The Sound Of Plaid episode 2014.02.24:  Special Guests IRWIN CHUSID and OTIS FODDER

This episode's very special guests are Otis Fodder (Bran Flakes) and Irwin Chusid (WFMURaymond Scott Archives) skyping in remotely to celebrate the album release of RAYMOND SCOTT REWIRED!

Three mixologists who work under group names — The Bran FlakesThe Evolution Control Committee, and Go Home Productions — were given hundreds of recordings owned by the Raymond Scott estate, spanning the 1930s to the 1980s: jazz, orchestral, electronic, experimental, studio chatter, never-heard rarities. Each chemist contributed six audio montages with new titles, and they collaborated on Scott’s signature tune “Powerhouse.”

The project, RAYMOND SCOTT REWIRED, was produced by Scott historian/archivist Irwin Chusid. Official release date is February 18 on Basta.

This collaborative mashup/remix album features 6 tracks each from The Bran Flakes, The Evolution Control Committee, and Go Home Productions created using only samples of Raymond Scott's music, from his early cartoon jazz days to his later electronic years.  On this show the makers discuss the album and we hear many of the album's 19 tracks including the joint collaboration finale of the album, Raymond Scott's classic Powerhouse.
