NAT ROE: REVERSE CHARTSWEEP – 1980–1971
Part 4 of a chartsweep of all 848 #1 hits on Billboard's easy listening charts in reverse chronological order from 2010 to 1961.  A chartsweep is a cut-up of a large (and usually chronologically organized) library of pop songs. A history professor, Hugo Keesing, made today's definitive chartsweep using all #1 hits from 1950-1991, also available with a great interview on Ubuweb. But Keesing's own chartsweep was a "dusting off" of the late '60s radio show The History of Rock N Roll. Casey Kasem's American Top 40 show often used chartsweep montages. The technique is ubiquitous among late nite TV ads for comps with titles like "Super Soul Hits of the 70s". Another apparently anonymous example of audio chartsweep covering 1970-1972 takes a less structured, more musical approach. DJ Polymorphic turned chartsweep into a karaoke nightmare with his Song Of Songs. I expand chartsweep into a general form of fast-paced collage improvisation every week on WFMU. Adult Contemporary Redux was originally made available for WFMU's 2011 fundraising marathon and was composed in late 2010.

Hugo Keesing's undertaking was Herculean - he had to purchase all of the 45s for every song and edit them down on analog tape. With decent quality streaming audio available for all top-40 songs on Grooveshark and Youtube (there were only two songs on the entire charts that are not available for download on the internet) and efficient editing software, I was able to make the longest chartsweep ever in under 200 hours. All the same, the task of making chartsweeps is mundane and beneath human dignity. So after finishing Adult Contemporary Redux, I've been working on automating the compilation process with Pure Data and creating interactive visual scores of cut-up audio libraries. We are faced with a glut of aesthetic information every day. Constantly experiencing a multitude of automatically produced chartsweeps could be a very powerful tool for life. My thanks go out to the people at Billboard, Nielsen and Arbitron for compiling airplay and sales data - you are the Ptolemys of the pop-stars and the Atlases of consumerism.

RADIO BOREDCAST PRESENTS… DUB SELECTION
Throughout the month, Radio Boredcast is making selections of themed music that fit the As Slow As Possible subject, either in an obvious or more ethereal way.  Dub music, in the original definition (coming from reggae music) encapsulates slowness and spaciousness.  

Often the reverb and echo effects are very psychedelic, or there are layers of sound effects that turn it into a journey through sound… a soundscape, a very active experience for the imagination…

TRANSMUTEO: EPISODE 2 - CONSTRUCTING YOUR NEW LIGHTBODY - FOR RADIO BOREDCAST 
Transmuteo is the audiovisual, multimedia project of Jonathan Dean, along with various collaborators, visual and musical. The project encompasses sound, live performance, video, visual art, gallery installation and experimental social networking. The sound of Transmuteo is inspired by new age music, especially the pioneering 1970s and 80s work of artists such as Iasos, Bearns & Dexter, Steve Halpern and Malcolm Cecil. New age beliefs - Dolphin Consciousness, The Melchizedek Method, crystal healing, Angelic Reiki - provide a conceptual basis for the project. The music utilizes samples, environmental sounds, found and prepared cassettes, effects pedals, synths and analog drone to create dense, textural, psychedelic music that revels in the shining artifice of the New Age.

For Radio Boredcast, Transmuteo has created four special one-hour broadcasts that collect meditative sounds from various musicians, along with exclusive pieces created by Transmuteo especially for the Boredcast. Along the way, you will hear guided meditations, channeled messages, interview excerpts, descriptions of advanced spiritual technologies, as well as the inspirational words of your host, one of the Atlantean Starseeds of Transmuteo.

CHARLIE: BUSY DOING NOTHING – SLOW NIGHTMARE – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST 
Other people's bad trips and bad dreams combine with disturbing loops to hypnotize you into a state of suspended foreboding. 

Charlie Lewis has been compiling music since he got a tape recorder at age eight, but it was not until his involvement with WFMU that he was able to foist his musical conglomerations on the public at large. He has been doing just that, both at that beacon of freeform radio and at other stations, and also for fashion shows and such, since 1996. He has played in various combos (http://bit.ly/tiWSoW), and written lots of music (http://bit.ly/tZEy2g), but has yet to outdo this work (http://bit.ly/vqiV0f).  Charlie worked in broadcast audio and in the music business for many years, but now does the more honest work of selling patent medicine. http://wfmu.org/playlists/CL

DO OR DIY WITH PEOPLE LIKE US: 1234 – PART 2 – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST 
1234 is a show all about counting in music, sound art, poetry and lunacy.

