Michael Vincent Waller - A Stream of Conciousness (January 2020)
Michael Vincent Waller is an American composer based in New York. Some describe them as one of the most interesting composing of the big city, and we surely agree. His music has been described as lyrical and introspective, drawing inspiration from impressionism, post-minimalism and world music. There’s a melancholic longing quite unique in his sound.A student of names such as minimalist legend La Monte Young, Bunita Marcus, and Elizabeth Hoffman influenced, Waller compositions are suffused with an avant-garde essence of enthralling beauty.Waller's most recent publication, Moments (Unseen Worlds, 2019 is a collection of minimalist pieces performed solo by pianist R. Andrew Lee and vibraphonist William Winant. The piano pieces bring memories of Satie gravitating between softness and more dramatic tones. The album draws on Western classical music tradition in its most archetypal forms through its use of modal melodies, triadic harmonies and metered rhythms. Yet the emotional heart of the music is not in attack, but resonance. The afterlife of sounds. Those elements that can’t be grasped and placed into easy historical categories. Behind his surface attacks, Waller finds hazy, edgeless zones that draw us downwards, into introspection – an “inward gaze.For this mix Waller has prepared as pretty fluid stream of consciousness, starting with the austere and contemplative, building to the dense and dark electronic, blurring into jazz, funk, hip/hop -- then shifting suddenly back to hardcore dark chamber music, which smoothes out to drones, and finally emotive piano music.... (then a reprieve, coda / tour-de-force outro).TracklistBunita Marcus - SoloLuigi Nono - Omaggio a Gyorgy KurtagElaine Radigue - NaldjorlakDeep Listening Band - Cave Water (Troglodyte's Delight)Linda Caitlin Smith - Far From ShoreZbigniew Karkowski - ElectrostaticsIannis Zenakis - S.709Miles Davis - Savad (Live in Switzerland, 10/22/71)Fela Kuti - Expensive ShitMississippi Fred McDowell - Shake 'Em On DownGZA - 4th ChamberKarlheinz Stockhausen - Trans (Abschnitt 1)Jlin - Unknown TonguesMorton Feldman - Turfan FragmentsPhill Niblock - Hurdy HurryPeter Garland - Nostalgia for a Southern CrossMichael Pisaro - AkasaYoung Thug - CheckMichael Vincent Waller - Love IV.

Michael Vincent, hunting and the Berne Conservation Club
The Enterprise — Marcello IaiaMichael Vincent talks turkey for our Thanksgiving podcast. Here, he sounds a turkey call he made himself. He shares memories of hunting all the way back to his boyhood on his grandparents’ farm on Pleasant Valley Road in Knox. There, he hunted on the land for food which they ate. He also shot woodchucks for safety on the farm, preventing holes that could blow tractor tires or break legs. He was proud of the woodchucks he shot, and hung them on the fence stakes to show off. A city visitor saw them and offered Vincent 25 cents for every woodchuck he shot and cleaned. Vincent lives now in Berne and has been a member of the Berne Conservation Club since his youth. The club was founded in 1932 and is in need of new members. Vincent talks of the camaraderie that club members have with each other and with members of other gun clubs against whom they compete at trap or skeet shooting. He shares trophies he’s won and also tells of a famous Berne native, Captain Adam Henry Bogardus, who became a world wing-shot champion and traveled with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show.
