Electric Forest Photos: Thursday and Friday
This is the first of a 3 set series of Electric Forest photos that I took at Electric Forest 2015 in Rothbury Michigan. This set spans the first two days of the event and it entails many collaborations that go against the grain of what some might consider a normal collaboration.
Case in point here is the Skrillex and String Cheese Incident collaboration for the tune LA Woman by The Doors. Many people online were giving the collab a lot of undeserved grief, but I believe Kyle Hollingsworth, the pianist from the String Cheese Incident, nailed it when he talked about how he thinks it’s really cool that people are able to come together and play music despite how different the genre is between the artists. It is a true representation of what it means to be able to connect and set differences aside. So for all you jaded music fans out there that still think EDM and Jam culture are divided, get over yourselves, because Sonny did a very justifiable rendition of The Doors. They don’t just “press play,” these are musicians that can play like hell.
Other collaborations include Cheese with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Lettuce with Break Science.
Set 2 will be coming soon….
