The Question is a new, disruptive community in which the idea of truth is explored through arts and music as well as thought-provoking presentations.
For those that do not know, I have been heavily involved in building the community’s online presence (website, social media, etc.) from the very first gathering.
The website (link above) now contains blog posts, a podcast, and video highlights from each monthly gathering. We have also been fairly active on social media and YouTube as a collective.
From a technical standpoint, I’ve also had the opportunity to capture video from the presentations. I don’t necessarily see myself as a video expert, but I have learned a lot over the last few months, and with the help of several others, I have been able to put together some nice-looking videos from past gatherings (though we are somewhat limited by the technology we’re using).
At our first gathering, the talented Carla Olive played three of her original songs, and I wanted to share these videos with you. Carla is known for hosting several open mics in the Calgary locality, and has become a fixture in the music scene.
Carla has nearly two decades of experience in the music industry, and is a multi-instrumentalist. On this occasion, she performed the songs “Cry of the World”, “Mother Nature”, and “Set Us Free” on acoustic guitar.
Since The Question is an organic gathering place for those who wonder about our complex selves, world, and universe, these videos also present the opportunity to learn how and why the songs were written in the first place. Take a look.
I hope you enjoyed this performance via Carla Olive. I will be back with more videos in the near future, as we have already had multiple gatherings, and several different artists have already shared their talent with us. You are also welcome to check out what we’re up to at The Question at any time (link above).
