MPRNTBL and Glenn Bach

Glenn Bach

Since 1993, WMSE’s Alternating Currents program [Sundays, 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.] has been adding a bit of the experimental and avant garde into our listener’s musical world, with host Hal Rammel exploring the realms of 20th century experimental music: as he says, “from electronic and acoustic, composed and improvised, from high tech to ad hoc, from analog to digital”, Alternating Currents acts as a “weekly search for the needle of creative music in the haystack of 21st century radio”. The Alternating Currents Live concert series has been running since 1995 and is co-produced by WMSE and hosted by Woodland Pattern Book Center (720 E. Locust). Each performance is recorded for broadcast on WMSE on Sundays, between the hours of 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. One particular and special performance involving former local Glenn Bach and the very creative Milwaukee Laptop Orchestra is available to listen to for free. Hal Rammel gives us the scoop:

“Former Milwaukee musician Glenn Bach has posted on his online music label, MPRNTBL (pronounced “imprintable”) one of our Alternating Currents Live concert recordings:  “Live at Woodland Pattern” (click link to listen) features a recording of a live performance by the amazing Milwaukee Laptop Orchestra (MiLO)  recording in May of 2009.  Bach was part of the ensemble while he was in Milwaukee teaching [media arts and audio] at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.” Stay tuned to WMSE and check out Sonic Diet for more info on upcoming Alternating Currents programs.
