PUSH - Todd Reynolds

Todd Reynolds

Todd and Luke Dubois started off his presentation with an interpretation of GreenSleves called Sleves of Green, or something like that. It was Fantastic! Check out Todd’s web site for a sample of his music and to see his calendar.

Play. Loosing yourself in what you’re doing.

Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience -- by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Todd didn’t have a lot of “success” playing as a kid until he got the right toys. This included his violin and a computer. Then things took off.

People go to live performances to experience things they can’t get at home via CD, DVD etc. Todd’s conjecture is that people attend live performance to experience passion and watching someone do something they can’t do.

Luke showed us some of his consolidated works, movies in 1 minute, songs in 30 seconds, images overlaid and blended. Very cool! The sound on the covies was fantastic.
