MARINA HARDY: viola, violin, cello, rhythm guitar, slide guitar, various percussion (cymbols/snare, wind chimes, shaker) accordion/squeeze box, piano, oboe, claranet, baritone, French horn, flugelhorn. alto/tenor sax. sarrausophone, cornet. tooba. banjo, recorded crows, tape noises, occasional singing, bow over bass strings. viberaphone. glass bottles and mallets. thumb piano. vacume. kazoo. leave noises. controlled bird noises.
Besides all of the many misspellings which is fine, I am not a great speller either. there are some things that are weird. Like "recorded crows" and "controlled bird noises", what the fuck does that mean? I am pretty sure they sounded like uncontrolled bird noises to me.
Also, it says "various percussion (cymbols/snare, wind chimes, shaker)" when there is obviously a full drum set on "spanish".
I could go on and on forever. But i give up, I am positive that these recordings arent hers. except the shitty ones, she can have those.
I will give her that the "squeely" song maybe her trying to play violin or viola or something into her macbook.
but just cause its bad doesnt mean you can say its experimental and call it "art" cause it isnt, shes not doing anything except playing the instrument poorly.
whats the experiment? seeing if people will believe that you are a good musician by putting a bunch of old jazz recordings up and sprinkling a few shitty recordings in with it so you have an excuse to suck live?
also, I dont think she did those drawings on her art page, again, except the shitty ones (which arent really that bad but arent as technically good as the other ones)
if she doesn't show so proof of this being her actual music I am going to contact local show promoters and tell them not to book her.
or, she can delete all of the stuff that isnt her, and start trying to be an honest person and either learn how to play those instruments well, or learn how to write good songs. cause I dont think you need to be a great musician to write good music.

marina! i know you read this stuff!
stand up for yourself! i don't know you well enough to be like "i'm sure she does it all"...but if you do, you should post! these guys aren't totally dogging you, they just need to understand or whatever.
...and then laid down some of her own stuff with Ian Aeillo...
I was told about this post by a friend. I have had five or six people ask me when/how/where I recorded her and just wanted to clear things up. Only once did I record her. Sometime this summer, upstairs in the C room, she played trombone for the flowers forever album. I did not record any solo anything. She's a nice girl and from what I hear a pretty good viola player. I do not know if that is her work or not.

i watched her attempt to play cello once. it wasn't pretty. she didn't hold the bow right, nor bow the instrument properly. it sounded like 20 cats fighting in an alley that was being napalmed. seriously.
