Listener comments!

  7:00pm Vicki:

Good evening
  7:02pm Sean Hagerty:

  7:02pm Greg from DC:

I like the term Avant-Retard...makes me feel at home.
  7:03pm Vicki:

  7:04pm dave soldier:

hey sean & vicki! Greg, I like avant retard too
  7:05pm Vicki:

hi Dave! A lot of people hate me for that term, but they have no idea of what a pun is
  7:06pm Vicki:

doesn't David Attenborough sound GREAT auto-tuned?
  7:06pm Greg from DC:

Sounds like we are ready to start a new movement in cultural consciousness, well at least for one hour a week.
  7:07pm irene moon:

science auto tuned. about time!
  7:07pm Vicki:

I prefer cultural subconciousness
  7:08pm Vicki:

hi Irene! OK good, we can all go home now
  7:08pm irene moon:

cultural concussion
  7:09pm irene moon:

i am home
  7:09pm William in Birmingham:

Hi all! Greetings from Alabama. Love the show, Vicki
  7:09pm dave soldier:

maybe they should hate "avant-garde" which is a military term. Probably the most dangerous spot to be except being a medic (who you have to respect for bravery). maybe we ought to brag about emuating avant-medics
speaking of which, yeah Attenborough is great on TV. who knew on autotune? who did this? brilliant!
  7:09pm cklequ:

PtheG! This song has really grown on me.
  7:10pm Doug in Canada:

I like you but I don't know what a pun is.
  7:10pm Vicki:

symphonyofscience.com - David Attenborough and Carl Sagan

oh the haters think I am talkng about being retarded when oh never mind :)
  7:11pm Gavin:

Autotune THE WORLD.
  7:11pm Greg from DC:

Never eat a pun with milk products, that's at least what my mother told me.
  7:12pm MrFab:

I actually wrote to Mr. Symphony of Science for tech tips, and he said he uses Melodyne, not Autotune. He says it works great.
  7:12pm Vicki:

hi Doug - I wonder if all languages have puns? A Dutch man told me they didn't have puns but I don't believe that, surely not
  7:12pm Sean Hagerty:

a fine line between a vocoder and auto-tune extravaganza
  7:12pm KM:

can you autotune Patrick Moore some day?
  7:13pm irene moon:

gnawing pop
  7:13pm MrFab:

Oh, and someone started an "Avant Retard' group on Last.fm, and included my music. Fine by me, I'm in good company.
  7:13pm Doug in Canada:

Dutch people are constantly saying things like that just to see if you'll believe it ...
  7:13pm Vicki:

maybe Mr Symphony of Science will autotune Patrick, and yes it would be amazing, especially the video
  7:15pm Vicki:

an Avant Retard support group, great!
  7:16pm irene moon:

or time travel...
  7:17pm Vicki:

tap tap tap tap
  7:17pm Doug in Canada:

The they say "hey, go milk that cow" ... and laugh at you ...
  7:17pm irene moon:

  7:17pm Doug in Canada:

IS everyone in the forum being played tonight?
  7:18pm Vicki:

er, yes Doug, sad isn't it
  7:18pm Doug in Canada:

Hold on, that's what I'm studying as well ... weird coincidence ...
  7:19pm Doug in Canada:

Sorry, I said that by accident.
  7:20pm Doug in Canada:

Then they call you a "groenekikker" ...
  7:20pm Vicki:

let's form a band
  7:20pm Doug in Canada:

And pay for your new windows ...
  7:21pm Vicki:

I just looked up groenekikker
  7:21pm Doug in Canada:

Oh, the Diutch keep that secret
  7:22pm Vicki:

I think we should all make more of a habit of spelling everything we say
  7:22pm dave soldier:

gotta run, ya'll, will listen later tonight, have a blast
Irene, we got a gig for you at Cornelia St in the Village for an entomology evening
aye, Vicki, a forward marching band too
  7:22pm Doug in Canada:

We had to trick a 10 yr old Dutch girl into telling us what it means ...
  7:23pm Vicki:

thanks for dropping in Dave, speak later :)
  7:23pm Doug in Canada:

