Extra

The Dollar Storeys project invited any/everyone to produce a short audio work inspired by one of three items purchased at a dollar store:
- ceramic mug sporting feisty feminist banter
- 4-pack of wooden mousetraps
- an old-school bicycle bell

The New Pleasant Revolution was inspired by the bicycle bell.

Comments

This makes me happy. I loved the balance of narration and street simulation. It's one of those pieces you laugh at and nod in agreement.