DO or DIY is a freeform sound art radio show broadcast weekly by Vicki Bennett (People Like Us) on WFMU. The philosophy behind the show is simple. That within the realms of avant-garde and experimental sound art the goalposts defining "accessible" and "inaccessible" are constantly moving. As the radar rises and dips, fragments and shards of underground creations unearth, and popular culture and artist resonate, shifting shapes accordingly with one another in reflections of changing spotlights. Each show consists of collages made of sound works from the 20th and 21st century, often layered and looped many times over, resulting in an album type effect on each show. http://www.wfmu.org/peoplelikeus

MR ROTORVATOR: ROTORVATION TAPE – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST 
Mr Rotorvator (Adrian Phillips) studied horticulture in the early 90's and subsequently spent many hours breaking up old ground with the aforementioned machine in preparation for laying out new gardens. On rainy days he would find himself indoors, watching exercise videos or twiddling with his turntables and wondering, would a similar process work on his old record collection?

Experimenting with various discs, he found that jamming the stylus at various points would produce interesting new rhythms. "I loved my old vinyl but was a bit bored with it too, what if I could chop up all the best bits from lots of different records and play them all at the same time, it's bound to sound great!" He was, of course, proved wrong but along the way some original sounds have been produced.

GIGANTESOUND – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST 
GiganteSound is an experimental label specializing in sound collage and the darker side of sampling and electronic music from the San Francisco Bay Area. Started in 2005 by Jared Blum and Dominic Cramp, the two have released music as far reaching as the basement -musique concrete and early synthesis inspired Vulcanus 68, to the deconstructed dubbed -out dankness of Borful Tang, Lord Tang and Qulfus, to the abstract, thrift store- pop rock sample collage stylings of Blanketship, all the way back down to the droney vinyl exploitations of Beaks Plinth...The use of slowed and manipulated sounds has been a foundation to the music of GiganteSound. This program will feature the slower side of GiganteSound catalog as well as an exclusive 35 minute set by Beaks Plinth (Jared Blum) created solely from sounds recorded off of the Library Of Congress' Talking Book Record and Tape players which allowed listeners to play back media at slower speeds than commercial players of the day... http://gigantesound.com

DANIELA CASCELLA: 31 DAYS, SLOW AND STILL

31 DAYS READING LE PONT MIRABEAU BY GUILLAUME APOLLINAIRE AT 8.30AM – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
Le pont Mirabeau is a poem by Guillaume Apollinaire, published in his 1913 collection Alcools. In response to the theme and the structure of As Slow As Possible/Radio Boredcast, I chose to record myself reading Le pont Mirabeau at 8.30 in the morning for 31 days, anticipating and mirroring the duration of the broadcast in a different place and at a different time.

I chose this poem because of its slow flowing against its slowing into stillness – the flow of water, time and words in the stanzas against the circularity of time in the refrain. The adjective ‘slow’ appears still in the third stanza, the same one that contains ‘love’, ‘hope’, ‘violent’. The adjective ‘still’ appears slow in the refrain, as an impossibility. In the original French poem, ‘slow’ rhymes with ‘violent’ and ‘still I stay’ with ‘hours’.

The lack of punctuation throughout the poem calls not only for a flow of words, but also for different rhythms and meanings arising out of each reading. The readings always took place in my office, sometimes as dedicated recordings, sometimes while I was preparing to go out, sometimes while I was reading the paper or checking the news online. I learned the poem by heart, so sometimes the recordings mirror my small hesitations and gaps in recalling the verses. An old phonograph recording of Apollinaire reading the poem (from the Archives de Parole, Collection Phonothèque Nationale - Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris) supported some of the readings.

Daniela Cascella is a writer and curator based in London since 2009. Her research is focused on sound and on the way it seeps into other formats, most of all text. Her most recent projects explore and employ fictional tropes in writing criticism and descriptions of sound in fiction. She has recently finished writing her third book, En abÎme: a narrative across listening, reading and writing-as-landscape, as part of her research in the MFA Art Writing at Goldsmiths College that she completed in 2011. http://www.danielacascella.com

MATMOS: MUSIQUE CONCRETE HOUR 3 – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
In response to the invitation to contribute sound that somehow speaks to the stated theme of slow audio, we have decided to focus upon musique concrete and its aftermath. The original practitioners of the musique concrete tradition - which was a global phenomenon, and not simply a continental one as it often supposed- had to work carefully, methodically, and above all, slowly. In order to capture, manipulate, process and assemble their work, decisions had to be made and enacted, plans drawn up, trials conducted and errors removed.  Lots of painstaking, hands on work stands behind each edit, each cut, each splice, each pass through a filter or into a process. The music soaks up and stores time, and it plays with time as a basic material. This music is both intensive and extensive in its demands upon its creators and its listeners. That said, we have not narrowly emphasized only the pioneers, but have sought to draw some connections between the first generation and subsequent audio, which seems to us to draw inspiration from this methodology. Slow down and enjoy.

