We gathered back in Teen Study Room #119 today to record some more music with our teens. This week, however, we had Michael Whittaker helping us out. Michael’s part of our Teen Library team and has a pretty awesome past history of dabbling in all sorts of cool music things. He’s also really good at twisting knobs and making recordings sound pretty. This week we started out with our drums machines roaring in the background, hitting buttons and making a sound collage. The recordings happening this year are little pieces of music: a sound here, a voice there, and some spoken word and organ in between.
An idea being tossed for the recordings happening this summer is to compile everything into one long piece…a sound collage of teens…that tells the story of the teen community who visited the library in 2012
I’ll be back next week with some more information about MAKE MUSIC AT THE LIBRARY 2012 and hopefully some music!
