I have to admit, I'm not familiar w/ Jerry Hunt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm david w:

He died in '93 and the body of work is not huge, recordings have trickled out, but those who saw him live will never forget.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm listener james from westwood:

Yay for grant finishing! And for this piece. I too am a newbie to Hunt and am enjoying it!
  3:33pm Michael Schell:

This piece Fluud was made by intentionally overburdening the Synclavier's onboard sequencer so that it would randomly drop some of the trilled notes.

Hello, Ruth's cat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm david w:

Michael! I'm so happy to have you here and backing me up!
  3:41pm Michael Schell:

This Lattice CD that David's playing from now is one of the few non-Tzadik Jerry Hunt albums that are still in print. It's even on Spotify
  3:41pm Michael Schell:

David, this was an unexpected pleasure today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm david w:

Let's get that oodiscs release up somewhere!
  3:42pm Michael Schell:

A purification after last week's John Luther Adams binge here in Seattle and with Second Inversion, lol
  3:43pm Michael Schell:

The Haramond Plane one is on Spotify but not the others. There's also the video of course. Wonder if the master to that is still around.
Avatar 3:44pm geezerette:

This is wonderful. Intense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm doctorjazz:

Missed the Fluud (they make me work sometimes), but really liking Lattice, great stuff!
  3:53pm Michael Schell:

I believe what's now playing is Hunt's "Transform (stream): core". I just tweeted a photo of him performing it in an Elizabethan collar, a reference to John Dee, notorious for his experiments in necromancy and angelic conversation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm fred:

Could you set up a bandcamp for that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Scraps ←ﬕ::

I first ran into John Dee in =Aegypt= by John Crowley (a wonderful writer, one of best alive, imo)
  4:05pm Michael Schell:

Fluud is on Spotify at least. THere's a link at http://jerryhunt.org/recworks.htm
  4:06pm Tom H:

David W: I recall him explaining that he was using the "whack" of the suitcase to trigger a move by 2 Radio Shack Chess Challengers, the outcome of which directed some UMatic tapes to fast-wind and drop into play at a certain timecode location. At least that's what I remember from 1986.
  4:06pm Michael Schell:

I remember this banging together of a couple of wooden flats at the 1985 show...
Avatar 4:07pm northguineahills:

Thanks Michael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm david w:

@Tom. Yes, he did have tapes search early on before he got his hands on videodisks/
  4:08pm Tom H:

...and it was fast wind against the heads so you'd see this inexplicable streaking for awhile.
  4:09pm Michael Schell:

Did you know that the Tribeca Roulette, where this performance was recorded, is where I met my wife? Not at this event though...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm david w:

Ah, the history...
  4:15pm Michael Schell:

I'd forgotten about these radio (?) recordings (male voice) in the mix. Do you remember if he was using his Emulator for this gig?
  4:16pm Michael Schell:

Any objection if I add the Roulette photo from Lona to www.jerryhunt.org?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm david w:

@Michael - I don't remember any boxes other than custom stuff at the Roulette gig. Lona's photo please do!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi David!
I remember the Jerry Hunt Memorial show at EIF, too bad I never saw him live.
  4:22pm Michael Schell:

Jane, is that you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm Stanley:

I am very much enjoying this evening's show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm david w:

Jane Henry is credited on Chimanzzi, I have something of hers for later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm david w:

Thanks, Stanley. Some more good things coming yet!
Avatar 4:28pm geezerette:

Very beautiful and unsettling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Webhamster Henry:

Sorry Michael, I'm not Jane!
  4:31pm Michael Schell:

So I see, I was beguiled by the "Henry" part, lol
  4:32pm Jane Henry:

No David, I'm not web hamster. I had the good fortune to see Jerry perform many time over the years, from the early 80s to his last trip to Holland, for his last collaboration with Paul Panhuysen. That was in an old dairy barn, and involved live goats and a double bass, recordings of voices, etc.
But it was his performance at Roulette that absolutely astounded me. It was truly profound. THANK you for playing some of it!
  4:35pm Michael Schell:

Jane, you're one of the few performers that have been brave enough to perform Jerry's music based on his scores!
Avatar 4:39pm Friendly Ghost:

the Jerry Hunt music is opening a channel, a stream (??) to unknown feelings. thankful to be hearing it for the first time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm david w:

@Mr. Ghost, wait until you dream tonight!
Avatar 4:42pm northguineahills:

We're hunting a web of hamsters... apparently (this is what I got out of today's comments.

Gotta find Hunt's Tzadik releases, they should be the easiest to find.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm david w:

ngh, there are two on tzadik, one of which I did not touch for this show.
  4:47pm Michael Schell:

http://jerryhunt.org/recworks.htm has info and links to all the released recordings I'm aware of.
  4:50pm Tom H:

Wonder if any of Jerry's video works with David Dowe have surfaced. Several online mentions.
Avatar 4:54pm geezerette:

This is all so brilliant.
My first exposure to Jerry Hunt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm david w:

I am going to run out of time for what I had planned but will include it all in the archive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm david w:

Special thanks for Jane Henry and Michael Schell and Shelley Hirsch!
Avatar 4:56pm geezerette:

Thanks, David, Michael, Ruth and all.
  4:56pm Michael Schell:

David, will the permalink to the stream be posted to http://wfmu.org/playlists/RH?
Avatar 4:57pm Friendly Ghost:

endless thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm david w:

yes, i will have this available in the archive by tomorrow
  4:58pm Jane Henry:

Thanks David! Two hours of Jerry Hunt is heaven!
  4:58pm Tom H:

Thanks for this wonderful afternoon of listening.
  4:59pm Michael Schell:

Great David, I'll link to it from the Web site. What an unexpected treat for a Wednesday afternoon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm listener james from westwood:

Many thanks, folks!
  5:01pm Michael Schell:

Jane are you on Twitter or Facebook currently?
  5:01pm Jane Henry:

No, never. Only email.
