February 2017

It’s almost Spring and hope springs eternal! It’s been a weird season weather-wise, yet there’s a lot of inspiring and beautiful music in the air and paintings on the easel!

As the Holiday season has waned, I am looking forward to the beauty of the Spring flowers  and the release of my new recording with the amazing Bruce Arnold on guitar “That’s What That Is”.  We have been exploring our Electro-Acoustic duo with both of us playing our instruments through electronic effects while Improvising  contemporarious songs.

Bruce plays his Guitar through SuperCollider and my vocals go through Eventide effects.  We both use the wonderful JAM PEDALS and here are a few photos of our visit to the Jam Pedal Booth at the NAMM show last month.  Thanks to all the folks there, especially founder, engineer and guitarist Jannis Anastasakis Marinos and Emmanuel Vourakis.  I will post some photos on the Photos page here.

I invite you to check out an Interview that I was honored to do for the JazzBluesNews.space website.  I had a chance to share my thoughts about music and art and how I got to where I am these days. Thanks to Simon Sargysyan for asking me such thoughtful questions! Click this link to read:

I’m also thrilled to become part of a new artist website that features many wonderful works by (outdoor) Plein Air painters.  Please check out some of my works that are for sale (hint, hint!) at http://pleinair.store/judi-silvano.html and feel free to contact me about any of my other paintings that are also shown on my website here on the Paintings page.

Stay warm and safe and rest up – the Spring Frolics are coming soon!  Wishing You All the best of Love and Music!  Judi
