Syllabi

We compiled a six-song playlist from tracks the members had brought along, ranging from the obligatory female singers (Melissa Menago, Marilyn Scott) to classical (pianist Ivo Pogorelich) to modern (Beastie Boys, Dead Can Dance, Dire Straits). After an hour playing only those, we freestyled for another couple hours with different tracks. First up were the Renaissances and our six tracks. That done, we marked the speakers’ positions with tape, moved them out, set up the Prodigys, carefully matched their volume levels to the ESL 15As’ with SPL meters and pink noise, then played the same six tracks again. We then repeated this entire process several times.
