Hi Gary, NoDakBob, and all the other faithful Bodegaistas. Voice of Tim is coming in just fine here in Oregon.

Music is down in the mud. Much more volume.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Gary:

Hi James, Carmichael, Doug, Melinda, and Mom! I think I got Tim's voice up to where it should be, but be vigilant, listeners ... vigilant ... lemme know if the music is loud enough now, too
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Doug Schulkind:

I think the volume is OK. We are listening to cassettes, which provide many layers of mud.
  7:09pm Jill B.:

Music level is perfect!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Gary:

Terrific! So thrilled to have Tim here, finally! One of my all-time favorite blogs, and I'm guessing y'all's as well ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Gary:

Tim, where did you find this cassette?
Avatar 🇰🇷 7:14pm tim abdellah:

I picked this up in Morocco when I was living there in 2000-2001.
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Doug Schulkind:

I'm holding out hope that I'll finally learn how to pronounce Najat Aâtabou! Welcome welcome welcome to the Drummer Stream, honorable Tim Abdellah Fuson!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Gary:

I'm just relieved I don't have to pronounce anything for once! :)
Avatar 🇰🇷 7:15pm tim abdellah:

Hiya Doug! I'll do my best to pronounce it right!
Avatar 🇰🇷 7:16pm tim abdellah:

It's great to be on Give The Drummer and Bodega Pop!
Avatar 🇰🇷 7:17pm tim abdellah:

I love everything about this track. The alternating solo vocals, the call/response interplay, the scratchy textures of the viola and voices, the complex heavy rhythms...
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Doug Schulkind:

The voice is mimicking the viola and vice versa. Same throaty timbre. They are like sisters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Carmichael:

Yeah, music is better, thanks. I got involved in some actual real honest work for a second and couldn't respond. Won't let it happen again.
Avatar 🇰🇷 7:23pm tim abdellah:

@Doug - absoutely!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Gary:

Tim's note to me about this track: "The Fatna Bent el Houcine track is one of the greatest things ever. But it’s 21:40 in duration. Starts off in a slow 40-beat complicated, heavy rhythmic cycle, moves eventually into 19- and 10-beat sections, ending up in an ecstatic 6/8. It would be a shame to fade or edit it. This is Aita Hasbawiya, from the region of Asfi."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Gary:

It is *totally* one of the greatest things ever
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Doug Schulkind:

@Gary and Tim
You can go until noon (ET) tomorrow, but then you gotta clear the decks for Charlie and Busy Doing Nothing.

@Doug cool. i am looking forward to the next 16 1/2 hours of the show
Avatar 🇰🇷 7:28pm tim abdellah:

I wish! I have to go to Back To School Night tonight :0
Avatar 7:31pm hyde:

p.s. i am here but trying to sort out some computer issues, so thanks for the cool sounds to accompany my attempting to figure out why i'm having audio and video distortion issues. if you hear a loud thumping down there in nyc, it's just me banging my head against the wall while i'm trying to replace myriad device drivers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Gary:

Hyde! Sorry to hear about the computer travails ... :(
Avatar 🇰🇷 7:36pm tim abdellah:

Moulay Ahmed el Hassani - SLINKY is my adjective of choice for his sound!
Avatar 7:39pm hyde:

heh, well at least the stream plays ok if i'm not doing much else beside poking around in device manager! streaming video is the real problem. though i'm occasionally getting some weird psychedelic lag if i download a new driver. i'll manage, but i may not be chiming in too much. so let's just say it all sounds great right now if i don't turn up here much. ;)
  7:39pm Dean:

I was gonna chime in with a requisite joke -- "Hey, when you gonna play Brand X's second album?" -- when a buddy of mine also listening raptly reports, "holy shit, this guy rides my bus sometimes!" Tim lives in our 'hood. (We know all about Back to School Night.)

  7:45pm ZOs:

Wow, that Ahmed el Hassani track was great!
Will it be shared on the blog?
Avatar 🇰🇷 7:46pm tim abdellah:

This Noujoum el Haouz track has a different guitar sound - Not as slinky as Moulay Ahmed’s sound. I guess the absence of the flange effect.
Avatar 🇰🇷 7:46pm tim abdellah:

I've got some other Hassani on the blog. I'll try and get that album up soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Gary:

From the catalog description of Dr. Fuson's dissertation: 2, vii, 620 leaves : ill. ; 28 cm. + 1 sound disc (4 3/4 in.). Doctoral dissertations don't typically come with "1 sound disc."

I once referred to the now defunct blog Holy Warbles as the great Library of Alexandria of online music sharing. Tim's site, Moroccan Tape Stash, is HW's equal in it's bottomless, boundless offerings of sonic wonder and generosity. People talk about the Internet reflecting the very best and the very worst of humanity, and Tim and his marvelous gifts represent the very best of the very best.

Hey Doug - thanks, man. I joined the blogging community after finding such great stuff on HW, Awesome Tapes, Bodega Pop, Snap Crackle Pop, et al. I felt like I wanted to give back 'cause I was sitting on some great audio that I was lucky enough to be able to travel and collect.

I didn't arrange permissions for release when I made these recordings. They were intended for research alone, so I wouldn't feel good about releasing them commercially.

Tim and I were talking about how Jace Clayton (dj /rupture)'s new book opens with a chapter about Moroccans, Berbers specifically, and Auto-Tune: www.amazon.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm northguineahills:

The last dj premium /rupture did for WFMU was 3.5 + hours of an mp3 cdr of Maghrebi club music. (he temporarily quit WFMU to focus on his book).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm northguineahills:

Coincidentally, it was the last time I had enough money to contribute to an WFMU marathon.
  9:15pm Dean:

I wonder whether Moroccan copyright law--about which I know precisely nothing--prohibits copying or unauthorized publication even for research. Even if there's a fair use provision similar-ish to US law, wholesale copying of an entire work might risk being an infringement.

I think I can hear your Google Hangouts noises... unless there's a Moroccan instrument that sounds eerily similar. Anyway, great show!!
Avatar 🇰🇷 9:36pm tim abdellah:

I always OK'd it with musicians ahead of time that I was recording for my research and to help me learn the music. I plan to deposit the recordings in an archive at some point, so other researchers can access the recordings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm Gary:

You're right, Quinn -- I had GMail open on both computers, which was making the noise ... just shut it off -- sorry about that. And, hi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm coelacanth:

i actually have listened in short bursts almost since 7...
i much prefer this organic music to the synthetic voices i heard around 9. i love this!

Hey Coelacanth - glad you're enjoying! Fortunately most of the stuff in my collection comes from cassettes, and most cassettes are from the pre-auto-tune era.
