Ok so, some background. I spent the past 4 years building this platform that you're using right now (Cur1yJ.com). It's focused on creating traditional and digital art, exploring technology, learning, & growing TOGETHER.. I run a software business full time, and I'm a "master" oil painter studying techniques of golden age renaissance creators. My partner and I live in the mountains so you'll catch some deer and fox and definitely our 2 cats live on stream some times.
I just started live streaming part time @ 8am MST on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. You can watch live right here, or on Twitch.tv. Archives, past broadcasts, highlights, and other content around our broadcasts will live in the Streams section.
We talk a lot about digital art, painting techniques, technology, software development, design, business, community, current events, emotions, and whatever the vibrations call for. We do group studies/explorations live on stream A LOT, so you can join in and discover processes with us in real time!
We are really trying to explore and discover.. create with and support each other… and cultivate an awesome, caring community. I hope we can carve out a positive, caring corner of the interwebs.
Our arms and spirits open if you want to connect and chat or collaborate!
Welcome to the community! <3 thanks for listening..
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.
A look at the art/music studio we built in the south coast of MA. Poured my spirit into this place. One of the hardest parts about moving West was leaving this place's energy.
We live-streamed part of the creation of this album when Yopoh was formed and this platform was in beta. Check out the official release here and listen below... Artwork by Louis Johnson.
So we decided to see if we could create and release 30 music tracks in 30 days. PCK made 40. Check 'em out below or listen on SoundCloud.
