I just love being inspired by other people. Through the grapevine of college friends, I recently found out about the incredible work of one of my classmates from Bard. I remember Greg Fox as a cute drummer who hung out with all the other cool musicians, but always had a sense of serenity about him. Turns out, these days, he is making incredible meditation-inspired music with lots of critically acclaimed musicians.
He did an interview with the Village Voice a few years back where he discusses how meditation informs his creative process. His totally honesty about his connectedness to the world and syncing with its flow is just inspiring.
His album of music made from data on his own heartbeats is also totally mesmerizing. Go buy it!
