I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

I once saw Scanner play live for a contemporary dance show, a long time ago. And last year I saw a great dance show (Lucy Guerin's Split) for which he contributed the music. I don't remember the music though (I was too focused on the dance)

I remember a great performance by Pierre Berthet using vacuum cleaners. Sadly there were about a dozen people in attendance, including people from the venue
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/16/19 12:32pm Mayuko:

@fred Dancing with a vacuum cleaner sounds as good as dancing with a floor lamp!

Good afternoon, David W! Happy to have you listening!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/16/19 12:35pm redkayak:

@fred @mayuko - Vacuuming is serious business here w/2 dogs and their human guardians. It's a war against nature, I tell you....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/16/19 12:37pm fred:

@Mayuko: The Pierre Berthet show wasn't a dance show. I've seen some dance shows feature a vacuum cleaner, but almost always as a misguided attempt by men to appear feminist. Ambra Senatore is a delightful exception, but she just mimed it, no actual vacuum cleaner was used

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/16/19 12:56pm fred:

I don't think I could survive long without art. I go every year to the "open doors" event at the Paris art school, a sprawling event featuring not so great art but a lot of exciting ideas, and a few great things each time. I need that renewal. They also have cheap good beer and last year a Japanese student had an onigiri stand. I hope he sticks around
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/16/19 12:57pm paul b:

Somewhat out of character I went to a poetry reading this week -- an old friend I haven't seen in over 20 years. She was a pre-nursing transfer student from Montgomery community college when I knew her. Now she's a famous (poetry-wise) Viet-American poet. Her books have titles like "Violet Energy Ingots" and "As long as trees last".
  Sat. 2/16/19 12:57pm rw:

Joe, we did go out there but we stayed in the casino. Only saw one thing but it was cool. Went to Frieze during installation. Looks like an art fair. Might be fun to get out and see everyone but I get enough of that stuff during the week! You?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/16/19 12:59pm fred:

There was a rewinding sound that reminded me of this video by a Korean artist: www.youtube.com...
(she's wearing a dress made out of phone directory pages, I think I already mentioned her here)
  Sat. 2/16/19 1:00pm rw:

Mayuko, Play Vertigo does indeed have healing powers. Thank you! Personally, I liked when you were on at night but I'm learning to tweak my schedule to include what's most important!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/16/19 1:01pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Mayuko and Vertigo Players!
  Sat. 2/16/19 1:01pm JosephB:

@Mayuko Sorry to hear about your recent unpleasant encounters -- we all know what that can be like. Thanks for channeling your experience into something we can all enjoy listening to!
Avatar Sat. 2/16/19 1:01pm northguineahills:

Verbal poetry is usually hard for me (see public poetry slams, etc), I prefer to read it myself. However, Mayuko does it perfect. I do have poetry on vinyl that works well as well.


..and as fred said, I need art to cleanse my soul, otherwise, I go insane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/16/19 1:02pm Webhamster Henry:

@fred I try to get the NYU ITP student shows, which have a good mix of ideas.
  Sat. 2/16/19 1:03pm JosephB:

@rw I got a hold of a free frieze pass so I'm gonna head over this afternoon. I'm not sure it will be a healing experience though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/16/19 1:06pm Mayuko:

Hi northguineahills! Yeah - verbal poetry is simply hard for me to understand often - since poetry has the nature of making miraculous leaps in ideas and emotions, so unless I am reading it on paper it's a bit hard for me to follow. If it's Japanese I could enjoy the rhythm and sound of it like music, but in English it's harder.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/16/19 1:06pm Mayuko:

Hi Henry! Thanks for tuning in!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/16/19 1:06pm Dropof Goldensun:

Mayuko I agree with rw. Your show does having healing powers. I'm currently having a terrible time at work today trying to deal with horrible withdrawal from a drug I'm currently trying to wean off. Your show is helping me focus less on the symptoms.
  Sat. 2/16/19 1:06pm rw:

Joe, you've probably heard but take an uber. It'll be fun!

Mayuko, if you ever do make a trip to the west coast please don't take the short cut through the mountains during a snowstorm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/16/19 1:09pm Mayuko:

@JosephB Thanks! Not that anything really bad happened, but isn't it funny how negative things stick in your brain even when you know it's a trivial thing? Like you said happens to everyone from time to time I guess!

Love the obsidian and turquoise as well as the Ashley and Durand. It reminds me of John Cage; sort of standup for the art damaged. :)

  Sat. 2/16/19 1:21pm rw:

I do my best to avoid unpleasant people if possible but when there's an encounter I usually try to feel glad I'm not the one with such low self esteem issues that I need to take it out on others.

@fred I do remember the time you mentioned the onigiri student! Understandable since onigiri is the true gem of Japanese culture.

  Sat. 2/16/19 1:34pm JakeGould:

@MaykoPrime: Ha! Seriously, the way negative encounters stick with you is based on humans just being animals. Brains are wired to help one remember. As events to process and understand them so you can protect yourself in the end. But when it comes to humans, lots of people are just psychologically mean. So just teach yourself to walk away mentally. Soon enough, things clear up.
