DC Listening Lounge began in the fall of 2004 by like-minded audio enthusiasts as an informal place to listen, experiment and learn more about the art and craft of sound. We continue to meet once a month in DC living rooms to share and listen to one another’s latest audio finds- and to continue an ongoing conversation about sound and creative storytelling.
We always welcome curious visitors, eager listeners, and sound enthusiasts of all stripes and types. To join our mailing list or learn more about our monthly meetings, email us at email@example.com.

Looking forward to Mr. Robertson’s new book in the near future. Browse his blog and certainly check out his first book Eisenstein and the Audiovisual

Lynlee has contributed a new track entitled Beauty was Everywhere for Haze’s Sound Interpretation series dedicated to Virginia Woolf. This track consists of field recordings and a superb, rich reading by Una herself . Both of us are great admires of Woolf, so hopefully the track will inspire a few new readers to seek Woolf out, or motivate some old readers to dust off their copies of Mrs Dalloway . Here is a link to the Haze compilation. More Lynlee soon.

This is an incredible cinema house and also instrumental to the Utopia Film Festival. Regretfully,these landmarks are vanishing all over America, so let’s try to save a few while we still have the opportunity. I filmed this image last year during the Utopia Film Festival.
