Lop-Off Sessions are a series of one-day, site-specific performances organized by Maitejosune Urrechaga & Tony Kapel of Pocket of Lollipops. The rock duo will present an all female line-up for the event, their first Lop-Off Session in Broward County.
The all female line up of local bands and musicians will record one song each on location at the Pink Noise: Flexing the Frequency exhibition in the galleries of Girls’ Club. These songs will then be made available as a compilation. Each band will have up to 30 minutes to knock out the song. The public is invited to watch on as an audience, respectful of the sound recordings taking place.
The objective of these Lop-Off Sessions is to show working musicians and the measures it takes capture a song.
Amid the backdrop of the exhibition Pink Noise: Flexing the Frequency, the audience is given a behind the scenes glimpse of the recording process – the set up, the tuning, the rehearsing, the capturing of a single musical work – a performance usually restricted to a trusted few.
“The audience will be watching what it takes for musicians to set-up, and capture a song. And also witness the stress, the anxiety or complete calm. Basically witnessing each musician’s approach to the task. So the acts are not really performing a show – just coming in and doing the track – some need the complete 30 minutes – some do 1st takes.”
– Tony Kapel
These sessions are then made available to audiences for sale on location and at partnering locations in a limited edition vinyl album set, as a CD set and digitally through Houndstooth Cottage., a recording/publishing house, and host of semi-private music and art events.
