SquarePusher on BBC Radio 3 etc
This first bit may mainly be of UK-only interest, so apologies, but
Radio 3's Mixing It (tonight, 12-x-98 10.45pm) is supposed to include
SquarePusher discussing his new CD. Well, that's what they announced
last week, but the web site says to expect a session from Tortoise,
either way it might be OK.
Also fairly UK-centric. A new magazine about computers and music
called (duh) Computer Music was launched a few weeks ago. Its cover
features a list of useful URLs including Looper's Delight - world
domination one step nearer then. It also contains a full copy of
Cubasis Audio Lite, and a demo of Acid, and as I just got a (proper)
new PC, its nice to finally see what all that discussion was about.
For the same reason (new PC) I've been reading all the cover-disc
(or more accurately trying out all the demos - most of the mags are
content-free unless you're especially interested in a product
so not much `real' reading. However, I bought a remaindered copy of
Idoru, mostly cos Chapter One is entitled Death Cube K, which
me of a discussion a while ago about Death Cube K/Buckethead - so who
anagramised whom, hmm?
I'm also about to start Ian McEwan's Enduring Love. And just an hour
ago bought the double CD - Rites - by Jan Garbarek which includes
something close to block rockin' beats in places - sort of "I shook
the tunes" (oh suit yerself). And another version of "...gray voice".
But I don't know what it sounds like yet - cos I've go two copies of
the second CD, and non of the first! Jolly nuisance. Live as it
Anyone remember Del Bailey's version of the Lost Chord from the
compilation album with Fred Frith et al?
Well that's more than enough so -
