Free Music! Stop America!
We are one week away from the 2014 USA West Coast Musical Detour.
What’s Free Music! Stop America!?
“FREE MUSIC! STOP AMERICA! are two organizing principles around which individuals and groups can practice and enact various forms of freedom without mediation by political systems, markets, and money. FREE MUSIC! is an international d.i.y. expression of those for whom the act of gathering, collaborating, and having fun is more important than the product being sold, or the points being made.
FREE MUSIC! invites all to jump in and create; people from all origins, working in all mediums, to ‘start where you are, use what you have, do what you want!’. by welcoming different experiences and different aesthetics, we make the sound that reconciles harmony and dissonance. by engaging people socially and creatively without the need for money or the music industry, we demonstrate a revolutionary form of life that doesn’t require capitalism or control from above.
talking/listening,teaching/learning, practicing/creating, resisting/partying are all done at the same time. if you are interested in freeing music and/or stopping america, you can start with friends and strangers in your community, or by yourself inside your own head!
MUSIC IS THE SOUND OF LIFE!”
We are blending music, spirituality and activism into new shapes and sounds that will support and heal us all. We’ll have musical toys, shakers, drums, etc., BRING YOUR INSTRUMENTS so all can join in making music together.
Everyone is invited to join in all Free Music! Stop America! travels and jams. Tell your friends.
