Pop music, speeches, live phone calls and spontaneous monologues become ambient loopy layered threads riding the liminal spaces between waking and dreaming. (Visit homepage.)

Your ripples explode with flashlights?
Avatar 5:10pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hi, gloomsday! Here you are.
Avatar 5:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Welcome, Sandra! It's an Austin one this week. Filling in for Around the Town Sounds. Was only allowed to use Austin artists as my live remix sources.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm gloomsday:

this is beautiful so far :)
  5:12pm Sandra:

oh wow. well I'm sure you'll do it well.
Avatar 5:14pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yes, I will have are going am to'ing.
Avatar 5:19pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oops it's not 23 years anymore
  5:21pm Bliss:

Had you been thinking about this project for long before you did the first show?
Avatar 5:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Nope, but I'd been doing it (combining records and TV's and noises and). But it didn't begin until the moment it did, with not one second of forethought. It was a Bill Cosby record skipping that pushed me over into knowing what was now happening.
Avatar 5:25pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

In the college dorm I used to attempt to remix and combine what people were playing from their rooms by adding my own stuff strategically from my room.
  5:26pm Bliss:

That's funny.
Avatar 5:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Wes Anderson's voice here, from Rushmore, because he went to college in Austin, so I thought it counted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm gloomsday:

totally counts! i love it.
Avatar 5:32pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Also found a way to sneak Alan Watts in, since he's sampled by this Austin act
  5:39pm stonepossibly:

hi here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm gloomsday:

this is one of the most soothing afternoons i've had in a while, largely thanks to this show. i'm really feeling this <3
Avatar 5:43pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hi, possibleing
Avatar 5:45pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

They're used to backannouncing in this slot so I had to do it. Never feels right!
Avatar 5:48pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'm glad, gloomspossibly
Avatar 5:48pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Umm don't call the # in 2018
Avatar 5:50pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The timeslot I was filling in for normally played exclusively local artists. Usually the whole track, all by itself!
Avatar 5:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I even had to play promos and underwriting spots IN THE MIDDLE of the collage
Avatar 5:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

WHOOPS this is the unedited version. how the heck did that happen
Avatar 5:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The copy I previewed 5 minutes before the show removed that commercial bit which is hopefully for a business that has long since gone under
Avatar 5:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Mmm lots of copies of drums
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Carmichael:

Heya Kenzo and past people presently here or not.

I miss having only a 30-minute slot
Avatar 6:24pm still b/p:

Hm. Austin. Made me check when “Slackers” was made. Its date gave me a “whoa” moment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm coelacanth∅:

you could play an hour-long drone for an hour and a 1/2, then you'll have a 30-minute slot. problem solved
Avatar 6:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I wouldn't sit still for that hour and a 1/2. That's how my show turned into this in the first place. Wait 3 minutes for a track to end???
Avatar 6:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Welcome, Rosalie, still b/p, coelacanth0
Avatar 6:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Austin was very slackery
Avatar 6:36pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Explosions in the Sky + Gwyneth Paltrow
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm coelacanth∅:

you could go have dinner... or practice your crossbow, or write a coloring book, or paint your car, or knit an elephant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm gloomsday:

that explosions in the sky!!
Avatar 6:44pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Little clips looped, various, backwards and forwards
Avatar 6:44pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

What would I do with the extra time after knitting the elephant is done?
Avatar 6:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Apparently through an chamber filter too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm coelacanth∅:

it's exploded beyond its original space, into the sky
