If You Got Ringing Ears, Too

2012.03.28: James and special guest Janice Kerfoot attempted to create The Big Drone with two circa 1972 Fisher Price Happy Apple chimes apiece and some radio re-insertion delay tricks. We now have carapple tunnel syndrome for our efforts.

Two live improvisations were performed, and the following musical selections were played:

  • “Notre Dame Cathedral Bells” field recording, by Molasses.
  • “Bell Set #1” by Michael Nyman

If You Got Ringing Ears

2012.01.11 : The first hour, James played live bells and chimes (and a lamp) with live stream re-insertion delay tricks. The second hour, same tricks, but using the vinyl LP from disc 2 of the Syntonic Research series “environments: new concepts in stereo sound”, the “Tintinnabulation” side, changing speeds.

Also played several tracks in the intro, interim and outro by Charlemagne Palestine from the “Music From Big Ears” CD wherein he played carillon.
