In the spirit of the old Freelance Cafe gatherings, David King Dunaway is hosting a listening event in San Francisco on Monday, April 1, 6-8pm. Details below. -Mia
Now that the votes are in for a date for our Sonic Soiree, a more or less annual get-together of bay are radio indies and editors, particularly those belonging to Audio Independents in Radio (AIR), we have a date: April 1 (6-8:00pm)–and that's no joke!
What we've done in the past is that anyone who wants to play a piece 6:00 and under, or a similar excerpt of a longer piece, brings it on CD/DVD or flash (thumb) drive(or in multiple formats, CD preferred). Let me know when you get here, so we can set up a playlist I'll have a mac for audio-slides. We'll take turns giving you comments, that hard-to-find feedback for solo producers.
There's no admission, and anyone interested in the zesty local indie community in audio is welcome to attend. People sometimes bring snacks, and we could gather at 5:45, and start listening a bit later. Afterwards, if anyone wants, we could go out for beers or food.
I hope we can do two of these; and for the second, I could invite folks to the SFSU audio room for fine surround sound, if desired. I hope this works for those interested; and that I'll see you in two weeks or so.
The address is 121 Kensington Way, which is just off Portola as you drive south towards Vicente and Claremont and 280 in the West Portal district. There's usually plenty of street parking. My little apartment is just down a flight of stairs from the main entrance to the house.
If you are traveling by MUNI, it's very convenient: most outward bound munis stop at West Portal Station (not the j-Church), just a few minutes beyond Van Ness. The stop is at the corner of West Portal and Ulloa. Cross the muni tracks and continue up the hill on Ulloa, about five blocks, to Kensington: and it's the third house on your left.
