Live Soundscape: Treehouse Improv

I did live soundscaping at the SEA Change Gallery, as part of an interactive event put on by Cherie Blackfeather called Imagination Reclamation ~ Coming to Our Senses, as part of a month-long series of events called Apathy Rehabilitation Project put on by The Village Building Convergence.


It was a lot of fun. I was perched in a little, cozy treehouse-like perch above the gallery floor with my laptop, mixer, sampler. Buddha Machine, etc.
The mix consisted of multiple Buddha loops, Aeolian wind harp sounds, some tape collages I made over 15 years ago, Elizabeth Claire Prophet and a ten-second sample of Flora Purim run through an audio blender, some heavily processed didgeridoo loops, cats, bees, birds and a chorus of frogs.
The following audio is the off-the-board recording, so you miss all of the wordless play sounds of the event participants. I only edited out one chunk in the middle where I played something I didn’t make myself, so I could climb down the ladder to take a pee, eat some hors d’oeuvres and go outside to smoke a cigarette.
Fun show. Many people at the event looked like neon colored mudmen, they were so splattered with paint.
