Free and easy on Louisa Street. This feels like the perfect way to start the summer: playing a house concert with Thug Duo (Simon Lott and Justin Peake) in New Orleans on Saturday. It’s an early show, so come on out and there will still be time to catch some food or music or both afterwards.
Saturday May 31 5:30pm
721 Louisa Street (btw Royal and Dauphine)
New Orleans LA
Thug Duo: Simon Lott & Justin Peake
Here are the sounds of a suspension bridge I recorded on a recent trip to Camp McDowell in Nauvoo AL. I used two contact mics, one on each set of main cables. The bridge was surprisingly quiet during normal use and even when I bounced and jostled it a bit, so I tapped and scraped on the structure with a few sticks. Sounds best on headphones!
Here’s the second-generation prototype of a soprano sax / trumpet mouthpiece hybrid. This was printed on a Makerbot Replicator 2X. I modeled the soprano sax mouthpiece base and appended the geometry of a Bach 1-1/2C trumpet mouthpiece found on Thingiverse. The trumpet cup is a bit roomier than the previous prototype; I think I’ll try a trombone-sized cup next. Here’s the STL file so you can download, modify and print your own.
Whenever I try this mouthpiece on my horn my son yells at me to “Stop that horrible noise!” So it must be working…
