Folk butterfly Emily Lacy recently completed a six week long residency called Myriad at Echo Park's Machine Project. Inspired by the idea of creating “an environment that would be pleasant to come down and play music in and that people could come join me and also play music,” Lacy set out to coordinate nightly jams, all of which have been edited and complied below.

“That was the jumping off point. Create music in the window, and simultaneously broadcast through the window and have a whole album that could be created in that space.”

Myriad, the eerie, beautiful dream like jam, is now complete and available for listening pleasure.

Ezra Buchla of the band Gowns — and formerly of the Mae Shi — makes frequent guest appearances, as well as many other local (freaky, folk) dignitaries.
