  1. What You Say Tells What You Are

    Voices, Improv, Collage, Magic... All music in this collection was performed, recorded, engineered, edited, and produced by Charles Rice Goff III, except "Sensual Artless Beautiful," which was created in collaboration with Greg Segal, who added piano and synthesizer to a raw Goff recording, and who engineered the final result. Some Specifics: 1 "Voxipedic Ambulator" was created for the album: "One Minute Symphony/Apologia De Los Insectos" (https://endogamic.bandcamp.com/album/one-minute-symphony-apolog-a-de-los-insectos), released by Endogamic/Antonio Murga in September, 2017. 2 "Sweven" is a Goff III improvisation, created January 2, 2018. The word "Sweven" means: "a vision seen in sleep." 3 "Sensual Artless Beautiful" was created for the album: "Invisible Ground of Sympathy" by Greg Segal With Friends (http://www.gregsegal.com/invisiblegroundofsympathy.htm), released by Phantom Airship in August, 2017. 4 "Life's Unquiet Dream" was created in February, 2018, out of leftover building blocks from Goff's Taped Rugs album: "Tone Telegrams" (https://archive.org/details/ToneTelegrams), released in April, 2017. 5 "What Did You Do To My Dad?" and "I Forgot My PIN Code" were created for the compilation album: "Twenty-Seven Years Later" (https://generationsunlimited.bandcamp.com/album/twenty-seven-years-later), released by Generations Unlimited/Gen Ken Montgomery in October, 2017. 6 "Choir Ire For Facile Figs" is a Goff III improvisation, created January 6, 2018. "Choir Ire Facile Figs" is an anagram of "Charles Rice Goff III." The word "for" is a handy English preposition. 7 "Oligarchies Ice Riff" is a Goff III improvisation, created January 2, 2018. "Oligarchies Ice Riff" is an anagram of "Charles Rice Goff III." 8 "Catwalks In Sandusky Manor" is a segment of a much longer Goff III improvisation, recorded on August 15, 2017. It was extracted to serve as the soundtrack for a video Goff produced in December, 2017, which features Goff's cats: Carmelita and Climbit. A copy of the video is included in the online post, and a streamable online file is available here: https://archive.org/download/WhatYouSayTellsWhatYouAre/CatwalksInSanduskyManor.mp4 . The full-length improvisation from which this recording was extracted was released in January, 2018, on the Taped Rugs album "The Idea Of Hell In The Bible" (https://archive.org/details/TheIdeaOfHellInTheBible). 9 "Do It For Spiritual Fulfillment" was created for the compilation album: "Friends of Stilletid 2018" (https://stilletid.bandcamp.com/album/friends-of-stilletid-2018-compilation), released by Stilletid/Lasse Jensen in January, 2018. Goff also created the cover art for this album.

  3. Landscape HC-TT Human Controlled Tape Transport

    Thanks for sharing, Mr. H! This thing has some potential for live performance, looks very nifty, nice design. The video shown here would be much less exciting without all the external effects boxes, however, methinks. It also seems like tape players with pitch controls do pretty much the same stuff that this device does, and I've used such in live performance myself several times. Regular old 4 track tape recorders also possess the ablility to flip tapes over and play the recordings backwards, and, used with a properly fingered pause button, can produce the same sounds that this thing does as well. There is a hip-hoppy-ness to this device for sure though, which I'm sure attracts attention to modern performers and audiences. It also is nice and compact, which has many advantages for performing as well. Very interesting. A bit expensive for us starving audio artists though.
  4. The Eyes Scream: A History of the Residents

    I saw Mr. Penn Jillette do the live "narration" for the Mark Of The Mole show a couple of times back in 1982. No one knew who he was then. I saw him play bass for the group on their middle 1980's tour too (last show, Warfield, SF). Most of the official Mole Show Ralph Recordz stuff I've seen over the years is made up of edits and collages -- not the straight ahead show itself, no Penn Jillette, sadly. I, naturally, have a pretty good recording from one of the SF shows from those days. I saw the Residents lots of times back in the 20th Century, used to go to Ralph garage sales regularly, saw Homer do a live demo of the FREAK SHOW interactive DVD/CD at the Mill Valley Film Fest. Ah, those were the days...

