Artist Track Album Label Comments Approx. start time
Nat Roe  A rough guide to last week in WFMU   Options No Album  No Label  I set up my computer to record wfmu's live stream every 15 minutes for last week...and then forgot to turn it off until a couple days ago. So I've got WFMU recorded every 15 minutes, whenever my computer happened to be on.

And so I decided to remix the crap of it. Hear a crash course of last week collaged with user-submitted supercuts.

Daniel Steffey  Chloros   Options Chloros  Edgetone  "This music was written in 2009-2010 and explores the audio qualities of radio and sine waves and how they interact with each other along with other mechanisms such as feedback, digital manipulation, and analogue distortion."  0:32:02 ()
Jah Pelikaho  Dr. Dr. Humanity   Options 21st Century Dub  Roir    0:38:54 ()
Terry Riley  Aleph Part II   Options Aleph  Tzadik  New recordings by Riley, played on a Korg Triton in just intonation. Best thing I've heard from him in a while.  0:43:51 ()
Shit & Shine  Untitled   Options Le Grand Larance Prix  Rock Is Hell  New 3xLP.  0:49:16 ()
Nat Roe  Starmaster's Gambit   Options No Album  No Album  Leaping from decade to decade, from genre to genre, as if it were one. Been reading this sci-fi book called Starmaster's Gambit about a guy who discovers that drinking "Zotl" (read: LSD) and putting his fingers on an ancient chessboard enable him to travel the universe instantaneously. I don't espouse drug use, but I do espouse any form of spatial-temporal condensing. Even if it's just a conflation of the dream and waking state.

Lots of sound effects from the Warner Brother's library in this one.

F.C. Judd  China Bowl and Suspended Motion   Options Electronics Without Tears  Public Information  This electronic/concrete explorer from the mid-century just got a reissue. Bleepy bloopy future music from the past, what's not to love?

Although he was renowned as a popularizer of esoteric electronic techniques long ago, he's not generally included in the concrete canon. Still, very nice stuff.

Helmut Schäfer  Thought Provoking III   Options Thought Provoking III  23five  Inspired by Zbiniew Karkowski.  1:35:38 ()
Morton Sobotnick  Butterflies part III   Options Electronic Works, Vol. 3  Mode  Originally from 1973, just reissued in new collection.  1:42:57 ()
Nat Roe  Radio skippage take 2   Options No Album  No Label  More improvised collage along with the WFMU streams that I accidently recorded last week.  1:56:11 ()
Unicorn Hard-On  Persian Cats   Options Split 12" w/ Container  More    2:12:41 ()
Sewn Leather  Side A   Options Sikknastafari Slash Crasstafari  Hundebiss  I'm not playing it at the wrong speed.  2:20:39 ()
Philip Gayle  Sleep Rain   Options Bubanco Total  Public Eyesore  Improvised bodily functions. Very gross. Although, I gotta say, I've never heard extended vocals quite like this. Very much for lovers of Fatty Jubbo's radio show/podcast. Ewwwww.....  2:33:33 ()
Noah Creshevsky  Tomomi Adachi Redux II   Options Rounded With a Sleep  Pogus  Adachi Tomomi does manipulated playback of dadaist vocal performances with Max/MSP. In some performances, he controls MSP with infared sensors attached to a jacket, so he moves and the sound changes. Noah Creshevsky, a pioneer of take music, reworked a Tomomi performance.  2:37:23 ()
Alice Coltrane  A Love Supreme   Options World Galaxy  Impulse  Nice and easy let off for a tough show. Alice's amazing LPs Huntington Ashram Monastery and World Galaxy were just reissued together on one CD. Classics of Eastern-tinged jazz fusion. We hear a wonderfully reinvented "A Love Supreme", a song which her husband John also did great versions of, of course.  2:43:31 ()

Good morning Nat
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:09am ian:

cool idea!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:10am Nat:

Hey guys! Thanks, Ian.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:36am Deepak:

Morning Nat, got some smooth Jazz for us today?
Avatar Wed. 3/14/12 3:38am Nat:

Oh man! I almost did a set like that. I was on hold with T-Mobile's customer service forever today and they were playing some smooth jazzy elevator stuff and I was like maaan....I wish I could record this right this instant. Will do next week!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:41am Deepak:

Please stay on the line while we direct you to our customer representative.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:43am Deepak:

i never get through, mine disconnects every single time or i get lost in their options and menus.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:44am Deepak:

on Vodafone i.e.
Avatar Wed. 3/14/12 3:46am Nat:

Yeah, I was trying to change my phone number and they transferred me so many times I just gave up.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:11am fred:

Nat, something tells me Trent's supercut will be on your premium...
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:13am Nat:

Oh yeah, for sure. It's going to be a really good comp. Last track I'm trying to get is a submission from Nachum Segal from JM in the AM.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:17am fred:

Is he actually interested or are you trying to get him to do one?
Avatar Wed. 3/14/12 4:18am Nat:

Yeah! He expressed interest. Hoping to have a cool supercut of Jewish music.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:20am fred:

That would be nice. So you got submissions from many DJs? I hope there were strangers too
Avatar Wed. 3/14/12 4:21am Nat:

Hmmm....I think it's a few more listeners than DJs, but nearly an even split.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:23am fred:

Did you get one from Kenny G?
Avatar Wed. 3/14/12 4:24am Nat:

  Wed. 3/14/12 4:59am Deepak:

maybe because of the 50s Hollywood stuff GI's introduced left in South Korea
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:15am Caryn:

Just noticed the "Starmaster's Gambit" note. Klein's an interesting writer, but I think only 4 of his books have been translated into English. Wish that more were, because my French is limited.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:17am fred:

Good morning Caryn!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:20am Caryn:

Mornin' fred!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:39am Deepak:

man thats disgusting and i finished my lunch just five minutes ago.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:40am Caryn:

So apparently "improvised bodily functions" sound exactly like a pissed off Donald Duck.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:46am Nathan:

Mr Sparkle after he became a washed up alcoholic....
