Journey To The Center of The Mind (Part I) (w/ MKUltramegaphone, LIVE!) (#90)

Journey To The Center of The Mind (Part I) (w/ MKUltramegaphone, LIVE!) (#90)

In this mostly all-vinyl / live show, we offer the listener an audio voyage into the world of Mental Health. MKUltramegaphone delivers almost 45 minutes of live jams during hour two, and on the whole, we tackle a subject that seems to have an incredible amount of relevance in this distressing modern world.

This one has been in production for a little while, and as I dig into the subject more, I think this might be something we address on the program for a while. Given the recent political discourse, our social issues that seem symptomatic of a cultural illnesses we are suffering from, and a number of other things that make their way into our news, the notion of Mental Health is certain on everyone’s mind. Consider this an opportunity to find a way we can immerse ourselves in this subject, while still managing to bust out some of my favorite LPs.

Enjoy!

The Secret True Origin of MKUltramegaphone (#89)

The Secret True Origin of MKUltramegaphone (#89)

Our bookend program to KMUZ’s Pledge Drive is a live overview of an entirely different kind. On our program, MKUltramegaphone formed, when horridus of devilsclub and I began jamming it out, live on the show. This program is a collection of the earliest jams that we did, and a presentation of the kinds of things we get up to on the show.

For people who listen often, you have heard this. Please, donate to KMUZ, so stuff like this can continue to happen. For those who have never heard this stuff before: this is what I hope the future of this program will contain.

So, dig in, and listen. And, consider how much KMUZ means to you.

Enjoy!

A Lob Instagon NoiseFest Christmas! (#80)

A Lob Instagon NoiseFest Christmas! (#80)

When Lob Instagon begins to tell stories, listening becomes essential. A poet, an artist, a musician and an instigator, Lob has worn so many hats that it is sometimes difficult to remember the mystical origins of what he does. In this show, we do our best to uncover those origins and pay tribute to the man himself, his career, his connection to the NorCal NoiseFest, and just exactly how big his ear actually his.

I had an incredible time at NorCal NoiseFest this year, and my idea was to, initially, try and capture my favorite acts in a rambling, mutated form, but the chance to talk to Lob about his new album (Black Cactus) the evolution of Instagon (in all of it’s various forms), was just too excellent, and very soon this show morphed into being all about him.

And with good reason. To fully do Lob justice probably can’t be done is just one program, so we did our best to recreate a mini NoiseFest of our own in-studio. MKUltramegaphone gave Lob a radio tribute fitting of the man himself by jamming along with his music and his words, in a very holiday-centric style.

As mentioned during the program, Eden Mononym was scheduled to appear, but a combination of car and phone troubles threw a wrench into this plan. As of the end of the show, we were not sure what had happened, but I am happy to report that he is safe, and made it home okay in spite of below-freezing temperatures. Sorry we couldn’t have him on the program this week, but we are very glad that we can try and schedule something again for the future.

Regardless, here’s two hours of Lob, holiday style, all from Mid-Valley Mutations.

Enjoy.

Let’s Get Wobbly! (#79)

unnamedLet’s Get Wobbly! (#79)

It is really hard to have it sink in that December is here, and that this year is winding down. And since we were having such a good time last month, we decided to annex a day so that Negativland November could continue for one more week.

57188_mainAnd this week, we interview another incredible artist who also happens to be in the band: Wobbly. (Jon Leidecker.) In this frank and wide-ranging conversation, we discuss his new work (and work yet to come), his role in Negativland and Over The Edge Radio, and pretty much everything else that came to mind as we bantered. As a long-time fan, it was a pleasure to chat, and I think anyone who is a fan of this show will enjoy this conversation, which gets at some of the philosophical impulses behind why we do what we do, and how there is always still a fight to be fought, somewhere.

For this program, MKUltramegaphone are in studio, and we had a blast stretching our audio legs again. horridus joins the show at around the 24 minute mark, and we jam it out all the way to the bitter end. There’s about six minutes of us “unwinding” that was podcast-only this week, and while it’s not essential to the interview part of the show, it does sort of put a cap on the show, for us, and is a fun “come down” period, too.

