Options Mid-Valley Mutations with Austin Rich: Playlist from January 25, 2022 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.

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Austin Rich:

Gonna have some love music, streaming from the Blood of Chhinnamastika studio here in a few minutes... but first, some samples of their recorded material.
  9:04pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

nice!!

some LIVE music... sorry... typeo!

Well, Austin, there are all kinds of love...

Managing many machines and windows tonight. Please! Chat among yourselves! I'll be in the chat in a bit.

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Austin Rich:

Good to see so many names in the chat! You'll be in for a great show!
  9:15pm Geoff:

This is also perfect for getting the little ones off to sleep
  9:15pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

the black album sorry metallica
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Aitch:

Chhinnamastika sounds like the name of a tasty Greek pastry
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Austin Rich:

Metalli-who?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:16pm drowsy:

I feel like this will release that knot behind my clavicle if I hold it up there. And that's a good thing.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:16pm drowsy:

Seriously happy about this being live.
  9:17pm Geoff:

Speaking of looped racket, my Novation Circuit arrived in the mail today! Yay!

well, I'd hesitate to call Blood of Chhinnamastika bonerkillers...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:20pm austinrich:

LIVE EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:21pm austinrich:

When I would see them play, they have a mirrored mask (as seen in the photo) on. I have no idea what they look like.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Aitch:

likely for the best austin
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Austin Rich:

I like the idea of seeing yourself in the artist.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Aitch:

they like the idea of not being recognised by the neighbours on practice night
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Austin Rich:

I find there is a dynamic range to the BoC skronk that is almost meditative. It might sound confrontational on a huge sound system, but on a home stereo there are some really cool dynamics that sound great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Mr Fab:

Ah, I see. Originally, I thought it was a Grim Reaper/"Scream" kinda mask. Y'know what - he should do a cover of "I'll Be Your Mirror."

In his own unique way, of course.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:29pm drowsy:

I get the meditative thing. Like sometimes between shortwave stations you just roll with it.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Austin Rich:

One of the things that I feel going to experimental shows now is a kind of camaraderie that I felt when I would go to punk shows as a kid. I think punk can still be like that, but I find the kinds of kids and weirdos at experimental shows are all record collectors, nerds, and weirdos looking for a community.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:30pm drowsy:

But I'm sure there's a practice here, like the longest drum freakout that ends up creating its own surface.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Aitch:

An ode to DIY dentistry
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Austin Rich:

I meet as many old punks turned experimentors at shows like this as I do kids trying their own thing. And these shows are more diverse than a lot of punk shows I used to go to.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:31pm drowsy:

That is awesome.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Austin Rich:

I'm not the first to say it, but I think Experimental is the new Punk Rock.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Aitch:

Bone-saw is the new guitar
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Austin Rich:

The thing that's missing from this presentation is the pushing their table around, almost knocking it over, and the audience swarming their table, in a wonderful chaos that is very cathartic.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Austin Rich:

There's a guy not too far from the Mid-Valley, in Corvallis, who used to open for Suicide back in the day. He now runs sound for local experimental shows, and has an act called "Luthor Maggot."

Dr. Rich will see you now πŸ‘ΉπŸŽ›οΈπŸ“‘πŸ›°οΈ
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Austin Rich:

I'm still working out the techincal aspects of The Lava Lamp Lounge, and how to monitor signals / relay them in real time / not have to use six mixers to do so. So the home-made delay loop is just part of the fun, i guess?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:44pm drowsy:

It is cool if the venue soundboard is part of the product tho
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Austin Rich:

For sure.

Checking for info, I see "Utilizing special pedals designed for maxmsp." Love it.

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Austin Rich:

Any questions for the artist?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:58pm drowsy:

How much of the output over time is making/messing with hardware/software and how much is curating sounds?
  9:59pm Bri:

I agree, experimental is the new punk
  10:01pm Ellen:

Hi, Austin. Sorry I missed the first hour, I was on a virtual tour of Jewish Spain with my parents. For some reason, I can't hear the livestream at all. No sound at all. I'm not sure what I'm not doing
  10:02pm Ellen:

I figured it out yay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Mr Fab:

my question: what is the meaning of the name 'Blood of Chhinnamastika?'
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:05pm drowsy:

thank you for that answer!
  10:09pm Ellen:

I love Dakinis. They are female wisdom dieties in Tibetan Dzogchen Buddhism.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Austin Rich:

This is totally up your alley, Ellen.
  10:13pm Ellen:

I'm so glad to be here. Thank you for inviting me. I used to live and work and meditate at Oregon's Dzogchen Retreat Center. This performer might want to check that out sometime
  10:15pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

nice!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm Mr Fab:

Thanks, Mr BoC!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:16pm WR:

Thank you for explaining your ideas about your work and concepts. You could have just told Mr Fab to read Wikipedia.
  10:16pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

yes the wisdom goddess are related in buddhism. Same thing esentially
  10:17pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

I will check out Ellen I am familiar with Dzogchen and vajrayana, Theravada
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Austin Rich:

I fell in love with this Cindytalk album, and used to listen to it over and over again. It's tons of fun. Highly recommended!
  10:18pm Ellen:

I learned a lot from Khenpo Choga Rinpoche
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:19pm Austin Rich:

WR: I don't like to direct people to Wikipedia. Usually the library has better leads.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:19pm Austin Rich:

I believe this Belketre selections was yours, BoC?
  10:20pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

Oh yes I have heard of Khenpo Choga Rinpoche. I also like Lama Yeshe who is a Buddhist tantric
  10:20pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

yeah the Belketre was from me
  10:21pm Ellen:

It's interesting, I find the tones of this song relaxing, it was a surprise to see its title is "Hate". @BOC that's awesome
Avatar 🎸 10:21pm Mr. X:

