If you are curous why Borges hired a schoolboy who earned himself some pocket money in a book shop, listen to this.
If you want to hear about a language so complex that anything from any language may be translated to, but just a tiny fraction of meaning can be translated to any language, listen to this.
If you are thrilled by thoughtful discussions about how the most trivial questions may result in the most complex answers, listen to this.
And just in case you already are familiar with the great Phillip Adam's quiet and unobstrusive but nonetheless firm interview style, then you already know that you want to listen to this.

A conversation recorded at the Perth Writer's Festival, broadcasted at ABC Australia, Radio National, Late Night Live.

Einige ihrer Bücher habe ich mehrfach gelesen, so daß sie für mich schon alt waren, als sie in der Schule besprochen wurden.
Allerdings hat sie mich ob der schieren Veröffentlichungsmasse zur Kapitulation gebracht. Sie war eine Vielschreiberin, aber eine mit Eigensinn und humanistischer Konsequenz und literarischem Anspruch. Preisträgerin Jugendliteraturpreis1973 (Wir pfeifen aud den Gurkenkönig - dies ist das Buch, das ich selbstständig entdeckt und geliebt habe, dann kam es in der Schule ...), Astrid Lindgren Gedächtnispreis 2003 (zusammen mit dem unvergleichlichen Maurice Sendak ...) und viele mehr.
Aber sie wurde gelesen. Von mir auf jeden Fall. Und ich glaube, in "meiner" Bibliothek auch von anderen.

Danke für die vielen Bücher, eine Wiederentdeckung meinerseits ist überfällig.

Meinerseits genauso. Ich stelle jetzt aber auch bedauerlicherweise fest, dass momentan keine ihrer Bücher in meiner privaten Büchersammlung zu finden sind. Die Frage ist jetzt freilich nur noch welches ihrer Werke ich als erstes im Internetgebrauchtmarkt aufsuchen soll.
  
Ich habe natürlich den Gurkenkönig geplant, und beim Blick auf das Angebot stelle ich fest, daß ich wirklich einiges von ihr gelesen habe. Mal sehen, wird spontan entschieden.
Übrigens, hier ist ein Interview mit ihr.

@Brian Christensen
Gurkenkönig, Dschi-Dschei-Junior, Rosa Riedl Schutzgespenst, Die feuerrote Friederike, Geschichten vom Franz, Ein Mann für Mama, Anatol und die Wurschtelfrau, Das Austauschkind waren meine Kindheits- und Jugendfavoriten. Auch ihre Gedichtbände für Erwachsene im Wiener Dialekt sind sehr lesenwert.

This is not only some really awesome strange music but also a great video, as minimal as the music, showing nothing but the record being played, but in a really interesting way.
I remember seeing a label special event series at Galerie Für Zeitgenössische Kunst Leipzig, which remains one of the most impressive series of concerts / performances I have ever witnessed so far. That was sometime around 2000.

Welcome @NetNut404 to the Hubzillaverse. ;)
In case of questions, ask away. HZ is awesome (I am biased that's just my own humble opinion), but it can be overwhelming.
Just have a good look around.

Mystified is easily the most prolific artist you habe never heard of, with much more released music than Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, or The Legendary Pink Dots, just to name a few artists I know and love but will never ever seriously consider collecting.
Mystified is different, even incomparable. First, Mystified is only one of his several monikers, others being AutoCad, Mr Vapor, Grid Resistor, Model 201 or his real name Thomas Park. Second, his genres are more sonic art than music, with an emphasis on Field Recordings, most often treated. And third, almost all of his releases are available using a free license or even Public Domain. He is an enthusiastic activist for free culture, free in the truest sense of the word.

Mystified was his most famous project, and as such he has been a constantly overwhelming me. He has been releasing much faster than I could digest, especially as many releases warrant deep and repeated listening. As Mystified he was the acknowledged master of drone, omnipresent in the netlabel scene and usually interesting.

