Track One on 4th Ave. in Nashville, TN and gradate students from Southern Illinois University Carbondale worked together to host Soundings: An Evening of Sound Art and Performance on Saturday, May 3. The Swamp Tigers cut a live record with the help from Alex Kirt, The Woodbox Gang lead singer and guitarist. In addition to Kirt’s live performance a list of graduate students also made their mark on the emerging art scene in Nashville.

  •  Todd Birdsong – Radio After Radio
  • Stacy Jill Calvert – Notes from Las Vegas
  • Mickey Lee Everett – Limones
  • Alex Kirt: Plowing Lacquer: The Swamp Tigers Session.
    I will be producing/engineering a direct to disc analog recording of a live performance by the Southern Illinois based rockabilly band The Swamp Tigers. The recording of this live performance will be added to the Southern Illinois Music Archive collection that I am currently establishing as a major component for my MFA thesis project.
  • Matthew McGuire – The Masquerade of Red Death
  • Jay Needham – Professor
  • Alex Reeder – Picture Motion
  • JP Rhea – Time and Memory (The Haunted Clock)
  • Honna Veerkamp – Honeybee Collection

Track One hosted our event, and friends from the area directed our group around the art crawl to several fun and unique spots. Art Crawl Pop Up – Kelli Shay Hix and Josh Gumiela was held at 444 Humphrey’s. We tasted their hand crafted beer and made our way around the different art exhibits.
