recontextualizing pop music
baby's on fire
(from eno's _here_comes_the_warm_jets_)
i used to hear it as grim british mysogyny ("edgy" humor)
but with various immigrant crises and blm in my mind- i now hear it in a different (and far more disturbing, emotionally callus manner (esp with spanish named characters in a verse of demeaning stereotypes))
love the sounds, human artists ... well a mixed bag
zappa (+ mothers)
imperfect in many ways
"we're only in it for the money"
remains a fave
+ (art) music collage[s]
+ (witty) social commentary
+ doo wop style-ations
+ "non-musical" elements (conversation excerpts, "shorks", ...) integrated into musical textures
+ ((somewhat) gratuitous) kafka mention in liner notes
case can be made for it being
among peaks/nadirs of hi/lo art mash-ups
(also captures something about media saturated living)
played a BLM action
by a traffic circle
mostly whites holding signs
while their neighbors drove by
support is good
but i hate fucking cars
(outside of their utility
(and i come from detroit!))
mostly drummers & low brass (7)
one each: tpt, tbn, cl (very quiet)
so strong rhythmic focus ...
nonetheless, nice to see musician friends (after months of quarantine)
school of honk
"black bird special"
watching live stream concert
(too many zooz, moon hooch)
music great (so far)
kinda reminds me of sporting events without crowds in a way ...
like rehearsal in a way; since waves of crowd enthusiasm (or disdain) are absent- just musicians trying to make that magic happen ...
(almost need to bring more than usual since crowd "crutch unavailable)
not so easy to «mach show» in pandemic (musical or sporting)
even the craziest shit
(where some fans go, "ok, but lanquidity" (and i get it, it's a freakin mess (but beyond the notes ("music is a spiritual language" (direct to creator)))))
i am fortunate to have heard all the sun ra music i have
(including one live (post stroke) performance (supplemented by innumerable recordings))
@luka I'm really enjoying
http://kamizdat.bandcamp.com/album/access-frame-equity right now. I appreciate all the work that went into the pieces by the artists and the mastering you did.
words perplex me
