Liveblogging! Commentary for “ITDE” 8/9/08

As Kleeer would say, “tonight’s the night.” Or the morning– whatever. Daniel Godston and Eric Glick Rieman are scheduled for a live set on the show, live from the Hi-Life Room. I’m pretty excited about this, and just hope it all goes well without any technical issues. I got into the studio a bit early, so I’m kicking off a three-and-a-half hour broadcast. Live sets are great, but I like playing albums too!

A hanger-on from Sweet Action had a very hard time believing Hong Chulki’s contribution to this show wasn’t the result of “porcelain.” Not sure what that means, exactly…

Still getting my end of the equipment set up. Three mics available, hopefully this will suffice. I’ve got to find some tape, so I can mark their channels now. It gets confusing! Here’s something from the Zelphabet series, off the “B” volume.

Dan Godston and Eric Glick Rieman have arrived– got lost a bit, and drove into Marion! They’re setting up now… there’s going to be a lot for me to reset around here after they pack up! No biggie, I’m more interested in the deconstructed Rhodes, which is VERY strange-looking.

WOW. Rieman and Godston have got one hell of a sound. We had a couple of avian guests arrive to fly around Godston’s head… I guess that covers their stated goal of working with “non-human animals,” eh? I ended up shooing them out with the help of some couch pillows, and they both made it safely back outdoors. Hope the photos turn out! We have an odd monitoring situation here at the station. They’re essentially forced to use a couple radios for monitors, and somewhat rely on the drift of sound outward from master control to help Godston know what Rieman is doing.

BTW, I learned I’ve been pronouncing his name wrong– Rieman is said “Ray-Man,” which I would have never guessed.

I have video, photos, and (hopefully) a decent audio recording of this session. I’ll be sharing all of this later on, but give me a couple days to relax before I tear into the various files. Until then, enjoy the next couple reviews– the secret is scheduling them ahead of time, haha.
