Listener comments!

  9:14pm Steve:

Hi Bethany,

Beautiful music..
  9:20pm ingrid:

sounds great
  9:22pm Parq:

Yes, Miss B, the Oriental Suite was wonderful. It was complex, cinematic and engrossing. Let me switch over to the on-line Thesaurus site and I'll come up with a few more adjectives.
  10:10pm bethany:

please add as many adjectives as you like!
  10:21pm Steve:

Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) must have been one of the earliest mainstream movies with soundscapes.
  10:47pm Shawn:

I recently watched part of Forbidden Planet (1956), an earlier sci-fi film that made interesting and weird use of soundscapes. Lots of Moog-esque and theramin-type music/noise. Fabulous.
  10:54pm Ike:

Yeah, I finally caught Forbidden Planet for the first time a year or two ago and it was fantastic. Nice concepts, and nice music too!
  10:54pm dave:

along the lines of that christian marclay record, wasn't there a record that inverted the durutti sandpaper sleeve trick, which had sandpaper _inside_ the sleeve, so that every time the record was removed from the sleeve, it'd be further degraded?
  11:03pm bethany:

Anyone own that rare piece of vinyl....Christian Marclay's Record Without a Cover? Inquiring DJs want to know!
  11:03pm scott:

i looked at it for years also in the new music dist service catalog but was always afraid to get it.I Got into Marclay several years later on Zeena Parkins lp Something out there....Marclay is superb on that!
  11:06pm Doctor B.:

New Music Distribution Service! Now there's a late, lamented blast from the past! The radio station I spin for used to get LP's from them every month all through the mid-80's!
  11:06pm one gorgeous blonde:

i just LOVE forbidden planet,its just a really great movie!! ohhhh bethany would you mind if i e-mail you an awsome youtube vid??? i'm sorry bethany but all i have is cds,,,=(
  11:11pm bethany:

sure; send youtube video my way!
  11:13pm Ike:

I'm puzzled. Is the comma-abusing robot-troll evolving into an actual human? 8^)
  11:18pm Eliza:

Ike, why do you feel puzzled about a comma-abusing robot-troll evolving into an actual human,,,,,,,?
  11:30pm Ike:

Heh. Nice attempt to falsify some comma abuse, but the rest of your grammar is too good, Eliza. I deem you to be a higher intelligence. Not that there's anything wrong with robot-trolls. Robot-trolls can be nice. We all like robot-trolls. It's just a different culture. Different cultures are good! Am I being nice enough? ;)
  11:36pm Steve:

Besides the amazing unplanned rhythm all these transport sounds are making me lonely.
  11:36pm Alan Turing:

Rats! Foiled again! -- Eliza
. o O ( Loving this soundscapes show, incidentally )
  11:40pm Ike:

HA! Turing test -- I love it!

The soundscapes are awe-inspiring.
  11:46pm one gorgeous blonde:

bethany please lemme know your thoughts on the youtube clip. thanks very much bethany and ike people can change!! g'nite =)=)=)
  12:32am pauline:

god bless rowan & martin may they rest in peace
  5:57am Paul:

One of the Christian Marclay things I do have is a CD of live improvisation with Gunther Mueller, on which they both impress me with their open ears. Marclay drops in a bit of Anthony Braxton from 'Fall 1974' which makes me like it even better!
  2:08am David Pestorius:

I'm continually amazed by these claims about when the term 'Sound Art' started to be bandied around. Here in Australia it began to have some currency in the early '80s and it was certainly institutionalised internationally by 1982 with that year's Biennale of Sydney, which included a whole section devoted to Sound Art curated by Bill Furlong of Audio Arts fame.
