Last night to the flicks. All war films. One very good one of a DJ attempting to bring a modicum of creativity to a disinterested, careless population inhabiting some sleepy town. Audience much amused by shots of this great fat man wallowing about in the ether, then you saw the gunsights…
Postscript: Today’s show went very well. Although I’ve taken shows through some strange territory before, I will admit that I was surprised to make it all the way from Arcane Device to a live field recording of downtown Carbondale, Illinois. My musical thoughts have been partly concerned with bringing the external inside lately, but it was only during the last few minutes of the broadcast that I got the idea to switch from streaming bird sounds to the live ones outdoors– mind you, I wasn’t certain I had a mic at the studio sensitive enough for the job– but I’m very happy with the end result. I think there is a germ for a future show in this experience; it will be interesting to see where this leads! Oddly enough, I found a Folkways birdsong LP this morning, at a yard sale following the show. I’m going to take that as some minor confirmation that I’m on the right track.
