Millions of Americans are documenting this past year of pandemic life in journals, diaries and songs. In Cambridge, some residents gave voice to their experiences in a unique way — capturing this period in their lives in a play produced by the Multicultural Arts Center, “Cambridge: Our Town Our Stories.” Created in the style of Thornton Wilder’s 1938 classic drama, “Our Town,” which explores the fictional experiences of everyday small-town living, Cambridge's version is based on the experiences of residents during a year of global pandemic. No fiction here — theirs are authentic reflections of a scary and uncertain time. Listen to host Callie Crossley interview three such residents about their roles in the play, and their experience over the past year.
Neuma Records announces the immediate CD release of Ken Field's "Transmitter", with digital release to follow 4/2/2021. A collaboration with producer Erdem Helvacioglu, the source material was created during 2020's period of social isolation at Revolution Sound Studio as a solo improvisational project using Field's live looping electronics. With the help of NYC & Istanbul-based Helvacioglu, it has become a constantly transforming & enveloping sound environment.
