LISE

Enjoy this live performance in the WCBN-FM studio by Lise!

She was visiting Ann Arbor from France, and favored us with a performance at METAL, a metal workshop-cum-music venue, replete with industrial plasma cutter and art pieces.

Lise has been described as a singer and pianist who combines haunting ethereal vocals with an extended piano technique, which includes tapping and bowing the strings with horsehair.

An extra-extra bonus is the WCBN premiere of a demo track by Gauche Kids, a duo consisting of Lise and Detroit musician Octored. Lise talks a bit about who they are and what they do in the clip below–

Lise, you’ve got to send a Gauche Kids record to the station…!

January 27: Maize Mirchi

Today’s show features a live performance by U of M a cappella group Maize Mirchi. You can find out what they’re all about by having a listen.

I was thrilled by how well it turned out, especially seeing as this was my first time engineering a show, and I carried it out all by my lonesome. I was pretty nervous…I had help preparing all the mics and the soundboard, though, from some very skilled sound engineers at the station. Thanks, Tyler, Alex and Bryan!

See if you can identify the toy megaphone I used during the show.

And, of course, some insects make a guest appearance.

What a great day. I’ll miss WCBN in the coming weeks. Be back in a month!