For a minute there, I thought y'all were talking about Blue Γ–yster Cult.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Austin Rich:

I feel like I need to check out their whole album. The two songs you sent are very cool.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Austin Rich:

Good to see you in the chat, Mr. X!
Avatar 🎸 10:22pm Mr. X:

:D
  10:22pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

yeah its a double split album with Vlad Tepes, French Black Metal from the 90s
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Austin Rich:

Ooooo! You are speaking my language! (I took French in college / High School.)
  10:23pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

Hahaha me and Blue Oyster Cult gonna fight to be the only BoC
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Austin Rich:

ARU has really short tracks, so I included a few all in a row. They are all untitled, to my knowledge.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Austin Rich:

ARU are from Dubuque, Iowa. Great experimental scene there, apparently.
  10:23pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

oh shit I forgot about Aural Resuscitation Unit, I did a split with them forever ago
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Austin Rich:

I ran sound for them a few times over the years... their stuff is great.
  10:24pm Ellen:

What a wonderfully small world
  10:26pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

That's great their still around
  🎸 10:27pm Ellen:

I'm enjoying this. I almost forgot how relaxing sound collage and drone are for me. They drown out negative thinking, keeping me in the single present moment
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:27pm Austin Rich:

Yeah, ARU is still slaying, as far as I know. I should hit up Randy... see what they are up to.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Austin Rich:

I think Sickness is one of your choices, too?
  10:30pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

yeah I love Sickness, big inspiration for the project. Got to play with him at Tulsa Noise Fest, prob my fav cutup noise artist
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Austin Rich:

I need to get to the Tulsa Noise Fest. The line-up is always dope, and I never go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Mr Fab:

i found Aural Resuscitation Unit on Bandcamp - holy crap, five zillion releases.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Austin Rich:

Yeah, ARU is PROLIFIC. Love that dude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Vrillon:

Just tuned in and you scared the dog! :)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:34pm drowsy:

good set!
  🎸 10:34pm Ellen:

Yay JUICE MACHINE! My cat is so used to noise music at my house that she is actually sitting on the coffee table next to the laptop and purring.
  10:35pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

I think thats right?!?!

I remember that show, Mr. X! I miss those Funagain Games shows! They were great.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:39pm drowsy:

the artist names today are A+++
  10:40pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

woah this is sick
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Austin Rich:

For those who are from the Mid-Valley: In Eugene, there's a gaming store that would have monthly experimental shows, called Funagain Gaimes. During the day, they would be playing Warhammer. They they would clear out, and us weirdos would put on a noise show in the back. (And catch up on the most recently modules for Cyberpunk 2020.)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Austin Rich:

Yeah, BoC, you need more Formaldehydra in your life.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Austin Rich:

Whoops! That should read, "Who aren't from the Mid-Valley..."
  🎸 10:41pm Ellen:

I miss Funagain shows, as well. I met so many talented people through them, including JUICE MACHINE. The show where you (Austin) and I and JUICE MACHINE and Curtis all played for my birthday and Autumn Equinox at David's was a watershed event in my life. First cassette release, Bast Awakening and DEATH MUTATIONS. Thank you so much for that
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Austin Rich:

That houseshow at David's was hella dope. I never miss Curtis play if I can avoid it.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:43pm Austin Rich:

"Curtis" is the performer in [view], who build amazing weird gadgets that make BIG NOISES. It's something else. You have to see it to believe it.
  🎸 10:43pm Ellen:

I clicked with him immediately at the Salem Noise Fest where I reconnected with you. Remember his set with Don, glorious
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:44pm Austin Rich:

Him and Don are something else together. I wish I could have seen their full set... I was filming something else at the time.

I think you mean Corvallis Noise Fest? I don't think Salem has had more than the one, that sort of fell apart.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Austin Rich:

This one and the next two are BoC selections.
  10:48pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

oh sick Peace Doctrine! This is a selection from my label, Matt Gomes from Misery Engine's cutup noise side project.
Misery Engine's LP will be out on my label in hopefully less than 9 months or so! I just sent it out to the record plant
  🎸 10:48pm Ellen:

Sorry, yes, Corvallis, you are correct.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Austin Rich:

Dope! Yeah, I need more Peace Doctrine.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Austin Rich:

Yeah Ellen, that was the time we reconnected. Before that, I think the last time I saw you was in the 90's.
  10:49pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

the tape sold out in 3 hours lol
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Austin Rich:

That's pretty good! My first tape is the only thing I've sold out of. Maybe I should re-press that in a small run...
  10:56pm BLOOD OF CHHINNAMASTIKA:

thank you Austin and everyone else that listened. It was very fun
Avatar 10:57pm HyperDose:

Not too shabby. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Vrillon:

Aw! I'll listenn to B/O/C on the flashback. Thanks
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:58pm drowsy:

It worked! Noises were heard!
Thank you Austin Rich, BoC and folks on the chat. This show was a treat and an education. Appreciate it.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Austin Rich:

Behind the Intro / Outro parts of this show, I actually used a soundcheck that I recorded yesterday with BoC.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Austin Rich:

But at the end here, I'm mixing it with JUICE MACHINE.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Mr Fab:

Thanks, all! My ears have been properly exfoliated.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Austin Rich:

Well, thanks for listening everyone! I'm going to let this burble for a bit and then call in a night. Thanks for hanging out in the chat! It was a little chaotic over here, but I think it all worked out.
  🎸 11:01pm Ellen:

I loved being here. Remind me again next week. I want to check out your Monday detective show, as well! Much fun, i'm sure.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:02pm Austin Rich:

Oh yeah! You should join us Mondays, Ellen! There's a good crew of folks who were tuned in for the first one.
  🎸 11:03pm Ellen:

What time?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Austin Rich:

Mondays at 3 PM, our time.
