For Your Listening Pleasure
The aural soundscape at 51 Sussex is
just as vital as our lush green landscape. So we go extra lengths to make
it a pleasurable experience for all. Here's the lowdown on the sound
- The stereo is
located in the closet by the back door of the front house.
It includes the stereo tuner/receiver and two CD players.
When playing CDs, use the bottom, 5-disk deck; the one
built into the receiver is defective.
- To the left of
the stereo is a dial that switches the sound to entirely
inside the front house (setting #1), just the outdoor pool
area (setting #2), or both (setting #1 & #2). Please
take note of where the dial is set - particularly late at
night - as no one wants to be jolted out of bed at 3 am by
a very loud "EVERYBODY DANCE NOW!!"
- There is a range
of CDs kept by the stereo, mixed and produced by our one
and only Dirk, capturing all types of moods (if you have
any requests you'd like him to compile, please do!). Plus
you are welcome to bring your own. Just be sure if
there are others around that they are in-sync with your
traveled to the darkest jungles of the rain forests, the
highest mountains of Tibet, and the deepest parts of the
inner city to compile the most compelling range of exotic
rhythms, chants, and ...oh hell, who am I kidding? I
listen to the radio like everyone else and slap together
