Dawn Chorus

Revision as of 00:20, 2 February 2013 by 173.254.216.66 (talk) (2i chavfildesinviernochav.... alas a bleep... royalbottomsup.. .. .   youdbetterpissoff&enosp;phospherousbleep)
Dawn Chorus
Running time 3:55
Appears on Geogaddi


  • Dawn Chorus is is track number 19 on the Geogaddi album. As well as birdsong at daybreak, the title also may refer to the unexplained phenomena known as electromagnetic dawn chorus which occurs during or just after sunrise effecting radio equipment with a transmission similar to birds dawn chorus.

Samples/Lyrics

  • "round the, round the, round the cauldron"(reversed, 2:00)
  • [Pete from Phaelam] suggests at around 1:40 "but you may be dead ... you may be dead".
  • A vocoded voice says "Yes." starting at 0:17 and continues through the whole song.

Comments

  • Aside from the bird-song variety that all are familiar with, there is an electromagnetic phenomenon of the same name, which occurs when the sun breaks over the horizon during a period of sunspot activity or of solar flares. At such times, those with the proper equipment can hear sounds that have been described as being like whistling, or like hundreds of birds singing at once; some have even reported hearing human voices. [anon]
  • You might like to read the description of the effect at: wikipedia. That article also has links to WAV files of the Dawn Chorus from NASA's site.
  • [J] pointed out something interesting: BoC have remixed Meat Beat Manifesto, and the MBM album "Actual Sounds and Voices" contains a very Geogaddi-sounding track called "The Tweek" (track 6). He pointed out that the beginning of the track sounds rather like the beginning of A:B::B:C, and that "a little way through the track, a conversation starts. The two men are discussing radio disturbances/anomalies", and that these are illustrated with pertinent audio samples. "At the end, there is a pause and they begin to play an extended sample of a dawn chorus" that sounds rather like chirping tree-frogs in the summer. One of the men then comments: "The dawn chorus on the other hand is not at all well understood, and there is no theory to explain it." (Actual dawn chorus samples can be heard by following the Wikipedia link given above.)
  • It is interesting to notice that the Gundestrup cauldron depicts "The horned God" Mentioned in You Could Feel the Sky And the lyrics "round the, round the, round the cauldron" can be heard in this song and that the beginning of A:B::B:C sounds similar to a bubbling cauldron.
  • Comments from the Northern Exposure interview:

"How do you create your drum patterns?"

"Sandison: It's a mixture of live performance and step sequencing. Sometimes, we make up sounds and then program them tightly in a really synthetic way. Other times, we want it to sound really rough, so we'll just jam on the drums live. For instance, "Dawn Chorus" is a single-take jammed beat that I played, while "1969" has a live beat all the way through mixed with other beat tracks."

[edit] Basic text formatting What it looks like What you type

You can italicize text by putting 2 apostrophes on each side.

3 apostrophes will bold the text.

5 apostrophes will bold and italicize the text.

(Using 4 apostrophes doesn't do anything special -- there are just ' left over ones' that are included as part of the text.)

A single newline generally has no effect on the layout. These can be used to separate sentences within a paragraph. Some editors find that this aids editing and improves the diff function (used internally to compare different versions of a page).

But an empty line starts a new paragraph.

When used in a list, a newline does affect the layout (see below).

You can break lines without a new paragraph. Please use this sparingly.

Please do not start a link or italics or bold on one line and close it on the next.

[edit] HTML tags

You can use some HTML tags too. For a list of HTML tags that are allowed, see HTML in wikitext. However, you should avoid HTML in favor of Wiki markup whenever possible.


What it looks like What you type

Put text in a typewriter font. The same font is generally used for computer code.

Strike out or underline text, or write it in small caps.

   The blockquote command will indent both margins when needed instead of the left margin only as the colon does.

Invisible comments to editors () only appear while editing the page.

   If you wish to make comments to the public, you should usually use the talk page. 


Invisible comments to editors (<!-- -->) only appear while editing the page.

[edit] Organizing your writing What it looks like What you type Section headings

Headings organize your writing into sections. The Wiki software can automatically generate a table of contents from them. Subsection

Using more equals signs creates a subsection. A smaller subsection

Don't skip levels, like from two to four equals signs.

Start with 2 equals signs not 1 because 1 creates H1 tags which should be reserved for page title.

   Unordered lists are easy to do:
       Start every line with a star.
           More stars indicate a deeper level. 
       Previous item continues. 
       A newline 
   in a list 

marks the end of the list.

   Of course you can start again.

   Numbered lists are:
       Very organized
       Easy to follow 

A newline marks the end of the list.

   New numbering starts with 1.

Here's a definition list:

Word

   Definition of the word 

A longer phrase needing definition

   Phrase defined 

A word

   Which has a definition 
   Also a second one 
   And even a third 

Begin with a semicolon. One item per line; a newline can appear before the colon, but using a space before the colon improves parsing.

   A colon (:) indents a line or paragraph. 

A newline starts a new paragraph. Often used for discussion on talk pages.

   We use 1 colon to indent once.
       We use 2 colons to indent twice.
           3 colons to indent 3 times, and so on.

You can make horizontal dividing lines (----) to separate text.

But you should usually use sections instead, so that they go in the table of contents.

You can add footnotes to sentences using the ref tag -- this is especially good for citing a source.
