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.

I once did a realization of Reich's, "Pendulum". (a rather easy piece to do, but very satisfying). Although, in uni, a friend of mine did "Four Organs", after I found the score at the music library.
Avatar 5:08pm david w:

james! Doug! Delicious!
Avatar 5:10pm northguineahills:

Fingers crossed I can do the spring marathonn again (job ended Monday).

(a friend of mine and myself, did "Four Organs".
Avatar 5:10pm david w:

Hey ngh! I think Sonic Youth also did a version of Pendulum yes? Quite the racket.
Avatar 5:17pm northguineahills:

TBH, I got the idea from SY, and then found the original version of "Pendulum", as well as Steve's wrightings about it.
  5:19pm ruth:

I saw Glenn Velez at the old old Knitting Factory in the early 80s on was it Delancy St. or E. Houston?? He let me use one of his pieces in the soundtrack of a super 8 film I made for then Performance Artist Jessie Allen.

catverde, hola!
  5:23pm ruth:

Hey ngh good to see you too!
Avatar 5:26pm northguineahills:

I believe the original Knitting Factory was Botanica by the time I got to NYC. I remember visiting the Knitting Factory in 90s on Franklin Street right after uni (moved o'er, a few years later). Then it moved down the street from me on Metroplolitan in Brooklyn. Miss that place.

HowdeeOOs, ruth!
Avatar 5:26pm david w:

@Ruth: original Knit was 47 E Houston around the corner from John Gotti's safehouse. Interesting neighborhood.
  5:28pm ruth:

Right! I forgot exactly where it was-remember it was a walk-up though!!
  5:29pm ruth:

I'm such a sucker for anything w/ overtones!
Avatar 5:29pm northguineahills:

So, technically, I've been to all three locations of the Knit.
Avatar 5:30pm northguineahills:

(djed at Botanica).
  5:31pm ruth:

Then the Knit moved to Tribeca right David? I saw you play there in the basement once!
Avatar 5:31pm david w:

They also tried sites in LA and Paris and who knows where else before it all collapsed.
  5:32pm ruth:

@DW The last time I went was in Wmsburg to hear Liturgy
Avatar 5:35pm northguineahills:

@ruth: the Franklin St location was the Tribeca one.
Avatar 5:36pm northguineahills:

Avatar 5:37pm david w:

Avatar 5:48pm northguineahills:

I have the record from this duo, Electric Kulintang, and I also saw her solo around this time in Berkeley at a now defunct tiny venue, Jazz House.

Hello, Dean. They have a nice mix of traditional and electronic that I admire.
