Studio 38, PCK, Yopoh & Vibe City Reflection
Friday, December 1, 2017
Years ago, I co-founded a Non-Profit project for the community and arts based out of MA called Vibe City. Around the same time I was pretty involved with Section 17 and managing (I hate this word, it really was way deeper and more meaningful than that) Planetary Circus Kingdom (Soundcloud, Youtube), then Yopoh (Bandcamp, Facebook). Over a span of 4 or 5 years, I worked with a team of amazing supporters, contributors, friends and artists, focusing on the the advancement of independent art, creativity, positivity, love, and the success and sustainability of community, and the role that we all play in these important fields; both current and past members and their creative and passionate endeavors. I still carry on that spirit with me.
We hosted numerous events and seminars with artists looking to expand their consciousness and follow their dreams. It's a wonderful DIY community. I wore many hats during these inspiring years. I collaborated with PCK and Yopoh directly as they were involved in every project. We built a studio (Studio 38) that's still a haven today for artists to create, record, and practice all forms of expression and creativity through sound and art. I built a live streaming service to broadcast our activity and maintained some form of web presence. Purchased more music/art equipment, lighting, event gear, decorations, building materials, and studio tools than I can count. I helped manage, coordinate, plan, and execute all of our events. We organized a series of art and music showcases around New England. We completed numerous paintings and recorded multiple albums during this time. I'm so grateful for that time of my life. I was able to evolve and learn together with a growing, caring collective of people.
