004 Poi Live! 001... Stevenson's Square, Manchester 15•3•15• So... No huge fanfare or excersize in public relations was needed for the first Poi Live! Experience... A little tabletop stage in an unassuming square in the centre of Mancunia... A lad from Blackpool with a sampler, fx pedal and microphone... Oh yeah, and a huge-huge spirit and performance... Screaming it out from the soul, then delicate falsetto and atmospheric spacey vibes...
For the folks passing by there's plenty of time to 'get it' in yer own time... Some of this just ain't easy listening, like Joy Division or the Velvet Underground, it ain't tame nor tepid... It's hot and wild and elemental, that's just the way it is... This was a statement in what we have to offer... A time and a place where Poi People came together, shared in the creation and captured the moment... Maybe some of this just passed folks by and that's cool... For those that don't get it no explanation is possible... For those that do, no explanation is necessary... Poi Live! expressed itself today and will grow organically over time... You're welcome to join us again in the moment thru Love & Light... Geo... 15•3•15•
......... 003 9.3.15. ......... 002... Ok, not too much fanfare today but that's cool... We've been part of a momentous occasion... And worked together to achieve something quite significant... We shall keep the momentum up over the coming days and weeks and bring our collective vision into realisation... The Poi Spayce Ark is launched... And a pleasant journey to all that set sail in her...   geo... 3.3.15. ......... Poi Blog 001... So, I walk and walk and jump on a tram, floating past where I grew up... Meeting up with the brothers at Carl's place... We'd hoped that we could resolve a few issues and conflicts that arose but someone bailed out of the Spayce Ark... I just hope that when he pulls the rip-cord that a bunch of cutlery doesn't fall out, or a grand piano!!! It's all dead growed-up and everything... But we laugh and joke about things... It's fun, serious fun... We discuss a plan of action for the label launch, philosophy and a mission statement rewrite and edit... And a mid term roadmap of what we want to achieve and how to implement ideas in practical and meaningful ways... Being able to share our thoughts, challenge one another and scrutinise details, so that we build a consensus based upon mutual respect and a shared vision... And right at the end of the gathering Will sends us a little video he's made for Elementz of Poi... It rounds off the evening perfectly... Psy, Carl, Ian, Sean and myself journey on... Geo... 1•3•15•
