Extra-blogospheric life has been a little out of control lately; hence the silence and infrequent updating of The Reading Room, &c. One project of several is forcing me to learn a new instrument--namely, a microphone. No need to go into detail at the moment, but suffice it to say that some interesting challenges arise when you discover that every vocal skill you've spent years developing and honing is not just useless but actually detrimental. Further clues can be found in the Amoeba stash below, collected during the Bang on a Can All-Stars' free show this evening. More free Bang music at the Marathon this Saturday at Yerba Buena.
