Locally Toned TV Ringtones (Recorded Live at the Waffle Shop)

This is what I saw, looking from the stage at the audience and video crew last Friday night, July 9, 2010 while we recorded the Locally Toned TV show at the Waffle Shop.

Although getting the show “up and streaming” was rather tricky (due to some behind-the-scenes technical difficulties), the evening was delightfully magical. I promise to tell you more about the creative alchemy in future posts about the event, and you’ll also get to see photographs taken by Anna Lee-Fields, and video footage recorded by Carl Cimini and Caleb Foss.

A big part of the good karma that evening came from the audience–Locally Toned picked up three brand new “on the spot” ringtones from folks who dropped in to see the live show. How wonderful it was to open up the stage (and streaming webcast) to those simply moved in the moment to perform!

Since these tones were recorded “on the fly,” I didn’t have time to formally interview these contributors, but I was able to shoot photographs from my position in the HO(s)T seat. Here’s the short and sweet series I’m calling the Waffle Shop/Locally Toned TV Ringtones.

The first volunteer was local singer, songwriter and videographer, Ricardo Iamuuri. Here’s his beautiful Hand Harmonica Ringtone.

Next up was Christine “Scout” Smith–a “social worker, and fledgling [and brave, in my opinion!] concertina player.” This is her Fledgling Concertina Tone.

Our final ringtone contributor was Josephine Landback, a student and, if I read her handwriting correctly, also a cleaner in Pittsburgh. Josie performed a nice little Mouth Horn Ringtone for us. You’ll hear Waffle Shop ambience (the sound of clinking plates) in the background.

Thanks to Ricardo, Christine and Josephine for your inspired contributions to the project!