Therefore I do recommend you to dive into his euvre. As of now he is archiving his work at archive.org. He is also releasing music at

https://mystified.bandcamp.com


I really like these releases:

Wow.  Discovered Isao Tomita when mentioned inside a review for Wendy Carlos' Digital Moonscapes, which still haven't been able to hear. Always said, her Bach etc interpretations are my kind of aesthetic, the way how I dig Bach, Händel etc.
But Tomita's interpretation of the already awesome The Planets by Gustav Holst is currently blowing me away. This is a truely electronic experience. Where Wendy is a master at translation Tomita has performed a complete transition.
A masterpiece, released in 1976. This should be a classic.
Why have I never heard of this?
And yet another universe to discover.

People,
this Carpole Karaoke with Sir Paul McCartney is freakin' epic phantastic. I love that format, but this one tops 'em all.
Mind you, that guy turned 76 a few days after this show. I just hope I'll be able to enjoy life as much when I'm that age. I'll be poor, I still won't be able to sing but I just hope that won't keep me from being happy and creative, doing things that make me and people around me happy.

Plus I have just yesterday been listening to the working version of When I'm 64, switching back and forth between that several mixes we've got. I do love that song from Sgt. Pepper and was always fascinated by the fact that this was one of the very early songs Paul wrote, when he still was a teenager. I always wondered what it might have sounded like back then. I suppose this might be very near.

Sorry, this blast from the past is German language only.

Moin an euch alle,

in den letzten Tagen bin beim Aufräumen über ein paar alte Radiobeiträge von mir gestolpert, die ich auch als Selbst-Motivation hier einfach mal zweitverwerten möchte. :)

Dieser erste Beitrag aus meinen gut 5 Jahren Community Radio liegt mir besonders am Herzen, es war der erste Beitrag bei dem ich das Gefühl hatte, meinen Stil gefunden zu haben. Wenig selber sagen, Klänge und O-Töne für sich sprechen lassen. Ich bekam viel Kritik, daß man schon genau hinhören muß, um mir zu folgen. Aber es gab auch Stimmen, die genau das mochten. Später habe ich dieses Stilmittel noch verdichtet und Sendungen gebaut die entweder zum aktiven und intensiven Hören einluden oder auch einfach nur als anregender Hintergrund laufen konnten. Genau das würde ich gerne wieder aufleben lassen. Es fehlt mir. Sehr.

Eigentlich war ich nur als Gast bei dieser Performance der legendären Cottbuser Band Sandow. Das Ganze hat mich aber so sehr begeistert, daß ich noch während der Veranstaltung ins Radio gedüst bin, mir Mic und Recorder geholt  und O-Töne gesammelt habe. Damals war das alles noch per Kassette und im zweiten Schritt mit echtem Tonband bei dem Schnitte noch echt destruktiv und ohne Undo-Button waren.
Ich habe bis tief in die Nacht gearbeitet, auf dem Studioboden ein paar Stunden geschlafen, das fertige Band ins Fach gelegt zur Versendung im Stadtmagazin und bin heeme gefahren. Und habe dann am nachmittag als unser kleines Bürgerradio auf Sender ging mit pochendem Herzen das Ohr ans Radio geklebt.
Heute freut es mich, dieses Dokument zu haben. Die durch die Halle schwenkenden Rhythmen und die Lautstärke habe ich zwar nicht gut eingefangen (ich wünsche mir hätte ein Stereo-Mic zur Verfügung gestanden, oder 2 Mono), aber die Ekstase dieses begeisternden Erlebnisses ist mir sofort wieder gegenwärtig. Und ich spühre wieder die Blasen an den Händen, die ich mir sehr schnell zugezogen hatte.

Fun Fact: Das Gespräch mit Endruh Unruh fand in der Toilette statt. das war noch der ruhigste Ort der Halle. :)

Es juckt mich total, wieder aktiv zu werden. Mal sehen.


  
Als großer Neubauten Fan hab ichs mir natürlich gleich angehört :-) :like

Der RadioBeitrag gefällt mir vor allem wirklich im Stil sehr gut. montierte O-Töne und der gesprochene Kommentar der auch in der Tonlage etwas zu sagen hat - sich aber auch zurücknimmt und sich nicht auf alles draufsetzt.

Bitte wieder anfang mit der Produktion von neuen Beiträgen !

Björk. From her first record called "Björk" that she recorded at the age of 11. She refused the offer of a follow-up record, used the money to buy a piano and compose songs on her own.

