Last month Mike and I were asked to participate in a collaborative project that revolves around "The Songs We Carry." The project is by The Music Center, Super Astig, Search to Involve Pilipino Americans (SIPA). The final product is Pop-Ups! A pop up museum located at The Music Center.
The process started as a writing group. We gathered at SIPA with old and new friends. Listened to songs we have chosen and began writing responses to prompts. These notes became the base for the stories and poems we would later record. It reminded me of an old tumblr I did, My Life In Five Songs. I asked folks to give me five songs and what they meant to them.
When I was working on 'The Songs We Carry' I went back to my own 'My Life In Five Songs' and picked one that resonated with me the most, Sonic Youth's Superstar.
Hope to see you at Pop-Ups this weekend friends!
