  2. Yes! Listened and enjoyed, thanks for posting. Interesting that this audio preview does not appear on the regular BASTA soundcloud site -- I assume you have some special access to secret soundcloud posts. Funny that you posted this right now, since I am in fact right now working on the Scott radio show set list... should be broadcast next Friday night on KOWS if all goes as planned. I'm not an expert on this subject by any means, but instead have only this year began to really explore the man's revolutionary productions and inventions, much due to your promotional activities Mr. Hertz -- I owe you a debt of many thanks for this, many thanks many thanks many thanks. More details on the show next week.

    Hey James, I've been tuning in ... was very pleased you shared Turkey Makes Me Sleepy's SANDMAN with your listeners on Wednesday night -- many thanks for your interest in the Aural Films Goff Bio release! Wednesday's set list was all over the place musically too, which I also found refreshing and the perfect fit for TMMSleepy. Keep up the good work, CIII
  4. This review of TONE TELEGRAMS was posted yesterday (May 19, 2017) directly on the post at The 5 star rating was that of Mr. Bliss -- I personally thought the stars were irrelevant, but the Encyclotronic web blog program thing does not allow reviews to be posted here without stars : Reviewer: Gerbil Bliss May 19, 2017 Subject: Totally coherent sonic aesthetics The amount of care that goes into these recordings is phenomenal. Charles Rice Goff III rewards each increase in attentiveness with sonic treats. This is serious music with a lightness, a light heartedness, that is completely free of pretensions, yet rewards any amount of serious listening (think Pauline Oliveros, classical symphonic music, the most heartfelt jazz) with revelations. Thank you Mr. Goff!!!
  5. Ah, how wonderful. I've been listening quite a bit to the Aural Films Scott Bio of late, as well as to some of his baby music albums, and all that listening has got me sort of preparing to do a special on Mr. S. on an upcoming Deprogramming Center radio broadcast. It will likely be on air before this new album comes out. I'll keep all you Encyclotronitians posted when and where. thanks for sharing the good news...!

    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.
  8. 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!
  9. Degenerate Art
  10. 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...
  11. 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!
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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: (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.
  15. 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!
  16. 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
  17. 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!
  18. Genre Party by Charles Rice Goff III
  19. 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.
  20. 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!
  21. JJ -- very fun to watch and listen, thanks for the good cheer. Where did you get the music for this? What I know as "Coventry Carol" is quite different sounding. I did an interpretation of it (audio only) a couple of years ago myself, actually. So in the spirit of the season, I'll share it with you here... Coventry Carol Luly Lulay
  22. Roland. I am listening to your Feb 24th lecture now. Your "sound placing" ideas remind me a lot of a sound theater in San Francisco that I used to go to often back in the 1970's and 1980's called AUDIUM. (176 speakers spread around a spherical theater space, different live mix of sounds every show, audience listens in pitch black darkness) Audium Are you familiar with this unique theater and/or Stan Shaff who designed it and performs there? Also, by any chance do you know Hessel Veldman who has been involved in Concertzender for many years now? We used to exchange tapes back in his EXART days of the 1980's. If you know him and/or see him, please pass along that Charles Goff says HELLO. Keep up the good work.
  23. I had the fortune of attending one of her listening lecturethings about 20 years ago. It was held in an old church in downtown Kansas City -- free of charge, a rare chance to interact with some of the few lovers of sound and sonic experiments here in the KC area too. All good. Somewhere in my house I have a cassette tape that retains a bit of that whole experience too -- now to the search...
  24. A small slice of Disism's performance from the Bay Area Abject And Unusual Music Festival, University of California at Berkeley, April 30, 1988. Note the "Frippertronics" style tape loop system. Video by DD Downer. I mostly gave up posting videos on YOU TUBE after the Google takeover, but I've still got a few oldies lingering there. The full performance is available in lovely audio here: Disism 4/30/88 (free streaming/downloading).
  25. ... got time for an adventure into psych psound? Taped Rugs has got the ticket pfor you. I couldn't get this archive post to embed on this site, so click HERE if safety harness has been fastened...
