1) Come on down for the September Listening Lounge!
WHEN: Monday, Sept. 8th
WHERE: Laura & Eric's
Questions? Call Laura's cell:
Just buzz the doorbell if the door's not already open.
Please bring any combination of food, drinks, audio and friends to share! Remember- You don't have to bring any audio to join in the fun (but we do love to hear what makes your ears perk up). Please keep yer audio under 6 minutes.
HOW TO GET THERE:
By public transit:
The best way to get to us is the bus, since we're not walking distance from a metro stop. but its EASY
Get off at the Dupont metro (Q St. exit) and hop onto the D2 bus, which will be waiting right outside the metro exit. It will take you directly to our place - get off at the 41st and Davis stop on the corner. We're right across from the bus stop.
By friends: hop on the DCLL Facebook page and set up some carpools!
There's usually parking around there, but if not, try New Mexico Ave, around the corner.
2) Highlights from the August lounge include
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)
