Avocet

« previous episode | next episode »

Sunday, August 08, 2010

Amplified dangling forks and spoons provide accompaniment to the songs of Avocet. Avocet is Meara O'Reilly, who has visited Spinning On Air before with the band Feathers. This time she brings her voice, guitar, and the extraordinary amplified silverware instrument she created, to the WNYC Studio for performances with her friends Eban Portnoy and Sarah Magenheimer of the bands Flying and WOOM. An avocet is a kind of water bird, and avian themes abound in Meara's songs. She talks about this, her instruments, and more, with host David Garland. This show first aired July 6, 2008.

I don't know if you're monitoring comments during the broadcast (or even if you're live!), but your guest has a gorgeous, infectious laugh, and I'm falling in love with her a little bit.
