Glad you asked: ""White Night" was composed and recorded in the late fall of 1974 at the State University of New York at Albany in the Coordinated Electronic Music Studio (CEMS). CEMS was created by my composition teacher Joel Chadabe with design and custom fabrication by Robert Moog and was, at the time, the largest integrated Moog modular synthesizer studio in the world.

The piece consists of a dense, continuous four-note chord, each note in the chord recorded in a separate pass to one track on a Scully 4-track studio recorder. Each track consists of a single sine wave oscillator which is frequency modulated by a group of eight additional sine wave oscillators."

D:Oers - a question, if I may. I’m mere weeks away from becoming a 40 year old. Currently reading Pynchon ‘V’. What is appropriate reading to prepare myself for “all the feels” I’m sure to encounter in the coming months? Leaning towards John Williams ‘Stoner’ which I understand is positive and uplifting, or Mingus ‘Beneath the Underdog’ because discussed on Doug’s show last week. Recommendations, please! (Dean, looking your way, you’ve suggested books in the past...) thanks!!!

Musical notation, and the lyrics, for a Greek song written in 400 BC were recreated live last year in Oxford, with accompaniment on instruments reproduced from restored artefacts.
  Sun. 2/24/19 10:46am Dean:

@JtotheK: I haven't read Stoner, and I have a yet unread copy of Williams' Augustus, which I have hoped to read since...1972. (I'm a little behind.) Really, I have a hard time calibrating my reading to my own life circumstances. I mean, I adore Anita Brookner's novels, but I'm not sure I'd recommend them to somebody hoping to avoid dwelling on age. Henry James' The Ambassadors? Doris Lessing's The Golden Notebook? If you want hella fun, go for Rabelais' Gargantua & Pantagruel or Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 2/24/19 10:56am fred:

If you like "V", maybe try Mason & Dixon. Slow start (as is often the case with Pynchon), but it's light-hearted with many goofy moments
  Sun. 2/24/19 10:56am Dean:

Oh, man, I fear I'll never get to the Caro LBJ.
  Sun. 2/24/19 10:56am JtotheK:

@Jeff - thanks! And my Stoner comment was in jest, I have heard it’s not uplifting, so I figure might be a rough read. But...
@Dean - thanks for the suggestions!

(Re: finish before I’m 50 ... I have an ever-increasing to-read pile of books near my nightstand, and a list of books to someday checkout from library (when kiddos are older and we go as a fun outing ...) ... which is in the hundreds, so adding another few dozen won’t move the needle. At this point it’ll take me 40 years just to read what I’ve identified as wanting to read to this point. Ha ha.)

  Sun. 2/24/19 11:25am JtotheK:

I had to take a break from Pynchon because the dear friend who introduced me to his books passed away a few years ago (miss ya, Flavor Dave) and I just couldn’t bring myself to read his work and not have my friend to discuss with.
Full disclosure: I’m not all that well read (but I’m working on it!) and read Gravity because my friend referenced it a lot. I was in way over my head but stuck with it because it was unlike anything I’d read before. And then I realized that reading as a hobby was something I really enjoyed (and needed to make more time for) and my friend recommended other books which lead to other books and now ... an ever expanding to-read pile.

When I worked in a public library on the desk, where the mysteries were just over there to the left, I deliberately avoided those ranges, because I sensed a risk I'd start reading there and never return.

Wittgenstein PI, for sure.

Thanks for the tunes Jeff, and the book talk. Unfortunately outside chores beckon before temp drops even further so I’ll catch last 30 via archives . And I’ll be looking into books listed. Thanks again!!!

@fred: great ears: "a traditional Ryukyu minyo (Okinawa folk song), a joyous celebratory classic which is usually sung at weddings, with lyrics describing how “beautiful buds unfold”, using the distinctive Ryukyu/Okinawan pentatonic scale." (I didn't know all that.)

Thx for the Whitehead heads-up, fred.

Chandler is a marvellous stylist, an absorbing read always. Not a large body of work, either. Savour, I say.

Bye, @JtotheK!

@fred: I LOVE The Intuitionist, by Whitehead.

@Dean: I find Tractatus and PI Wittgenstein to be more compatible and consistent than maybe even he thought. But that's only because I use both every day as a coder
  Sun. 2/24/19 11:41am Dean:

Therein lies a dissertation, I suspect, @fred.
  Sun. 2/24/19 11:42am Dean:

Can we now discuss books we despise? Okay, me first. Stephen Carter's Emperor of Ocean Park and John Searle's Speech Acts.

@Dean: No way I'm going for a PhD. There's a radio station I have to support

Bless you, @fred.

I absolutely despised Richard Ford's CANADA.

Also a huge disappointment: Michael Chabon's TELEGRAPH AVENUE. Bleh.

The Nilssen - Love is cool... Guitar reminds me of the slide on some Captain Beefheart tracks

Funny you mention religious tracts, @Brian in UK. Just yesterday I listened to a radio play by Ralph Vaughan Williams, and I read the liner notes, which reported on RVW's lifelong atheism (which might have softened to agnositicism). Yet he adored religious cultural works. I think I'm with RVW.

I share Dean's lack of appreciation for Searle

Thanks for hosting this salon today, Jeff. Good music and talk, as always. See you and all next time.

@Dean: I also meant that particular book. He has some interesting ideas but that one seemed lazy to me

My pleasure, @Sem! Thanks for being here.

I tend to forget about books I didn't like. I might be more useful in a conversation about contemporary dance, but I'd be having it with myself
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 2/24/19 11:54am Brian in UK:

@Dean I love visiting churches but just on aesthetic grounds.

@Jeff: I love music from Okinawa, its distinctive rhythm and scale are so familiar to me I picked it up on a DJ ALF record before knowing he'd been stationed there

Oh yeah, thanks, @UM, and @ngh, and @hyde!
