Entries in weekend sound (7)
It was Maker Faire this past weekend, when all things steampunk and hacker and craft converge in one place, with fire-breathing and glow-the-the-dark robots. And this upside-down orchestra, rigged up to a computer with all the instruments overhead.
On a blustery day, a walk down to the Wave Organ with our niece and nephew, pressing our ears close to the cement pipes to hear the deep, gurgling bellows of the tides.
(It was too windy to make a good recording with my phone. This one is pretty poor, so go visit in person to hear the full-throated, watery churn)
Catching the end of a blues band while waiting for our friend's band to play. Mike and I played exquisite corpse as we drank our cold beers. Long live lo-fi entertainment.
A weekend up in Tahoe with snow so crunchy it sounded like walking on cereal. Snowball battles along the way with our three-year old nephew, then a winter picnic on a fallen log.
