Liveblogging! Commentary for “ITDE” 8/23/08

Well, tonight is the night– I’ll be playing the world broadcast premiere of John Cage’s “Twenty-six with Twenty-eight & Twenty-nine,” one of the latest Number pieces to be released by OgreOgress. And of course, I have a lot of other great stuff as well, which you can discover as we move along.

I’ve practically been living with the Hazard material this week– for reason, it’s completely floating my boat, and I don’t mind the fact that I’ve listened to this album so many times in a row. I hate to minimize it, but it’s great packing music– sounds good anywhere in the house, and I don’t miss out on too much while busy with something.

On the other hand, I’ve been back into the electroacoustic swing of things as well. Lots more odd combinations of electronics, processing, and live work on my plate than usual. Always a nice thing! I’m quite taken with this Peter Zummo and Tom Hamilton album, “Sylbersonic Trombone.” It’s not much to look at, but the disc has got it where it counts. It’s on Penumbra, maybe you’ll go pick up a copy for yourself…

Matt Weston’s newest, “Not To Be Taken Away,” is pretty good work. The tracks are really free, unabashedly immediate, and full of surprises. I’ll definitely be playing more from this one next week. See you then!
