>> media // common themes one rehearsal soundbites

This group of music makers is a pretty funny bunch. Knowing this, I setup my minidisc recorder and grabbed our rehearsal sessions together. I excerpted some of the funnier instances.

We musicians have a weird sense of humour or an overabundance of strange enthusiasm.
