Anyone that rides the L train in #Williamsburg has probably had the chance to catch #Mountainanimation. They are two-pair troubadours Zack Orion (vocals, banjo, foot drums) and Scott Murphy (violin, electrified violin, fiddle, back up vocals) busking in our cities inner web of subway platforms, setting the hearts ablaze of fidgety train gawkers with their riotous percussive folk/grass roots music, that is simply, electric! This weekend synchronicity was abound, e9 curator Nadeem Salaam had just spent an afternoon with his cellist for his band writing music, an evening with three violinists friends when they stumbled upon the great cellist #PeterLewey performing wonderful classical arrangements under the Arch in Washington Square Park. As the cool languorous hints and spots of summer wafted in the air, these friends departed on their own mini journeys home. On the L train #IsraelHeller, a violinist experimental artist from Williamsburg, may have began to speak of some of the best performers he has seen on subway platforms, Nadeem mentioned a duo of the name Mountain Animation, Israel has never heard of them, but music had filled their hearts all the day long and how could any of them have left feeling any less satiated, til the Bedford avenue stop swallowed Nadeem into the abyss of people, it was time to walk home, with the lovelies of female companions they waved, “Goodbye! Till next time!” as suddenly, an aria from heaven, that could have halted Hercules or Sparta stopped the two, and whom else graced their ears but the rhythmic sensational pulsating tunes of Mountain Animation! The Gods were indeed very playful last night! Nadeem Salaam spoke about his #Boweryhoustonmuralshow for makemusicny with the two men, and that my friends is how the two fine troubadour gentleman agreed to perform this year at the #Elevator9 Houston Bowery Mural Show!
