The pickled gizmo podcast. Session 1
Time is high for the first testtransmission of a new kind of brainentrainment mediatechnology. A search for the limits in radioprogramming.
This first show is filled with homemade experimental frequencies mixed with contemporary sonic scrapmetal found floating around on various videosites online.
The show opens up with a collage of buddhist chanting samples from the great samplepack by djgriffin on the freesound project.
We then hear large outtakes of Lewis Lancaster's lecture on "Buddhism in the age of modern technology."
Also stirred in to the mix is fragments of audio from David Lynch early attempt in filmmaking: Eareserhead. together with a piece of a phoneinterwiev made by the guys over at Resonance fm.
And krautrock expert Gerhard Augustin tells us about his youth living in Berlin during the 60's and 70's.
And all along the journey freeform electronic music is taking shape in improvised manners to ensure the right atmosphere.
The result is an alternative mediastream were the message is encoded by the listeners imagination. A media mashup without cause and reason. Like the birds we sing because we can, not because we have to.
Or as John Cage would say: "We have nothing to say, and we are saying it."
