Episode #99 – Tutorials in Self Isolation

As a result of the enduring Covid-19 pandemic, the ticking of the clock no longer seems actual in any remote sense. We have collectively entered recursive time loops, fractals and spirals where the measurements of time; seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, etc. are little more than an afterthought. An intersection of present and future has been crossed where memories are no longer composed of fragmented pasts, but of viral futures.

This episode is a psychogeographic sonic collage composed of field recordings, original music, poetic recitations, fireside readings and found audio materials which were imagined and composed during this ever-evolving temporality of quarantine by a variety of artists and thinkers. It is a podcast composed in and for the present, wherever it can be found.

[7:41] Jesse Tinsley – Sizzling Trout Field Recording

“The following recording is of Spanish style Rainbow Trout (Trucha a la plancha) sizzling on a carbon griddle. I would devour this dish two or three times a week while living in Madrid. The open-faced and de-boned trout is sautéed in a melody of spices, including garlic, oregano, rosemary, thyme, parsley, cilantro, rock salt, green onions and olive oil. I introduced this scrumptious Spanish delight into our household shortly after the Covid-19 driven shelter-in-place initiative was put into effect in Ohio. Mary, a hardy vegan for nearly 20 years, has begrudgingly opened her stubborn palate to the creatures of the sea. First scallops, which the Vegan community regards as a plant, then salmon, shrimp and clams, etc. Crawfish and eel, however, still tend to turn her stomach. Mary has become such a fan of trucha a la plancha that we have it two or three times a week, late in the evenings, usually after a long walk in the Cleveland MetroParks or the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The crackle and fizzle of searing trout, the wind dragging off Lake Erie, the chirping birds at Cleveland’s Lakefront Nature Preserve and the running creeks along the MetroPark’s serene Buttermilk Trail  and waterfall in Willoughby, Ohio, are helping us keep our wits as we navigate the rigors of the pandemic.” – Jesse Tinsley
