Nat Roe  1983 Randomatic Cutup   Options No Album  No Label  This is a cut-up I produced using shell scripting and applied to every hit song of 1983.

The script takes a random number of clips from each mp3, each of which is a random length and starts at a random point in the song.

Have fun!!

Good morning Nat
  Wed. 11/30/11 3:12am Nat:

Yo Fred!
  Wed. 11/30/11 3:29am Sam:

Hi Fred, Nat.
What the hell is a jiggowatt?!
  Wed. 11/30/11 3:30am Sam:

All the futuristic stuff died out in the 60's basically, maybe some hung on until the 80's. Now futuristic and retro are one in the same, like the Jetsons for example.
  Wed. 11/30/11 3:31am Nat:

I believe a jiggowatt was the amount of electricity that was needed for the Delorean in Back To The Future to power the time travel device that was up in there.
  Wed. 11/30/11 3:32am Sam:

Yeah I know, I was just quoting the movie
  Wed. 11/30/11 3:32am Nat:

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I see
  Wed. 11/30/11 3:33am Sam:

Actually it was 1.21 jiggowatts.
  Wed. 11/30/11 3:37am Sam:

The future was supposed to be robots doing all kinds of chores for us. Instead of that we have addiction to the internet and all this texting and electronic chatting. Everyone's typing messages all the time which really is hardly more advanced than the telegraph.
  Wed. 11/30/11 3:39am Sam:

THIS is nice!
  Wed. 11/30/11 4:21am fred:

Another composition involving radio is Stockhausen's Spiral, for short wave radio and a soloist. A few weeks ago I heard a performance where the instrument was a no-input mixing board. Very cool (and the performer was WFMU listener Zax)
  Wed. 11/30/11 4:31am neil:

woa whats next puttin on the ritz.?
  Wed. 11/30/11 4:32am Nat:

Here's the list!

  Wed. 11/30/11 4:35am neil:

he he he
  Wed. 11/30/11 4:38am Nat:

ha ha ha
  Wed. 11/30/11 4:39am Sam:

Do we love listening to these 1983 cutups so much because we long for our childhood? I think it's the case for me.
  Wed. 11/30/11 4:40am Nat:

Yeah man, I want nothing more than to go back into the womb. So warm...so simple...
  Wed. 11/30/11 4:42am Sam:

I tried to go back into the womb - my mom freaked out and called the cops
  Wed. 11/30/11 4:43am Nat:

he he he
  Wed. 11/30/11 4:51am neil:

I made a tape with my first boom box around this era just recording the radio and using the pause button. My tape had a 7 up ad on it and lots ov this stuff. i was a wierd kid.
  Wed. 11/30/11 4:53am Nat:

I would love to hear that tape
  Wed. 11/30/11 4:55am Sam:

I always used to tape stuff off the radio too, but I'd often miss the beginnings of songs and stuff. Then when I heard a new song I liked better I'd tape over part of it, but it was real sloppy so there would be all kinds of weird jumps between songs, and commercials too, and DJ banter, not to mention static from bad reception. I wish I could find those tapes now.
  Wed. 11/30/11 4:57am g.g.:

i thought that digital drugs didn't work i was wrong thanks nat
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:16am Nat:

Always happy to introduce g.g. to more drugs.

Watched GG Allin on Jerry Springer the other day, incidentally. Pretty amazing.
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:19am pierre:

Bonjour Nat Roe,
Salut fred, an all listeners

late checking in
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:26am Nat:

  Wed. 11/30/11 5:31am Marmalade Kitty:

@Sam: What can be so important? with all the messaging? nothing! people get a nervous twitch twitter time
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:35am fred:

Salut Pierre!
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:36am neil:

have a good day night yall. keep it crunchy...
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:43am Marmalade Kitty:

all this messaging is like a short cut to nothing
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:44am Marmalade Kitty:

but I guess thts something..
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:45am kOi eMz:

I think these Randomatic Cutups could be more interesting if the playback sequence was entirely random i.e. fragments of one song were not all together, followed by all fragments of next song, etc. Less like a long cutup to nothing.
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:49am Marmalade Kitty:

random? no, no, no, not random..
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:52am Marmalade Kitty:

it may appear random..
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:53am Nat:

Yeah, I was thinking about doing that. I thought it was more listenable the way I did that. But it would've been just a slight alteration in the script to make that happen. It's certainly more conceptually pure, but I thought it'd be FUNNER this way!
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:55am Marmalade Kitty:

more spontaneous like?
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:56am Nat:

Just so that it wouldn't be tooooooo scattered. Man. I just read an article about Newy Gingrich being all corrupt in the Times. And then I read an article in Bloomberg about the Fed giving 7.7 Trillion dollars of taxpayer money to superbanks. Now I'm upset.
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:57am fred:

Nat, is the order of the songs random too?
  Wed. 11/30/11 5:59am Marmalade Kitty:

the Dollar is a figment of the banks imagination
  Wed. 11/30/11 6:00am Nat:

No, they're just ordered in the order that they were cut up.
  Wed. 11/30/11 6:00am Zoogz Rift:

What has "listenable" got to do with it?
  Wed. 11/30/11 6:00am Nat:

I will go to dream now
  Wed. 11/30/11 6:01am Marmalade Kitty:

Great show nat!
