Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from January 21, 2016 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.

This track isn't library I know, but it's in a similar conceptual vein and I've just been meaning to play it for a while now.

The gif reminds me of the Sir Thomas Beecham comment about harpsichords.

what sort of Blazer we talkin' here, bob?

a Chevy SUV

I want to know what you know about what Sir Thomas Beecham thinks about harsichords, Dean
Avatar 7:07pm

SUVs were necessary in North Dakota

"The sound of a harpsichord - two skeletons copulating on a tin roof in a thunderstorm."

ah, I too was picturing a men's jacket, bob, but I had a feeling I was wrong

Great quote there Dean

@Dean: that's wonderful. Makes me wish this was a harsichord-themed show all of a sudden
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm
melinda:

I was imagining a suit coat as well.
  7:09pm
Dean:

Not entirely an exaggeration, either, which explains the charm of the harpsichord.

Trying to remember when I had that kind of blazer - been a while

it is such a strange, compelling sound

Flash Strap:

I remember the MFA in boston had a room of archaic instruments, including a whole bevy of harpsichords & harpsichordesques with ornate scenic paintings on the flip-top, whatever that's called. What an instrument
  7:13pm
Dean:

Two records for when you do a harpsichord show, both performances on the Finlandia label by Jukka Tiensuu: The Fantastic Harpsichord and The Exuberant Harpsichord.

One of the best, because most rare, live shows I've ever attended was Ton Koopman doing a Byrd recital on the harpsichord in my boss's living room in the Hollywood Hills.

Library music is one of those well-kept secrets of music history. It's like spelunking, you almost have to know a spelunker (and very well at that) to get a map to a cave
Avatar 7:27pm
hyde:

library music is a daunting thicket
Avatar 7:28pm
Flash Strap:

Indeed. I try to help where I can, but I am hardly qualified to be a guide myself
Avatar 7:28pm
Walking Daydream:

This one is definitely like Barbarella or Flash Gordon.
  7:28pm
Dean:

Compounding the cool factor, a couple years later I worked at the Bodleian Library at Oxford for a summer. One day, after walking out of Blackwell's Bookstore on Broad St., I spied Koopman standing across the street. I approached him and mentioned having heard him in Hollywood. He replied that he was playing the Sheldonian Theatre that evening, so I attended that concert, too.

that's pretty amazing, Dean

This LP was a split with Georges Teperino, aka Nino Nardini. He's everywhere!
  7:52pm
Dean:

Dig this! Compare bit.ly/1KtKLo7 with bit.ly/23hV89W. Same image, related artists, different albums!
Avatar 7:55pm
Flash Strap:

ah haha! I've actually noticed that at one point myself! recycled stock artwork is a minor fascination of mine
  7:56pm
Dean:

Not surprising, I suppose, given your interest in library music. Do you know the guy who has a kickstarter (or similar) campaign for his book of retouched stock photos? It's a hoot.
Avatar 7:56pm

Song poem labels did that all the time - same covers for multiple LPs

That last track, which I said was L'Orange, is actually L'Orage. there are many typos in the library sharing world, so it's good I double-checked

Avatar 8:52pm
Flash Strap:

interesting that this was his idea of what black American music sounded like
Avatar 8:53pm
Flash Strap:

if that's indeed what the title is even alluding to: perhaps he intends to convey some aspect of the black experience, or perhaps some other thing I can't quite confer from the title
Avatar 8:54pm

it's certainly very gamelan in some respects

the skeleton is totally out of time, but is really into the music.
...as a child there was a large (gradually toward giant) hole in the wall right by my bed and i used to play the lathwork.
Avatar 9:01pm

wow – you WERE that skeleton.

There's some real spittoon and radiator sounds on this track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm
Doug Schulkind:

This is making me enjoyful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm
coelacanth:

some were "dead", but others would make a subtle "boing" kind of sound -and those each had different tones.
Avatar 9:03pm
Flash Strap:

I though some of this stuff might be up your drummer's alley, Doug
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm

judging by the 2 sets that i've been here for i guess that i missed some amazingness that came before...and i'm psyched to here all this at home on a good stereo over the weekend.
