Sonic Verses

Foundscape #5  I know it's a day late but what can be done?

Listen to your neighbors.          I know two people.             A.P. Mike re: internet.     Listen!    

Tomorrow's your day.              Rhythmic breathing.


As I hope you are aware, there is a group of computer scammers from India who make calls claiming to be from Windows Computers. They try to give you instructions that will grant them access to your computer. They then lock you out and charge you to regain access.
I've been waiting for awhile to get a chance to interact with them. I kept them on the phone for approximately 14 minutes and 28 seconds.
I figured as long as I kept them on the line they couldn't target anyone else. I recorded the call and gave it my patented Fredericks treatment. At the end I've included a shortened version of the original call.


I’m Lost

Fredericks Foundscape #4.  This time I've combined the sounds of birds, my van, phone messages, air travel (including crying babies) and some IRS on-hold music.


As a fan of the surreal, I must say these are interesting times. I took sounds and voices from my everyday life and mixed them with what the media is feeding me. Combined, the result is rather nightmarish. I hope you enjoy.

The story goes...            Not trying to be a jerk.         Coming undone.      Jesus is the answer.      Will you please hang up.

I'm afraid.      It should frighten us all.     Hurt her/Don't hurt her.          Palin hip-hops.         Not gonna happen.


February caught me up short. So, this episode got a little rushed. I've tried not to pay too much attention to the competitive  interviewing process currently going on. But, I've not been having too much success, as you will hear.

Attention.     An inattentive driver reminds me of Donald Trump.          Marco Rubio removes his gloves.        Drunk Reagan.

Someone attack me please.     Magical thinking.        Competitive interviewing.                      Ted Cruz: Basket Case.      Stupid.

Donald doesn't know.      Marco does stand up.

Thanks go to Rob Lorei host of Radioactivity on WMNF (he's on every weekday at 11 AM EST.) CNN, and Youtube for the clips.


Fredericks Foundscape #3:

About the bag.     Lotta things coming into your mind, right now.        What's that smell?     Miles Davis skipping.

Imaginary Symphony and Choir.      Morning birds.      Bring me my gun.         Hello?      Miles skips out.


This is the second Fredericks Foundscape. I am hoping to make them a monthly feature. This episode features ambient sounds combined with material provided by The Free Music Archive, the presidential debates, telephone messages and my theremin.

Orwellian universe (Free Matter for the Blind Volume 4).        "Strange" Dave from Knoxville.        Martin O'Malley/Hillary Clinton: Why.

Dryer and theremin symphony.        Airport transportation.           Emergency sirens.          Ted Cruz.        

Sounds of morning birds and traffic.                I'm a maniac/I'm a fly.


Fredericks does Art Humor

Swept up in the nostalgic sentiments of the season, I revisited an old Skype chat and plucked some stuff and ran it through the remix machine.

Sarah, Kormodd, Stan, P.C. Mike, Dougald, Brian,

Happy A.P. Mike's birthday! (How happy is he?)

Wasn't really a joke.


Fear Itself

Fear, terror, phobia however you describe it seems like many people are caught up in its grip. Thanks to Trump's tongue and ISIS' actions, I haven't been able stop thinking about the effects of fear. I almost used parts of a previous podcast, but there was no need. I found fear nearly everywhere I turned.

Should we be afraid of....?     War on terror: they're doing it on purpose.       New America statistics with updates.

"Do You Understand?" featuring Alex Jones.         A new party?        

Misinformation on Parade (includes ISIS, Ebola, Jade Helm, Vaccines,  Artificial intelligence).   

The Trump solution: kill.              Maranatha.

Satan work is slick.       Simplistic  solution: Guns!        Blow up an asteroid.         Edward R. Murrow.           F.D.R.: Fear Itself.
