I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

Thanks James. Well is, well, a bit further away, but this show is sure to bring me much closer

Thank you for tuning in, james, fred, northguineahills and P-90! So happy to be back on the radio and listen to music with all of you.

Must be feeling good to be back home after a month, fred. Hope you get well soon!
  12:11pm P-90:

@fred: Glad to hear the health trend is pointed up, at least. We're beaming good vibes to you from North America!

@Mayuko: Yes! That is a very beautiful and soulful photograph by Apperson. It has crystallized the mood for the rest of my day, Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11pm Jeff Golick:

Hi. Made it here via the email...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm fred:

I did get a "play vertigo" moment in physical therapy, when I got on a treadmill for the first time ever. I walk fast, so they warned me I might feel dizzy stopping and should bring the speed down over a couple of minutes. Of course I didn't, and had to grab something to avoid crashing down when I stepped away. The very same vertigo thing you talked about. I did slow down later, but not to much, getting that rush was the reward for 30+ minutes of boredom
Avatar 12:19pm Mayuko:

P-90, I made a short trip to Lake George this past summer and learned about him at a small local history museum there. I somehow very strongly got attracted by his photos. Glad you like it too!

Hi, Mayuko. Glad you're back, but happy to report that Bill Mac did excellent fill-ins in your absence.
Anyone ever experience vertigo when driving in a snowstorm at night? It's kind of wild.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm fred:

Local history museums can be hit or miss, but most hits are home runs. We don't have enough of these over here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm ifny:

@Ken yep. The only thing that got me through the night were the logging truck tail lights which gave me a drishti point.

Ohio, ifny! Thank you for tuning in!

Ken! I just drove a bit in mist in upstate recently, that was already pretty scary to me, let alone snowstorm + vertigo. You could be taken to somewhere out of this world (literally)

Mayuko - yeh, people say that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm fred:

@Mayuko: I was already pacing myself because of the weird setting, staying at an easy 4mph. I can easily reach 5mph for a while, as the huffing and puffing therapists learned in outdoor walks over wooded hills. I was mean enough to attempt small talk with them then. Then again, I had to get clearance to get out (to see a dance show), and they supported my bid
Avatar 12:36pm Mayuko:

@fred I like small local history museums, I wanna travel visiting more of those. Even when it's not spectacular, I still like em. It's usually not crowded or often you could be the only visitor at the time, and somehow feels quiet in a particular way like time has stopped or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm doctorjazz:

Hi Mayuko and all!
This Sourdure is cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm fred:

Sourdure is pretty great live. His set at Sonic Protest was marred by technical difficulties, but something (ahem WFMU) seems to have made me tolerant of that. The Nihilist Spasm Band will be here next year, I'm very happy to see them again. And Phew will play too! I've never seen her, so that's the main event for me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm ifny:

If anyone is ever near Durham/Chapel Hill North Carolina, one of my favourites is the low brass collection jammed into a wee yellow house (including bolted to the ceiling). It's worth a pilgrimage. simonettitubacollection.com
Avatar 12:39pm glenn:

oh, mayuko. i LOVE small town museums. quirky, fun, and done with pride and whimsy, for the most part.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm ifny:

It's the most extensive low brass museum I know of. More Sousaphones than you can shake a stick at. Because there's no room to shake a stick in there, it will fall down a bell for sure.
Avatar 12:43pm Mayuko:

That tuba collection looks fantastic, ifny!!!!!!!
Avatar 12:44pm Mayuko:

Hi doctorjazz! Glad to have you here!
Avatar 12:44pm Flash Strap:

I live right by that, Ifny, but have never been

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The town here is renowned as the home of FDR. Besides the National Park site at his residence, the town has a little historical museum. www.townofhydeparkny-historicalsociety.org
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm ifny:

@Mayuko It really is. I shot a lot of film in there. And just kind of meditated. There's something humbling about standing next to a ton of sousaphones. They're like brass pachyderms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm fred:

@glenn: I think that whimsy is what me miss here is France. We're always pleading for approval from the powers that be, even in villages with a few dozen people. No room for quirkiness
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm ifny:

@Flash Strap: let me know what you think of it!
Avatar 12:47pm Mayuko:

Someone should make an map app to navigate travelers to all the local museums gathering all these information. It probably exists already.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm ifny:

And if you're there, it's a short jaunt over to the International Museum of Civil Rights in Greensboro. Maybe too big to qualify as a smalltown museum, but it is rife with local history (Greensboro being 1st successful sit-in in 1960 - they've got a replica lunch counter in there and some mind-blowing ephemera). Lavish curator love and hands-on, lived experience vibe. The museum's website: www.sitinmovement.org
Avatar 12:47pm Brian in UK:

@ifny Wow, if they could get people in to play all of those at once.

