dublab at LAIH

(Click for larger view.)

Mark (“Frosty”) McNeill gave us a great overview of the work of the dublab collective at last Friday’s LAIH luncheon. As I said in my introduction:

… dublab shows up as part of the DNA of many of the most engaging live events around the City (at MOCA, LACMA, Barnsdall, the Hammer, the Getty, the Natural History Museum, the Hollywood Bowl… and so on), and dublab is available in its core form as a radio project any time you like if you want to listen online.

[…] dublab is a “non-profit web radio collective devoted to the growth of  positive music, arts and culture.”

Frosty is a co-founder of dublab, and he told us a bit about its history, activities, and their new wonderful project called “Sound Share LA” which will be launching soon: They are creating a multimedia archive of Los Angeles based musicians (music, performances, venues, all sorts of associated materials) from all parts of the musical map that will be open to all online. Look out for it soon. (Frosty also curates the “Celsius Drop” mix at the station. I had a great time listening to the latest one while writing my intro in the wee hours.)

It was a really great luncheon, with all the core elements (besides food): – engaging speaker, topic, and engaged audience. The only down side was that several key LAIH regulars were unable to attend (many let me know how disappointed they were to have had to miss this one), and so attendance was not as strong as I’d have liked. But those who came had a great time and learned a lot. Thanks Mark for being generous with your time!
