Ahoy trashies, upcyclers, dumpster divers and what have you. A friend is collecting discarded playground rubber—you know, the kind of stuff under jungle gyms—for use lining the floors of his music studio. I am particularly invested in this project because a) it deals with trash and b) this friend is also my bandmate and this studio is also our rehearsal space. A noisy bakery recently opened up next door and sounds are leaking into our once sacred space. This unwanted sound must be absorbed! Diffused! Redirected! Eliminated! Got rubber? Know someone throwing it away? Is your local park redoing the kiddie area? Does your friendly neighborhood junk man have a stack of this stuff in the corner of his workspace? Let us know!
He’s also looking for celotex, homesote, old blankets or any other material that insulates and blocks sound.
PLEASE REPOST WIDELY. THIS IS A TRUE TEST OF THE TRASHIE NETWORK.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, the band is called Battle of the Camel. I play drums and we’re amazing.
