Cyclic Bits: The Raymond Scott Variations

Wednesday, May 16th, 7pm - 8pm: Special program: Cyclic Bits: The Raymond Scott Variations (by Phuj Phactory with Ergo Phizmiz)

Raymond Scott's electronic music productions from the 1950s thru the 1980s have achieved greater public recognition since the artist's death in 1994 than they did during his working life. In 1997, his 1964 infant lullabyes, Soothing Sounds for Baby, made their CD debut to wide critical acclaim. Manhattan Research, Inc., a 2-CD set of vintage Scott electronica, received an equally warm welcome upon its release in 2000.MRI's long-awaited sequel, covering the early 1960s thru the late 1970s, is planned for 2008. The as-yet untitled collection will be co-produced by Gert-Jan Blom and Jeff Winner.Ergo Phizmiz, who hosts The Phuj Phactory on WFMU radio, is editing together an hour of Scott electronica reinvented by today's DJs, mixologists, and technophiles. The program, entitled "Cyclic Bits: The Raymond Scott Variations," airs Wednesday, May 16, and will feature Frankenscott creations by:

Satanicpornocultshop - Custom Drum Destroyer remixes

One of Satanicpornocultshop destroyed the custom drum that the club owned last year. They were scolded by the owner. They troubled a lot of people on that night. The amends fee was a little sum according to the kindness of parties concerned. They composed "Custom Drum Destroyer" reflecting the next day. And, to regain the amends fee of the custom drum, this CDR is released...
However, this album is a mass of a strong sound. This is composed of not only the remix but also a wide-ranging technique like the cover and the mash up, etc by Vernon LeNoir, Necro Sand, Dag Shen Ma, orionza, Hotentot Apron, Beam Up, Beach, Invader, MC Frosen Pine and ugh. Is this acquittal? Or, is it IDM challenge in 2007?
