i have never thought of sunn o))) as a vocal-based band; or even a band with vocals!

But maybe they fry

Atilla gets pretty gnarly.

ooh, nice drone fry
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/1/16 7:04pm coelacanth:

they definitely have an occasional fried vocal.
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:05pm Dan Bodah:

Attila's vocals on this track are particularly fried.
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:05pm Dan Bodah:

(Attila Csihar for those wondering who the vocalist is)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/1/16 7:07pm coelacanth:

just listened to "white 1" yesterday. the vox are maybe blanched, but definitely not fried.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/1/16 7:10pm Marcel M:

Yeah, Dale. Got a lot of play on FMU. Great album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/1/16 7:10pm coelacanth:

always time for monkeychant
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/1/16 7:14pm Marcel M:

This is awesome
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:14pm Dan Bodah:

Love the multiple layers in this particular section
Avatar    Mon. 8/1/16 7:15pm ironybread:

Hm, I could swear Carter Burwell sampled this in his "Blood Simple" score in 1984, but Discogs says this album is from 1990
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/1/16 7:16pm coelacanth:

i'd like to catch a glimpse of the monkeys doing the human chant, but if you get found snooping around they throw you into the pit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/1/16 7:16pm Layet Johnson:

I'm loving this
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/1/16 7:17pm Michael 98145:

and these dramas probably go on for hours
Avatar    Mon. 8/1/16 7:18pm Rich in Washington:

@ironybread: I am pretty sure there are recordings that predate this 1990 recording, so you may be correct.
  Mon. 8/1/16 7:18pm P-90:

@Dan: Me too! and thanks for playing some good Gamelan, I've always thoght there should be more Gamelan on FMU. ((I know that sounds like a facetious, jokey comment, but I actually mean it...)

It's just like marinated cactus
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/1/16 7:24pm coelacanth:

my aunt (r.i.p.) turned me on to the ketjak chant, as well as the gamelan, in the 1970s.
...coincidentally, (balanese) gamelan was the first thing i ever heard on wfmu that made me keep it tuned in. (1977)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/1/16 7:25pm Brian C.:

Was lucky to take a couple of Tony Conrad's classes at UB! So fascinating
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/1/16 7:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Don't forget yodeling.
  Mon. 8/1/16 7:28pm P-90:

Yes, the whole production goes on for hours, there are dozens of characters.
Saw several different productions when I visited Bali, there are a few groups that perform regularly. Of course, they've mostly been doing it for tourists as well as locals for years, who knows how.it's changed over time?
  Mon. 8/1/16 7:29pm P-90:

...and I definitely owned recordings of the Monkey chant on small-label LPs years before 1990.
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:31pm Dan Bodah:

@P-90, sounds great. I'd love to spend all night listening to the Ramayana performed. And yes, there are many earlier recordings of the ketjak -- including the Lewiston recordings released on various Nonesuch Explorer LPs starting, I believe, in the late 60s or early 70s.
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:31pm Dan Bodah:

@Ken, I think I should say yodeling like 7 times since I play so much of it.
  Mon. 8/1/16 7:33pm P-90:

Remember, Gamelan was cited as a big influence by Steve Reich, David Bowie, and one Robert Fripp way bak into the eighties, so there was stuff available. I think a lot of it was limited pressings of field recordings that were mostly intended for Anthro departments at universities, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/1/16 7:34pm dale:

mr. patton gets some neat gargle-y sounds going on there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/1/16 7:34pm coelacanth:

these vocals sound like they're frying!
Avatar    Mon. 8/1/16 7:35pm Rich in Washington:

was just talking with some folks about this very album the other day on a weird music forum.
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:36pm Tom M:

Hi Dan, I bet you'll be "Opening Your Boxes" for a while
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:36pm Tom M:

I think the first commercial recordings of kecak came out in the 1930s -- Colin McPhee et al. I have a recording somewhere I made in 1979
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:37pm Dan Bodah:

Too true Tom M, too true -- everything I own is in a box right now. Finally finished moving just in time to drop the cleaning supplies off at the new house and drive straight to the station to do the show!
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:38pm Dan Bodah:

Ah that's right, McPhee & Hartmann, right, were recording it back in the 1930s...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/1/16 7:38pm coelacanth:

"music from the morning of the world" (nonesuch) was released in the 60s, if not earlier. it's probably still available. it's a good sampler for interest's sake, but frustrating for anyone who truly enjoys the music, because it is several short excerpts from different things. 'nothing long enough to settle in to. (all balanese.)
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:41pm Tom M:

Congratulations! Moving is one of the most physically and psychically draining things, but luckily there's an amnesia effect afterwards
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:45pm Richard from Venezuela:

Hello Dan and all the listeners.
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:46pm Dan Bodah:

@Richard, hello!
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:46pm Dan Bodah:

@coelacanth, Golden Rain presents a larger segment of the Lewiston ketjak recordings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/1/16 7:56pm coelacanth:

Dan, that's good to know. i have dozens of cassettes that my aunt brought back from indonesia - most of which are not edited down at all...many tracks take up one side of a tape, so, edited to that time limitation.
... but none of the ketjak.
Avatar Mon. 8/1/16 7:59pm Dan Bodah:

Thanks all -- good night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/1/16 7:59pm coelacanth:

Thanks Dan!
  Mon. 8/1/16 8:00pm P-90:

I'm just saying, in addition to things like the Nonesuch issues, there were Gamelan records I found in the eighties that were like in plain white sleeves with the name of the record literally rubber stamped in the cover, these were really limited "private" pressings, obviously just made to circulate to schools, researchers, scholars. Field recordings.
  Mon. 8/1/16 8:00pm P-90:

And thanks, Dan!
