Joseph Bertolozzi is a composer/musician based in Beacon, NY - and he's currently in Paris taking samples of sounds from the Eiffel Tower. On the eve of his departure for Paris, Joseph spoke with Chris about Tower Music and his previous project, Bridge Music which had him similarly swinging mallets at the Mid-Hudson Bridge in Poughkeepsie NY.
This recording trip to the Eiffel Tower will continue through this week and it's documented extensively on the Tower Music Facebook page.
After his conversation with Joseph, Chris mentions the project for an upcoming episode of DHR for which we are asking folks to submit recordings of themselves doing dramatic readings of Yelp reviews of Dia:Beacon. Details on how you too can participate can be found here.
Finally, visit EFF.org to see and support their effort to contest what appears to be an overreaching claim of patent protection that, if upheld could have a chilling effect on the world of podcasting.
Perhaps not simply by chance, This American Life revisits their previous show about patent enforcement and touches on this current podcasting related issue.
