PRESENTED ON OCT 21, 2017
IN EL PASO @ VOL 17

People who have anxiety usually have a hard time explaining what it is to those that never experience it. One way to describe it is it having many of the same qualities as the loud/quiet/loud dynamic of rock n’ roll songs. Leonard Martinez’s presentation looks at the heady topic of anxiety through the lens of music. All you’ll feel is calm - hopefully.
