If you're on EC, then there's a pretty good chance that you're already familiar with Hal McGee's Apartment Music series, which takes place in his own living room.
This one took place on a Sunday afternoon as opposed to the usual Saturday to accommodate Hal Harmon's work schedule.
There were many regulars at this event (Hal and Mark McGee, Hal Harmon, Lumen K, and myself) plus several people performing there for the first time (Todd Novosad, Adam and Aimee Naworal, Jonas van den Bossche, and Emmy Lou).
I started recording "noise music" in early 2004, completely unaware of any "scenes" or other individuals doing this sort of thing. A lot of lo-fi recordings on a portable tape player, oftentimes guitar or bass feedback drone and delay.
