You're just taking a chance. I love to improvise, but in the context of what I know is solid. I used to jump away from what I had planned and just go totally insane. And two out of maybe four of those would work. But you just can't do that today.  0:15:48 (MP3 | )

It'll be happening here Wednesday 5-7pm Eastern Time!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:06pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It will be a gradual climb to a dense peak
  Wed. 8/30/17 5:08pm Bliss:

I saw a poster from far away, It pulled my attention to it, though I could not tell what it was about. I rode my bike over there to see it. It was a Tori Amos poster. I'd never heard of her. Bought the album with Cornflake girl on it. Amazed at first listen.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:09pm mossy lightouse:

Hello!! I am already quite astonished! Music, and sound overall, still expand beyond familiarity and explanation for how they become what and how they are!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I was a concert photographer. Her arrangement was that the photographers would show up before the show to a special room where she writhed around at a piano silently for 5 minutes. So, yes, image conscious person.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:14pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This Shining Star song was playing in a cooperatively run cafe recently
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:15pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Umm with lyrics and forward movement
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:16pm Carmichael:

What made me think that your previous show was your final one?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 5:16pm fred:

A guy I know did a series taking picture of performers before and after shows. If they looked the same, something was wrong
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:16pm Rich in Washington:

when Jerry passed away, I watched both Hardly Working and Slapstick of Another Kind, more or less at the same time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 5:17pm northguineahills:

The Saint-Saëns they play at the France movie at Epcot (well, at least in the 80s).
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:18pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Carmichael, very perceptive. Last week I played an actual last-ever (from 2005). It was really the end.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:18pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Primer, amazing $7000 DIY movie
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:19pm Rich in Washington:

The makers of Primer also made the amazing Upstream Color.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:20pm Rich in Washington:

I need to see Primer again. I enjoyed it, but it made my head hurt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:20pm Parq:

Huh huh. He said "Irwin's thingy".
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:20pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Upstream Color, amazing amazing. After it was over I just sat in the dark room for two hours thinking and feeling about it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:20pm Rich in Washington:

This is lovely, Kenzo.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'm going to try to start a conversation about each sample today. Blade Runner! I'm seeing a 4k restoration in a theater tomorrow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:21pm Rich in Washington:

I came into the middle of Upstream - my wife was already watching it - so she wanted to watch it over with me. It was like a loop. I think I need to see that one again too.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Jerry Lewis! Umm yeah he's gone. His self-direction skills were impressive.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:22pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Stone Roses, umm that was a really fun documentary even if they can't get their aspect ratios straight
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 5:23pm Stanley:

Just switched over. Hello.

Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:25pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

But the Microsoft loop, that's from the Regurgitation show from around 2002, borrowed a laptop and used the built-in sounds and maybe Media Player 6.4
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 5:25pm fred:

Was that the famous Mr Softee music? I've never heard it, but it seems to fit the description
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh yeah, I think I heard Mr. Softee in there
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:26pm listener james from westwood:

Hypnotic blend. Watts is coming in like a spell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:27pm Dave in Vermont:

hear
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:28pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh I like playing with volume sliders
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 5:29pm northguineahills:

I still don't miss the Mr. Softee jingle, give it another year and I'll wax nostalgic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 5:29pm Ike:

Yep, that was it. But you can't get the full effect until you listen to it blaring out of a speaker on every street in your neighborhood on a loop 634,928 times with no other sounds except traffic and maybe a few dumb screaming children while your own sweaty hands desperately grasp to jam the earbuds in deeper... deeper... to blot out the wretched, wretched repetition. And maybe the men in the white coats coming to drag you away.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

We're in a long moment with Other Shapes Are Possible from a year ago, with Primer added in...
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Little Murders: Best wedding scene ever
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 5:34pm fred:

@Ike: it did seem like hearing it on a loop could drive someone crazy. Mayuko reported seeing another fake truck a couple of weeks ago, with the same music
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:35pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Chasing Sleep, nice low budget
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

My So-Called Life, remixed more in "My So-Called Mind." I always appreciated the layered production
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Trying to remember who the atmospheric thing is, it's not Sigur Ros...

"The operations are a resounding success. But when someone starts killing his beautiful patients, Dr. Roberts becomes suspicious and starts investigating."

