Pop music, speeches, live phone calls and spontaneous monologues become ambient loopy layered threads riding the liminal spaces between waking and dreaming. [On hiatus.} (Visit homepage.)

Welcome, Sandra! It's an Austin one this week. Filling in for Around the Town Sounds. Was only allowed to use Austin artists as my live remix sources.

Had you been thinking about this project for long before you did the first show?
Avatar 2/14/18 5:24pm
Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Nope, but I'd been doing it (combining records and TV's and noises and). But it didn't begin until the moment it did, with not one second of forethought. It was a Bill Cosby record skipping that pushed me over into knowing what was now happening.
Avatar 2/14/18 5:25pm
Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

In the college dorm I used to attempt to remix and combine what people were playing from their rooms by adding my own stuff strategically from my room.

That's funny.

Wes Anderson's voice here, from Rushmore, because he went to college in Austin, so I thought it counted.

totally counts! i love it.

The timeslot I was filling in for normally played exclusively local artists. Usually the whole track, all by itself!

you could play an hour-long drone for an hour and a 1/2, then you'll have a 30-minute slot. problem solved
Avatar 2/14/18 6:29pm

I wouldn't sit still for that hour and a 1/2. That's how my show turned into this in the first place. Wait 3 minutes for a track to end???
