Trash Orchestra PSA
by DJ D-Rail
Saturday Dec 23rd, 2006 9:19 AM
Using recycled food cans, hubcaps, barrels, sheet metal, and other discarded oddities, the Santa Cruz Trash Orchestra is a bone-shaking, recycled ensemble – a marching percussion band - who show up invited or otherwise, to make a cacophony of noise and celebration at parties and protests. Trash Orchestra players held an instrument building workshop as a Free Skool class in early December, 2006. DJ D. Rail attended, and brings us this sound collage, which attempts to make sense of the discordant noise, and mystery of the Santa Cruz Trash Orchestra.
9 minutes
That sound collage was produced by DJ D-Rail. The Santa Cruz Trash Orchestra practices every other Sunday, from 3pm to 6pm at the River St Parking Garage. Visit, for contact information.
