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!

Forever Changed

Listen Ability Rating: A wordy set of sounds, audio compounds, a homage to Beefheart...

"When we hear sounds we are forever changed...we are never the same..." , K. Stockhausen.

---------Interweaving the audio are the words of John Cage and Karl Heinz Stockhausen and an unknown student asking the question, "Can this souless electronic music, devoid of human inflection be a viable art or will it wither and die?"------------

Here is my answer...The Inkxpotter Resonse...Listening is your only option...

"Wild Life" by Captain Beefheart --

"Another Green World" Eno

"Studie One" Karl Heinz Stockhausen--

"Would I for all that were" Sun Ra

"Eyeballs" Oneohtrix Point Never

 ...And a shout out to those uploaders of video...

Peace Out.

A Night of Living Sound

Listen Ability Rating: 9.9. The dissonance of times colliding. Mixed and matched often inappropriately.

My concept here is a mixing together of cultural artifacts from different time periods. The 50's and it's vision of the future. Tape decks and record players to be bought and sold. Automatic rewind waiting on the horizon. So simple, So convenient, So Easy to use. You get the idea.

Fast forwarding we end up in the now. A place where the call and response of Communication is Community echoes in our ears. "The technology of transmission is the promise of one world made whole. . .  I dream of a time when everybody breathes and touches each other on air."

Aldous Huxley enters our sound stage from somewhere in the 50's. His metaphysical, eastern outlook, fueled by the visions, the inner light shining.

From the war years prior to the fiftys we get a taste of state sponsored propaganda. It's the audio from a movie ,"The Spirit of '43", about saving your money to pay taxes and help the war effort. "Thanks to Hitler and Hirohito the war effort this year is more expensive than ever!". Funny how things have changed. The vid is highly entertaining.

A girl in trouble appears in dislocated time and it doesn't end well. It's one of those Mary met Robert stories and Mary ends up dead. As the narrator explains, "There's no easy way to tell a mother, "Your daughters been murdered.""

A few parting thoughts from Mr. Huxley and we are ready to shine thru.

peace Out.

Re-storing. De-stroying. Re-storying.

Listen Ability Rating: <<<<9.2>>>> Take one part Glenn Beck, a smattering of frost covered Washington Monuments, and a short history of King of the Luthiers and you've got no idea what I'm talking about. You'll just have to do the prudent thing and listen.

In the late summer of 2010 half a million minions assembled to absorb propaganda in it's most rarified form. An aptly titled "Restoring Honor" speech by Glenn Beck. He altered his tone from manic word-monger to fatherly wisdom imparter. Yet underneath the apolitical surface writhes a venomous snake, hungry for the souless masses, ready to exact the slow squeeze. Sort of like a boa constrictor on crack.

Into my re -storying of the speech I've added short fragments of music, all under the two minute mark. King Midas Sound, "Sumtime"  from Waiting for You , Ben Frost "Through the Glass of the Roof" from By the Throat, Broadcast and the Focus Group, "Will You Read Me" from Broadcast and the Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age, John Oswald "spring" off of 69 Plunderphonics, Negativland "The Playboy Channel" off of Escape from Noise, Inxpotter "Amazing Grace" excavated especially for this podcast, and Rufus Harley "Re-Creation of the Gods" from the album of the same name.

Listen in and get the real story and let the Inxpotter know what you think!
