Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from January 21, 2016 Options

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Evening, explorer WD!

Aye, Aye, Captain! Looking forward to some library.
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 6:57pm Flash Strap:

And welcome all to the first Thursday show of my second year of Explorers Room. My first show ever was Jan. 15 2015. So begins year 2 of hopefully many more
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:00pm ndbob:

evening Evan, Daydream everyone!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:00pm Walking Daydream:

I was thinking of downloading all your shows and somehow converting them to MP3.
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:02pm Walking Daydream:

How are you, Bob?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/21/16 7:02pm melinda:

Hello Evan, Bob, Walking D.!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:02pm Flash Strap:

evening Bob!

@WD: it can be done. I think my sister did it once
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:02pm Flash Strap:

Ah, hello explorer Melinda!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:03pm ndbob:

Hey there Melinda!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:04pm Flash Strap:

how are we all this fine evening?
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:05pm Flash Strap:

This track isn't library I know, but it's in a similar conceptual vein and I've just been meaning to play it for a while now.
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:05pm ndbob:

I'm doing well - finally got my Blazer back - aftera couple weeks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/21/16 7:05pm hyde:

hi gang
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:05pm ndbob:

and the usual - reading , listening
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:05pm Flash Strap:

Explorer Hyde in the room!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:06pm Walking Daydream:

Sounds like a slow dry cleaner, Bob.
  Thu. 1/21/16 7:06pm Dean:

The gif reminds me of the Sir Thomas Beecham comment about harpsichords.
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:06pm Flash Strap:

what sort of Blazer we talkin' here, bob?
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:06pm ndbob:

a Chevy SUV
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:07pm Flash Strap:

I want to know what you know about what Sir Thomas Beecham thinks about harsichords, Dean
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:07pm ndbob:

SUVs were necessary in North Dakota
  Thu. 1/21/16 7:07pm Dean:

"The sound of a harpsichord - two skeletons copulating on a tin roof in a thunderstorm."
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:08pm Flash Strap:

ah, I too was picturing a men's jacket, bob, but I had a feeling I was wrong
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:08pm ndbob:

Great quote there Dean
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:08pm Flash Strap:

@Dean: that's wonderful. Makes me wish this was a harsichord-themed show all of a sudden
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/21/16 7:08pm melinda:

I was imagining a suit coat as well.
  Thu. 1/21/16 7:09pm Dean:

Not entirely an exaggeration, either, which explains the charm of the harpsichord.
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:10pm ndbob:

Trying to remember when I had that kind of blazer - been a while
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:11pm Flash Strap:

it is such a strange, compelling sound
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:12pm ndbob:

Yep Evan
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:12pm Flash Strap:

I remember the MFA in boston had a room of archaic instruments, including a whole bevy of harpsichords & harpsichordesques with ornate scenic paintings on the flip-top, whatever that's called. What an instrument
  Thu. 1/21/16 7:13pm Dean:

Two records for when you do a harpsichord show, both performances on the Finlandia label by Jukka Tiensuu: The Fantastic Harpsichord and The Exuberant Harpsichord.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/21/16 7:13pm hyde:

@Evan heh, i know that room
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:13pm Flash Strap:

marking that down

The Gary!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:14pm Flash Strap:

@Hyde, when I was in boston and with the SMFA I used to spend endless hours in that museum.
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:15pm Flash Strap:

great show last night Gary!
  Thu. 1/21/16 7:16pm Dean:

One of the best, because most rare, live shows I've ever attended was Ton Koopman doing a Byrd recital on the harpsichord in my boss's living room in the Hollywood Hills.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/21/16 7:17pm melinda:

Congrats on entering your 2nd year of show, Flash!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:19pm ndbob:

I second that Melinda and Evan!
  Thu. 1/21/16 7:21pm David:

Library?
This music is borrowed
from the library?
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:24pm Flash Strap:

Wow Dean!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:24pm Flash Strap:

Thanks Bob, Melinda!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:24pm Flash Strap:

@David: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:26pm Flash Strap:

Library music is one of those well-kept secrets of music history. It's like spelunking, you almost have to know a spelunker (and very well at that) to get a map to a cave
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/21/16 7:27pm hyde:

library music is a daunting thicket
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:28pm Flash Strap:

Indeed. I try to help where I can, but I am hardly qualified to be a guide myself
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:28pm Walking Daydream:

This one is definitely like Barbarella or Flash Gordon.
  Thu. 1/21/16 7:28pm Dean:

Compounding the cool factor, a couple years later I worked at the Bodleian Library at Oxford for a summer. One day, after walking out of Blackwell's Bookstore on Broad St., I spied Koopman standing across the street. I approached him and mentioned having heard him in Hollywood. He replied that he was playing the Sheldonian Theatre that evening, so I attended that concert, too.
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:30pm Flash Strap:

that's pretty amazing, Dean
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:31pm ndbob:

wow - quite a story Dean
  Thu. 1/21/16 7:31pm Dean:

Still have to pinch myself sometimes. Good times.
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:34pm Flash Strap:

We'll return to Camille in a bit, but for now we turn to some grooves
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:35pm Doug Schulkind:

Hey Flashy and all Flashophiles!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:36pm Flash Strap:

Tzar Douglas!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:37pm ndbob:

