Salsa, Raptors, and of course Duckbill Platypus
The Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra is playing tonight at the same place as before, in the secret back room of The Lovin’ Cup in Williamsburg of course. I wonder when it was that Williamsburg dropped the H at the end of it? Some Wikipedia experts speculate 1855, when the city of Williamsburgh became part of Brooklyn. I’d say it’s been long enough for that one cafe on Wythe to get in line.
Robotic Raptor is hard at work on finishing our third short film, featuring some really interesting sound-effects and mic work by some guy I’ve never met. Nevermind that. Apparently if you get a mannequin and stick two mics in his ears, it hears things just like people! When mixed with the film and listened to with headphones, everything sounds as if it’s sneaking up on you and whispering in your ear. Sneaky.
Big things in the works for us in the next few weeks as we start work on two other projects and *gasp* maybe even a collaboration in the works. Super Secret Hint: one involves a barbershop quartet!
And then there’s this.
