Why The Static Dive?

Published by b0bsmith on

I just wrote this for the “About” page. I like it, so I am sharing it here as well.


Why “Static Dive”? I don’t know. It sounds cool. The term refers to a technique for submerging a person or vessel (like a submarine) slowly into the water. There is a metaphor in there somewhere. I refer to it elsewhere on this site as a, “slow submersion into nothingness.” Maybe that’s life, or maybe it is just where I am in mine. It sounds Zen. That is pretty consistent with my actual view on things. I know that all sounds awfully esoteric. Good, LOL.

Why the website? Why keep making music? I will admit that I have asked myself these questions. I’m 48 years old. I’m pretty sure my rock star clock has stopped ticking. Why do any of it?

Ultimately the answer is simple, it’s what I do. Painters paint. Dancers dance. I make records. Whether or not people listen is irrelevant. If they do, all the better.

Also… it’s a lot of fun.
