Dodelijk materiaal en kortegolfklanken 
Wednesday, February 11, 2009, 02:31 PM - Music, - NL, Personal, Nederlands
Tijdens mijn vakantie ontving ik een email van vriend Peter. Hij was in een koffiezaak de krant aan het lezen waarin een artikel stond over de heruitgave van 'Anthology of Dutch Electronic Tape Music'. In dat artikel werd een stukje uit deze blog (vertaald) geciteerd.
Hij stuurde deze foto, gemaakt met zijn iphone:



Gelukkig had vriend Theo de krant nog ergens thuis liggen en kon me een scan sturen van het hele artikel. Klik hierboven op het kiekje voor de scan. Of lees de on-line versie op de site van de schrijver Frits van der Waa .

Ik had de officiŽle cd's al gekocht tijdens de presentatie daarvan in het Bimhuis. Zou u ook moeten doen, bij Basta: www.bastamusic.com.

Fashion - Product Perfect CD (2008, UK/US, new wave) 
Sunday, November 23, 2008, 11:38 AM - Music, - UK, - US, English
In an old post I gave up hope to ever get the first fashion lp on cd. To my surprise Luke James, the singer of the band, mailed me a couple of weeks ago that he was releasing this cd.



There are different (single?) versions of Fashion and Bike Boys on the cd.
You can buy it from his MySpace page http://www.myspace.com/fashionlukesky for only $10 + $2,50 p&p.
He lives in California now, the lucky bastard.

1 Product Perfect [3:51]
2 Die in the West [4:13]
3 Red, Green & Gold [4:49]
4 Burning Down [3:33]
5 Big John [2:01]
6 Hanoi Annoys Me [2:56]
7 The Innocent [2:30]

9 Fashion [2:53]
10 Don't Touch Me [2:59]

A rare tracks cd has soon to be followed, as a cd with brand new songs will.

Peter Sjardin - Changes (1982, NL, psychedelic)

Cassette recording of a never released lp for Universe (L54) by Peter Sjardin (Group 1850). 25 Test pressings were made in a white sleeve. The last 7 minutes are missing, they didn't fit onto the compact tape... So there still remains something to long for.
Peter solo on the 'organiser'.



Side one:
1 Changes [8:59]
2 Weather report [10:17]
3 Night of the frogs [3:26]

Side two:

Walter Murch - THX 1138 (1970, US, not electronic) 
Monday, January 21, 2008, 12:45 AM - Music, - US, English
This is *not* the official soundtrack of Lalo Schifrin.

I recorded the sound of this first movie of George Lucas on my tape recorder with a microphone near the tv speaker when it was broadcasted on television, around 1973 I think.
I listened to this beautiful futuristic soundscape again and again. Till my tape recorder broke and was replaced by a cassette deck.

Some years ago THX 1138 came out on dvd, and it had a special feature: the soundtrack without the actors voices. A pity was, that also the voices of the electrogod and robocops were removed, which were essential for the atmosphere to me.
So I made my own mix where I brought back the voices of the cops and godmachine. I divided this mix more or less into the chapters of the movie.



Another extra on the dvd were comments from Walter Murch you could jump to during the film. I extracted these explanations, removed the ehh's and ahh's, added some sound references and included them too.

Jerry Goldsmith - Logan's Run (1976, US, electronic) 
Tuesday, January 1, 2008, 02:50 PM - Music, - US, English
Not many shares last weeks.
The work it takes is not in balance with the fun it gives anymore. So don't expect a lot of new stuff the coming months.

This post consists of audio rips from the electronic parts of the movie Logan's Run. A lot of the score contains synthesizer sounds. I converted the ac3 to mp3 and made up the titles at my own discretion.
According to the Internet Movie Database, Jerry Goldsmith is the composer. He used the ARP 2500 and did also the music for The Twilight Zone, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek, Chinatown and The Boys from Brazil.



1 Opening Titels [2:26]
2 Ride to Arcade [0:19]
3 Carrousel / Runner [5:29]
4 Circuit [0:31]
5 Cubs [0:29]
6 Debriefing [7:08]
7 Ride to Cathedral Plaza [1:22]
8 Love Shop [1:58]
9 Surrogation [6:36]
