I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Hello everyone!
Bryce, have you heard Jean-François Laporte's "Mantra" which was released in the Collection Pour L'Oreille by Metamkine? He uses the cooling system of a hockey arena.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:27pm Looms:

I mean, the sound of the cooling system of a hockey arena.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/1/12 12:35pm bryce:

hahaaa, that sounds amazing :) i wonder if we have that here. we used to get some metamkine stuff....
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:36pm George of Troy:

G'day everyone! Looms, thanks for the tip... Sounds like something I'd like to check out.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:43pm Looms:

It's a 22 minutes drone piece; quite nice if you play it loud.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:43pm BSI:

Lasse! He did a brutal set down here a while back...
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:52pm BDR:

I like all your shows, Bryce, but I love the drone shows best.
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:52pm BSI:

...whereas this Baschet piece has me thinking it's time to dig out the CARNIVAL OF SOULS dvd this weekend...
  Fri. 6/1/12 12:54pm Chris from DC:

Looms, I thought I saw a review that said Laporte recorded a Zamboni?
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:02pm Carmichael:

Hiya Brycey boy. Hello everyone.

looms, no luck — plenty of mario lanza, though!
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:05pm Swan:

Further to the Laporte discussion -- it may be easier to find that piece now on 23five. They reissued it a few years ago, and added a handful of other stuff. The rest is (mostly) great too, as I remember.
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:09pm Zamboni Brothers:

Chill, y'all! Bryce is da Ycey-est!
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:11pm kat330:

Tuned in for a very interesting piece, this Sala.

a little lunchtime trautonium
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:17pm Looms:

@Chris from DC: liner notes of the CD say he recorded a refrigerating compressor. I haven't listened to it for a few years but zamboni sounds could have been used as well.
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:17pm Tom M:

I saw the trautonium in a Berlin museum recently.
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:17pm Ken of Brooklyn:

Fantastique show Monsieur Bryce!
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:19pm Chris from DC:

Thanks, Looms, clears that up.

@Tom M: what museum was that? I was in Berlin recently and will probably back in the not-too-distant future.
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:28pm kat330:

Looms, aren't you from northern France?
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:29pm dc pat:

ZB: ..and blood. I was at the Caps practice rink over in Ballston last year and somebody must have gotten run over by a skate. Blood everywhere. They were trying to sweep it up..

oopsie, he's at home. i could stick my hooha in a light socket though!
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:41pm kat330:

You have a hooha, Bryce? The things I learn here.
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:42pm bruceleh:

I would think the hooha would have, say, vacuum tubes inserted into it!

hm.... that opens up a world of possibilities. A sound-art performance with two wrestlers wearing full-body contact-mic suits, maybe?
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:46pm northguineahills:

  Fri. 6/1/12 1:46pm kat330:

The pronouns all indicate you're a dude, so where'd this hooha come from? We must have diff. definitions of hooha.

...and the referee is some mad-scientist type with a mixer & rack of FX...... ooh, the ideas....

  Fri. 6/1/12 1:49pm kat330:

I've been there so know that firsthand, Looms! :)
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:49pm dc pat:

yeah, I'd agree with kat--in my book, hooha definitely equals....uh, what those ladies in that robot video DIDN'T expose..
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:50pm kat330:

Actually, the only person I'd ever heard use the term "hooha" is Kristen Chenowith, and it wasn't any part on the average man.
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:50pm Sam Spade:

I held up my end. You got your dingus. It's your hard luck it wasn't what you wanted.
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:51pm kat330:

What's that about a hard dingus, Spade?
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:53pm Sam Spade:

Then you think the dingus is worth a million?
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:54pm Robot Stripper:

Can you hold up *my* end, Sammy?
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:54pm kat330:

Only if it's Maltese.
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:55pm Sam Spade:

The stuff that dreams are made of.
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:59pm kat330:

