What We’re Listening To

We set our lives to music like soundtracks to movies. Specific songs remind us of high school parties, playlists bring us back to various seasons of college, and that Billy Joel song will always call up memories of our middle school carpool. In the simplest terms, music is our auditory memory. ROCKET tells stories through […]
