a short little mix of hip hop instrumentals plus surprises

Check out the musica de casa bueno at www.milesmaedamixes.com.

Miles is legendary for his deep, weird, house music sounds from Chicago and beyond the galaxy. I've put up some mixes by him in the past and still rave about his Floating at 7am mix from the mid 1990s. I used to hear him live all the time when I lived in Chicago, and a few years ago I had the pleasure of learning yoga when he instructed a group of us at a Fitworks prior to his DJ gig at the now defunct Wish Nightclub in downtown Cleveland. He is a class act through and through!

flying high: sora sol

An interview with Heather Iriye by Derek Carney

When Heather 'Sora Sol' Iriye told her friends and family that she was running away to join the circus, they probably thought she was simply clowning around.

Iriye, 25, recently returned to Cleveland from a season-long, 26-city tour throughout the United Kingdom with Festival Circus. She was also fortunate enough to be cast in the Zippos Circus show, where Iriye's principle feats include acrobatic maneuvers on large draperies of silk, the duo trapeze, and the web rope.

It was two years ago in December when Iriye was sitting at her office job desk contemplating the negative affects of working her nine to five job. “This surely wasn't what I was supposed to be doing with the rest of my life,” said Iriye. “So I went online and typed in ‘circus school’ into Google. The rest is history.”

After submitting an inquiry to the circus school, she received her application. She filled out the form and sent it back. After news arrived of her acceptance, she took a plane to New York City for an audition. “Being an international school, there were applications coming in from all over the world. 15 of us were selected for the program,” said Iriye.

There are no training wheels at circus school. The students begin performing in a professional circus starting on the first day. They train from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. on days when the circus isn’t either moving from one city to another or setting up and pulling down the tent. Iriye and some of her classmates chose to practice their routines until midnight or later. “We would perform anywhere from 10 to 15 shows per weekend. It was intense. I received training in everything from hand-balancing to vaulting to aerial arts of all kinds to [working with] hula hoops,” said Iriye.

Iriye met plenty of interesting and unique people from all over the world while learning the circus arts. Two of Iriye’s instructors, Zorig and Zaya, are from Mongolia. Zorig worked with the males on their aerials and hand-balancing, while Zaya taught mostly contortion, but jumped in on hand-balancing occasionally.

“There was a lovely British woman, Steph, who taught me hula hoops while I kicked and screamed all the way. She also instructed me in silks,” said Iriye. “We had a dance teacher who was the picturesque 1940s pin-up girl and as bubbly as they come.”

She and her roommate collaborated on a duo trapeze act, eventually becoming the "Zimbi Sisters." Another close friend was Carola, a gorgeous Deaf Norwegian contortionist. “Some people just make you sick because they're so amazing,” said Iriya. “She's one of those people and I have so much love for her. There was also an angry Canadian juggler, two clown Scottsmen who drank much and were infectious in their laughter, and a flamboyant glittery male British aerialist.”

Iriye said she had a love-hate relationship with England. She disliked the constant absence of sunshine and the rain that seemed to never stop, but she loved the people and their accents. Iriye said, “I was horridly introduced to haggis and black pudding.”

Iriye was introduced to professional dancing after relocating from Arizona to Cleveland in 2005 for an internship with the United Church of Christ. A quarter-way through the internship, she decided to abandon organized religion completely to pursue her own spiritual quest.

It was during that transitional period that Iriye discovered the Sub-atomic Frequency Modulation Overdose Performance Ensemble: a collective of traditional, modern, and break-dancers, aerialists, stilt-walkers, graffiti artists, visual artists, and musicians. The ensemble performed at Ingenuity Festival, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and Cleveland Public Theater among others. SAFMOD is currently on hiatus following the tragic loss of dancer and creative director Zoe Shultz to cancer in 2006.

“First and foremost, Zoe taught me worlds on what it means to love unconditionally. The way she related to me and to those around her often brought me to tears of gratitude for her friendship,” said Iriye. “Performing with SAMFOD was an invaluable experience for me. It opened my eyes to making art as a collective and creating outside of the box. It made me grow on so many levels: spiritually, physically, professionally.”

