weinstein's avatar View weinstein's profile Options

Ridgewood Radio features concert recordings by adventurous bands and experimental musicians and restored archival tapes from private and institutional collections captured at venues large and small across the five boroughs of New York. It is produced by David Weinstein and Outpost Artists Resources operating out of the Ridgewood section of Queens, NY, where you'll find more yellow bricks than on the road to Oz and the cemetery of your choice is never more than a few blocks from home.

Well, if we're at the fair, I might as well hit the booze tent...

Hello all. If you want to read along, the Weissenbrunner article on turntables is: econtact.ca...
  2:32pm Dean:

The turntable article mentions Ernst Toch and his relatively famous (and really fun) Geographical Fugue. One of my buddies is Toch's grandson.
Avatar 2:38pm weinstein:

That is cool. Maybe he has some rare stuff we have not heard?
  2:47pm Dean:

My buddy is, perhaps ironically, not much interested in his grandfather's music. But his brother, a writer of some renown, is quite the fan of their grandfather's legacy: http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1996/12/my-grandfathers-last-tale/376730/

My old group did a realization of the Schaeffer piece at the Kitchen back in 2005(?). Haven't heard the original in quite a while....
Avatar 2:50pm weinstein:

Thank you for this. Will definitely look into Toch.
Avatar 2:52pm weinstein:

Tricky to re-create the Schaefer. Did you disassemble the original samples or hike out to the rail yards with a recorder?
Avatar 2:55pm northguineahills:

Took apart the samples, and my band-mate had some recordings of trains he made out in France...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm doctorjazz:

Enough depressing news analysis, time for some FMU/Drummer music!
Avatar 3:02pm weinstein:

Yeah we are keeping our minds busy here to stop the day terrors.
Avatar 3:03pm northguineahills:

This was an old dj staple back in the day...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm doctorjazz:

Sounds like it could be updated Carl Stalling, waiting for the "wabbit"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm doctorjazz:

(The Marclay, that is...)
Avatar 3:32pm weinstein:

Marclay, like Zorn, had a little bit of Stalling in his formative DNA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Rich in Washington:

this show is just what I needed. Jesus, what a pickle we're in.
Avatar 3:55pm weinstein:

Peace out Rich and everybody. Deep breath. Then go into action!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm doctorjazz:

Thanks for the great music, helping with coping!
