olá Dan and Little Bodahsattvas
  7:09pm sandy:

Hey Dan! Thanks for playing my band's EP (Fucked Up), "Our Own Blood" with Tanya Tagaq. We put the 12" out ourselves, limited to 250 copies. If anyone wants one, they can email me at sandymiranda@gmail.com. We don't have distribution for it. Thanks and be well!

amazing cinema! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm chris:

nothing fucked up about this at all! hi, Dan and fryers!
  7:10pm sandy:

Thanks Linda -- there's no bass on this album, though. Haha (I'm the bass player). I just helped by assembling the art layout and managing the vinyl pressing. :)
Avatar 7:11pm Dan Bodah:

@sandy, thanks for checking in and for the info! Love this collaboration.
  7:11pm sandy:

Love your show, Dan! Keeping doing what you do. I love WFMU.

I'm very fried up to be listening tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm chris:

Olga Podluzhnaya's "Blessing of Nature" was circulating on my social media feed this week. people didn't know what was going on, so i was happy to help educate, thanks to you, Dan!
Avatar 7:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

PinkFloyd did a fair amount of this sort of thing early on - 1st album especially...
Avatar 7:15pm Linda Lee:

@sandy ~ i sense you're in the mix even if you're not playing. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Ken From Hyde Park:

This is a very cachy tune!
Avatar 7:20pm northguineahills:

I love Shelley. I miss her in NYC. She did a nice live EP w/ Toshio Kajiwara(turntables) in Moscow back in 2002.
Avatar 7:20pm Linda Lee:

why isn't Peter Stampfel's work called psycho-billy? just wonderin'
Avatar 7:21pm northguineahills:

@Linda: I believe it's more pscyhe-billy..... ;)
Avatar 7:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hmm...1st to say 'Psychedelic Music'...the 13th Floor Elevators from Austin often credited w/ 1st record that called itself 'Psychedelic'...Modal Rounders obviously in there...
Avatar 7:22pm Linda Lee:

'psychedeli-billy'? :-)
Avatar 7:22pm Jeff Moore:

This is amazing.
Avatar 7:24pm Linda Lee:

wow. brava Cristina!!
  7:24pm Luisa24:

I saw Shelley Hirsch and Peter Sampfle and a bunch of other vocalists perform for free this past summer in Madison Square Park. It was all amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Webhamster Henry:

I was just telling Peter Stampfel this weekend about katajjaq!,but he said what he was doing was more like "effin'" so I pointed him to the Beware Of The Blog article on Eefin', and he now says he was meeting with Shelley Hirsch for eefin' lessons (!)

en.wikipedia.org... :
...'One of the first musical uses of the term "psychedelic" in the folk scene was by the New York-based folk group The Holy Modal Rounders on their version of Lead Belly's 'Hesitation Blues' in 1964'...
- That is early !

Maria Lătăreţu is off the charts. Lachrymae!
Avatar 7:25pm Linda Lee:

something about hearing these voices without accompaniment .. they resonate so beautifully.
Avatar 7:26pm Linda Lee:

instrumentation distracts me too much :-D
Avatar 7:27pm Linda Lee:

very cool Henry!
Avatar 7:27pm Tom Miller:

Wait, I think I meant Cristina Pavel

no doubt!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Richard S:

I need to check if Dan has ever played any Anonymous 4. A vocal quartet that does medieval and Renaissance songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm melinda:

I think I need a visual diagram to fully understand overtone singing.
Avatar 7:37pm Linda Lee:

they may be a bit straight on for VF. lovely work though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Bluh ... all I can offer is The Beat Farmers with their singer's silly voice.
Avatar 7:38pm Linda Lee:

melinda, seeing someone talk about how it's done helps get a handle on it. i believe it involves vocalizing + forming the throat, too. changing the shape of the resonating chamber.
Avatar 7:39pm Linda Lee:

that brings out tones that are actually always there.
Avatar 7:40pm Dan Bodah:

@Ken, any particular Beat Farmers tunes I should check? I know of them but actually haven't ever listened that I can recall. @Richard, I have played Anonymous 4 years back -- I love that early music singing, but it ordinarily doesn't fit here. Sometimes I do veer into vocal polyphony though, so maybe!
Avatar 7:40pm Linda Lee:

the shape of the mouth too. the whole thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm melinda:

I still need a visual diagram.
Avatar 7:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Ooo. Chord.
Avatar 7:41pm Linda Lee:

i think it might be hard to show the changes in a still image. video maybe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Dan - I'll need to research the BFers and see if they have anything that would fit the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm melinda:

Video plus graphics would be good.
Avatar 7:44pm Linda Lee:

i'm seeing one of those Cold War-era educational cartoons of the sperm & egg .. sort of thing :-D
Avatar 7:44pm ranjit:

I logged in to put a star on the Ming-De track but once I was logged in I saw I'd already starred it!
Avatar 7:44pm northguineahills:

Is this aboriginal vocals from Taiwan (not Han Chinese)?
Avatar 7:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wow that.
Avatar 7:45pm Dan Bodah:

@northguineahills, yep - Bunun are one of the indigenous groups of Taiwan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Webhamster Henry:

There are some tutorials on throat singing and more info than you'd care to see at www.overtone.cc
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm dale:

'BFers' an unfortunate naming
Avatar 7:47pm Linda Lee:

who's that cute brunette european girl who teaches so well? i started on her videos & actually made progress in a very short time! then i was distracted by life ..

Avatar 7:48pm Dan Bodah:

@LL, you're thinking of Anna-Maria Hefele
Avatar 7:48pm Linda Lee:

yes! thanks Dan!
Avatar 7:49pm Linda Lee:

what a pig i am. remembered she was cute, not the name. shame on me! but she's very good.
Avatar 7:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I think virtually everything gives overtones except electronic synthesizers - which may give a single pure soundwave. Someone once said flutes - but someone else said no way - all that air & stops - & even the person playing... I'm also told a distorted fuzzed guitar actually has *fewer* overtones*: the soundwave is chopped & made more electronic - counter-intuitive to me since it sounds 'fuzzier' - but makes sense in another way...
Avatar 7:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thx! Gotta go!
Avatar 7:53pm northguineahills:

Jumping outta here, I need to leave work. Thanks for the info!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Richard S:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm chris:

thanks, Dan! another great show, now with Vikings!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Too bad the Eagles beat the Vikings yesterday. Have a good week, Dan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Webhamster Henry:

@rr63, the purest tones are from tuning forks, but wood flutes (which suppress high overtones) are pretty sinusoidal. Distortion, through devices, is usually inharmonic, depending on how it's made. But distortion on a just tuned guitar (say) has the sum and difference frequencies line up with the tuning, so it turns into an immense power chord. Check out Jon Catler for examples.

Don't you dare rob me! Or rub me! Well, you can rub a little bit. J/k get ur mind outta the gutter!!!!!
