Growth Rings

This trio of friends use to meet every Sunday to play around the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) Sometimes they would meet in foyers, stairwells, by trees—anywhere there was space or resonance. This recording session was very healing and hopefully it brings out something unexpected in yourself.
