I missed last week's show: I was at a performance of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's Fase (music: Piano Phase / Come Out / Violin Phase / Clapping Music)
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:09pm david w:

Greetings Fred, hey Sem. Fred never misses an Anna Teresa show barring apocalyptic conditions!

Hello! Photo is an RR original?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/26/18 3:12pm fred:

That's the truth. Not sure about that apocalyptic thing though. I'd sure want to be at such a show in these conditions
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:12pm david w:

Heavens no steveo. I steal everything. Lawyers cover your ears (eyes).

Very excited to be doing the five o'clock tango with you, Prof. Weinstein!
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:19pm david w:

Yes, Dr. D! An honor, and a classic Drummer mind-scrambler!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/26/18 3:20pm fred:

Doug! How do you fill your days now that you no longer have classes to sleep in?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/26/18 3:22pm Doug Schulkind:

I am waiting for my new job to start. When that will be, I can't say exactly. Hopefully by 1 November.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/26/18 3:23pm fred:

@Doug: Will that make you give up your regular show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/26/18 3:26pm Doug Schulkind:

I absolutely will not give up my show. I will attempt to negotiate a flexible schedule that will keep me in my current time slot. If that is not viable, I will either move to later on Fridays (following Hinky Dinky Time) or, if I have to, sometime on the weekend. But the show will for sure continue.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:27pm david w:

Drummers are also jugglers.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:29pm glenn:

that probably explains all the drummers with gaping drumstick shaped head wounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/26/18 3:30pm fred:

@Doug: Glad to hear you'll be around. But please don't use eminent domain to move Mayuko out of my listening hours
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:35pm david w:

Yay, Doug! and oy, glenn.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:39pm geezerette:

Crunchy! Squeaky! :)

and hello!
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:41pm david w:

I don't think there is one sound that repeats or recurs in the whole 38 minutes. Hey, geez!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/26/18 3:47pm fred:

Stefania Pedretti (from Ovo) had a project where she would cut up vegetables and cook, with contact mics all over the place, then share the result with an audience member
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:48pm geezerette:

This is one of those pieces that would work as cartoon scores.
Good cartoons!
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:52pm geezerette:

Fred, you made me hungry. Or maybe it's the kitchen implements.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:52pm david w:

Cooking food as performance has a long history. One at the old Clocktower Gallery was soup that had audio tape mixed into the pot. The audience did not eat it.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:53pm geezerette:

(!) :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/26/18 3:55pm Doug Schulkind:

I would never move anyone out of a slot they are happy with.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 3:58pm northguineahills:

david, I was listening to the wave farm stream (or whatever they're called these days) and heard your voice introduce Toshio Kajiwara doing a performance at Roulette in '99.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:00pm david w:

Yeah, that's a great concert. Roulette has a monthly show on Wave Farm's WGXC that I help with. Good catch!

How nice to hear the considerably younger MattyO!
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:05pm david w:

Oh yeah! I neglected to mention his long career on air at FMU! Hi, Tom!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/26/18 4:22pm fred:

I always thought I preferred esthetics over ethics, because I didn't think the former involved a claim of applying to others. I guess I should find another word
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:23pm northguineahills:

O Superman (the genesis). I found a 7 LP set of Laurie's '79 tour, quite amazing......
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/26/18 4:24pm fred:

@ngh: are you past that nasty health issue yet?
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:26pm geezerette:

David, digging the contextual notes.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:28pm david w:

Well, I've become something of a archivist these last years, but not ready to add doctoring for ngh!
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:32pm northguineahills:

@fred: nope, but I have energy for the first time in .... years(????), right now it's just a major annoyance and not affecting my behavior or sleep as much, but it's healing, just at a glacial pace.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:36pm geezerette:

NGH, glad it's getting better!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/26/18 4:40pm fred:

@ngh: not ideal, but I'll take healing at a glacial pace over not healing at all. I hope the healing will speed up
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:52pm david w:

The great and under-recognized Lary 7 could easily have been on this program featuring brilliant and generous inventor/designer/composers, but I'm thinking to do a whole show with 7. In case you were drawing up a list of omissions....
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:54pm geezerette:

Thanks, David and Ruth!
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:55pm Sem:

Sitting quietly in the back taking the whole show in, as usual grateful for the ride. Thank you, DW, team Ridgewood, Ruth, and all. See you next time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/26/18 4:55pm fred:

@david: I don't know anything about Lary 7. So I'm very much eager to hear this. I'll be away more often, but that sounds like archives I'd want to hear
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:56pm geezerette:

Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:56pm northguineahills:

I can't believe I haven't heard of Chris Mann or Liz Phillips until now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/26/18 4:57pm steveo:

thanks for the show David, Ruth and any other secret Ridgewoodians lurking in the studio
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/26/18 4:58pm Doug Schulkind:

The first selection on my show is called "Frank the Lima Bean Boy." I thought you would want to know.
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:58pm david w:

Thanks, everybody. Lots to follow up on here, so off to the next time!
Avatar Wed. 9/26/18 4:59pm david w:

Enjoy, Doug! Beans for everyone!
