A live, improvised sound collage experiment, going back 26 years, weaving mesmerizing new soundscapes from found and collected materials right in the present moment.
Pop music, speeches, live phone calls and spontaneous monologues become ambient loopy layered threads riding the liminal spaces between waking and dreaming. (Visit homepage.)

I figured out that pledge means donation and not some wooden furniture cleaner.

All those Ken's Last Ever pledgers get the fuzzy scrubber icon AT NO ADDITIONAL FUZZ

I'm breaking my own rule by not listening on headphones or high-quality speakers and I'm hastening to fix this because it changes everything...

Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Rand al'Thor:

Magical Mystery Collage.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 6:01pm ParUbi:

The film, Surviving Desire. Hal Hartley. I think.
  6:01pm chresti Los Angeles:

I’ll be switching to earbuds soon as they’re charged up
Avatar 6:01pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

That is the film. It has a dance.
Avatar 6:02pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Finally got my speakers going and wheeeeew now it's spacious like it should be.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 6:02pm ParUbi:

Right, I should do that.
Avatar 6:04pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It's sinful to listen to produced music on bad speakers and especially for anything with subtlety
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Rich in Washington:

I'm listening on two identical model bookshelf stereos on opposite ends of the room.
Avatar 6:05pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

You pass
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Rich in Washington:

I have my computer running into a little mixer with one stereo connected to its monitor buss and the other the main out. I use on of the units to sort of push more bass than the main one, and it's on the other end of the room.
Avatar 6:06pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Wow I almost gave out my domain name that I didn't have yet
Avatar 6:08pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Raising Arizona - Dream of the Future

Barry Lyndon used this Handel piece, right?
Avatar 6:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Kubrick's Barry Lyndon, indeed. As depicted. What an epic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Carmichael:

Onomatopoeia, every time I see ya.
Avatar 6:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The style is different but the Winamp is the same
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Carmichael:

Qbert, Pacman, perhaps even Missile Command. And some Williams arcade game sounds as well, like Defender or Stargate.
  6:28pm chresti Los Angeles:

Is this the scene in the video parlor?
Avatar 6:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Q*Bert for sure...I've already forgotten the sounds from those seconds ago.
Avatar 6:31pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Video parlor, ha

Brad Fiedel's Terminator
Avatar 6:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Williams arcade sounds were great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Carmichael:

This sounds like Bill Murray's speech to the nerds in Meatballs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Carmichael:

Yes they were, Kenzo!
Avatar 6:42pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

John Belushi's speech in Animal House

Mission accomplice
Avatar 6:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It was the first TV show I ever watched and realized was a TV show.
Avatar 6:47pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I realized that these two singing women weren't in my living room and that they had made me thought that they were, and that revelation surely shaped everything else to come.
Avatar 6:47pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So here I am today making you think my brainworms are in your room and that everything is happening at once and that it is scary and that it is OK.
Avatar 6:48pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Big Terminator finale
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Rich in Washington:

I wish that was the Terminator finale! They made like 7 or 8 of those.

Time travel movies have a big weakness with finality
Avatar 6:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Ha, only using music from the first one, thanks
Avatar 6:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@ParUbi you mean time travel sequels
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 6:52pm ParUbi:

There's no end to them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Rich in Washington:

Has anyone had fun with the time travel warfare thing yet, like it starts out with the basic Ellison scenario then just goes crazy with people getting preemptively assassinated left and right every couple of seconds, people just vanishing, etc.
Avatar 6:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Thanks for the additional pledge, chresti! Delights
Avatar 6:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Rich I hoped so
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 6:59pm ParUbi:

Or the monuments of victory precede the war
  6:59pm chresti Los Angeles:

Time travel warfare television series?
