Kankakee, Mississippi, Wabash: the Other Side of the River (a journey)

Several weeks ago my sister, Nichole, came down for a weekend visit and we decided to make some musique concrète.

We walked around West Lafayette and Lafayette, recorded sounds, talked, and then went into the studio to sample our discoveries.

The result was our collaborative album: Kankakee, Mississippi, Wabash: the Other Side of the River (a journey).

Nichole worked on the Kankakee album and I worked on the Mississippi. To create the mighty Wabash, you play both albums together at the same time. We do realize that this combination is not potamologically correct, however, your aural senses will overlook this critical flaw.

Enjoy!
