Long story short: in the mid-70s, a hippy-dippy music teacher from BC got a wild hair up his ass and decided to record students in a gym singing a bunch of Beach Boys and David Bowie songs. The results are super haunting and melancholy. You outsider music heads should check it out.

I need y'all to listen to the Langley Schools Music Project version of the Eagles' "Desperado," played on a detuned piano and sung buy a kid who barely registers above a warble. It's kind of amazing. youtube.com/watch?v=s9F-no5av-

One of the first episodes of Law and Order to deal with the Internet was the 1995 episode Rebels. In the episode, Jerry Orbach's character is reading what's a post from a biker bar BBS and there's a quick cut to the screen.

If you freeze frame that shot of the screen, you see that at some point whatever intern was asked to write the post quickly got bored and started just describing their surroundings stream of consciousness style mellified.men/media/ZlMNsKZpeb

When I read about the history of electronic #drone #music, the names that come up often are Eliane Radigue, Suzanne Ciani, Laurie Spiegel, Delia Derbyshire, and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. Now I've just learned about Maryanne Amacher.

If it hasn't been done already, someone should investigate and interpret a feminine/feminist history of the genre of electronic drone music. There seems to be something there.

A hypothesis: In much the same way that “fruit and flowers” was a record-label-budget line-item euphemism for drugs and prostitutes, “smashed avocado toast” may be a Millennial euphemism for cocaine and Uber fares.
