Davisville, 6/29/15: Dozens of old Apples, chanting for us

You or I might see 80 old computers and think of them as electronic debris. Larry Dieterich, a tech support worker who lives in Davis, saw them as the essence of a creation he calls Undo the Fall, a u-shaped enclosure that depicts spirits in the machine and represents a digital prayer. On today’s Davisville, he tells us what he created, and why. If you’re listening June 29, you can see him power up his creation tonight in Davis.

Your host, Tree, loves music.  And his theory of music involves a tree of sorts. Suffice to say it involves a trinity, exploration of themes and connections amongst recording artists, and otherwise very few boundaries.  Listen in as Tree plays music old and new, known and unknown.  Eventually if you listen long enough you might experience some musical enlightments. In the meantime, let him show you the way to the music from the tree of life.
