From 7 to 7:30 pm, a special live broadcast of composer / performer / sound artist Charlie Morrow's large scale maritime performance / radio piece Toot'N Blink, live from New York Harbor between the Battery in Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Featuring avant garde vocal great Joan La Barbara, audio artist / musician / producer extraordinaire Ed Herrmann, the US Coast Guard, and an armada of tooting (and blinking) boats - including the historic retired fireboat John J. Harvey and toots from the steam whistle of the famous, ill-fated French liner Normandie. As Morrow puts it, "Toot 'N Blink "is a celebration of the expanding use of the waterfront and of machines as music-of-the-people, an echo of Futurism."

Plus, on a less nautical and more intimate scale, a visit with two members of the Parisian ensemble Balval, who (contrary to the prevailing political winds in France) are deeply inspired by East European Romani (Gypsy) culture and set Romani poems to music. Balval is coming over for gigs at Drom (NY Gypsy Festival) in the East Village on Oct 3, The Shrine in Harlem Oct 6 and Barbes in Park Slope Oct 7.

Listener comments!

  6:52pm Ike:

This Music of Central Asia track is making my workday much more entrancing. I'm seeing stars. In a good way. (And no I don't usually work at this hour.)
  7:07pm Ike:

For a few moments, I thought this wasn't real because the announcers sound too smooth. Do we call that Kenny G. Syndrome? And who the hell are these people anyway? Send them back to WNYC! Ha. Uh oh, I hope the connection stays OK.
  7:26pm marq:

this toot n blink thing is awesome! what an unexpected treat.
  7:27pm katie:
