Update #3

We have reached our Goal!

1 comment

Actually we have gone past our goal!!!  Thank you all so much on behalf of the Airlift, Swoon, our inventors and our musicians!  

At the risk of being presumptuous, we would also like to thank you on behalf of the city of New Orleans.  This place where we live is so beautiful, so unique, so magical. In turns, it is so tragic, so heartbreaking, so terribly rough on the soul. 

We truly believe that our Musical Architecture is going to be a source of pride and wonder for our city for years to come. The Dithyrambalina is a deep embrace of all that is wonderful in New Orleans. Right now it is hugging you and thanking your for your support.  Can you feel our love?
