The music of 365 Sketches

We're less than a week away from the Opening Night Extravaganza of 365 Sketches.

Which means we're also less than week away from "Weeks 3 & 4: Diversity Chicken," which is the 10 pm show on opening night.

Which means it's Sound Design Time.

I've been using the Speakeasy voice recording app on my iPhone to record original material, the interwebz to find non-original material, and Garage Band on my trusty Mac to compile all of this material into something that serves the show, and it was during this process that I realized what a simply bizarre set of sounds we've put together for this project.

Our evening includes music by:
  • The Beatles
  • Abdel Alim Hafez
  • The Squirrel Nut Zippers
  • Electric Light Orchestra
  • Joe Cocker
  • Keith Jarrett
  • Tan Dun
  • Joe Esposito
  • The John Barry Orchestra
  • Wings
It also includes two different kinds of gunfire, three different computer sound effects, an egg frying, a gong, three different TV/radio theme songs, the sound of a skillet hitting someone in the head and an angry mob.

Weirdest mix tape ever, Joe. What have you gotten us into?


  1. Sounds like whenever I put my iTunes on shuffle.

  2. There is a chance you are qualified for a free Apple iPhone 7.
