  9:16pm pierre:

  9:19pm Nikola:

I ran out of sleeping pills. I *do* have a monkey wrench though.
  9:22pm ?:

why do you talk
s oo o o o o o
  9:25pm ?:

B, print the info via this P-list... no need to pollute the wave with:

  9:30pm bethany:

Thank you for your input. Speaking is necessary for two reasons 1: to give credit to the artists who've made the music I am playing and 2: to appear as a human, not a randomly generated playlist maker.

My apologies if you don't like this aspect of my show. You are free to turn off your radio or listen to the archive and skip through the talk. I'd rather we keep the comments here on other things.
  9:44pm Jon:

I'm psyched I finally found something interesting to listen to! Thanks!
  9:47pm andrew:

I learn lots of things from bethany's mic breaks - don't change anything please!
  9:50pm dave:

what andrew said.

also: more audio scavenger hunts planned any time soon?
  9:50pm dave:

oh, and this steel cello ensemble thing is incredible.
  9:51pm Nikola:

Agreed, dave.
  9:54pm dave:

(sorry for the spam)
i didn't know anything about rutman and got curious what a "steel cello" was. turns out (maybe everybody but me knows this) he built them himself. pix:
  9:56pm Nikola:

Those looks awesome. Dan Rathbun has probably drooled all over them. And spam is good. I learn from spam.
  10:00pm dave:

hey, speaking of mic breaks (belatedly): what's this nice airy thing and the sort of plucked-string-and-whistling that bethany typically uses as bed music? i like both of 'em a lot.
  10:07pm bethany:

The string/whistling piece is by Andrew Bird from Weather Systems - an early version of the piece that evolved into "Skin, Is My"
  10:09pm bethany:

Oh, and you guys have caught on to something: my 2008 Marathon Premium will feature artist-made instruments. We'll have Rutman, Harry Partch, Henry Reichl and many others. Feel free to suggest something that you like!
  10:16pm eric:

A really interesting artist-made instrument is the 'long string instrument' of Ellen Fullman. The set of strings were at least 50ft long, played by walking alongside them rubbing the strings.
  10:16pm dave:

thanks! i've heard of Weather Systems before it's obviously time for me to pick up a copy.

yay on the artist-made instruments thing. the electronic version of that is something that i'm really obsessed with right now. so i'd push for something in that vein, like maybe the loud objects or someone from the festival you played recordings from a few weeks back.
  10:18pm ?:


  10:20pm bethany:

Indeed I'm looking for acoustic and electronic stuff. The Mr. Resistor stuff will be there and I have a few hand-made electronic gadgets I'll mess with for a short piece. But please suggest more!
  10:24pm jackie b.:

i sent u mail,,please write back,,thank you
  10:25pm dave:

ooh, also along the lines of ellen fullman: terry fox.
  10:28pm Nikola:

I highly suggest Sleepytime Gorilla Museum and Idiot Flesh. :]
  10:33pm ?:

  10:52pm Scott M:

Cooper-Moore's selfmade instruments are pretty amazing!
  11:11pm ranjit:

Bart Hopkin is the patron saint of contemporary handmade acoustic instruments. http://www.windworld.com/
  11:20pm bethany:

Ranjit is the patron saint of contemporary handmade electronic instruments.
  11:45pm Listener David:

On one of Hatch's recent shows, he played a guy who made his own "electronic bagpipes" Yoshi Wada http://www.wfmu.org/listen.m3u?show=25939&archive=40343&starttime=1:07:24
  11:49pm sm:

  11:57pm bethany:
