    Good show. I especially enjoyed the Katarina Zavaloka piece. I used to send tapes to the radio station at UVic out on Vancouver Island back in the 80's -- got some nice playlists back from them in the day. Back then I had some great musical exchanges with Canadians from all over the country too, but I haven't heard from most of those artists in years. There is one I still hear from every once in a while though -- ever listen to Jaws Of The Flying Carpet? Keep up the good work James.
  3. Hmmm... This DOES look interesting, thanks for posting. Since the 1980's I've been using a Micronta (Radio Shack) Biofeedback Monitor to generate unique tones into various sound projects. I brought it with me to use in my performance at the Denver Noise Fest in 2010 as well -- 'twas a hit!

  5. I saw the world premier of Compassion when TR played a benefit with the Tubes at Bimbos in SF in late 1980. It was just a month or two before this show that Rundgren had been robbed in his home, tied up by the robbers as they picked over his stuff, humming "I Saw The Light." I've always thought that the Healing album was created as a salve for the wounds suffered during this incident. If it had been me going through all this, I'm sure I would have created an album to help sooth the pain...
  6. Ah yes, here's a place I can respond to the Lockington interview. At this point, I'd simply say Job Well Done, Jack! The similarity of this story to Bradbury's Chronicles brings the subject close to home (got a couple of related albums in the Taped Rugs Catalog). And, of course, the salvaging and creation of instruments from non-instruments is also very near and dear to my heart. Always glad to see opportunities for the world to expand its sonic awareness. Keep spreading the news!
  7. This week's Deprogramming Center is worth a listen for all interested in new-classical and percussive orchestration. Here live on KOWS: KOWS Here any time for the next month: Deprogramming Center
  8. Well, no question that the Hillage Green Preservation Society is in full flower here. Glad to be of some service in the cause. My goodness, typing all that info about the box set must have taken a day or two or three. Rock on brothers! Keep up the good work.
  9. I guess you know that Mr. Hillage has just released a big box set which includes some unreleased System 7 stuff as well as a lot of older recordings, live stuff, remixes, etc. A few weeks back I tuned into this live interview on he did (two hours) on a little British radio station. I believe the full show is available on the link below for anyone interested, includes him playing music from people who have influenced him and lots of stuff from the box set: https://beta.mixcloud.com/interestin...llage-special/ (I hope this link still works... like I said, I heard it as it happened...) Keep up the good work, Jon, you've been sharing lots of interesting music here of late.
  10. Thanks Jack. A lot to absorb here! I'll soak it in over the coming days. Keep up the good work -- sharing the wealth of our shared roots!
  11. Harry Partch cooked up a lot of unique instruments for his various ensembles to play to execute his microtonal and other avant garde compositions. Now, with the magic of internet tech (and Macromedia Flash Player), anyone can play VIRTUAL Harry Partch instruments. Just visit the link below, go to one of the little pink boxes that contains a "play instrument" link in it. Use your computer keyboard or your mouse to play. If you have a recorder in your computer, record the results and use as desired. Many choices offered here, plus explanations from Mr. Partch himself (recorded voice). Harry Partch's Instruments
  12. Luddites like myself can't help but smile at this post. I would have loved to have heard one of those Novachord Quartet (plus organ) performances at the NY World's fair. I can only imagine what may have happened to FDR's Novachord... Thanks for the history lesson, great stuff!

  14. Roger Powell was working for ARP when this album came out -- I've got a recording with booklet of him discussing how to use an ARP Odyssey from around the time this album was released. (edit: HA, I just saw the Jack Hertz comment on the ARP Odyssey! Well, like-minded people follow the same paths sometimes, eh?....) A couple of years later he created the Powell Probe, which was an over-the-shoulder keyboard interface thing for various synths that he could use in concert (before the age of microchips started making such things more feasible). I was lucky enuf to have seen him perform many times with Rundgren, Utopia, and even with Bowie during his "Berlin" years. He's not just a synth player, but an accomplished pianist/keyboardist as well. My view is that Cosmic Furnace is his most experimental solo album, always have enjoyed this one.
  15. That's something I love about this site that you and Jack are maintaining here -- I can learn something new everyday. Nice reeds on this piece you posted here too. Good Tidings to You and Yours!
