Banned Rehearsal 273 - John E, Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Aaron Keyt [October 1991]

I am about
in tone nation
of tempo

sticks to its guns
in the red toad hall
the piano of eliza act 2

hearing J grow before our ears
becoming conscious of one's own sensations
nursery song for the young to join

I'm trying to figure out who's playing what
but the math doesn't work out
pretty certain me on piano, and Aaron on brass
so if Karen is plucking the pluckinator who's holding the baby?

domestica moltissima

a trope of complaint about free improvisation is that it always devolves into increased volume competition
this is the counterexample

a diaper is changed right there on tape

a forest of intervals none heard ever before
we wallow so in the the revel of our mis mal in tone nation

in all the ways
can be

Pressure Drop - the Specials

as the verse descends stepwise
the word repetition spreads
the pressure drops

Carpe Diem Carpie - Wes Weddell [from My Northwest Home]

fishy fish tale
that giant golden horse trough in the sky

We Shall Overcome - Bruce Springsteen [from The Seeger Sessions]
Songs from the Voices on Earth - S. Eric Scribner - Ivan Arteaga [from Storm Sound Cycle May 2011]

an ambience created on the fly cooperatively
Ivan's friendly inquiries toward the sound around him

Finnegans Wake Part 2 Chapter 2 - James Joyce - Ollie Evans and Steve Potter and Co [from Waywords and Meansigns]

M Python radio play in a blender
overheard at its rehearsal
overheard at toothbrushing

multiplex the multiplex narratorices
over the backdrone
classroom at attention

such as it may be
studiorum upstarts
to me or not to me

the game goes on
distinctly understuttered
incipit intermissio

from the table
over a book
read by another

November 8, 2018Concerto in G BWV 1048 - J.S. Bach - New London Consort, Phillip Pickett

shuffling through the stacks for
great oh yeah I remember that's sooo cool! things

deep in the stacks
subindexed scary bass (truly)
almost forgot myself

query the first: how might this have sounded then?
query the next: given how it might have sounded then, among those possibilities, how amazing might we make it sound this time?

Quartet in A minor Op. 132 - Beethoven - Alban Berg Quartett

thoughts circulate in contemplation of an enormity or
but we really can't just not
(a distracting toy)
seek chapelic comfort

4 Organ Preludes - Brahms - Craig Cramer

the tug-o-war among:
the instrument
the space
the score
the performance
the sheer sound
the recording
the abstraction

[blogger's note: Bach Beethoven Brahms (alphabetical order too!)

In Session at the Tintinabulary
