Steve Carter And Scattered Ashes - "A Question Of Identity" Album Production And Tour

Project 2015-07-07 12:39:07 +1200

Previously a Health Promoter with the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand/Like Minds, Like Mine, Steve Carter presents 'A Question of Identity' - an album and show themed to combine music and words into a 21st century advocacy for warts-and-all wellbeing. Sometimes, it feels right to explore a new approach to getting a message across, so through music, poetry, presentation and story-telling, all laid over his idiosyncratic and unique style, he presents the case for a dissolute and, ultimately, loose approach to the healthy life that actually seems to work.

Themes range across subjects such as monkey-mindedness, addictions, relationships, mental illness and the devastation and transformation wrought by the Christchurch earthquakes.......oh, and pool......but always promote the case for diversity, peace, love, tolerance and compassion. It is open-hearted, brutally honest and shot through with dark humour and world-weary wisdom.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now that most of the recording is done, I need to get the album into a studio to tidy up the lo-fi delivery. Once that is done, I'm going to hit the road and take the show and the message around Aotearoa.

So please assist in the evolution of a new form of health promotion based on the advocacy of lived experience. Pledge me money for a muso ear, studio chops and gas for my van and help me in my continuing quest to make a difference, my way......

"Bundjalung people Their religion provided an explanation for the world as experienced by the Bundjalung people and it gave them the laws that they followed daily. The foundation of their beliefs was the Dreamtime or [The] Dreaming. They learned from their fathers over the centuries that the land was created through the movement and creation of spiritual beings and the creatures of nature. Google Ads There is a dreamtime story of Wollumbin, said to be Warrior Chief of the mountain. The spirits of the mountains were warriors. The wounds they received in battles can be seen as scars on the side of the mountain and the thunder and lightning are the effects of their battles. When you look toward Wollumbin from the north, you can see the face of the Warrior Chief in the mountain's outline. Another sacred site with special significance for the Minjungbal people is located at South Tweed Heads. There is the sacred Bora Ground, and surrounding bushland that links them spiritually to their ancestors. It was last used traditionally in 1910."
