I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Liz Berg showed us the studio, Ted the Dog, Monty Hall, the works. got to peep in at the library too, and my girlfriend was suitably weirded out by the Hall of Velvet Paintings. i identified the L.Ron, which Liz said was unusual. :)

I love theremin almost as much as Tuvan throat singing. Or castrato singing.

Avatar Fri. 5/22/15 1:40pm JakeGould:

@WebmasterHenry: In a real-life smackdown, a saw would always win since a theremin is sound and a saw can just cut the theremin in half.

Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/22/15 1:47pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

sadly though, the audio baffles around the Ondes bounced those frequencies straight up MAH FACE, which threw off the balance, but was still a kick to see it live.

bryce, which recording is this? Not sure I'm happy with the one I got.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/22/15 2:13pm Bryce:

dcp, it's from the massive boat-sinking 19-cd box on warner classics
Avatar Fri. 5/22/15 2:13pm d¢ pät:

oh man. it's completely different than the Ozawa version I have.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/22/15 2:14pm Bryce:

the sleeve says, "This recording follows the text of the 1990 Revised Messiaen Edition." maybe that's it??

it's the berliner philharmoniker, conducted by kent nagano.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/22/15 2:14pm Bryce:

i just love the hell out of this recording
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/22/15 2:14pm kirk from beer city usa:

excellent plural for ondes martenot, bryce. the surgeons general would surely approve.
Avatar Fri. 5/22/15 2:15pm d¢ pät:

well the recording itself is better too--you can hear much more going on. FECK.
Avatar Fri. 5/22/15 2:18pm d¢ pät:

looks like you can get it without the rest of the box. I need my boat intact.

Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/22/15 2:51pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

DCP [2:04] -- must have been about 2 years ago, maybe? We had seats in the upper tier off to the left side; perfect elevation and angle to get hammered by pure undiluted Martenot. It actually kind of ruined the whole thing, balance, etc... But hell, they don't play the groovy stuff often enough.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 5/22/15 2:52pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

@DCP [cont] had to catch them doing Le Sacre a few months back. I must have missed the insane dude with the FMU t-shirt dangling over the percussion section...
