Liveblogging while I cover a show…

March 26, 2013

I’m covering for another DJ today, so I quickly packed a bag and heading in to the station. I’ve got a fairly large amount of music with me, so this should be a fun time! Just for formatting kicks, I’ll insert the playlist between thoughts…

Coin Gutter — Timewise (from “All Your Dreams Are Meaningless,” on NoType)
My Fun — Black Sky (from “Idyll EP” on Test Tube

I figured out an interesting little “jog” technique using our CD players, quite by accident. I was not aware that you could trick it into staying put in active mode on a single frame of the disc– so I opened the Insect Ark cut with a little jog improv, which sounded great.

Insect Ark — Lift Off
Pierre-Andre Arcand — Paradoxal (from “Atlas Epileptic,” on Ambiances Magnetiques)

I noticed that the “Dj Trios” disc featured a track recorded at Bard College, whose “Office of Student Life Programming” assisted with putting on the original concert. Seems fun that we are now the unintended beneficiaries of their effort– thanks Bard College!

Christian Marclay, Toshio Kajiwara, Marina Rosenfeld — Annandale-on-Hudson, November 19, 2003 (from “DJ Trios,” on Asphodel)
Felix Lachance — Manege I (from “Cache 2009,” on CEC)

Jeez. Only when dealing with experimental music will a DJ find himself describing the Greek root words for “behind” and “anus” in relation to a family of fish. Luckily, the music is worth it. Hope you’re enjoying this!

Christoph Erb, Jim Baker, Michael Zerang — Opisthoproctidae (from “Erb, Baker, Zerang” on Veto Records)
Psychotic Quartet — We Are All 11 or 26 Dimensions (from “Sphaleron,” on Eh?)

Whew! Feeling tired tonight. As much as I enjoy filling in, I’m definitely going to enjoy getting back home. Plus, I won’t have Tom Selleck staring at me. I was using a pirate flag here at the station as a curtain between the master studio and my office, which has a big window (it used to be a studio as well). As near as I can tell, someone mistook the Jolly Roger for Old Scratch, prompting a quick switch on my part. In a pinch, Tom Selleck– via his “Mr. Baseball” days– made a decent substitution in movie poster form; his ample arm hair, twinkling eyes and thick mustache surely no match for anything cloven-hoofed. But now he stares at me, happily brandishing his ball bat. I’m not sure if we’re any better off.

Ministry of Rites — Embers (from “Grid,” on Edgetone)
CJ Borosque, Robert M. — Beautiful (from “Beautiful,” on Edgetone)

“Music For Swimmers,” liveblog and playlist for 9/16/12

September 16, 2012

It’s been a little while since I posted on STARTLING MONIKER. I’m sorry about that, and hope that you haven’t lost all hope for this blog– I am still very much interested in experimental music, making awesome radio shows, and writing about all my sound-related ideas. I just haven’t had a lot of time! In the past few months, I have managed to get back into school in order to finish my undergraduate degree. Making this transition has been time-consuming, but I’m figuring it out. With luck, I’ll be looking into grad school in a little over a year from now.

Izanami’s Labour Pains — Explaining Reason To An Uninvolved Stranger (from “Destination: Toujinbou,” on Small Doses/Phage Tapes)
Ross Adams, Ed Handley — Oil (from “Nord Rute,” part of the “Compass Series” on Gruenrekorder)
Jurica — Notebook Drawings (from “Distant Memories,” on Alrealon)
Jurica — Seaside Sketches
Ross Adams — Nord Rute

Liveblogging! “Music For Swimmers” 7/22/12

July 22, 2012

Playing some cool tapes today, along with some older stuff that I’ve been digging recently. I’m trying out blogging from my phone as well– seems more of a pain in the neck than anything, but might be interesting for less text-heavy posts. I hope you enjoy today’s show! Just as a reminder, you can catch “Music For Swimmers” (formerly “It’s Too Damn Early”) at its nice new broadcast time every Sunday afternoon from 5-6 p.m., CST.

