Ridgewood Radio features live sets by adventurous bands and experimental musicians, recorded at clubs and galleries running along the L-train corridor through Brooklyn and Queens from Williamsburg to the Rockaways. It is produced by David Weinstein and Outpost Artists Resources operating out of the blossoming Ridgewood neighborhood, where you'll find more yellow bricks than on the road to Oz and the cemetery of your choice is never more than a few blocks from home.

Hey all. Back all refreshed and loaded with goodies imported from Chicago!

Good afternoon David, Ruth, and Ridgewood people

I can't separate out viola/trombone/guitar/harmonica, wild!

Lovely drone!

Somewhere b/tn Alvin Lucier and Eliane Radigue.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:30pm weinstein:

I mixed the room mics with the board feed but heavier on room than I usually do. The room added a lot as is usually the case with this kind of acoustic phenom.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:32pm Webhamster Henry:

I'm getting a really good standing wave here in the apartment... as I walk around, I get different phases.
Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 3:33pm northguineahills:

Now I just need to walk through and around my earbuds.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:34pm weinstein:

I think you are going to need a longer cable.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:36pm fred:

@Webhamster Henry: I used to do the same thing at harsh noise wall shows
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:39pm Webhamster Henry:

It's a little too noisy now, but with purer tones, it's a pretty engaging reality!
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:44pm fred:

I think the best such experience I had was at a Phill Niblock show, in a gothic church
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:46pm Webhamster Henry:

The dronefest in Hudson is pretty good, but I of course do a lot of drones at home.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:51pm weinstein:

And Niblock wrote a pice or two for David First, and I love that work, but have to mention MaryAnn Amacher here.
Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 3:55pm northguineahills:

I love MaryAnn's work. Does Phil still do his loft shows?
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 3:59pm fred:

I never heard her work, but I guess I'd be disappointed: there's not much left of my left ear after six surgeries
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:01pm weinstein:

Phill does his bi-annual 6 hours on the solstices but not at the Centre Street loft any more. Last few at Roulette.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:07pm weinstein:

And Fred, yipes. Well, MaryAnn is gone and her work kind of went with her because it was so extreme and linked to her process.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:10pm Webhamster Henry:

Well, work is continuing apace on fixing up Maryanne's decrepit old house here in Kingston. There's supposed to be a mini museum in there about her, but I'm not sure how that could be presented! Especially if most of the rest of of the place is to be a B&B!

Where at 56 Bogart is the drawing/storytelling thing? That's this Sat.? Got a link?
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:25pm Webhamster Henry:

I'm a big fan of Text-Sound Texts, which I think is now available on archive.org. archive.org...

Here's the press release for Matt Freedman & Tim Spelios, the gallery is Studio10:

Bill Madlock sang the stretch at Wrigley last night.

Thanks DW!
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:29pm fred:

1988... The year The Naked Gun was released. Is Enrico Palazzo featured on this?
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:31pm weinstein:

I went to Wrigley on my trip! It's not totally ruined!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 4:33pm Uncle Michael:

It's not slightly ruined!
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:34pm weinstein:

Regarding the Amacher legacy... there are a lot of odd noises emanating in her absence...
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:35pm fred:

I've never seen a baseball game. But I did make a concerted effort to follow baseball for a couple of years or so, and to learn some of the rules, because the American language is full of baseball references (even more than to football)
  Wed. 8/16/17 4:36pm Dean:

WorldCat shows two holding libraries for this recording. Bates College has it on cassette. Rensselaer Polytechnic has it on VHS.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:36pm weinstein:

Regarding Wrigley... I thought I might feel sad or sorry to see all the new construction. But I was happy as ever just being there. No problem.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:37pm Webhamster Henry:

I like how there's so little baseball in this piece .. just baseball epiphenomena!
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:37pm weinstein:

Kostelanetz collaborated with an animator to make a video version. It's pretty abstract.
  Wed. 8/16/17 4:38pm Dean:

The RPI VHS is described in the catalog notes, "This is an audio-only VHS tape of crowd sounds from a baseball game."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 4:38pm Uncle Michael:

Don Deckinger...threw the '85 series to the Royals.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:40pm fred:

@Webhamster Henry: I was told by an American coworker that there is actually very little baseball in a baseball game, so maybe that's a representative ratio
  Wed. 8/16/17 4:41pm Dean:

That hyper-reverb PA announcement was pure Firesign Theater.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:43pm Webhamster Henry:

I like that, in theory, a baseball game can go on forever in extra innings.
Here's Kostelanetz on this opera a little, recently published, probably why he handed David this cassette! www.newenglishreview.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 4:46pm Uncle Michael:

My dad is off to the Dodgers game tonight...1.5 hours...26 stops on a bus from Santa Monica.
  Wed. 8/16/17 4:47pm Dean:

The 3,229th inning stretch!
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:47pm fred:

I just have to clicky-star this
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 4:48pm Uncle Michael:

What game were you at Wrigley for, David?

Hi Ridgewood friends! Coming up on this Drummer stream in just 10 minutes: Richly lovely layered sound collage dreams. Do come along! wfmu.org...
Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 4:49pm northguineahills:

I thought it was Wrigley for a second as I heard the crowd say, "throw it back" (a while back in the piece).
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:51pm weinstein:

Cubs-Washington Aug 5 I think. Cubs win! Cubs win!
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:52pm Webhamster Henry:

I think you can keep hitting foul balls and never get struck out either. When cybernetic designated hitters are allowed, games may never end!
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:52pm weinstein:

The "throw is back" tradition started later than '88 I believe.

Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:53pm weinstein:

Fred, the existential, minimalist, mindfulness aspect of this game could keep me gabbing with you for days. Maybe just listen to George Carlin on the subject.
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 4:54pm fred:

I'm familiar with his baseball vs football piece
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/16/17 4:56pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks, David!
