Track Comments Approx. start time
Never Too Much mixage   Smoosh from The American Bandstand 40th Anniversary broadcast feat. ultra sexy Luther Vandross live set. Plus Nicole, German top-40 camp circa 1986. All squished up and modded for your enjoyment.  0:00:00 ()
Interview with Melissa F. Clark at WFMU   Melissa F. Clarke works in data sonification. She takes measurements gathered by sonar and other measurements from glaciers - and then turns that into sound. For those listening in the NYC area, Melissa is performing live this Saturday at Invisible Dog Art Center - full info here. Below is a nice visual representation of her sounds...

An installation view at 319 Scholes.

Folke Rabe and Jan Bark   Track called Argh! Amazing. A kaleidoscopic cut-up of top-40 songs and top-40 announcers. Love it to death. This was 1965. Do you believe that? Oh my god. Ahead of its time is an understatement.  1:49:26 ()

Here's a somewhat topic related share; underwater sound project that let's you listen live to the sounds of the Antarctic Ocean. Lot's of drones and squeals, sea life, unknowns and sometimes the sound of an occasional glacier crashing into the sea.

Have you considered incorporating the Jonestown "death tape" into your sonic stream of consciousness?

  Tue. 6/26/12 1:25am Deep Listener:

I appreciated Melissa's Clarke's work much more before I heard her talk about her process. How can anyone not make actual site recordings if they are in such special places?
  Tue. 6/26/12 1:38am Future Mike:

Once I was in the northern Territories of Canada for a month doing science, and I needed to estimate the depth of a frozen lake. I used a Palm Pilot and sledge hammer to try and get reflections through the ice and off the lake bottom. It didn't work.
Avatar Tue. 6/26/12 1:41am Nat:

LOL, good try, Mike.
  Tue. 6/26/12 1:58am melissa clarke:

hey there, i just wanted to say definitely i'll be making site recordings...i believe i mentioned i would be recording sound, video, and taking photos during the entire expedition. just thought i would clarify that one :)
Avatar Tue. 6/26/12 2:01am Nat:

Looking forward to seeing what results of your trip in a big way, Melissa. Thanks for listening!
