Live performance and chat by Julia Kent
On "Asperities," the fourth solo album by acclaimed Canadian cellist Julia Kent, the theme of conflict creeps into her music. The word "asperity" means a roughness or sharpness of temper/conditions and Kent says, "As the title suggests, this is a record born of conflict: internal, personal and global." Julia creates these musical conflicts by looping cello, effects and found sound. Julia Kent performed some of these pieces live for the WFMU listeners.

that cat looks like she's got character
  9:11pm Paul bumm:

is this a re-make of 'from the air'?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Irene Trudel:

Oh, she does, bob. Very sweet but very insistent that I give her lots of attention. Head-butting is her thing. Paul, good catch This is a re-working of "From the Air" for a new film of Laurie's that opens tomorrow in NYC.

I hope Trouble & DJ Icepack remember to listen to Julia. I'm glad I am.
  9:51pm Paul bumm:

Julia's new album isn't on Israbox yet :o(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Irene Trudel:

Julia's album will be out October 30th, so soon enough.
  9:52pm Paul bumm:

yeah we need to come together, over me
  9:53pm Paul bumm:

how did u type that while u were interviewing Julia, Irene?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Irene Trudel:

Very quietly, Paul. You might be able to hear me tapping on the keys.
  9:55pm Paul bumm:

no way, u must have a helping hand there
  9:59pm Paul bumm:

Cubs just got lucky with a lost ball in the bush
  9:59pm jon:

hi irene. julia and nica made my nite
  10:01pm Van in DC:


We are Anonymous. We are everywhere. Except ontime for this show.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Irene Trudel:

Nope, Paul, it's all just me engineering and typing while Julia plays here.
Hi jon and Van
  10:09pm Van in DC:

That was nice
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Summer and Michael:

Homemade chicken soup going on the stove, guitars freshly strung, Mets leading in 7th and Irene's beautiful show cranked up on the stereo. It's a good night in Hell's Kitchen...
  10:12pm Van in DC:

Mets winning right now, 3-2 top 7th
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Summer & Michael! Thanks for the Mets update!
  10:16pm Van in DC:

Is Julia Kent influenced at all by any classical artists? Just curious.
  10:18pm Van in DC:

Oh, and I'm sure this is probably a rhetorical question - Irene, have you been adopted yet? Probably by tens of billions....
  10:21pm Van in DC:

Perfect sense Julia. Thanks!
  10:21pm Tommy:

Love the Julia Kent
  10:23pm Van in DC:

Really loving Julia's music. Thanks everyone for making this happen.

  10:25pm Van in DC:

Mets 5-2!
  10:30pm Van in DC:

I hope pics follow :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Irene Trudel:

Yay, thanks Van! Pics of Julia will follow in a day or so.
  10:33pm Van in DC:

By the way, that cat... I see a message of "You just woke me up, so you better have some really good food ready for me..."
  10:42pm Paul bumm:

Cubs are toast, only Marty Mcfly's arrival can save them.
  10:49pm Van in DC:

wowsers. Liking this.
  10:50pm Van in DC:

Mets 5-2 bottom of the 9th!
  10:55pm Van in DC:

ops, top of the 9th? halfway paying attention....
  11:02pm Van in DC:

Ooooooh. Looks like the whole Adopt a DJ thing has vanished. Sad to see.
  11:03pm Van in DC:

I've quite enjoyed Kevin's guitar since hearing it right here before. Always welcome.
  11:06pm Van in DC:

At least, I think it was here...
Avatar 11:10pm Van in DC:

Okay...signing in for once.
  11:10pm Paul bumm:

thank god
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Irene Trudel:

Van, we only do the DJ adoptions in our March fundraiser. Adopters get rights for a whole year. Same with the pet mascots. By the Way, Kevin Kastning will be live next week with guitarist Sandor Szabo, who is visiting from Budapest.
Avatar 11:11pm Van in DC:

Ah okay thanks. I get mixed up on adoptions. Look forward to next week!
Avatar 11:12pm Van in DC:

  11:13pm Van in DC:

Okay signed back out. Sigh.
  11:23pm Paul bumm:

thank god
  11:24pm Paul bumm:

How much did u go for last year Irene?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Irene Trudel:

I think you can adopt someone for a Mouse of Today pledge, Paul.
  11:28pm Van in DC:

yep Mouse pledge.
  11:31pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Good morning Irene, hello one and all
  11:32pm Van in DC:

Curious if anyone can still adopt, say, Julie, or Meghan... if the Irene's and Jeffrey's are gone...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm Irene Trudel:

Hey Sean! Glad to have you even this late. I haven't seen the game, but the Mets won!!!
  11:32pm Van in DC:


You're late.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm Irene Trudel:

I should say, early, Sean. Isn't it about 4:30am UK time?
  11:36pm Van in DC:

October by the way is just brutal for asking for money. WETA, the classical musical station I really love here, also is commercial-free, and listener supported. And yep, October is their big begging month as well. Sigh.
  11:37pm Van in DC:

Holy mackerel, RENAISSANCE!
  11:37pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Yes, ridiculously early in the morning but late for the show, apologies. But one win away, this is unbelievable and Murphy homers again
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:39pm redkayak:

Evening all!
  11:40pm JakeGould:

Hey! What’s up?
  11:40pm Van in DC:

All best wishes for the Mets
  11:41pm Van in DC:

Murphy > all other postseason HR hitters :)
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:42pm redkayak:

Indeed.....Mets have a heck of a team this year :)
  11:42pm JakeGould:

The Mets winning is great!
  11:43pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Van, good morning, I think Murph is close to breaking a record here if he keeps this up
  11:44pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Sorry don't mean to turn the comments page all sporty but this is just unreal!
  11:44pm Van in DC:

He may have already set some records, not sure... but close if not
  11:48pm Van in DC:

I HAD to have both T-shirts.
  11:50pm Van in DC:

Unknown to me but I like Ora Cogan. First impression... Meg Baird maybe?
  11:52pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Really looking forward to hearing the rest of the show via archive, it looks a real cracker,
  11:52pm Paul bumm:

save it tip christmas in that case
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52pm Irene Trudel:

Hey Jake & redkayak! Nice to have you here, even late in the show.Gonna say good night now. Remember, next week is a short show-- starting at 10pm-- but we'll have Kevin Kastning & Sandor Szabo right at the the top to maximize time.
  11:53pm Van in DC:

Is that how you know you made it as a recording artist? When people start comparing other artists to you? I imagine that would be the height of ego.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:54pm Summer and Michael:

  11:56pm Paul bumm:

Irene, i'd buy that for a dollar!
  11:56pm Van in DC:

Fantastic show, even though I was late. Thanks Irene!!
  11:56pm JakeGould:

Nice sounding show next week!
  11:57pm Paul bumm:

yeah it wouldn't be a good show without u Van
  11:57pm Van in DC:

Awwww thanks Paul
  11:57pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Great show (well what I heard!), thanks Irene
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Irene, thank you for another awesome show and a great set from Julia
