HOW MIC 2017 feat. Adam Raymonda
As our season 2 cap this year, we are happy to premiere HOW MIC, Handful of Wheel's Micro In-Car Residency Series.
For this project we were joined in the car by six writers and riders, who created flash-poetry and fiction, while being driven through the neighborhoods of Brooklyn. All the audio you hear on this track was recorded in-car, after the pieces were written, leaving no time for editing or correction of any kind. It is our hope that these moments reflect the feeling of the writers as they moved through the landscape in a reflective, reactionary way.
In a stroke of good luck, we were joined on this project by composer and audio engineer, Adam Raymonda, whose masterful work took this track to the next level. All the music and effects you hear are his vision come to life.
In the corporeal world, we passed these texts over to our friends at Fem Foundry, and they created images to accompany the writing. With the help of the crew at txt books printing press, we were able to produce a limited print of hand-cut chapbooks of HOW MIC, which can be found in and around Brooklyn.
If you read all this, thank you. If you listened, THANK YOU. Please share this labor of love, if you feel so inclined. That's it for season 2.
Buckle up, kiddos <3
