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.

Hi Ruth & David: Nice harmonics there!

Hello, Ridgewood radio, and all. Ear holes wide open.

Hi David and all you out there.
Avatar 3:12pm david w:

Welcome Henry and Sem. I'm glad to hear the harmonics make it through the radio wires. This piece is subtle, and sometimes spare.
And very well made.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Webhamster Henry:

It's more a question of whether the harmonics get through the stream compression algorithm, but whatevs.

Greetings djazz, enjoy!
Avatar 3:14pm david w:

What Henry said... this is one challenge of playing things not built for streaming (like 99% of everything else made today).

The Only Chris Brown piece is a Tzadik release from the 90s.

@ngh, and some work with The Hub (Mark Trayle, John Bischoff...)
Avatar 3:26pm david w:

oh, and with Pauline O and Willie Winant, but always in collaborator situations...
Avatar 3:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

GTDR streaming is especially rough
Avatar 3:32pm david w:

Is that because of the content or our specs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Webhamster Henry:

Fo'c'sle is an abbreviation for "Forecastle" , pronounced FOHK-səl.
Avatar 3:41pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Specs, the 128k MP3 streaming ain't the best for some of our things
Avatar 3:43pm david w:

Thanks Kenzo and Henry, I am the wiser now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Webhamster Henry:

Sometime you should stream "Only everything lasts forever" and bypass the MP3s stream:

Kyle McDonald is another Dr. PO collaborator
Avatar 4:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

"the entire composition is approximately 10^450 years long"
Avatar 4:19pm david w:

That sounds like a Kenzo project to tackle. Signal to brain post-biological quantum streaming.
  4:27pm Jane Henry:

Hi David,
No electronics in this 2nd piece of mine. It's all me & that one long Jerry Hunt bow.
Avatar 4:29pm david w:

Jane! That's remarkable.
  4:31pm Jane Henry:

Well, now the 'electronics' come in. And a real bow.
Avatar 4:42pm david w:

Thanks, Jane! And everybody!
  4:44pm Jane Henry:

Thank you David!
Avatar 4:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Loving the bowing
Avatar 4:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Up next on this GTDR stream: "Music From Airports" (what's on your mind? nothing):
40 sound sources spontaneously collaged into one, live on the air. Playful messiness, beautiful nothingness, and a phone call from the airport.
Come along! wfmu.org...
