Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from November 3, 2016 Favoriting

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Favoriting

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

when i worked at a record store in the 80s (Peaches in Seattle), I learned about Zamfir, one of those artists that lots of people came in asking for but not necessarily knowing his name.
Avatar 7:17pm
Scraps:

thanks Flash Strap
Avatar 7:19pm
Flash Strap:

I might never have gotten into him if I hadn't gotten so into Picnic at Hanging Rock, but that film just locks the music into such an evocative place of the mind
Avatar 7:25pm
Flash Strap:

in a minute I think I'm gonna play another cut from that Phillipino missionary LP with the wacky cordovox

so, uh, GET READY TO GO NUTS
Avatar 7:25pm
Scraps:

apparently, though a generation knows zamfir through tv ads, he's a world-class master of the pan flute, with lots of classical credits to his name
Avatar 7:26pm

yeah, he's the real deal.

*Finally checks the playlist*, huh, it was that Zamfir, very different from the soothing New Age sounds I remember being pedaled late at night in comp cds a good 25 years ago. The stuff you played was actually really good!

Hi NGH! yeah that record is tops, really really solid music. I can't speak for any of his others, but that one is the real deal, especially the opening track which is all-time Important

@scraps huh, that is odd.

i don't know about all the music in that movie, but the main theme is the first Gheorghe Zamfir track I played tonight

and a late, very good Janis Ian album, God & the FBI, was on Windham Hill.

I'll stop now.

man I guess I should explore Windham Hill a bit more thoroughly before I cast aspersions, it plainly contains multitudes

no, no, not really!

fun fact: Zamfir also plays pan flute on The Karate Kid soundtrack

yeah he totally does! that is a very fun fact!

it's mostly new age, when you pronounce it to rhyme with sewage.
Avatar 8:47pm
Flash Strap:

oh this part is really cool
Avatar 8:47pm
Scraps:

Windham Hill, that is
Avatar 8:49pm
Flash Strap:

it really is mostly the kind of new age that leans more on acoustic guitars and celtic harps than synths, and aims to dumbly soothe rather than transport. I do not like most of it at all
Avatar 8:51pm
Scraps:

again in Seattle in the record store in the 80s, Windham Hill was big among a crowd that you could spot walking in. Lots and lots of George Winston moving.
Avatar 8:51pm
Flash Strap:

it's the perfect music to play if your goal is to make me picture an idyllic english forest in autumn, but you need me to hate doing it. Windham hill that is
Avatar 8:52pm
Scraps:

William Ackerman founded it, and while he was good, he was fond of many lesser guitarists
Avatar 8:52pm
Flash Strap:

I mean, Shadowfax has merit, esp. with emil Richards onboard, but I don't really like it
Avatar 8:55pm

My roommate liked Shadowfax, but he said the later, Windham Hill stuff wasn't that good. I haven't listened to it

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm

Just FYI Bombay Talkie is a James Ivory satire about Bollywood, and not Bollywood itself, although Bollywood does have a long history of pretty clear-eyed / satirical self-referentiality. But I think everyone involved, including composers Shankar & Jaikishan, were winking at a different audience than usual ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm
Gary:

^And apologies for the totally unasked for mainsplain-fest there, but Little Danny's comment got me thinking about *why* the music is so different from Bollywood generally!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm

*mansplain .... going back into my hole now ... seriously, thanks for the wonderful show, Evan!
  4:40pm
Flash Strap:

I'd call that just a regular, very welcome friendsplain! Thanks for filling me in a little bit, I've always been curious about it but I'm hopelessly unschooled on Indian cinema so I don't even know where to start with analyzing a soundtrack. Though a basic google search probably would have helped me sound like I knew at least a little bit what I'm talking about....

HAVE to see Bombay Talkie now, though.
