ROGC: “Under a Dim Crescent Moon” – part 2
live-mixed webcast of field recordings: January 22nd, 2006

PLAYLIST & INFO PAGE HERE!

this is # 2 of a 2-show series (part 1 is located HERE)

For most of 2003, I lived in the northwestern-most region of China…
officially known as:Xinjiang : Uyghur Autonomous Region
and sometimes referred to by some as China’s “other, lesser known Tibet” for situational parallels.
I’d recieved a generous grant to document the folk music (as opposed to the classical muqam music) of the Turkic muslim cultures traditionally native to the region… focusing mainly on the largest group: the Uyghurs , but also including examples of Kazakh and Kyrgyz songs.

For this show, I live-mixed many of those field recordings, which while mostly consist of music, also include ambiences, pop & traditional music on cassettes & cd’s I picked up…and recordings of shortwave radio.
The field recorded music you hear was, with only a few exceptions, strictly performed by common folk (farmers, carpenters, (incl. mystics and beggars)) demonstrating something that’s very much a cultural part of everyday life. With east China’s ever accellerating blitzkrieg development of it’s west though, these cultural traditions are going up in smoke fast.

The recordings were done with head-worn binaural microphones – in yurts, homes, under grape trellises, in mud brick courtyards, orchards and in the streets of oasis towns in areas surrounding the expansive Taklamakan desert

Several of these recordings – in purer, more carefully curated form – will be released later this year on the fantastic Sublime Frequencies label. (!!!)

ROGC: The Great Rain Drain
LIVE-mixed webcast: January 8th, 2006

PLAYLIST & INFO PAGE HERE!

So the sun has returned to us here in Oakistan… for now. But why let the waters just come and go without a ceremonial seasonal “sayonara”?

Unlike other stations that obsess on day to day weather forecasting, we here at s&S only need to do this once for the entire year.
So, I hope you tuned in to ride the weather front – down, out and away – with a LIVE-mixed wet sound journey with the Royal Oakland Gramophone Company.

Ub Radio #8

This was a special pre-recorded show hosted by dAS of the usual Ub Radio crew. In this yummy little 1/1/’06 gifty-pie, the man thrust a diamond tipped, mp3-encoded shovel deep into the Ub Radio time capsule – to see what long lost treasures would come a-bubblin up. The history of UbRadio is aeons older than appearances on s&S, you see. These nomadic noise makers and hosts have been bringing you delicious warm, noise milk to amuse and challenge since ….um the mid freakin 80′s? (is that right, dAS?)

sounds and performances by:

Freshly Wrapped Candies,
Illusion of Safety,
Monks of Doom,
Crash Worship,
Monte Cazazza,
Negativland,
Randy Grief,
If, Bwana,
Suckdog,
Minoy,
The Haters,
