Banned Rehearsal 617 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Isabel K, Aaron Keyt, Neal Kosály-Meyer [September 2001]
toy boats bobbing in the bay
low organ throb
indicator measures and creates hidden pulse
(great spring sound!)
rhythm is a social event
what shifts in the ear when pitches change
the soil the wind the orbit
bell and drum ritual

Banned Rehearsal 697 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Neal Kosály-Meyer [February 2006]
bucket brigade messages
a triangular circle
or tuning to each other in a fluid sense
lovely how it refrains from shredding
even when louder
(long long protracted)
wanders into the casing

The Chronicles of Dirty Dick Part 1 - Antique Scream [from The Chronicles of Dirty Dick]
Pink Floyd fade
up to wide
vibrato capable vocal
seriously uptight brings
the forces together
but slowly piece
by piece relax
to allow full
weight to be
thrown around stops
to start again
Preening Bad Boy.
We Are Climbing Jacob's Ladder (Autoheterophony) - Keith Eisenbrey
Like a chorus o' angles! (Karen's comment).
The Barelye Breake - William Byrd - Elizabeth Farr
Finely tuned adjustments over the phrase, section, and movement breaks. Far more category shifts than simple butt joints would intimate. Early sense of variations, or changes: the theme is not a structure but a thread within possibilities.
Die Kunst der Fuge Contrapunctus XVI Inversus - J. S. Bach - Lionel Rogg
The fugue is an analytical tool for composers, it is used to pry tunes apart. Surgeon: "Stretto! Inversion! Diminution! Sponge! Suction!"
Sweet Little Papa - Louis Armstrong's Hot Five [from Hot Fives and Sevens]
big music shaped by minute attitudes of the mouth
On The Sunny Side - Don Albert [from Alan Lowe's That Devilin' Tune]
New Found Land - Woody Guthrie [from The Columbia River Collection]
Living in the light of the morning. One of his better poems.
Don't Be Cruel - Elvis Presley [collected from Dave Marsh's The Heart of Rock & Soul]
A ploy or a plea?
from a genre of personal fictions.
The 95th Psalm - Powell Weaver - The Lake Washington Singers, Betty Eisenbrey, Joanne Deacon [from Lake Washington Singers, April 11, 1961]
This features my mom's long-time accompanist and friend, Joanne Deacon, and a fine solo by soprano Kathleen Richards.
Good Lovin' - The Little Rascals [collected from Dave Marsh's The Heart of Rock & Soul]
A rhythmic schema
arising from a lively bed
Love Ain't For Keeping - The Who [from Who's Next]
This is quite a fine little song, whose impact is diminished by the commercial necessity of bloating it out to stadium size.
Louie Louie - The Stooges [from Metallic 'KO]
Garbage rock in the sense that it doesn't take much technique to make it happen (compare with the fancy guitar playing of the Ventures, for instance). Nearly indestructible, Iggy makes a go at it.
Intermezzi, op. 117 #1 and #2 - Brahms - Neal Kosály-Meyer [from Neal's Recital Tape May 1981]
One among many distinguishing characteristics of European repertoire music: a complexity in the
You Tell Me All These Things - Screaming Trees [from Clairvoyance]
No padded seat on this old bike, just tractor metal cold in the morning.
(A connection here: Steve Fisk, who produced this record, is a friend of Neal's (my brother in-law) from his days at Central Washington University, before I knew him. Small world of local music.)
Frogs 910415 - Keith Eisenbrey
one mass of frog sound shifted toward the right
one soloist closer, to the left
dog is in the distance or several dogs or distances
and occasional traffic
very faint with hint of pitch
emerging from the noise as proto-hum
(I recorded this from an upstairs window at my folks house near Coupeville, WA, the morning of April 15, 1991.)
waves of phasing rhythms in soft focus
kitchen talk downstairs
action on the edge of the sound
tink of flatware clock chime
morning breaks pulsing bulbous
flange of air prop traffic
phasing with frog croak waves
a quivering air
we apes converse in clusters of apeclatter
even from upstairs faint as it is
the room resonance of mom & dad's Coupeville kitchen
one could imagine the frogcroaksound as single oraganism's respiration
or the ripply surface of a pond
a jet's hissy roar goes on a long time
making wavelets in the quiversphere
an event in the deep deep bass
Banned Rehearsal 430 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Anna K, Aaron Keyt, Neal Kosály-Meyer [July 1996]
ominous biding banshee
D I R E
the longer the held organ tones persist
the more questionable becomes their intonation
squeaky balloon violin stylings
elephant seal bellow soulfulness electric guitar
whatever this is
it is seriously pissed
drops into conversation mood
tarzanyell grim march
off again to wander ferocious
In Session at the Tintinabulary

Banned Rehearsal 944 - Jennifer Chung, Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Steve Kennedy, Aaron Keyt, Neal Kosály-Meyer
We were in a bit of noisy mood I think.
