A live, improvised sound collage experiment, going back 27 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.)

Oh hi
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:01pm Bas NL:

Hi Kenzo! Eerie empty board..
Avatar 3:03pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yeah the cleaners finally showed up
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:04pm Bas NL:

Does that mean i'm listening NOW?
Avatar 3:04pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Until 7 o'clock!
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:05pm Bas NL:

Honored! :)
Avatar 3:05pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(so he said, without timezone mooring)
Avatar 3:07pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The playlist for this one is also lost
Avatar 3:08pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Looks like my hard drive crashed a few days after this show, so maybe that's why
Avatar 3:08pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh and I broke my foot
Avatar 3:09pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh and I was about to move across the country
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:09pm Bas NL:

I've been grating my brain of the opening tune.. it was so familiar. And ouch! Not too bad, i hope?
Avatar 3:09pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Uh oh, my internet is flaky. I assume I've been dropping out?
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:10pm Bas NL:

Short drops only.
Avatar 3:10pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

By opening tune, do you mean the one that's still underneath everything? Sounds like Moby to me
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:12pm Bas NL:

Right! Moby! But i think he borrowed it from Klaus Schulze.
Avatar 3:13pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Ahhh
Avatar 3:14pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

In the background off mic, a young child is taking the first academic exam of her life
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:15pm Bas NL:

Best of luck on the exam to her!
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:16pm Bas NL:

(I won't go to the breaking legs area..)
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:18pm Bas NL:

Great mix, this.
Avatar 3:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Really glad you like! I asked her what the test was like and she made an interesting growling gurgle
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:31pm Bas NL:

Growling gurgle sounds gruelling.
Avatar 3:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This show was an hour. I like that length. There can be one extended theme, with these subthemes in different zones, and often the second half would open up to phone calls
Avatar 3:35pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

But that's an after-the-fact observation. I never come in with a plan or structure. Sometimes I come in with a semi-plan but then it gets abandoned 1 minute before showtime
Avatar 3:36pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I guess "Better Off Dead (Ronald Reagan)" is an exception - came in with Ronald Reagan theme, executed it
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:36pm Bas NL:

Would it be possible to phone in on Give the Drummer Radio?
Avatar 3:36pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I could set something up but just haven't
Avatar 3:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Wow I can't believe this had been lost for so long (first unearthed in 2018), it's so good
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:41pm Bas NL:

*nod*, it's fantastic!
Avatar 3:43pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I think I'll pair it with Pure Imagination
  3:45pm ?:

this is โคโคโค!
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:45pm Bas NL:

Only way to go.
Avatar 3:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Now I shall ambitiously attempt to remaster Pure Imagination in a hurry. I have 10 minutes to get it done.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:47pm Bas NL:

Time for a growling gurgle for sure.
Avatar 3:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Remastering without being able to listen to what I'm doing, this'll be good.
Avatar 3:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

ganza gonza, how do you say it?
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 3:53pm Bas NL:

You got my ears.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:01pm Bas NL:

Granulized vinyl loop?
  4:02pm ?:

my radio wont turn inside out!!!! help!!
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:02pm Bas NL:

Ahhh! A Wonka reference!
Avatar 4:03pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

? I will turn you inside out
  4:04pm ?:

๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ!
Avatar 4:05pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yeah I wonder what that clickety pop was
Avatar 4:06pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Whoa it's music from the mid-80's 8-bit videogame Psi 5 Trading Company
Avatar 4:07pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Ultima III?
Avatar 4:08pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Another lost-playlist one
  4:08pm ?:

very cool!!
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:09pm Bas NL:

Again a great pick. Fantastic sounds. I'm afraid i don't know too many video game sounds..
Avatar 4:09pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Bright Eyes loops, Ronald Reagan, C64 games, Willy Wonka, and that's all I know
Avatar 4:10pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh it's Chut
Avatar 4:13pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh an accidental timely ode to Rumsfeld
  4:14pm ?:

lol nice
Avatar 4:15pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

BTW I'm glad you're here, ?
Avatar 4:16pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

