Episode 344 - Astral Weeks with Ryan Walsh

Recommended Posts

Musician and author Ryan Walsh of Hallelujah the Hills joins improvisers Andy Daly, Danielle Schneider, and Matt Besser for this week’s improv4humans! Ryan talks about his book Astral Weeks: A Secret History of 1968, inspiring scenes about a homeschooled music class that goes off the rails, a musical jug salesman, and a U2 imposter band. Later, we’ll hear calls to an LSD support hotline before meeting a couple of disinterested local heroes.

as a big fan of Pierre Henry's Variations Pour Une Porte Et Un Soupir (

), I'm liking where this episode is starting though I think maybe the performers are not so familiar with musique concrete (!). Still loving it though and I am absolutely going to buy this book.

 

edit: wow this is a really great one

I don't know if it's because of post-truth era disillusionment or Twin Peaks S3, but I'm enjoying this more than I expected.
