New stuff, including several skimmed off the top of the promo avalanch in my inbox. Some older stuff — the Microlife tracks were resurrected by someone from the ashes of MP3.com. In honor of the date, I brought Nancy Reagan … Continue reading
I had Ableton Live’s audio get interrupted several times last night. The culprit was a nonsensical ‘warning’ to reattach my ‘file history drive.’ I had never set up File History, and certainly not set it up to write to an … Continue reading
More specifically Techno & House than usual. Featuring new Shawn Rudiman on Detroit Techno Mlitia, new Cephax Acid Crew album Cro Magnox, Kommon+Appleblim, Trus’ Me, and things found trawling through my ITunes collection… http://cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-20130330-KRUINoiseRadio.mp3 Kommon+Appleblim Silencio Anika In The City … Continue reading
So today I got this interesting message from Soundcloud: Hi chaircrusher, Our automatic content protection system has detected that your sound “Rubber Duckie (Wub Machine Remix)” may contain the following copyright content: “Get Some Fruit (Wubstep Dubstep Remix)” by Anand … Continue reading
It was cold and snowy and there wasn’t much in the way of an audience, but I got to try out some new stuff. Starting about 14:00 I have a section that samples (well, granulates) Milk & Eggs aka Jordan … Continue reading
So it’s been a bit since I did a radio show, so I have a backlog of new stuff to work through. New Burial, Autechre, My Bloody Valentine, Alex Under, Ron Trent, Terrace, and of course Chaircrusher…. http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher2013-03-02-KRUI-NoiseRadio.mp3 My Bloody … Continue reading
This grew out of a discussion on Facebook about bread making. Kylie Buddin requested a recipe. Bread really seems daunting to many people who are otherwise confident cooks. My first advice to people is to lower their standards: Your lumpy, … Continue reading
OK, new MBV first reactions. The overall sound hasn’t changed much if at all. If I had made a record as epochal and evocative as Loveless, I guess I’d have problems finishing a follow-up. There are kids in their 20s … Continue reading
The last show of the semester! Found some stuff downloadable on Soundcloud (Ekko, Delany Duvall), some recent-ish Terrence Dixon/Juju&Jordash/Sigha.

Rather than my usual grab bag of tracks, this mix focuses on just a few releases: Deepchord’s Sommer Mala’s Mala In Cuba Deadbeat’s Eight John Tejada’s The Predicting Machine Dom Dumoulin’s Gone EP DFRNT’s Fading … which takes things several … Continue reading
I had a fine time, though it would have been great if more people showed up — I mean I’m used to playing to mostly empty rooms, but we had guys in from out of town who hit a deer … Continue reading
Haven’t done a radio show since the spring, and had rather a backlog of interesting stuff that has been filtering in. Mr. DE from Detroit Ad– the man from ElectroFunk — Has a new album Sol+Mind which has an eclectic … Continue reading
My friend David Talento was trying to organize his studio and found some cassettes I’d sent him in the 1990s. The real find was what may be the last remaining copy of tracks by Jason Welch, local rave promoter and … Continue reading
This is being played tonight (June 1 2012) on WNUR Radio’s long running Street Beat radio show in Chicago. Thanks to Max for the hookup. Music-wise it’s my usual thrashing all over the map under the guise of eclecticism. Some … Continue reading
I previously had posted about a couple of sample sets I made by banging on stuff in the basement hallway, (Hallway 1 and Hallway 2) but today I went through the steps to package them as an Ableton Live ALP … Continue reading
A performance of Guitar Trio by Rhys Chatham is always a stunning, overwhelming, transcendent thing to experience. The composition itself is a schematic set of instructions for 3 or more guitarists, a process that Chatham directs from the stage as … Continue reading
