Options Brian Turner: Playlist from August 8, 2017 Options

Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly-played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.

Alejandro Jodorowsky  WFMU Interview at the Abkco offices in New York   Options     A rare, in-person interview between Brian and one of the most iconoclastic and psychedelic filmmakers in the world: Chilean-born, 87-year-old, Alejandro Jodorowsky. Touted as godfather of midnight movies with the advent of 1970's El Topo and later epics The Holy Mountain and Santa Sangre, Jodorowsky talks to WFMU right on the heels of the initial release of his brand new film Endless Poetry. This is the second of three installments in which the director chronicles his own life and upbringing among Chilean poets and artist friends, as well as his tumultuous family relationships. Throughout his life, Jodorowsky has approached every multi-faceted artistic avenue with ferocity, passion and defiance; studying mime with Marcel Marceau and enacting surrealist plays and events during his tenure in Paris, then migrating to Mexico to begin his journey into filmmaking, tarot, comic art, and psychomagic. His near-miss in creating an otherworldly screen rendition of Dune was well-recounted in a recent critically-heralded documentary. He even has an asteroid named after him. Decades of stunted distrubution due to hassles with Allen Klein's Abkco organization finally ceased in 2007 when his movies became majorly available again, and finally Jodorowsky's mindblowing aesthetic has seeped into more mainstream consciousness and inspired a whole new breed of artists and fans worldwide. Meanwhile, he has simultaneously loaded the decks for a myriad of current and future projects, which will all be discussed today. Also, there will be talk of music from his films, most recently composed by his son Adan (who also portrays his father in the new Endless Poetry).    1:00:55 (Pop‑up)

Since 1988, she had been a member and co-conductor of Hyperion Ensemble with her husband Iancu Dumitrescu, who together pushed the Romanian avant-garde into the hyper-spectral realm. She has composed somewhere around 150 works and over 300 combined with Dumitrescu, including compositions for soloists, orchestras, and chamber ensembles, as well as works based in electronics and computers. I was very fortunate to have a spirited program with both Ana-Maria and Iancu here. She will be missed and all our love to Iancu and the Hyperion Ensemble.    2:43:21 (Pop‑up)

Well, I've never found Kanye's music offensive, just the man. But I suppose I have the same opinion of other 'artists'. Is the reverse better? (Notice I didn't say I dug Kanye's music)

I'm not sure who that critic was that called it Magic Mountain from that UK TV special. That doc is pretty great though linked below, highly recommend watching it. Jonathan Ross was a bit more of provocative interviewer than myself!

Ah, someone told me the label was just Berlin and they were brits. Yr more up than me creamoid

It's kind of crazy to imagine an alternative history in which Jodorowsky's version of Dune had been made, especially if it had been a success. A number of peoples' career trajectories might have look a little different. If nothing else, it would have been a pretty big countercultural touchstone.
Avatar Tue. 8/8/17 5:09pm Brian Turner:

Well, he has said it was gonna be a film to change the universe and everyone's thinking, so yes.
