Found Sound iowa city Live recordings

Iowa City September Night Noises Free Download.

About a week ago I liked the sounds I was hearing on the back porch of our hose, so I set my Tascam DR-05 out on the porch to capture a few minutes of sound. Then I forgot about it. The next morning I went out and the recorder had turn itself off, but it […]

Past Shock – Chaircrusher Live 1996

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 sometime musician. But I’ll deal with that stuff later. One of the other things is […]

2011-04-02 KRUI DJ Set

Special Afternoon edition during the Mision Creek Festival. This was in the basement of Public Space one, standing at a cramped counter with crap monitors. I didn’t have a lot of new tracks to drop, so I let each one ride longer than I usually do in the mix, and I think they’re worth it […]

2011-02-12 KRUI DJ Set

This set was driven by a trip to Dave’s Records in Chicago, where I crouched on the floor going through the used $1 Dance Records. I also did what I usually do, which is look through a section of floor to ceiling shelves of records in my office I haven’t visited lately.

[audio:http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-2010-12-04-KRUI.mp3|titles=2010-12-05-KRUI DJ Set|artists=Chaircrusher] http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-2010-12-04-KRUI.mp3 I usually have a track listing, but I left it at the studio last night, so you’re going to have to be surprised. Various 80s dance pop obscurities and hits, some house and a lot of Detroit techno, ending up with the Afx remix of 808 State’s “Flow Coma”

What I write when I’m not posting here.

I didn’t post very often in the past month on this blog. As it happens, most of my writerly energies were being devoted to the Little Village Magazine blog and magazine. I wrote a couple of lengthy (for me) posts there that some who read this blog might find interesting: I rant about recent changes […]

They tweeted a link to a Mediafire download link, but I hate Mediafire, so […]

My mini-live-set @ Dawn’s 2010-04-03

As Greg Davis pointed out to me last night, making music with just sine tones isn’t an original idea. But for me, the simple setup of 4 sine wave synths in Ableton Live, set up such that I could jam out live felt really good. In the context of live music in 2010 I’d have […]
