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.

@βrian, had to google that one. Where are you that is so lugubrious?

Bryce, I'm terribly sorry to tell you that my bird is dead.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 12:28pm Bryce:

is that true?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 12:30pm tim from champaign:

Bryce, is there a Santa Claus?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 12:32pm Richard Nixon:

It is. I actually accidentally killed my little friend. Was cleaning her cage and she got out. She was pretty easy to catch since she's never been able to fly more than a foot or so but she went into shock as I carried her back to her cage. We're very sad in our house. She had many nicknames. 'Twiglet' was my favorite.

The track!
Deeeep. Wow, Impressed.

Hi Bryce. I'm wearing a tie so the music will sound better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 12:40pm common:

sorry about your bird friend, richard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 12:41pm tim from champaign:

Me too, Richard. Pets are good friends.

Carmichael, just a tie?

Bomp Ding Bowooow Hik Tink Hello!
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 12:43pm Brian in UK:

Hey Looms, is it as miserable weather over your side of La Manche as it is here?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 12:46pm Carmichael:

That's it, Brian. The music sounds better, but a little colder as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 12:47pm Richard Nixon:

This is the first time I've listened to your show since her death. I could never tell if she loved it or hated it but she was quite vocal about it either way.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 12:47pm Looms:

Hi Brian! A bit rainy/foggy but not too cold here; and a nice december weather ahead for tomorrow.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 12:53pm Richard Nixon:

I'm not wearing a tie (I don't even own one) but I am dressing for my company's holiday party so I am a bit more dressy than I normally get. And, yes, it does make the music sound better.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 12:55pm Chris from DC:

Good stuff to get through the day til beersies and Goblin later.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 12:55pm Bryce:

something had better!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 12:56pm BDR:

Now Karkowski: www.spin.com... What is it with Fridays?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 12:57pm common:

beersies, Chris. Yep. And Goblin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 12:57pm Richard Nixon:

I think next week we should all get dressed up for Bryces show. Make it sort of a formal event. It sure makes the music sound better. Any takers?
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 12:58pm Bryce:

I know......karkowski's up next.

didn't have time to put together a whole show. next week.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 12:59pm Droll:

[gets dressed up and tests the theory]
It does make Bryce's sound better, but it's still not classy like A440. Bethany packs more class into one hour than Bryce puts in three hours, even wearing a clip-on tie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 1:00pm Richard Nixon:

Bryce you could do a memorial service for Twiglet and Karkowski. We'll all get dressed up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 1:02pm tim from champaign:

I'm not familiar with Karkowski. I like the quote used in the article. Deep thinking.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:06pm Chris from DC:

Thanks for the (upcoming) Karkowski. RIP.

my pleasure, Chris! i wish it weren't the middle of the work day here. his music wants to move furniture around.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! great thx !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hi all
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 1:19pm Ike:

My boss seems to be out for the day (hence my commenting without being automatically decapitated), so I guess I *could* get up and move some furniture around. That might also warm me up a bit. But this piece doesn't seem to call for it.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:23pm YETI BOB:

this might be good, this might be bad. perhaps brilliant. i don't know, i have no framework to judge it. it's awfully hard to listen to though.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:25pm YETI BOB:

really enjoyed the 1975 improv.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 1:29pm common:

my co-worker thought my computer was about to explode.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:29pm YETI BOB:

ike: i don't think it's supposed to make *you* move furniture around. i think the idea is that you play it loud enough that chunks of plaster start falling from the ceiling, chairs and tables vibrate across the floor, etc.

jamesie: me too.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:30pm YETI BOB:

(me, not my dog)
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:32pm βrian:

This sounds, like, *totally* cold war to me.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:34pm Bryce:

to my ears, karkowski's music is just beautiful and transcendent. it's meant to be all-consuming. i find myself so quickly drawn in and carried to the along to the center.

Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:34pm Droll:

My ceiling is cowering in the corner. But I think it's supposed to do that.

no worries, yeti bob, it ain't exactly skiffle! :) i also like hair clippers...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 1:45pm Ike:

@Yeti Bob@1:29, yeah, that occurred to me after I typed my dumb comment. Nice imagery, wish I could do that. As soon as my co-worker steps out for a phone call, this ceiling is going DOWN!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 1:46pm steve:

hey all. RIP ZK. saw ZK's at a noise fest in the 2000s and ZK's laptop was maybe the loudest thing of the whole event. i still remember it vividly. so glad i got to see him.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:48pm Bryce:

oh cool!

i know, that experience is so not possible to capture and reproduce with two stereo speakers...
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:49pm Chris from DC:

He was great live, yeah. I remember the subwoofer smoking during his set.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:49pm Flan nugget:

I cut my speakers in eight pieces to better replicate the experience.
  Fri. 12/13/13 1:51pm fascinoma:

any info on the production of the track, bryce? curious about the relevance of the title.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 1:53pm common:

chris: that's great!
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:53pm Looms:

This piece is absolutly awesome.

Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:55pm Chris from DC:

I'm paying big time for the way too loud these days myself.
  Fri. 12/13/13 1:55pm bill:

@fascinoma - some info here:
  Fri. 12/13/13 1:58pm fascinoma:

awesome, thank you!! "stochastic resonance of white noise"
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 1:59pm Bryce:

thanks, bill! yeah, that's what's on the sleeve, nothing more.

tinnitus, chris? hope not.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 2:02pm Chris from DC:

Me too, Fasc, doesn't seem like it though. Getting checked out soon anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/13/13 2:03pm tim from champaign:

Bryce, how did you come about developing your knowledge of modern music? Every week I'm blown away with what you play and rarely am I already familiar with it.
  Fri. 12/13/13 2:04pm fascinoma:

ah, EVP...

have ya'll read Kittler on the cultural history of the gramophone?
  Fri. 12/13/13 2:12pm fascinoma:

glad to hear that, Chris. it's good to be able to choose *when* you get your dose of nearly supersonic whining.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 2:18pm Bryce:

tim, can't claim to Know much, just been hanging around here forever, around people who are, like, "oh, you might like this!"

and brian turner keeps the new bin filled with amazing goodies. all i have to do is hit the button!
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 2:18pm Chris from DC:

I hope you're not speaking from experience.
  Fri. 12/13/13 2:27pm fascinoma:

@Chris sadly, no. did some damage a while back but luckily it faded after a few months. required making peace with my own neurological inputs and left me with a healthy appreciation for noise, tbqh
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 2:55pm Chris from DC:

Great show Bryce.
Avatar Fri. 12/13/13 2:56pm Bryce:
