July 2011: Laughtrack MP3 Mix No. 7

Eventually, once I’ve become accustomed to some new software, I will post a continuous mix of the music I’ve been listening to the most these last few months. Until then, you’ll have to settle for a late edition of Laughtrack with a dash of basic mixing tossed in.

This one includes music from Francisco López, Tod Dockstader, and a small assortment of BBC Radiophonic Workshop composers, plus pieces and excerpts of pieces from Morton Feldman, Michael Pisaro with Taku Sugimoto, AMM, Eleh, and Jim O’Rourke with Christoph Heemann. I think everything blends and flows pretty well, even in those places where the transitions are more like running into brick walls. Francisco will startle you no matter what you do.

There’s a strong chance that I’ll be hosting a radio show on WZBC once the new semester at Boston College starts, so if that happens, the Laughtrack section of this website will revert to Laughter Radio. With any luck, I’ll be playing music for you at least every other week starting sometime in September. Here’s hoping.

Thanks for listening!
