Re: What are we listening today
Lessee... today I listened to (I have a walkman at work)
Philip Jeck - Vinyl Coda: This guy uses many many turntables all at once,
using ancient scratched-up records to make mysterious ambient music
Talking Heads - Remain in Light
Slut (a collaboration by various Japan and New York artists on God
records): The first 5 tracks feature an incredibly bizarre sting
and an even stranger vocalist, yet manage to be very beautiful and
Ween - Pure Guava
The Residents - Stars & Hank Forever: (Residents covering Hank Williams
and John Philip Sousa?)
Randy Greif - Alice in Wonderland: A truly amazing 5 disc set of the
story told with all the frightening/bizarre elements left intact - with an
amazing experimental music background.
CT Collective - Bluezette: Loopers-Delight members trying their darndest
create blues songs!
I had the chance to go see Francisco Lopez play at Mills College in
a few weeks ago. He's probably the best known of field-recording
and his approach is very unique. Instead of recording "events" (like dogs
barking or traffic noises), he records spaces. Most of the basic elements
uses in tracks are extremely minimal, but as he builds them up, they can
become a simply amazing, loud, and overpowering listening experience.
