Since I never really thought of myself as a musician, I don't have a traditional set of instruments, setups, plug-ins, and such that I use to make my aural doodles.

Libation Fixation: Black Cherry Pop

Libation Fixation: Black Cherry Pop
It was December of 2015 when I first had this idea. It was December of 2017 when I finally felt like I could take action - I finally had some extra cash so I went and bought some bottles.

Poi Perfection: My Journey

By Alexandria Boddie

Poi Perfection: My Journey
I bought my first set of poi back before YouTube even existed, so there was no crowd-sourced knowledge for me to tap into to teach myself. Just the UTTERLY USELESS instruction videos on a DVD that came with the set. I managed to figure out a couple of moves, but never progressed beyond that.
