You see a blanket on the ground. It's your favorite color, smooth and soft. You can sit on it, or lie on it. It's a flying blanket, and you are the pilot. You are in control. You can fly anywhere you wish, just by thinking about it. You are the pilot.

Listener comments!

  Sun. 1/24/10 6:18am Looms:

Morning all!
The ringing of the neighborhood church oddly finds its way through the noise, and makes me feel like we're in time of war.
  Sun. 1/24/10 6:20am Dan B:

That first proof of the shooting track seems to have cleared the air. Even inspired a phone call from a long-time listener who usually sticks with us through thick and thin, but felt compelled to comment that the "programming has really gone downhill." This was the band my friend John Brown was in, along with Dan Greenwood, who still has a project called Diagram A. Just got word the other day that John passed away on Jan 5 -- 5 days before his 39th birthday. No idea how. Anyway, I wanted to play some of his music in his honor today.
  Sun. 1/24/10 6:23am Tom L:

Morning Dan. Good that you can honor an old friend in this way.
  Sun. 1/24/10 6:29am Dan B:

That caller's words keep coming back. "Don't take this the wrong way," he said. And he said "I don't mean to be insulting." Plus, he let me know he's been donating for 30 years. What was the point of calling? I guess just for my information. To let me know: you can do this kind of thing, but your supporters may not send money anymore. I said, I understand a lot of people don't like this music. Some people do, though, and they listen too. That's what it means to be an eclectic radio station: not everyone loves everything we play."
  Sun. 1/24/10 6:36am Tom L:

I totally agree, Dan. There will be some weeks when listeners won't like Jozef Van Wissem, or Omar Souleyman, or Fairport Convention. But I for one am here to listen to variety and things I might not otherwise know.
  Sun. 1/24/10 6:37am Tom L:

P.S. Your playing a few pieces I don't like will not affect my donation!
  Sun. 1/24/10 6:39am Looms:

Sorry to read all that, Dan. Mostly about the death of your friend. There's no harm to be seen in my first comment, your selection was to me quite funny before you let know this bad news.
About this bad tempered listener phone call, the best thing is to let it be.
  Sun. 1/24/10 6:51am andy/sunderland:

When I listen to noise it's often thinking about it like positive energy, like ecstatically positive however daft that sounds. Like Sunroof or Incapacitants. Skullflower even and that probably sounds like the firey pits of hell on the surface. Proof of the shooting a similar sort of thing!
  Sun. 1/24/10 6:52am Bas, NL:

Noise to me is a great head cleanser!
Hey, i saw Van Wissem on stage last Friday: It was a very inspiring performance: at a certain moment he stood up and with the slow note progressions going on he started to slowly shake his long haired head like a hardrock artist and.. well that told the emotion so well!
  Sun. 1/24/10 6:56am Looms:

My very first experience with noise music was Haus Der Luege by Einstuerzende Neubauten (though the band cannot be classified as a pure noisy band) and i was definetly interested. There's a funny comment by Blixa Bargeld, he said EN was playing folk music because they used founded objects gathered from the streets of their hometown, a quite interesting viewpoint isn't it?
  Sun. 1/24/10 6:58am Bas, NL:

And a dear Rest In Peace to our greatly loved national DJ Arjen Grolleman. He was THE advocate of alternative music in The Netherlands and he passed on at the early age of 37 this week. His love for music and people will be missed so very much...
  Sun. 1/24/10 7:00am chuck in ct:

been up all night partyin,,,good noise ====got nico???i loved nico man,,,,marble index
  Sun. 1/24/10 7:01am Dan B:

@ Looms, yes, I agree that we need to redefine what "folk" music is. A lot of what we call "folk" has nothing to do with ongoing traditions that are transmitted from person to person through community -- instead, it just means someone with an acoustic guitar who composes songs alone. Pop music is more folk than that because it's what most people know and listen to and do karaoke to. And EN and punk rock is also more folk because it's embedded in a community etc.
  Sun. 1/24/10 7:02am Stannerlee:

Its not always a question of enjoying or not enjoying but appreciation. For me its sometimes about being open to different approaches to music and art and the challenge it gives. Being such a long time listener to WFMU,your caller is probably having an off moment and I have no doubt that the backwards record that you played made up for it.
  Sun. 1/24/10 7:03am Dan B:

@ Bas, sorry to hear about Arjen Grolleman, I'll have to learn about him.
  Sun. 1/24/10 7:07am Bas, NL:

@Dan: He was director and every day DJ at KinkFM radio. www.kinkfm.com
  Sun. 1/24/10 7:08am andy/su:

I remember reading an interview with someone and they said death metal was the folk music of the suburbs in the 80s/early 90s and it makes sense - there was a huge community aspect to that too
  Sun. 1/24/10 7:08am Rachel Malheure:

Besides some sad but true stories out there - interesting to hear how you guys came to noise. enjoying the straightness of noise it became a sort of a logical consequence to me, when agitating the reflectiveness of sound. *Good Mornin'!*
  Sun. 1/24/10 7:10am Dan B:

@ Stannerlee, exactly. That, to me, is what WFMU is really all about. Having fun exploring things and listening to things that aren't necessarily "good," but *are* interesting. Of course, listening to good things is also part of it. But things don't have to be my cup of tea to be worthwhile.
  Sun. 1/24/10 7:14am Dan B:

@ Chuck in CT, here's Nico for you, thanks for the request. @ Rachel, thanks for your words and good morning to you! @ Andy, yeah, I find all this "harsh" music very soothing, actually -- but then again, I'm a freak so maybe it's not and I just think it is.
  Sun. 1/24/10 7:35am chuck in ct:

nice thankx
  Sun. 1/24/10 8:06am fred:

Belated thought about noise: one fun thing is that sometimes at a noise gig I will see some people deeply focused and others just jumping around, and both make sense as ways to relate to the music. Maybe it's the lack of a beat. Not much dancing though, but Opera Mort is working on it.
  Sun. 1/24/10 8:32am Dan B:

@ Fred, yeah, I love how open the interpretation and use of noise is. Plus, it's pretty difficult to commodify something that will never attract money/popularity, but will at best merely drive away *less* people.
  Sun. 1/24/10 8:46am Looms:

There's a term sometimes used to describe these works on noise, "non music". Does anyone have a relevant definition for it? It seems to me a very retrograde conception of what music can be. Jazz and rock music have been categorized as such during the last century...
  Sun. 1/24/10 8:54am Rachel Malheure:

jigglin' contemplative show in lost and found paradises. well done&thnx! @looms callin' it "non non music" could be a progress?!
  Sun. 1/24/10 8:57am Looms:

@Rachel: some kind of

@Dan: thanks!
