AYBEE and Afrikan Sciences - The Stone Jam Sesh | Summer 2016

It’s been at least 6 months since i revisited this session. It’s one of many we had summer of 2016 where my studio became almost a daily host of jam sessions. Years back it was more formal. We would actually make a point and set a time to jam. Now it’s more anytime we are tinkering in the in the studio we just hit record. Some HOLY sessions have been lost by not simply hitting record. It has become almost a sacred quest. No matter what is going on in the outside world, the ability to power up and dig into the inner-world has become essential. Improvisation teaches you so much because it makes you listen, it makes you trust your impulse. That’s pure freedom. For those of you who are tagging along on this journey with us know that word “Freedom” is the mandate for us.

We are explorers by birth… We are in pursuit. To lock up machines, and agree to get “lost” with someone is conversation higher than words. It’s the primordial high. I had no intention on sharing this, but i started thinking about how divided everything/one is becoming. The world is trying to convince everybody that it’s all about the “individual”. Everyone thinks they are a Corp or brand…. That pervasive disingenuous air is robbing us of authenticity. Genuine moments… that come from the unpredictable. Jamming is a practice in submission to that which is greater than the “i”, and that is the spirit that the world needs. It’s what i need. It is why i am so grateful to have these moments. To those that know us you know the score. Lock’em up and take off with no boundaries and no destination. So i suggest you blaze one, pour one, or whatever you do to relax. This one morphs a few times. Let your mind float…

For the geeks: I am on the Novation Circuit, Korg Kaossilator, Minilogue and KP3+ sending my signals into AFSCI’s Octatrak. He also has the Moog Mother we went straight into my Zoom from the mixer.

Les Graciés - Mitamine Lab ML123

Les Graciés is the conjunction of Eric Douglas Porter (Afrikan Sciences) and Gaël Segalen (IhearU).

"Searchers of spectrum and rhythm for distinction in sound, we want to create deep and wide audiovisuals full of grace. Sounds are unlocked and floating freely for a poetical action, a music connected to the world. Computer music is not a prison, technology made us free, and allowed us to meet overseas and invent our collusion, a conversation, almost a real time osmosis through the (www) time and space : we named it Les Graciés".
