Hello beautiful wonderful listeners!

I didn't have any particular ideas for today's show before I got to the studio, but I really liked what it morphed into. Aaron had a request that I play the "Science and Sea" CDs before he left, so that really helped me start of a good set after the DeadMau5 fiasco at the end of his set.

I decided to try quite a bit more layering today, starting right off with the first few albums. I also experimented with using the same album to layer throughout (The New York Pro Musica madrigal vinyl) to create a bit of continuity, so if you hear strange classical music in the backdrop of ANYTHING, it's that. I've also been wanting to play the William S. Burroughs "Naked Lunch" excerpt CD from the Spoken Word section of the library, so I set aside a good 30-minute chunk for that, and layered it with wolves and Koji Asano music. But anyway, here's the list.

Uppers:
  1.  Naked Lunch layering segment: Like I said, I really enjoyed being able to play that, and that was a nice find to get the wolf sound effects, because I think it added a lot more to the meaning of the text.
  2.  Playing the madrigal vinyl backwards with Winnie the Pooh: I had a lot of fun doing that layering can make kids' stories/albums way scarier
  3. The Budos Band stuff: I have nothing specific about this, I just really liked their stuff.
  4. The Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver vinyl: I accidentally played that as a 45 instead of a 35, so it played QUITE a bit faster. Although I didn't mean to, I think I liked it a lot more. 
Downers:
  1. The layering underneath Winnie the Pooh: I think I could have done a better job balancing the sound between the two vinyls, and I think I could have also picked a better-suited vinyl for that purpose.
  2. Not layering the Akiyama song: I loved the Tetuzi Akiyama song, but I think that could have been a GREAT opportunity for layering that I sort of missed out on. It was SO sparse that it almost made me uncomfortable, but at the time I was also cuing a few other things, so I was distracted.
  3. The Gary Wilson song: Not exactly what I thought it would be. I meant to have a chill but positive feeling going out of the set, and it sort of took a turn with that. 
Once again, I really hope you enjoyed the show, and stay tuned for more!