When asked which discipline she prefers- aerial work or dance, Heather said, “When I'm in the air, I feel graceful and untouchable. That being said, I will always be a dancer at heart.” She added, “Optimally, I would like to make a positive impact on humanity using performing arts, mainly circus, as a means of widely spreading peace, love, and respect. Beyond that, the sky's the limit.”

a twist in the fabric of space

quote for today


"Mathematics is a language of precision; it keeps undefined terms at a minimum; it makes common agreement about the meaning of certain terms (definitions) and the rules of its system (axioms). The discipline strives for both simplicity and for a well-defined domain where the rules operate without contradiction or ambiguity." - J. Allen Howard

loop assassins - just visiting [2006] (2009 re-visit)

Photobucket
This is a live 95% vinyl mix. I played records for the first 20 or so minutes, then Boompsie spun the next 20 or so minutes, and then what follows is both of us playing simultaneously on four turntables plus a cd player all running through multiple effects processors of which we modified their parameters in real-time. I recently re-edited a new ending by adding a recording of Boompsie telling a story and then I mixed in a Loop Assassins demo track that I recently created from bits and pieces of loops and sounds that Sherry and I came up with while experimenting with some analog gear the last time we worked on music together before she moved to Wisconsin.

billy collins' introduction to poetry

Introduction to Poetry by Billy Collins

I ask them to take a poem
and hold it up to the light
like a color slide

or press an ear against its hive.

I say drop a mouse into a poem
and watch him probe his way out,

or walk inside the poem's room
and feel the walls for a light switch.

I want them to waterski
across the surface of a poem
waving at the author's name on the shore.

But all they want to do
is tie the poem to a chair with rope
and torture a confession out of it.

They begin beating it with a hose
to find out what it really means.

twitter and haikus

So I obviously joined the Twitter after reading a Rolling Stone article about some famous musicians who Twitter, and specifically found Yoko Ono's tweet inspiring:

“Every single person is incredible. Like an oasis. You can either irrigate the oasis or get very bad water, it’s just up to you.”

and

“I think it's better to dance than to march through life.”

Vinnie G.'s twitters were the first friend tweets that I read and they were in haiku form. Add to that the fact that Dionne has been writing haiku movie reviews on her blog... so being not-so-original, I decided to try my hand at the haiku form and thus I have found a channel for these through my Twitter account. Enjoy.

Now I am connecting with haiku afficianados and writers on Twitter. Found this one tonight and it is amazing:

A giant firefly:
that way, this way, that way, this
and it passes by.

dwreck - dammit!

Putting this one back up for a limited time. This is a digital mix I did with Sony's Acid, piecing tracks together and making my own mash-ups and my own dub versions of songs. This one ranges from house to fidget house to techno to jackin' house and a tiny bit o' disco (and I threw in a Lauryn Hill mash-up that I did) to deep techy minimal-ish house to some breaks at the end.

70+ downloads so far. Thanks for listening!

barry fell - swan soul beatdown



Thanks to Andre and Leidra for playing this in the car on the way to our hiking trip at Whipp's Ledges and the Icebox Cave. This mix shows a mastery of slowed down Detroit soul and house grooves layered and looped to create funky textures and moods perfect for driving a car or cutting a rug. It's official: Barry Fell has out-Moodyman-ed Mr. Kenny Dixon, Jr., in my opinion. The only other DJ that I know of that can mix house so sublimely at such a slowed down tempo is Miles Maeda when he's in one of his "Hovering at 7 a.m." moods. Brilliant.

notacon 6 | wyndam hotel | 4.16.09 - 4.19.09

The Wyndam Hotel in downtown Cleveland will host Notacon 6, the sixth annual computer “hacker” convention exploring technology and modern philosophy that runs from Thursday, April 16 through Sunday, April 19, 2009.

Paul Schneider, one of the co-creators and organizers of the convention, said in an email, “I think there are a couple good reasons students should attend Notacon. The first involves the central tenet of the event itself, that of discovery.” Schneider continued that the event, “is a great opportunity to network with new people with diverse backgrounds from our own city and from around the world.”

