SPOKEN WORD WITH ELECTRONICS #24: How Much Electricity Can Kill You? https://soundcloud.com/eptc/sets/spoken-word-with-electronics-episode-24 Greetings, everyone. Welcome back to the show. This week, survival and home safety is on our mind, and the discussion is on THE FATAL CURRENT! (Including this article from 1966, slinked below, which advises you to not wear wet shoes, or a soaking wet robe, when working near electricity) There's a lot of misconceptions about how electricity becomes deadly. Appliances around the house are JUST as dangerous, or SAFE, as large electrical sources. For example, a static shock can be thousands of VOLTS but lacks the CURRENT to kill you. So we discuss the difference between voltage and current, the fun rule about how your hands can complete a circuit across your heart (don't try it) and include a basic primer on Ohm's Law. A fun discussion, including my own electrical injury at age ten, which nearly became a cautionary tale, titled: "Death By Alarm Clock".

SPOKEN WORD WITH ELECTRONICS #23: 1980s Telephone Voting Hardware Greetings everyone, welcome back to the show. This week we look back at telephone polling hardware from the 1980s and ask the question: "What if they'd evolved into how we vote in elections?" The technology for phone voting became pretty robust, including synthesized voices and other nice ideas. But nice ideas are quickly exploited, so it got quickly monetized into the foul world of 1-900 numbers. The monetization of spending 50¢ to call a 1-900 number and leave an opinion destroyed public perception of the phone as a democratic tool, but before that happened there were a few wonderful innovations. Bell Labs had been working on voice recognition since the 1950s, for example, and this week's episode of SWWE focuses on one company's effort to develop two devices: The simply named TELEPHONE POLL from 1982 and the exotic named follow-up, the ESCAPE-600, from 1986. Here is a collection of brochures and other material on both the TELEPHONE POLL and the ESCAPE-600: http://www.ep.tc/telephone-voting We also discuss the September 15th "Burn Your Mask" day, which Media Matters has chronicled here in full idiocy: https://www.mediamatters.org/coronavirus-covid-19/facebook-allowing-campaign-ditch-face-masks-en-masse-spread https://soundcloud.com/eptc/sets/spoken-word-with-electronics-episode-23

Episode 22, Introduction/Live Set: "Hi, Everybody. This Episode Will Be About Meditation."
00:48:09
Greetings, all. Welcome back to the show. This week, the discussion is on meditation and making our body into a conductive circuit. A meditation device called the SOMA Quantum Ocean arrived from Russia last month. It's an experimental device from Moscow that has four coin-shaped sensor pads. The device arrives with a book (also downloadable here as the "QO Book") of exercises to perform while you are meditating. This list of exercises suggest thinking different things or focusing on different goals when in session with the device, and seeing if the sounds change. They might! This episode of SWWE includes a demo of twenty minutes of Quantum Ocean sound, along with instructions from the first session, which asks you to identify one path of noise in the chaos of the audio and follow it as it moves within the sea of other noises. Two of the pads send a small amount of voltage through your body, and two of the pads are radio receivers. Essentially this is similar to a feedback loop, using your body to complete a signal path. This is a barely detectable amount of voltage but it's enough to be perceived. To test this, another SOMA device, the ETHER, is used in the demo. At about 9:00 of the demo track, you'll hear the Ether interpret the Ocean. Chaos Theory, Experimental Circuit Electricity, Shamanistic Psychology, and Russian Mind Research aside, the Quantum Ocean plays a saturating and pleasing stereo noise field of noise. The QO receivers interpret all sorts of interference, including whatever transmission your body's electrical pulse produces through this contacts, and it blends into the audio you hear in the headphones. There are few products that think about thought or noise in this way. It's a fascinating, mentally liberating, and optimistic device. https://soundcloud.com/eptc/sets/spoken-word-with-electronics-episode-22

Hello, all: I hope you've been well - Sorry I haven't kept up with posting, as I mentioned I'd intended to do while taking a break from the show. Gearing up to start new episodes in a week. I have a new piece I'll be serializing with these new sets of episodes. The story is called "The Recovery of Charlie Pickle", and here is the first installment, titled "Welcome to Clarence TX". Thanks for following the show and see you soon, Ethan

00:22:48
SPOKEN WORD WITH ELECTRONICS #20: A Tribute to Anne Sexton Greetings, all. This is the final set of SWWE for a few weeks. This has been a crazy experience to put together an hour-long show every week for around twenty episodes, and I need a little time off to regroup, record some new music, and write out a few other pieces. This final episode catches me up, personally, with posting a bunch of work, too. Much of this show originated as a proposed album series on writers I love. It became a weekly show, partly out of Covid changing my focus and time. But there have been a number of writers I love included here from those earliest recordings: from David Berman, Henry Miller, Kathy Acker, e.e. cummings, Paul Krassner, and even performers like Mel Blanc or Belle Barth. The final piece from those original set of music are two tracks I'm posting today. It's a tribute to Anne Sexton, and I suppose a subheading could be "Romancing our worst intentions". — I think about Anne Sexton a lot. I think about her from her work, which has an indelible effect on anyone who ever reads it, to the final beautiful book title, "The Awful Rowing Toward God", and to her poised and amazing speaking voice. Few poets speak their work as well as Anne Sexton, which I think you'll hear in the two tribute pieces in the playlist. I think about taking care of ourselves this challenging year, too. If you have people that matter in your life, tell them. And if you're feeling worried about your own health or happiness, mention it to others, anonymously or directly, too. The talking cure is real, either clinically or with a friend. Be well, and, to quote Sexton, "Live Now". Life is an amazing experience, both dark and bright moments included.

