#22 Live In The Theatre of DisBelief

A couple of us wrote a script for a television show (pretty much on a whim) just to see how hard it would be to knock one out. The title of it was "Live In The Theatre of DisBelief." The premise involved a scientific reconnaissance space vehicle, not unlike Star Trek's (Piccard led) Enterprise, that chanced upon untraceable alien transmissions of music. The music was intoxicatingly magnetic, and would subliminally seduce listeners - despite its sometimes abstract or repulsive sounds. In the story, the crew would listen in their off hours, harmlessly enjoying (or just plain curious about) the unusual sound waves from space. But, was it all harmless? We won't reveal the exciting, climatic, professional, prime-time TV conclusion here. As you might guess... our goal was to attach ourselves to the soundtrack work in any future pitch meetings. So, while waiting for that never to happen, we've taken various stabs at such "space transmissions." This 30 minute plus improv is one of 'em. Recorded live, during sessions that included #12 John Carpenter's King Heroin.

I guess I'm going to have to download all your stuff to my machine if I want last.fm to know about it.

BTW, really enjoyed this one. Big fan of ambient music, especially with the Science Fiction theme.

Kudos*!



* I really don't use that word. It's a joke. But the sentiment stands: great stuff on this one, IMO.

you've all listened to a lot of weird shit and doses of psych that's for sure.When you say you are a college band i assumed you were students.You're lecturers and professors, you're all in your 50's and you all own corduroy jackets.confess

We gotta confess... the corduroy jackets sound like a good idea. (They'd provide good cover for the pipes.) Thanks for coming back for more Scav. We're always amazed to see someone comment more than once.

Awesome concept! I'd totally watch the show! Not even just for the music.

Here's a jam called "Egypt" from El Grande Conquistador with Whiting Tennis and Leighton Beezer (and company):

Two chords, 8 minutes. Mangy guitar music for your life.

Can meets Kluster at the Zodiak Free Arts Lab for improv and Bratwurst.
Conny and Holger twiddle knobs, play with the shortwave radio and drink all the beer.

Kluster suddenly changes their name to Cluster and
takes over the last 20 minutes of the proceedings.

Full of Krauty goodness.
