Liveblogging! Commentary for “ITDE” 3/22/08

UPDATE: My slackin’ ass finally got this broadcast uploaded as a single mp3 file. Holy Church of the Subgenius, Batman! As always, support your favorite artists and labels with actual cash money– just because I got it free doesn’t mean you can, haha.

Co-hosting this morning’s broadcast with me is my daughter, DJ Mo. I started off with Frank Rothkamm’s amazing new release, “Just 3 Organs,” a hypernumerally-obsessed series of mind-bending compositions frightening not only for their mathematical bent, but the strikingly natural way Rothkamm approaches this sort of layering.

I’ve now moved on to Vanessa Rossetto’s album “Misafridal,” on her Music Appreciation imprint. I’m playing the track “Eohippus,” which I’m dedicating to The Digital Cuttlefish, and his wonderful poem about last night’s ultra-ironic flap over PZ Myers being expelled from “Expelled.”

“So this little movie trip is
Like a Trojan Eohippus
That delivered Richard Dawkins deep within the fortress walls”
(full poem here)

How about some Arcane Device? This track is part of the first Zelphabet compilation, being a remix of original and unreleased David Lee Myers recordings made from 1987 to 1993.

I’m taking the hour from 5 to 6 a.m. to play from Annea Lockwood’s superlative 3-disc treasure “A Sound Map of the Danube.” This is already among my most highly-regarded works, and I’m sure that many of you will enjoy it as well. This is a perfect example of needing to hear something in its original, lossless format. I’m afraid radio will not totally render the incredible sound quality of these discs. And hey– my new headphones are paying off big time with these recordings!!

I thought I’d play this live recording of the KBD Sonic Cooperative, from their recent release on Eh? Records, “Four Plus One.” In a show filled with longer cuts, who will mind one more? Besides, I’m always happy to put more no-input mixer into the aether!

I’ll have this show available as a download a little later on today, providing my program didn’t crap out on me. If you’re lucky, I’ll upload last week’s broadcast too! It’s a killer set, so don’t miss it.

    Hey, KBD. Sweet! Those guys are from neck of the woods. How did you come to own their album?

  2. Rothkamm - “Just 3 Organs” « Startling Moniker Says:

    […] In an earlier playlist, I described “Just 3 Organs” as “hypernumerally-obsessed,” which is true… due to my general ineptitude with mathematics, I’ll let Rothkamm show you why: […]
