A Mutable Exclusive


| | $ |


John Manson of Neptune and Magic People fame, and Dan Madri, who played with John in The Gondoliers, became involved 4 years ago in a project at the Aviary gallery in Boston, where musicians and artists created a piece a day for the month of January, ending in a gallery show. The project was called Fun-A-Day. (Or FAD.) And now, 4 years later, John and Dan are continuing this tradition under the title Song-A-Day or SAD. Fun fact: the names of all the songs in this collection come from LFL team names.


Over the course of the coming weeks and months, the raw wonders they have produced will tickle at your ears and haunt your imaginings long after the audio’s cut short and the accompanying films have cut to black. For here at Mutable, we will be posting them regularly for your viewing and listening pleasure. Enjoy!

Mutable Sound of the Month

| | $ |

Mutable Sound is pleased to present a different unique musical experience every month. Each month we will bring you a different free download of an experimental one-off, by ourselves, or someone perhaps living in your very neighborhood! These are discoveries from the reel-to-reels and tascams of the garages and basements of the world, but also studio jobs make us feel things perhaps we wished we hadn’t, songs that stand on their own and songs that embody the spirit of mutability, songs we want you to cherish even though each is but a lonely single track.

As always, if you have a particular track you think would fit these criteria, just send a link to the song, credits, and a brief description to

Manifesto of the Month

| | $ |


For the past few months you may have noticed the occasional manifesto popping up for you to peruse. “Why,” you may have asked. The why is this.

We here at Mutable have believed in the art of the manifesto from before there was a Mutable to speak of. We taught a course at the Berwick Research Institute on manifesto-writing back in the summer of 2002, and have been soliciting people to write manifestos ever since. Our first book was Manifesto I, a collection of the manifestos were written as a result of our expertise in nagging.

All of this has evolved into the Manifesto of the Month. On the first sunday of every month we publish a manifesto discovered in the wonderful world of the interweb. Click on the link below to see the results of our ongoing efforts.

Bedroom Theater

| | $ |


It began when my roommate changed the light bulb in my bedroom. It ended in a five-hour crying spree in the Nevada desert, but will also never be over for me. Bedroom Theater is a productionless event in which there is no audience, only people performing for each other, for the sheer pleasure of performing, and I have resuscitated it here in Chicago for the simple reason that I am lonely and want to slather my loneliness on others.
