Spring 70: Worries

Tuesday, May 31, 2011
*out of sequence post!*
8:15am-8:45am, Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Plain, MA
very warm , patches of hazy cloud

Today’s bird is an Eastern Pee Wee – fun, confused-sounding bird. Yet another “huh?” call!

I also heard a sweet duet between a robin and a wood thrush – but my recorder ran out of juice before I could record them. Next time!

I’ve been worrying about Saturday’s FIGMENT festival performance, which is outdoors and interactive. Which of my pieces can I play that will work outdoors, with the competition of so many ambient sounds (Traffic, other festival performers, etc)?

Can I create a piece that riffs off the other sounds at the festival, using my looper?

Can I make people make deer ears, as I was once prompted to on a field trip in in elementary school? (cupping hands behind ears to "enlargen" the ears - it really amplifies hearing – try it!)
