SMARTBOMB VIDEO HOME SYSTEM, a new broadcast program that showcases the sounds, colors, shapes, faces, and works of our beloved community here in the bay and beyond for the world to see. We felt an experience beyond just a concert stream was in need to really reach out and virtually hug all our loved ones out there..so we created a show full of music sets, skits, short films, animations, and messages of love and positivity…during a time where our people crave for that most…

In light of these times, with spaces and gatherings for our culture and expression on hold, we had to find a way to pivot our efforts and energy towards building a new way towards bringing the feeling of oneness and connected freedoms that we shared within our events, to all of our fam and folks around the world regardless of location and space…..

We launched our pilot broadcast to celebrate our 7th year anniversary with a star studded lineup, produced entirely DIY style on our website here: smartbomboakland.com

Garfunkle – the bio-engineering scientist by day and producer on the keys by night, returns with his new release “We Are Waves”.

Ursula K. Leguin’s translation of the Tao Te Ching includes some of her commentary along the way. “We are waves. It is the sea,” she wrote, It being capital-I It, the Way. (This commentary is on a verse that includes the line “To know harmony/ is to know what’s eternal.” Hmm.) This album, these songs, do not represent some sort of reduction of Taoist principles, but the process is – always – an attempt to lose the self in it (It?). The wave is clearly less than the sea, and yet the wave is the sea. These songs, the end result of letting what happens happen, are some solid joints, and I hope the joy of the process shines through here.

These were recorded in 2018 and 2019, and the album was finished as I prepared to move with my family, feeling very much tossed by the sea, and making every attempt to embrace the change and consider how the sea’s waves are all essentially interconnected through the ocean, something vastly larger than any individual wave and that we know very little of.

I’ll also say that “we are waves” is a reference not only to Ursula K. Leguin’s commentary, but also to a fundamental physical truth about what we are. Some of that thinking pops up in “electrical output,” one of two tracks featuring vocal samples.

Well, this is all high-minded and I mean it as well as plenty more where words fail. Thirteen jams, held together as an all-but-completely instrumental album that I hope you’ll enjoy.
