If its your own original music, you can play it loudly at center camp.

More details about my plan:

I have many mp3's stored on an iPod (which I plan to bring to Burning Man, so that part is covered). What I'm looking for is someone with a sound system capable of amplifying music very loudly in which I could plug in my iPod and play selections from my mp3 collection. If the sound system is installed on a vehicle, that would be even better as I could share my taste in music with even more people, very loudly.

Amplified music may be banned in 2012. Can you play a trumpet or bagpipes?

Honestly, if you have your Ipod on you and you stop by our camp, non of our DJs are playing, and no one else is really enjoying what is currently playing, we'd probably let you throw on some tunes.

What sorta music are we talking about?

Also, can't guarantee I'll be there, but if you ask anyone else in camp nicely, they might let you.

Hmm, this may present a problem. However, from reading articles about Burning Man, I've found that adaptability is a key component. With this in mind, perhaps I could take a cue from the recent Occupy protests and employ a "human microphone" technique, wherein I would listen to a song on my iPod using headphones so as not to violate the prohibition on amplified music, then sing the lyrics and make guitar and drum noises, which would then be repeated by the inevitably large crowd that has gathered around me. Then an even larger crowd just a bit farther away could hear this smaller crowd repeating the sounds coming from me and start dancing to it.

Next question: is there an art grant proposal form available for me to download?

I volunteer to help you make drum machine noises for "In the Air Tonight", guitar noises for "Sweet Child O' Mine", and Fiona Apple noises for "Criminal".

Thank you, Savannah. While I typically consider myself a solo artist, I will take your offer into consideration on account of the harsh, dry climate in the desert. If my throat becomes parched in the middle of a performance, it would be good to have an understudy. Making distorted guitar noises is rough on the larynx, even in humid climates. One question: are you proficient in the use of an iPod? Whether or not I have to resort to the "human microphone" technique, virtuosity with the iPod "wheel" is crucial to this art form, right up there with knowledge of the on/off switch.

Also, can you tell me more about "Fiona Apple noises?"

I must confess that clinical levels of euphoria--and an acute case of T-Rexia (colloquially known as "T-Rex Arms")--led me to select the inferior, instrumental version of "We Don't Need Another Hero" from Motskyroonmatick's iPod when we drove his rig onto the playa in 2010; the disappointment of which he has only recently recovered from, but I like to think that I have learned from my mistakes.

Also, can you tell me more about "Fiona Apple noises?"


No. :shock:

I've always considered the instrumental version of "We Don't Need Another Hero" to be the superior one (we're talking about the arrangement Vangelis did for the stage version of Beyond Thunderdome, right?), so I don't consider the incident you describe as a mistake. Welcome aboard.

Anyone playing amplified music has to possess a valid DJ licence issued by the State of Nevada, even if you are from California.

This has always been the law but up until now it has rarely been enforced, but the LEOs have heard that it is easier to find than someone smoking crack so I expect a big step up in enforcement this year.

Special endorsements will need to be added to your license if you plan on playing dubstep or anything else that starts with the prefix "dub".

Right. I forgot. I'll dig up the online form you must fill out, after the holidays.

What a coincidence! I have an mp3 player filled with music too! I need to find a rocking stage to beat out the fine tunes of 1950s commercial jingles!

Really!? So which camp are you at? Can I bring my iPod? Here's my "sorta" music for your sampling. I hope you and your camp mates approve. As a bonus, I can dance exactly the same way.
