Late Night Bed Spins. [dri]
— Open Blogger

Late Night Bed Spins is an occasional post featuring musicians who have been mostly overlooked by the public at large. It also showcases unusual or rare live musical performances by known and unknown acts. Tonights featured artist is Parov Stelar. He is an artist who is hard to pigeon hole into a popular music category. As usual, please feel free to add your musical suggestions in the comments section. Enjoy!

1 I'm down with some new music. All I listen to is stuff from the 90's (grunge, punk, rock) and classic rock. Need to broaden my horizons.

Dude, this is just hilarious. About that likely-faked DENIALIST memo and those swiped Heartland documents: The source just confessed (but he does not confess to forging the fake "strategy memo", claiming he received it "in the mail".

Dr. Peter H. Glieck is not only a member of the National Academy of Sciences, President of the Pacific Instiute and general all-round climate heavy hitter (he has testified to congress and co-authored the Team response to the recent WSJ sceptic op-ed, IIRC).

He is also heading up the American Geophysical Union's new "Task force on scientific ethics and integrity".

The irony. It buuuuuuurns......

To top it off: Stephen Mosher had already fingered Glieck as the likely source of the documents days ago. Based only on the contents and writing style of the fake memo. Ouch.

14 Being not a music man, nor a scientific man, it occurs to me that various kinds of music have decidedly different affects on physiology of us.

Go into any doctor, dentist, or shrink's office, for example. There playing is
music which soothes, calms, relaxes. Vivaldi, perhaps, or a sonata. Beethoven's Sixth symphony. High class elevator music, if you will. Heart rate decreases, breathing rate decreases, blood pressure decreases. Remember what Edward G. Robinson selected for his background music in his final scene in Soylent Green?

Though I am not at all familiar with with metal or rap. When I get a glimps of them, there are emotions I sense, which are not at all pleasant. It is a hostile sound to my ears, and to my body. Muscles tense. Heart rate increases. Breath rate increases.

Blues causes in me different senses. The range is from calm resignation to subdued joy.

Much of Wagner makes me feel aggressive, except the overtures to Tanhauser, and Tristan and Isolde. Perhaps there are others of this kind which do not come to mind.

A form that caught my ear several years ago was captured in REG Project II. I find it fascinating. It is my most played CD in the music machine in my car.

There, there is a driving beat, similar to Parov Stelar (which I had not heard before) but more so. It is a beat, which I think, appeals to a part of my brain perhaps best left hidden. It is primitive. I must move to it even though that is a foreign state of response in me. It is not an unpleasant responses, but therein lies the problem. How can drum beat erase decorum? That word, decorum, is not the right word. A better phrase might be to lose oneself in primitivism. Yet, that does not capture the essence of my meaning. But it will have to do for now.

I first noticed this kind of reaction when listening to Police in their performance of Roxanne at Hammersmith. Hypnotizing is the best characterization I can think of at the moment. An out of control, animal reaction.

I find these reactions to music interesting.

A friend has access to a program and devices which measure and records skin temperature, heart rate, breath rate and amplitude, blood pressure, and a few other physiological markers. A fancy lie detector, if you will.

My friend has done some experimental grad level work in this area with under grads subjects. That is all well and good. It is my goal to experience such testing for my own satisfaction.

The blue hairs (Plato and Aristotle) knew, intuitively, of these things. Aristotle was not kind in his appraisal of music, especially for the young, if I am understanding his comments on the matter.

The next step is to find a connection between music and behavior, if there is one.

15 Check out KPM Klassics on YouTube. It's all canned music from a library for TV music from the late 60's-early 70's.

16 The proper genre, for at least two of those songs is "Italo-House" although more modern w/ it's production qualities. And I would just as well qualify them under the house umbrella. Good find Openbloger. I've been listening to EDM since 1991, and I have not come across this artist. Also good to hear new, good-quality producers.

17 New music indeed..and just in time, Look up Burgess Meridith  (Band, Austin, Tx.  Try facebook) Very good stuff.

18 I caught the live show for these kids from Texas last Saturday night and was blown away at the depth and complexity of their music.  It's the kind of magic you get when you combine talented musicians with genetic harmony.  They will be at South by Southwest in Austin next month and touring the Southeast after that.  They put on a great stage show that is fun and energetic, but still family friendly.

They have a new album out today -
Lady Made of the Stone is the first single

19 Listening to dri's musical choices, I have only one suggestion.  Ban dri.

WTF was that noise?

Posted by: Kevin at February 21, 2012 07:58 AM (3o64G)

20 Hey, have you guys ever removed your ear protection and had someone use a jackhammer to try to open up your head?

Dri's music was like that.  Just sayin'.

21 If you are into live music at all... I would highly recommend browsing archive.org. Legal, free, downloadable concerts from several hundred bands. You will most likely see some names you recognize, but most of them you won't. Like most live concert bootlegs, quality ranges from barely listenable to live in your living room. No top 40 or dance acts...but if you enjoy live music...it is worth some time to visit there. ~j
