. They get into some really good stuff in this one, including rhythm and its vital importance to music, rhythm in different types of music, “stretching” rhythm (rubato) and “breaking the rules.” Lanzo shares his Stream of Time idea and the difference between piano and harpsichord, and the pair discuss Bach (of course) and debate who is the father of western music (which will likely surprise you).

Episode #31 – Exploring the World of Music w/Incendio Band

Join us for a wonderful, exploratory, musical conversation with JP Durand and Liza Carbé of Incendio Band. 

From their website:

Formed in the summer of 1999 by Jim Stubblefield, Jean-Pierre Durand and Liza CarbéIncendio (which means “fire” in Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish) became a vehicle for the influences and compositional talents of the three musicians. Echoes of music ranging from classical, to jazz, to rock, to flamenco, to Celtic, to even bluegrass can be heard in Incendio’s music. It is no surprise that this eclectic blend of influences has led to a sound that is a truly unique one.
