I kind of hope someone has the guts to record one in a bathroom

I'm going to try to stop posting about the Alvin Lucier thing other than to point out that it is turning out to be COMPLETELY AWESOME

@phooky this is the perfect fucking end to the pandemic.. I don't know if her zoom is frozen and it just adds to the performance

Just to be clear here: if I were not already sleep deprived and responsible for small children, I would *completely* be livetooting 27 hours of I Am Sitting In A Room. As it is I'm bummed I'll be asleep for the Georgia Hubley/Ira Kaplan/James McNew parts.

ok i'm calling out aki takahashi for just shutting off her camera after she finished the blurb, robbing us of even the awkward amusement of watching an artist trying not to squirm

everyone so far is performing in "keep a straight face and try not to check my watch" mode but i'm hoping at least one performer breaks out some yo yo tricks or something

Show thread

in case you are wondering if i'm going to be liveblogging the next twenty six hours of alvin lucier performances: no i am not

but i am loving the "truck backing up beeps" making their way into the mix; this is like 50% lucier and 50% cage at this point

Alvin Lucier is somehow now 90 years old, and for his birthday 90 different artists are staging "I am sitting in a room".

We had three generations of moms over on Sunday so we pulled out all the stops and got tons of different flowers and they're all blooming at once and not gonna lie: friends, it smells like a turd party in here

Now, from the makers of Macbeth: Lady Macbeth, a Macbeth specially designed for women

[4yo, opening a velvet-lined case containing candlesticks that my parents gave us:] ooh la la!

This internet radio station which streams "the hidden activity of a freshwater pond" using DIY hydrophones (underwater microphones) attached to a floating solar-power system seems pretty Merveilles! zachpoff.com/artwork/pondstati I haven't been able to listen live yet due to time differences, but the archives are really interesting.
