Artist Track Album Label Comments Special
 
Set 1: experimentally quiet. (Listen to this set: )
Stephen Vitiello  4 (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Listening To Donald Judd  Sub Rosa  Fairly spare & quiet, high tone -> almost sounds like an electronic bird.   
Phill Niblock  Alto Tune (CD 3, track 2) (Listen: )   Options Touch Three  Touch  Treated alto sax, graaadually building softly harmonic tone, gradually shifting, some deeper alto sax tones come in under & piece becomes close to transcendent at times.  ***  
Tom Recchion  Underwater Girls (track 6) (Listen: )   Options Sweetly Doing Nothing  Schoolmap  Mysterious & avanty (whatever that means, exactly), warm, orchestral, nice at low volume, it builds gradually and gently, relaxing.   
Nadja  Thaumogenesis (track 1) (Listen: )   Options Thaumogenesis  Archive  We hear the last 13:50 of this 1 hour-long track. The excerpt we hear starts very nice & quiet, and gradually builds to a crescendo.   
 
 
Mic break between Sets 1 & 2. Background music played during it: (Listen to this set: )
Biosphere  Moistened And Dried (track 8)   Options Cirque  Touch  Very quiet & airy, kind of like being at the bottom of a well.  ***  
 
 
Set 2: the old radio show portion of the evening. (Listen to this set: )
Mystery In The Air  The Black Cat   Options (No album)  (No label)  Mystery In The Air...a 1947 summer replacement series of only 8 episodes, all of which survive. It offered dramatizations of stories from World Literature, and all starred Peter Lorre. Shows were of exceptionally high quality, and often had something of a dark and hallucinatory feel. This episode: Peter Lorre obsesses over, yes, a black cat ("that beast - it's come back to haunt me!!!"), a dead wife, and has a bunch of mad moments, including yet another fine mad scene at the end. And it was all done live. Originally aired September 18, 1947.  ***  
 
 
Mic break between Sets 2 & 3. Background music played during it: (Listen to this set: )
Biosphere  Moistened And Dried (track 8)   Options Cirque  Touch  Very quiet & airy, kind of like being at the bottom of a well.  ***  
 
 
Set 3. (Listen to this set: )
en O)))  Another Grimm World (track 1)   Options Another Grimm World  RSM  Deep throbbing like you're in the bowels of a ship, dark, hits a steady pace for the long haul, gets deeper as it winds down during the last 7 minutes, loud end.

Sally Timms  Sweetheart Waltz (track 6) (Listen: )   Options Cowboy Sally's Twilight Laments For Lost Buckaroos  Bloodshot  Floaty, soft, highly romantic.  ***
