1.42pm Daniel Menche - Arrow vs the World

Arrow is Daniel Menche's tiny chihuahua dog who seems to have some anger issues with the world. Skateboarders, Mailmen, Gas station workers, Cat lovers, little annoying children and basically the whole dang world. Arrow growls and grrrrrrrs his way through this overly polite world and makes quit the noise. Daniel Menche recorded Arrow at his usual grumpiness and caught all his vocal hell-fire. Threw the sounds in a thing called a "computer" and mangled Arrow's sounds to heck and back. All sounds captured, mangled and mixed in Winter, 2016 by Daniel Menche at the "House of Menche"

Daniel Menche has been active with abstract sound creations since 1989. Recording an massive discography and performing countless concerts around the world. All recordings are based upon sound source that are vastly varied and challenging. In a genre known for its randomness and chaotic structure, Daniel Menche has established himself as a musician with an uncharacteristic sense of focus and determination. Rather than creating "noise," he strives for order and cohesiveness. Aural intensity is not a representation of confusion or the chaotic, but a concerted effort to provoke and stimulate the listener’s imagination by generating intensely powerful sounds and music. Daniel Menche's music are works which realize their own sonic presence, entities that give form to an emotional rawness with highly textural and dominating sounds."

1.58pm Jim Price - Jim’s Debut Show

Jim Price makes at least seventeen sounds: tooth-grinding, trills, twitters, tongue taps, hisses, grunts and has different sounds for when he bumps into something or when he’s disturbed or wounded.  He’s been a disc jockey at WFMU since 1976 and his band, NEBLUNG PRICE record all their material in an onion drying shed.  Without fatal accident, Jim has arrived to see the airbag and steam from the swelling minor.

Those Richard Nixon blinky gifs really got to me, I don't know how he could stand them
Avatar    Mon. 6/6/16 8:17am People Like Us:

I'll also explain it here - we're using ustream for the radio station because it's got animated gifs AND video in it too, and it's the best way to integrate it with the wfmu site AND this playlist and comments set up. I think that was a coherent way of just explaining it. Basically, you don't *have* to sit staring at the animated gifs, just treat it as a listening experience in the same way as you would when Ken does a playlist with animated gifs. And when it switches over to a video program (like Mr Let's Paint TV or Clay Pigeon will be for instance) you can pay more attention if you have spare eyes.
Avatar    Mon. 6/6/16 8:19am People Like Us:

I also encourage you to call Mr Let's Paint between 2pm and 3pm (NY time) through skype (letspaintwfmu) - watch what he's up to or look him up on youtube now and you'll get the general feel of the thing. He's here at WFMU (as am I) and will be downstairs live at Monty Hall :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 8:22am Cliff:

Ok, now I understand, thanks Vicki! Will the ustream link also be on the main site? Because there's usually problems with running it from the playlist page because it keeps autoupdating and restarts the stream. (And Mr. Let's Paint TV sure knows how to multitask, huh)
Avatar    Mon. 6/6/16 8:32am People Like Us:

yes it will replace the current trailer on the wfmu front page from noon to 5 every day this week. We've set this playlist page to up date only the comments panel. I premade all the playlist info for the left panel here and we have set it to not refresh
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/6/16 8:36am Cliff:

I wonder what it might be like to be the person creating very noisy music. Mixing: "Yes, let's hear that again for the hundredth time..."

Daniel Menche - Arrow vs the World

Arrow is Daniel Menche's tiny chihuahua dog who seems to have some anger issues with the world. Skateboarders, Mailmen, Gas station workers, Cat lovers, little annoying children and basically the whole dang world. Arrow growls and grrrrrrrs his way through this overly polite world and makes quit the noise. Daniel Menche recorded Arrow at his usual grumpiness and caught all his vocal hell-fire. Threw the sounds in a thing called a "computer" and mangled Arrow's sounds to heck and back. All sounds captured, mangled and mixed in Winter, 2016 by Daniel Menche at the "House of Menche"

Daniel Menche has been active with abstract sound creations since 1989. Recording an massive discography and performing countless concerts around the world. All recordings are based upon sound source that are vastly varied and challenging. In a genre known for its randomness and chaotic structure, Daniel Menche has established himself as a musician with an uncharacteristic sense of focus and determination. Rather than creating "noise," he strives for order and cohesiveness. Aural intensity is not a representation of confusion or the chaotic, but a concerted effort to provoke and stimulate the listener’s imagination by generating intensely powerful sounds and music. Daniel Menche's music are works which realize their own sonic presence, entities that give form to an emotional rawness with highly textural and dominating sounds."

Wow @Torbjørn, in the 90s, I loved the cassettes of the Weatherman's Over the Edge classics (Formula 409!), but I barely know where to start beyond that. Too much material.

Jim Price - Jim’s Debut Show

Jim Price makes at least seventeen sounds: tooth-grinding, trills, twitters, tongue taps, hisses, grunts and has different sounds for when he bumps into something or when he’s disturbed or wounded. He’s been a disc jockey at WFMU since 1976 and his band, NEBLUNG PRICE record all their material in an onion drying shed. Without fatal accident, Jim has arrived to see the airbag and steam from the swelling minor.
