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.

A show focused on duos where they either merge in one-ness or wildly compete for time and space. Enjoy!

Afternoon, Ridgewood folks and all!

Sounds good, David, Hi all!
Avatar 3:02pm weinstein:

Thanks, James, a pleasure always.

Good afternoon David Ruth and Ridgewood people
Avatar 3:04pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I swear it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm fred:

@Kenzo: I thought of you yesterday at a dance show: the music sometimes layered a recorded percussion track and a small ensemble on stage, loosely related. And there were many instances of cello/violin phrases that evoked The sinking of the Titanic, which reminded me of a specific show
Avatar 3:14pm weinstein:

Kenzo might be in the middle of pre-show meditative juggling practice and carbo-loading as he has taken on the mother of all crazy streaming challenges. IMHO
Avatar 3:18pm weinstein:

Meantime, hello Fred and everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm fred:

Well, he is the father of all crazy streaming challenges
Avatar 3:19pm weinstein:

And thanks all for all the nice comments about last week with Shelley Hirsch. She surprised a lot of people with the work we played. Not just improv stuff.

Clearly typing with the tip of his nose, the only body part left unoccupied.
Avatar 3:42pm danjoseph:

Have I heard this one before??
Avatar 3:43pm weinstein:

Only because you were there!
Avatar 3:45pm danjoseph:

A good reason, if ever there was one!
Avatar 4:04pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@weinstein: You've been spying on my broadcast!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm listener james from westwood:

Ooh, this Bassett/Lubelski is great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm fred:

There was video too? This works very well without it
Avatar 4:12pm weinstein:

Weisblat has this rig with slide projectors that fade and into and out of each other. Very hand made.
Avatar 4:16pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@fred: Thanks. I can picture the show of mine you mean.
Avatar 4:17pm weinstein:

@James: Bassett/Lubelski have a new release. I saw the vinyl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Webhamster Henry:

I'm enjoying this of course: if it's a drone, they're playing my song.

We call it a slowly evolving psychostatic texture.

Also known in some cultures as angels.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Webhamster Henry:

I think there's a series of events going on over at LongPlayer today, since it's the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. I think Vicki is attending.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm doctorjazz:

Liking this Gladden set.
Avatar 4:33pm weinstein:

The New York scene always had Niblock's marathon on the solstice. Where is he this year? And Charlie Morrow balancing eggs with New Wilderness folks. Its a good day to be weird.
Avatar 4:34pm weinstein:

@ D'jazz: it changes so slowly, but it is radically different at beginning and end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Webhamster Henry:

Good, because Harry Bertoia deserves a whole day. Have you ever been to the Bertoia Barn, Ridgewooders?
Avatar 4:38pm weinstein:

No, and that whole barn story fascinates me! Encourage everyone to Google the Bertoia Sonambient Barn. Amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Webhamster Henry:

I was there about 12 years ago; go interview Val Bertoia, he's extremely nice!
- - - -
My sister was wondering where Niblock was this year too. I think he's in Italy?
Avatar 4:42pm weinstein:

Traveling no doubt. He's having the time of his life! And thanks for backing me up on Bertoia, it is a chapter of great creativity and wonder...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Webhamster Henry:

Not exactly Bertoia, but one of his gongs is used by the group Secret Gong Orchestra, which is playing a show called Red Kachina in Rosendale's Widow Jane Mine on August 6th.
Avatar 4:47pm weinstein:

Is that super unique? That one of his original instruments is in use outside of his own estate? I know they sell stuff on his site, coming from, I guess, his designs but not his hands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Doug Schulkind:

Home from work in time for 7 minutes of Ridgebliss.
Avatar 4:54pm weinstein:

For this program I am going to fade out LDP to step aside for Kenzo, but I'll paste the whole thing into the file I upload to the archives.
Avatar 4:55pm weinstein:

Dancing Doug, one of our rare toe-tappers just for you and your martini!
Avatar 4:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This has been magical; thanks, David!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm Doug Schulkind:

I am shaking, not stirring.
Avatar 4:57pm weinstein:

Thanks, everyone! This was a fun one. Summer is here...
Avatar 4:58pm weinstein:

Too bad we can't cross-fade. This is pretty good Kenzo bed material. And Doug, oy.
Avatar 4:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh! Here comes a new spontaneous improvised sound collage, "Not a Single Thing" over here! wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Doug Schulkind:

Kenzo magic is happening here, next: wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, y'all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Doug Schulkind:

So nice, we said it twice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks Ruth & David! Kenzo, I'll have to catch you in the archives again!
