April 22, 2012

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

“It’s Too Damn Early” is now… “Music For Swimmers”

April 15, 2012

With the move to the new 5-6pm show time, I realized that “It’s Too Damn Early” was no longer an appropriate name for my show. So, while my focus on experimental music, the avant-garde, sound art, and noise has not changed– the name has!

Say hello to “Music For Swimmers.”

I love picking out names for things. This time around, I looked to John Cage for inspiration, and found it in one of his many stories– in this case, one that was included on his Folkways recording with David Tudor, “Indeterminacy.” I’ve reproduced a screen capture from an online archive of the stories below, though I hope that you’ll check out the other stories as well. I’m not sure how the name works out if you think about it too hard, but I enjoyed the absurdity– a program of music for people who aren’t listening? Electrical devices in a marine environment? I suspect that “Music For Swimmers” will find its meaning with time. Until then, I’m looking forward to spending that time listening and staying afloat with you. –DaveX

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!

156 — Blasting
A Death Cinematic — When The Sun Settles Into the Horizon We Remember Our Rivers (from “The New World,” on Simple Box Construction)

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)

Lionel Marchetti — Natura Morta

Liveblogging! Playlist for “ITDE” 6/4/11

June 4, 2011

Once again, I’m in the Hi-Life Room a bit early, so I decided to play the first 30-minute cut off Arvo Zylo’s re-issue of “333.” This is one hell of a listen, I’m feeling a bit sorry for myself, having missed the initial cassette run. I’ll be getting back to this disc towards the end of today’s show.

Gotta say, I’m happy as hell to see a documentation of live Chefkirk/Ironing actions in the form of “Life in Florida 2010.” I dig the interplay between these two, and really enjoyed their earlier album together on Hymns. I won’t hold my breath, but I’ll throw out a “hail Mary” request– how about Chefkirk/Ironing meets Shelf Life for a Eh?/Hymns double disc. Get Bob Marsh and Hal McGee to co-narrate, omg I’m ruining these pants. But seriously, that would be awesome.

Speaking of awesome, I’m currently blowing Southern Illinoisian minds with some Government Alpha, from the “G” volume of Zelphabet. I’m still amazed at how much traction this series has, I’ve been able to listen to many of the discs over and over. This particular cut has the added benefit of masking the annoying ground loop hum coming from our studio monitors right now as well!

Arvo Zylo — Quicksand Eggs of a Beaten Pathos (from “333,” self-release)
Chefkirk, Ironing — May 13, 2010 @ Action Research #52 (from “Live in Florida 2010,” on Hymns)

Early example of noise art in literature!

January 5, 2011

This is the kind of stuff I absolutely love– a song (which basically amounts to a fun bit of dada/noise– comprised of Washington state town names. I found this in “Free Air,” by Sinclair Lewis. This was far too long for Twitter, but if you like this sort of thing, be sure to check out my “Litnoise” page.

“…Claire combined the town-names in a lyric so emotion-stirring that it ought, perhaps, to be the national anthem. It ran:

Humptulips, Tum Tum, Moclips, Yelm,
Satsop, Bucoda, Omak, Enumclaw,
Tillicum, Bossburg, Chettlo, Chattaroy,
Zillah, Selah, Cowiche, Keechelus,
Bluestem, Bluelight, Onion Creek, Sockeye,
