CAMFIRE CIRCLE SINGERS

 
 

NEW MUSIC....

I've recently been tempted back into the studio for the first time in over a decade. 

Spring Equinox 2018 saw the release of the first Campfire Circle Singers project in its initial form, the first sighting of an evolving musical journey that started in November at Campfire Convention 002.UK at Union Chapel.

Iteration #1 a collaborative remix that has culminated in the track 'Sa Ta Na Ma' (Iteration #1), seen here in pre-release form

The track was hugely significant for me in that it was the first musical event in twelve years that made me want to go back into the studio and start creating music again.

Firecasts

I have been putting together my first podcasts for Campfire Convention over the last year or so and really enjoyed the process. Here is my pick of the current crop....

 

FIRECAST 008

A Paros breakfast meeting with Mary Valiakas, founder of Campfire's Athens Beacon and Head of Innovation at the Hellenic Institute of Cultural Diplomacy. Mary talks about the growing pains associated with the move from masculine to feminine values, the shift from capitalism from collectivism and how Greece has used the grey zones created during its falling apart to maximise impact through new innovation, self-organising systems to bring philosophy home to the cradle of western civilisation.

FIRECAST 006

The story of a remix. The Sa Ta Na Ma track by the Campfire Circle Singers has marked Campfire founder and firestarter Pete Lawrence's return to the recording studio for the first time in over a decade.
