Antonia Tricarico "The Inner Ear Of Don Zientara" - Book

In the late 1970s, Don Zientara - a conscientious objector to the Vietnam War - founded Inner Ear Studio in the basement of his home in Arlington, VA, using the electronics training he received from the army. Composed by photographer Antonia Tricarico, "The Inner Ear Of Don Zientara" is an oral history of not just Inner Ear's recordings, but the role that Don played in creating one of the most welcoming and nurturing recording studios the world over. Alongside 250 photographs, this volume includes testimonials from members of Fugazi, Scream, Fire Party, Shudder To Think, Jawbox, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Dismemberment Plan, as well as musicians like Kathleen Hanna and Henry Rollins, among other notables.
