Finnegans Wake Chapter 5 - James Joyce - Neil Campbell [from Waywords and Meansigns]

as from in a swivelorbiting teacup ride
the fellows of which filled with pulsing square wave glowers

quiet enough suburban sounds around oblivious
lore is rich with long loops backdrops cranky go round

here's the motor at the heart chugging chug chug tip
under the waves it goes

Aria "La callania è un venticello" - Rossini - Failoni Chamber Orchestra (Budapest), Will Humburg, Roberto Servile, Sonia Ganassi, Ramon Vargas, Angelo Romero, Franco de Grandis, Hungarian Radio Chorus [from The Barber of Seville (Highlights)]

snark within form
form lights fuse
fuse polite tunes
tunes turned to
to revolution

Get With - Ben Pollack / The Readheads [from Alan Lowe's That Devilin' Tune]

that guitar sounds amplified
as richly detailed as the trumpet
the drums must have been two blocks west
instrumental dance for dancing instrumentals

Who Do You Love - Bo Diddley [collected from Dave Marsh's The Heart of Rock & Soul]

same deal
but the drums moved back in
trumpet replaced by loudspeakered voice
beautiful virtual space of recorded sound
cut to fit to the two minutes thirty or so

Symphony in D minor (The Year 1917) (#12) - Shostakovich - Leningrad Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, Yevgeny Mravinsky

soundtrack for which visuals are superfluous

circling lost in the orders of its circling figures
somebody keeps turning the frenetic up

meanwhile in the simple hearts of the proletariat
history's burden bestowed
distant doings afoot

Stop Her On Sight - Edwin Starr [collected from Dave Marsh's The Heart of Rock & Soul]

power coloratenor
barely a song before it's gone

Don't Let Nobody Turn You 'Round - Silver Light Gospel Singers [from The Art of Field Recording, Vol. 1]

tempos within voice
genders of tempos
held together at the tap tap tap tap tap tap

Fire - U2 [from October]

kind of a mess, drifts off in a Pink Floyd haze

Banned Rehearsal 79 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Neal Kosály-Meyer [May 1986]

merge! yield!
recounts a story of the container of stuff they had brought with them from back home
Karen clears her throat
Keith recites in whale a sixty cent bus trip

time and a consideration of decision making
measuring regret and loss
Orpheus and Eurydice perhaps, in another guise

Harry and Maude hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot

remember! merge! forces beyond their con|||| . . .

Once in a While - The Young Fresh Fellows [from Electric Bird Digest]

for those paying close attention, I blogged about this one just last May.
punctuated by insert beats and relax chorus a BRIDGE!!
Big Punkt
to guitar solo Haydnesque affect-thinking translated to song structure
finishes in punctuation mode

The Teen Thing - The Young Fresh Fellows [from Electric Bird Digest]

so I listened to the next track too
clever filler bit of song for between

"...woe my road in spoken..." (second midi draft of May 29, 2006) - Keith Eisenbrey

still messing with tempos and pace, dynamics
seeding ideas into cloud forms
chains and links and daisies

Pretty Saro - Rachel Harrington [from Celilo Falls]

precise pitch articulation
essential inflections


no song needs to be
or could be
more than this

as good as it gets

10 Minutes for Aaron - Keith Eisenbrey [April 2016]

loose hi hat cymbal inverted on antique milk can with mallets (various)
all its sounds' parts and their lastings

In Session at the Tintinabulary

July 30 2018
Banned Rehearsal 963 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Steve Kennedy, Aaron Keyt
