1. Project of the Day—The Oxford American features exceptional long form journalism and essays and is usually one of those things that we end up reading cover to cover without even meaning to. Every year they put together a music issue, last year was Tennessee, this year it’ll be an exploration of the sounds of Texas. Help make that happen.

  2. Project of the Day—Do you like prog rock? What about the band Yes? Probably if you answered yes to either of those questions, and especially if you answered “yes” to Yes (hahahahaha.) you’ll be interested in this project, which features that band’s own Jon Anderson in collaboration with violin virtuoso Jean-Luc Ponty. They, as you can tell by the picture above, are recording an album.

  4. There’s a pretty good chance that you are aware that “LP”—which is another way to describe a full album of music—stands for Long Player. Looking at today’s Project of the Day, though, makes us think we should maybe reconsider the definition of that term. Longplayer for Voices is continuing through its 1000 year long runtime, now transitioning to a 1000 minute piece for voices. Though a key part of Longplayer is how it adapts to changes in technology over time, this section of the piece will be entirely dependent on the good old fashioned human voice.
