Yes, I am aware how long its been since I put one of these podcasts on the air. But there is so much music to create and splice and dice, mix and remix. You know how it goes. First up on this show is a piece off of John Oswalds 2 Disc 69Plunderphonics96 Box set. "Don't" is the name of the piece and we are treated to a sublime mix of Elvis, copious overdubs and a Spector like wall of sound. Oswald was and is ahead of the curve when it comes to the plundering of sound. The set also comes with a 60 page booklet that describes the elements present and motivations behind each piece. Fascinating stuff.
Following that fun time with sounds we have a character currently in development? Morpho Genex is the name of the Cd and it features the sound of Inkxpotter himself on vocalisation. Or as some may call him "Insane Inkxpotter". Recorded a few years back but recently mixed by Kyron we have the piece "Slalom". I am currently working on pieces for the next Morpho Genex CD which will feature pieces mixed by Kyron and I. Buy this one!
Closing out the set we've got Alan Sondheim and Ritual All 770 off of the debut recording done in 1967. I spied this one at the Amoeba records in San Francisco and decided to give it a shot. It definitely qualifies as strange music and worth a few listens. It was recently considered a rarity until Fire Museum Records in SF re-released it.

Before there was Inkxpotter. There was Vergot.
