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.

Hello, David, Ruth, the OAR Experience, the muscle-bound, the bound for glory, would-be out-of-bound-ers, and all.

Throwing the I-Ching just now, pick-up sticks for the future-curious. I'll be listening appropriately.

Ah, the royal steveo. Hello!

@Sem... good words and plenty of past and future reflections coming today. Stay curious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm doctorjazz:

Got to Brooklyn for some live music this week-Nels Cline at Roulette on Monday, "From Cage to Cunningham", acoustic guitar, bass, harp, voice, very nice performance. (One of these days I'll make it to Outpost)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm fred:

Good afternoon David, Ruth and all listening
Avatar 3:35pm david w:

I missed you djazz, was out of town that day. But was very interested in what Nels Cline was up to. Two good shows coming to Outpost in Feb.
Avatar 3:37pm david w:

And good evening to you, fred. Listening to you, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm doctorjazz:

Have seen Nels Cline many times, but never a whole show on acoustic guitar. It was really nice.
What's happening at Outpost? If I remember, concerts used to mostly be Thursday nights (which is my late night in the office, generally can't do anything then)
Avatar 3:56pm david w:

Cool. Outpost shows coming: Purest Butter, Feb. 13 Clebs (Emilie Weibel and Jason Nazary), plus Joanna Mattrey - viola with Tal Yahalom - trumpet and Chris Williams - guitar, stud1nt - Modular rig, Daniel Carter - woodwinds and brass and Jonah Rosenberg - synthesizer and electronics // Feb. 20 Sue Garner & Talice Lee plus Dan Joseph on hammered dulcimer, Jason Cady on synthesizers and Tom Chiu on violin. outpostartistsresources.org

The David Lang piece I kinda heard yesterday featured a lot of words in its first half, but nothing confrontational. I didn't pay enough attention, despite Maya Beiser's play I was focused on the dance
Avatar 3:59pm david w:

I have trouble with words at times. Depends on the setting, the sound quality, my state of mind. Or else I go where you did, watching.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm doctorjazz:

Yup, both Thursday shows... : (
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm fred:

I often don't like words much, though it's mainly narration that bores me (and meaning to an extent). When they're mundane with a rhythmic side, I don't mind, and it was the case yesterday
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm doctorjazz:

There was spoken word at the Nels Cline show...letters written by John Cage to Merce Cunningham. (I also often Have difficulty following words at shows)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm Webhamster Henry:

@Dr. Jazz I know Laura Kuhn was working on those letters for a long time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Webhamster Henry:

I think lyrics are overrated, so that's why I'm so interested in generated speech. My app Enumero is all about that. It's using concatenative synthesis, so it's both realistic and robotic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm fred:

@Henry: How long are the grains? Whole phonemes?
Avatar 4:33pm david w:

fred read my mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Webhamster Henry:

@fred in Enumero, yes, whole phonemes or words. Mostly its counting in various ways. But it also uses its counting interface to link together phonemes, sometimes non too smoothly. The must fun is "Schwa" which makes up wordlets that only have the vowel 'ə' in them (so I only need 125 samples instead of hundreds). Then you can feed the stream of nonsense to other effects like pitch modulators.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Webhamster Henry:

"Sometimes you just want to count something, or count to some number or just count for no particular reason. Enumero counts out loud and expands on the idea of counting out loud until it doesn't resemble counting out loud very much at all. "
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Webhamster Henry:

It can count using Dr. Nerve's "Nerve Events", which indeed is not very much like counting at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Webhamster Henry:

It also has German CONET numerals in case you want to run your own numbers station.

Is Murray playing here? I only hear the guitarand voice (cool track)

Thanks, David, enjoyed the show!

Hi all. Almost missed it. Archive listening later.

Hello, WR. Nice little blues jam coming to ease us into Kenzo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm steveo:

thanks folks; great to hear your show, as always!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm fred:

@Henry: it reminds me of a dance show I saw late last year: they were counting as they danced, but after a while (around a thousand I think) they increased the "by" factor. Another side of it that their voices were affected as the show went on and exertion set in

There's Murray!
