March 10, 2019
Volta I/Volta II - Thomas Simpson - The King's Noyse, David Douglass [from Mascharada - Music at the Bückeburg Court of Ernst III]

The game here isn't fancy imitation, it is the play of motions at each moment.

The Witch (alternate take) - The Sonics [from Boom]

here was raised their Ebenezer

Misterioso - Thelonius Monk [from The London Collection]

ticking sixths
and sets of trichords

little diatonic bits at top and bottom
of each ticking sixth
tempo play of ticking
within the ostensible beat

With a Shout - U2 [from October]

call to arms
drums to introduce it

they mean it
all of them

Banned Rehearsal 95 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Neal Kosály-Meyer

we discuss the immensity of 95
ocarina duet or trio
ocarina, flute (2 of), and conch shell

Liberated Intonation: staking a claim for most particular as to pitch but not shackled by any rationalist strictures
nor Partch nor Rameau nor Schenker

crow spread
intonation of mouth shape congruence

the trick is this:
to be gloriously dissonant
and resplendent in consonance
at once

intonation so pointed as to allow the wobble as an equal partner
as so as
so to as
to as to


(gets to places I wish Aku had got to)

I will speak truth
the greatest sci fi score maker sound ever is the Wurlitzer Funmaker Sprite in the hands of Banned Rehearsal

tarry the twice told tale

this ceremony is to purge the rational

and throughout: the terroir of background furnace noise

Hum Bom - Allen Ginsberg [from Holy Soul Jelly Roll]

rhyme and rhythm

Le Tombeau de Couperin - Maurice Ravel - W.A. Mozart - Philharmonia Northwest, Roupen Shakarian

effortless butterfly flying
it flits
then more frogs
then flowers

neo-classical is its own exoticism

Track 1 - Seattle Chamber Music Festival 2001 [from my mom's private collection]

robustly recorded


a epic battle ballad in 16mm

Total Energy - Thee Emergency [from Can You Dig It]

strobe effect badge: achieved!

Banned Rehearsal 793 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Aaron Keyt, Neal Kosály-Meyer

we are quiet
the familiar entertainer acts as a decoy
we are led by the familiar into peril
it, the familiar, drifts off
we remain

alien worlds leak through from distant wave planes
what counts as big is so so gently, so with such color
what presses in, what pokes in, what washes through

and their proportional irrations

Johnny Law - Robbers' Roost [from Live in Minneapolis]

interaction: the banished meets the banisher

In Session at the Tintinabulary

Banned Rehearsal 977 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Steve Kennedy, Aaron Keyt

Neal had a work thing, but we carried on
