Indeed! Three hours of Lamin sounds great.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:07pm Cecile:

lamin, I can catch you live for a few minutes. I have been loving the heck out of your show on archives.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:11pm George of Troy:

The Goldie is a blast from the past, for sure. In a good way.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:11pm Parq:

What a cool thing to be catching a feature-length Lamin show.

spring must feel so far for you as well then, Lewis! speaking of lights, did anyone catch the northern lights that were supposed to have been visible in upper midwest, new england, and mid-atlantic the past wknd or so?

Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:45pm steve:

this is good... I'm stuck home on the couch with the flu and can barely move... Lamin and efd will keep me entertained until I regain the strength to hit the MPC pads again...
Avatar Wed. 3/20/13 6:45pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

I got a foot soak and foot massage, nail trim..I guess they call that a pedicure..from my lady. I hear this Theo Parrish track like it says "soak your feet!"
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:46pm steve:

that sounds awesome gmmm
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:48pm Carmichael:

Stomping along, Lamin!
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:48pm northguineahills:

Everyone got the flu this season but me (even my gf). It helps that I haven't been taking public transport often and don't have to go to an office full of sick people.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:49pm northguineahills:

(or any transport that isn't my bike or feet).
Avatar Wed. 3/20/13 6:49pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

soak your feet!!
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:51pm cosmic matrix:

wow this is a fun one to sing along with!! dig those cymbals!! and what's that, some tambourines??
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:51pm cosmic matrix:

the synth's back!!!!
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:52pm cosmic matrix:

can anybody identify that synth by its sound?
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:52pm northguineahills:

Man, that acid squiggle flash just bosses the whole track!
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:52pm cosmic matrix:

it's not a TB-303...is it?

As humans we have two feet, two arms, two lungs, two nipples, two testicle/ovaries...two of a lot of things, two halves of a brain. And a few things we only have one of.

parq, when i say "ya gotta" i don't mean specifically you. i know ya like it!
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:58pm Kat in Chicago:

@steve sorry about your flu, but if you've got to be stuck home on the couch, it might as well be Wednesday night with WFMU for company. @cosmicmatrix I assumed 303 but I am not an expert on these matters...
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 6:58pm cosmic matrix:

kat--could be--squelch to the max!
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:00pm steve:

i actually don't take the subway or go to an office either... But then, I think being in those two germ infested petri dishes of humanity can actually help build up your immune system a little bit.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:00pm Parq:

It would be really cool to have that Parrish track for a late-night highway drive.
Avatar Wed. 3/20/13 7:01pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

We have one nose, but yet that is divided into two part with two nostrils and two nasal cavities.

We have two kidneys.

mark, u in vt? i am.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:03pm steve:

thanks kat, my thoughts exactly. All I can do is listen to the radio, pet the cats, and type on my iPad. It's kinda meditative.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:03pm northguineahills:

This is the first winter since I moved to NYC 13 years that I hadn't got the flu (knock on fiber board), even w/ the flu shot. I attribute it my aforementioned lack of activity in said scenarios.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:04pm cosmic matrix:

whoah crispy!

Don't forget the immune boosting properties of a steady dose of Lamin
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:06pm cosmic matrix:

Metastasis or Metastaseis ("dialectic transformations"), is an orchestral work by Iannis Xenakis, a Greek composer-architect and a major figure in the postwar development of musical modernism worldwide. He is particularly remembered for the pioneering use of stochastic mathematical techniques in his compositions, including probability (Maxwell-Boltzmann kinetic theory of gases, aleatory distribution of points on a plane, minimal constraints, Gaussian distribution, Markov chains), game theory, group theory, Boolean algebra and Brownian motion.

Metastasis was inspired by Einstein's view of time (a function of matter & energy) and structured on mathematical ideas by Xenakis's colleague Le Corbusier. The 1st and 3rd movements don't have a melodic theme to hold them together, but rather depend on the strength of this conceptualization of time. The 2nd movement does have some sort of melodic element. A fragment of a 12-tone row is used, with durations based on the Fibonacci sequence (1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34...)

The preliminary sketch for Metastasis was in graphic notation looking more like a blueprint than a musical score, showing graphs of mass motion and glissandi like structural beams of the piece, with sound frequencies on one axis and time on the other. In this video I tried to display this by presenting the frequency spectrum (0-20.000Hz) of the piece and how Xenakis actually "drew" music.

Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:07pm northguineahills:

I'm still waiting, Carmichael, thanks! (I'll probably waiting for awhile longer).
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:08pm Parq:

Endless Stomp is still going through my head.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:08pm cosmic matrix:

and i did say i'll be quiet.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:09pm northguineahills:

Xenakis was technically Greek-Romanian. After getting injured fighting for the Greek partisans, he spent most of the rest of his life in Paris.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:11pm George of Troy:

All of the Recollection-GRM reissues (from Editions Mego) have been pretty phenomenal thus far. I've been grabbing them all as they get released.

@cosmic matrix-yes I am in VT
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:12pm Carmichael:

@ngh: They sure string you out a ways, don't they?
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:15pm northguineahills:

Yes, they do. They even said they let me one way or another by last Friday, and, I still have yet to hear a peep.

@anne: I"m waiting on the NYC Office of Emergency Management. It's only been 3 months since the first interview, and 8 days since the last teleconference.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:37pm steve:

other david - if you like a new dj on fmu I'd highly recommend emailing Ken and saying as much... he seems to value the feedback from listeners.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:43pm northguineahills:

Yeah, allowing Lamin to stretch his legs really works wonders, nice balance of interesting pieces for the head and club bangers. Such mixes are hard to come by in his party sets.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:46pm northguineahills:

I love the Editions Mego rerelease of Sheer Hellish Miasma. After a shitty or stressful, I'll come home, put it on, put the volume up to 10.5 (I want to save my hearing), and my brain is cleaned out, along whatever other viscera is in my cranium.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:51pm Kat in Chicago:

I keep forgetting to keep an eye out for Kevin Drumm when I'm out running errands, as he apparently lives within a mile of me. Would be funny to see him in the frozen foods aisle or something.
Avatar    Wed. 3/20/13 7:52pm anne:

@ngh, wow that has been a long time! i'm waiting on word from NPS, an app process of 3 months, moved to the first stage of qualifying and then the sequester hit, most probably defunding the positions.
