Ok...had dinner...it's cold out. check

Nice movement from Mr. Golden Grain here.

Hey Bethany! Nice vibe tonight!
Avatar 8:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I've always thot you could hear the 'accent' of a Symphony - or string ensemble in this case - like these folks are Berliners - but a violinist I knew didn't agree, saying Symphonies too often have players from all over in them for such an effect...

Clavecin électrique: en.wikipedia.org...
  8:31pm LovecraftDude888:

I've got one of those here...the neighbors love it haha
  8:33pm P-9Ø:

Rick Wakeman used to have one in his upstairs powder room, back in the day
Avatar 8:33pm Droll:

There's a proper Clavecin Wikipedia page, but only in French! fr.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Matt from Springfield:

"during a performance in a dark room the listener's "eyes are agreeably surprised by the brilliant sparks" that were produced by the instrument. The press and the public admired the innovative machine, but it wasn't developed further. The model Delaborde himself built survives and is kept at the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris." Wow, that's pretty radical for 1759! I'd like to see the actual one if I'm in Paris.
  8:34pm LovecraftDude888:

bagpipe practice at 3 am yeahhh.
  8:34pm P-9Ø:

@Matt: I'd like to see the actual sparks
  8:34pm LovecraftDude888:

how about that guy Nancarrow? still haven't heard much of his stuff but hear it's pretty wacky
  8:36pm P-9Ø:

@LCD888: I know that guy, he was like the Zamfir of the player piano
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@P-9Ø: I'm sure they won't let you spark *that* machine! ;) But it's probably easy enough to build one--and demonstrate the sparks at a science museum!
Avatar 8:37pm Bethany Ryker:

Sparks fly! I love it! A completely new scene for me to add to my already curious and overactive imagination about what it was like to be a concert-goer in the 18th century...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Now, the National Cryptologic Museum outside of Fort Meade in MD (the NSA's public museum) is in my Top 5 museums of the world--primarily because it's free AND they let you play with a REAL Enigma machine!
  8:38pm P-9Ø:

@Matt: if you follow fleep's link you can see the gorgeous carving on the cabinet--soundholes etc
  8:39pm JakeGould:

C, C, C, C, C… That’s a lot of C’s! ”Chiffres de Clavecin I. Contrepoints, IV. Colonnes, V. Cadences (1967)”
  8:39pm LovecraftDude888:

right re: Nancarrow. ha, he split for Mexico after the Spanish Civil War and told the USA to eat him and in 85 they said you can come back if you sign a repentent statement against Communism and he told them to eat his shorts once again heehee!! I love it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@Bethany: Yes, I just hope it doesn't set the Armonica on fire, that would lead to a tragedy! As well as startled nerves of a Mysterious Nature...
  8:40pm P-9Ø:

They SAY the one they let you play with is a "real" one. Never believe a spook...
Don't you listen to good ol' Dave Emory?
  8:40pm P-9Ø:

@Bethany: most common translation is "cyphers"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@P-9Ø: And I'm sure he would approve--it's a functional *anti-fascist* machine! He should keep one in his basement for emergencies, along with his Woody Guthrie guitar replica..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Thank Droll, he provided the link! Twice, in two languages!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Matt from Springfield:

The Wiki link is dead, there is a book reference mentioned.

@Matt: HoHoHo, you cracked me up there, almost swallowed my cyanide capsule by mistake
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

If WFMU existed 100 years ago, it'd probably play music similar to this. Music not well known to the mainstream audience.
Avatar 8:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...aww - no reactions to / reflections on my 8:23 - course, I can't compete for attention w/ sparx ❊❊❊❊ !!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ken HP: I can see that -- DJ Irwin de Chuside, playing all the pop that's fit to rock. Live guests including Debussy, and Stravinsky, just to piss people off!
  8:48pm P-9Ø:

@Bethany: In modern French-to-English, "chffres" most often refers to "cyphers" or "codes". In this context, it's probably safe to assume it means "files" or more literally, just "scores."
  Swag For Life Member 8:49pm 12539:

I think the Old Codger was on WFMU 100 years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@RRN63: Well P-9Ø did have a reaction...I guess it's pretty true, unless perhaps each conductor creates their own 'accent' regardless of where their performers come from??
Avatar 8:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- sweet gawd - TheBeatles & my birth were half of 100 ago...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Matt from Springfield:

But of course, 12539! He was already old when radio was new, but then he was at least able to play 78 rpm records -- like they're not yet in style!!
Avatar 8:52pm Bethany Ryker:

@P-90, thanks for the help with the French, I need all the help I can get!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Ken From Hyde Park:

1914 Station Manager Ken would have zoetropes running during his show.
  8:56pm P-9Ø:

Y'now, as "played-out" as it is, there's STILL always room for The Planets. Or a Planet. I never get tired of it/them. You can really hear how HUGEly they influenced the orchestral music that has come since, regrdless of style, even 12-tone and what-have-you
Avatar 8:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah Matt - the Conductor - but then the back & forth of Conductor & Players...& the amount of current passing thru the Conductor relative to its' impedance & how well it's grounded - as far as the sparks you get...
Avatar 8:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& Holst certainly did us astrology enthusiasts a solid...
  Swag For Life Member 8:58pm 12539:

Not enough minutes in this hour. Thanks, Bethany.
  8:58pm P-9Ø:

The Planets are almost like the Rosetta Stone to the entire Classical-Romantic tradition as it has proceeded since then, right up to John Corigliano, John Williams, everyone named John
Avatar 8:59pm Droll:

The Planets and ELO's Out of the Blue were two of my first cassettes.

Thanks Bethany!
