(At the bottom of this email are some highlights.)
**At the meeting it was mentioned that our audio friends at HEAR NOW have great resources and a nice outlet for creative programming. We discussed getting a group of DCLL folks together to talk more about how we can/should/want to/don't want to/ work with Hear Now. If you're interested in adding your thoughts to the mix, please rsvp here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll meet for some Indian food and a chat about this with interested folks Tuesday December 6th at 7:45pm to discuss more. Please RSVP.
**The next DCLL will be Tuesday December 13th! Details coming soon. Food, friends and audio to share -- all encouraged.
now, on to the November highlights reel...
favorite single syllable words were shared to start off the night. here is what might be the first ever DCLL poem (punctuation added):
hey mwew (laser)!
play tied oy ola?
light ggllrl ilk fire,
puh brap yes slash,
Jonna shared a Long Haul productions clip from Katheryne moving out of her home to a new one. Non-narrated, very personal.
Ellen gave us a look inside family gathering time with some oral history about Martha from Joe (while others partied downstairs)
David brought live sound into the mix with a violin performance+ambient farm sunrise track and discussion of sound bed impact on story and music
Adam played "what do you mean by, who am I?" and inspired thoughtful reflection on self and life
Jeff performed (in 1983) a family ballad and helped us all see the unifying force of a good bookie.
Thanks to all who shared their time, ears and thoughts. Looking forward to December's lounge!
For those who won't be in town for it, DCLL wishes you some happy holidays!