No real relation between videogames of today and the brief period in the early 80's when there was a massive largely-uncontrolled burst of creativity, which also generated a lot of interesting music
Avatar 4:18pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Another hard drive failure followed this show, too
  4:18pm ?:

aww ty ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿงก im glad to be here!! hope that drive had a backup!
Avatar 4:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yeah, stacks of backups everywhere, but recovery was never quick.
  4:24pm ?:

ah goody, very tru tho
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:24pm Bas NL:

I've done some hard drive recovery over the years. Greatest feat was restoring half a million dollars worth of NOAA satellite imagery data.
Avatar 4:25pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Niiiiiiiiice
  4:25pm ?:

๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ!!! jesus
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:25pm Bas NL:

There was no backup... go figure..
Avatar 4:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I lost the source recordings of a couple of years of radio shows, but got them all back after collaborating with a drive recovery tool author to improve the tool and get me my files back, whew
Avatar 4:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

And I remember back in Commodore 64 days having to flip sector by sector through my floppy disks to piece things back together. Directories frequently got corrupted
Avatar 4:28pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

oh yeah and overriding bad checksums
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:28pm Bas NL:

Floppies where a sign of worse to come. :|
Avatar 4:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Zip disks! But yeah nothing beats "cloud storage" for sudden and complete loss of massive amounts of data, yay modern society
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:30pm Bas NL:

On old gear nowadays programmable chips start to fail..
  4:30pm ?:

wonkaaa โค
Avatar 4:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Write once Read a few times
  4:31pm ?:

i got a 5.25" HDD that gave up the ghosts a year ago, now just makes clicking sounds and wont boot. i was thinking of just trying the silly "put it in the freezer" trick for the heck of it. ๐Ÿ˜‚ either of u every try that?
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:31pm Bas NL:

Cloud services are run by commercial companies.. that can be taken over.
Avatar 4:32pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I just watched a Gene Wilder scene that was very amusing. Maybe I'll play it now.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:33pm Bas NL:

Give it a bump, ?. It's nearly always something got stuck in place.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:34pm Bas NL:

Yeay Gene Wilder!
Avatar 4:36pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

5.25", that's big, isn't it?
  4:37pm ?:

ooh meant 3.5" haha, was thinking of the tray size
Avatar 4:38pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'll go bump my old failed drive I've been putting off trying to recover for uhhhh it's probably been 9 years now
Avatar 4:39pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It's like, I'd rather keep the ambiguous possibility that I didn't lose all the data so I haven't had the heart to try recovering it
  4:39pm ?:

lmao yea, my couple dead ones im just like waiting for future technology to be able to save them, if i were to try now i feel i'd just wreck it permanently
  4:40pm ?:

๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿ’ฅ
Avatar 4:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Exactly
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:43pm Bas NL:

In a way a crashed hard drive is a Heisenberg time capsule. It might yield the past.
Avatar 4:44pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

If you wait long enough, it mutates and starts yielding the future
Avatar 4:44pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

But yeah, the idea of stored data you can't look at because looking at it destroys it...
  4:45pm ?:

frustrating indeed!
Avatar 4:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Let's sell a Heisendrive. Guaranteed 100% reliable writes. No reads.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:48pm Bas NL:

Very helpful is to have a same brand/type drive for spares. (I always buy HDs in two's)
  4:49pm ?:

@Kenzo lol perfect. then we just need one with 100% reliable reads but u cant write to it
Avatar 4:49pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Bas I used to do that, good practice
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:50pm Bas NL:

I'd like a Heisendrive! The ultimate archive.
Avatar 4:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

16 years in the future, I was close
  4:51pm ?:

@Bas yeah ive currently got a 2TB WD drive as my main and a nearly identical model 2TB WD as my encrypted copy. they're the crappy "green" drives that have a history of fails tho. $25 on ebay for 2TB cant be beat tho! lol
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Hellraiser 2021 4:53pm Bas NL:

Hard drives are a gamble these days. But running a copy is the way to go!
Avatar 4:54pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

OK, hi everyone, here goes now
  4:55pm chresti:

Hi Kenzo and everlastings!

The more you look, the less you really know.
  5:00pm ?:
