On October 5th, 2012, Ben Rivet aka. BJSR stopped by Excursions to chat with Niki Dakota about his yoga / music project called Go W/ The Flow, and perform a few songs. While at the station, he demonstrated his looping station which allows him to create one person songs using mathematical phrasing.
Ben performed this past weekend, on October 6th, at the Midwest Outdoor Experience. He hit the stage once at 3pm where he performed his own music, and again at 7pm for an hour of Go W/ The Flow yoga.
He began practicing yoga when he was in college. After meeting yoga instructor, Tori Reynolds, Ben began attending her classes with his Larrivee guitar and mathematical phrasing looping station. He began creating rhythmic music which provided a flow for the yoga classes. With increasing success, the two began touring with the yoga classes. They have visited over 50 locations over this past summer.
Ben has appeared on WYSO in the past covering for Niki Dakota on Excursions. For More information about BJSR, visit his website at www.bjsrmusic.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/bjsrmusic.
