First piece is Max Richter’s “from 553 w elm st., logan, illinois (snow).” Second is (so far) the memory palace’s only repeat music: a loop taken from “Triangles and Rhombuses” by Boards of Canada (find the other one. it’ll be like some sort of not-particularly-fun, prizeless game).
The Hoover Dam is rad. The sculpture is rad. The star map is super rad. And super ridiculous. Go see it. If it’s been awhile since you’ve gone to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s website, here’s an article about the sculpture.
This piece was premiered (if you will) as a live reading at Issue 2 of Pop Up Magazine in San Francisco. It was very fun.
The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia, a collective of independently owned and operated podcasts.
