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

austinrich's avatar View austinrich's profile Options

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.

Good Hello, Judy! Great to see you in the chat! You might have heard your ears burning. We talk about you a bit in the interview!
Avatar 9:14pm austinrich:

Great to see you, Otis and Scott67. I think Scott hasn't missed a show yet. Howdy, Krys O. You will be a tough act to follow.
  9:14pm Xandar 1:

This is your brain on electronics.
  9:15pm Judy J:

Yes! Happy to hear your show, Brad and Tom tonight.

The right amount of electronics, we hope, Xandar 1.

There's you are, @Four Dimensional Nightmare! Good to see you!

Avatar 9:21pm austinrich:

I keep having trouble with the right channel. I'll try to futz with it, but I do apologize for that.
Avatar 9:21pm austinrich:

I might have fixed it, but please, keep me posted.
Avatar 9:23pm austinrich:

Ha! I see that @Four Dimensional Nightmare is using the photo I took of them, Brad and myself when you played here!
Avatar 9:24pm Four Dimensional:

I had to choose fast!
Avatar 9:25pm austinrich:

@Judy J: Is Brad in the chat, too?
  9:26pm Xandar 1:

4D, about 2 years ago I found you on Spotify and added 3 of your tracks to one of my playlists. Always enjoy it when you pop up.
Avatar 9:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Something may momentarily hesitate here...it will all be OK.
Avatar 9:27pm austinrich:

I think I solved the right channel mystery. As with many things that lean right, you have to keep an eye on them.
Avatar 9:27pm austinrich:

How did you find 4D's music, @Xandar 1?
Avatar 9:28pm Four Dimensional:

He will be soon; he is making our dinner!
Avatar 9:28pm austinrich:

@Kenzo: I suspect it will.
Avatar 9:28pm austinrich:

@Four Dimensional: you're all hanging out? That's great!
  9:28pm Xandar 1:

First hear of it from you, Xandar 2. Just used Spotify's search function to find it on there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Scott67:

TRASH CULT Store is hosting this... maybe we could do a live recording for a future Show.
Avatar 9:29pm Four Dimensional:

Yep! Thank you, Xander!
  9:29pm Xandar 1:

Avatar 9:30pm austinrich:

Ahhhh! Then I know @Xandar 1! I was wondering where you got the name...
  9:31pm Xandar 1:

LOL. Just promoting the band to be.
Avatar 9:31pm austinrich:

So, I have video links to these live performances I'm about to play. I figure i'll drop the link in the chat, and if you wanna watch while you listen, you can. The first video includes a "Coin Toss."
Avatar 9:31pm austinrich:

Yeah, we need to get on those sessions, for sure.
  9:32pm Xandar 1:

Switched-On Eugene! Interesting choice.
Avatar 9:35pm austinrich:

Here's the first video. It contains the coin toss and the set by Four Dimensional Nightmare.

Avatar 9:44pm austinrich:

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?

Avatar 9:45pm Four Dimensional:

Nope, that was the first time I played on the radio and met you!
Avatar 9:46pm austinrich:

Almost 10 years, now. I need to dig up the video; I filmed almost all of your radio appearances.
Avatar 9:47pm Four Dimensional:

Wow, I never saw that!
Avatar 9:48pm Otis Fodder:

Thanks for the spacing echoes this evening... off to continue offline in dreamstate. Until we mutate again...
Avatar 9:48pm austinrich:

I know I'm sitting on a two-camera set you played where Miss Rikki was running one of the cameras, and the footage was great! I just didn't have the time to do the editing... I still have the files... somewhere.
Avatar 9:48pm austinrich:

Thanks @Otis!
  9:48pm AndrewBunny:

I feel like such a dingle! I was still in the chat room for the previous show! Anyway, digging it tonight!
Avatar 9:49pm austinrich:

Good Hello, @Andrew Bunny! The other show was pretty great. I don't blame you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Mr Fab:

man, this is super coolness.
Avatar 9:50pm austinrich:

I've been a fan of the 4DN experience for a while. I miss the days when there was a guitar overlay!
  9:52pm AndrewBunny:

:-) And thx for this month's postcard! A carol-ing we shall go! I finished up some Personal Business CD-Rs tonight. I'll have to send you something soon (a mini-cd though, not biz card).
Avatar 9:53pm austinrich:

I'm glad you dug the postcard! That one was fun to make. The Personal Business CDrs have been solid so far. I still need to send out a few.

Yeah, send me something for the show!
  9:53pm Xandar 1:

It never stays too long on one planet. I like how it keeps moving along, like a journey. I feel like we are getting somewhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Mr Fab:

There needs to be a sequel to "Forbidden Planet" so this can be the soundtrack.
Avatar 9:55pm austinrich:

I would love to make a movie with 4DN as the soundtrack. One of these days...

