No special theme...

Last week I promised on the show that this week I'd cram as many acts into a single two hour program that I could. Which ended up being more time consuming a prospect than I had bargained for as there are literally hundreds of songs from artists off the list in my collection that are under a single minute. Compiling and blogging that set list would have taken more time than I had set aside this week to do so. In turn, I just threw together another "random" (per WinAmp and my editing) list that begins up eat and slows down to degenerate nonsense... NEXT week though is Halloween and as many of the acts have songs WELL in excess of 30 minutes (some an entire hour) I plan to mix multiple lengthy ambient, concrete and vocal tracks together... maybe throwing in some irdials and creepy turn-of-the 20th century stuff to create a spooky soundscape... for AT LEAST three hours if not more.

Trying to AVOID Jass...

Going over the last month's+ shows I've noticed that I've been playing a LOT of Jassy stuff. Fusion, avant garde, straight... It's kind of hard to avoid as a genre in the list a ,many acts delve into it. So tonight I tried to avoid it altogether. I let a couple slip in, but most of the pieces I picked can be called, "accessible but still weird". Mostly upbeat and fun stuff and I let WinAmp choose a "random" mix this time instead of arranging the songs from accessible/uptempo to inaccessible and drudging. All of the file from the last 6 shows are now ready to edit which I plan to do tonight after this, the 7th episode I am behind in uploading. Looking forward to being caught up!

6. Ghedalia Tazartes ~ Transposrts 10 (1977) {Transports}
7. Deep Freeze Mice ~ Red Light for the Greens (1982) {The Gates of Lunch}
8. Steve Beresford ~ Mr. & Mrs. Woo (1980) {The Bath of Surprise}

Familiar to savvy North Americans...

You know, the thing about procrastinating a weekly task is that after 4 or 5 weeks it becomes a chore of cumulative tasks... Anyhow, it turns out the 25 artists I selected that I deem a truly musically aware North American should be... well, aware of lend themselves (with long and some sudden intros and outros and longer than 5 minute tracks) to more complicated mixing than I normally endeavour. 10, 20, 30... up to 60 seconds of crossfade this week at times. A very electronic at first, then rocky then quiet/odd and sombre at the end set. Nice to drift to sleep to. OH YA! AND I MADE IT 3 HOURS instead of TWO!!
