On the Tuesday evening of September 25th, 2018, we had done a promotion for Noise Fest on KDVS in Davis located on the campus of UC Davis. KDVS has had a long loving relationship with the noise and experimental music scene here. In fact my first introduction to noise was through KDVS back when I was tuning in for the grindcore and metal late at night I would sometimes come across the experimental and weird stuff. Lots of NoiseFest guys have DJ’d at KDVS so each year we try to do some promotion on the station for NoiseFest.
I recorded the whole thing and divided up the tracks which will be posted here.
First here is the whole hour with the interviews, dialogue, and additional nonsense.
Artist: Austin Rich’s Mini Mutations
Song Title: Saturday Morning Commercials
Austin Rich had phoned in his set from Oregon
Artist: The Stolen Elk
Song Title: You’ll Never Know
The song title may or may not actually be true. When Matt, the Stolen Elk, was asked what the song name was he merely responded, “You’ll never know.” Which could either comically be the song title, or just his response to leave it as a mystery. Or both.
Song Title: The Smitese Fire Drill
During performance Bill, Smite, had left his staging area and did a quick fire drill run around the whole station. This didn’t translate well over radio, but it was comical nonetheless.
Song Title: Dry Ice In The Carpathian Forest
Daniel, Collapsist, had brought his modular synth which was housed in an IKEA shelf which surprisingly works well as a case for eurorack modular synth with the Tip Top racks.
Song Title: Inversion Aversion
This was my performance. When asked for a song title I thought I was making a clever word play. I guess I was. Reading it now just sound stupid.
Artist: All performers
Song Title: Be Careful Or We All Might Noise Again
We had some time to spare so since we were all still hooked up into the board we all started doing noise. The DJ of the night, Robin Redbeast, had started playing a few records on top of all this making it really nutty and cacophonous. One of the studio engineers had made a quick appearance because he was concerned for the levels. Hehe.
