THIS IS RADIO PIPE!

 

 

Interrupting all programmes
This is radio pipe from pirate satellite
Orbiting your living room, cashing in the bill of rights
Cuban army surplus or refusing all third lights
This is radio pipe on pirate satellite

 

This sound does not subscribe to the international plan
In the psycho shadow of the white right hand
Then that see ghettology as an urban Vietnam
Giving deadly exhibitions of murder by napalm

 

This is radio pipe tearing up the seven veils
This is radio pipe please save us, not the whales
This is radio pipe underneath a mushroom cloud
This is radio pipe, you don’t need that funeral shroud (Why play?)

 

Forces have been looting, my humanity
Curfews have been curbing the end of liberty

 

Hands of law have sorted through my identity
But now this sound is brave and wants to be free, anyway to be free

 

This is radio pipe on pirate satellite

 

This is not free Europe
Nor an armed force network
This is radio pipe using audio ammunition
This is radio pipe can we get that world to listen
This is radio pipe using aural ammunition
This is radio pipe can we get that world to listen?
This is radio pipe on pirate satellite
(This is radio pipe) Orbiting your living room cashing in the bill of rights
This is radio pipe on pirate satellite
This is radio pipe everybody hold on tight
(This is radio pipe) A-riggy diggy dig dang, dang
(This is radio pipe) Go back to urban ‘Nam

Rhizome:

Pierre Gordeeff’s The Built From Scratch Apparatus is the general title for a series of projects by Pierre Gordeeff initiated in 2006. Composed of parts salvaged from the trash, yard sales and equipment purchased from bankrupt hospitals, schools and factories, Gordeeff’s work has slowly evolved into an ornate sculpture and light show along with amplified moving parts fed into a mixer.

The Rhizome article also has some audio & video.

Built from Scratch

I found this via a circuitous vicus of information from the Facebook Weird Instrument Tribe, that also lead to more pics from Robodonien 2012 where the below pics were ganked.

Here’s an auto-translated-from-the-french article that seems to embody some of the spirit of the contraption in its irregularity. If your French is better than mine, or google’s, here’s the original.

Unless there is a super-long, and probably super-boring/annoying, remix out there, this particular transcript seems a bit… absurd:

 

Grimly fiendish plays the game that never plays
Sing out loud but never prayed
Grimly fiendish wears a coat thats black and long
He doesn’t know that it’s all wrong
Simply fiendish, a child caught in a grown up world
No lies convince the court
Once a week I could be found on the faces all the frowns
Hide and seek, tried so hard to find that crime could pay
Just for today

Let me get the story straight
You never gave me a break
It’s a case of give and take
You didn’t make me good you just painted me green
You made me part of your forgotten dream
Grimly fiendish, we’ll send you just where you belong
Where the children can’t be found

Some excerpts from Unlikely Persona: Jerry Hunt (1943-1993)

I’ll never forget the first time I saw Jerry perform. It was in 1984 at a music festival in Ohio. The curtain opened to reveal upstage a modest clump of homemade and off-the-shelf electronic instruments. Jerry appeared from behind the setup, pushed a few buttons and began the piece. The music coming from the loudspeakers was a tapestry of sampled instruments — mainly bowed strings — constantly churning out a dense micropolyphonic web based on clusters of slow and fast trills. This was accompanied by a host of high-frequency percussive sounds emphasizing rattles, sleigh bells, wind chimes and the like. Loud and unrelenting, it reminded me of a Texas insect chorus on a hot summer night.

While this was going on, Jerry paced the stage holding a variety of homemade hand props: staffs, rattles, different kinds of wands and bells. The rattles were shaken, the staffs stamped loudly on the stage. Some of the wands were quite phallic, and Jerry would make strange motions with them as though they had magical powers. Other wands looked like religious talismans created from junk: an umbrella handle that turned into a cross at the far end, or a stylized metal rod bent into the shape of an astrological symbol. Jerry took out some strange nightlights that he plugged into electrical outlets all over the stage. Later he brought out an old brown suitcase, sat on it like a child’s hobby horse, and slapped it like a bass drum using a thick wooden stick.

The performance was redolent of shamanism, as though demons were being exorcised from the auditorium. But it came from a most unlikely persona: the lanky, bald, bespectacled Jerry Hunt, wearing his trademark unironed white dress shirt, long narrow tie, off-white jacket with unbuttoned cuffs and loose fitting trousers. It was a look I call “central Texas meat inspector” — certainly not what you’d expect from a shaman. It was amusing to watch the spectacle of this mysterious ritual being performed by an utterly mundane-looking man.
