Wood and Wire Music is pleased to announce the release of a very special CD that the proceeds will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International in their research to find a cure for type 1 diabetes. The recording titled From Brooklyn To Glindran is the duo work of Jim Goodin (USA) and Peter Thörn (Sweden). The World experimental music was spontaneously created by the two musicians who have never met in person but connected electronically through a common interest in fretless guitar. They began working together through the real-time audio streaming software NinJam which allowed them to collaborate live from their locales 4,000 miles apart. The ten improvisational tracks with influences from World Acoustic, Free Jazz and Indian Raga grew out those online sessions a few emailed file exchanges.
The interest in supporting the work of JDRF comes from both musicians personal involvement with type 1 diabetes. Thörn is afflicted as is Goodin’s daughter Callie. The official digital distribution release which preceded the CD was on April 6th, 2010, marking the anniversary of Goodin’s daughter’s diagnosis.
