Highlights from the August Lounge
Real stories overhead about rats on leashes in a well known grocery store chain were brought to DCLL ears by Jocelyn
(apologies, its kind of gross). Tom
shared some sonic soothers, from his international layered piano series- this one from London Pianos. Also some duets and trios of night frogs in harmony and demonstrating advanced principles in poly-rhythmic awesomeness. He closed with a lamp-shade-gong-song (twice, because we all wanted to hear it again) from a commercial project he's composed for a lamp store. Ellen,
gave us an audio "screening" of the DCLL submission for the 24 hr KCRW Radio Challenge. Pet peeves never sounded so good. Cameos by DCLL members were enjoyed by all. George
brought it home (well, it was home already since it was at his home) with Charlie Parr live performance recordings demonstrating the art of 'small and close'- small recorders, positioned in tight yielding great results.
Other memorable moments include discussing the melodies of integers and the talents of Senate stenographers.
Hope you cam make it to add your sounds and laughs and thoughtful replies to the September Lounge! (see above)
