Options Brian Turner: Playlist from August 9, 2016 Options

Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly-played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.

Senyawa  Live in the WFMU studio   Options Engineered by Ernie Indradat    Hailing from Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Senyawa forged new directions in sound by wedding experimental approach with strong elements of their cultural traditions and their musical folklore. Together, Senyawa employs extended vocal techniques with oddly-rigged and heavily amplified instruments of primitive make. Founder Rully Shabara also led the mathy-rock combo Zoo, until meeting Wukir Suryadi, an East Javanese musician who created a bamboo-based electric instrument called the Bambuwukir and began collaborating. Senyawa explores the possibilities of stringed and percussive textures, both plucked, and bowed, noised up, and again dosed with a heavy element of tradition. A number of their recordings can be found on the Free Music Archive, and New Yorkers can see them live August 10th at the Bridget Donahue Gallery 99 Bowery, 2nd Floor. They'll also be in a bigger band ensemble as part of Arrington DeDionyso's residency at Pioneer Works 8/19    1:07:09 (Pop‑up)

good evening. hello Brian! I have seen you have done liner notes for Sonic's Youth reissue of Confusion Is Sex, which is coming out soon. Just before that for Spinhead Sessions. I have found that very interesting. I enjoyed reading it. have you been asked by the band this time as well? all the best.
  3:11pm Mike:

apparently Adam from the Hospitals has been recording under the name "Angel" - no album quite yet but there are a couple of tracks on Bandcamp: https://angelll.bandcamp.com
  3:15pm melinda:

Was that dialogue from Out of the Blue?
  3:17pm Nardo:

I was thinking the same thing Melissa. Great film.

Hi Greenlight --- yep, I did those notes and also forthcoming for the Screaming Fields of Sonic Love DVD of 80s clips which will also have two '80s docs on the band, pretty awesome stuff in their reissue pipes....!
Avatar 3:30pm fred:

You should have some of these as prizes in the next marathon
Avatar 3:32pm greenlight:

wow Brian. that is amazing news! thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Michael 98145:

there were fewer things better than seeing sonic youth in a small club with your insides bombarded
Avatar 3:40pm greenlight:

guys if I want to donate to WFMU right now via PayPal I will do it so by sending donation to donate@wfmu.org? is this right email?
  3:41pm melinda:

@Nardo: it is a great movie. I remember thinking it looked interesting when it came out but I was young, glad I didn't watch it until I was older.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Michael 98145:

@greenlight, i will try that path next time. the FMU site sez : "If you'd like to pay via Paypal, on Paypal's site, send your payment to donate at wfmu dot org."

I really love Ernie Indradat's work. Such a great engineer, every live set sounds great
Avatar 4:21pm geezerette:

Nightmare creatures in the underbrush,eyes watching from trees. It would be helpful to have some background, but on the other hand it's good to hear something completely new to our ears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Linda Lee:

geezerette, do you think a little background detracts from a fresh experience?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Linda Lee:

like i said i started out giggling at the vocal ~ i think knowing more about what's going on might've helped. or knowing that my giggling is appropriate!
  4:24pm Jeremy:

aye for all you folks in the nyc metro area, beside the pioneer works show next week-ish, they'll also be at bridget donahue gallery tomorrow night - www.bridgetdonahue.nyc...
Avatar 4:25pm geezerette:

Hi Linda, I do! I always like to encounter things fresh the first time an then fill it in and reflect. How about you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Linda Lee:

that's been my general approach. now i kinda like knowing a little bit about what i'm getting. i must be aging.
Avatar 4:26pm geezerette:

Oh, you already answered that! I think we're pretty much in accord.
Avatar 4:27pm fred:

You folks are so lucky to have a chance to see them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Linda Lee:

there's a nice little town not far from here called Accord. be nice if we were actually hangin out there today! :-)
Avatar 4:28pm geezerette:

Sounds good to me! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Linda Lee:

i'm not sure where this giggling came from ~ either pure joy or something sillier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Linda Lee:

see, if i'd known this composition was inspired by, say, the death of a close friend, i might not have been giggling or imagining silly lyric translations. :-) i do think some cross-cultural experience benefits from a little information.
Avatar 4:34pm fred:

There are times when I think the best would be to let Arrington de Dionyso and Donald Trump cancel each other in a nexus of nothing
Avatar 4:34pm geezerette:

Sometimes I'll crack up when something new seems overwrought,super dark or humorless. The second encounter often proves me wrong or uninformed regarding performer/creators intention. Sometimes my firdt response is validated.
Avatar 4:34pm Cecile:

I remember laughing like this when I heard John Gavanti for the first time.
Avatar 4:35pm geezerette:

fred i'd like to hear/see that! :D
Avatar 4:36pm Cheri Pi:

this is so baddass.
Avatar 4:36pm geezerette:

Cecile I'm going to look him up!
Avatar 4:37pm Cecile:

it's a project by Sumner Crane of Mars and some other people. It is a very strange re-telling of Don Giovanni. Some find it horrible. I find it hilarious and delightful in a weird way.
  4:39pm Wok The Rock:

selamat malam mas arrington!
Avatar 4:43pm geezerette:

I think about Indonesian shadow puppets; beautiful and frightening in some intuitive way to me, very compelling. No idea what the stories are.

Cecile that sounds funny to me! Glad you made the reference!
