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.

what wonders lie waiting in these anonymous-looking LPs? tonight we head into the stacks and do some library-digging in the CAM section

totalmente nuevo para mi
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:08pm Flash Strap:

NGH! Good, that is my hope
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 6/29/17 7:09pm doctorjazz:

This reminds me of a track on the first (Al Kooper lead) Blood Sweat and Tears album, "I Can't Quit Her". Bet they had that in mind (that has vocals).
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:09pm Flash Strap:

this is such a classic sound, here
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:11pm Flash Strap:

I'll have to check that out and do some comparing
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:19pm Flash Strap:

this is one of the weirdest records out there, more from this later
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:19pm geezerette:

Hi Evan and all!
Titou's Bells was enchanting. :)
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:20pm hyde:

ah, finally. that part of the developing world that is upstate NY has at last deigned to give me internet so that i can listen to the show. i hope i didn't miss much.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:20pm Flash Strap:

Geezerette! New avatar! Happy to see you!

Hi Hyde! you missed actual magic, but there's much more to come
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:21pm Flash Strap:

and I feel your internet pain, brother
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:22pm hyde:

it's terrible! i live a two hour drive from nyc and the electric/internet here is a shambles
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:23pm geezerette:

Hey Hyde!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:23pm Flash Strap:

the same for me, and I am less than 20 minutes from Durham, which is rigged up with google fiber & AT&T fiber
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:23pm hyde:

hiya geez!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:25pm hyde:

oooh, Decerf. i love Decerf.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:25pm Flash Strap:

ah, well you might enjoy the next set
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:38pm Flash Strap:

i L O V E this track
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:43pm Flash Strap:

Decerf is one of the all-time great synthi-boys of library

but we're definitely going to hear some other major contenders tonight
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:46pm Flash Strap:

cool voice effect
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 7:55pm Flash Strap:

after this, one of my most cherished Decerf tracks, and then on to new business
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:02pm Flash Strap:

the moog on this is good, but it's the nasty electric guitar&harpsichord that make it
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 6/29/17 8:02pm melinda:

hi explorers!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:02pm hyde:

still here! was showering.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:02pm Flash Strap:

think i heard a theremin too
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:03pm hyde:

hiya melinda!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:04pm Flash Strap:

Hi Melinda! How are ya comrade

you do your thing, Hyde, I'm just here to lay down the soundtrack
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:06pm Flash Strap:

this is less like music than like something you try to remember after hearing it in a dream
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:07pm hyde:

well, as delineated on Bodega Pop last nite, soon i will be out in the yard watching fireflies with this as the soundtrack
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:08pm Flash Strap:

sorta sounds like that last track on the first Neu! album

ah, Hyde, perfect! that's what I'd be doing too if I could broadcast from there
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:11pm hyde:

i don't like being here all that much, but i do love firefly season.

last night something large was crashing around in the woods while i did the firefly thing. it was probably a deer, but i *did* find a giant black bear stool the last time i cut my lawn. soooooo....
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:12pm Flash Strap:

your life and my life sound veeery similar right now, my man
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:13pm Little Danny:

greetings Flash and all!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:14pm hyde:

too damned rustic. i need to get back to urbanity
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:14pm Flash Strap:

LD! Greetings yourself!

Did you SEE that last Twin Peaks, bro? Holy Shiiiiiiiiiit
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:15pm hyde:

LD!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:16pm Flash Strap:

i am torn between the two worlds, hyde, like the cover of Neil Young's first solo album
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:16pm hyde:

sigh, i know the feeling
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 6/29/17 8:18pm melinda:

I felt torn between rustic and urban, too, when I lived in the country. I've found that being in a small city neighborhood with yard and trees is a decent compromise.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:21pm Little Danny:

Right back atcha Hyde & Flash!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:21pm hyde:

@melinda yes!all i really want is a location where i can set up a microenvironment for pollinators and birds that's also close enough to the attractions of a real city
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:21pm Little Danny:

@flash re: TP. Indeed I did. So beautiful
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 6/29/17 8:26pm melinda:

@hyde that sounds about right. I did miss the country for a while after moving, but I've never felt the need to move back. Lack of cultural stimulation, variety of people, interesting buildings and other features of built environment...no thanks.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:27pm Little Danny:

Nicely said about these titles, Flash
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:28pm northguineahills:

Wasn't the reason behind library records is that companies would record libraries of sound for TV programs/docs/radio plays and the titles would give the curator of said shows and idea what moments would go w/ what sound?
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:31pm hyde:

@melinda yep, exactly. that is why i am plotting my escape.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:32pm Flash Strap:

@NGH: yeah, exactly!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:32pm hyde:

this set is going to make me lament that i don't have those Umiliani comps from the blog on this computer, isn't it
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:34pm northguineahills:

