I've spent today cutting up ambient recordings. I have a high tolerance for that kind of thing, but not that high.
Tiny's is hiring. The thought crosses my mind: maybe I should apply. But what would happen if the only place I like to come and hang out becomes another place of work. I don't think it's a good idea for me to work here, although it seems like a lot of fun, and I'm totally qualified.
Anyway, Lindsay has commisioned Animal Kingdom to make a piece for her Locher installation. So far I've done a lot of division. I like rules and music together. Except that this won't be music, it'll be ambience on a recorded loop. Several loops, all factors of 360 (six minutes times sixty seconds). Several loops layered and beginning and ending at different times. Might it be awesome? It might.
I've been listening to The Beattles in the car, and heard "Across the Universe" on my drive here. I'm addicted to that song. I've started a cover but I don't know . . . I've gotten lazy in the heat and don't feel up to manufacturing synth sounds all day. Plus, I know that licensing a Beattles song means giving money to Michael Jackson. Right?
The Gender Party was fun yesterday--my co-worker's wife has switched gender identity to be now my co-worker's husband. Well, since they got married as lesbians, what happens now? Is their marriage valid no matter what? I smell some investigative reporting.
