Track Comments Approx. start time
Exile on Main Street 50th anniversary mix   Celebrating the classic Stones LP by playing songs from another record, Emotional Rescue. Plus unrelated trax from Tevin Campbell and Pompidou.  0:00:00 ()
"You can't tell me what to do, you're not my father"   Along with Eric Bunger's "Variation on a Theme by Loud Reed"  0:16:30 ()
 
Picking cheesy LP covers from the record library pretty much   Had a shit week, gonna make myself feel better with some mediocre dance music. Hope it works for you too?  0:27:18 ()
 
Mensuration Canon   Mind the lack of a "t" there. This is by Larry Polansky, his "Four Voice Canons", based on the medieval round technique known as a mensuration canon.  0:53:48 ()
WFMU DJs repeating what they heard from other WFMU DJs   From Kurt Gottschalk's 2011 marathon premium  1:00:02 ()
Terry Riley manipulating space-time   with his Time Lag accumulator, basically an analog delay he used to layer the soul song "You're No Good" on itself over and over and then toss it all around the place.  1:03:16 ()
Rocket Morton   originally pulled from Captain Beefheart, the sample fed into itself and repeated until it makes no sense. By Nurse With Wound! From the "A Sucked Orange" LP.  1:10:29 ()
Kenzo remixing Marty McSorely's show...   Kenzo, master looper.  1:12:44 ()
Superfly Meets Shaft   Yep. playing this one straight off Duane's show from the other day.  1:18:03 ()
Listening to my own show   This workout LP is so great I just want to listen to it as many times at once as possible!  1:20:47 ()
Some smoothness with some weirdness     1:25:18 ()
Random websites that have autoplay music on them   Courtesy of soundsoftheinternet.com  1:42:30 ()
Really low quality version of "I've been missing you pretty baby"     1:52:58 ()
Really low quality version of "Number of the Beast"   Back to recursion fest '12. Cory Argangel downsampled this Iron Maiden song 666 times.  1:54:26 ()
Two speakers saying "nnn" and "ooh" at each other.   By Mr. Joe Colley.  1:59:13 ()
It Was A Dark and Stormy Night...   By Nicholas Collins  2:01:49 ()
Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet   Found recording of a homeless man recording, repeated over and over and played against various harmonies played by a symphony. By Gavin Bryars.  2:07:15 ()

  Tue. 7/17/12 12:31am Veronica:

Hi Nat, looking forward to all the recursive audio! Sounds good so far.

Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 12:46am Nat:

Yes! That was one of the suggestions, Dexter. Coming up!
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:54am Veronica:

Cheesy dance music and recursion sounds like a good combo
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:56am sinister dexter:

Hello Nat and listeners
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:54am Colin in Glasgow:

Whoa! That sports bar theme is like actual sound of triumph over adversity.
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:01am wrof:

compression of the beast
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:15am fred:

Great set Nat, I'm gonna have to (try to) wake up earlier from now on...
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:19am Veronica:

This one's beautiful. Doesn't sound like what I would associate with Gavin Bryars...very cool.
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:20am fred:

@Veronica: agreed. I first heard it at a contemporary dance show and I loved it instantly
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:21am Veronica:

@Fred: There were choreographed movements to this?
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:23am fred:

Well, not exactly following the music, more the phrases, and matching the general mood. It was by William Forsythe
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:24am Veronica:

Nice
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:24am Nat:

Well, there are always the archives, Fred. This one'a s bit schmaltzy, gotta admit.
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:26am wrof:

according to Wikipedia, Tom Waits made a recording of this, "singing along with the original recording of the vagrant during the final section". Doesn't surprise me, as he's an imposter and opportunist.
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:27am fred:

@Veronica: It's called Quintett, from 1993. Very unusual for Forsythe, who usually goes for speed and virtuosity
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:30am fred:

@Nat: the archives... but then it means I'm not listening to the live stream. I already have trouble keeping up with Billy Jam
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:32am Veronica:

Gotta love YouTube. Thanks Fred. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyLpZjKo3Nk
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:38am neil:

think it is a genetic disorder. mongoloid
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:52am fred:

It reminds me of Dylan's Xmas record, for the cringe factor
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:57am fred:

You got off easy; have you read "Apex hides the hurt" by Colson Whitehead?
