As I suspected, Salt Lake City isn’t exactly a hotbed of live experimental electronic music or industrial or breakcore. I’m sure some shows will pop up here and there occasionally that I’ll want to record. But in the meantime, I’ll continue fixing up board tapes that other people have recorded that I’ve found in various spots on the internet and shape them into something that sounds like a proper live album (like the Autechre and the Tool and the recent Noize Creator recordings that are on my Mixcloud).
It’s beyond me why so often whomever records and posts these recordings doesn’t even put in the most minimal of effort to master them or even just even out the level across the recording. They either don’t know how or are incredibly lazy.
The good news is that I’m not lazy, and I know how to do it. I already have a couple in the can that are worth posting, so I’ll post those soon, and I’ll see what other recordings I can drum up.
I’ve posted almost every recording that I’ve made myself. I still have one or two original live recordings that I’ve made in past years of some top names in noisy electronic music, and I’ve repeatedly asked those artists (via email or FB message) if they’d be cool with me posting them, but they ignore the question. So until I get an explicit yes, those will have to remain tucked away on my hard drive.