@glenn whimsy is what is missing today.
Avatar 12:49pm Mayuko:

Welcome on board, Brian in UK!!
Avatar 12:49pm Brian in UK:

@fred great to 'see' you again. Would it be fair to say that Boris Vian had his share of whimsy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm fred:

That Taiji track is amazing
Avatar 12:50pm Brian in UK:

Mayuko where are my manners. Good afternoon to you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Ike:

Apparently there is a Museum of Russian Art around the corner from WFMU, surprisingly. I had no idea it was there until I saw it on Google Maps while examining the area for restaurants.
Avatar 12:50pm glenn:

whimsy is not something that can be programmed. it just is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm ifny:

@Brian in UK Some of them aren't so playable any more. But actually that would still sound amazing and edgy now that I think about it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm ifny:

Let me just say that I was sufficiently moved to make sure that Trombone Suicide got its own entry in Wikipedia.
Avatar 12:52pm Brian in UK:

@ifny your avatar would be perfect for Mayuko.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm fred:

@Brian: He probably had his share of many things, and then some. Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp used to tour with a working pianocktail, if they still do it that's worth checking out. They're worth checking out anyway
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm ifny:

@Mayuko, doozo! Demo ne, Mayuko no avatar wa stekki.

@Brian I think Mayuko's avatar is far cooler than mine, sharper even!
Avatar 12:55pm glenn:

for what it's worth, the museum in st. pierre et miquelon has a functioning guillotine. it's behind 2 inch thick acrylic, mind you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm ifny:

@glenn what a bunch of killjoys.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm fred:

So how do you know it's actually functioning?
Avatar 12:57pm glenn:

i know. i was hoping for a demonstration while i was there, but alas.
Avatar 12:58pm glenn:

ummm. that's a good point, fred, but according to the little blurb, it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm ifny:

Oh, and it's massive, but the Computer History Museum in Mountainview California is amazeballs. They have a working Babbage machine (it's unclear if it's going to be running Lady Lovelace code anytime soon). computerhistory.org
Avatar 12:59pm Brian in UK:

Fred I saw Mood Indigo a couple of years ago. A good attempt at making a film of the unfilmable. They had a pianocktail in it ofcourse. Will keep a lookout for the Orchestre.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm ifny:

I know it's working because I got to turn the wheel and calculations came out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01pm ifny:

Perhaps not as attention-grabbing as amputating heads, but that's how I roll.
Avatar 1:02pm Brian in UK:

You want boring/vaguely interesting we have a Bakelite museum over here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm fred:

Call me skeptical, but running Ada Lovelace code looks like a litmus test to me. I saw enough people lose hair over porting music code from the 80's to realize code and hardware go together
Avatar 1:06pm northguineahills:

Here's an IRCAM quote for you Fred: "The studio pioneers of Cologne (NWDR) and Paris (IRCAM) were conscientiously and meticulously laying the foundations of what today constitutes the vast majority of modern music, mainstream or otherwise, pop or academic, from Kylie Minogue to Can, from Ricardo Villalobos to the Mnemonists, from Kraftwerk through hiphop auteurslike Jay Dee aka Dilla." (David Stubbbs, 'Fear of Music: Why People get Rothko but Don't Get Stockhausen', 2009)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm ifny:

@fred Well, the Babbage machine was just designed to do differentials. I think it would come down to a hardware limitation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm ifny:

Ok you wonderful people, I need to put myself on mute. Deadlines deadlines.
Avatar 1:10pm Brian in UK:

Dead Lines.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm fred:

@NGH: I buy the meticulous side. The conscientious side is post-hoc BS. Even Boulez knew it was a long shot, but worth taking. I don't think he had a choice, it was his calling. Their influence in tech was huge, but unintended

Avatar 1:23pm northguineahills:

That would be brilliant, Fred!
Avatar 1:24pm Brian in UK:

Mayuko these Apperson shots put me in mind of Eadweard Muybridge, not because he was a conservationist. He took many pictures in places like Yosemite but was not averse to chopping down a tree that was spoiling a good view for the shot. He beat the rap on justifyable homicide and then took those famous horse shots that prempted the moving pictures.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm fred:

@NGH: I think IRCAM needs him more than he needs them, but he could do wonders with the resources. I'm not giving up

Speaking of links, I went on a deep dive into Ballets Russes over the week. They were more influential than I thought. Comes with the territory of being self-taught. That would have been an art school reference
