Playing the Kane Game

Playing the Kane Game

Double-bassist, improviser and composer, Dave Kane, has a clear vision of the higher path a serious musician must take: “You’re a searcher. You’re seeking something through creating music, by being a composer or an improviser. It’s a search for something and that search is the same as a spiritual practice: what is that thing, whatever it is you get a glimpse of, that other space where it’s very blissful? It’s there in all of us.”