Head Boggle — Plaid Days (this, and next two, from “Modern Language #1″ on Snapped In Half Tapes)
Pulse Emitter — Bucolic Vortex
Carlos Giffoni — Pulpo
Ophibre — Untitled 1 (from “Basil Forests,” on Digitales Limited)

Liveblogging! “Music For Swimmers,” 6/16/12

June 17, 2012

I decided to play older stuff today– not necessarily in relation to its release date, but “older” in terms of when I last played it. I don’t think I’ve played any of these since 2005 at the latest, and it’s possible that one or two never made it on the show at all, but were just present in the mix happening behind-the-scenes. Wouldn’t that be fascinating by the way? To hear a mix of all the things I didn’t necessarily air, but that influenced what I did broadcast. I’d sure love to hear that! By the way, just a heads-up– the next episode of “Sounds Like Radio” is going to be kick-ass. I’m really getting the feel of that show lately, and I’m excited about this particular episode. be sure to tune in tomorrow and check it out.

Mira Calix – Routine (The Dancing Bear) (from “One On One,” on Warp Records)
John Oswald — O Hell (from “Plunderphonic,” on Mystery Tape Laboratory)
David Tudor — Rainforest Version I (from “Rainforest,” on Mode)
Zoviet France — Alchemagenta (from “Digilogue,” on Soleilmoon)
René Lussier, Martin Tétreault — Tellure (from “Qu’ouïs’je?” on Ambiances Magnetiques)
René Lussier, Martin Tétreault — Aventure
René Lussier, Martin Tétreault — Faufilure

Liveblogging! “Music For Swimmers” 6/9/12

June 10, 2012

Well, I just got done being interviewed for Emma’s “Pony Party 2012″ edition of Style City, where we discussed “Friendship Is Magic,” favorite ponies, pony songs, etc. A pretty cool show, but a bit of a jumbled mess moving from one show to the other. Fortunately, I’ve got Pilesar’s “Radio Friendly” album from Public Eyesore to help me transition!

Jean-Marc Montera, Francesco Calandrino — Untitled #3 (from “Idi di Marzo,” on Eh?)
Pilesar — Slipping On Eggs On the Floor (from “Radio Friendly,” on Public Eyesore)
Pilesar — Hit The Door
Pilesar — My Friend Sunshine
Pilesar — Slight Case of Clown
Jacob Felix Heule, Bryce Beverlin II — Live at Art of This, Minneapolis, 8/3/10 (from “Intersects,” on Eh?)
Jean-Marc Montera, Francesco Calandrino — Untitled #4

“Style City” and “Music For Swimmers” playlists for 4/29/12

April 29, 2012

I’m covering for “Style City” today, which is kinda fun, seeing as how my own “Music For Swimmers” begins directly afterwards.

The BIG NEWS of the day, however, is that the WDBX Pledge Drive is OVER! Ms. Bags (a fan of “Style City”) agreed to meet the remainder of WDBX’s pledge drive goal of $13,000 singlehandedly, as an act of support for Style City’s Friendly Badger Group! If you’re confused, here’s the takeaway– that’s a pledge in the $2,000 range, and an amazing show of support for community radio here in Southern Illinois!

Liveblogging! “Music for Swimmers” 4/15/12

April 15, 2012

Today was the first episode of my show in it’s new 5-6pm Sunday time slot– I think it went very well! I’m used to having a lot more space to stretch out in, so this was different, but fun. Earlier, I compared the experience to working as a short order cook after spending a long time working entirely with crock pots. My special “no interruptions” arrangement with the station manager lets me avoid playing any promos or underwriting during my show, which definitely helps. I also did a lot more quick transitions than usual– I won’t do this for every show, but I wanted to kick things off with some improv mixing and collage. It felt right. Ordinarily, I intend to stick by my “no excerpts” rule, which may prove interesting in terms of focus during a one-hour show. There’s definitely a lot less room for error, though; I believe this may be an interesting challenge. If you heard today’s show, leave a comment and tell me what you thought. I’m curious how things went on your end. –DaveX

March 31, 2012

Before you go any further, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of “Closed Encounters of the 4 Minds,” on Public Eyesore. I’m really quite taken with this one– some of the old-school electronic sounds just leap out at you, and it doesn’t hurt that the 4th track is ridiculously catchy. The album hasn’t left my stereo since it arrived, so you’ve been warned. Don’t sleep on it!