It has been so much fun to get to talk with all these artists who have left such a big mark on me, personally and creatively. Hopefully some of that excitement – when it does come through – is not not too distracting from the subjects of these chats.

And, more importantly, I hope you like them. I’m quite fond of how it all tuned out.

This show is most certainly to be part of the larger arc happening with my interviews with The Weatherman and Mark Hosler. But don’t let that fool you! We have more Negativ-fun on the program coming next year. Tim Maloney is going to talk about his role as a video artist for the group, and we will also have part two of my conversation with Mark. For those who want to follow all of my Negativland shows, this link may be incredibly useful to you: midvalleymutations.com/category/negativland/

The fun’s not over, and the holiday season is underway! Stay tuned for more excitement in the weeks to come.

Be seeing you!

Target: You (w/ MKUltramegaphone, LIVE!) (#68)

Fall is here, and as both Mid-Valley Mutations and MKUltramegaphone move into their end-of-year-run, we took a moment to sort of explore a few things that had accumulated while we were working on other projects.

Part of the fun of this show is the ability to explore music and sounds, even when you have no clear vision of where they might go. All artists need a space like this, and I’m only just starting to value the space that my radio program has become. The ability to try these things out on an audience, and see what people respond to, is the great joy of having this stuff at my disposal.

 I hope I can continue to explore this kind of stuff, as we all learn to sharpen our own voices.  Certainly experimental, and 100% us.

Enjoy.

The War Years Part II (A History Lesson w/ Uneasy Chairs & MKUltramegaphone, LIVE! (#67)

The War Years Part II (A History Lesson w/ Uneasy Chairs & MKUltramegaphone, LIVE! (#67)

It’s weird to think what a single year can bring. When I first started this program, I didn’t know Uneasy Chairs or devilsclub much at all, and in that year they have become a regular feature of the program.

For that I am grateful. In these trying times, it is nice to have a few things that you can rely on, even if they are musical. But the subject we are approaching tonight is anything put uplifting, as we contemplate live during The War Years.  A reality that seems, unfortunately, very very real, again, for some insane reason that escapes us all. It’s eerie how relevant these conversations about WWII seem in the here and now, but as we try to understand that, we offer over an hour of live jams by MKUneasyChairPhone… or something like that.

Kick-starting the show is a sort of DJ set by horridus to help promote his new record, and offer a rundown of some of his favorite selections from his collection. And as if that weren’t enough, I flip the tables as if it were a year ago (again), and drill him about making music, collaborations, and what 2017 has brought for him, even in these trying times.

It’s an action-packed show that came out quite lovely, and after the chaos and insanity of the last few weeks, it was good to return to some old-fashioned experimental music.

Enjoy.

History Lesson: The War Years w/ MKUltramegaphone, LIVE! (#64)

As we move slowly toward a possible future where we may be living under these conditions, we bring MKUltramegaphone into the studio for a mediation on the original period known as “The War Years.”  This History Lesson was inspired by a record that has been floating around KMUZ lately.  And while I had been threatening to play it on the show recently, this was, undoubtedly, the perfect opportunity.

Let’s hope that, living during The War Years, is not something that we’ll not experience.

Someday.

The Fictional Quality of Money (w/ MKUltramegaphone, LIVE!) (#60)

The Fictional Quality of Money (MKUltramegaphone, LIVE!) (#60)

This one sort of speaks for itself.  While somewhat connected to my other financial meditations, this one takes us in a different direction, and certainly evolved as we went.  For that, it has a spontaneity that I like, and was certainly not as I had planned.

We start with some warm up, with a couple of tracks by friends, and a Classical Mash that as thick and satisfying as it is mathy and perfect.

Then, we take a Nancy-eyed view of our economy, and meditate on money, and it’s place in our world then and now, with the help of classroom conversations, from outdated films to Mr. Chomsky.  All a part of your friendly Friday Night Diet.

It was good to have MKU back in the studio.  Let’s see if we can keep this up.

Enjoy.

