Mingus, Inkxpotter, Nauman, Reynolds

ListenAbility Rating : 8.3  Musings and rumblings from the heart of the internet beast, a cornucopia of visions and exhaltations.

In summary, we use the sounds of Charles Mingus from 1962's "Oh Yeah", Passions of a Man was the cut we heard. Then we move onto the Inkxpotter mish mash of talk radio musings on the curses of tecnology that plague the youth of today. Segue number 3 leads us into the mind of Bruce Nauman. Act4 heads it ull up with Todd Reynolds and Kid Beyond with Transamerica off of "Outerburroughs".

Listen up people!

From Chaos to calm

Listen Ability Rating : If you can make it deep into the freedom that pours forth from the man with the sax you are rewarded with openness on the other side.

For this segment of time I have constructed a three part transition that anchors itself firmly in the year 1966. We are at Temple University and listening to one John Coltrane play "Leo." "This cat makes the horn go places I didn't even now existed", you take another puff on your joint and knowingly smile and nod your head.

With the use of the ipad and the ims-20 app Korg has made a cool instrument. The original hardware came out in 1978 and was introduction until 1983. The software is quite nice especially when attached to a midi keyboard externally. a nob turning, patch cording, key pounding barrel of fun!

We closed with the sounds of Miki Yui and a tune called Long Before, this is off of "Magina" and just came out in december of 2010. One Akio Suzuki says, "Music that my ears never want to hear through half-baked equipment."

Cage. Wendt, Orcutt and Schwitters

Listen Ability Rating: If the sound of acapella voices, beautifully mangled guitars and various ruminations on the occult grabs your fancy than this podcast is for you.

This episode starts out with the sounds of Bill Orcutt and Sad News from Korea, this is off of A New Way To Pay Old Debts, released in 2009 and just re released on CD. "It's an intense set of raw, blues-influenced songs that sound heavier than most of the guitar records in your collection put together!!"

From here we transition to Obscure #5 - Voices and Instruments - , which was released on Brian Eno's Obscure Records label in 1976. This record exists only on out of print vinyl and in the digital domain of downloadableness. It is a very quiet and beautiful record, featuring three compositions by Jan Steele on one side, and five compositions by John Cage on the other side. We heard Forever and Sunsmell [lyrics by E. E. Cummings, vocals by Carla Bley].

Next up is Zoo by Larry Wendt. He started his creative artistic activities in the mid 70s focusing on creating text-sound compositions. His works are widely represented in various radio programs and performances in different countries.

To close out the cast we were treated to Ribble Bobbie Pimlico by Kurt Schwitters. Performed by Die Schwindlinge.
