• what do you want out of life

    ""What do you want out of life?" I asked, and I used to ask that all the time of girls. "I don't know," she said. "Just wait on tables and try to get along." She yawned. I put my hand over her mouth and told her not to yawn. I tried to tell her how excited I was about life and the things we could do together; saying that, and planning to leave Denver in two days. She turned away wearily. We lay on our backs, looking at the ceiling and wondering what God had wrought when He made life so sad.", Jack Kerouac, On the Road, Chapter 10

    "We hit all the dull bars in the French Quarter with Old Bull and went back home at midnight. That night Marylou took everything in the books; she took tea, goofballs, benny, liquor, and even asked Old Bull for a shot of M, which of course he didn't give her; he did give her a martini. She was so saturated with elements of all kinds that she came to a standstill and stood goofy on the porch with me. It was a wonderful porch Bull had. It ran clear around the house; by moonlight with the willows it looked like an old Southern mansion that had seen better days. In the house Jane sat reading the want ads in the living room; Bull was in the bathroom taking his fix, clutching his old black necktie in his teeth for a tourniquet and jabbing with the needle into his woesome arm with the thousand holes; Ed Dunkel was sprawled out with Galatea in the massive master bed that Old Bull and Jane never used; Dean was rolling tea; and Marylou and I imitated Southern aristocracy. …

    March show – missing tracks

    Listen to the tracks that made it at www.dandelionradio.com

    Those of you who’ve been listening to my three-hours-compressed-into-two March show on Dandelion Radio may be wondering where the extra hour of music went. Well, some of it will appear in my April show and some of it, for various reasons, won’t. With this in mind, I’ve decided to reveal the missing hour of music with internet/myspace links where relevant, and also indicating which of the following you can hear in April. For those that aren’t going to be featured in the April show, I can only encourage you to give them all a listen.

    Tracks that will feature in April:

    Running – We Are Spirit

    Just Another Lover (Keukengerei remix) – Ravage! Ravage!
    Sam Hall - Stuart Estell

    Warewolves – Electromagnetic Impulses vs Crimson Death
  • The End of Summer

    Set 18 2007, 23h01 por foraroundortwo

    I’m preparing for Christmas parties with the sound of a cello resonating between my ears, wherever music registers in the brain. I’m learning the roots of all the words I use, Germanic or Old English or Roman origins, maybe something I picked up reading Beowulf or Ovid. I’m preparing for lonely autumnal nights in bookstores and tearooms and tobacconist’s shops—a young but grizzled man weighing out two ounces of his darkest hand-rolling. I’m prepared to sit cross-legged in the cold, reading old poems or stories of ancient, timeless love. When I close my eyes I see lilacs and coffee in a Goghesque and grotesque sense, the warmth of the coffee waning in the icy breeze that bruises the blossoms of that small tree. My music—Skip James—isn’t loud enough to bar the sirens and swerving cars that litter the boulevards that could be unpaved and growing wheat or corn or lilacs where I could lie and look into the overcast of the coming autumn.

  • Now and forever and forever and forever

    The final movement of the Golden Eternity suite, setting poems from Jack Kerouac's Scripture of the Golden Eternity. I wanted to create an endlessly varied cycle with the text repeated over and over again, in the spirit of Gavin Bryars' Jesus blood never failed me yet. Unlike Gavin, I didn't continue the repetitions for more than five minutes, but it's still a dream to re-visit the piece and double or triple its length.

    Featuring Celeste Axleson (soprano),Teresa Connors (mezzo-soprano), and Ken Cormier (piano).

    Golden Eternity: Now And Forever
  • You are Golden

    Ago 9 2007, 21h02 por CrypticMusic

    Sometimes I write a piece that I am immensely proud of, and yet I can't conceive of how I did it. This is one of those. The second movement of the Golden Eternity suite, setting a poem from Jack Kerouac's Scripture of the Golden Eternity. The poem is only one line long, but it is such a powerful phrase that I wanted to string it out one word at a time. Unlike most of my other pieces I had no pre-conceived notion of the music, I just let it spin out over the structure of the words. One of my most intuitive pieces, and therefore the hardest to try to re-create.

    Featuring Celeste Axleson (soprano),Teresa Connors (mezzo-soprano), and Ken Cormier (piano).

    Golden Eternity: You
  • Everything's Alright

    Ago 9 2007, 20h30 por CrypticMusic

    The third movement of the Golden Eternity suite, settings of poems from Jack Kerouac's Scripture of the Golden Eternity. The text for this movement is quite short, so I gave it a bit more length by applying William Burroughs' cut-up method to recombine the words in some very strange ways. You can hear various permutations of the text bouncing back and forth between the two singers.

    Featuring Celeste Axleson (soprano),Teresa Connors (mezzo-soprano) and Ken Cormier (piano).
