Cold Part One

This weeks Twisted Groove was prompted by the cold weather we’ve been having this week and the start of winter. The show is kind of dreamy, kind of electronic and I believe evokes winter. I play some brand new releases and mix that with older releases. The show starts out with a track from the glorious new release from Aphex Twin. Enjoy…

Cold Part Two

GlassWorks Part Two

Castillo Beck Glass

This weeks Twisted Groove was spawned by the new Philip Glass Rework_ record. The record of reworkings was curated by Beck who was asked by Philip Glass to assemble interpreters of his music for the record. Beck collected a great roster of artist including Beck himself, Tyondai Braxton, Amon Tobin, Cornelius, Dan Deacon, Johann Johannsson, Nosaj Thing, Memory Tapes, Silver Alert, Pantha Du Prince, My Great Ghost and Peter Broderick. The idea was for the new artist influenced by Glass to reinvent his music. Glass was quoted in the New York Times “I’m interested in what happens to music when other people use it. Whereas there are composers who don’t like anyone to touch their music, I think people should because they do things I can’t think of. I’m the opposite of being possessive about a piece.” Glass’s music is very influential in the world of electronic music and I believe for the most part this record works quit well.

“Basically, Glass did with live musicians what a lot of techno and electronic-music producers ended up doing with sequencers, samplers, and other mechanical ways of ordering sound.” Pitchfork Media…

Transgalactic Electro-cellist Michael Kott Part 1

Michael Kott and I have been discussing him being on the Twisted Groove for a long time now. He is often times out of the state or out of the country touring and it’s hard for him to commit to a show. The other week I got a call from Michael wanting to do the show. So we put all previous plans for this weeks show on hold and got Michael into the studio for some live treated cello and we also preview music from his forthcoming album and some tracks from a recent live performance. Get ready for some Transgalactic Electro Groove….