Liveblogging! “It’s Too Damn Early,” 2/18/12

February 18, 2012

It’s freakin’ Promo City over here, so next week is going to be awesome! I’m staring down new stuff from Tom Hamilton, idM TheftAble, and if, Bwana; not to mention a couple new ones from the Pogus label as well– Noah Creshevsky, Leo Kupper… goddamn, these guys know what moves me! If that wasn’t good enough, there’s also new stuff from the Cuneiform and Abzu labels, and a couple self-releases from brand-new folks– it’s always good to hear from new people, keep ‘em coming!

I’m definitely looking forward to playing this Davis Redford Triad LP, “The Mystical Path of the Number Eighty-Six,” a Holy Mountain release that probably won’t make many journeys out of my home in the future. I hope you’re listening! (And hey, a big thanks to Lou’s Records in Encinitas, CA for helping me find this one!)

OMG, can’t believe I forgot (I told you this was a good night!) but I’ve also got two new LPs from ZeroMoon, whose “intelligent noise music” has always rung true to my ears– Blue Sausage Infant’s “Negative Space,” and “District of Noise Vol. 4,” which features Washington D.C. area noise artists. I won’t have time for both on today’s program, but you’ll definitely hear each over the next few weeks, most likely on both programs.

Lastly, The Claudia Quintet (with Theo Bleckmann) will be in St. Louis for a New Music Circle event on March 2nd at the 560 Music Center Ballroom. I’ll have some free tickets to giveaway next week, so make plans to listen in– maybe they’ll be yours!

Liveblogging! “It’s Too Damn Style” 1/22/12

January 22, 2012

I’m covering for “Style City” today, so it’s feeling a bit bright and sunny in the studio– even with all these horrid grey skies! I imagine that will make today’s show a bit different than usual. Another big influence on today’s programming will be the presence of the brand-spanking-new “L” volume of GX Jupitter-Larsen’s “Zelphabet” series. As any reader/listener of mine will know, I’m a big fan. In addition to being an incredible source for noise lovers to discover overlooked or under-promoted musicians, the quality of the contributions has been consistently high– compilations might be a dime a dozen, but there are precious few (especially of this scope) that would honestly elicit such description.

Eric Glick-Rieman — The Past, Aerated (from “In My Mind, her Image Was Reversed,” on Accretions)
Toshio Kajiwara, Marina Rosenfeld, Christian Marclay — New York, 8/21/03 (from “DJ Trio,” on Asphodel)

Whew! I’m kind of tired out this morning. I was happy to take a few nice calls, though– it’s always nice to hear from listeners. Next week is the 10th anniversary of “It’s Too Damn Early” airing on WDBX-FM, so I’m pretty excited about that. Although I don’t have an exact count personally, this is about 500 shows! Seems like a fair number– I’ve missed some, but I’ve also covered a bunch. At any rate, it’s been a lot of fun, and I know I’ve had a great time learning about experimental music (as well as sharing it with you).

Okay, so it looks like Kendra Steiner Editions is getting added to my short list of favorite labels. How did I miss this for so long? I must be slipping. Folks, you need to hold me to a higher standard! But seriously, the latest addition is #214, so I have a lot to fill in. My birthday is in April, please give generously, haha.

Also, Dolphin Logic’s EP is almost out on Tundra Dubs. Listen in next week, and I’ll play some more of it. You gotta love an album with a track named “Wet Goddess.”
