the last week of the year and the last of the sounds. today i’ll be composing a little bit of music, maybe 1 minute long, with a broken guitar destined for the big guitar rack in the sky, and that will be the last sound of the year. for now, here’s the last week of quiet sounds, some of the simple sounds which made me stop and listen more closely.

DECEMBER 23
no sound.

DECEMBER 24
New Hartford, CT, around 9pm

a tall, 4-tined sculpture by Harry Bertoia owned by my uncle who’s father was given the sculpture by Bertoia himself. this was recorded on christmas eve and, sadly, in a rush only with my iPhone as, in classic Tascam DR-1 style, the “fully charged” battery proved to be dead.

DECEMBER 25
Suffield, CT, 7:15am

an old, spinning, wooden christmas toy in the library of my parents’ house in front of the fireplace on christmas morning.

DECEMBER 26
Suffield, CT, late morning

rain on the tin roof of my parents’ house, recorded through a partially open window.

DECEMBER 27
Pound Ridge, NY, morning

a water-spritz bottle, misting the houseplants.

DECEMBER 28
Pound Ridge, NY, 3:04pm

shaking a California “San Francisco” snow globe. unfortunately, you can’t hear the sound of the glittery “snow” settling on the skyline.

DECEMBER 29
Norwalk, CT, around 1pm

at a bowling alley with annoying music, loud people, and the oddly fun sport of bowling.

DECEMBER 30
Pound Ridge, NY, 5pm?

one of the last recordings to be made with a broken guitar (owned by gwendolyn alker and kenneth kirschner). this was the guitar used on “northern”, but it’s in pretty sad shape. it’s resting on a chair.
