    is self-promotion. I hadn't realized that Gregory Taylor's new CD has now been released (or maybe I just missed the announcement?):
    Highly recommended!

      Yep - must snarf myself a copy.
      radiaL sends me crosseyed after a while, but people make some amazing music with it.

      It's on the front page of our site and was announced in a mass mailing to several thousand folks along with UpMix on Friday, so...
      Oh yeah, we missed the mass telepathic broadcast. I'll be sure to raise hell at the next staff meeting. Thanks for the prod ;-)

      Is there a way to listen to, at least, one whole title ? this kind of music doesn't fit for 30 sec shots (anyway, which does ?). If you're affraid to be downloaded, take a look at this perfect light flash player i use myself : http://www.estvideo.com/dew/index/2005/02/16/370-player-flas h-mp3-leger-comme-une-plume It's french (yeah !) so it's in french but a google on "DewPlayer" will do the trick. Creative Commons license too. Easy to integrate, fast, handy, discrete...
      best

      ps: btw, Gregory, i thought you were playing free jazz music ;-)

      I shall strive to throw off the confluence of my southern birthright [don't put on airs] and my midwestern socialization [don't think you're anything special] especially for this occasion.
      There are several short excerpts from VJ on the c74 webpage for the disc. Like all the other releases, they are short MP3s. The actual performance is a continuous single-take live set, so I suppose you could take the MP3s, import them into buffers, and write a patch that performed spectral interpolations between them over long periods of time. :-)

      mais oui, although after a bruising bar fight with one of the Marsalis boys, I have promised to refer to it as free improv, and to avoid the term "music." The recording on Voiceband Jilt occurred within hours of a Kraakgeluiden performance with Jorrit Dykstra, Andrew Neumann, and Stephie Buttrich that you might have enjoyed.
      Thanks for your interest. Brad Garton, who started this whole embarrassing exchange off in the first place, has - unaccountably - spent quite a lot of time using other recordings of mine as source material for his own recent works. I have no idea why, but refuse to argue with jaw-droppin' heart-stoppin' hip=hoppin' good fortune. You can find them, and things about them here:
      T.S. Eliot dedicated "The Wasteland" to Ezra Pound with the epigram "il miglior fabbro" [the better workman]. Brad makes me sound really good, probably better than I sound normally.
      Let's talk about something else now, okay?
