“Incident At Town Lake”

(KSE #196, 3-inch CDR)

$5.00 postpaid anywhere, via  paypal to django5722(at)yahoo(dot)com

Smokey Emery is the alter-ego of Austin sound artist Daniel Hipólito, whose live manipulation of multiple vintage tape-players (with tapes containing both found material and his own musical creations) is incredibly physical (reminding me of turntable artists such as Christian Marclay) and produces amazing multi-layered drone compositions that are uniquely textured as they are tape-derived…I first saw Daniel perform at the Slow Pump dronefest last March and was blown away by the originality of his conception and the elastic drone harmonies he was able to produce in performance. Of course, there needed to be a Smokey Emery release on KSE, and Daniel was kind enough to go into the studio and produce this two-track  twenty-minute  gem that captures everything that is unique about the Smokey Emery experience. Daniel also gave a mesmerizing performance at the KSE Psychedelic Disaster Whirl and was one of the best performers at the seamless-drone evening ‘Continuance: Another Night of Sustained Tones’ in September. It’s an honor to present his work to the world outside Austin…and to remind those in Austin of what a force-of-nature we have here.

A cdr you can listen to all afternoon   …   and tomorrow. $5 ppd.

special 12-copy editions of KSE cdr’s available only at the “Psychedelic Disaster Whirl” on October 16th in Austin

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 5:40 pm

… we did at the KSE 5th Anniversary Concert in July 2011, we will again have special 12-copy editions of the KSE cdr’s from the artists performing on the bill, this time being ST 37, Book of Shadows, Smokey Emery, and Lee Dockery (the credits for the show appear on the BACK of the Emery and Dockery cdr’s, so you can’t see them here)…

these are only $5 each, for a super-rarity, and even if it wasn’t super rare, it’s experimental music of the highest order…and 100% of that money will go to the artists…so with those excellent drink specials at ND and with the reasonably priced and delicious food from Tamale Molly, you should be able to afford all four of these!!!

we’ll also have other KSE cdr’s available for only $5 each, even our full-sized cdr’s that usually sell for $7, so bring a wad of $5 bills

beyond the above cdr’s, we’ll have copies of the KSE releases from BRENT FARISS, XANTHOCEPHALUS, ERNESTO DIAZ-INFANTE, SIR PLASTIC CRIMEWAVE, MASSIMO MAGEE & TIM GREEN, and my own spoken-word poetry album “Junk Sculpture From The New Gilded Age”

no champagne on this sad anniversary

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 7:12 pm

tomorrow, the American occupation of Afghanistan will have lasted ten years…presently we’re spending $ 6.7 billion a month on the occupation, and that’s the amount that’s admitted (imagine what’s “off the books”)…future generations will look back at the occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, look at the stripping away of US health care and education and infrastructure in order to pay for these military adventures (not to mention the incredible human loss, American, Afghan, Iraqi, etc.), and it will be clear to them what were the perverse priorities of this period in America…these are sad times…

R. LEE DOCKERY & BILL SHUTE electronic music-and-poetry duo, performing at KSE “Psychedelic Disaster Whirl” 16 October at ND (Austin, TX)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 11:34 am



I’ll be performing the long-poem PLINK, PLONK & SCRATCH in the poetry-and-electronic music duo I’ll be doing with Lee Dockery at the KSE “Psychedelic Disaster Whirl” on Sun. 16 October at ND in Austin…when Sky Sunlight Saxon passed away (June 2009 in Austin), A.J. Kaufmann and I both wrote poetry chapbooks in memory of the master (AJ’s was Symbolisme Psychedelique, mine was PLINK…and if you know the origin of the phrase “plink, plonk & scratch” you are a serious free-music fan), so it seemed like the perfect piece to perform at this event…

Lee and I visited the concert venue yesterday, ND @ 501 Studios (entrance on Brushy, one block east of the I-35 Frontage Rd., between 5th and 6th St. in Austin, on the south end of the block), and it’s an awesome space with a fine stage and sound system, a massive projection screen (where Laurel Barickman will be doing her amazing projections), lots of room, some seats off to the side for those who want them, a fine bar w/ both Fireman’s 4 and Dos Equis on tap, and tamales from Tamale M0lly.

The posters are printed and are starting to go up around Austin.

Remember the line-up:


9:05 PM,  SMOKEY EMERY (Daniel Hipolito)


10:25 PM,  UNMOOR

10:55 PM,  ST 37

admission $7.00

doors open at 7:15, show at 8:00

drink specials and food from Tamale Molly, so come early and stay late!

also, great recorded music between sets from Taj Mahal Travellers, Heather Leigh, MV & EE, etc.