Hey, that movie! What's it called?
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:47pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

All the Crichton stories are ridiculous and full of holes but have great premises about the failure of technology

Let me tell you about my mother
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hmm, did Brian Eno make this Windows sound?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:52pm Rich in Washington:

He made one of them. I cannot remember which. Robert Fripp did sessions for another one, but I don't think they were used.

Now we're back in Conduct the Symphony of Your Life

First time this Bryan Adams song on WFMU
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:53pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

But not this Bryan Adams song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:53pm Rich in Washington:

Eno: Windows 95
Fripp: Windows Vista
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:54pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The Fripp Vista sessions were great to watch. Esp. the corporate nonsense talk about it.

Oh here comes the Joe Frank
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:55pm Rich in Washington:

Fripp/Vista: Yes. I loved that. The talkback was almost more engrossing than Fripp's soundscaping.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:56pm listener james from westwood:

Between Watts and Frank this is bringing back memories of sitting in my car listening to the last bits of their broadcasts on WFMU in the 90s, unable to leave without hearing the end.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So this is Joe Frank with Kate Bush
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I really ought to release video of the making of this one of these days
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

They didn't even use the Fripp music
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:59pm Rich in Washington:

Do it Kenzo! Do it all in one take, like Russian Ark!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:02pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So this is Lou Reed with Kate Bush
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 6:02pm listener james from westwood:

Oooh, I think I remember this Reed loop getting play in winter 2013. (Fucked up time for me; this show was actually a weekly touchstone of unreality amid hard reality back then.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 6:04pm listener james from westwood:

It's a great candidate for looping!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:04pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Well EVERYTHING is

So this is Joe Frank now from 1986 with Lou Reed back to the 2013 usage instead of the now

"A weekly touchstone of unreality amid hard reality" - I may quote that

I'm frazzled and weary, so, to use a phrase I loathe, "you might think" that overlappaloopamashacrashups wouldn't be the suitable sensory choice for me. But it DO be welcome and pleasant remedy like.

I had this Nina song stuck in my head all week after dreaming of it over the weekend
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I made a remix of this Young MC song for a recent dance I hosted. Took out the guy and just made it this sensual thing with the lady

Does anyone else find these sounds pleasing? It seems crazy that anyone would. Except I really do.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I mean this is a little irritating right now but I still like it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 6:40pm steve:

yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 6:41pm Santos L. Halper:

Crazy pleasing. Except maybe the nickleback
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 6:41pm Rand al'Thor:

I like the piano track in the backing right now. It's a nice mix with everything else.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:42pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

My second time trying that Nickelback out. It's harsh
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 6:42pm fred:

The Nickelback was a little too dominant. I know it's a first, but it could have used something else layered in
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:42pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I really want to remember what this piano piece is
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 6:42pm Gary:

You're right! I would have thought at least one WFMU DJ might have played Nickelback previously, but ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 6:42pm Rand al'Thor:

I think the last time you used that Nickelback track you kept changing its speed.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:43pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I think my first go at Nickelback was a little better but plenty irritating. It was mixed with Shania Twain (also Mutt Lange)
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:43pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Mmm MP3 artifacts. The archive version I'll post just before the show ends will be way better quality than this live stream.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:44pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Nickelback brings out the lurkers. Hi Santos and Gary!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:45pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Aha, Sergei Yevtushenko.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So this is Sergei Yevtushenko and Tori Amos and Shane Carruth from Primer

Feel free to use a clicky star on the episode, send me email at ken at lastever dot org, even use the unreliable and hardly future-proof Facebook platform: www.facebook.com... 'cause I'd love to hear from you
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 6:51pm fred:

I might skip next week's show: a whole week of meetings and occasional addresses by our Dear Leader will probably have my brain in hibernate mode after three days
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 6:52pm Rand al'Thor:

Thank you, as always, for the show, Ken.

Gonna listen back to what I missed in this episode once the archive hits.

Thanks Kenzo!

Thank you! It has been a wyrding, strengthening, redialing helpful show! I am very thankful to have heard and felt it. Enjoy your experiences with the film showing tomorrow!
Avatar Mon. 7/16/18 4:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yes, all that. Again.

Weird time warp of a playlist chat here!

