Snowfall Echo

8 Dec

This is what I saw when I woke up this morning!

My favorite page from Yoko Ono’s book Grapefruit, a set of whimsical instructions for making conceptual music and art, goes like this:

Snow Piece

Take a tape of the sound of the snow falling.
This should be done in the evening.
Do not listen to the tape.
Cut it and use it as strings to tie gifts with.
Make a gift wrapper, if you wish, using
the same process with a phonosheet.

I’ll do this someday, but for today, with no tape recorder and only rain now that it’s evening, here is the sound of snow falling around my front porch.
