Doug, thank YOU for GTD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/25/18 3:29pm fred:

@David: Yeah, thanks for the introduction. I could chat a little with her before the show started. She has a nice project coming up, in a bridge. I liked her set a lot, she really filled up the space and moving around changed the balance. Different from the previous times, in part because the speakers were better so she could do more
  Wed. 4/25/18 3:29pm Doug Schulkind:

Tell Ruth I said “woof woof.”

It was pristine.

Hey Ike. We are handing out vitamins and candy to drone lovers today (meat optional).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/25/18 3:55pm fred:

A coworker discovered drone last week, I should point him to this show in the archives
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 3:55pm coelacanth∅:

yay! candy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/25/18 3:55pm steveo:

astounding -- so the dominating organ-like tone: that's the "drone programming"? more vitamins please.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 3:58pm coelacanth∅:

i wonder if i would've liked this as a child, had i heard it.
had i liked it i wonder how concerned my parents would've been.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 3:59pm david w:

I have some info on how that works... David First wrote "HF signal generators/AM radios, A/V Composition + Programming" all coming out of a laptop in performance.

mmmmm.......... drone

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/25/18 4:01pm steveo:

thanks for that info, david; i don't think i could get my kids to listen very long, coel; something very physically satisfying about this
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:02pm david w:

Kulik, and this whole group, stellar.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:04pm Sem:

@steveo: getting that, too. Vibrating something inside, warmly.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:10pm coelacanth∅:

steveo understandable. i think i would've thought it was cool for about 2 minutes then wanted "something to happen"
...i was a young teen when i heard "(no pussyfooting)", which was a step toward flinging these doors open; but i probably wouldn't have been so open to it had it not been Brian Eno.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/25/18 4:16pm steveo:

yeah, i couldn't even get them to listen to Brian Turner yesterday afternoon: "too weird". but hopefully it's all priming their ears and minds to be open more than the average.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:22pm david w:

I'm sitting here trying to recall my introduction to, and ultimate acceptance of, severely minimalist music. Ambient (Airport Music) and some writings by Satie cracked me open. But the deep listening thing where micro-events (Niblock, LaMonte) need to be savored, took me years more to dig.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:26pm coelacanth∅:

steveo you plant the seeds and you fertilize but ultimately it's beyond your control. it's in them though.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:27pm northguineahills:

I didn't even start listening to music that wasn't top 40 until I was 16. Something happened at 18, and by 19 I was almost exclusively listening to noise, ambient and drone. Then, at 22 I rediscovered pop, and then my horizons really exploded.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:30pm northguineahills:

It took my wife a good 5 years w/ me to get into seriously difficult music. Now she travels the northeast just to see the likes of Terry Riley and Charlemagne Palestine, and w/in the last two years, started making like minded music.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:35pm coelacanth∅:

david,yeah it was a gradual process. (no pussyfooting) was a great starting point, because it's droney but not completely droney. it was definitely years after that.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:37pm geezerette:

Laptop just switched to stream. Gonna restart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/25/18 4:38pm steveo:

for me it was simple, just listen to wfmu for 20 years, and blammo
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:38pm geezerette:

Fine now.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:39pm northguineahills:

Eno and Fripp was my gateway right as I was graduating HS, as I was already into shoegaze. I was already in Satie, and it didn't take long for me to get into post-war composition.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:40pm northguineahills:

Although, we John Cage died, the alternative rock station in Jacksonville played 30 minutes of John Cage, I was probably 18 before I got my first Cage record, but that planted a seed.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:43pm david w:

I'm glad you can tell, geez. It sounded like glitches until the trombone came in!
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:47pm geezerette:

I've often thought that you maybe have to be wired for music like this. Hearing John Cage when I was in High School was like a validation and permission to go with my natural tendencies.
Minimalism in visual art is also my preference, natural language.

David, yeah,I stopped what I was doing and thought,"that's not right!".
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:52pm coelacanth∅:

g, maybe you're right -though i hope not! i'll likely never have kids but i have helped raise some and i hope my influence hasn't been for nothing. they certainly never got any sense of musical adventure from their biological parents.
Avatar Wed. 4/25/18 4:53pm Sem:

Thank, David, Ruth, Ridgewood Radio enablers, mind opened wide by today's show. See you, and all, next time, all things being equal. Bye!

Coel.you're absolutely a good influence. Whether it "takes" or not may depend on them, but exposure is crucial.

See you,Sem!
