Show info posted by the Host: SoLoDiNo - Sound Design, Music in the Moment, and Live Sampling with Dino J.A. Deane ... more
Dino J.A. Deane is multi-instrumentalist, sound designer, and conductor.
Over a career spanning four decades multi-instrumentalist, sound-designer, conductor Dino J.A. Deane has demonstrated a unique and innovative approach to the world of music.
Deane pioneered the use of live-electronics in Indoor Life a popular art/punk band from San Francisco during the early 1980's.
There he played trombone controlled synthesizer that emulated the sound of an electric guitar and employed a tape-echo to create in the moment loops. Soon afterwards he was touring the world as the electro-acoustic live-sampling percussionist with Jon Hassell.
That collaboration resulted in the ground breaking Power Spot recording for ECM in 1986, produced by Brian Eno & Daniel Lanois. During that same period Deane became a close collaborator in Butch Morris's real-time composition creations called Conductions and in 1995 co-produced Morris's epic 10 CD box set Testament for New World Records.
Deane coined the term live-sampling, which means to record members of the ensemble while in performance, manipulate the sound and play back the recorded audio as part of the piece, all in real time.
He is considered a master in this field of performance.

Show info posted by the Host: Blues from Deb Stafford & The State of Affairs ... more
After studying voice classically at CU Boulder, and deciding to the dismay of her instructors that she would rather pursue Jazz music, Deborah Stafford joined a Big Band as their singer.
Next she created her own Jazz Quartet in an effort to expand her repertoire, which naturally lead her to the Blues. (Blues being the origin of Jazz). She began hanging around at Blues Jams and soon a new band called the The Immortal Blues Ambassadors asked her to be their singer.
The more she sang Blues the more she loved it. When the BA's broke up, she created Stone Soup, a funky blues and soul band that played together for 5 years.
But still she dreamed of competing in Memphis and decided this year to create the IBC band of her dreams. Thus Deborah Stafford & The State of Affairs was born, the product of much love and heartache over many years, as a good blues band should be.

"We dig up our songs under a dead tree with a bent rusty fork, we are fluid harmonies over tumultuous verse, an incubation of memory and long-forgotten melody, we are a moonlit walk with rabid hounds, we are whispered schemes in a self-made typhoon, we are an able choir singing saucy limericks..."