Speaking of percussion, I made a serviceable maraca this morning. Just some brown rice (uncooked, bocoors) in an empty plastic container (Talenti pint gelato in this instance). Worked extremely well.
  Fri. 6/1/12 1:59pm Maltese:

arf! arf!
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:00pm kat330:

Who's a good doggie!!
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:01pm Maltese:

[sits up and begs, doing his best Asta]
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:01pm Mr Donut:

So that's what a Maltese Bippy looks like
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:02pm Maltese:

I accept Ken-L-Hooha
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:03pm still b/p:

I gave a pocket maraca to a musician friend -- small ball bearings in a contact lens case...allows you to alter the sound quality by making your hand tighter and more loose on it while it's held in the palm.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:04pm kat330:

Very interesting, s b/p. Yeah, I tried all sorts of kitchen items before I hit on the right sound I wanted. I can alter the pitch a bit by how full I fill with rice.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:06pm Experimental Musician:

I tried all sorts of kitchen items before I hit on the wrong sound I wanted.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:06pm kat330:

Is this screw the station ID hour? :) I don't think Bryce likes the mic.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:07pm steve from cleve:

I had a nice pots'n'pans session a few weeks back. who needs costly percussion items when the whole world is one big bang.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:07pm Experimental Musician:

He probably whispered it under the track
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:07pm "the mic":

actually, Bryce LICKS the mic
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:08pm kat330:

If he whispered during the piercing Fort, I could've missed while the mute was on.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:08pm Maltese:

One big bang? I'll take that
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:09pm The Log Lady:

Hi Bryce! The log has a special message for you today; please remember to obey it's instructions! :-)
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:09pm kat330:

Chenowith's dog -- maybe a Maltese? -- licks her directly in the mouth, to bring this hooha/dog of a discussion full circle.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:09pm FCC rep, undercover:

we'll take Bryce licking the mic as a station id. No one else in the world does that. Station ID'd.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:10pm FCC addendum:

Bryce doesn't do station ID, he does station OD
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:10pm northguineahills:

I've borrowed my/gf's metal bowls and my friend's weights just for the sounds many of times.

  Fri. 6/1/12 2:11pm FCC addendum:

The ELS track KICKS ASS!!!!!!!!!!!
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:11pm Mike East:

Kristen Chenowith was here a few weeks ago. I'm not sure who she is or what she does, but her music really got on my nerves. Not my thing.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:13pm kat330:

She's a Broadway baby. I'm not a fan of the little-girl voice either, nor her repertoire. An awful lot of little-girl voices are beloved at this station, however.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:14pm tim from champaign:

How come WFMU only plays that one song by EAS Test? It's a good jam but don't you think it's a bit lazy playing just that one song?
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:15pm kat330:

@NGH: I also found a metal teaspoon striking the edge of a metal one-cup measure makes a cool sound. Very cowbell-ish.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:16pm FCC addendum:

EAS has put out 29 CD's, but all with the same arrangement. You can't top perfection. They tried actual marbles in a blender, but that just didn't cut it.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:16pm northguineahills:

cool kat330!
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:17pm kat330:

At lEASt it seemed really truncated this time.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:20pm FCC addendum:

Had this been an actual emergency, it would have been tough noogies on you.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:20pm BSI:

  Fri. 6/1/12 2:21pm steve from cleve:

"tough" is the only way I've ever had my noogies. I've come to prefer it.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:23pm Graveyard Workers Local 216:

I dig.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:23pm tim from champaign:

The EAS Test songs that are played on the country stations fill me with more confidence in case there was an emergency. It has a lot of patriotism and swagger to it unlike the self-loathing and apologetic WFMU EAS jams.
  Fri. 6/1/12 2:24pm kat330:

About Dreyblatt: "The Adding Machine," represents my first venture into consecutive melody, utilizing the vertical tuning structure found on the fingerboard of an electric guitar which has been modified to perform in the tuning system used in my music. The piece gradually makes its way through successive tonal permutations expressed in "circular" patterns."