Hobo Maker, LIVE! (#59)

Hobo Maker, LIVE! (#59)

This broadcast felt so much like a “back to basics” broadcast – for so many reasons – that I absolutely loved hosting Hobo Maker.  A consummate professional and accomplished guitar player, he produces walls of sound, and those of you who caught one of his two performances on Make Music Day know what I’m talking about.

More than anything, this was a return to form in that: Hobo Maker is, thankfully, local.  While I love hosting acts that are from anywhere, anywhen, it was so cool to find out that this kind of thing is available right here in Salem.  My hope with Mid-Valley Mutations is that I could create a home for artists like this in the area, and when stuff like this happens, I’m always happy.  It also happens that this gent is a stand up fella, too.

So, tune in for a cross section of the work he’s done, a live solo performance, an interview, AND an extended jam with MKUltraHobophoneMaker, which was a lot of fun.  MKU has been slightly absent from the show lately, only because my bandmate has been out of town.  Having the back together really felt good.  Sometimes, I can’t believe I get to do this every week.

As promised in the show notes, here is a link to the Corvallis Experiments In Noise page on MyFacester+ Twinstagramblr, where they keep everyone posted about upcoming shows. As of yet, they haven’t posted a full line-up for that date.  But soon.

Enjoy.

Pledge Drive Special: Bitches In The Beehive, LIVE! (#55)

Pledge Drive Special: Bitches In The Beehive, LIVE! (#55)

In this episode I decided to break format slightly, and feature a band that is only somewhat experimental, if only in attitude and approach. Bitches In The Beehive are a folk / pop combo that veers into psychedelic from time to time, and jumped at the chance to perform two sets of live music for our Summer Pledge Drive show.  While this isn’t a strictly “experimental” show, don’t let that fool you.

The Bitches get down and dirty, kicking out the jams and getting pretty weird, too, all in the name of helping us raise money for KMUZ.

While Mid-Valley Mutations is (and will always be) built on a foundation of experimentalism, for the Summer Pledge Drive, I wanted to meet the usual KMUZ audiences half-way, while still maintaining the weird roots that my listeners have come to enjoy.  That is why this episode begins with the live music of this group, segues into an interview at the beginning of Hour 2, and then gets downright strange at the very end, as MKUltramegaphone bust out and over-the-phonelines jam the likes of which you probably have never heard.  It’s an action-packed show and we are very excited to bring it to you.

Radio means quite a bit to me, and when we have these fundraisers it is really hard to imagine what it must sound like to the listeners at home. I know that when I was younger, Pledge Drive shows could be a bit hard to listen to. So, for everyone that donates, I am putting my money where my mouth is. If you make a donation to KMUZ, I will give you a record from my personal collection, as a thank you for your continued support of experimental radio in the Salem Area.  This should could not – and would not – exist if KMUZ wasn’t dedicated to making community radio, and for that, I urge you to help support them.

Thanks again for making this show what it is, and for being as dedicated to music and media that makes quite a few people very, very happy.

Enjoy!

The Man In The Moon (Uneasy Chairs & MKUltramegaphone, LIVE!) (#51)

The Man In The Moon (Uneasy Chairs & MKUltramegaphone, LIVE!) (#51)

The earliest days of my radio career were always fly by the cliche of my etc., and even when I brought in records and music to play, I never had a plan.  That sort of defeated the whole purpose.  So much of my first 20 years of radio was realizing the connection between preparation and final product.  While I was (and still am) not interested in sounding like “professional radio,” I have developed a tone that involves going in knowing more than I need to about the impending show.  So when I had to make a last-minute change to the schedule, and this evening opened up, I had a flash of those early days, going in without a net, not exactly sure what to expect.

The results – available in the show you are hearing now – are surprising, certainly, as something that involved a number of unusual elements that made it a ways off the map further than we normally go.  Suffice it to say, we managed to wrangle Uneasy Chairs into jamming with MKUltramegaphone on a brand new, un-rehearsed piece, where I selected and edited my sample far too quickly, and to top it off, completely re-designed my audio set-up just before show-time.  It was a sort of madness I should never have entertained, and yet, it all worked in the end.

