Episode no.4 of the Doris Day Or Die Podcast, an experimental, free improvisation, noise and new music podcast.
This episode I go solo without The Owlman. I called in sick, stayed home with a spiritual illness more or less and decided to put this together for myself, for you, for the benefit of all sentient beings, everywhere. Isn't that gracious of me? Wire To The Dead from Barcelona, Sherman from Hong Kong, Hive from Portland, Hans Von Bartles from Santa Rosa, devilsclub from Salem and John Cage from beyond time and space.
1. "Glass Eye" - Wire To The Dead
2. "Track One" - Sherman
3. "III" - Hive
4. "Take Your Daughter To Work Day" - Hans Von Bartles
5. "YellowSnowFlake" - devilsclub

Episode no.3 of the Doris Day Or Die Podcast, an experimental, free improvisation, noise and new music podcast, interspersed with random conversations with The Owlman.
Music on no.3 begins with Berlin's Slow Slow Loris, whom I played on the same bill with at the LoFi earlier this year, a really great noisy/atmospheric duo. Sokai Stilhed from Seattle is next with a really glitchy track with mangled-up pop-ish vocals. A recording I made of Pink Void live at Junction in West Seattle for a couple years ago follows. Junction was a monthly noise/experimental night I curated at Twilight Gallery for a spell. For a time I curated a similar monthly program at The Living Ro-Om Culture and PF/UC was a one-off live collaboration between PRISONFOOD and Uneasy Chairs that I had recorded. A beautiful electric guitar studio recording by Iowa's Bob Bucko Jr follows and lastly a track by Seattle's excellent Rainbow Wolves.
1. "One Candle, Clear Eyes" - Slow Slow Loris
2. "Dried Air" - Sokai Stilhed
3. "Live at Junction" - Pink Void
4. "Live at Occult Sciences no.5" - PF/UC
5. "Equal But Opposite Suffering" - Bob Bucko Jr.
6. "Aurora" - Rainbow Wolves

Episode no.2 of the Doris Day Or Die Podcast, an experimental, free improvisation, noise and new music podcast, this one being a bit more on the noisy side of things.
A live performance by Seattle's no-wave-noise-rockers Clearinghouse recorded (not by me) at The Black Lodge starts the music line up off, then an intense live set by Bacillus live at Pent Up Fest at the Josephine, into a set recorded also at the Josephine of Interracial Sex. Recorded in West Seattle at Junction, an off-the-hook noise set by Japan's Edo Destruction follows, then a live set from FHTAGN and a studio track from Pulling Out The Light.
More conversations with The Owlman as well.
1. "Frank O' Hara" - Clearinghouse
2. "Live at Pent Up Fest" - Bacillus
3. "Live at Josephine" - Interracial Sex
4. "Live at Junction 2" - Edo Destruction
5. "Live at Occult Sciences" - FHTAGN
6. "Appendix of After Thoughts:" - Pulling Out The Light

Episode no.1 of the Doris Day Or Die Podcast, in which I play various experimental, free improvisation, noise and new musics by people I'm acquainted with and/or live recordings I've made. Over time the music content will shift and expand according to my interests.
Interspersed with music and sound are casual conversations with my coworker Robert. Topics include but are not limited to: his pet guinea pig Squeaky, various libraries he visits regularly and so much more. Conversations will evolve eventually just as the music will.
Music in order of appearance in this episode:
3. "Live At Teatro de la Psychomachia" - Ryosuke Kiyasu
6. "Song For Esther" - V. Vale

Blake played saxophone and I played electric guitar with no effects, just guitar straight into amp.
I used my '77 Les Paul Custom, first time in a long, long time.
One my favorite sets of ours to date.

Thanks to Jason Lazer for the video of the recent set at Teatro de la Psychomachia of Uneasy Chairs with Vanessa Skantze and Adam Levitt. This was definitely one of my favorite sets I've done having wanted to collaborate with Vanessa and Adam for a long time. I especially had wanted to collaborate with a dancer, specifically Butoh and Vanessa is incredible.
