Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from July 6, 2017 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.

obviously, tonight I'll mostly play Auvidis LPs, but there's an overlap with Chicago 2000 that I'll explain in a bit, so we'll hear a little Chicago 2000 stuff in this first set

in the final analysis, i think he's a pretty minor/medium figure even by library standards, but I've always had a love for his stuff, the best of which is just insanely cool

hyde:

btw, i let this go before and you know this stuff way better'n me, but still my conscience compels me to say: J.P. DeCerf? a minor/medium figure? Bah!
Avatar 8:13pm
Flash Strap:

not to denigrate in the slightest! just that, compared to Hawkshaw or something, who has like ten thousand releases, he's not a giant, and that it's entirely possible you could be into aspects of library music in a pretty big way and not know decerf super well

Hey! I might drink too much Merlot - or these way kewl trax. Or - Both.
Avatar 8:18pm
hyde:

heh, confession: i mostly just wanted to say bah!, because it's so satisfying.

i find library music like Borges' library, so it's nice to find a cornerstone like DeCerf. building a hierarchy of this stuff seems like a fool's errand. of course it might be that those are the best errands.

Hi RevRab! Glad to have you and your merlot on board

I feel the same way, Danny. I actually just got ahold of this LP after only hearing parts of it, so it's still new to me. some Bowie vibes, sort of. with like, Uriah Heep vibes too

@melinda what Flash said. computers are the worst.

Thanks Flash. Actually being without has eliminated some distractions and prompted me to get more stuff done and spend more time outside. The real trick will be to keep that going once I have access again.

that is the trick indeed. i had some really great weeks without internet this spring and i sort of miss being deprived
