These are improvised jams which we recorded live in 2009. Most effects and audio processing were done on the fly using an miked acoustic drum kit and an electric guitar running though an Ableton Live setup. The recorded improvisation sets up the basis of the tracks. We then let these recordings age for 2 years, then spent a few evenings adding some overdubs and other tweaks, and then blamo, we have an episode ready.
The idea is to work quickly and keep it close to the live jam feel. We may skip the 2 year aging process for the next episode.
In this episode, all sounds were created by James Ray Gun Justice and Joey Vapors except the last track which has some audio samples of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
The samples include:
- A recording of the feed from Honeysuckle Creek made at Goddard. Digitized by Kipp Teague (Project Apollo Archive) from a VHS copy of the original reel-to-reel tape.
- Recorded transmission of the lunar module landing courtesy of NASA.
- Exiting the lunar module clip produced by Ken Glover from files provided by John Stoll, ACR (Audio Control Room) Senior Technician at NASA Johnson.
