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.

Good afternoon David, Ruth, geezerette and listeners
Avatar 3:11pm david w:

Thanks, geez! Enjoy!
Avatar 3:15pm david w:

Good evening , Fred. Eclectic mix today, yet curiously related (beyond the obvious).
Avatar 3:15pm Sem:

Hello, David, the Ridgewood cadre, radio friends.
Avatar 3:17pm david w:

Hey, Sem. Kinda quiet here today. Slow summer day, no big projects in the gallery upstairs, and storms approaching.
Avatar 3:17pm fred:

This is a great set
Avatar 3:19pm david w:

This set showcases the high point of Ikue's first fully electronic rig. 3 drum machines, I believe. And Tenko was in full flower.
Avatar 3:22pm fred:

@David: Have you ever seen a Sinawi performance? It's traditional improvised music from Korea, and can get close to free jazz
Avatar 3:24pm geezerette:

Oh god, I like this too! A lot!
Avatar 3:26pm david w:

@fred: never in person but I place several forms of Korean traditional music high on my list of "musical things that have astounded me" including for form, phrasing, timbre, and that unique wavy thing.
Avatar 3:27pm geezerette:

Fred, gonna search that on youtube! Glad you mentioned. :)
Avatar 3:52pm fred:

I love this set too. The processing is a nice twist
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm steveo:

hi! so good!
Avatar 4:03pm david w:

Yes, after years of hearing musicians tackle this angle, Jin Hi Kim emerges as tastefully restrained, which ages well. Also hard-working, wildly creative and open-minded, etc etc.
Avatar 4:04pm david w:

Hey, steveo! You know how much I like to see you happy!
Avatar 4:07pm geezerette:

Jin Hi Kim, gorgeous.

greetings David and Ridgies

So pure.

Coel, :)
Avatar 4:26pm david w:

Greets back, coel. Starting you out with a shoulder rub.
Avatar 4:27pm coelacanth∅:

this is very good (but so much i've missed, whilst being "ionised")
Avatar 4:27pm fred:

I don't know why it took me so long to clicky-star the whole show
Avatar 4:28pm coelacanth∅:

ah okay! a shoulder rub's a good start!
Avatar 4:28pm david w:

Fred, you were in the zone.
Avatar 4:28pm coelacanth∅:

hey g!
Avatar 4:37pm fred:

Today, I noticed a pipa-shaped USB key in my boss' office that he got at a conference in China last year. This year's in Paris, and they looked at prices for Eiffel Tower shaped keys: €30 (these hold the proceedings). Then they thought of having the keys embedded in a wind bottle cork: €2. Now they're seriously considering putting those into actual wine bottles as giveaways, that could still fit in the budget

Avatar 4:41pm coelacanth∅:

i'm so used to weird synchronicity.
this reminds me of "ionisation", several performances of which i listened to last thing before tuning in.
Avatar 4:42pm david w:

Oh, Fred. When I worked for MoMA/PS1 we had keychain radios tuned to our frequency made in China. 15 cents US!! each.
Avatar 4:42pm coelacanth∅:

it's like ionisation,part 2.
Avatar 4:44pm coelacanth∅:

(my playlist is not updating, so i don't know....maybe it actually is)
Avatar 4:46pm david w:

Sorry, late on the update. It's Lou Harrison 1941. Ionisation is 1929 ish.
Avatar 4:46pm northguineahills:

Been so busy at work, I couldn't get my woofmoo on....
Avatar 4:47pm fred:

@david: I guess MoMA had some business savvy people around. Scientific conferences tend to be organized by scientists (especially lower profile ones like ISMIR), who are not exactly used to do business (though Spotify is basically buying out the field these days)
Avatar 4:50pm Sem:

What sounds, what sounds, what sounds. Earholes smiling, thank you, DW, and Ridgewood collective. Much obliged.
Avatar 4:52pm david w:

NGH, time out now?
Avatar 4:54pm david w:

Thank you Sem and everyone! Nice little adventure!
Avatar 4:57pm coelacanth∅:

i'm amused to think that, to many wfmu listeners, this is a more accessible version of "ionisation", when most people in general would be saying this is just noise!
Avatar 4:57pm northguineahills:

Yeah, finished most of my urgent work, boss and coworkers left. Headache abating.

Thanks David!
Avatar 4:57pm geezerette:

Superb show! Thanks,David!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm steveo:

super show, thank you
Avatar 4:58pm david w:

Yay, all!
Avatar 4:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Today right now almost, on Ken's Last Ever at 5pm ET...something lovely and interested! Strange sound once collaged live, altogether here: wfmu.org...
Avatar 4:58pm fred:

Fantastic show, thanks David
Avatar 4:58pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks David!
Avatar 5:00pm northguineahills:

Always loved Lou Harrison!
