Variations on a public-domain sample of 12 String Guitar Playing

This was kind of accidental VCV patch in combination with a twelve string guitar piece on archive.org. I’d been experimenting with variations on the Quad Drum Destroyer, combined with the Confusing Simpler from NYSTHI, and this just hit a nerve. There is something about filtered delays that is addictive.   That and the original sample just […]

November 2018 Mixtape

Derek Piotr and I were discussing mixtapes, so I decided to bodge one together.  This reflects what I’ve been listening to over the past couple of months more or less. This isn’t a DJ Mix; it’s like a good old “John Cusack in High Fidelity” mixtape.  I overlapped tracks without regard for beatmatching, and applied […]

Gabes DJ Set 2015-03-19

I got the chance to play the regular Mixology night at Gabe’s in Iowa City, and for the past few weeks I’ve been collecting tracks I wanted to play and fiddling around with a DJ setup for them in Live. I had two impulses — play current and current-ish music that I like, and to […]

Live @ I Hear IC 2015-02-20

http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-2015-02-20-Live.mp3 http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-2015-02-20-Live.mp3 The idea of I Hear IC is to gather people from Iowa City to present brief performances in a local coffee house. Peformances were in the range of 10-20 minutes. Other performers on this night included Jazz singers, an improvisation from two Iranian musicians and a small ensemble improvising a new soundtrack for […]

VOLCA JAMMIN

Sometimes you try something and it’s accidentally kinda compelling. The setup was Volca Beats Volca Keys Jupiter 6 Meeblip Anode Eventide UltraVerb on one send Audiodamage Dubstation16 on the second send. This is straight up tracky. It’s live mixing/tweaking. I actually added effects and the anode while recording. There’s minimal EQ-ing on the Volca Keys […]

KRUI Noise Radio 2014-05-03

This is the last Noise Radio show of the Spring 2014 Semester. After a break, Vince Woolums will be back for the summer, and we aren’t sure what’s up for the fall. As Vince & Mike & I get busy, we’re having trouble finding other guests to help cover Saturday nights. It’s a tough time […]

KRUI Noise Radio Show 2013-10-26

This week’s mix focuses mostly on 3 new releases: Autechre’s L-system, Estroe’s Comfort And Closure, and FourTet’s Beautiful Rewind. Autechre is perhaps the most resolutely inacessible group to ever acquire a dedicated fan base; their music challenges listeners to find a new way to hear music. My thought while I was playing on the radio […]

KRUI Noise Radio 2013-07-13 DJ Mix

The 2 month gap since my last radio show means that a lot of new music has come out so this set has some ‘new’ stuff that’s a bit older than usual, and advance promos played after their release. No matter. The two releases that are of particular note to the summer’s mood are http://www.bordercommunity.com/?p=5240 […]

2013-05-11 KRUI Noise Radio

The only thing the end of a college term means to me now is that the grad students in my office are scarce for a week or two, and we get a break on Noise Radio. But I tried to end the term on a high note, or at least a loud one. I’ve noticed […]

Live @ PS One 2013-03-19

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 Sellergren. It ultimately bears only the most tenuous relationship to the original music which is […]

KRUI DJ Set – 2012/10/20

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 different directions: John Tejada’s melodic Techno (which echoes/gives homage to The Black Dog’s late-90s sound), […]

Chaircrusher Live @ Gabe’s October 11th 2012

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 trying to get there. But hey, Thursday night at Gabe’s — hard to draw a […]

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 […]

KRUI DJ Set 2011-11-05

I didn’t buy any new music in the past couple weeks, but Liz McClean Knight (aka Quantazelle) sent me e-mail about the new free compilation she’s releasing on her label SubVariant, Frequencity, and the day before David Powers sent me the promo for the new EP on Klectik, Back To The Islands by Synox. So […]

KRUI DJ Set 2011-10-08

I put out a call for unreleased/promo/advance music to include in this radio show back in September. The response wasn’t overwhelming but I got a few nice tracks from friends and acquaintances, and a rare opportunity to pick and choose among the unreleased music of my friends from Pittsburgh – Shawn Rudiman and Pittsburgh Track […]

Chaircrusher Live @ Blue Moose 08-04-2011

I played last night opening for Ex-Action Model, Binary Marketing Show, and Dream Thieves. I’d have to say that this may have been the strongest bill I’ve ever played on. Totally rad. But anyway here’s my set.
