I was unexpectedly asked to participate in Taped Together, which created a summer playlist for 2010. The project, run by the brilliant Mel Exon and Maria Popova, attempts to intersect two seemingly contradictory cultural trends: curation and crowd-sourcing. Each day of the summer solstice a different “interesting person” (or in my case, “someone pitied by the creators”) was asked to contribute a track along with some accompanying words.
I chose “Quiet Little Voices” by We Were Promised Jetpacks. You can listen to the track and read my brief submission here.
