A mysterious misterbuckets has been hard at work on a project called Elephant Mixtapes. He (or she) made ten copies of a mix and hid them around Chicago, hoping to surprise music lovers across the city. It’s finders keepers, but misterbuckets asks the finders to email Elephant Mixtapes with a photo of the tape, a description of where it was found, and any additional comments or reviews the finder might want to share.
Why bother? According to the project website:
Simple: I enjoy making mixtapes. Combine that with the pleasure of giving or happening upon a little gift is something everyone can enjoy. In addition, it will, hopefully, be interesting to see where these cassettes travel to and into whose hands they may land.
I know I’ll be checking back for contributions from around town.
