Letter Meme

Comment and I'll give you a letter, then you have to list ten things you love that begin with that letter. Afterward, post this in your journal and give out some letters of your own.

darkphoenixrisn gave me H.

1. Harmolodics immediately came to mind. The musical philosophy of avant-garde jazz innovator, composer, improviser and multi-instrumental musician Ornette Coleman.

From an interview with James Blood Ulmer: "What does it mean to be a harmolodic player in terms of scales and chords? Don’t they all go out the window?"

"A harmolodic player is different, but there are rules to playing harmolodically. I learned the rules from Ornette Coleman, and the rules are separate from the Western concept of playing. Scales and chords are eliminated in terms of the Western concept of what you use them for, and you don’t use chords and scales in linear situations. All of your rhythm works off a concept that is superimposed on the linear concept. Everything goes in a circle. Nothing is linear. That’s the harmolodic concept musically."

2. Holga 120GCFN. My favorite camera. Someday I'll take some more great exposures with it.

3. Harsh noise. Abrasive and strange sounds can be amazing. They sure roped me in.

4. Hijokaidan. Japanoise group that started in the late seventies and is still going today, while also giving birth to other groups I love.

5. Healing. I do my best to help. But it seems like it'll never happen on the scale I'd like till I can heal my own life. That last part frustrates me to no end. Seems like I've only just begun.

6. Hope. Life wasn't anything I wanted to be part of without it.

7. Hearing. I aim to take better care of mine than I have in the past. Shame.

8. Holy practices. I need more. I feel good about going the routes I have been the last year or so. I can't say it's made my life easier or more challenging. I'm just trying to be helpful. I love it. Hopefully I'll start messing up less soon.

9. Harmonies.

10. Having fun. I find it very difficult to escape the urgency I feel towards working on goals. It's important though. I'll get to it again soon.
