More Seattle

Wow. I've been slacking. I checked out the Experience Music Project one morning. I think that this would be the kind of place to go to with friends so you can be silly and make music in the sound labs. There is a sculpture made out of instruments that actually plays.

But the building itself is something that you not only can't miss but also a must see. The colossal building, designed by Frank Ghery, sits adjacent to the space needle at the Seattle Center. It contains mostly rock memorabilia, mainly Jimi Hendrix, but not limited to other local area musicians like those of the Grunge wave and an impressive exhibit of the evolution of the electric guitar.

appropriately enough, it being a memorial to rock music and all, the design of the building is meant to resemble a smashed guitar.

what do you think??
