pouring my own (musique) concrète

…in which I finally release Pour Your Own (musique) Concrète. Sort of.

Originally imagined as a gallery installation, the web-hosted version has been optimized for smart-phone use by the socially distanced.

Blessings for the Bees of the Dead

Jacob‘s long fascination with apiculture–he is an active member of the Long Beach Beekepers–and our incipient dread of the impact of species collapse suggested our theme for soundpedro 2019.

blown away

…in which I try out the “Ultimate 545.” “Vintage” is an odd adjective, no longer just the year of a wine pressing, but the quality of an old thing, purported by age to be somehow valuable.

Last year’s dates, venue, and lineup all changed and we couldn’t have predicted the outcome of an autumn equinox show by the end of July (this year, “October” starts in September, […]
