If you haven’t already, check out the website for the Experience Music Project in Seattle. It’s a well-designed site with all sorts of interesting information about music. You can learn about songwriting, tour preparations, audio technology, artist history and so on through stories, links and video or audio clips. It provides a bit of insight into what is happening inside that big blob at the base of the Space Needle.