No, that's how I first "met" her. I still remember vividly. My task was doing the dishes. My mother did not like it, but I used that chance and listened to the radio. An interview with The Sugarcubes was on. The interviewer was all fascinated by Björk, how quiet she spoke in opposition how loid she was on stage. Later I found a live recording tape at a local shop, but did not like it, chaotic and badly recorded, did not get into it. Today I have listened to others and ... still strangely fascinating.
Next step was Debut. Another place, another station, but still this interviewer's fascination with Björk as an interview partner was evident. Don't remember anything more. The album did not click with me at the time, still prefered bands. Nirvana ruled my listening habits, I was an avid collector. Still got the ticket for Berlin 1994. Alice In Chains, Dirt and Jar Of Flies. Did not get house etc at all. I slowly became a fan with Post. To this day one of the most furious album openings of all times.

Attention all Hubzilla-admins, your action is required. Due to the recent news regarding github.com we have changed our git hosting provider to framagit.org. You need to update your git repositories to reflect this change, including your Hubzilla web document root, addon repository etc.

Bye, bye GitHub!
You all probably already noticed that GitHub was recently bought by Microsoft. See here https://blog.github.com/2018-06-04-github-microsoft if you have not.

After a brief orientation period the Hubzilla community decided to move the sourcecode to an independent, freedom-loving GitLab instance at Framasofts https://framagit.org/

To get the latest and greatest Hubzilla code, you need to point your installation to the new sourcecode location. This is pretty simple:

cd into your Hubzilla root directory and execute this command:
git remote set-url origin https://framagit.org/hubzilla/core.git

For the addons: cd into your Hubzilla addons directory (probably extend/addon/hzaddons) and execute this command:
git remote set-url origin https://framagit.org/hubzilla/addons.git

Please do the same for the widget https://framagit.org/hubzilla/widgets.git and theme https://framagit.org/hubzilla/themes.git repos if you already added those from GitHub.

The GitHub repos will not receive any updates anymore but will stay intact for a short transition period.
Issues and bugreports should be reported and discussed at https://framagit.org/hubzilla/core/issues for core and https://framagit.org/hubzilla/addons/issues for addon issues.

Silhouettes, an album by Klaus Schulze on Spotify

Here we go again, another new Klaus Schulze album. But as amazing as it seems, this is the first release with truly new music in a few years, recently we have been treated with quite a few very well and lovingly done re-releases, but he himself kept quiet. Unusual for someone who is infamous for releasing a 50-CD box with unreleased material along with several regular albums per year. Mind you, he is 70 and has been rather ill, so I take this album as a good sign for him personally.
To me it's a strong release. All four pieces. Klaus Schulze, who is known for his long and meandering synth pads has reduced his toolbox even further: this is a very quiet, almost beatless album, slow and very balanced. Very much a typical ambient album (or spacy Kosmische Musik if you really want to dig out those old stereotypes), in fact one of the best from that genre (and KS himself, who has helped to define that genre) I have ever heard. It sounds very balanced, peaceful and in unity with himself. No need to prove anything, just to enjoy the music. Track 2 has got some more sequenced passages, but they are not taking over, are only adding to the peaceful dynamics. Track 3 is adding a beat loop but only for a short while. This could in parts be the most "traditional KS" track of the album. Track 4 is the one that relies most on a quiet beat loop and sequencing, but it's still laid back enough to remain delicate and within the album's mood range despite being the most dynamic of the four.
The track titles also speak for themselves. An essential Klaus Schulze release. Very deep, emotional and beautiful. I also like the cover. A portrait of the artist as a heavy smoker. Very much KS, a very good portrait and I believe a first for him, such an intimate photo portrait on an album.
Oh and as I am a total lover of low frequencies ... there are many. Especially track 3 and 4 can be quite challenging for your listening equipment and might benefit from much less bass boosting than most other releases. Mind you, they are the first ones my otherwise really sturdy AKG 240 were outright unable to cope with my usual EQ setup range. Wow.

Klaus Schulze: Silhouettes
1. Sihouettes
2. Der lange Blick zurück
3. Quae Simplex
4. Chateaux Faits De Vent

A deluxe edition with CD, double vinyl (transparent red vinyl) and art print showing the famous KS portrait from the Mirage album, signed by the artist.
To me a KS autograph would have made me buy that one, but without I thought I'd go with the humble CD version.
Then I found that the flac download at Qobuz is available for €3,96 ... album bought.

