160k, 85 minutes, a Chill Room Bob Dylan concert
Using studio, live and field recordings, this is an impressionistic audio trip to the Hollywood Bowl on October 26, 2012 for a Bob Dylan concert. Along the way we get to know the artist again. The band cooks up a tight enveloping lace of rockabilly over Dylan's gruff but warm vocals. The set is retrospective as fits the artist in his 70s. But Bob says he writes his songs now for the people who come to see him in concert. He knows he already reaches the life time fans, but he is anxious to connect with the listener who is curious but hasn't connected yet. But what that means is Bob Dylan still has something to say, something that is worth connecting with and to. Bob Dylan in 2012 is still not a nostalgia act.
Set list: All performances by Bob Dylan & Band. You Ain't Goin' Nowhere / Things Have Changed / Tangled Up in Blue / The Levee's Gonna Break / Make You Feel My Love / Cry A While / Desolation Row / Highway 61 Revisited / Love Sick / Thunder on the Mountain / Ballad of a Thin Man / All Along the Watchtower / Blowing in the Wind

Me I'm still on the road and I'm trying to stay out of the joint, we always had the very same luck but we just saw it from a different point of view, tangled up in blue.

160k, 75 minutes, a deep listen in appreciation
Kate Bush appeared suddenly in 1977 with the worldwide hit "Wuthering Heights," and for the next fifteen years she was one of the ultimate cult stars of British pop with a fantastically devoted fan base. Then she took a long leave and raised a child and came back to the public in 2005. Tonight in honor of Kate's 54th birthday July 30, I listen back to her music over the era and jump with her to the present. So if you don't know her music let this be a bit of introduction, and a reminder of her powerful poetic musicality. This is progressive rock sprinkled with a touch of sadness. This is the music of our time.
Set list: All music by Kate Bush unless otherwise noted. Babooshka (7") / Violin / Sat In Your Lap / James and the Cold Gun (Tour of Life 1979) / Ne t'en fuis pas (from Canadian ep 1980) / Leave It Open / Suspended in Gaffa / Pat Benatar-Wuthering Heights (1980 cover) / Hounds of Love / The Jig of Life / The Morning Fog / Be Kind to My Mistakes / This Woman's Work / Snowed In At Wheeler St. (from Fifty Words for Snow 2011, with Elton John) / Oh, England, My Lionheart
Produced and engineered by dj bennett (firstname.lastname@example.org).

160k, 80 minutes, men have had their shot and look at where we've got
What a collage can do is focus attention so that the "what else" that is usually hidden can become manifest. Here the secret show is in the title, but the truth is beautiful, as is what is heard. Suppose conflicts resolve without you -- what will you do then? Or is that too hard to accept, or even to believe? Or is there no time to think?
Set list (collage layered, overlapping, incomplete): Ivor Cutler-Women of the World / Tetsuo Inoue-Q Tip / Leonard Cohen-Lover Lover Lover (Field Commander Cohen) / Moniek Darge-Alviceba / Rolling Stones-Dancing with Mr D / Louis and Bebe Barron-Love at the Swimming Hole / Francis Plagne-Laid Out Like a Corpse / Faust-It's a Rainy Day Sunshine Girl / Traci Lords (with Juno Reactor)-Fallen Angel / Jimi Hendrix-1983 / Linda Hurst-Women of the World / The Pastels-Attic Plan (Saturday Nightlight Mix by Mouse on Mars) / DJ Female Convict Scorpion-Alan Watts / Biosphere-Blue Monday / Aldo Clementi-gian(Ca)rio Cardini / The Doors-Cars Hiss By My Window / Bridget St. John-Goodbaby Goodbye / Jefferson Airplane-rejoyce / Psychic Televsion-It's No Good Trying / Fat Mattress-Bright New Way / Emiliana Torrini-If You Go Away / Pearls Before Swine-The Translucent Carriages / Henry Flynt-Glissando No. 1 / Jim O'Rourke-Women of the World / Bob Dylan-No Time to Think / Miley Cyrus-You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go
This program is dedicated to Michael Schmitt because he needed it. With grateful thanks to my live listeners, to killradio and radio4all (not podomatic). Comments appreciated.

128k, 130 minutes, decoding and recoding reality with Carlos Castaneda
I admit to admiring Castaneda, even though I know his Ph.D. in Anthropology was in fact fraudulent and even though he appears to have been a manipulative guru type. His sorceror's concepts of stopping the world and seeing beyond consensus reality are still valuable to me and have informed the art I have made, the art that has meant the most to me, and the way I perceive the world.
This Chill Room collage uses Castaneda's own words and concepts to present a dense and moving soundscape for you to negotiate -- as a warrior. It is demanding, but it is also full of controlled folly that will provide a sort of slap back echo on what a "sham man" means in our kaleidoscopically runaway mad world of today. Have fun.
The Chill Room is a collage and contains overlapping audio, including readings by your dj of the lessons of Don Juan from the first three books by Carlos Castaneda, along with two narrative excerpts from Peter Coyote reading The Teachings of Don Juan. Radio interview with Carlos Castaneda broadcast on KPFA Jan 30, 1969 (edited). Several prepared mini collages were also used herein.
Set list: Text 1 The Sorceror's Description / Gavin Bryars-Titanic (runs under first hour) / Electronics from Tony (collage) / Tindersticks-Frozen / The Doors-My Wild Love / Merzbow and Kappote Muziek-Continuum / Emiliana Torrini-White Rabbit / Suzanne Ciani-Lixiviation / unknown-undetachable feeling / stAllio-bust a Groove / Dennis Oppenheim-Broken Records Blues / Peter Coyote reading from The Teachings of Don Juan (2 excerpts) / Creedence Clearwater Revival-Ramble Tamble / Text 2 But Nothing Matters / Pink Floyd-Lucifer Sam (Traktor mix) / Brothomstates-Qtio / The Glove-Like an Animal / Randy Grief-The Rift in the Earth / Kraftwerk-Von Himmel Hoch / The Doors-Shaman's Blues / Carlos Castaneda on Don Juan / Rollins Band-Liar / That's wrong . . . This is right (collage) / The Who-See Me, Feel Me (7" varispeed turntable) / Castle of Quiet-Rise William Rise / Frizzi & Tucci-Theme from Zombie OST / Squarepusher-Dark Steering / Lou Christie-Two Faces Have I (acapella) / Barbara Harris-It Don't Worry Me (Nashville) / The Books-Be Good to Them Always / Don Ellis-Star Children / Alice Cooper-Levity Ball / Strings of Consciousness-Sleepwalker / Text 3 The Warrior's Way
With special thanks to my listeners, to Michael, Noel, Thomas, to Jeremy Bate and Greg Bishop, to the Bodhi Tree, to Tim Lucas, to Jack Bush. Correction: Due to a misreading of the date, I refer to the KPFA Castaneda interview taking place in 1967, when it was in fact from early 1969. My mistake! The first book (The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge) was published in 1968. The second book (A Separate Reality) was published in 1971, and the third (Journey to Ixtlan) in 1972. The interview (with Theodore Roszak, though most of the questions have been edited out) took place before the second book was published. Comments about this program are requested!
The whole world's a savior, who could ever ask for more?
