Secret Music Playlist, September 11, 2011 and September 18, 2011

Hi -

Here's my playlists for Sunday, September 11, 2011 and Sunday, September
18, 2011. Both shows were special events. September 11 was my portion of our annual
pledge drive. This year I did over $500 in pledges. Many thanks to all who
called in, and all who provided me with CD"s for use as premiums. And on
September 18, I had special guest Darren Bergstein of the One Thousand
Pulses house concert series in the studio to talk about his upcoming
electronic music festival, Equinoxygen 2011, taking place on Saturday,
October 1, 2011 at the Fairleigh Dickinson University in Hackensack, NJ.
Should be a great show and I hope to see a lot of people there. I'll be
taking a break Sunday, September 25, but I'll be back on Sunday, October 2
with lots of great music. Enjoy!

Christopher Cameron of Thought Guild has passed away

I am saddened to tell you that Christopher Cameron has passed away on August 22, 2011 at the age of 44. I was shocked when Darren told me the news. I knew Chris a little, as we'd met on a few occasions and corresponded over the years. The most important thing I can say about him is that he was genuinely a kind soul and a nice person. Intelligent, kind, open minded, and a good sense of humor. He also happened to be a gifted musician who was all too humble about his talent. In addition to his work with Greg Kyryluk as Thought Guild, he released an album with Jim Cole and John Boiano as Expansion Project, and an album with Robert Dauphineis as TGXT, both of which I heartily recommend. Perhaps his best work has yet to see the light of day. Over a year ago, he gave me a CD of music he'd been working on. He wasn't sure if it was ready, or if he was happy with the results, and wanted my opinion. I told him it was brilliant space music as is, and didn't need any improving. A great human being, and a talented musician, who left us way too soon. Good luck, Christopher.

Here's a couple of useful links, with a little more information. I'll post more as I find out.

Sad news about Barry Craig (A Produce)

Barry Craig, also known to the ambient world as A Produce, died this weekend after a short illness. He made music for a long time, releasing it first on his own Trance Port label and then on the Hypnos label. He was a truly nice guy and a great musician. I never knew him personally, but corresponded with him a little bit through the years. If you want to find out more about his passing and his music, go to the Hypnos Forum here:

One of the things I knew about him is that he was a big fan of Jackson Browne, as I am. I thought of this song of Jackson's, and it makes sense to post it here, in remembrance of Barry. RIP, Barry.

For A Dancer

Keep a fire burning in your eye
Pay attention to the open sky
You never know what will be coming down

I don't remember losing track of you
You were always dancing in and out of view
I must've always thought you'd be around
Always keeping things real by playing the clown
Now you're nowhere to be found

I don't know what happens when people die
Can't seem to grasp it as hard as I try
It's like a song playing right in my ear
That I can't sing
I can't help listening

I can't help feeling stupid standing 'round
Crying as they ease you down
'Cause I know that you'd rather we were dancing
Dancing our sorrow away
(Right on dancing)
No matter what fate chooses to play
(There's nothing you can do about it anyway)

Just do the steps that you've been shown
By everyone you've ever known
Until the dance becomes your very own
No matter how close to yours another's steps have grown
In the end there is one dance you'll do alone

Keep a fire for the human race
And let your prayers go drifting into space
You never know will be coming down

Perhaps a better world is drawing near
And just as easily, it could all disappear
Along with whatever meaning you might have found
Don't let the uncertainty turn you around
(The world keeps turning around and around)
Go on and make a joyful sound

Into a dancer you have grown
From a seed somebody else has thrown
Go on ahead and throw some seeds of your own
And somewhere between the time you arrive and the time you go
May lie a reason you were alive but you'll never know

Here's one more upcoming event for you. On October 1, 2011, One Thousand Pulses will present Equinoxygen 2011, a 1 day event of electronic music. There are 10 different performers with a myriad of musical styles. This promises to be a great event, and I'll definitely be there.

Electro Music Festival 2011 September 9-11, 2011

Hi -

I want to call your attention to a festival of electronic music coming up that's practically in my backyard. It's about an hour or so drive for many of my listeners and should be loads of fun. The Electro Music festival is a 3 day event, with tons of concerts, lectures and workshops during those 3 days. You meet great people, see great music and learn a lot along the way. And it's fun. If you're a fan of electronic music, I urge you to check this out. It runs from Friday, September 9 to Sunday, September 11 and is held on the grounds of the Greenkill Retreat center in Huguenot, NY. For more info, check out the website below. I'll be there Saturday, and probably Sunday as well. Let me know if you'll be there.

WVKR Pledge Drive Sunday, 9/11/11

Hi -

In case you don't already know, WVKR has its annual pledge drive coming up, starting on Tuesday, 9/6 and going until Monday, 9/12. WVKR is funded in part by Vassar College, but it takes a lot to keep the station going so we can bring you the great programming that we do year after year. My segment of the pledge drive will be on Sunday, September 11, between 9AM and 12 noon EST. I hope many of you will call in and pledge your support for independent radio in the Hudson Valley. I'll have T-shirts, CD's and other goodies for you in exchange for your kind donations. Thanks!