Avatar 10:03pm austinrich:

Good choice, @Scott67!
Avatar 10:03pm Four Dimensional:

I connected three Moog desktop synths together and connected those to a rack of Eurorack. And then one other synth. Sequencers everywhere.
Digging brads set now!
Avatar 10:04pm austinrich:

Yeah, Brad was on fire for this set.
Avatar 10:05pm austinrich:

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:

  10:06pm AndrewBunny:

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!
  10:07pm AndrewBunny:

@Scott67 : I've Hogan's Heroes muted on the TV right now...
Avatar 10:08pm Four Dimensional:

Thanks! Yep, I saw that about the Werkstatt. I have a DFAM, Mother 32 and Subharmonicon.
Avatar 10:08pm austinrich:

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 10:13pm austinrich:

Very cool. I'll have to check one out.
  10:14pm AndrewBunny:

I'm really tempted by the Subharmonicon. I've heard some really tasty demos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Scott67:

Avatar 10:15pm austinrich:

I'm already in deep to my circuit bender, so I can't really take on new debt.

This is the song that I was very impressed with the keyboarding. Brad is a total pro, and he's doing this live. So cool.
  10:16pm AndrewBunny:

It's a great vibe! I'm getting a Goblin feel here!
Avatar 10:16pm Four Dimensional:

It's a blast - I need to get better on it.
Avatar 10:17pm austinrich:

That's a good call, @AndrewBunny. I also sense a little "Castlevania" Nintendo horror games.
  10:17pm Xandar 1:

Some holiday Prog Nog.
Avatar 10:18pm austinrich:

Well played, @Xandar 1.
Avatar 10:18pm WR:

Nice Prog Nog. Sprinkle a little nutmeg on it and tasty.
Avatar 10:19pm austinrich:

This is where Brad melts our faces off and tells us it 'twern't nothin'.
Avatar 10:20pm austinrich:

What goes well with "Prog Nog?" Most definitely a "Fog Log."
  10:22pm AndrewBunny:

How do you navigate the streets of London? With a Fog Dog.
Avatar 10:22pm austinrich:

If you're a big fan of a certain 60's rock band, you mind be a "Trog Clod."

What are your favorite Road Trip CDs?
  10:31pm Xandar 1:

...The scene of many a conspiratorial conversation...
Avatar 10:31pm austinrich:

True! Xandar 1 and Xandar 2 have plotted a fair amount at that table.
  10:33pm Xandar 1:

[rubs hands together, nefariously]
  10:33pm AndrewBunny:

Not CDs, but cassettes: I have a 6 tape set of the original Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy radio shows. Great for road trips!
Avatar 10:34pm austinrich:

Absolutely, @AndrewBunny! Got all of those on CD for xmas a few years ago, but I used to listen to tapes of those WAY back in the day. (Recorded off of NPR.) I'm a huge Adams fan.
  10:34pm Xandar 1:

Good move @AndrewBunny

Road music: Aretha/Stevie Wonder/War/Temptations compilation
  10:44pm AndrewBunny:

I told you it wasn't important. :-)
  10:45pm Judy J:

Early January is the next one... first Saturday, tentatively.
Avatar 10:46pm austinrich:

I love a handful of Stevie albums, but I'm sorely under educated when it comes to all of those, Xandar 1. I have a few things here and there, but not much. I need to study more.
Avatar 10:46pm austinrich:

Do you and Brad want to describe a little of how you two perform together, @Four Dimensional Nightmare?
Avatar 10:48pm Four Dimensional:

Brad will tackle that.
  10:50pm Xandar 1:

So now my face is melting from moody prog nog AND my brain is bleeping on electronics responsibly at the same time.
Avatar 10:50pm austinrich:

@Judy J: I'll miss that one. But one of these days I'm gonna make it.
  10:52pm Judy J:

Austin please do, you're always welcome.
  10:52pm brad253:

Hey Austin, i start with some pre recorded clips to start a new section and then Tom does some more improvised material over that. it seems to flow well together.
Avatar 10:53pm austinrich:

Looks like the "duo" set is gonna go long, listeners. Sorry 'bout that.

I think I went to school with a Tim Dilations, though. At least, sometimes I remember it that way.

I remember Tim always used to wear those melting watches to school.

Avatar 11:01pm austinrich:

Thanks for listening, @Scott67

We like to think they are artisanally twisted, just for our listeners.

Time Dilations gets industrial, and I get faked out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Mr Fab:

Thank you, Four Dimensional Brad!

Time Dilations is perfect for my show, since I seem to have a hard time understanding how long two hours is.

  11:07pm Xandar 1:

Is there someone waiting impatiently in the wings? Or can shows overlap in Sheena's Jungle?

You can go over, as this is the end of our live programming day here.
