Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Scraps:

I hope I’m still awake for this series! I very much like Roger Roger, and I’m missing several in my library for Chappell Music despite actively looking. (“Actively looking” meaning not breaking my very limited bank.) Cheers.
Avatar 6:20pm Flash Strap:

Hope to have you with us, Scraps! Sad to say I don't have any of these records in actual LP form, just shared rips from hither and yon. Anyway, if you nod off, there's always archives as you know.

Crackin' up to see Impedimenta next to your name... haha, I love that Asterix but how long has it been since I used my brain to remember the name Impedimenta?

Okay, just about to get started! Time for some MOOD MUSIC

Avatar 7:14pm geezerette:

Was this music for industrial shows?
Avatar 7:14pm Flash Strap:

Hi LD!

That was certainly one of the main types of clients for this sort of library music, G

Thanks,Evan. :D
Tiny flecks of Mancini.

Dalila features some nice early-ish (?) use of Ondes Martenot : en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar 7:18pm Flash Strap:

not a lot of dates provided in the Chappell library, unfortunately
Avatar 7:19pm Flash Strap:

god this is a great track imo
Avatar 7:20pm Little Danny:

You are a brave man for wading into all of these LPs, Flash! Is the above photo composite the entirety of the Chappell Mood Music run?
Avatar 7:21pm geezerette:

It's audio pantone.
Avatar 7:23pm northguineahills:

@geezerette, that makes so much sense, now!
Avatar 7:23pm Flash Strap:

thanks, LD! It's the majority... there's a few I couldn't find images for. I think it ran in total 26 volumes, but the last two sort of shouldn't count so that's 1-24 with a couple gaps
Avatar 7:24pm Flash Strap:

@G: wow, perfect
Avatar 7:26pm geezerette:

:c)
Avatar 7:26pm Little Danny:

@geez: "audio pantone" is so damn great

Avatar 7:30pm Little Danny:

Around what year was this catalog issued, Evan? Early '60s?
Avatar 7:31pm quinn:

hey, i was just listening to this with my baby. it didn't work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm JtotheK:

i've been listening to the raymond scott LPs with my kiddo, too.
Avatar 7:42pm Flash Strap:

I really wish I had a better sense of the dates, LD. I'd say early-mid 60s through 69 and maybe a couple in the early 70s as well
Avatar 7:43pm Flash Strap:

Hi Quinn! yeah, Soothing Sounds doesn't sooth every baby I don't think
Avatar 7:43pm Flash Strap:

does it work for you, JK?
Avatar 7:45pm Flash Strap:

this is one of the superior whole LPs of the series, esp. in the early installments

@Flash -- well, it doesn't /not/ work, anyway. when we have company over the typewriter track receives ... comments.
Avatar 7:53pm Flash Strap:

@LD: totally agree... RR will do another take on Duke later this set I think
Avatar 7:54pm Flash Strap:

@Quinn and JK: it's a weird project, but sometimes I can really get my mind set to its wavelength

next track, after Mystery Steps, is so good I can't stand it

Hi Melinda!
Avatar 8:04pm Flash Strap:

best of preparation to you, LD!
Avatar 8:09pm hyde:

yay. melinda!
Avatar 8:12pm still b/p:

This is that kind of material/sound that I’m guessing would be nearly impossible to recreate.

Melinda is there a bell in town that sends us here...? Our arrivals in the room are really often closely timed. (I was delayed by viewing Nina Simone doc. Must find who among friends has seen it so doc talk can be flung and floated.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm melinda:

Evan did you catch the Morricone Island interview with Sven Libaek this week?
Avatar 8:14pm Flash Strap:

@Melinda: whaaaaaaaaaaat
Avatar 8:14pm hyde:

@melinda, whoa, the who in the what now? I HAD NO IDEA
Avatar 8:14pm Flash Strap:

no, but I need to!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm melinda:

@b/p haha! I did live in a town that had a loud whistle sound at 8, noon and 5. The Nina Simone doc was great.
Avatar 8:15pm Flash Strap:

really liked that doc, B/P! and I usually don't much like music docs, to be honest
Avatar 8:19pm still b/p:

They can’t cover everything and have to choose arcs and emphases, but I’m ALWAYS left wanting more of certain things in music docs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm melinda:

I heard the Libaek show announced maybe the day before, easy to miss if you weren't listening to certain shows. www.wfmu.org...
Avatar 8:22pm Flash Strap:

how was it? I've heard one other interview with Libaek, it was very matter-of-fact
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm melinda:

I found it interesting, but I don't have any other interviews to compare.
Avatar 8:25pm northguineahills:

I may get out of work before 9. This is what happens when you return to work after a 'vacation' 36 hours before a deadline.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm doctorjazz:

Hi all, quick check in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm melinda:

Some music docs are definitely better than others, but I usually get enough from them to make it worthwhile. I probably set the bar low.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm doctorjazz:

The Nina Simone doc was very depressing...
Avatar 8:33pm Flash Strap:

Hi Doc!
Avatar 8:33pm quinn:

this is like a jazzy version of the Earthbound for SNES soundtrack
Avatar 8:35pm Flash Strap:

that game has great music

man, every track on this LP is killer. crazy effects galore
  8:38pm zonk ludlow:

it's been a pleasure running these down with you, friends!
  9:43pm still b/p:

Escapade was good. Should I have a think on the why and how? Is there such a thing as someone who’ll tell your fortune based on favored music?
Avatar 9:43pm hyde:

this is like the mall music in Dawn of the Dead
  9:44pm slawooy:

Tonight’s show is good for my synapses.
Avatar 9:45pm hyde:

i spent much of this library music show puzzling through things related to my current library job. nope, that's not nerdy
  9:46pm MrFab:

Diggin the sounds tonight.

I wonder if any one else here has had experience with production libraries? My wife's a video editor and part of her job is picking out tunes from the libraries of whatever production company she's working for, and laying them into the video. I've helped her with bits. The prod. library tradition lives on. Stuff doesn't sound like this, tho!
  9:46pm zonk ludlow:

It has all been good Flash. Illuminating. Until next week take care all.
  9:51pm little danny:

Thanks Flash!
