Lennon: The Auricular Artist

This is a writing for my friend Lennon Bone who has a great blog about life/music/and anything and everything that happens to fall into his brain. He is the drummer of a local Ozarkian band known as Ha Ha Tonka and has been a good friend throughout the years. I’ve been watching his band continue to grow and he’s taken on several side projects that are turning out quite nicely: Varsity Club Sunshine Coach / Son of Jerry / The Swayback Gents

Yesterday he blogged about an experiment he’s doing that involves both him as the musician/auricular artist and you/me as the listener to create a piece of art. He’s made a short audio clip about a minute long and all he asks is that you listen and take 5-10 minutes to write your thoughts/reactions to what you hear. If you’d like to participate go read his post from yesterday and give him a comment on your thoughts. I’d ask if you are going to do that go HERE or the big picture up top now so you’re thoughts aren’t influenced by what I’m about to write next.

Lennon’s Post

My thoughts on Auricular Art Pt. 1:

The sound of silence
Sharp and piercing it’s interrupted
Thud
Dull and repetitive
Opposing
Forward and Backward
Highs and Lows
Cut, cut, cut
