Favoriting Mid-Valley Mutations with Austin Rich: Playlist from December 14, 2021 Favoriting

austinrich's avatar View austinrich's profile Favoriting

A combination of collage, new experimental records and other bits and bobs, Mid-Valley Mutations is a tour through the mind of Austin Rich, who has been broadcasting in some form since 1998. Heavily influenced by Dr Demento, Don Joyce and old fashioned College Radio, Austin creates Audio Essays on a variety of subjects, and even just plays records, from time to time. Sometimes Live music and Interviews will grace the program, helping create a situation where you don't really know what you're going to hear, when you tune in. What you need to know is when you enter the Mid-Valley region, be prepared for the Musical Mutations... in whatever form they take.

I believe the earliest time that I worked with @Four Dimensional Nightmare was on the "What's This Called?" program, where I was engineering the live sound for the performance. Here's a link.

Tom: did we do anything any earlier?

Yeah, Brad was on fire for this set.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 10:05pm

Brad usually has a very stripped down set-up: a keyboard controller and a computer. Watching his fingering when he's playing is so impressive to me! I can't play synths like that.
  10:05pm
Xandar 1:

Moody!
  10:06pm

Speaking of Moog desktop synthesizers, they just discontinued the Werkstatt. I have one, and it's a fun little beastie! And yes, great 4D set!

Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 10:08pm

I just looked at an image of the Werkstatt. Very interesting. Do you like it, @AndrewBunny?
  10:13pm
AndrewBunny:

I do! I have a big Moog (miniMoog Signature Series Voyager I got in 2003 for my 40th b-day), but the Werkstatt has the definitive Moog vibe in a compact (and cheap!) form!
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 10:13pm

Very cool. I'll have to check one out.

I'm really tempted by the Subharmonicon. I've heard some really tasty demos!
