mercator.i’m not home right now (sept-nov2008)
this project was recorded in some interesting locations. please see notes below.
imnothomerightnow (2.1mb) was mostly recorded in my crappy apartment in "greater" dc, but the crowd sample at the end was recorded from within the venerable cheering section at the seibu dome in tokorozawa, saitama, japan, as i cheered on the saitama seibu lions. they went on to win that evening’s game, as well as the 2008 japan series (thanks in no small part to my cheering efforts, i’m sure). that’s also where i took the cover photo (soon to be posted), flag being waved as though their very existence depended on it. granfallooning can be fun sometimes.
fbxrd (2.4mb) was recorded at 35,000 feet over western alaska on the way to japan. as i peered out the window of the plane, i swore i could see vladimir putin.
straitbering (2.3mb) was also recorded on the way to japan, over the bering strait (duh).
wudr (2.4mb) was recorded flying over the mississippi river valley on the way back from orange county, california.
kekkou (2.8mb) was recorded on the way back from japan.
uni (2.2mb) was also recorded on the way back from japan.
AnThEm (2.3mb) was recorded in orange county, a couple hours after Anthony ("An" for Anthony) and Tommy ("Th" for Thomas) were married on october 4th, 2008. (the "Em", by the way, is to complete the word "anthem", and doesn’t stand for some word like "Embolism" or "Emphatically" or anything.)
overIDL (4.9mb) was recorded as i crossed the international date line for the first time.
oishi (3.7mb) was recorded after the seibu lions game in my hotel room on yokota air base.
kaliq (3.1mb) was recorded after i was awakened by a noisy baby on the way back from japan.
anago (1.9mb) was also recorded on the way back from japan.
kamLoops (2.3mb) was recorded on the way to japan, high over canada. i mean altitudinally high.
flyover (2.6mb) was recorded on the way back from orange county, somewhere over "flyover country", which is a really condescending term, but hey, that’s what i was doing.