Matmos is M.C. Schmidt and Drew Daniel, aided and abetted by many others. In their recordings and live performances over the last nine years, Matmos have used the sounds of: amplified crayfish nerve tissue, the pages of bibles turning, a bowed five string banjo, slowed down whistles and kisses, water hitting copper plates, the runout groove of a vinyl record, a $5.00 electric guitar, liposuction surgery, cameras and VCRs, chin implant surgery, contact microphones on human hair, violins, rat cages, tanks of helium, violas, human skulls, cellos, peck horns, tubas, cards shuffling, field recordings of conversations in hot tubs, frequency response tests for defective hearing aids, a steel guitar recorded in a sewer, electrical interference generated by laser eye surgery, whoopee cushions and balloons, latex fetish clothing, rhinestones on a dinner plate, Polish trains, insects, ukelele, aspirin tablets hitting a drum kit from across the room, dogs barking, people reading aloud, life support systems and inflatable blankets, records chosen by the roll of dice, an acupuncture point detector conducting electrical current through human skin, rock salt crunching underfoot, solid gold coins spinning on bars of solid silver, the sound of a frozen stream thawing in the sun, a five gallon bucket of oatmeal. http://brainwashed.com/matmos/bio/

DAVE SOLDIER: TIMELESS RADIO PROJECT – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
Timeless Music, explains the two physical dimensions of music and approaches to manipulate them, with musical examples.

For recorded music, the dimensions are air pressure amplitude and time: and for composed music the dimensions are frequency and time. We explore some approaches for how one can play with these dimensions, for example using fractal patterns with partial dimensions, so that issues like tempo become undefined, and the length of music become ambiguous.

The show includes explanations / illustrations of how to make deliberate fractal patterns in music, Fourier transform music and even a straightfoward explanation of white noise. (These are really not hard, and I'd like to think I explain them with minimal jargon.) Exploring this direction, I have prepared some math music:

The variations on Chopin's Minute Waltz uses integrals, derivatives, averages, and more.

My third string quartet, "The Essential" consists of mathematical variations on the second movement of Arnold Schoenberg's Second Quartet, and can be heard and the score downloaded from the Scores page. It includes a derivative movement, an integral (very short), a fractal movement, and a Fourier transform.

Olivia Porphyria, a fractal on Haydn's name, from Organum can also be heard and the score downloaded from the Scores page at: www.davesoldier.com

Here are scores for two other fractal pieces for trombone and two guitars, Fractal on the Name of Haydn (http://davesoldier.com/scores/FractalHaydn4.30.Frets.pdf) and Fractal on the Name of Bach (http://davesoldier.com/scores/FractalBach4.30.pdf). For clarity, though, I advise starting with the Fractal Variation in "The Essential Quartet" (see score page) which is easier to follow and is essentially equivalent to a Koch snowflake pattern.

Why haven't integrals and derivatives been used to compose? It's not hard. Here's a mini-lesson on making a derivative or integral version of a musical theme:

Use a C major scale, CDEFGABC

Assigning a number to each note, here starting at 0=C, the scale is

0,2,4,5,7,9,11,12

For a first derivative, subtract each note from the preceding note,

(0),2,2,1,2,2,2,1

Which using the original scale tones would be

C,D,D,Db,D,D,D,Db: voila'! the first derivative

To integrate the derivative add each number to the previous,

(0),2,4,5,7,9,11,12: which returns the original scale

Integrate the original scale, and you'll see why integrals of the music rapidly go beyond the range of hearing! Examples are in the Essential Quartet and the Chopin Variations below, both with very short integral movements.

Dave Soldier leads a double life as a musician and a neuroscientist. As a composer, he developed a repertoire for groups including the Thai Elephant Orchestra, 14 elephants for whom he built giant instruments and who released 3 CDs, and projects with children, including rural Guatemala (Yol Ku: Mayan Mountain Music) and New York's East Harlem (Da HipHop Raskalz). His Soldier String Quartet helped usher the use of hiphop, R&B, and punk rock into classical music in the 1980s, and his long-running Memphis/New York Delta punk band, the Kropotkins, is a cult favorite. His composed The People's Choice Music: the most wanted and unwanted songs, following poll results of likes and dislikes of the American population, with artists Komar & Melamid; song cycle/oratorios in collaborations with Kurt Vonnegut, and many chamber and classical works. As a performer and arranger, he worked with John Cale, Bo Diddley, Van Dyke Parks, David Byrne, and many jazz and avant garde acts, appearing on over 100 albums and films on violin, guitar, or arranger.  http://davesoldier.com/experimental.html

CODPASTE WITH PEOPLE LIKE US & ERGO PHIZMIZ - COLLAGE
When does it stop being completely isolated from the rest of the universe and step into the world of collage, adding another patch to the huge quilt of sounds that have gone before? People Like Us "start at the very beginning" and try to find out.  Features sounds from Noah Creshevsky, DJ Earlybird, Brion Gysin and Kid Koala, amongst many others.

http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/25942

"Codpaste" was a weekly podcast series in which the two artists People Like Us and Ergo Phizmiz attempted to compose collage music from the very beginning, in a "work in progress" style, attempting to open up the creative process. The theory is that it is rare to see compositions made from the outset, and usually the audience are only invited in once the piece is finished, done and dusted. It could be that new light may be shed on the creation of art if the curtains are opened and the audience are given access to the raw, the imperfect and the wrong as well as the polished and the finished.
