|The McLean Mix|
Last week's issue of the Eastwick Press brought my attention to two very interesting Plateau neighbors: Barton and Priscilla McLean. The Eastwick Press article, Petersburgh Library Gets Grant For McLean Project, that talks about a Community Arts Grant that will be used for Petersburgh resident artists, Barton and Priscilla McLean, to produce a video "Peter's People: Working the Dream" about the community of creative and artistic people living and working in Petersburgh.
I was not familiar with Barton and Priscilla McLean or their work, but a bit of Internet searching quickly led me to the Barton and Priscilla McLean website. They, and their work (they perform under the name The McLean Mix) are fascinating. I suggest going through a number of the videos on them referenced on their home page. Priscilla has written an autobiography that sounds fascinating: Hanging Off the Edge. The video below provides a good sample of their electroacoustic music.
