Music recorded during talks and sesshins
Where do songs come from? “Maybe nowhere! They are just here, waiting for us to get out of the way and let them in.” Jordan McConnell and Michael Wilding converse about music, play riffs in response to each others’ inspirations, and then share their histories: how they found meditation and music, and how one practice influences the other. Hosted by Jon Joseph Roshi on November 29, 2021.
