barn-based sound station.
constructed in 1981 by leroy as an offering to his foreverlove amina. (leroy's dedication to amina is etched in our floor - punctuated by cupid's arrow.
his timeless expression of devotion allows us to begin each day in the giving of thanks - with the surety of harmonic mission, knowing we operate within a space literally built from the heart.
leroy commemorates the 1981 completion of
phase 1 of skylab91103
phase 2 reinforcement added by michael in 1987
the big board.
we holistically restored the barn's original ontological intent,
abstracting the space into a bounce-receiving satellite...a portal built on a foundation etched in the heart's devotion,
...as leroy originally intended.
skylab91103 opens with matins every day at 5:30 AM in pursuit of its 2-part mission:
1) to honor the timeless, transformative power of analog - by creating within analog's airspace.
2) to counter attempts by anti-bounce forces to pathologically divide and partition music into genre.
skylab91103 chooses to study, trace and celebrate the timeless bounce-generated connections that bind across all music both good and great. the bounce does not believe in musical division. for 1ness aligns a singular truth:
all good + great music is connected by the 1ness of the bounce.
interwoven in 1ness.
regardless of genre, family history, geographic location, technical ability, or budget.
(indeed...one of the biggest sins against the bounce is to sound expensive.)
the barn has but 1 rule:
all signal paths must be steeped in pre-1981 technology.
