Playing Making Recording: NEIGHBOR
Playing Making Recording is an ongoing class offered through The Public School, Philadelphia and exists as a series of concentrated music making and recording experiments. Each open door session invites a revolving group of partcipants to come play, compose and record a series of songs during the weekend long intensive. Musicians of all kinds and levels of proficiency were invited to attend and contribute.
In considering this session’s theme NEIGHBOR!, we encouraged participants to bring recorded sound from their particular neighborhood – additionally, PMR provided ambient tracks from the surrounding neighborhood around Basekamp. These recordings operated in part as springboards for the weekend of music making.
Recordings culminated from the weekend of playing and recording are eventually edited, mixed and offered free for download. Recordings from the June 12th and 13th, 2010 weekend can be accessed at http://making.bandcamp.com
