wow, great opening piece, thank god it's time for SHP, I've gotta balance my damn bank account on a sunday evening, the show will surely make this more tolerable! i never knew there was an artist/group called "mount analog", that's the title of an old novel i've heard about so many times but never actually seen a copy of.
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:09pm Homme:

Wondering if Bethany will be out of breath from dashing all the way from the SS Jewel.
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:12pm bethany:

Well, with my Mom beside me (she was my esteemed Guest of Honor) we dashed to 14th St for the 1st Ave L train, transferred to the A train at 8th Ave, trucked down to the PATH train and got here just in time. Whew!
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:14pm Bunyan:

Apparently, it's much far easier to find music by the group of that name than to find the novel (doesn't look like it's been translated into English -- and the author didn't live to finish it anyway...)
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:16pm dan in falls church VA:

the person who first told me about it is German and I thought I recalled him saying that it was published unfinished. he thought it was great.
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:17pm ed zepplin:

Hey Bethany,
missed ya last week, got any ambient Ianis Xenakls?
nice segues
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:18pm PHXpat:

hello from the desert. Looking forward to the show,
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:18pm dan in falls church VA:

ok, there's a wiki entry on it. rene daumal. says it was published in english in 1959.
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:20pm Bunyan:

Sorry, I'll have to take that back: with some more hunting, I found it was finally translated into English in 2004 and is available from Overlook Press.

Yes, and I'm enjoying the program...
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:22pm dan in falls church VA:

wow, bunyan, thanks for that 411. maybe I'll finally actually read it now!

Meanwhile, SONGS FROM DISKO BAY by The Inner Banks has just been added to Amazon wish list! sweet track!
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:29pm Bunyan:

Wonder if the current printing of 'Mount Analogue' includes some of the surrealist art that it inspired.

I was somewhat amazed to see The Dirty Three were appearing at All Tomorrow's Parties last Monday -- considering that they were then to give performances here in Minneapolis that night and Tuesday. Must have been fun hopping the plane in time...

As a request for some time in the future, I note that Bill Carrothers' music has not yet been on SHP.
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:32pm phxpat:

I'm a bit lost here on this radio station, especially since I walk in to my local shp and have to special order a lot of what I hear. How would i classify the genre?
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:33pm Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

Love ya show always every Sunday Bethany
  Sun. 9/20/09 9:57pm phxpat:

Angels and Demons at play reminds me of Milk Cult somehow, any connection there?
  Sun. 9/20/09 10:05pm e:

i believe it was john cage who said something to the effect of dinner music was an insult to both the chef and the musician.
  Sun. 9/20/09 10:10pm santiago:

we appreciate you here in the jungle of nicaragua,off the grid on solar powered wireless internet.... what some jersey boys will do to get out of the hood!
  Sun. 9/20/09 10:14pm phxpat:

I'm about in the same situation musically, I either can listen to the constant barrage of death metal, or top 40. I've started listening to mariachi bands from desperation. Pretty good actually.
  Sun. 9/20/09 10:15pm santiago:

as far as john cage, one of my all time favorites goes, i can see how the clinking of silverware would be an especially upsetting thing in conjunction with his music, or maybe he would just write it in?
  Sun. 9/20/09 10:26pm Bunyan:

phxpat, I think it would be a challenge to identify the genre of much of the music on a show such as this: some of the artists get filed under "classical" or "jazz" (or even "rock" or something unhelpful like "new music"), but there are also artists who consciously dodge categorization. If you're having to place special orders, you're probably safer in giving them artist-title-label; fortunately, it's pretty easy for shop owners to run searches these days...
  Sun. 9/20/09 10:28pm Bunyan:

santiago, I seem to recall forks or spoons ending up inside one or another of Cage's prepared pianos...
  Sun. 9/20/09 10:33pm santiago:

ahh yes...genius... but does that make it dinner music,or breakfast perhaps
  Sun. 9/20/09 10:54pm Homme:

Shostakovich coming up? I like listening for the DSCH. Sorta like looking for Hitchcock's cameos in his own movies.
  Sun. 9/20/09 11:02pm sancho:

I met Cage he read more than a couple of chapters
from a book he'd written. He was very Zen,
NOW ives is lovely dessert...yummy 1/4 tones
  Sun. 9/20/09 11:07pm Bunyan:

Thank you for the Ives quarter-tone pieces -- haven't heard them in a long time (definitely not for the 'Lily-Eared'). It's good to see a lot of his shorter works in compilation again; I believe performances of most of these pieces are long OOP...

Ah, and some more Nancarrow, too? You're too good to us...
  Sun. 9/20/09 11:12pm luxurious insurgent in carroll gardens:

thanks for all the mind-bending sounds...great show!
  Sun. 9/20/09 11:30pm dan in falls church VA:

luxuriant insurgous!
  Sun. 9/20/09 11:31pm dan in falls church VA:

>Rara Avis MInute Study #5

This is just absolutely awesome.
  Sun. 9/20/09 11:58pm Bunyan:

Enjoyed the Glass quartet movements (and the Kurtag)!

Seeing the name made me free-associate: can I also request some Ligeti for a future show? (Looks like he wrote two string quartets, as well...)
  Mon. 9/21/09 2:55pm trish-achronostica:

Oh hey, it's Bernard Falaise. I listened, but didn't follow along, last night. Enjoying the second time around while I worka work.

Good show, Bethany.
  Tue. 2/2/10 1:30pm D.:

Great show. Enjoyed the Kurtag. Never been able to get into him before. Ooh, good to hear about the Seabrook. Must find that now.
