Here’s podcast 78 The Ocean and the Sea starring BREY MCCOY and ANTHONY WILLIAM HERNDON from the Paducah, Kentucky experimental group METRONOME THEREMIN. We recorded this synth-filled noise-fest in August of last year.

This is the first podcast I mastered and edited in a program other than Soundtrack Pro. I finally put to rest my senile Mac G5 and replaced it with a Xubuntu Linux machine. I really wanted to use open source audio editing software.

Unfortunately, nothing in the open source world holds a candle to Soundtrack Pro (not even Ardour, at least for waveform editing). And Alsa was an absolute beast to configure properly. So after a month of pulling my hair out and putting off the next podcast release, I broke down and installed Windows 7 inside Virtualbox and purchased Adobe Audition. I feel dirty. Is it as good as my 5 year old copy of Soundtrack Pro? No. Will it work? That remains to be seen.

Ahem! And now without further tech talk, here’s “The Ocean and the Sea.”

Kandinsky “Several Circles”

Today’s episode Knocking Space saved Theatre Intangible. It was August 2009, and Theatre Intangible just got banned from WRVU radio for the episode Get It On With Dave Cloud. We had no home. Everything was in limbo. I didn’t know what to do. I only knew that we had to keep recording, keep the momentum. So on 8/2/2009, eleven of us piled into my basement, armed with accordions, saxophones, trumpets, tubas, windsticks, harmonicas, toy flutes, real flutes, melodicas, shop vacs, air pianos, and voices; turned on the reel to reel; and kept Theatre Intangible alive.

With no place to broadcast the episode, I released it as a Mediafire download on our now-defunct Myspace page and kept recording new shows. In December of 2009, we premiered the podcast and website TheatreIntangible.com. Knocking Space remained unreleased in podcast form until now.

The episode was original titled On Air Volume 2, named after the first all-wind instrument improv, On Air. (Check it out here.)

Knocking Space features Charlie Rauh, Chris Rauh, Jamison Sevitts, Joe Hudson, Craig Schenker, Pimpdaddysupreme, Dave Maddox, Melody Holt, Gordon Roque, and Anthony William Herndon. I did the live mixing, some editing, and post production. This was the first thing I ever recorded on my Tascam 80-8 ½ reel to reel tape machine. We recorded in four 15-minute increments, mixing live, using two left/right tracks for each section.

Tonight’s podcast is one from the WRVU vaults: Parasites, an ambitious episode starring a whopping eight participants. Four played their instruments and four leeched off of these instruments and manipulated them. Each maker was paired with a manipulator. Acoustic guitarist and clarinet player Charlie Rauh got pirated by laptop-armed Lawrence Crow. Anthony William Herndon played his modified keyboard while John Marshall leached his signal with rack mounted effects. Jamison Sevitts’s trumpet was manipulated by Pete from CIA and his nest of pedals. Brey Mcoy played various wind instruments while Chris Murray hacked in with his sampling pad.  I did the live mixing and mastering. You’ll hear this episode in its glorious full length. I didn’t have time to cut it down because I’ve been busy planning the 1st Annual Circuit Benders Ball and Theatre Intangible Halloweird October.

What’s Halloweird October you ask? For the entire month of October, we’re bringing you five special Halloween podcasts, including a new horror movie soundtrack, the Halloween Extravagana volume 1 from 2008, and the all new Halloween Extravaganza Volume 3. The fun starts next week. To prepare yourself, be sure and check out the previously broadcast Halloween Extravaganza Volume 2 and the Dracula Improv.
