A live, improvised sound collage experiment, going back 28 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. [On hiatus.] (Visit homepage.)

tuesday comes before wednesday, and wednesday comes before tuesday, and tuesday comes after wednesday, and wednesday comes after tuesday, and whatever comes next in a pattern is simply what comes next in the pattern. whatever you choose is therefore the right answer in terms of what comes next.

I really enjoyed coding when I was a teen but then I went into a visual art path and found it difficult to do both.. I have always tinkered with it. Been more interested/serious about it the last few years - I've been enjoying it more than drawing hahah

You can get some Quick and Dirty art/graphic results with Processing, which is a wrapper over Java.

a request for some kind of looping of the track "It's You" by Animal Collective. I'm on the wtju stream though so I wonder what that'll mean...
  3:51pm

yeh I was thinking of playing with processing again. I'm really into this virtual console system called pico-8 right now. It's lua based - and you've only got like 32k to play with

FYI, the WTJU stream is playing something different than today's WFMU live version. So, switch on over to the WFMU player on this page at 4pm and hear what you missed!

I think I hurt myself listening to the 24hr
Avatar 4:08pm
Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I think I loved the first hour. Was abruptly woken from the dreamstate by tech issue at WTJU which led to this Xanadu moment. I recovered in a little while and did a very different thing for the rest thereafter. I can't wait to hear the first hour again and see if they seem connected.
Avatar 4:09pm
Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Xanadu loops in first hour, I can't wait
Avatar 4:09pm
Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

One of my possible plans had been to air the two hours out of order, in which case right now we'd both be listening to hour 1.
Avatar 4:11pm
Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Thanks to Otis for sending the medley to me in the midst of the show, used it as emergency blanket as I transitioned
Avatar 4:12pm
Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Sorry, too late for Animal Collective, but maybe I played it 15 years ago when you were listening half an hour ago?
Avatar 4:13pm
Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

By coincidence, the old show they randomly picked to play of mine had Alan Watts and I happened to fade that in at some point