Hey, when do we gat an Irene gig up here in Canada?
  7:23pm irene moon:

dave--Ill take you up on that!
  7:23pm Vicki:

Irene got a gig, hurray
  7:23pm Doug in Canada:

Dave left because of me didn't he?
  7:24pm Greg from DC:

My mom used to wear her hair in a pun, but she was deathly afraid of paronomasia ... which she passed on to me, it's in the genes, the stone washed kind, oh how I missed the art of reverb, so this show does it for me, now I shall go and silence my madness and learn from hearing. Thank You.
  7:24pm Vicki:

Me too btw Dave!
  7:25pm irene moon:

canada is a big place. i was hoping to do a gig in an igloo
  7:25pm Vicki:

yes, Doug, you were going on about frogs a lot
  7:26pm Doug in Canada:

It's very big here in Canada ... the echo is really something ...
  7:26pm Vicki:

the way this is going me and Irene will have a tour organised by 8pm
  7:26pm Doug in Canada:

Green frogs is literal ... but it has another meaning ,,,
  7:27pm Doug in Canada:

I have a friend who's a bee-keeper and you can play in his drive-shed.
  7:28pm Vicki:

I played Mike from Touch's bee recording, including having a freak out from being stung :)
  7:28pm irene moon:

wow sounds like a perfect gig
  7:29pm Doug in Canada:

Got that right ... he also has a chicken and two geese if that helps ...
  7:30pm Doug in Canada:

The geese are kind of aggressive, though ... hey, where can I get this recording?
  7:30pm Doug in Canada:

... and how much will I be allowed to pay for it?
  7:30pm Vicki:

could you start again, Doug?
  7:31pm irene moon:

  7:31pm Vicki:

the recording of Mike?
  7:31pm Doug in Canada:

I haven't even started the first time yet ...
  7:31pm Vicki:

The bee recording is at http://www.touchradio.org.uk/
  7:31pm irene moon:

i got bit by a goose once. chased me down the road and bit me in the heel
  7:32pm Vicki:

Thanks Irene :)
  7:32pm Doug in Canada:

Yes, they chase me all over ... very annoying. But you can scare them away with a beach ball.
  7:33pm irene moon:

thanks to you vicki. whynotamus?!?!?!
  7:33pm Vicki:

if you stand in front of a pen full of turkeys and say "oooooohhhhh...." they say "oooooohhhhh...." back. It's true
  7:35pm irene moon:

HAHAH are they afraid of the beach? Im a little frightened of pina colatas and too much tanning lotion myself
  7:37pm Doug in Canada:

I just put the chickens away for the night ... and someone just bought eggs ... what a night.
  7:37pm Vicki:

  7:37pm Vicki:

Sean, are you still here?
  7:38pm Doug in Canada:

I'm not sure if they associiate the ball with an actual beach ... but they run from it as fast as they can. When you come to Canada in the spring, I'll introduce you to the chickens.
  7:38pm irene moon:

what kind of chickens?
  7:38pm Vicki:

I hashed up the slash in the url I read out. The slash was a hash. But I pasted it right.
  7:38pm Sean Hagerty:

Yes, I'm still here.
  7:38pm Doug in Canada:

Rhode Island Reds ... lovely creatures ...
  7:39pm Nick:

Listening and enjoying in Raleigh, Irene and Vicki.
  7:39pm Vicki:

Hello :) Ignore these people talking about poultry - do you have any more urls you'd like to share at all?
  7:40pm Doug in Canada:

Very gentle ... eat the bugs off the plants in the garden ...
  7:40pm Vicki:

(Hello Nick)
  7:41pm Doug in Canada:

Yes, ignore me fer God's sake ... I'm not making any sense ...
  7:41pm Vicki:

this piece is really beautiful and works so well
  7:41pm Nick:

It's lovely.
  7:42pm Doug in Canada:

Oh my, the National weather Service ...
  7:42pm Vicki:

well that was a surprise. The weather
  7:42pm Vicki:

  7:43pm Vicki:

the weather is always a surprise though
at least it shut you up about poultry
  7:43pm Nick:

This piece would be nice with a thunderstorm. Turned up.
  7:43pm Vicki:

it would!
  7:44pm Sean Hagerty:

