Sound art often makes for good public art – something about the way that it can either work as background, or create something to stop and focus in on and contemplate. Anyway – there is a new permanent sound installation in the parking garage below Edgemar Plaza in Santa Monica, read about it here, or just go check out it in person.

I made a quick little song last night in Acid Pro.. it’s based on part of the poem The Hollow Men by T.S. Eliot, which I ran through a web based voice generator trying to read English in Spanish.
