Creativity, Music, & Spirit: A Conversation with Alex de Grassi

Date: Monday, November 26, 2018
Time: 7:45-9pm
Location: DRBU Southwing - 2nd Floor Student Lounge

Alex de Grassi, contemporary guitarist, composer and one of Mendocino County's own musical luminaries will join with the Dharma Realm Buddhist University community to explore the sources of musical inspiration and sustaining a lifetime of artistic creativity.

We encourage students, faculty, and staff to come with questions, such as "where does the impulse for composing arise?" or "how do you make it through dry spells in creativity?" or "do you ever in performance feel that you transcend the music and if so, what are the conditions that create the state and that end the state?"- or any other similar inquiries :)

Here is a brief video of Alex de Grassi introducing his custom signature Lowden guitar, which he will be bringing to DRBU next week. Alex's artistic sensitivity is viscerally conveyed as he explains what he looks for in an instrument.
