Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Hallo Evan! Quick q --> have you ever done a show devoted to francis bebey???

Missed you-here on the hot and dry side of the continent
Avatar 7:01pm Flash Strap:

Hello Chresti! Hello Jay! Haven't done a whole show for Bebey, tho i once did a whole set, I think. I've played him a lot

...I'd tell a joke but I already hear crickets...
Avatar 7:03pm hyde:

Avatar 7:03pm jaywbabcock:

Yes I think your show is the first place I've heard Bebey. Started dipping in more recently to his work and realized it was a much deeper pool (going um further back, to mix metaphors) than I'd guessed.

Hi Rev! Hi Hyde! and helllllo Doc!

If you love Moire patterns, check out this book by Carsten Nicolai (aka, Alva Noto): books.google.com...

Yeah Bebey has quite a body of work, and is incredibly brilliant

Hi NGH! will do!

I wonder if Mssr Arpino ever used an Arp w/ an arpeggiator.

some of my favorite examples of library baroque themes on this record

Hi LD!

cool effects on that flute, great drums&vibe, killer bass here

happy to have you with us, friend. happy to have all of you here, in fact! very warm feelings for you all
Avatar 7:27pm Flash Strap:

god, i have some cool stuff to play tonight. what a great run Tele Music had
Avatar 7:27pm northguineahills:

*Looks at playlist* I've only heard of Luis Conti before, and this Bernard Estardy is amazing!
Avatar 7:31pm Flash Strap:

a lot of these guys are frequent faces in library credits, some are totally obscure, and some are all over TeleMusic but not seen that much elsewhere. Estardy is pretty reliably good though, in my experience
Avatar 7:35pm hyde:

cool phasing indeed
Avatar 7:36pm Flash Strap:

reminds me of Keith Hudson
  7:38pm Pigsnoot:

YES! Finally! Go Evan!
Avatar 7:41pm northguineahills:

Ok, leaving work, thanks Evan!

I have a couple of these stacked up on the shelves! great stuff! Your show is the best, Thursday has become my favorite day since your show! Greetings from Belgium!

adios NGH! fare thee well

love this track, Aquatique
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I mean - such great ambient music (or wold be!)
- that isn't - Ambient Music...
Avatar 7:54pm Flash Strap:

I was wrong, I just said Janko Nilovic was Polish, he's not. He's Montenegrin-French. the record will be corrected
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I want this all on my iPod.
Avatar 7:57pm Flash Strap:

the methods and theory of its production is very similar to ambient music, from Fernand Leger's early ideas about "furniture music" to muzak to Brian Eno (who himself did a very nice library record called Textures)
Avatar 7:59pm Little Danny:

Man that is so spot-on Evan, really brilliant
Avatar 8:00pm Flash Strap:

ah thanks pal

weirdly excited about these winter sports themes, they're so damn lovely and lively

this one reminds me of vernon lenoir
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm melinda:

I love these ones with floaty vocals
Avatar 8:10pm Flash Strap:

Music Bazaar, a split LP with Nilovic where both sides are excellent, so we'll hear an ample portion from both Debout (who excels at the vocs) and Nilovic (percussion, all-around great)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm chresti:

yeah! it sounds kind of like greensleeves
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm passiflora:

Avatar 8:17pm Flash Strap:

Nilovic just always extremely reliably worth checking out, total virtuoso on a wide variety of instruments, great writer and arranger of tunes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm melinda:

So good.

this second Lubat track from Vibraphones is an all-timer for me

@chresti: it's Umiliani, a few tracks of his that i edited together to be bed music

really cool cascading flute section

it's pretty good actually, as a movie

chresti i think we had a light somewhere in the house with that textured plastic over it. (probably a fixture my father made) i'm not quite grasping it though...like when a smell gives you a feeling but you can't make the connection
