“Songs About Packaging” recap


Randy Ludacer’s performance at the Freshkills Park site last Saturday was terrific.  An eager audience poured out of our Parks bus at North Mound to hear Randy serenede them (and the millions of tons of discarded packaging buried underfoot) with the new album of songs he’d recorded for the event, including “The Prettiest Package” and “This Landfill is Your Landfill.”  Thanks to Randy, and to the folks at COAHSI for funding his project.  This was a really fun event, and we’re hoping it’s the forerunner of many more musical performances at the site.  (We have a set of guidelines for anyone interested in putting together a proposal for an event or performance.)

The crowd for this performance was full of photographers, videographers and bloggers.  We’ve just uploaded a set of photos from the event to our flickr page.  Artist Tattfoo Tan has posted a short video clip.  Marijke from Landfill Diaries has posted her impressions.  If you’ve got a photo set to share, please let us know, and we’ll link to it here.

UPDATED: Andrew Gardner has posted a nice flickr photo set of the event.
