Johan Amadeus Myjetski: it's taken about a year longer than i thought it would, but i should have a boutique version of my studio set up in the next few weeks.

DJTweeny: Yeah, sounds great Johan :-)

||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 8 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.

Cat: https://www.broadwayworld.com/bwwtv/article/PBS-to-Premiere-Eugene-Jareckis-THE-KING-About-Elvis-and-America-20181219
Cat: Makes Memphis sound like the music capital of the world.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : It was, at one time. But by the time i moved there in 72, it was nearly all dead. Stax was gone. Only Ardent studios was the only serious studio left.
Cat: Never came back?
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : When they renovated Beale street in the mid 90s, it came back a little bit. But not the originality that was almost a trademark earlier. Sun studios is a tourist stop now. Beale is a tourist stop. Serious original music, not much!
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : There’s more going on musically in Asheville, NC than Memphis.
Cat: Are there music centers anymore? Or is everything deceltralized via youtube, etc.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : Scotty Moore came to hear me play in Memphis in 93
Cat: That must have been an honour.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : Asheville is as close to a music center as i have seen in a long while.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : Every genre of music is in asheville, electronic, bluegrass, prog tribute bands, ambient, straight ahead rock, you name it
Cat: There was an SF sound, the Dead perhaps it smost famous exports. LA had Laurel Canyon, the Doors and others. Seattle. Other US cities.
Cat: When I lived in LA, my favourite groups were Sweetwater and Spirit.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : sound, for sure.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : There was a Memphis sound, for sure, kind of gritty. Sprinkle a little delta dirt over the reels as they turn in the studio.
Cat: It was in the right place and the right time.

llanwydd: Oh of Course!I didnt remember your play was set in Frisco
Cat: all 3 acts, starting with the 06 quake, then proctor and bergman dodging bullets and then the island city of the far future.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski : Dodging bullets sounds too real
Cat: Phil centres his autobiography on that incident.
