2016 was the start of Black Dingo Records and it's a big part of the reason this year has been so memorable and important to me. There are talented and passionate explorers of the sacred sound-current all around the globe and it's been inspiring to work with and learn from them. I'm honored and humbled by the interest of artists and listeners and excited for 2017.
Keep an eye out for new records from Adam Biel, Castleview and Louigi Verona. If you have something to say to yourself and the world with your soundscapes, BDR wants to hear from you.
Special thanks to Art Brian and Sound Brian for their amazing and generous contributions.
Being and Time is a Holiday gift to the listeners of BDR and is dedicated to T.W. - thank you for your help!
"The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play. his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving other to decide whether he is working or playing. To him, he's always doing both."
- James Michener
"It is through love and within love that we must look for the deepening of our deepest self, in the life-giving coming together of humankind. Love is the free and imaginative outpouring of the spirit over all unexplored paths. It links those who love in bonds that unite but do not confound, causing them to discover in their mutual contact an exaltation capable, incomparably more than any arrogance of solitude, of arousing in the heart of their being all that they possess of uniqueness and creative power."
"Love one another, recognizing in the heart of each of you the same God who is being born."
-Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
