  3. Flexibly Insulated by Charles Rice Goff III and Michael LaGrega The Process: 1) Isolated in their individual recording studios, each artist separately recorded several hours of improvised material. 2) From late January through early February, 2021, Goff performed a number of machinations to these recordings: splitting them apart, mixing pieces together, altering pitches, rhythms, timbres, tambors, etc. In some cases, MIDI and other computer programs were used to change the original recorded bits so dramatically that their antecedents became completely unrecognizable.

  5. Salamanders After Dinner by -Ing -Ing = Charles Rice Goff III & Steve Schaer The evolution of the Taped Rugs audio project called "-Ing" took a big step toward its eventual full bloom in the summer of 1982. Up until then, -Ing's Frippertronics-style audio loop recording set-up relied on the interactions between a Pioneer RT-707 reel-to-reel tape deck and a Sony TC-630. The different ways that each machine handled inputs and outputs required that the Pioneer serve as the recording deck in the loop set-up, while the Sony served as the playback deck. (For readers unfamiliar w
  6. My compliments to Mr. Hertz for curating such a varied collection of sonic experimentation. Clearly the influences of Sir Schaeffer are healthy and growing today. A big Bravo to all the talented artists involved in this extraordinary tribute.
  7. Swinging From Loose Hinges ...an homage to the Doors by Charles Rice Goff III All performances, mixings, and production by Charles Rice Goff III, except where noted. This collection of songs is a not-for-profit, art-for-art's-sake project. No rights are claimed to the original Doors songs. These recordings were produced between December, 2018, and June, 2019. From The Artist: Last October, as I embarked on my 60th trip around the sun, I began conceiving a collection of interpretations of music by the Doors. Misters Densmore, Krieger, Manzarek, and Morrison had aut
  8. Just to understand correctly... this lovely invitation says: share their new or previously composed dedication and email your unpublished track so, my question here -- must the recording be "unpublished" ? Is a "previously composed" and previously published recording ok? Thanks for producing this project, Jack!

  10. Jack Hertz recordings on this week's Deprogramming Center radio broadcast!.  Distracted by family feline health concerns, I missed posting an announcement for this program here for all of you late night radio listeners in California's wine country.  But you can still hear this show (for the next couple of weeks at least) at the link below.  A little background on our Encyclotronic host and some spacy (literally) music for your entertainment and edification.  This show also features long term recording artist and another spacy composer, Phil Klampe.

      FYI, for all you radio DJs, you also have a comments section on your show calendar page that you can, and should, make regular updates to. Might be more accessible to people who look at the calendar, if that's preferred. (Y)

      Nice post CIIIGoff, I'm listening now and thinking about the Krell music thing. Jack Hertz In order to create anything Krell related to the film is a difficult task. At first I was thinking of a back story but as they had all died long before the time setting of the film it becomes much easier to write Krell music that is not related to it at all, though the environment, both natural and psychic, is consistent to the film's present and past tenses. I have stuff that came from a patch I created for the MicroKorg about 5 or 6 years ago and something I came up with in software during the last couple of months (though finding that in the midst of backups from multiple computer changes will be an interesting task) that are both more or less focused on this topic already and as I tend to write short things I should be able to merge those with something new conceptually totalling less than 5 minutes. My one question is when you say 'mastered' what does that mean in terms of -dB, which I understand and LUFS etc which I don't ? 

      ... Great programme. 'forM' was a wonderful find :)

  12. A Visit To The Raymond Scott Sound Archive


    There exists at the University Of Missouri in Kansas City a huge research library of sound recordings, called the "Marr Sound Archive."  My wife, Karen, and I took a little trip there on Monday, June 4, to listen to a few rare tapes made by the legendary Raymond Scott.  We had a unique and very pleasant experience.

    The Marr Archive houses copies of millions of records, cylinders, tapes, CDs, digital audio files -- all sizes, shapes, lengths, etc. -- all types of artists from all over the world.  There are several "special" collections there as well, including the most extensive collection of Raymond Scott recordings anywhere.  The Scott collection contains not only commercially-released productions, but lots and lots of one-of-a-kind items recorded on lathe cut lacquer disks and reel to reel tapes -- radio shows, practice sessions, electronic sound experiments, etc.