The Man-Machine (German: Die Mensch-Maschine) is the seventh studio album by German electronic band Kraftwerk. It was released on 19 May 1978 in Germany by Kling Klang Records and in the United States by Capitol Records. The album saw the group incorporate more danceable rhythms and less minimalistic arrangements. It includes the singles "The Model...

I have just learned that Matt Marks has died. I did not know him well, neither personally nor artistically, but he has earned my awe by adapting The Beatles' tape musique concrete piece "Revolution No. 9" for live orchestra and performing it with The Alarm Will Sound. What a name for an orchestra.
First, anyone who even kind of likes this strange  piece of structured sound can count on my sympathies. But Beatles fanatic that he was, Matt not only took on the unlikeliest track for a cover version, but also the one track that is the most unplayable and unimaginable for a life setting. He did it anyway and succeeded with grandesse.
I am sad that any further exploration of his own compositions and further work will now be in retrospect.
This is by far my favourite Beatles cover version of all time.  
Thanks, Matt. Thanks.

Hubzilla 3.4 Released!
For Hubzilla 3.4 we focused on overall usability improvements. A new permission role (social - federation) has been introduced. This is the most permissive role we provide and it aligns well with the capabilities of the protocols we federate with (diaspora, activitypub, ostatus).

An autosave functionality for posts and comments has been implemented. Posts and comments are now autosaved to the browsers local storage (no, we don't send your unfinished work to the server). If you accidentally reload your window or navigate somewhere else, you will not loose your work anymore. When you return back to your unsent post or comment, the text will be waiting there for you as if nothing happened. This functionality is enabled by default and can be disabled in additional features > post composition features settings if desired.

The technical skill level setting has been merged and streamlined with the additional features page. This makes it easier to adjust the skill level to a comfortable value.

Another important change to mention here is that the author menu has been moved from the item dropdown menu (bottom-right of posts and comments) to the author photo. All author related functions are now accessible directly by clicking the author photo.

Last but not least some of the redbasic theme schemas have been renamed to better reflect their purpose in the naming. The simple_* schemas are unmaintained at the moment and were therefore marked deprecated. If nobody from the community steps up and maintains them, they will be removed with the next release. Due to the renaming of the schemas you will have to set your schema again after your hub has been updated. This does not affect you if you are using the default schema (Focus).

Other notable changes:

  • Introduced trending tags for the public stream app
  • Implemented visible star status for starred posts
  • Fix issue where we were forced to log back in after leaving a delegated channel
  • Implemented last commented expiration setting for admins
  • Implement OAuth2/OpenIDConnect server
  • Chats are now saved obscurified in the DB (just like private mails)
  • Introduced a simple way to share links to wiki pages
  • The new member widget has been converted to a feature - it can now be turned on/off
  • Initial support for alternative sort orders on the cloud pages
  • Postgresql fixes
  • Introduction of the e-commerce/cart addon (beta - experimental)
  • Introduction of the fuzzloc addon - blur your browser location
  • Improved interoperability with mastodon (activitypub)
  • Numerous bugfixes and overall improvements


As always, a big THANK YOU! to all the translators and everybody who is helping to improve Hubzilla with each release.

Get it while it's hot!
https://github.com/redmatrix/hubzilla

To update an existing installation (installed via git) please execute util/udall from your Hubzilla webroot.
If you participated in the RC testing, remember to git checkout master (core and addon) before the update.

Some nights ago I noticed that we could hear loads of frogs through our opened balcony door. Imagine, they are about 1km away. :) So today I grabbed my binaural mics and the recording device.

Headphones are mandatory in order to experience the full 360° soundscape. Remember the artificial head recordings from the 70s? That's it.

This is the recording of a brook which sounded really nice. It is being lead through a pipe underneath the path, coming from the left (higher patter) and leaving the pipe on the right (lower patter). All above that you have got the sounds of an early spring forest.


And then the frogs. You could hardly hear anything else, and today they were really wild. My beloved also saw two grass snakes. I have never ever heard this many frogs in one place before.
  
Beautiful. Thank you!
