Tidbit 3: Musical Experience Designed To Inspire
FluteDaddy leader Joseph Liberti:

“My mission is to excite and encourage people toward hope and possibility through creating and presenting music experiences that engage and inspire.

Joseph Liberti, FluteDaddy nonet

It is well known that music powerfully affects mind and body. Listening to “favorite” songs taps into our emotional memory and stimulates the release of pleasure-inducing dopamine. Even music that is new to us, if artfully constructed, can connect us to our intuition and powerfully inspire us. As Plato expressed:

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”

Plato

Tidbit 2: Call and Response – Musical ConversationsIn music, call-and-response is a compositional technique that works similarly to a conversation. A “phrase” of music serves as the “call,” and is “answered” by a different phrase of music. These phrases can be either vocal, instrumental, or both. You may not always recognize it but most of the music in Wet Paint has call and response. One song includes a fun vocal call and response with the audience.  Join the FluteDaddy nonet for an afternoon of music and story designed to inspire.

Wet Paint Facts

Wet Paint
Ten Facts About Wet Paint – Music, Story and Inspiration.

Fact 1: Multi-instrumentalists= Many Colors

The music of Wet Paint will be performed by the FluteDaddy Nonet. (Nonet, from the Italian nonetto, a group of nine.) Because most of our nine musicians play multiple instruments proficiently. we get a very large palette of sounds with which to paint a variety of interesting tones and textures

Woodwinds: Chris Wojtecki , Tom Fowler and Joseph Liberti play soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxes plus alto and C flutes. Just that group gives us at least 30 different “colors” to paint with.

Brass: Chris Walters and Rick Crafts play trumpet, flugelhorn and trombone and use various mutes to alter their sound.

Our guitarist, Mike Sunjka adds electric, jazz and acoustic guitar sounds

Our bassist Pat Abbott plays electric bass for rock and funk tunes and acoustic bass for jazz which he also bows for orchestral sounds.

Our keyboard/synthesizer player Trip Zeigler can produce the sounds of piano, vibraphone, organ, strings and many more.

And our drummer Dave Hardin plays drums, percussion and wind chimes.

That’s at least 1000 possible combinations of sounds.

We use those sounds to make beautiful and hip jazz in cinematic, rock, Latin and swing styles.

Join us for and engaging after noon of music and story designed to inspire. Sunday April 7, 2:30 PM at Cottonwood Center For The Arts.