Episode #19, Introduction, "Odd Times, Making the Room Into a Loud Scream"
00:05:58
SPOKEN WORD WITH ELECTRONICS #19: Odd Times, Loud Noises Hi everyone, welcome back to the show. Pictured in the Boing Boing post week is my studio, or the main corner of it. A lot of wonderful noise makers in the room, and the stress of this year has finally started to hit me. A room of equipment like this is very good for moments like this. So this week is about making as loud a noise as possible. Jump in for a fun ride as we turn the studio into the tornado of sound, with leading contributions from Metasonix, Soma Labs Lyra-8 and Pulsar 23, Moog, and Dave Smith and Tom Oberheim's collaboration, the OB-6. Lead vocals by the Landscape HC-TT, a manually controlled tape player. I purposely decided to make these beautiful instruments into as noisy and obnoxious a set of sounds as possible. I think you'll enjoy the stress relieving sound of a thousand oscillators out of tune with one another, going off like 700 springs clanging out of a mattress. Or at least that was the working idea. Really, just a head-cleaner. I call it: My Tribute to July, 2020. Thanks as always, and be well. Stay proud and keep it loud! - EP

00:42:18
SPOKEN WORD WITH ELECTRONICS #18: The Calendar Act of 1750 & The Fake or Real Calendar RIOTS of 1752 Often Feel Like You're Missing Eleven Days From Your Life? Blame the British Empire for The Calendar Act of 1750. Hi, everyone - Welcome back to the show. This week, the topic is on Time Keeping, and asks: What's your favorite Riot? My favorite riot is mythically referred to as "The Calendar Riots". It was a reaction across the British Empire for a government theft of eleven days from September 1752. Specifically September 2nd would immediately be followed by September 14th, with September 3rd-13th deleted. People stormed through villages demanding these stolen eleven days, and the possible loss of experiences, be returned. Some say the riots didn't happen, and I think that makes the riots even better. You can't control an invisible riot, and a riot that never happened is one that never stops. As to why, The British were one of few standouts on shifting from the flawed Julian Calendar to the more accurate but less pagan Gregorian one. The solution on shifting to the Gregorian was sloppy. The Calendar Act is an interesting moment at controlling a population through decrees. Jump into our Time Capsule and bounce back to 1752. Hear an actual Riot Act declared, and consider The Calendar Act in modern times as a new effort for Time Made Great Again by the Trump Administration. "Clock, You're Up!" In this era of Covid, "Give Us Our Eleven Days" sounds resonant. I'm wondering if "Give Us Our Eleven Months" might catch on. Connect with SWWE via British Decree on Bandcamp, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Podcast Republic, and Google Play. Thanks and be well - Today or eleven days ago today, Ethan Full notes: https://boingboing.net/2020/07/13/often-feel-like-youre-missin.html

Episode 17, Introduction, "Finding Sanity in Eraserhead and 2001 Sound Design"
00:15:14
SPOKEN WORD WITH ELECTRONICS #17: Sound Design Tutorial for ERASERHEAD and 2001: A Space Odyssey Hi, everyone - Welcome to back to the show. This week is all about noise. Noise in a home can be a disruption, like when an air conditioner cranks on suddenly; that's a common disruptive noise source. But noise in a sculpted sense can add a second layer to your home and help transport a space. Two of my favorite examples of this are the inventions of sound design found in Eraserhead and 2001: A Space Odyssey. Both of these films use noise as an core part to the world they present. So for this week's episode, I thought it'd be nice to use only the technology available to Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch at the time of their films to recreate those sonic atmospheres. So this week you'll learn how to use noise to modify your home, including a tutorial on how to make your kitchen sound like a room from Eraserhead or turn your attic into a control center from 2001: A Space Odyssey. It turns out limiting the techniques and tools to those eras is not very restrictive. Both Kubrick and Lynch had some of the finest gear in history to work with. It's my guess that they both used noise generators along with a 907 or 914 Moog Fixed Filter Bank. We'll use an inductor based 907A FFB to replicate the steps involved in The Lady in the Radiator scene and get a nice space sound aboard Discover One on your trip to Jupiter. Both of these films use a variety of colors of noise, so to best understand this, track two discussed the Colors of Noise. A tutorial on using noise color to achieve these moods is included in track three. My studio has a good variety of colored noise generators and even includes a Scat Talker from Synthetic Sound Labs, which includes a Votrax SC-01 chip for speech synthesis. Using the Scat Talker, I've included a song of Daisy, just like in 2001. (That's blue and purple noise, incidentally) In terms of making your own home into either of these worlds, you can do this with digital noise generators. I regret the app I refer to in this week's recording, called "Noises" no longer seems available on the Apple Store (my apologies, it's perfect) but this online noise generator should work nicely: https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/whiteNoiseGenerator.php If you'd like to follow some of the steps discussed, you can get very close with the FFB included in the Moog Model 15 app, as well. Sides A and B this week conclude The Apartment, which is now available on Bandcamp as a complete album. You'll also find episodes one through ten there if you'd like to download a Road Trip pack to support the show. Thanks and a good radiator to all of you from my Jupiter-bound space helmet, Ethan

Four Minutes with the SOMA Pulsar-23 Drum Machine (Serial #11, Direct Line Out, No Patch Cables)
00:04:20
Just arrived this morning. Over the moon. This thing is serious. No psychedelic required! It's like having a small David Cronenberg creature, living and talking, on tap in the living room. Here's four minutes with no patch cables. Ending moment just shows a few drum hits to isolate sounds for those curious. This is a very flexible and amazing device. I seriously have no idea how the planet is going to spend the next 20 years getting to fully understand all you can do with one of these. Very fun time to be alive.
