  Fri. 8/31/12 3:09pm hamburger:

  Fri. 8/31/12 3:12pm common:

  Fri. 8/31/12 3:26pm fred:

Good afternoon Kurt and listeners
Nice start to this show, hence to my weekend
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:27pm Carmichael:

Hiya, Kurty boy.
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:29pm Carmichael:

And a nice Journey-themed landscape, Jeff!
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:31pm bryce:

kurt, really good show!
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:31pm northguineahills:

Where's the Bassoon, I don't hear one!

Ultramarine recs has some good stuff!
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:32pm DCE:

bryce likes your show!
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:33pm northguineahills:

Ninni Morgia (Aquamarine is his label), was here in Brooklyn, but the last I spoke to him, he was back in Italy.
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:33pm DCE:

that's it. I refuse to do any more work today.
Avatar    Fri. 8/31/12 3:37pm DJKG:

no kidding, ngh! i didn't know that was ninni's label!
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:39pm common:

this is great!
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:45pm BSI:

deep.
me likey.
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:46pm northguineahills:

From the other room, this Wastell/McHugh sounded like Biosphere.
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:51pm Caryn:

Hello all!
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:55pm Cheri Pi:

Hi Caryn~ bliss out w/ us
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:55pm Carmichael:

This is some broodong Cage music. Hard to edit documents by, as I get too involved in the music.
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:57pm northguineahills:

I found it interesting that they had a Cage score at MOMA.
  Fri. 8/31/12 3:58pm fred:

Good evening Caryn, it's been a while
  Fri. 8/31/12 4:00pm Carmichael:

*brooding* ... Brew dong happens at my local pub.
  Fri. 8/31/12 4:03pm Caryn:

Hi Cheri! Yeah, fred, been away on holiday, most of it on a little island. No WFMU for almost 3 weeks. Good to be back!
  Fri. 8/31/12 4:06pm hamburger:

there's some weird thing going on at MOMA, photos of people crying whilst the artist is just sitting in a chair staring at them... http://marinaabramovicmademecry.tumblr.com/
  Fri. 8/31/12 4:32pm tim from champaign:

Great interview! I never noticed the sitar-y sound in this song before.
  Fri. 8/31/12 4:37pm Carmichael:

I didn't realize that Denny Randell was involved in the writing of Lover's Concerto. He worked with Bob Crewe and ultimately wrote some good Four Seasons numbers.
  Fri. 8/31/12 4:41pm Caryn:

The post-interview set is really coming out swinging!
  Fri. 8/31/12 4:53pm Mike East:

sounding good today, DJKG!
  Fri. 8/31/12 4:57pm common:

Happy weekend everyone!!~!!! Beer beer beer!!!!
  Fri. 8/31/12 4:58pm Mike East:

I'll take one of those, common!
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:01pm fred:

This is really nice. I'm going to miss this show when I resume my regular schedule -- being at a gig on Friday nights.
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:01pm Carmichael:

Beer is so close, but yet so far ....
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:04pm kat330:

Here for the last hour at least. Hi, Kurt and ready-for-the-weekend listeners!
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:04pm Caryn:

Speaking of film music, spent most of the day racking my brain after watching a movie with a Michael Nyman score, only to recognise one bit as originally coming from another movie, and more specifically, a scene where someone committed suicide. Just couldn't remember what. Drove me nuts until I googled the track...
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:09pm M:

Love your show
Listen regularly
We love WFMU
And many thanks all your support
One Dj at KUSF in EXILE
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:13pm hamburger:

so which movie was it Caryn?!
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:13pm kat330:

Hey, Caryn! I don't believe I've seen you on MM, at least not in recent months. You might enjoy checking out Kurt's playlist here when you have a moment: http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/46503 for some Gristle-y Kat sounds sent in. :) [TrisKaideKaphobic MonKs]
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:16pm Caryn:

@kat: ooh, will have to check that out! Yeah, I tend to somewhat lurk during MM, as I tend to just zone out on the music and not write that much on the comments board.
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:17pm kat330:

Oh, then maybe you already heard it. And speaking of films, did you ever see "Iron Sky," Caryn?
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:25pm Caryn:

@kat: not yet (couldn't afford to see it while it was in theatres), but will undoubtedly check it out at some point.
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:37pm hamburger:

woa
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:37pm fred:

I really like Tom Johnson. Galileo is amazing live; even though you quickly know what's next, it's still new. And it's both physical and intellectual
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:37pm kat330:

This is fascinating. I have 2 streams just the tiniest bit off-sync making it -- mind-blowing.
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:37pm hamburger:

seems david lynch-y today
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:38pm hamburger:

spooky ragtime
Avatar    Fri. 8/31/12 5:39pm DJKG:

yeah, johnson's crazy! do you know his "lecture on repeating" (or a title similar to that)? the audience yells to get him to either repeat the last sentence or move on to the next one after each line. it's amazing and hilarious! i heard him do it and was half the room was on the floor laughing because it's so absurd and he's so stone-faced doing it.
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:40pm Prog Police:

I checked the "Math" box for Tom Johnson, but unless there's an arrangement with flute playing the solo line, this is not going to be reported to The Central Scrutinizer.
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:44pm fred:

@DJKG: I didn't know that one. But he lives in Paris and has ties to both my favorite venue (instants chavir├ęs) and where I work. I've had chance sightings quite a few times, asking "hey, isn't that Tom Johnson?" to people nearby, getting blank stares in return...
Avatar    Fri. 8/31/12 5:46pm DJKG:

oh, you should go chat him up! i've only spoken to him briefly but i think he'd be very approachable. ask him to do some math problems for you!
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:52pm fred:

What I love most about Johnson's music is that you know the structure, but you really don't know what will fill it, and it's actually quite open within that framework

I know he's open-minded and approachable, but it's kinda tricky in my situation
Avatar    Fri. 8/31/12 5:53pm DJKG:

very well put. you know the structure but still can't see what it'll be. i like that.

if you don't mind my asking, what situation?
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:56pm kat330:

Good luck next Wednesday, Kurt! Thanks for the fascinating sounds heard today.

Have a good one, people!
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:57pm fred:

Well, when I see him at Ircam, he's with high ranking researchers, and I'm just a technician, I can't just go and interrupt.
  Fri. 8/31/12 5:58pm northguineahills:

Great set Kurt! See you next week!
  Fri. 8/31/12 6:00pm fred:

Nice show Kurt! I'll be at a gig next week... hear you later then
