Lower left green box Labels sound.
The vocal clip is a sample from Mariza. She's Malagasy, and very famous in the larger world.
Made with d-lusion's Rubberduck bass synth and Drumstation
Belgian is Moonfish and Audacity and some old wav samples.
Willy Moran is a contact-pickup duct-taped to the guitar and held down by the heel of my thusly immobilized right hand, run through the microphone port on a Turtle Island sound card and recorded with Audacity. Tuning is D-A-C#-F#-A-C#. Watch the volume!
These aren't works or even projects - I'm not sure what they are, besides snippets.

"The George Grantham Bain Collection represents the photographic files of one of America's earliest news picture agencies. The collection richly documents sports events, theater, celebrities, crime, strikes, disasters, political activities including the woman suffrage campaign, conventions and public celebrations. The photographs Bain produced and gathered for distribution through his news service were worldwide in their coverage, but there was a special emphasis on life in New York City. The bulk of the collection dates from the 1900s to the mid-1920s, but scattered images can be found as early as the 1860s and as late as the 1930s."
