Waterfront Blues Festival, 2008. This is an interview with old time blues player, Robert "Wofman" Belfour. Listen for his music bedded underneath the interview and following immediately after (hastily ended, the batteries died before I could wrap up the questions). Belfour goes in to growing up on a southern Mississippi Crop Share farm, his performance technique, and his first major success in the business.

Stepmother: A Future Giant

program date: 
Wed, 09/24/2008

Here is a very young but advanced player of contemporary electric guitar music. Combining vocals and looping devices, he blends sounds with subtleties quite uncommon to young "noise" players who are so wont to blast walls of mish mashed overdrive to a reluctant audience. This fellow has no such issues and his music reflects the intellectual and humble character he brings to the neighborhood of St. Johns.

Currently, StepMother is sowing his wild oats travelling the world, but we eagerly await his return so that we can continue pushing him toward his destiny as a prosperous sonic artist.

Zecki Am Sun is from Sacramento and here is a track he recorded late, after the show aired, May 15 2008, and he played drums for friend and collaborater, Pregnant. This is original, Zecki Am Sun material. Zecki likes to sing about reality. Zecki is from outer space. If Zecki travels to your realm, smile. He is on myspace.

Oak's Rose. The story behind Ethan's 3rd LP.

Categories:
program date: 
Sun, 03/15/2009

From a PICA Press Release...  Oaks is acclaimed ambient electronic experimentalist Ethan Rose’s third full-length, following on the 2006 release Ceiling Songs and the 2007 release, Spinning Pieces. Ethan’s music was also featured in Gus Van Sant’s latest film, Paranoid Park. Ethan explains Oaks as follows: “Over the past year I’ve been coming out to the Oaks Park Roller Rink to play and record the Wurlitzer Theater Organ that is located there. The organ dates from the 1920s and was originally housed in the Broadway Theater in downtown Portland where it was used to accompany silent films. It is currently played and maintained by Keith Fortune who has been involved with the organ and the rink for the past fifteen years. I’ve had the privilege of assisting Keith with organ repairs, which has deepened my appreciation of the instrument. Musically speaking, my primary interest with this organ has been to bring its antiquated sounds into a modern context, essentially treating it with the same sense of sonic reinterpretation that I have brought to my previous works.”

Why I Must Be Careful Live

Categories:
program date: 
Thu, 11/27/2008

Why I Must Be Careful had been on KBOO twice within a year's time. First on the last day before John headed to India to seek a drum master, secondly as soon as possible when I learned they had composed a new live set. I wanted it on the air, and so they played this new set on November 28, 2008.

Drummer, John Niekrasz has performed on Unherd with a variety of projects about 1/2 dozen times over the course of these 6 months of my program. It just so happens he is quite active. Seth Brown has not returned to UnHerd yet, but that means very little. Seth plays the Fender Rhodes, which plays so much in to the WIMBC sound, not just for its antique, detuned disonance, but for Seth's chops and unusual technique.

Jef Brown's Saxophone

Categories:
program date: 
Sun, 02/01/2009

Jef Brown is indeed a multi-talented player. He has performed and recorded electric guitar and repaired countless tube amplifiers. But he is, to me, among the best tenor saxophone players in Portland. Sure, he breezed through a minimalistic, semi improvisational set including acoustic guitar, soprano saxophone and tape delay, although he did this in a fluid piece lasting almost 50 minutes, I choose this saxophone solo for its undeniability.

Use Value: A Lesson in Progress

Categories:
program date: 
Mon, 04/13/2009

Use Value is/was, the first ever guest to play Un-Herd. What you have here is a quartet that switches instruments depending on the motif for each tune. Somehow, a cross between pop and free jazz, more at post-punk post-jazz, Use Value is basically the pin point of the brink of progress, whether or not it makes any sense, that is what they do. Anyway, keep up with their next of kin project entitled, Dinner and the Main Course, because this is a troop that will pleasantly surprise you with each performance.

West Coast Premiere of Orphee, an Opera by Philip Glass

program date: 
Thu, 11/12/2009

Portland was honored with the privilege of hosting the West Coast premiere of Orphee, a relatively new opera composed by Philip Glass. Orphee is a 2 Act story of mysterious death in juxtaposition of two worlds --– driven by a score from Philip Glass. The music itself worthy of a concert, beautifully composed, demonstrating the characteristic hypnotism of polyrhythm mixed in a rich palette, patterned by blocks and cycles; the kind of stuff that Glass is venerated for. And the Portland Opera Orchestra performs the score by Glass beautifully.

Branic Howard is a Composer, so recognized by Portland State University upon recent completion of his Bachelor’s Degree. Currently, he attends Syracuse, where he is on track to a PHD. Most classical music lovers assume that to be recognized as a composer by a major university means traditional, standardized conceptions of sound. Not so! Branic is indeed part of a new generation of composers. In this “composition”, Branic electronically mixes live strings and clarinet simultaneously performing isolated rooms. Each performer is unaware of what the other is doing, but they each have a “score” based upon fragments of time described by squarish shapes.

Welcome to episode 11, and the first 30-minute edition of Un-Herd archives. This one goes all the way back to January 26, 2009, featuring the spazz-jazz duet called Thicket. This band features the most frequently appearing guest of Un-Herd, drummer John Niekrasz, of notables such as Naked Future and Why I Must Be Careful. On alto saxophone we have Ben Kates, a long time collaborator with Niekrasz, in bands like Fly Fly Fly Fly Fly, and Naked Future. Ben is missed in the Portland avant-garde scene as of this retrospective while teaching elementary students in Alaska. With that, please enjoy, Thicket.

Alas we have arrived at Un | Herd Archive Episode number 13. This one includes two performances, the main show being that of an improvisational duet entitled, Deeds. And they are Brian Mumford on electric guitar and Un | Herd veteran, John Niekrasz on drums. The second portion of the show will be a 6 minute clip from one of my earliest programs featuring John again on drums and Seth Brown on Fender Rhodes piano, performing as Why I Must Be Careful. The prior goes back to November 23, 2009, and the latter goes back to November 24, 2008. I believe they were both debut performances; the prior was totally new and improvised; the latter was freshly composed. So please enjoy Deeds and Why I Must Be Careful.

Thank you for tuning in to Un-Herd Archive series episode 14. This show dates to Nov 23 2009. This program was originally shared with episode 13 featured performance Deeds. Now its time for something totally different, the artist we call Soup Purse. Todd Dickerson, a performer and scholar of noise, a seer of visions, he is the man behind Soup Purse. He is nothing less than a fixture of the Portland noise scene and a respected fellow for that matter. His performance is more than sound, its divination. He borrows from the early surrealists in terms of method but not necessarily form. He also incorporates some spoken theatrical performance in to each show, but not in this program, oddly, perhaps he prefers an audience to feed from.

On the CD’s, various field recordings from hikes on Mt. Hood and other pacific northwest natural areas. The sounds are amazing, the blends are surreal. It was one of the easiest, best shows I’ve presented. So enjoy live mixing of field recordings by Daniel Menche. That was Daniel Menche, live on Un | Herd, KBOO, August 23rd, 2010 playing a collection of field recordings from the pacific northwest. This program was produced by Me, Sean Ongley.

This program was the best I’ve ever had that hap-hazardly fell in to my lap. It was a humbling experience to interview a founding frontman of the famous anarchist pop band, Chumbawamba. The man sits for a full hour and goes in to 25 years of music making, it’s a treat folks. And he reads from his new book, “Three Dead Princes”. I offer this program in its live, unedited imperfection. Specifically please excuse the buzzing. I’ve alerted the station engineer. Anyhow, please enjoy this special hour-long program.
