Yay Tape Hiss!!!

Hey, hey, hey Mayuko! Glad you're here....

Forgot to credit the chorus of coughers....

Hello, Tony, and all.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:11pm Tony Coulter:

So, today's Tape Hiss will be on the modern classical/experimental/abstract end of things. There will be some pretty quiet stretches where you might think you've lost the "signal" ... plus coughs.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:12pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy, Stanley and Sem!!

Hi all!

Greetings, doctorjazz!

This is quite a collection of musicians.

Jeff Golick played a track on Sunday a.m. that quizzified the comment board, a blend of static and vibraphone.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:18pm βrian:

Jumping into the stream. Good afternoon.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:20pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, βrian! Jump away -- there's plenty of room for all of us, plus the odd tire.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:21pm Tony Coulter:

Love the sound of a microtonally tuned piano (tho I guess it might depend on the tuning!)
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:23pm Tony Coulter:

The next track on this tape (up in around 8 minutes) features Frodo the chimpanzee, who sadly is not credited on the cover.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:24pm Yvang:

Cough cough! Hello Tony & everyone!
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Yvang!
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:26pm Tony Coulter:

I suspect a lot of audience coughing is more or less a nervous tic . People are worried they might cough, so they do.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:31pm Yvang:

or it's contagious, like yawning...
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:31pm Tony Coulter:

The piece on now incorporates a tape made in Africa by Bernie Krause. It features the cries of Frodo the chimpanzee, plus low-register chimpanzee tree-thumping.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:32pm Tony Coulter:

@ Yvang: Yeah, that too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/8/17 12:36pm doctorjazz:

Not hearing much-the pop up SEEMS to be working...
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:39pm Tony Coulter:

@ doctorjazz: Thing is, this tape (and most heard today) have a lot of dynamic variation. They get loud, but also very quiet.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:42pm Tony Coulter:

"most heard today" meaning, the other tapes I'll be playing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/8/17 12:43pm doctorjazz:

Never mind...
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 12:46pm Tony Coulter:

Ah, good....
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:07pm Doug Schulkind:

Greetings, Mr Tony!
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:08pm Tony Coulter:

Great googly greets, Mr. Doug!
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:13pm βrian:

The kids upstairs! What a racket!
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:29pm Tony Coulter:

Probably should have covered up Jutta Ewert's phone number and address! Don't go bothering Jutta, now....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/8/17 1:30pm Cecile:

hola, all!
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:30pm Tony Coulter:

Ho-ho-hola, Cecile!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/8/17 1:34pm Guido from Cologne:

Hello Tony!
The Good Sound Band was great!
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:34pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Guido! Glad you liked 'em!
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:40pm Mayuko:

Looking at these cassette tape artworks (and I was just going back into your previous tape hiss playlists) made me discard a design I spent all day yesterday. Now working on a new thing. How come these DIY cassette tapes look so good even when they're so simple? Or is it just me romanticizing them?
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:44pm Tony Coulter:

No, I think a lot of them do look really good! It was something in the air. Artwork by the same people from, say, 10 years later probably wouldn't look as good.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:45pm Tony Coulter:

But sorry to make you discard a design!
  Tue. 8/8/17 1:46pm Dean:

"Third and final"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/8/17 1:49pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Tony and hiss listeners
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/8/17 1:49pm Cecile:

Don't discard the design. Just save it! It will have its time!

Having made some of there, and also flyers, the designs were cleaner because cheap copies did not do well with grayscale or too much clutter. And color copies were super expensive. So there was a lot of chartpak, neat printing and getting an image down to its strongest essence.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:49pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Yeah, this tape is almost an hour long, so it's the last full cassette I'll have time for -- there will be more non-cassette stuff, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/8/17 1:50pm Cecile:

I remember handcoloring copied B&W tape covers and Christmas cards because I wanted color, but not color paper or expensive paper.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:50pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, coelacanth∅!
  Tue. 8/8/17 1:50pm Dean:

But...four!
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:52pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Oops -- can't count! Guess my feeble brain was conflating the two short ones I played back to back
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:53pm Tony Coulter:

Good points, Cecile....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/8/17 1:54pm Cecile:

It's like wanting to music back then instead of now. You had to have a little bit of ambition to make it happen.

I love the new apps and whatnot, but I always start on paper, and still like to do hand-drawn stuff.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 1:58pm Mayuko:

Ah, that's a very good point, Cecile! Limitations definitely helps polish a design.

It's always good to be inspired and wanting to do a better job, so thanks Tony for not only the music but also the images!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/8/17 2:05pm Cecile:

Your work is so beautiful, Mayuko (I'm following you on instagram).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/8/17 2:09pm Carmichael:

Late heya, Tony.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 2:10pm Tony Coulter:

An even later heya back at you, Carmichael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/8/17 2:17pm Cecile:

Good stuff, Tony. I like the grinding noises to work to.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 2:19pm Tony Coulter:

Do the grind!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/8/17 2:20pm Cecile:

Oh, apropos of nothing, Bryan Ferry was absolutely magical on Saturday.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 2:23pm Tony Coulter:

Do the grind ... and the Strand!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/8/17 2:43pm Cecile:

Ha, that's what prompted me!

Great show from start to finish, Tony. So glad I tuned in! Too busy editing bibliographies to post on the board, but this has been exactly what my brain needed for the last 3 hours. Thanks : )
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 2:50pm Tony Coulter:

Very glad to hear you enjoyed it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/8/17 2:50pm doctorjazz:

too busy to post much, but enjoyed hissing today, thanks.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 2:50pm Mayuko:

Cecile! Thank you!!! (sorry I was eating an egg and wasn't looking at the comments for a bit.)
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 2:51pm Tony Coulter:

By the by, Tristram Cary (on now) is the son of novelist Joyce Cary (of "The Horse's Mouth," etc.).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/8/17 2:57pm listener james from westwood:

Always a fine mix, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 2:57pm Tony Coulter:
