In the Spring of 2005, dozens of local and nationally recognized musicians began gathering in R. Buckminster Fuller’s acoustically unique dome home to record music inspired by Fuller''s life. The fruits of their collaboration, "Roam Home to a Dome a Benefit Compilation" , has been released.
Unlike many "intellectuals," R. Buckminster Fuller lived in a world of people, places, things and action rather than the antiseptic sanctuary of the "mind." Mr. Fuller was a thinker no doubt. But as he liked to say, he did it "out loud." As artists we''d like to show our appreciation to him for changing how we think. With this album we do it OUT LOUD.
Bucky''s little dome serves as a constant reminder to the people of this area that he was here and he IS important. In order to help preserve his memory at least to the residents and transients of this sleepy little college town, musical artists from all over the country came together, wrote and/or performed songs inspired by the life and works of R. Buckminster Fuller. I had the privilege of recording them inside the only little dome that Bucky ever called home. I''m grateful for that --Mike Lescelius
A great many talented people have passed through Bucky’s Dome during the course of these recordings. The project quickly took on a spirit of its own through the sense of purpose and energy the artists brought to the space. This album of audio documents that spirit. It stands as the strong witness of support for Mr. Fuller''s home we intended it to be. Not only by many of our best local artists but nationally and internationally recognized artists as well. All of them volunteering their time and talents, traveling at their own expense. I encourage you to take their lead, to look into Mr. Fuller''s works and continue to support them at Bucky''s Dome Home in Carbondale., Stephen Gariep,"daddyg" the Camp Festus Radio Hour WDBX Community Radio, Carbondale 91.1 FM https://www.tradebit.com