  6. Droned And Confused

    "Droned And Confused" is Volume Fifty-One of the Taped Rugs "Uncooked" series of productions. The recording marks the 10-Year Anniversary of the Uncooked series. All sounds on it were recorded by Charles Rice Goff III alone and alive in the Taped Rugs studio in Kansas City, Kansas, on January 17, 2018. It is an unrehearsed improvisation and is presented without the addition of effects nor overdubbed materials. Some short portions of the original recording were deleted. The audio tools employed to create this recording include: Korg R3 Vocoder/Synthesizer Micro Moog Analog Synthesizer Voice Five Below Modified Electronic Sound Generator Ibanez DM 1000 Digital Delay Boss RC-20XL Loop Station Loop Duplicator Diane The Mannequin Hand Copyright 2018 by Taped Rugs Productions www.tapedrugs.com
  7. Where Pathways Meet by PBK & John Wiggins

    The two artists involved in this project show off their combined compositional maturity through the creation of unique tempered noise. "Noise" in the sense of a chaos that lacks the usual tonalities, rhythms, and other patterns associated with what much of what the world considers "Music." But these pieces also generally lack the harshness of tones, the sharp-edged snaps, and pounding thumps that are often associated with "Noise." (the track: "Untitled #1" is a bit of an exception in places). Instead, generally the tones, while they vary considerably in pitch, density, and timber, are very much muted and unabrasive. The compositions offer rhythms and patterns, but they are unique to each piece, and their sounds harmonize in ways that have little to do with notation or key in the traditional sense. I offered the top "star" rating here, mainly because this website requires "star" ratings. I suggest you ignore it and instead accept this recommendation: -- this album will likely please listeners who are looking for something that will promote introspection and meditation, and in this respect, it exceeds most recordings that are branded "New Age" for that very reason. Anyone unfamiliar with either Mr. Klingler or Mr. Wiggins would benefit from making their acquaintance through this collection of recordings.

  9. Conrad Schnitzler Birthday

    Mr. S, or "Con," as he is also affectionately referred to, interacted quite a bit with New York Cassette Culture Homerecording Experimentalist Gen Ken Montgomery over the years -- lots of collaborations, both audio and visual. There is a brand new GENERATOR cassette/online release of experimental music which features a bit of Con plus many other underground artists -- may be of interest to adventurous listeners and underground music lovers... 27 Years Later (cassette album promo) 27 Years Later (Bandcamp Post)
  10. Kecak Cassette

    Now that we got to discussing this whole Kecak thing, I'm discovering a lot about it. It is a big religious/cultural ritual that involves a lot of people moving around in interesting ways -- there's a bit of documentation on You Tube worth watching that I may not have discovered if this whole EA Club hadn't motivated me -- thanks to all involved. Also, the idea that the tape I have is a bootleg of something else is possible, since I've discovered LORD put out some copies of a few "commercial" albums that I'm sure were unauthorized by their original producers. Nevertheless, this tape is a winner, no matter what it's origin! Here's some Kacak in action, skip to about 1 minute in to see this wild unique experience... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGXcnWUqV-Y As for Nonesuch ethno stuff, this one is one of my personal favorites: https://www.discogs.com/Various-Africa-Witchcraft-Ritual-Music/release/4034339 Anybody else heard this?
  11. Electronic Sound by George Harrison

    This one and Lennon/Ono's Two Virgins were some of my first exposures to electronic/experimental music. I was a 10 year old SF Bay Area kid back then, and while I was initially seeking out something a bit more "familiar" from these albums, the exposure I got to the avant garde mystified and intrigued me enough to eventually lead me to becoming a creator of unique sonic experiments myself. I should add that Revolution 9 was a big part of this exposure too. I've heard a lot of stories about how Beaver and Krause felt like they'd been Harrison's robbery victims with the release of this album. I'll just say that whatever dirty stuff that may have gone on regarding its production, the album's sounds got to my young ears and affected my brain permanently, and for this I'm indebted to everyone involved. The 5 stars indicate more my feeling about the whole than perhaps the "quality" of the sounds, but both make up a well-driven road on my synapses.
  12. Kecak Cassette

    I've seen a couple of other cassettes produced by LORD, who put this tape out. It's not Nonesuch, which has quite an extensive collection of ethno-ambient stuff. This cassette is not Gamelan either -- not like any Gamelan I've ever heard anyway -- there's no-to-little percussion of any sort on it, just two lonnnnnnnnnnnng sides of large groups of people singing complex vocals. My guess is there was a lot of dancing going on while this was recorded. I think, Mr. Hertz, another topic you might wish to pursue here in the EA club is a discussion of Nonesuch ethno recordings. I only have a few of these, and my experience with them is hit-or-miss regarding recording and performance quality. This Kecak tape surpasses most of the Nonesuch stuff I've heard in both areas (subjective opinion of CIII, of course, ha!)
  13. Kecak Cassette

    I recently found one of these at a thrift sale held for a local church. https://www.discogs.com/Kecak-Kecak/release/9559867 It appears to have been produced in the 1960's, but unsure. There's no album notes at all, not even a mention that Kecak is Balinese music. It features some extremely complex vocal arrangements from a huge group of people. If anyone knows anything about this tape, I'd love more info.
