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.
