Telecaster Transmissions

Telecaster Transmissions 02

Street Guitarist With Aura, Venice Beach, CA. To listen, click below or visit my Soundcloud page. To see more images like this, check out My Creations at Pinterest.

I noticed this gentleman in Venice Beach making sound shapes with his beat up Telecaster, battery-powered amp, effects pedal with a looping drum beat, and a mop of tangled dreadlocks dangling from his hunched frame. It was absolutely compelling. I took a couple of photos and recorded 40 seconds of audio to document the moment, seeking to make something more elemental than just a video. I respect and support street musicians, and this guy sure had some kind of aura happening that day, too. Enjoy.
