Set-up and prep

My goal is to produce sonic art that allows for a general expansion of viewpoint

--say what?

--close your eyes and listen

--what do you see?

I slowly peel back the layers-mysterious that encompass the knowledge and experience necessary to git where I'm a'wanting to go,

but then ain't that what its all about?

What do I do here at KBOO?


For my first blog entry I would like to introduce myself. My name is Sean Ongley and I've been with KBOO for about 1 and a half years. Currently I'm acting as an instructor for digital audio editing and production, talent booking, board operator, and arts reporting. My next reporting project is the Portland Jazz Festival. Recently I booked the annual Boo Bash at Holocene, 2007, and I continue finding talent for Jennifer Robin's Night of the Living Tongue experimental music/spoken word show. I got my start with Blues Fest as on site board operator for our annual remote broadcast. I was educated in audio engineering at Sound Master Audio/Video Institute in North Hollywood, 2002 under Brian Ingoldsby. But I'm also a musician studying at PSU, locally known mostly in avante-garde circles.

My Vote For Song of the Year

This is the song i nominate for best song of 2007.  Sometimes music can change the world....sometimes it can speak truth to power. You might wanna google him and check out the song itself on a variety of sites including You Tube. Have a wonderful new year and thanks for listening!

No, Surrender by Justin Currie

lyrics below:

Big Macs for the fat, lo-cal wraps for the call centre battery hens,

There's lots to do at KBOO!
