At the beginning of the year we spoke with Ryan Holladay of Bluebrain about his favorite tracks from their Soft Power LP. We also noted the band’s penchant for boombox events involving the DC community, like the recent “Boombox Walk” during the Cherry Blossom Festival. Now, the duo is back with another interesting, DC-related side project. We’ll let Ryan explain that one:
“Essentially we (Bluebrain) have created an audio companion to the Sant Ocean Hall in the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum. It’s a twenty minute piece of music that we’ve written to be played while exploring this section of the museum.”
Perhaps the best thing about this project is that it can be done at your leisure. All you need to do is download the file from www.bluebra.in, and then make your way to the museum.
For those that missed out on Bluebrain’s past events, this is a great way to experience the kinds of quirky things they do that reference their home city.
