Superdoofus-Stratodrive posted III from Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band, and discussed in his inimitable fashion the authority with which Terry Riley made such music in the late 1960s: get ready for some groundbreaking music shit. back in ‘63, riley developed the “time lag accumulator”: a pair of tape recorders connected in series and perpetually regenerating the sounds played into the first machine (he’d been experimenting with tape loops for the decade prior). you’ve heard the sound bef

The Black Heart Procession -two-

The black heart procession " Two " Paesaggi sonori era una splendida trasmissione radiofonica di Radio 3 curata da Arturo Stalteri, che in un lontano passato mi ha coinvolto in una familiare compagnia per cumulative ore di cumulativi pomeridiani auscultativi.E fu per me anche una sorta di palestra di educazione musicale, iniziandomi infatti agli sperimentalisti americani, creando familiarità di orecchio e di ascolto con Philippe Glass e Terry Riley che ho adorato, con Steve Reich, con Pauline Ol

Welcome to the end of the weekend. I don’t have anything to write about, so instead I’ll show you a very quick video. A couple years ago I showed up at a birthday party with Ken and Z. I didn’t know anybody else there. I did not know the kid whose birthday it was. But, for some reason, I felt obligated to stand up during his birthday toast and say a few words about him. I don’t remember why, but I guess it was pretty funny. Anyway, here’s video footage of the short speech I gave (I’m not the

The South Asian Tinge in Jazz

Fri, 2008-11-21 01:36
The South Asian Tinge in Jazz Jelly Roll Morton, in an oft-quoted passage, once spoke about the “Latin tinge” that was, in his opinion, an essential ingredient of jazz. Although Morton has sometimes been derided, and is often treated with bemused disdain by later commentators, his remarks on jazz are typically quite astute. When talking about himself, Morton could be an unreliable source, but on almost every other subject, he needs to be taken seriously. His remarks on the Latin tinge are a cas

Female composers - 2

Thu, 2008-11-20 18:59
Now for a brief survey of piano music by some twentieth-century female composers. 1) Ruth Crawford Seeger (1901-1953) was an American composer whose early works were influenced by Scriabin and Schoenberg. Later she turned to folk music for inspiration and became actively interested in the preservation of US musical traditions. She was the mother of Peggy Seeger and stepmother to folksinger Pete. There is an interesting short biography on Peggy Seeger’s site. Here is one of her early moderni

Mais pop que chega do Norte

Hoje voltamos à Suécia. Para descobrir uma banda de Malmo (ou seja, músicos que vêm a Dinamarca da janela, como Sarah Palin vê a Rússia lá de casa). A banda apresenta-se como Fredrik, nada mais que o nome do seu vocalista. Gostam da vida na Suécia rural e da música de nomes como os Flaming Lips, Panda Bear, Terry Riley, Sufjan Stevens ou os Neutral Milk Hotel. Editaram este ano o seu álbum de estreia, Na Ni Na. E este 11 Years é o mais recente single dele extraído.

Kuestionnaire: Dan Deacon

Baltimore Electro-dance maniac Dan Deacon is not your average electronic artist. You won’t precisely understand what I mean until you witness one of his uplifting and truly unique live shows. What happens at these shows is a quasi-religious experience that celebrates our freedom of expression and the randomness of human nature. He brings on a new level of performance electronic music and is showing no signs of slowing down. Lately the man has been putting on the finishing touches to his next

Reflections in Zazou's 'Mirrors': Your Brain on Music or Your Music on Brain?How do you hear music? And don't be a wiseass and say, "With my ears." Seriously: What happens with you, an individual, as sounds work their way into your head, are processed through your brain, and interpreted through your experiences and sensibilities into that thing we call music? How do you make sense of things that might be unfamiliar, things from other cultures or from experimental approaches or even from glitches

Acid Mothers Temple: In C (2001) 0 votos 1 In C (20:31) 2 In E (16:30) 3 In D (19:47) Allmusic Review: Makoto Kawabata’s neo-hippie psychedelic cult, stripped down to only six members, offers up another fine album, two long tracks of extreme psychedelic brain-damaged sounds. The first cut is a rousing Krautrock version of the Terry Riley classic of minimalism, which lends itself perfectly to the Acid Mothers’ freakout-overdose sound. Basically, the band locks into a repetitiv

John Adams Tonight @ Politics and Prose

Wed, 2008-11-12 16:00
I have a hard time imagining that anybody who enjoyed Alex Ross‘ excellent history of 20th Century classical music, The Rest Is Noise, wouldn’t also get something out of Hallelujah Junction, the entertaining, occasionally punchy, memoirs of composer John Adams. The two books complement each other well—Ross forcefully argues that music history was a chaotic mix of ideas, not a straightforward march from Stravinsky to Serialism to Minimalism, and throughout his book Adams offers a similar defense
