Hello everyone.  I am a native Santa Barbara person that just moved back here a year ago, and I'm looking forward to contributing to the culture I've recently found in this forum.  I am a television/film professional, so I know how to do lots of stuff, but in particular, I am well equipped to do high quality audio recording, so I was thinking it might be a good start for me with you if I offer to record people's vocal performances (I just have one very high quality shotgun microphone, so it wouldn't work to do groups), and then I can upload those to a site or just give them to someone that can do that for you.  In any case, I look forward to participating in this new culture I've discovered.  Thanks.

I would like to volunteer the possibility of having a "free improvisation" music concert/event at the Pescadrome-- what I'm envisioning is an opportunity for musicians as soloists or in collaboration, acoustic and/or electronic, to improvise in the space for maybe a 2-hour concert. I welcome your feedback. Since I've just signed up on the site today and have only attended one Fishbon event, please feel free to chime in with any feedback that might help orient me to the process.


Mission and Purpose

Fishbon’s Purpose:
Fishbon's purpose is to provide a forum, education and support for creative collaboration, mentorship and the visceral experience of visual, aural and performance-based art.  It is also to provide exhibition media for the artists and their art forms.

Fishbon’s Mission:
Fishbon's mission is to encourage collaboration between artists, technologists, writers, designers, performers and participants to create unique, real-time, compelling aesthetic experiences that speak to contemporary audiences.  Fishbon believes the synergy (sharings of perspectives and skills) made possible in a collaborative space creates a unique and special context for art.  By providing context, physical infrastructure, tools, mentoring support and encouragement for creative collaboration, Fishbon is an experiential incubator for emerging cooperative working models.  Much more about the process experience than final product, Fishbon creates a diverse "interactive" learning community that would be difficult to achieve in isolated individual working environments.

Fishbon is a 501 (c) (3) arts organization
