I’m starting this week’s broadcast with the “Dinner: Local Sidereal Stomp” portion of “27 New York Antisonnets,” which I reviewed earlier this week. I’m not really sure where I want to take this week’s show, so I guess this will give me a bit more time to figure it out, huh?
Whoops. Here’s the dangers of blogging while mentally adrift– mistaking the “post password” field for the “post slug” field… I went to view my post, and found that I had pass-protected it! Took me a minute to realize what I had done. Not yet 4:30 a.m., and I’m already useless, haha.
Okay, now I am playing from Edgetone Records’ generously-titled “Two Rooms of Uranium Inside 83 Markers: Conducted Improvisations Vol.II,” a disc of improv orchestral works featuring Moe! Staiano’s “Moe!kestra,” the only improv orchestra I know with punctuation within its name. Moe!, you’re killing my spell-checker, just thought I’d let you know. For all you lovely , do have some fun with the stereo field on this recording– one room’s orchestra is featured in the right speaker, the other is in the left. As my hometown ice cream shop used to say: “try one or two or both!”Luckily for you, this is not Moe!’s attempt at combining butterscotch and mint flavors, yuck.
Today’s show is shaping up to be one of those broadcasts where I play six long cuts, it seems. I guess I’m just in the mood for longer works, and less transitions– I’ve got everything falling more or less neatly on the half-hour marks.
Yep, I’m definitely in long-form land– spent 20 minutes with the Lona Records release of Alok’s disc “C,” and now seriously considering an hour’s worth of The Transhumans. It’s really the least I can do, seeing as how I forgot the “Into the Maelstrom” disc last week. I’ve about 45 minutes to go with it yet, looks like the plan for now. I really want you to hear this disc! Of course, this only takes us through parts one and two– I’ll leave part three between you and pfMentum’s staff of highly trained, crushed velvet-uniformed sales enthusiasts. (At least this is how I imagine it could be.)
I’m going to finish off with at least a couple cuts from an early Roil Noise release, the first Roil Noise Offensive sampler. Rubbish definitely has his own ‘take’ on noise– raw, brutal, and immediate. Although he and label co-captain Noah (Rabbit Girls) have collaborated together, its separately that they do the most damage– Rubbish with the trash-can percussion, Rabbit Girls on spastic digital cut-ups– a bit like the noise version of the Odd Couple, really!
I’m going to try to get this broadcast available for download today, but if I spaz out, please check back soon– it will be here! Thanks for listening, I hope you enjoyed the show. –DaveX
Update: I got some sleep, though it was somewhat marred by a nightmare where a white octopus/snake/frog creature came out of my curtains and attacked me. Nevertheless, I have managed to get today’s episode available for download. As always, I encourage you to seek out and support the labels and artists played on “ITDE”. If you don’t, I’ll send the octo-snake-frog to get you. Also, ignore the fact that I got the month wrong in the file name– I didn’t get that much sleep.