This year’s Notacon, one of the few remaining “hacker” conventions held in the Midwest, offers more than 40 presentations, contests, games, and giveaways throughout the weekend. The goal of the convention is not only to educate and enlighten attendees, but also to entertain them.

Schneider said in an email, “It's about us as a whole, not about one person lecturing and 200 listening. It's about everyone having conversations about the things that they are passionate about and wanting to share that passion with others.” Past presentations have included "DIY Green Energy," "Notageek: Technology and Everyone Else," "8 Dirty Secrets of the Security Industry," "The Great Failure of Wikipedia,” and "Your Moment of Audio Zen: A History of Podcasts."

What sets this convention apart from similar events is the addition of creative content that applies technology to graphics, art, and music, and the emphasis on social interaction. “A lot of people might think, ‘That really doesn't sound like it's for me,’ and I think they ought to check it out before discounting it so fast,” Schneider added.

Notacon offers two tiers of prepaid registration as well as a discounted prepaid rate for groups. The cost is $75 for basic registration while the $125 premier package includes a swag bag and a personalized badge. The price for tickets at the door increases to $100 each. During the evening of Thursday, April 16, 2009 a free preview event will be open to the public. For more information, visit http://www.notacon.org/

may the force be crispy, and topped with butter and stuff

I'm still in disbelief that I failed to find a box with one of these inside of it on Christmas morning. Damn, Santa, don't you remember how many of my childhood afternoons were spent creating ultra-violent soap operas using my bookcase as a giant space station for my Star Wars action figures? One of these days I hope to watch the computer animated Clone Wars series on Cartoon Network from the beginning. I keep catching bits and pieces of it, but it's a serial thing so I'll have to start from the beginning and hope to Yoda that it's not as bad as The Phantom Menace.

*laughter*

strictly for the househeads

Attention househeads. Go directly to the Strictly Rhythm website and join their mailing list. Once you join, you'll get exclusive access to their DJ mixes which currently include heavy hitters like Todd Terry, Osunlade, Quentin Harris, and 'Little' Louis Vega among others. Not a bad deal for a free membership! Thank me later. You can also purchase much if not all of the Strictly Rhythm back catalog (in digital download format or on vinyl(!!!)), as well as other merchandise. Strictly Rhythm if you were sleeping through the 1990's is the legendary power"house" and arguably the most important and most influential house music label in the U.S. if not the world. If anyone's interested in shopping for an early graduation/birthday gift for me (I mean, c'mon, May is really not that far away!) the grey t-shirt in the merchandise section would be the perfect gift idea. I'd probably never take it off.

Anyhow, you can't go wrong with a label boasting tracks from house heavy hitters such as Masters at Work, Roy Davis, Jr., Kings of Tomorrow, Maurice Joshua, George Morel, Armand Van Helden, Mood 2 Swing, Osunlade, DJ Sneak, DJ Pierre, Barbara Tucker, Crystal Waters, King Britt, Josh Wink, Roger Sanchez, Joey Negro, David Morales, and Todd Terry to name a few.

If you need a refresher of the Strictly Rhythm sound:

Aly-us - Follow Me
Harddrive - Deep Inside
Harddrive - Just Believe (Tony Humphries mix)
Essence - Moments in House
The Untouchables - Dance to the Rhythm
Sun, Sun, Sun - Curious

this is the jam

I cannot get this out of heavy rotation, no matter what I try to do. I just keep going back to it. Roy Ayers and big phat breakbeats are a match made in heaven.
Methinks everybody must love Roy and sunshine and big phatty breakbeats, and so everybody must listen to this effin' brilliant track:

THC - Sunshine [Awesome Records, 1993]

and here's the original goodness:
Roy Ayers - Everybody Loves the Sunshine

audio deja vu

Tonight's action-packed Winter premiere of the FX network's plastic surgeon drama Nip/Tuck was great for many reasons, one being the hot tunes included in the episode. They featured The O'Jays' "Back Stabbers" as well as Mark Ronson's cover of The Smiths' "Stop Me If You Think You Heard This One Before." So, I was looking into cover versions of songs online and found a site dedicated to archiving a database of cover songs. Check out Secondhand Songs if you're interested in who covered a certain song or who did the original version.
