Due to having some guests over to the Hi-Life Room, (a story you will really enjoy reading) I did not liveblog the show this week. Also, because of technical problems, I was unable to make a complete recording of this week’s show– I apologize for this!
However, I did record this week’s fantastic improvisational section, which I will tell you about:
Around 5 a.m., I started the improvisation portion of the show, utilizing the Simultaneous Translator. I let the airwaves go silent, and allowed the mutiple streams enough time to become silent as well. Then I slowly built up a massive wall of drone. The Simultaneous Translator worked wonderfully! I was able to bring in 4 instances of WDBX’s netcast, each of which now had it’s own independent volume and effects. With three CD players and a cassette deck, I was able to make quite a thick sound.
I recorded everything to cassette, direct from the board. I also let three microcassette recorders capture the sound as I heard it live in the Hi-Life Room. My intention is to combine these recordings with the direct recording to create a master mix. Exactly how things will be combined is still a bit up in the air, but you’ll have a chance to hear it soon. I am extremely pleased with the results– I am really blown away with how terrific it sounds.
Here is the playlist for the show. Because of the layered nature of the drone improv, I am not certain of the order of materials used during this section.
