Velveteen Rabbi Mix

It’s been a long while since I’ve shared any audio experiments. I can’t/won’t admit to any creativity on my part for the material I mix aside from my recognition of something delightful in the juxtaposition. Such was the case this evening when visiting an old blog page of Rachel Barenblat and was surprised to hear a number of poems read simultaneously via some old javascript. I thought it was worthy of sharing given that the ephemeral nature of accidental beauty deserves recognition.