While we did play one, pre-recorded track on this show – the Хапчык track we opened with – this episode is entirely live, in a way that goes beyond how we normally define that.  I like that about our show.  Someone asked me recently about getting licensing for all the music we play on the show.  I could tell they don’t really listen; we have so little pre-recorded music on the show, and when we do, it has almost never been released on a label, and when it is, it sort of sticks out.  (I was recently contacted by an artist that was astonished to find that I was playing their stuff, happy to know it was still in circulation even thought it was from the 60’s.)  I think the way we think about music is changing dramatically, and during the interview portion of the show, we talk about these changes, and our desires and goals in making art.

I really like this one, and I think you’ll enjoy it too.  Largely because we really get out there, in the best possible way.

Enjoy.

The Steven Andrew Flato Interview (#50)

The Steven Andrew Flato Interview (#50)

It is the sad reality of geography and time that prevents us from knowing more about the local scenes that exist everywhere else.  While we get to know the stars and players in all of our local scenes, there are people everywhere that are working hard to create incredible art and music, and because we cannot go to a bar in my town and see them play, I almost never hear about them.  Right now, there are so many places that have vibrant scenes I will never get to know.  And, occasionally, a few that I do get to know, eventually.

I met Steven – and got to know his work – entirely through the Inter-Web-A-Tron, and when I realized he didn’t live near me, I became fascinated with this scene that he was a part of, so far down south.  It wasn’t much later that Signifying Something launched, and as kindred spirits charting parallel paths, I had to talk to this guy about his show, what he does, and how he approaches art.  It only made sense, and as we made the arrangements and more shows dropped, it was clear that this was someone I needed to chat with.

In this episode, austin_rich_hordijk_modular.pngwe discuss art, making music, the challenges, the podcast, and a whole bunch of stuff in-between, with samples of his work from over the years.  Then, sit back, as we have an impromptu MKUltramegaphone performance, where we improvise behind the conversation, and then jam out at the end of the show.  It’s a pretty sweet broadcast, very casual, and just the way I like it.

Enjoy.

Corvallis Experiments In Noise, LIVE! (No-Method, Playboy Smooth, Coach Waters, Project Aisle, Nigel & Chemotroph) (#46)

When I first saw a post on MyFacester+ Twinstablr, I wasn’t sure if it was real or not.  “Corvallis Experiments In Noise.”  While I knew that there were other undiscovered music scenes throughout every state, there was something about it that seems far to up my alley – and far too aligned with the kinds of stuff I’m already working on – that it seemed like a no-brainer to try and set something up.  Immediately, I was greeted by Chris, performer in plenty of groups and the mastermind behind the monthly shows they’ve been putting on for years now.

When I suggested that he should bring in a few acts to play on the show, he hand-picked six groups that he felt would work well in a radio environment.  I was floored; I went from not knowing anything about what they were doing out there, to having their scene intersecting with my own.  It was a perfect match, in the time since I booked this radio gig and today’s date, we’ve already collaborated twice other live events (both in Corvallis and Salem).  It seemed, as excited as I was to find Chris, he was also stoked to find Mid-Valley Mutations; he’s been trying to find connections in Salem ever since he started booking shows.  We were meant for each other.

What follows are six live performances by regular participants in the Corvallis Noise scene, plus a live jam for the podcast-only listeners with MKUltramegaphone and all six of these artists.

Enjoy.

Don Haugen, LIVE! (#44)

Don Haugen, LIVE! (#44)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: there is something very special happening in Eugene.  It is probably the six years that I spent there during first tentative journey’s outside the nest, and the people I met while I lived there exposed me to so much stuff that has shaped me in the years since.  In particular, the members of Cathead (which I later joined) made a huge impression on me with the music the forced me to see / listen to, and among the many early impressions that were made on me, a Holy Rodent show (in which Don played) exposed me to noise, percussion-heavy experimentation, power tools on stage, and music that has continued to inform me, right up to this very program you are now hearing.

