Making The Music 

After the introductions were done and the talks were over and after the "checking out" of each other was finished, it was time to get down to the business of making a record. Much like any composer readying himself to write music to enhance a film (or a poet's work), I had to not only read the work that I was going to write to, but I had to "see" it. To compliment this lady's passion, spirit and soul, I had to dig into her . . . I had to see her perform this work before I can begin write anything, and that is what I did. It was inspiring as can be. I got the answer that confirmed what I suspected about this piece of hers after simply asking her, "what are you feeling in the sounds and rhythms under this poem, this poem that includes words like 'dippin into my mind is like going through my purse . . .' just what are you feeling?" Her reply was simply "I feel a driving FUNK." So Funk is what she got.This is just a snippet of B4U Dip, B Sure. The first single from the upcoming EP will be available soon.
