I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

Thank you for tuning in, all!!! james, I've heard Ursula Bogner got played on fmu before... by myself. haha! but I'm absolutely sure someone had played her (HIM!) already, probably Bryce or Daniel Blumin or someone.

Hi, all. I hear Megumi Igarashi is in the news. There's a ruling in a Tokyo court and she's engaged to Mike Scott of The Waterboys. www.japantimes.co.jp...

The search widget may have deceived me. Half the bloody time I can't even find it! But glad she got some love before.

Yes, redkayak! That's exactly where I played Quindar sound from. They are all so cool, those recordings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Ken From Hyde Park:

In other planetary news, I looked into the sky around midnight last night and there was a reddish object that was pretty bright. I assume that must have been Mars.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Ken From Hyde Park:

www.space.com... "Mars is in opposition to the sun on May 22, and closest to Earth on May 30. This is generally a good apparition, but Mars is low in the southern sky for northern observers. It is visible all night in Scorpius." I think that confirms my sighting. ¯\(°_o)/¯
  5:39pm David:

Ken, Saturn is in Scorpius right now.. very bright in the early morning. I was looking for Mars..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, David!
  5:45pm David:

The piece before Brian Eno was surely influenced by Tibetan music. What makes musicians explore such sounds and then claim their music is creative? I'd rather hear the Buddhist monks than someone who is mimicking them. Same thing with this gamelan piece.. the real deal will always be better
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm redkayak:

This has been a wonderful set....
Avatar 5:52pm Mayuko:

I did hear that Tibetan kinda feeling too, David, and I see your point. At the same time, that fact that musicians from my country before and even during WW2 was inspired/influenced/copied jazz, american pops and Indonesian pops and all sorts of different music moved me at the same time. Because it's a move that shows their interest, that they're not closed, etc despite of the censorship and banning of the JP empire. These musical mixture shows that people can interact with each other, interested in knowing each other.

Then again this kind of stuff could easily fall into cultural exploitation & over romanticizing too. It's a big argument that I cannot really do while playing music though, haha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm Stepchild:

Agreed. And in the other direction, fetishization of the original can be too facile and easily lose sight of the way "the originals" often stole and mimicked in their own creative activity...

  6:06pm David:

Thanks Mayuko chan.. I feel the latter honestly but I see your point. It's not always the foreigners who mess with tradition.. Indian guys are now playing surbahar like rock guitar.. an instrument which is so mystical, meant to be played in introspective mood, a real slap in the face of tradition

And Stepchild, you're right.. all music has been influenced by outside sources so I should try to see both sides.. and some of that old Martin Denny exotica is pretty good I have to say
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm paul b:

I would like to think of Ivan Ivanovich in his dream quest across space as a travel companion of Ijon Tichy <en.wikipedia.org..., my favourite cosmonaut
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Uncle Michael:

I believe all culture is constantly evolving, incorporating the influences, vocabulary and mannerisms of everything that contacts it. Nothing is preserved in amber. There may be historical records of various moments in time but they are snapshots of something that never stops moving.
Avatar 6:15pm Mayuko:

That's very true, stepchild. I think that happens in Japan too. It's complicated. In my case with JP "original" for example I admire its beauty so much, but also can't just love it, because all these traditional art are often based on very closed minded values that I felt the need to escape from. Part of me thinks I'd rather have someone comes in and messes up with it.

Hello paul b, I like that! He can have some MAKET colleague!

Avatar 6:27pm Mayuko:

I agree, I think that's how it is when a culture / society is still alive, Uncle Michael. When it stops doing those things it feels like that's when it starts to become irrelevant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Stepchild:

We've got room in our ears -- in our empty heads -- for originals, thefts, subversions, popularizations, parodies, pastiches, homages, detournments... When something is trying to escape or deny its basis, that can be a problem. But then, so much of creativity is actually unconscious that I can't even always fault that...
  6:32pm Dean:

Once or twice, though, culture stops in its tracks and doesn't budge. I'm thinking here of Mötley Crüe.

One day people like UNESCO will release Mötley Crüe, 100 yrs later. Probably they got to that level.
  6:42pm Dean:

Right. A corollary to "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" is "Ignore it and it will go away."

Many things in this world I have decided to ignore till I go away.

Avatar 5:42pm fred:

Thanks again Mayuko, this show's electronic/space vibe reminded me of my fave comic character when I was growing up. Back then I wanted to be her, now it's so embarrassing. That was Yoko Tsuno, you can imagine how that fake Japanese feels even worse by now. But it was empowering at the time, I knew nothing
Avatar 8:30pm Mayuko:

sinister dexter! Thank you for listening & comment!

I Googled Yoko Tsuno, fred, doesn't seem bad to me, and it's cool that she's an electrical engineer. I wanna see what the story is like!
