  5. 129 Cars | This American Life

    We spend a month at a Jeep dealership on Long Island as they try to make their monthly sales goal: 129 cars. If they make it, they’ll get a huge bonus from the manufacturer, possibly as high as $85,000 — enough to put them in the black for the month. If they don’t make it, it’ll be the second month in a row.

  8. Acoustic architecture

    How does music speak to the buildings that house it?

    Music has always been a conversation with its environment, but from the 15th Century on, the craft became much more deliberate. And acoustic architecture has changed a lot since Dufay and the Gabrielis were composing their choral works for the Basilicas of Italy.

    Palaces, cathedrals, concert halls all got the bespoke treatment from composers like Bach and Beethoven. But as we reach the 20th Century and the machine-age, a different sonic logic starts to work. While the tradition was still maintained by people like Benjamin Britten, new minds like Edgard Varèse started to see other parallels between architecture and music. By the time we get to Iannis Xenakis, the architect-turned-composer, the idea of music and structure start to merge.

    And today the disciplines of architecture and music are spawning brand new hybrids—architects design music—musicians perform buildings.

    So, would you like to live in my song?

  9. Pop Up Circus - an outback odyssey

    Last spring, the opal mining Corner Country town of White Cliffs held an Underground Art Festival and, as part of the celebration, Jon Rose led a group of musician/sound artists into the small but very engaged community.

    The Sound Circus brought sonic work, which uses fragile new media and homemade technologies, to challenging and remote environments and conditions hostile to Homo urbanus (heat, flies, floods, snakes, etc). It’s a test for a musician, their creativity, and their technologies. The mission also examined the notion of whether a group of ‘blowins’ could contribute to a ‘singing up of country’ in a place where indigenous traditional culture has all but been eradicated. (Mutawintji National Park once hosted huge corrobories of over 3,000 people.) The circus sound artists offered improvised performances, interactive musical ‘play’ and highly successful school workshops.
