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.

The Midwest Outdoor experience kicks off today, Oct. 5th, at 6:00pm, and will last until tomorrow night, Oct. 6th, at Eastwood Metropark.  Teamed with Dayton Music Festival and vendors from around the country, this year's event is expected to draw a larger crowd than in recent years.
