A series of hour long live mix recordings, compositions and productions by Mac Dunlop. These broadcasts explore the knock on effects of sound layers within the evolution of sonic themes as they form.

A sound that feels like it is around all the time, a sound that compliments, a sound that is camouflaged inside everything else. Find out more at www.macspianolounge.blogspot.com.
