Marie Martin’s wistful toy piano rendition of Peppina’s “Beastly Beauty” has been accepted into the Internet Archive! The song was original part of the Hitrecord project, and our involvement there allowed us to use it as part of a contact juggling clown performance. It’s now a permanent part of our repertoire, and a slightly more permanent part of history thanks to archive.org accepting the upload.
