Sound of Black
Wed 10/1/2008 4:38PM
If black is the convergence of all color, then the 23 minutes of My Bloody Valentine feedback is the convergence of all sound.

By far the loudest show I have ever experienced, MBV droned through most of their classics at the Concourse Exhibition Center in SF last night.

But it was the insane assault of feedback, with frequency sweeps that rattled the bones in face, throat and chest and fluttered the hairs on my arms, that I'll never forget.  It was at once nauseating and reveletory.  I heard:

water rushing
people screaming
thunder clap
mushroom cloud
animals fighting
death rattle
wrecking ball
cannon fire

It was a bit of a challenge to go to such a large festival with wife, mother-in-law and two small children in tow, but we had a great time. 

Great job Kayceman, Dennis and Ari on the wrap-up.  Fantastic photos too. 

Highlights for me included seeing Devandra Banhart (shamefully for the first time) and of course Wilco, who just keep getting better.
Andrew Bird's recording tips

I just caught this post by Andrew Bird, who recently spent a few days at Wilco's "Loft" in Chicago.  Some great, candid stuff here, from the challenges of self-producing to the archaic gadgets (spinning Victorla horns) found in the Loft.  Great read if you're into recording:
