I’m blessed with a wonderful photo-journalist job. It’s a small paper. It’s a local paper. It’s a free paper. The best part about it is I get to meet the most interesting people. Plus, I learn a lot. Last week I Matt Potts and Anthony Houston.
Matt makes steelpans out of used 55-gallon drums. Oh my goodness! I never heard of these instruments before. He starts with a sledge-hammer, using smaller and smaller hammers, until the harmonics are just right.

Here’s a video of the Matt and Anthony improvising.
Aren’t they cool? I might take my flute over and jam with them on woodwind night.