Now that I have a job, I need to find a place to live. Looking for a place close enough to be walking distance from the downtown, but far enough away from the students. Only a 30-60 minute drive to many wilderness experiences. Going to be different then Brooklyn.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:35pm Flash Strap:

maybe so, but it'll definitely be Umiliani in a pretty different mode, much more film-jazzy

you can really hear his Ellingtonian influences on this one
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:35pm northguineahills:

A little town (by NYC standards) w/ city accouterments, and mostly wilderness around it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 6/29/17 8:36pm melinda:

@ngh that's the kind of thing you can often achieve in a college town. I did that when I lived in Iowa City for the last year or so.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:36pm Flash Strap:

that sounds pretty great
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:38pm hyde:

@ngh yeah, that sounds ideal. a city where you can get out to the (scare quotes!) "wilderness kind of quick
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:46pm Flash Strap:

This is a pretty star-studded compilation library LP with a bunch of different artists, I always wondered if it was really recorded in 1972 or just a collection of earlier sessions. could go either way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/29/17 8:48pm coelacanth∅:

olá Evan e Exploradors
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:49pm hyde:

i'm convinced that someone needs to interview all the surviving Italian women who did the wordless vocals on all these records before it's too late
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:49pm Flash Strap:

Coelacanth! olåååå
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:50pm Flash Strap:

seriously, Hyde. would be earth-shattering, imo
  Thu. 6/29/17 8:50pm ?:

Yo explorers!
Production music libraries are alive and well. My wife the video editor uses 'em all the time. Once we were watching a network tv comedy and they were using the exact track she had recently used.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:52pm Flash Strap:

Hi Mysterion! Indeed they are

what was the show, what was the company?
  Thu. 6/29/17 8:54pm MrFab:

Oops, I'm Mr "?" btw.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:54pm Flash Strap:

some of the classic companies are still kickin, long unbroken lineages. many are gone now. sometimes I hear the oldies in places you wouldn't expect too
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 8:56pm Flash Strap:

Oh, Mr. Fab! welcome, esteemed comrade! always wonderful to see you
  Thu. 6/29/17 8:57pm billyiswilliam:

This is making my night!

Billyiswilliam! you just made mine!
  Thu. 6/29/17 8:59pm MrFab:

Heyya! Wasn't one of the classic companies - we have plenty of such groups here in LA. Library music is used so often it's kind of invisible.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:01pm Flash Strap:

pretty cool cover on this single: img.discogs.com...
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:06pm Flash Strap:

This one is pretty outstanding as well: 1.bp.blogspot.com...
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:06pm Flash Strap:

That makes sense, Fab
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:10pm Flash Strap:

this is one of the earliest Giombini efforts from what I can tell. his later stuff, which we'll get to, is pretty wild
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:10pm geezerette:

crazy outfit. definitely NOT, "something more comfortable".
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:12pm Doug Schulkind:

Oh such sublimity is this Room!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:13pm Flash Strap:

@G: seriously! I can't tell if that's even a real person, looks like a Harryhausen miniature. The film is a documentary though
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:14pm Flash Strap:

Doubly so, now that you're here! Or should I say, Dougly so?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 6/29/17 9:15pm melinda:

@geeze: strapless zinnia boob cups are my go-to loungewear!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:17pm Flash Strap:

who among us wouldn't say the same?
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:20pm geezerette:

What does it document?! Ithought Harryhausen also; combination of scale and improbable clay-like greenish mud color.

Ha ha,Melinda!!! There used to be a Ralph's Market on Sunset Blvd. where a surprising number of shoppers seemed to order from the same catalogue!
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:27pm Flash Strap:

my guess is that it's one of those "documentaries" about various sex workers and strip clubs, but that's just a hunch
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:30pm Flash Strap:

love the night sounds here
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:32pm hyde:

well, the fireflies are thick tonight and i heard crashing in the underbrush again, but this time it was def. a deer because the young buck snorted at me
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:33pm Flash Strap:

chase him down, invite him to listen in
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:35pm Flash Strap:

weird evocation of Atlantis, this
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:38pm geezerette:

Can something be disturbingly calming? Cause everything in this set is.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:39pm northguineahills:

hyde, sounds like a weird euphemism through a Terrence McKenna prism....
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:40pm geezerette:

Hyde, I've only seen fireflies once but that's one of the most beautiful things ever.

@geeze I know what you mean.
@ngh hahaha

hyde is speaking in code again.
Avatar Thu. 6/29/17 9:41pm Flash Strap:

@G: the next album I'll play from is very similar in sound, and is sort of nominally lullaby or children's music themed – totally weird mix of disturning and calming, I guess a lot like Raymond Scott's Soothing Sounds for Baby
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/29/17 9:42pm coelacanth∅:

i swerved my car to miss a firefly directly in my path earlier. i wonder if a cop had seen that if heshe would've pulled me over for it.

"Terence McKenna prism",nice!
I want one!

Great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/29/17 9:56pm coelacanth∅:

Rob Gonsalves' optical illusion nowhere near as obvious in his firefly painting, but beautiful none the less. (i interpret it as they are releasing the fireflies into the night, which then become stars.)