Yup time for a new game.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:05pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

FYI the non-live "MP3 -192k" link sounds a lot better than the real-time "MP3 stream" link.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 5:05pm Rich in Washington:

I hope I am here now.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:06pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Rich, tell your future self something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 5:08pm Rich in Washington:

Future me... I'm sorry. I didn't know what I was doing, but I did my best with what I knew.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 5:11pm Rich in Washington:

Now that Jerry's gone, will we ever get to see The Day The Clown Cried?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 5:12pm Rich in Washington:

Jerry's seen things you people wouldn't believe.

It takes time for people to fall in love with you, but it's inevitable.

It's tempting to front-date these comments so they inter-thread within our live comments. Next time.

Painting the office is so meditative and stress free compared to working on a semi-annual report w/ last minute changes. I should change my vocation.

"bring your fish out" Hey, I'm not that type of man! (ok, maybe I am).
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

ngh, that's what you say every time
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:33pm Showshift Mary Wing:

Cool, NGH, what color are you painting the office? Deep red, maybe?
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:34pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So many layered shows of layered shows. A great one for half-naps.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:39pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

If you're using the higher-quality audio links (wfmu.org... or wfmu.org... ), you can seek ahead to where we are now: 39 mins 30 seconds

Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Wait, that's the Windows 95 startup sound (Eno?) mixed with what? Oh, another Windows 95 sound. I can almost place it.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Someone had loaned me their laptop because back in W95 you couldn't play multiple sounds at once, so I need multiple machines, and I used Media Player 6.4 and the built-in sounds.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:53pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh Winamp, what would I be without you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 5:54pm Rich in Washington:

The W95 sound brings me back to starting my workday when I worked on a PC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 5:54pm Rich in Washington:

I loved Winamp. It was my favorite audio player before I turned into a mac user.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:54pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I miss the After Dark screen savers
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 5:55pm Rich in Washington:

I think there is a rogue-built, unsupported Mac Winamp. I tried it a long time ago but can't remember why I didn't keep using it.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:55pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

There's a completely fantastic piano jazz piece that strings together Windows 95 sound effects.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 5:56pm Rich in Washington:

The screen savers for Winamp and even Windows Media Player were very trippy. Much more interesting than those made by Apple for iTunes.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Winamp visualizations, they were beyond. But so were a lot of VGA demos way back...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 5:57pm Rich in Washington:

I liked some of Robert Fripp's Windows Vista startup sounds. I think the sessions are online somewhere, complete with studio chatter.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 5:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(as we discussed above)
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 6:03pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Nothing is true anymore
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 6:07pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

What if the rule becomes that the only source material I can start with is the previous 600 shows? 'Cause this seems to work really well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 6:22pm Rich in Washington:

That windows sound keeps waking me up, even though I am awake. It's like when you hear YOUR alarm clock sound on TV or the radio.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 6:23pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I used my alarm clock sound as the room entry music for a dance I hosted
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 6:24pm Rich in Washington:

I'm listening on an all new sound setup today. New monitor speakers and a really bassy shelftop stereo system as its subwoofer across the room. It sounds really spacey.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 6:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(The 192k link I hope!) Float
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 6:25pm Rich in Washington:

My alarm clock is really old and it's got the sound which is also some kind of stock sound effect, so I would often hear it on TV, etc. The effect is really jarring on me, even now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 6:26pm Rich in Washington:

No! I SHOULD switch to the mp3 link, shouldn't I?
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 6:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I mean one of the archive links ("mp3 192k" and "pop-up player") vs the live links which are relatively crummy
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 6:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

fyi the "192 mp3" archive is 256k
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 6:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

We're up to 1:28:00 now
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 6:27pm Rich in Washington:

I just switched to the 'Download full MP3 link'.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 6:28pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

That one is good too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/18/18 6:28pm Rich in Washington:

Oh and I'll see how I feel about the Nickelback section this time.
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 6:38pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(see spirited opinions, way above)
Avatar Wed. 7/18/18 6:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yeah I agree with myself from last year, the Nickelback was more fun the time before when I pitch shifted it and brought in Shania Twain (all Mutt Lange)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/18/18 6:42pm northguineahills:

My move got busted unfortunately...

The Saint-Saëns they play at the France movie at Epcot (well, at least in the 80s).

thanks, Kenzo! Hope to be able to listen for real on Tuesday. Seems daunting with my current work load.

I'm not on Tuesdays anymore. Mondays 2-4pm ET on WTJU! And here, Wednesdays 5-7pm ET on WFMU's GTDR.
