It’s the Great Podcast Releasathon 2012!(tm) this week at Theatre Intangible, a glorious celebration with a new podcast each day! Actually, I made that up. I’m just way behind on my release schedule, I had several old episodes ready to go, and I thought a fancy name would make it appear as if it were intentional.

We kicked off the festivities yesterday with Catharsirator from the WIDB era.

Today’s release is podcast 86: A Wild Snore, featuring Gordon Roque on melodica and vocals; Melody Holt on vocals and musical saw; Cody Bottoms on vocals; myself on musical saw; Anderson Cook on guitar and chaos pad; Randy Hunt on double bass; and Lawrence Crow on keyboards, Theremin, and Supercollider / Puredata programming. I did the live mixing, editing, and mastering. A Wild Snore was the 18th episode of the WRVU era of Theatre Intangible, recorded August 17th, 2008. It’s still one of my favorites.

Stay tuned for another podcast tomorrow!

I’m very pleased to present podcast 81: Ghosts in the Hollow, starring THOMAS HELTON on double bass, STEVEN DUNNING on violin, RANDY HUNT on double bass, CRAIG SCHENKER on saxophone, and TOMMY STANGROOM on percussion.

I recorded the episode live to 2 track at the Gallery F closing reception on February 26th, 2012. Billed as Theatre Intangible Live, the performance was downright spine-tingling. Thomas was at Gallery F on tour, promoting his new video I, a collaboration with video artist, Jonathan Jindra. We were very lucky to have him participate in the improv!

Thomas Helton is a composer and experimental jazz double bassist from Houston, Texas. He plays like a man possessed, lost in communication with some invisible entity, blind to everything but his instrument and the music. Thomas appeared on one of my favorite T.I. podcasts to date, Podcast 9 –  Crow Helton Rauh Schenker.

There were several other great performances at the Gallery F closing show, and, as usual, I recorded all I could. I’ll post them soon and link to them here. (Watch this space.)

If you like the show, tell a friend or leave us feedback on iTunes. Here’s Ghosts in the Hollow. Thanks for listening!

“That’s when I knew that I had the supernatural anointment of one of the otherlee conduits of miraculous divine healing. So now. . . reconstruct the eardrum! Polka! Listen to the polka!” – Dave Cloud – 4th Annual Halloween Extravaganza

Join punk music legend Dave Cloud and a ragtag group of disparate instrumentalist for the most bizarre episode to date. Dave recounts the haunting tale of the evil 22 year old succubus who tempted him during his beach-front honeymoon. Is it scary? Perhaps not. Will it drive you insane? Most likely. Starring Rhendi Greenwell, Josh Gumiela, Mike Hiegemann, Randy Hunt, Pimpdaddysupreme, and the inimitable Dave Cloud! Featuring the screams of Mara Bissel and Clara Fisher. Be warned: This episode is explicit and potentially offensive to . . . well . . . everyone, especially if you’re one of Dave’s ex-wives.

In the words of Dave Cloud, “DIE REAL GOOD!”

Here’s episode 68, Space Waves, the second of three Theatre Intangible presentations, performed live at Gallery F on August 27th, 2011. The performances all sought to bridge the gap between science and art. You can hear the first wave, Brainwaves, on podcast 67. The third, Art Waves, will be on the podcast next week.

For Space Waves, a three-piece jazz ensemble inspired by Don Cherry’s world fusion period meditates on the planets. This theme was entirely conceived and composed by the participants: Jamison Sevits on trumpet/flugelhorn, Randy Hunt on upright bass, and Matt Aurand on percussion.

Enjoy.
