Listen Ability Rating: A good introduction to the sounds that my show has to offer. We've got beats, jazzy flavors and, as always, a bit of heavy deconstruction writhing in between. (15:02, 17.3mb)
This episode was inspired by a recent live music event where I saw the Kronos Quartet in San Francisco. They did a variety of modern pieces that included taped, improvised and other elements. Matmos also joined them for thrilling electronic and live sound moments.
Wibutee gets us moving with their own combination of jazz and electronica. This is a cut titled "1-800- Skauen" off of their 2004 release on Jazzland Records Playmachine.
On my usual excursions thru cyberspace I came upon a website for the school district of Milford, Connecticut. There I found a midi file that was created by a student named Tim Wilson for his electronic music class, he titled the piece "Helms Deep." In true Inkxpotter fashion I have mutated it with Ableton Live and turned it into my own homage to the ogres and trolls of Tolkien. Inkxpotter exclusive!
Xploding Plastix is the musical child of Jens Petter Nilsen and Hallvard Hagen. An oeuvre of an ear-opener: Zipping and unzipping the beat, a beat-science out-of the ordinary. Emphasizing the flowing warmth and organity of the rhythms. Triggering flailing, skittering, skipping and spinning breaks, makes this pure nigthvisioning. We listened to "Sports, not heavy crime" off of the 2001 release Amateur girlfriends go proskirt agents.

Listen Ability Rating: Drones, doors, delays and blog blabber. You be the judge. (18.5 mb, 16:05)
For this installment I've done away with the overdubs of my intros, extros and other wordless edits. Let the flow dictate and so it shall! The Cleophone gets us started. Strange Music in Small Doses listener Dave sent me a recording of his latest instrument creation. Super cool sounds on a one of a kind instrument. The official Cd comes out very soon, but you can hear it here first! Inkxpotter exclusive.
Dave will have to forgive me for taking some of his sounds to my own extremes just a bit of sampled blog blabber asked to be swirled into the mix. And then from left field a Door opened and Jim decided we must begin to Take it as it comes, you know what I mean.
Jin Hi Kim has her own take on the sounds of ancient misty hilled Korea. Can we hear the similairities in the Cleophone and her Komungo ( Korean fourth century fretted board zither)? Ask your ears this compelling question as soon as possible
