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.

It's my curse in life.
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 8:22pm Flash Strap:

this LP reminds me somewhat of the Yusef Lateef / Martin Denny strategy of adding an unexpected instrument to the ensemble and showcasing it – not quite as rich as either Denny or Lateef but it's sort of the big trick of exotic/psychedelic music
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 8:24pm geezerette:

Has Dutour scored films?
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 8:25pm Flash Strap:

of course it's also a mainstay of library music to have multiples of the same groove with different lead instruments subbed in, or to have "underscores" where the leads are taken out altogether
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 8:26pm Flash Strap:

@G: not sure if he has any original soundtracks to his name, but his library themes have definitely been used in things

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:01pm melinda:

@Flash totally. I need more in my collection. It's especially fun to play in the store where I work. I like the idea of people walking into a movie they didn't know they were going to be in.
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:02pm geezerette:

this is gorgeous. And over the top.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:03pm quinn:

@melinda i want to walk in to your store
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:03pm geezerette:

Melinda, those people are lucky!
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:03pm Flash Strap:

@Melinda- i totally agree, i think about music like that all the time and i really enjoy how stimulating that approach can be
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:04pm Flash Strap:

Hi Quinn!

and i agree, sounds like I want to walk into that store!
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:07pm Franco Twinkie:

Hi Melinda. Are you in stormland?
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:07pm geezerette:

I've heard a lot of bad library music. This is the creme.
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:09pm Flash Strap:

yeah you have to wade through a lot of bad or just bland stuff but the treasure is there and it is rich
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:10pm coelacanth∅:

okay it's settled. we all meet in melinda's store at 11.11 am tomorrow. everybody good?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:10pm chresti:

I like to have this playing where I work too!
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:11pm Flash Strap:

i have a few more library shows in the works for the near future, once I get the various series a bit more complete: Telecineradio/TVMusic (Chappell); Cenacolo, Tele Music, Coloursound, Studio G
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:11pm melinda:

hi Franco! No storm here, though there is a high surf advisory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:12pm chresti:

I'm in! Melinda's store!
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:13pm Franco Twinkie:

So right you are, Flash. If I could just make myself get rid of all the bland records in my collection, maybe I could walk through the living room without tripping and falling on my face.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:13pm chresti:

Flash- you are a fine curator of library music!
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:15pm Flash Strap:

Ah, thank you Chresti! I do try rather hard to be
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:15pm Franco Twinkie:

Who lives in Mass? Are things really exploding all over the place?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:15pm chresti:

@Franco: Or install shelves
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:16pm Flash Strap:

it's hard with library stuff Franco, because the treasure is right alongside the bland on the same records pretty regularly
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:16pm melinda:

We have tiny cheap speakers at the store so I think everyone would be underwhelmed, actually. But what's nice about good library music is that it is probably unexpected music, yet unlikely to provoke a negative response (this has happened before) since it is intentional background.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:17pm chresti:

Labor intensive @Flash
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:19pm chresti:

We'll bring a sound system!
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:19pm Flash Strap:

that's how it sneaks in! very cool, Melinda
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:21pm chresti:

customers that are sharp listeners pick up on it, I bet
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:21pm melinda:

I googled the Boston explosions and it sounds horrible. But with this music as a backdrop it didn't quite sink in! That's the power of library music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:24pm coelacanth∅:

chresti (@9.19) haha!
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:24pm Franco Twinkie:

Programming through repetition. When I was teenager my sister and myself would play the Mothers of Invention until my mom would sing along, then catch herself and say "Turn that crap off!"
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:25pm Flash Strap:

selections from vol. 17 courtesy the drummer stream's own Tony Coulter, the only person in the world who seems to have this record and who ripped to tracks for us tonight

Big sincere thank you to Tony! These are easily two of the best selections of the evening
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:25pm Flash Strap:

that's hilarious, what Mothers album?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:26pm coelacanth∅:

have to reboot my computer. i put it in sleep mode earlier, as an experiment. it has nightmares i guess then takes it out on me. see yin 10-15
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:26pm melinda:

I don't know if much of what I have might qualify as library music but I have some good film music and other instrumentals. The other day I was playing Herb Alpert's Rise, and a lady commented that it sounded like 007 music, which it did. And I made a mental note to seek out more atmospheric instrumentals.
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:27pm Flash Strap:

pretty good resource right here: librarymusic.eklablog.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:28pm melinda:

These are great, indeed. Thanks, Tony!

Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:29pm Flash Strap:

that;s funny to imagine Franco
  Thu. 9/13/18 9:35pm Dean:

Damn. Wanted to hear v.15.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:35pm coelacanth∅:

i don't know if i have any "library music". if the record or album cover doesn't say "library music" on it, i wouldn't know.
  Thu. 9/13/18 9:36pm Dean:

Discogs has four copies of v.15 for sale: https://www.discogs.com/sell/release/11051853?ev=rb
  Thu. 9/13/18 9:40pm Dean:

Oh, wait. You're after v.14.
  Thu. 9/13/18 9:41pm Dean:

...in which case, even more: https://www.discogs.com/sell/release/1997740?ev=rb
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:41pm melinda:

@coel I use the term broadly, not very good at identifying it either.
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:43pm Flash Strap:

Hi Dean! yeah man I don't have the bread to buy every last thing I want to play on this show, sadly. sometimes i gotta rely on the kindness of strangers, so to speak
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:44pm Flash Strap:

@C. : a lot of times you can just go by the label
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:44pm coelacanth∅:

i understand the concept; but without researching particular artists &/or labels how am i to tell whether it's library music or just an artist that doesn't know that his or her music sounds generic?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:45pm coelacanth∅:

(or maybe does)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:48pm Little Danny:

Jesus those volumes get WAY OUT
  Thu. 9/13/18 9:48pm Dean:

For sure. Same predicament here. There are those occasions when I force my kids to go without dinner, because, well, priorities. But completing a collection would weigh heavily in favor of going for one title over another.

I've always assumed library music was composed and recorded to market to industries seeking royalty-free "background" music. In essence they stocked a "library" of tracks for those industries.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:48pm coelacanth∅:

so - why would this track be called library music? just because it was commissioned?
i mean it's far more interesting than 1/2 the music most people "listen" to i think.
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:49pm Flash Strap:

it's pretty difficult unless you have a working knowledge of the labels, their sensibilities, and the recurring artists you gravitate towards (and their pseudonyms). but it's not that hard after a little while of exploring, honestly
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:49pm Flash Strap:

that's precisely the case, Dean. well-put
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:50pm Flash Strap:

@C.: yeah it has to do with the patronage structure of the "library" label. they commission it, but often the artists have the freedom to do what interests them
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:51pm Flash Strap:

this one is fire
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:52pm TDK60:

signed in...I see talk of "library music" I know little so I'll listen..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:53pm coelacanth∅:

right okay. like an artist might make something pretty far out, and market it as "something you might want for a wild party scene in your film"...(etc)
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:53pm Flash Strap:

hi TDK!
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:53pm geezerette:

Wonderful show,Evan. Thanks so much!

Good evening, all!
  Thu. 9/13/18 9:53pm Dean:

A neighbor of mine has what I believe is an extremely large collection of library music. I think he's been at it for quite some time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:54pm melinda:

@coel yeah, I think I've used the term incorrectly because the interestingness of the sound (or lack thereof) isn't a giveaway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:55pm coelacanth∅:

is there no sound? or is that it for my laptop?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:55pm melinda:

I learned the term right here on this show, and it was one of the things that drew me in.
Avatar Thu. 9/13/18 9:55pm Flash Strap:

@C: yeah. the label's whole purpose is to take those recordings and market them to productions, and since some productions need that wild stuff, from industrial films to psych freakouts in hippie tv shows or b-movies, they have room for that too. it;s super market commercialism, but also not that unlike the pure music research of something like Bell laboratories
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:55pm melinda:

Love this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:56pm Little Danny:

Evan might vouch better for this, but in my opinion library collectors are the most intense cats in the collector game
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:57pm TDK60:

...hadn't heard of this term till recently, here at Woofmoo U. of course. Is there a Quiz at the end tonight?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:57pm coelacanth∅:

hey the standells did the munsters theme. gotta pay the bills.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:57pm Little Danny:

they are super intense, definitely would view me as an absurd dilettante. they are by turns wondrously magnanimous and jealously protective
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/13/18 9:58pm melinda:

Intense in what way?
  Thu. 9/13/18 10:00pm Dean:

For intensity of collecting, I'd have to nominate my high school pal who took graveyard shift jobs in college during the school year to fund his habit. His focus, if you can call it that, was European progressive rock, punk, and metal, beginning in the mid-'70s. He parlayed his connections with LA area record stores into a business run on eBay. Essentially, he bought CDs by the pound from retailers, then very successfully auctioned them off on eBay.
