Manipulated sounds.
Gamelan from all sides–the ruckus of playing different albums featuring gamelan on all three turntables and all three CD players. When you talk about gamelan, you’re often talking about the set of multifaceted instruments that are meant to be pounded with mallets. As it happens, each gamelan contains multiple instruments that are built and tuned with relation to one another within that particular gamelan; thus, no one component of a particular gamelan should be mixed and matched with another gamelan. Although WCBN prides itself on its community of knowledgeable DJs who respect the music and musicians that they set on the turntables…no one ever accused the station of adhering to convention. As it is at WCBN, the trend-bucking is also in my nature. Yes; I did it. I mixed and matched gamelen (= plural of gamelan!)–and not just by trading a gambang here, or a kempyang there, mind you–I mixed (I suppose by definition, I most definitely did not match) entire gamelen. hmm. It got crazy up in there.

…things get to sound even more experimental-y toward the end. Is your radio broken?

OH and FUNDRAISER is coming up so soon very soon. It’s almost time to clean out your bank account to show your support of our modest student-run community radio station. Many associated events are coming up, so you can donate and get something in return instantaneously. For example: Bacon Sale/Dance Party/Fundraiser Kickoff at the Elks Lodge on Friday, March 11, at 10pm. Why don’t I just put a little clip about that right here:

(about 1.5 minutes)

OK OK (= the most frequently used word in the world), now listen to the show:
