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.

Avatar 11:18am fred:

I usually don't post before the show, but I went to the PhD defense of a friend this week (thesis title "At the margins of noise. A study of noise music and DIY") and I wanted to share the long summary without disrupting the flow of the show:
Although noise music has only recently become an object of interest for academic research, it still represents a form of art emblematic of the underground music scene. It is characterized by a radical approach which implies using noise as work material, playing with form and development, and hybridizing its stylistic territories. This approach is reflected by playing practices in which the emphasis is no longer laid on the supremacy of instruments and composition, but rather on playful and makeshift experimentation. Musical quality is not assessed on the artist’s technical skills anymore, while the listening conditions call for a specific implication of both body and environment. The practices of production, organization, and diffusion of music, borrowing from the éthos of DIY, place autonomy, versatility, and amateurism at the heart of this art world. This PhD research, based on musical analyses, press archives, field surveys, topographies, and an ethnographic study of the Parisian scene, proposes an interdisciplinary approach marked by musicology, aesthetics, and social sciences. Its aim is to question the way noise music and its specific social practices challenge the manner in which we conventionally apprehend what we consider as music, and even “good” music, the image of the musician, the artistic intermediaries or the stage, in light of what seems to constitute a new contemporary paradigm of experimentation.

Sounds super difficult!!! I'm guessing all these things were spoken like avant-garde poem reading and your friend would knock things off of tables from time to time to add some noises?

@Mayuko: not at all. There were a bunch of noise scene regulars in attendance, which just jelled with what she said about the focus on community in that scene

@fred nice! the noise scene does seem to often have a strong sense of community, and those little communities all over the world are often well-connected with each other internationally. I always liked that about the noise/experimental music.

Swan Boats always remind me of a (possibly apocryphal) story George Harrison and Eric Clapton are sitting in the record companies office hashing out the contractually obligated song Badge when Ringo Starr walks in and starts talking about swan boats. Harrison & Clapton look at each other and say: that is going in this song.
  12:52pm ike:

Once or twice, I’ve compared the dubbed version of a Ghibli film to the subtitled version, and found surprisingly I preferred the dubbed version. Normally I prefer subtitles. I don’t know any Japanese obviously, but the dubs of those movies always have great voices and the translations are smoother in English (though maybe not as accurate? IDK).

The only phrase I remember from my disastrous attempt to learn German is "ich bin ein papagei", which isn't going to be useful, ever
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm listener james from westwood:

I wish I'd kept up my Spanish. It was really coming along in senior year of high school; I could follow lots of my Cuban American friends' parents' rapid-fire conversational lingo, and a lot of the Spanish channels in the NYC area. Then I placed highly enough on the Advanced Placement exam to skip language in college, and over the high school-to-college summer my skills diminished to sub-Sesame Street level.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Dropof Goldensun:

  12:59pm ike:

Decades ago, my Spanish classes started with a bizarre-o irregular verb, “gustar” — terrible idea! So then everybody tried to use “me” w/all the verbs instead of “yo”. That guy had no business teaching Spanish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Webhamster Henry:

The Spanish I have is mostly by osmosis. I once had to admonish a bus seat mate once not to be using his cell phone with whatever I could put together out of the words that might have worked!

Avatar 1:10pm Mayuko:

@paul b Why did Ringo start talking about swan boats? Although I can clearly picture him in a swan boat solo and part of me thinks of course he would talk about swan boats.

@fred Unless something kafkaesque thing happens to you. And if it happens to happen in Germany.
Avatar 1:14pm Sem:

@fred: of course I would have to go Babelfish and enter "ich bin ein papagei"
Frankly, i think you'd be well-served to drop that phrase into your everyday encounters, especially with those who understand German

I took German lessons for about a month and wound up w/ a Bavarian accent but no understanding whatever of the language.
Avatar 1:15pm Mayuko:

@james I'd call it a huge success for myself when I get to Sub-Sesame Street level from this all-manzanas level. It's a bummer that it takes so long to learn a language, and yet you can forget it in a very short time!

Avatar 1:22pm fred:

It was in a comic book supposed to help students learn German. Thing is the teacher in my first year fell ill a month in and wasn't replaced, then the second year teacher thought we were fourth year students and would only speak German. Seriously, that German disaster is why I had to take a science education, I was just too bad in German to go into humanities, as I wished

Yes it is fun! I was pretty good with Italian but if you don't use it, you lose it! I had no one to speak to. I'm Italian but my mom didn't speak it. My dad did but he died during my second year of college and the desire to practice it more didn't come until I was a bit older.

I love languages but I often freeze up while speaking English much less trying Russian or Spanish or whatever. Chinese in Taiwan was the worst. I tried to learn a few phrases and could barely even do that. They were especially hard to remember for some reason.

@Dropof Yes, actually, it's easy to forget that there are many things that one wouldn't understand anyway even if it was explained in their mother tongue.

Right, but Thai is also tonal and I didn’t have as much trouble learning a few phrases there, or remembering them, but maybe their tones aren’t as heavily implemented. Or maybe they just have so many tourists that they’re more used to visitors massacring their language. That’s probably it.
