"Stereophonic Sound" is such a time capsule, and funny.

They audio engineers do strange things to the sound to give it a wide-angle sound. It doesn't really work, but it's hilarious.

Well stay tuned for an extended gamelan piece coming up. It is the rare jegog performance of gamelan which employs the use of huge shafts of resonating bamboo. Jegog is played only in a few islands in Indonesia because that is the only place on earth where the bamboo grows that large. Stay tuned!!

Hey there, Little Danny! I missed your grand entrance!
Avatar 8:12pm coelacanth∅:

i'll revisit for the entirety of that long track.
music of the morning of the world was my introduction to gamelan and it was c1980 via wfmu. i got the record and loved it but always wished certain tracks were maybe 4X longer
then my aunt gave me bunches of tapes she brought back from indonesia and What a relief to hear!
...though even those songs were faded out before their times because of tape length.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Doug Schulkind:

25-minute jegog gamelan performance is up NEXT!

woohoo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm chresti:

If it's short, I'll play it over and over again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm chresti:

actually, I play long recordings repeatedly, too
Avatar 8:22pm coelacanth∅:

gamelan is sometimes almost trance-inducing (semi-trance-inducing?) so i really wanted those songs to go on & on
...but then that applies to a lot of music. (certain Jimi Hendrix tracks come to mind first)
Avatar 8:22pm hyde:

i heart this record

Still hoping, awaiting, beseeching a few pledges during the course of the evening. Help that little number 10 grow fat with pride!!

My doggie is out getting walked. Probably for the good. She totally freaks at loud noises and thunder. Poor girl.
Avatar 8:31pm hyde:

@coel haha that made me remember just how much my old cat hated the Roscoe Mitchell that opens Jeff Gloick's show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm chresti:

that's kind of like a cat fight, for a minute
Avatar 8:33pm coelacanth∅:

these dogs, though they're "mine" in many ways, are not legally mine and have never been to my home. they've only heard my music via laptop speakers. but i determined many years ago that dogs are usually sensitive to music, and not-too-crazy classical music is the most calming for them. they also seem to dislike punk rock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Doug Schulkind:

@hyde
See the problem is your cat should be listening to Jeff Golick. That Gloick kid's show sucks.
