The song that was the best ever, but didn't get recorded, is going to be recorded and posted. Sound In, this time, is themed around the book "The Old Man and the Sea" and its timeless idea applied to music or song or just the newest sound that "got away" from getting recorded. It's the […]
It's ImprovFriday time folks, so let the light of inspiration shine and the sound of inspiration resonate!
Hi all! Wow, didn't we just end the last Sound-In event?… But Thursday's here and our sonic duty calls. The theme this week is — NO THEME. Have at it, and REMEMBER: these sounds are dangerous and must only be used around a supervising adult! Don't want anybody losing any fingers…
Greetings all members. This is an epic ImprovFriday as we will attempt to go for five days straight, leading all the way up to the Fourth.

Best, Jeff Fairbanks
Happy June everyone! We made it to summer. For this ImprovFriday let’s pay a little homage to John Cage and see how many works we can create for prepared piano. There is no need to be a purist and play only on a true P.P. If you can replicate the sound electronically, that’s just as […]
Helloooooo Sound-In humans! [and bots…?] Time for a new SI and this week's OPTIONAL theme is "Life in the Gaps." What does that mean? Whatever you like. Take it literally, poetically, scientifically, philosphically….musically. PROCEDURE UPDATE: Include your name in the text for your link!!