Heya Doug!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:38pm Gary:

Sweet groove here
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:39pm Flash Strap:

yeah, the prog. percussion LPs are pretty monstrous as far as grooves go
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:40pm Flash Strap:

I think, but am not sure, that this is actually the same Eddie Warner
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:41pm Flash Strap:

HOT drums
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:47pm Flash Strap:

This stuff is pretty relentless! Don't worry, we'll get into meandering, formless nonsense very soon
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:48pm Flash Strap:

This LP was a split with Georges Teperino, aka Nino Nardini. He's everywhere!
  Thu. 1/21/16 7:52pm Dean:

Dig this! Compare bit.ly/1KtKLo7 with bit.ly/23hV89W. Same image, related artists, different albums!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:55pm Flash Strap:

ah haha! I've actually noticed that at one point myself! recycled stock artwork is a minor fascination of mine
  Thu. 1/21/16 7:56pm Dean:

Not surprising, I suppose, given your interest in library music. Do you know the guy who has a kickstarter (or similar) campaign for his book of retouched stock photos? It's a hoot.
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 7:56pm ndbob:

Song poem labels did that all the time - same covers for multiple LPs
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/21/16 7:57pm hyde:

image by Pierre-Laurent Brenot, no less. ooh la la.

excellent show Evan - catch the rest on the archive as usual
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/21/16 8:00pm coelacanth:

hello Evan and Explorers
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:06pm Flash Strap:

Hello C-fish!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:08pm Flash Strap:

That last track, which I said was L'Orange, is actually L'Orage. there are many typos in the library sharing world, so it's good I double-checked
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:12pm Flash Strap:

oh, also! a belated fare-thee-well to Bob!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:13pm Flash Strap:

The cover for this one is a delight: cdn.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/21/16 8:17pm hyde:

that is slightly frightening
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:18pm Flash Strap:

i know, right? that weird stick body, the way the face is sort of wrong...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/21/16 8:18pm coelacanth:

- the stuff of nightmares.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/21/16 8:20pm melinda:

This is nice.
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:20pm Flash Strap:

there's something so viscerally weird about disney knock-offs. DuBuffet would have a lot to say about it, the destruction of the face as a realization of death
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:24pm Flash Strap:

those "Be My Baby" drums
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/21/16 8:25pm hyde:

now just how are you supposed to crack a safe to this tune
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:26pm Flash Strap:

the really weird stuff is coming up soon
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:26pm Flash Strap:

@Hyde: carefully, soulfully, while popping the fingers of your non-dominant hand
  Thu. 1/21/16 8:27pm spookcityusa:

dude, hawksworth is my jam!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:28pm Flash Strap:

Hey Spook!
  Thu. 1/21/16 8:31pm spookcityusa:

hey man, very very nice so far!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:32pm Flash Strap:

thanks man
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/21/16 8:43pm hyde:

that bed music was the weirdest version of "my old kentucky home" i've ever heard
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:44pm Flash Strap:

oh, I know!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:46pm Flash Strap:

This stuff is so weird and expressionistic
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:52pm Flash Strap:

interesting that this was his idea of what black American music sounded like
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:53pm Flash Strap:

if that's indeed what the title is even alluding to: perhaps he intends to convey some aspect of the black experience, or perhaps some other thing I can't quite confer from the title
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:54pm Flash Strap:

it's certainly very gamelan in some respects
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:54pm Flash Strap:

but also very trainlike
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/21/16 8:55pm northguineahills:

I forgot to say hello, been here back and forth since 8. Thanks!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 8:57pm Flash Strap:

well, hello NGH, glad to have had you all this time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/21/16 8:59pm coelacanth:

the skeleton is totally out of time, but is really into the music.
...as a child there was a large (gradually toward giant) hole in the wall right by my bed and i used to play the lathwork.
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 9:01pm Flash Strap:

wow – you WERE that skeleton.

There's some real spittoon and radiator sounds on this track
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 9:01pm Doug Schulkind:

This is making me enjoyful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/21/16 9:02pm coelacanth:

some were "dead", but others would make a subtle "boing" kind of sound -and those each had different tones.
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 9:03pm Flash Strap:

I though some of this stuff might be up your drummer's alley, Doug
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/21/16 9:03pm coelacanth:

...but between that and the old radiator i'd be on the radiator!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 9:03pm Drummer Sally:

I like it, too!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 9:05pm Flash Strap:

Ho ho ho

that's the laugh i made when i understood Drummer Sally. Full-on HOHOHO
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 9:07pm Flash Strap:

@C: no spittoon for you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/21/16 9:09pm coelacanth:

judging by the 2 sets that i've been here for i guess that i missed some amazingness that came before...and i'm psyched to here all this at home on a good stereo over the weekend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/21/16 9:10pm coelacanth:

Flash, i'll use that for accents- from the outside,if you don't mind!
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 9:11pm Flash Strap:

fine with me. no sloshing on the floor, even if it is a skeleton's flophouse
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/21/16 9:11pm coelacanth:

(and - can you assure me it's not a chamber pot?)
Avatar Thu. 1/21/16 9:12pm Flash Strap:

aha. I cannot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/21/16 9:13pm coelacanth:

...i'll play that with a long stick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/21/16 9:14pm hyde:

aww, it's over. thanks for the tunes!
