White Beetle (12/4/08)

In the Summer of 2007 I pick up a hitchhiker while on my way across the state of Texas. He was Mexican and I was driving in a Jeep that I had rented for a short trip to California. He couldn’t speak much English, but when he did he used his words to tell me how great it is to sleep with black women. I dropped him off at a gas station, it was about 3am, still dark, and the store hadn’t open yet.

That’s A Waste (11/13/08)

There are exactly seven ways to drive from Fargo to Nebraska!

Four ways to eat an apple

12 songs about Nebraskians eating apples

and 3 different ways to listen to each one of those songs

so all together there are (4!*4!*12*3 )  * 85(to account for error) +
5571 (this is so I don’t exclude the Hebrew year starting in 2010) people living in Nebraska …. that’s 1,768,331 total! Pretty neat how that works out isn’t it?

The Electronica Jungle on KNDS. For me I think it is interesting to look at how this show is effected by the way I have treated the week. For example if I get a lot of work done and I am busy doing things, the shows are always fantastic, but if I am lazy all week then my output on the show seems to dwindle, or my enthusiasm does at least. This week I got a bunch of stuff done, please enjoy.

And Put It Out So I Can Find it If I Look for it Later (4/3/08)

Lots of horns at the start, then the show some how turned into an audio investigation of Andy Warhol, stuff influenced by him, Valerie who shot him, Velvet Underground who was a part of his Exploding Plastic Inevitable, A bit of a Documentary about his films, A great quote about his love of “walkamans” (Sony Walkmans)… good stuff take a listen.

A List of Prior DJ names:

Djing

For historical reasons I feel it necessary to document previous DJ names that I have assumed:

DJ Axiom of Choice: a short lived alias

DJ Tree Branch: another very short lived name, but some people still refer to me as such.

DJ Dition and his Band of Amazons: Did a mix for Fanatic Promotions, but I can’t seem to find it on the web anywehre, perhaps I will up load it sometime.

DJ Sohcahtoa: Played out in the Fargo/Moorhead area under this name a few times, and did a mix for Spectre Promotions under this alias.

Twig The Tree: I can’t even remember much of about this name but it was inspired by DJ Tree Branch, not sure which came first?

DJ  Mister P aka Panda Bear aka Anti-Bling: I used these names while hosting an underground hip-hop show on KNDS from 2005 to 2006

Camel: I was the camel, or wait, maybe I was the llama, I think I was both. Alias was used on the Camel and Llama Hump Day Show with Mat.

Paul Sobczak: I have also DJ under my given name a few times as well

I think there are a few more, mabye one or two that I have missed, if you remember any of them fell free to remind me.

The first hour of the show did not get recorded due to a windows user error, and it is quite unfortunate because the first hour was fantastic. My friend Trevor Hirst, was listening to the show and got inspired and created a short liner for the show that was played about 20 minutes into the recording. You can listen to his liner here if he keeps it up.

Have a good day and enjoy the audio

Another show in the books. I pulled from quite a few different sources to put this together. I am enjoying the dynamic of how these Jungle sessions are going. I start out by searching for some different material to present, but while the show is on the air thing everything is put together on the fly. I add in things that I would not have originally thought to, leave things out as well, the final product is some type of blind performance. I say blind because I have no audience feedback, at least not directly (phone calls, I try to answer them all but some times I am in the middle of mixing things, sorry). I hope you are enjoying these as much as I am.

Audio below, take a listen and let me know what you think.

While Walls Viewed Through Gray Eyes (1/17/08)

There is a good amount of different stuff going on in this episode, I was pulling from my recently re-acquired vinyl collection, an old synth I made, CDs, Field recordings I made in Europe, and a high dose of found sounds on the internet. I feel good about the show in general, I wanted to produce something along these lines for some time now and it's a relief to have finished it.

I hope you enjoy it. 

Grey/Gray: Grey became the established British spelling in the 20th century, but a there is minor variant (Gray) in American English according to dictionaries. Also Canadians tend to prefer grey. -Wikipedia

I just got some pictures back from Trevor Hirst, from back when I DJed his Gallery Closing Show back in March 2007. The show went really well, I played lots of atmospheric stuff, (rain, machines, animals, ect…) incidental music if you will. I also brought my PAIA Theremax Theremin along with and people really enjoyed playing around with that.

The Telephone Synth got its venue debut at the show as well.