    Raymond Scott  was a genius musician and arranger, and was also the inventor of some of the earliest electronic synthesizers.  His work influenced artists all over the world from the 1930's to the 1980's, and continues to do so today.  His jazz and orchestral recordings are quirky and inventive; some have become permanently embedded in the public consciousness due to Warner Brothers purchasing and adapting them as soundtracks for Looney Toons.  In the 1940's, Scott started creating all sorts of electronic instruments and playing around with recording technology, producing sounds that human beings had never heard (nor imagined) before.  For more extensive background on Scott, go here:

    Official Raymond Scott Website

    The Marr Archive is a research library, and the staff is very mindful of copyrights. Appointments for listening must be arranged in advance, and listening is only allowed in-house (no internet audio files are available).  For the sake of preserving rare recordings, guests don't get to handle original materials and only get to listen to digitized audio.   Many of the Scott recordings at the library have been digitized, but some haven't, and if you want to hear something that isn't digitized, you are obliged to pay $70/hour for a technician to digitize it for you.  To offset all of these rules, the staff at the archive is very helpful and welcoming to guests, which makes a trip to the library a fun and easy experience (at least it was for us).   For more information about the Raymond Scott collection, go here: 

    Marr Archive Raymond Scott Collection 

    Karen and I arranged to hear four recordings while we were there -- about 1 1/2 hours of material.   The library specialist with whom I arranged our visit, Andrew Hansbrough, had prepared a computer terminal with the materials I requested, but he went well beyond that in welcoming us to the Marr Archive.  He gave us a personal tour of the entire place.  This included demonstrations of some very ancient sound equipment and of the GIANT robot system that retrieves huge palettes of recordings from a vault that extends up several floors into a huge dark void.  Among other unique items, he showed us some 20 inch disks made of lacquer on glass during the 1940's (the USA needed all its metal for the war effort back then).   Really nice guy!

    The recordings that Karen and I heard included tapes of experiments made with various versions of Scott's "Electronium" and one tape of advertisement out takes from 1960.  None of this stuff has ever been made available to the general public outside of the Marr Archive.  The electronium materials were as engaging as any electronic music I've ever heard, ranging in form from rhythmic sounds, to lovely washes, to complete dissonant wildness.  The 1960 adverts we heard were obviously being arranged on the spot with some very talented musicians -- the same products (and verbiage) being presented and re-presented in all sorts of genres and styles to determine how best to sell them.

    Special thanks to Encyclotronic's Jack Hertz for placing the Raymond Scott Sound Archive into my awareness several months ago -- this is truly something that all Kansas City musicians and recording artists should know about and visit!

      Wowie! I am so glad you managed to make out there. What an amazing thing. I am going to have to visit one of these days. Really and truly, I will. 

      If you liked that. Maybe you can make it to the Festival in September?

    OOO... Neat-o! Break a Martian leg and have fun; I'll try to toon in -- just wondering about your promo sign though -- is "Stanta Cruz" that cool boardwalk town on the coast of Amazonis Planitia?
  14. Mr. Hertz -- will be attending the M Fest? If so, will you be making a report(z) to the readers here? This piece of equipment is appealing; I love the Micromoog-ish presentation and the pretty colors -- if only you could get all the Encyclotronic members to chip in a little $ and hold a raffle... ah, there I am dreaming again...
  15. On February 4, 2017, Michael LaGrega and C. Goff III got together at LaGrega's studio in Leawood, Kansas, to record some percussion improvisations. They planned to refine these recordings into edits akin to sonic skeletal supports, on which musical accompaniments could be hung at a later date. The battery of instrumentation used in this session included a wide variety of percussion instruments and non-instruments, some synthesized percussive sound generators, and a few electronic sound modifiers. Of all the recordings produced that day, only the one offered here possessed qualities that di
