• David Bowie Tribute

    Posted Jan. 14, 2016 at 11:09 a.m. to Jason Brock Public | Comment

    You'd truly have to be floating in a tin can far away from the world to not be inspired by the life and the work of David Bowie.  As an artist and as a human, he opened up doors to new worlds for us to explore.  Throughout the course of my life as an artist, David was a icon of reinvention, creativity and mystery.  His music stands the test of time.  So will Bowie's legacy.

    I recorded this song "The Stars Look Different" because I wanted to say thank you through music. Mixed with samples released under Creative Commons, by ccMixter artists stefsax and Dimitri Artimenko, the track is a reminder to me of the creative process, of what inspires us, and of how we communicate.  We are all connected.   Thanks David, you really took the world for a beautifully creative ride.

    Thousands upon thousands of YouTube videos feature SpinningMerkaba music.  If however you search for SpinningMerkaba in YouTube's Audio Library, the search comes up empty?  Why?  In fact, if you search for any CcMixter remix artist in YouTube's library, not one match is found.  If you search in YouTube's main search engine, a long list of videos featuring ccMixter artists appears.  This is because the artists are attributing correctly, but YouTube has yet to acknowledge the contributions of Creative Commons artists by including them in their content library.  I for one would like to see that change.
    If you would like YouTube to include the catalogue of CcMixter.org within their Audio Library, please contact me.  Together we can make Creative Commons Music even easier to share!
    Looking for music to use in your videos, music for your store, music for your commercials?  Choose Spinning Merkaba.

    Lucidity Festival brought together artists, musicians and cultural creatives for a three day journey in Live Oak CA.  During the decompression I recorded a mix that, well, is an attempt at capturing the feel of a walk back to family camp during sunset.  Enjoy!

  • ccMixter Editorial Pick for Spinningmerkaba Remix "Life"

    Posted Aug. 12, 2014 at 6:57 p.m. to Jason Brock Public | 1 Response

    It's the Big Summer Music Fest that prompted me to come out of the garden and dust off my gear to once again add some content to the ccMixter.org community of artists that share share and keep sharing!

    As if the enjoyment of getting back in the mix wasn't enough, I was slapped silly and smiling with an editorial pick for my remix of panu's sample acoustic track "En la Manera..." cut up with my spoken word entitled "Half Dome."  The poem was inspired by a trip to Yosemite, (surprise)

    The track is titled "life" and is licensed for sharing under a cc-by-nc license.  Thanks ccMixter!

    Jason Brock (aka spinningmerkaba) rocks. And soon the sport-loving world will know how hard. His track New York City (instrumental) will be featured as part of a 30-minute documentary about basketball player Shawn Bradley on May 21. Check it out and listen for this awesome track while you watch. Peace.
