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.)

Here we are and here we will be. Hi!
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 3:04pm fred:

Good afternoon Kenzo and listeners. And hello to my future self who might read this someday
Avatar 12/14/20 3:12pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hi, fred, someday!
Avatar 12/14/20 3:12pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Well, this is something new
Avatar 12/14/20 3:14pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I guess the inside joke is that WTJU just played a whole week of classical music.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 3:25pm fred:

I never saw a dance collage, but there was some layering in a piece where the dancers introduced the miming moves in classical dance while saying the meaning out loud, then performed them again and again, slowly shifting what they were saying to be unrelated to the movement they were doing. It worked amazingly well, at least for me. Noé Soulier was the choreographer
Avatar 12/14/20 3:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Nice. I once (I really wish I'd done it more) did a live video mixing collage projected over live improvising dancers, while I was also making live audio college. The video source material was of the dancers dancing. It was a feat, and it was beautiful, and nobody watching grokked that I was doing anything live, let alone all of it, and unplanned. Too smooth, sometimes.
Avatar 12/14/20 3:28pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

My great regret is that I asked someone else to do the recording of the event (point a camera at the whole thing), because I figured I already had quite enough hands full, and the silly person zoomed in on the dancers the whole time and cropped out the entire projected video, WTF.
Avatar 12/14/20 3:28pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The sad moral of Ken's Last Ever is: DIY
Avatar 12/14/20 3:31pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(Feb. 2, 2005, no useful document exists.)
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 3:35pm fred:

To be honest, I tend to ignore the video projections (Merce Cunningham sometimes added stick figures that were too much like him asserting his control over dancers as puppets). Was it like Sol LeWtt's film for Lucinda Childs' Dance? (meaning different angles of the same thing the dancers were doing) Or was there a lag?
Avatar 12/14/20 3:35pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I was using recordings I'd made of these dancers earlier. So, it was a lot like my audio work, but with video.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 3:37pm fred:

LeWitt did too. Did you use the recordings at roughly the same point in the live performance, or did you mix things up?
Avatar 12/14/20 3:39pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It was just a live improv, so there was no conscious attempt to sync them up with what was going on (which itself was improvised, so probably didn't really match the video content anyway). My subconscious was likely seeking interesting juxtapositions.
Avatar 12/14/20 3:43pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The stereo in this show is freaking me out (read this comment in exactly one hour)
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 3:43pm fred:

I remember now something that was more like collage: Ambra Senatore did a piece where short phrases were rearranged to completely change the impression. From a summer picnic between friends to a murder and many nonsensical or mundane things. All by shuffling the order of those basic phrases
Avatar 12/14/20 3:43pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I have the GTDR version playing from one device, the WTJU version playing behind me, and the live version playing in front of me, and I keep THINKING I know what I'm doing and then being surprised
Avatar 12/14/20 4:04pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Doing this show (in this semi-overlap-station era) is the closest to living one of the time-travel nightmare stories I love. My time-brain gets really wonderfully confused. Heart rate up.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 4:14pm fred:

Is there another live playlist somewhere? Where are the other listeners? It's getting weird
Avatar 12/14/20 4:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I've got a list up in front of me that reminds me what time it is and I've got enough practice to understand 1/4 in my body what's going on now. This is The Playlist.
Avatar 12/14/20 4:22pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Sometimes I accidentally forget it Wasn't the playlist. But I know that it Is the playlist.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 4:26pm fred:

I heard that one before. Was it on last year's premium?
Avatar 12/14/20 4:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yes, DVD 3. Would this be the appropriate place to explain/semi-apologize for which episode I chose for this year's CD? Assuming you picked it? Did you? I'm happy with the work I did on it but I did accidentally chose an episode that had already appeared (in unedited form) on DVD 3, which had been a mistake and then it was too late to go back.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 4:33pm fred:

I did get it, though I didn't exactly pick it. I haven't listened to the edit yet. I prefer to listen while walking at night, and I've been stuck home most of the year, with curfew in force when allowed out. So I have a huge backlog to go through
Avatar 12/14/20 4:34pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Lockdown casualty, no listening time!
Avatar 12/14/20 4:36pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I removed what was likely the most annoying part of the original, but also of course about 200 excruciatingly tiny little edits to finally shave the thing down to exactly 80 minutes and then 2 more seconds when I realized that was needed, which took another time and emotional toll.
Avatar 12/14/20 4:36pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The happy moral of Ken's Last Ever is: Improvise, don't edit
Avatar 12/14/20 4:37pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

But I meant to pick a different episode that was new since DVD 3!
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 4:38pm fred:

I know it's weird, but true for me. Lockdown got me behind on listening and reading. Too much work, and I miss the in-between time of commuting, which is neither home nor work, hence free somehow. I used to walk on my way back to get more of it
Avatar 12/14/20 4:39pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yeah, I lost subway/biking time when I moved out of the city, and now lose almost all "no work now please, self" time with less forced leave-house time
Avatar 12/14/20 4:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Forced leave-the-house would've been the better direction
Avatar 12/14/20 4:45pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Here's the part where the stereo confused me, made me kept turning to the left to see what was there.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 4:48pm fred:

Also, I don't have a phone, so commuting was when I could listen to a WFMU premium. Live radio is to tempting
My left ear doesn't work much, so I'm basically immune to stereo confusion
Avatar 12/14/20 4:50pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

No phone is good phone
Avatar 12/14/20 4:50pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Glad you were here today, fred, and also the silent others, who I see in other ways, and nod graciously in your invisible directions.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 4:52pm fred:

Was this some kind of experiment where each one had their personal playlist?
Avatar 12/14/20 4:53pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

What do you mean?
Avatar 12/14/20 4:53pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yes, I'll say yes.
Avatar 12/14/20 4:53pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Everyone was in their own time zone.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 4:57pm fred:

I wouldn't put it beyond your skills to handle several playlist chats at once. You've done it before
And it's fitting for these isolated times
Avatar 12/14/20 4:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Reminds me of the 80's chat years
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12/14/20 4:59pm fred:

Thanks Kenzo, it was weird though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm spodiodi:

Hi Kenzo, listeners, and past fred. I remember that show, it was weird being the only one commenting
Avatar 3:07pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The whole show was made for you. Hi, doctorjazz!

There'll be a goodbyes tribute portion of this episode, fitting as I'm probably saying goodbye any day now.

You've been saying goodbye for decades, it's part of what the show is, has been, will be
