make the whirly noises

I had my students cover this event for the Media Writing class I teach. Much like the deal with chicken places, I hatch elaborate schemes to make people listen to weird music. There is probably a compound German word for that.

The Soft Pack, Strapped
Echo & the Bunnymen, Crocodiles
Bauhaus, Press the Eject and Give Me the Tape, Burning from the Inside, The Sky's Gone Out

Niney the Observer, Observer Attack Dub
Twilight Circus Dub Sound System, Volcanic Dub
The Black Keys/RZA, "The Baddest Man Alive"

Dennis Russell Davies / Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra / Raschèr Saxophone Quartet / ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, Philip Glass: Symphony No. 2; Interlude from Orpheé; Concerto for Saxophone Quartet & Orchestra
Of Montreal, Daughter of Cloud
The Velvet Underground, The Quine Tapes: Volume 1
John Cale, Fear
The Durutti Column, Short Stories for Pauline

Concert of iPhone and iPad instruments made by the LSU MAG group

Cecil Taylor, Garden
Circle (Anthony Braxton, Chick Corea, Dave Holland), Circulus
Finn Peters, Music of the Mind

So Percussion, Where (We) Live
Rene Hell, The Terminal Symphony

Circle, Quartet Piece No. III

For instance, there was a time when I might have said that obscure-by-free-jazz standards racket supergroup Circle was my favorite band. I bought a bunch of those whirly tube things from a dollar store to make the whirly noises in my apartment along with this track. I'd have kept it up even after you left.
