iHearIC Radio - Episode 11: February Concert Preview (02/11/2018)

Carlos is back as a regular co-host! We organize the concerts together so it makes sense for him to join me in the studio too. This episode starts out with a preview of our upcoming concert (Feb. 23, 8pm, High Ground Cafe) and then moves on into a smattering of different selections. NO radio show next Sunday as I am spending the week in Texas. Next episode will air on Feb 25 - time TBA as I'll be at the Béla Fleck concert at our regular time. Keep an eye on our social media for schedule changes.

Here's the current plan for this season of concerts:
February 23, 8PM at The High Ground Cafe (https://www.facebook.com/events/142582209770294/)
March 30, 8PM at The Java House (Downtown)
April 20, 8PM at The High Ground Cafe
May 5, time TBA, exact outdoor location TBA

Come to one of the Dancers in Company performances featuring music by Justin Comer and Jason Palamara: https://www.facebook.com/events/231939307332010/

iHearIC Radio - Episode 10 with Carlos Cotallo Solares and Will Yager (02/04/2018)

I (Justin) am back in town so I recorded a show with iHearIC co-host Carlos Cotallo Solares and our bass-playing pal Will Yager. We listened to some of their recordings and discussed improvisation, which seems to be a recurring subject on this show (check out the Christine Burke interview on episode 8). We talked about twitter a lot in this one, so be sure to follow us: @ihearic, @justinkcomer, @willyager. Tweet a bunch of hashtags that are too long at us.

Here's the current plan for this season of concerts:
February 23, 8PM at The High Ground Cafe
March 30, 8PM at The Java House (Downtown)
April 20, 8PM at The High Ground Cafe
May 5, time TBA, exact outdoor location TBA

iHearIC Radio - Episode 9: January Concert Recap (01/21/2018)

We are officially back from winter break! This show is a recap of Friday night's concert at The Mill. I (Justin) was sadly not able to attend the concert due to my currently massive pile of conflicting commitments, so it was a real treat to edit the video and audio for this one.

Speaking of video, here's a youtube playlist of everyone's full set: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ndbf5y2y3fI&list=PLGA6kZJDK6qRGjI0eaFw1QuGriqfiuNwY

No radio show next Sunday. I'll be performing with Jason Palamara at Butler University in an electronic music concert at 7:30pm, if you happen to be paying attention to this show from Indianapolis for whatever reason. Jason and his wife Lori are also in the process of having their fourth child as I type this! Welcome to the world, new Palamara!

Carlos and I are finishing up the details for the rest of this season of concerts. Here's the current plan:
February 23, 8PM at The High Ground Cafe
March 30, 8PM at The Java House (Downtown)
April 20, 8PM at The High Ground Cafe
May 5, time TBA, Iowa City Pedestrian Mall (more details soon...)

Next radio show will be February 4th, hopefully with a new guest!

Oh yeah, we're in iTunes and Google Play now, so subscribe there if you're into that.

iHearIC Radio - Episode 8 with Christine Burke (01/06/2018)

At the end of episode 7, I said we'd be doing a show with Christine Burke the following week. Well, that didn't happen due to changing building hours for the University's winter break. So, working around an altered schedule and my holiday-related productivity slump, Christine and I found time to meet up and record a show! We discussed a little bit about Christine's musical background, improvisation, and a little tiny bit about electronics in music. As it turns out, radio is a lot more fun when you're not recording alone, so Christine will most likely be returning to the show sometime in the next few months!

The show will be hibernating for another couple weeks now. Let's say (tentatively) we'll be back on the air January 21st. Before that, come check out our next concert on January 19th at The Mill at 8pm!

Interspersed with our discussion segments was music by:
Christine Burke (of course - website / soundcloud)
Jason Palamara (website / bandcamp / soundcloud)
Emery Clair Comer Hart (Justin K Comer / bandcamp)

iHearIC Radio - Episode 7 (12/10/2017)

Episode 7! Aired about 2 hours late on KRUI. I'm a busy guy, okay?! I can't always make it to the studio at 7! Mostly a recap of Friday's concert at High Ground Cafe, which was our last live show of 2017.

I closed the show with new tracks from friends of the show, Joe Sorensen and jason palamara. Look out for Joe's new album early next year, and check out jason's new album [bornwith 2brains] at jasonpalamara.bandcamp.com.

Next week will be back to the normal 7pm Central broadcast time for the very first iHearIC Radio interview with Christine Burke! Then a couple weeks off for the holidays.
