Pop music, speeches, live phone calls and spontaneous monologues become ambient loopy layered threads riding the liminal spaces between waking and dreaming. (Visit homepage.)

Hi Fred! Yeah.. as in not working! Enjoying my home town in Summer style. ;)
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 5:34pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Welcome, Bas! I can't think of a better place than to talk about freedom in one of the greatest halls of freedom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 5:36pm northguineahills:

This sounds like a buddy comedy.....Someone cast it , George & Adolf!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 5:36pm fred:

I think I saw a dance show set to this Glass piece. Then again, they tend to all sound the same to me
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 5:36pm Bas NL:

War and peace have always been on the lips of just a view.

Ah, the hopeful segment as the end of this hour draws nearer
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 5:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Everybody dance! Like in a Philip Glass Buddy Comedy with every president and everyone who ever decided to vote for a president.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 5:40pm Bas NL:

It's Koyaanisqatsi by Philip Glass. I think they indeed did a dance to it. But it also goes with a great film.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 5:41pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

My 2003 playlist says "Sounds like hot dog music from Koyaanisqatsi"
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 5:41pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Presumably from the hot dog factory scene of my memory
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 5:42pm Bas NL:

Mow there's a clue! ;)
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 5:43pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hal Hartley, Hans Zimmer's Carl Orff knock-off, space suits
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 5:44pm fred:

If there was a dance show set to Koyaanisqatsi, I didn't see it, so it's just a case of Glass repeating himself
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 5:45pm Bas NL:

Serial musician..
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 5:47pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Fridge (my playlist says, "Blended Hans Zimmer piece into this, sort of Steve Reich-ifying it")
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 5:50pm fred:

Even in Lucinda Childs' case, I like Available Light (with John Adams) better than the more acclaimed Dance (with Glass)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 5:53pm Rich in Washington:

I love that all accordion Philip Glass cover album by What Capitalism Was.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 5:54pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Next half hour (2001: A War Odyssey) is a speedshift remix of this episode plus 2001 eeriness
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 5:56pm Bas NL:

Bring it on!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 5:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'm not waiting for the whole body evidence to come in

We can't handle the truth.
