The recording took place at the All Western Band Review in 1977. For those who don't know, that's a high school marching band competition. Only the best high school marching bands were invited.

 

This recording took place after the competition, during the entertainment for the high school bands. It was given by a local University marching band. The marching band you just listened to, gave a roughly half hour performance for them, the equivalent of an extended half time show. That band consisted of 180 marching musicians. Most of them were the best of the best from their respective high school bands. Many had been the drum majors of their high school bands. Each person could play multiple instruments. Most were also in the orchestra.

 

That was the Big Brown Music Machine, during one of the best performances ever recorded. Cal State University Long Beach held the reputation for being the absolute best music program in the state for a very long time. To my knowledge, that is one of the only existing recordings, with yours truly as one of the musicians. It still sends chills up my spine to listen to it. And that was recorded some 37 years ago.

 

Yeah, USC got a lot of press, but that's only because it was USC. Long Beach could blow them away, and they knew it. Yeah, USC got to play Tusk with Fleetwood Mac. I invite you to listen to those guys play, then go back and listen to our Rocky Fanfare again. You can judge for yourself who the better band was.

 

I was reffering to the music reproduced by entierly mechanical devices - most instruments, particularly acoustic ones, are of course macanical devices.

 

But I really  enjoyed both performances; being from Europe, I heard (of) them for the very first time. Both are reather poorly recorded, but playing of the Long Beach is WAAAY better. I can only *imagine* what sentimental value must a memory like this have to you. Well done, Sir !

I meant better recorded. I do think 4 is a better album and "physical graffiti" is there best. I dunno if I agree with "immigrant song" being their best song. I never really liked that song for some reason

Daniel Wohl & TRANSIT - Corps Exquis

https://danielwohl.bandcamp.com/album/corps-exquis

 

Acclaimed as one of the young artists “shaping our contemporary music scene and defining what it means to be a composer in the 21st century” (NPR) and heralded for his ability to “blur the line between electronic and acoustic instrumentation and seemingly melt both elements into a greater organic whole” (WNYC), Paris-born Daniel Wohl creates a remarkable hybrid of music that is part-mechanical and part-organic on the aptly titled Corps Exquis — a French term that translates in English as “Exquisite Body.” Instead of exploring the gap between his classical composition background and his collaborations within the ever-evolving electronic music scene (recently with Laurel Halo and Julia Holter at the Ecstatic Music Festival), Wohl strives to close it. Wohl’s music is performed by acclaimed new music quintet TRANSIT on the disc, and features guest performances by Aaron Roche, Julia Holter and So Percussion. 

The album’s striking electronic elements are derived directly from Wohl’s processing of the virtuosic ensemble’s acoustic instruments (piano, violin, cello, clarinet and percussion). On the track “Ouverture”, Wohl processes the resonance from a bell hit and extends it to form the underlying electronic texture; on “Limbs”, the original acoustic piano plays in perfect unison with an electrified and transformed version of itself. The result is a dynamic and emotionally charged work in which the acoustic and electronic sounds seamlessly intertwine to the point of becoming one. 

On the album’s opener, “Neighborhood”, an isolated-feeling soundscape, pulses with electronic and acoustic percussion, at times swollen with lush strings and technicolor euphoria with help from So Percussion. Cello and distorted organs vibrate in unison on “323″ as jangly percussion, found sounds, and vocals (Aaron Roche) bound, and on “Plus ou Moins”, gentle piano is met with twists and turns of countermelody. Easy, poignant vocals (Julia Holter) blend with a melancholic strings, percussion, piano and bass clarinet on “Corpus”, bringing the album to a wistful close.
