Episode details

The Monkey Tree, Barton Springs Pool

Porch Swing Orchestra is an art project that pairs music recorded outside with images made on-site, performed and recorded at home and away, solo, and along with others.

Our orchestra is comprised of birds, guitars, artists, poets, and passing cars who spontaneously create ephemeral, symphonic, chance-inspired compositions.

All recordings were made in Austin, Texas unless otherwise noted.