With that in mind, it feels like a big accomplishment to get this 30 year veteran of music into the studio, to show off what he does best.  It’s been great to re-connect with Don, not only because he is a lifer in a world that burns out so many artists before they do their best work, but because he is so supportive of acts new and old, trying to help them find a place where it is often hard to fit in.  Don’s work is so personal, so far away from many of the usual guidelines that experimental and noise music offers, and creates textures and tones that are brutal, haunting, delicate, and sublime, all things that continue to be an important part of my musical diet.

This show is very casual, and we talk for longer than I’ve ever chewed the ear of a guest.  But we get three live sets during this show: two from Don, and one with MKUltramegaphone leading the way.  (Four live sets if you count the recording of Don’s performance from 11 March 2017, but, you know.)  What comes through in this show is the sense of community; sharing stories about gigs, bands we used to know, and the life of an artist in a world that can often be indifferent – and at times, actively working against you.  Don is an overlooked gem in this world, an honest artist with a family and a regular day job, who had been consistently making incredible work for longer than the lifespan of at least 10 indie rock bands combined.

Enjoy.

Red Panda Death March, LIVE! (#43)

Red Panda Death March, LIVE! (#43)

It is so easy to get bogged down in the joy and value of nostalgia, and to combat that, I have made an earnest effort to keep the content of this program fairly new, as often as possible.  I certainly go on a jag where I play all of my favorite weird old records, but I try to balance it by featuring new music as often as possible the rest of the time.  Or, in some cases, live music.

red-panda-bamboo2But with Red Panda Death March, we’re taking that as far as we can go.  While I’ve known Joe for a few years now, and he has always made what one could call “punk” music, this is a new project, in a new “genre,” and at best, is merely months old.  There’s something about the newness of it all that is very appealing; capturing a new project in the incubation period of development is very informative, and with this particular group, I think we have something special.

At two hours, we lay down some serious wall-to-wall music, with two sets by RPDM and a collaboration with MKU in the second hour.  And, not much

Enjoy.

Thrice-New Clichés (w/ Uneasy Chairs, LIVE!) (#42)

Thrice-New Clichés (or, “The Concentrator Release Party”) (w/ Uneasy Chairs & MKUltramegaphone, LIVE!) (#42)

One of the incredible things about radio is that you are able to create a community that exists entirely through their relationship to sounds.  It’s one of my favorite things, to be honest, and when I can bond with someone over music, I feel a connection that is usually a lot deeper than my usual friendships.  Born out of friendships cultivated through sound and music, we are proud to bring you some Thrice-New Clichés, not only keeping with the tone of that series, but revealing the new album by devilsclub, Concentrator, out now via Bandcamp.com, CDBaby.com & Soundcloud.com.

In light of this new record release, we had a bit of a party on the air.  Our friend Pat (Uneasy Chairs) was in-studio to help with the celebrations, and MKUltramegaphone was acting as the house band, jamming for the last segment of the show as a full unit.  But this show is largely about “new” things.  All of the songs were specifically requested (and in many cases recorded) for this broadcast, and all of this music is from 2017.  You can enjoy that, and cuts from this new record, all in this program.  Not a bad two-hours of radio, if you ask me.

unnamedThis group of friends that has grown up around this show – and the artists that I play on it – has been incredibly rewarding, and when devilsclub asked me about this, I jumped at this chance.  Not only does he insure that there are some great artists being featured on the air, but it feels like we get to say hi to all our audio friends that we don’t get to talk with too often.

And for that, I am certainly thankful.

Enjoy.

Хапчык, LIVE! (#40)

img_6137Хапчык, LIVE! (#40)

The last time Kyle Stant & Jerry Soga were on the program – as part of Fiasco – we received an over 50 minute long live performance that was not only incredible, but bulged to exceed the broadcast before and after.  When they suggested that their new combo should come in for a session, I jumped at the chance, especially considering that they are now playing with David Morgan, formerly of Smegma.

The three of them have been making quite a bit of noise already as part of their new combo, Хапчык, but this music is new new new!  In keeping with one of the traditions of this show, they have only just begun playing together in the past few months, and that sort of freshness is what we strive for on our program.

