It was pretty incredible being in the same room with the legendary Jimmy Cliff. First, an interview followed by an intimate, acoustic session at Sonos Studio. He talked about his days of rebellion, hanging out with Joe Strummer, playing with Jimi Hendrix, and making music before it was dubbed reggae. When asked how he was able to hold on to his moving voice over the years, Jimmy answered, “just staying positive”.
Our friend and writer Julie Wolfson invited us out to this event. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to see this first show at Sonos Studio. The space will hold events, lectures, listening parties, sound installations, and music performances. First Jimmy Cliff, up next is music by Bleached and a dj set with Questlove. I have a feeling there is going to be some great stuff happening at Sonos.
Also coming up is an opening for Luke Fischbeck’s interactive, sound installation. Below are images of the installation. Each of the ropes trigger sound when you touch or move through them.
