Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from February 9, 2023 Favoriting

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Favoriting

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Avatar 7:48pm
Flash Strap:

"The Great Learning was one of British composer Cornelius Cardew's most important works, a series of seven "paragraphs" with text from the writings of Confucius and scored for generally large numbers of both trained and untrained performers. The original productions of this piece, in fact, served as the genesis of the legendary pro-amateur Scratch Orchestra.... "Paragraph 2" [is] an exercise in the inevitability and value of failure. The chorus is required to attempt to valiantly surmount the raging drums and to do so over a long period of time, an idea based on the Buddhist method of practicing chanting in front of a roaring waterfall; they will fail in making themselves clearly heard but something valuable may be learned in the process. Little by little, due to sheer physical exhaustion, the singers subside while the drums, gathering rhythmic cohesion, go on and on."

my favorite piece of his. these days he's almost better known for his Maoist / "Stockhausen Serves Imperialism" period, which I respect in theory but yielded frequently rather uninteresting recordings. also did a lot with AMM. Very cool & interesting person, sadly killed by a hit & run driver in the early 80s

The 2nd Paragraph of Confucius' Great Learning: The point where to rest being known, the object of pursuit is then determined; and, that being determined, a calm unperturbedness may be attained to. To that calmness there will succeed a tranquil repose. In that repose there may be careful deliberation, and that deliberation will be followed by the attainment of the desired end.

"Olson lll was composed in Stockholm Sweden in April of 1967. Composer Folke Rabe had arranged for this work to be commissioned by the Royal Academy of Music and Sveriges Radio and it was written for young musicians at the community music school in Nacka Sweden, a suburb of Stockholm. It is based on a miniature cyclic poem "begin to think about how we are to be to."

It was written 3 years after In C with the intent of using hard core repetition as a form of ritual. It was a step toward a more primal form using only one note value to deliver its raw blatant energy.

The premiere caused a scandal and the music director at school resigned in protest against its performance shortly after the premiere."

The Confucian angle was interesting - as one most hears that Buddhism & Taoism are the Mystical handles on long Chinese Culture - & Confucius was about Social Order & Conservatism in that sense. Perhaps the attendant endurances relate to that in some manner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm
StringOFperils:

Undergraduate academia wants the past parroted back. so the conflict doesn't seem all that surprising. Learn the rules. Chant the words. Repeat after me. etc. When they're not 'young musicians' anymore, they can smash all the dishes they want. The music director's sinecure seems bound to be conservative territory.

1967 was about when many were tasked with deciding on Tao or Confucius exactly I reckon.

I think that's going to be my standard statement of resignation for a while> Only Jah can ease the pressure. Has to be good for at least a few quizzical side-long glances.

there should be a big collection of their stuff, it wouldn't even require that big a box set. BUT there's a great collection of some of the dubs called Freedom Sounds in Dub, and Prince Alla and Rod Taylor both have comps (which cover a lot of their FS output). if you can find a download of Earl Zero's Only Jah that's crucial as well

Thanks, Flashstrap, I will look into those. I think I knew Freedom Sounds in Dub, but I didn't know it referred to the label

↳ Quinn02 @9:50
my gripe with that comp is that it doesn't do enough to raise awareness of the great label! it's all about Tubby in a total context-void

Hi Flash. I missed yet another episode. I'm often out playing at open mics on Thursdays these days. But, I'll enjoy this show from the vault.