Well... you can see Dave's info here:
Which has a video excerpt.
You can find some other videos of mine at:
  7:44pm Doug in Canada:

Well, I;m still thinking about poultry ...
  7:44pm irene moon:

this is really nice. good music for star gazing.
  7:44pm Doug in Canada:

You're just jealous that you don't have your own poultry.
  7:45pm Vicki:

thanks Sean, pasted into the playlist. A lot of people listen to the archives (through the years in fact!) - podcast will download later tonight or tomorrow morning.
  7:45pm irene moon:

doug--that is true! i tried to have chickens early this year and was told NO. i have raised quail.
  7:46pm MrFab:

Jeez, that 'severe weather warning' startled me out my trance. Is it really necessary? Can't New Yorkers just look out their window!? ;)

Anyway, lovely stuff indeed. Reminds me of Eno's Discreet Music - didn't he did a similar thing to Pachalbel's Canon? And there was that recent Justin Beiber thing that stretches his tune for a half hour, that was great.
  7:46pm Vicki:

Irene Moon Has Raised Quail.

Yes, the severe weather warning shitted me up too.

Yes, the Eno crossed my mind too.
  7:47pm Doug in Canada:

Yes, I was going to mention Discreet Music ... has a similar effect on me .... almost makes me stop typing things about birds.
  7:47pm Vicki:

Sean, the DO or DIY podcast is at http://wfmu.org/podcast
  7:48pm Vicki:

I've just been told the Canon was the flipside to Discreet Music
  7:49pm Doug in Canada:

Yes, Discreet Music includes Pachalbel ... and one is supposed to have three speakers hooked up to listen to it properly.
  7:49pm Vicki:

this bit sounds like birds too (oh no, POULTRY)
  7:49pm Vicki:

(sorry Dave, ha ha)
  7:51pm Sean Hagerty:

Thanks, Vicki.
Yes, I think Dave's goal was a kind of minimalism-- not the bland post-minimalism, but something beautiful that stems from a simple idea.
  7:51pm irene moon:

I like the sound chickens make when they sense a hawk above them
  7:52pm Vicki:

yes, I know the concept is different, and beautiful is a big thing
  7:52pm Vicki:

a big empty thing, ha ha
  7:52pm Vicki:

and what might that sound be, Irene?
  7:53pm irene moon:

garble, glaaagurgle, coogurrrrr
  7:53pm Doug in Canada:

I just like how they look up ... they have to turn their heads sideways ...
  7:54pm Vicki:

it's amazing how you can still totally recognise the initial waltz
  7:55pm Vicki:

  7:55pm Doug in Canada:

Well, you have to say it like a chicken ...
  7:55pm Sean Hagerty:

The piano effects stemmed from trying to approximate what the original piano recording sounded like when it was stretched out.
  7:56pm irene moon:

yeah thats chicken for "SH%@T look up!!!"
  7:56pm Doug in Canada:

there's a freaking hawk up there!!!!
  7:56pm Vicki:

I'm easing smoothly between a conversation about chickens and a Twenty Minute Waltz here. I hope you realise this.
  7:57pm irene moon:

would be interesting to now take the recording and speed it back up
  7:57pm Vicki:

yes it would
  7:57pm Doug in Canada:

Oh crap ... more weather ...
  7:57pm Sean Hagerty:

that's a good idea, Irene.
  7:58pm irene moon:

makes sense... i bet this recording could relax some hens enough to lay golden eggs
  7:58pm Doug in Canada:

Well, the rabbit just hopped over to see me ...
  7:58pm Vicki:

it's sort of surreal, this weatherI
Yes, I'd like to hear it speeded back up
  7:59pm Doug in Canada:

Well timed, Bennett.
  7:59pm Vicki:

thank you Dave and Sean!
  7:59pm Vicki:

Thank you, Horne.
  8:00pm irene moon:

  8:00pm ?:

Ack! No more Do or DIY? DId I hear that right?
  8:00pm Vicki:

Bye for now, chaps.
Thanks for the great recordings, Irene, Dave and Sean
Thanks for the damn weather :)
  8:01pm Vicki:

DO or DIY back NEXT Summer :)
