The Reality Report: Episode 56

Episode 56

The ninth of eleven episodes in which Miriam returns to ramble with me on my mind map. The six topics we randomly generated this time were left- and right-handedness, "cultural self-harm", fractality in nature, MK Ultra, ley lines and Conlon Nancarrow.

We finish up talking about non-scientific belief systems acknowledging gods, saints, ancestors, "little people", etc., then suddenly switch to Conlon Nancarrow, the 20th century avant garde composer. This leads on to a discussion of the evolution of drum'n'bass and the emergence of acts like Squarepusher and Venetian Snares, and a more general consideration of how technology can drive musical innovation.
