Published thoughts of the Chicago musician and writer Travis Bird.
The site’s title, The Land Between The Rivers, refers to a metaphor representing my desire to pursue artistic pathways that are fresh, different, and totally my own. It also describes the tremendous sense of freedom I enjoy when encountering exciting, “experimental,” or innovative art, which sometimes seems almost limitless. In between the narrow and swift rivers of established genres, sounds, and modes, there is a vast amount of land on which to follow one’s own artistic path at one’s own pace. It is this “land” that I want to explore.