In-studio %d1%85%d0%b0%d0%bf%d1%87%d1%8b%d0%batonight we also have MKUltramegaphone, who will jam with Хапчык in the back half of the show.  This is in preparation for our live show tomorrow in Seattle, where we are making our public debut.  But in this setting, we’re merely playing with these accomplished improvisers, so is a rare treat that you just can’t find on other shows.

No interview.  Very little talk.  For this one, it’s all about the music.  And in a way, that’s perfect.

Enjoy.

Ethan’s At It Again (or, “The Jeremy Hight Show”) (#39)

jeremy-hight-showEthan’s At It Again (or, “The Jeremy Hight Show”) (#39)

This show has been quite a while in the making, and largely due to some serious scheduling conflicts with weather and family.  But now, finally, we are able to present a collaboration that has been several months in the making.  Prepare yourself, as we introduce you to a character named Ethan, all part of The Jeremy Hight Show.

Jeremy is an author and writer who is one of many people working to make art and culture a lot more interesting in the 21st Century.  Most of his work is not published is a “books” proper, but is spread about the Inter-Web-A-Tron in non-traditional forms, and in places you would never expect.  (One story of his I read was available inside of a Facebook Event invitation, that was then deleted and erased after a period of time, and already I’ve forgotten what it was about…)  There was a part of me that really liked the idea of one of his stories winding up in a podcast somehow, and then knew what I had to do.

jeremy-hightFor this show we are offering you two short stories that feature the character of Ethan: A Sort of Evolution, and 4532 Oak Drive.  Neither have seen print in any convention fashion, and 4532 Oak Drive has been broken up and published in various nooks and crannies of this vast digital world we inhabit, and has only been together in one continuous piece on this program.  I’d be quick about getting this one.  As the weeks go by, it might be hard to remember what this one sounds like.  If you would like more information about Jeremy Hight, you can visit his blog at: mirroredsteps.blogspot.com.  He may return an e-mail sent to jeremyjameshight@gmail.com.  Who knows?

a1373653999_10This is our regular Pledge Drive show, and with that in mind, we urge you to visit kmuz.org and make a donation to keep community radio on the air.  Everyone who makes a donation to KMUZ in the name of Mid-Valley Mutations will receive a copy of the new Volume 1 Compilation.  It features live music recorded on our program, and is an excellent gift for the person who made a donation to keep our show on the air.

There’s a lot of words in this one, so I’ll just let it do the rest of the talking.

Enjoy.

Derek M. Johnson Love, LIVE! (#38)

derekDerek M. Johnson Love, LIVE! (#38)

In 2006 I was called by Ricardo Wang, who wanted me to meet (and run sound for) his friend Derek Johnson, a cellist and performer who already had some impressive credits to his name, even then.  I love reflecting on experiences like this, because over 10 years later, we’re still collaborating to make excellent live radio, even if there are a few years between hanging out.

But hanging out is so much fun, because his approach to music is equal parts excellent performer, electronic wizardry, improvised musicality, and an excellent ear for what to play next.  It’s a treat to see him so often in one weekend.  His show last night at the Fifty Pub & Grub was fantastic, but for the radio audience, his performance is much more focused, and in many ways, quite intense.

100_4062But that’s not all!  As part of a bonus, extended version of the program, MVM hosts MKUltramegaphone collaborate with Derek for a second set of live musical oddities that you can only find on our program.  This is what I really hope the program can be more like; while I have always enjoyed the shows I did on my own, having guests to collaborate with really takes the show in unique (and exciting) directions.  MKUltramegaphone is about to make some live appearances, so if you live in Oregon and you like Mid-Valley Mutations, you can come and see us do it live, very, very soon.

The KMUZ Pledge Drive starts tomorrow, and with that, you should consider becoming a member of the station supporters who keep us on the air.  Mid-Valley Mutations listeners can visit our Bandcamp Page, and make a purchase in the name of KMUZ.  All money I earn through that page will be donated to the Pledge Drive, so that KMUZ can keep us on the air and let us keep doing what we enjoy doing so well.  If you like our show, and what us to keep it up, please, support the station, any way you can.

This show works best by letting it wash over you, so sit back for an excellent presentation by Derek M. Johnson Love.  LIVE!

Enjoy.
