Everything and Nothing / Re: Nobody Cares about your Photography!
« on: August 04, 2016, 06:08:28 PM »
when it comes to photography art it has to do much with the equipment you use.
Unlike painting etc According to me you need no artistic skill to push the photo button.
To have artistic taste is not hard.. it is not hard to edit photos afterwards etc..
so for me photographers are overrated,

If you have a mediocre camera no matter what you do and software tricks your photos will look uninteresting and mediocre.
I have never owned a system camera only point and shot and smartphone cameras.. I have used all those the full limit..
software tricks can help but you are still always limited to your camera..

If I get a good camera, I can make professional aristic photos too no problem, and if you buy me a flight ticket I can take photos of epic nature etc.
I have no problem to push the camera button it is not that hard.

Of case I am beeing little bit sarcastic here, of curse you need to know the technological basics of to set exposure and all that but the truth is also the newer cameras do more and more stuff automatic.

Meshuggah's new Album is called "violent sleep of reason". Meshuggah have been my favorite artist since 2001.
Do we have any other Meshuggah fans here ?

The new album will be kind of different I think, to begin with they did record their album in denmark instead of themselves, it was recorded the old school way with only live takes..

It will be released 7th october so the wait is soon over!

tracklist

01. Clockworks
02. Born in Dissonance
03. Monstrocity
04. By the Ton
05. Violent Sleep of Reason
06. Ivory Tower
07. Stifled
08. Nostrum
09. Our Rage Won't Die
10. Into Decay

« on: August 04, 2016, 05:57:45 PM »
How come I always see these guy with these huge modulars but they never release any actual music dispite often superior sound..
it feels like it is only a plaything for them like toys..

If I had more analouge stuff I would make good music.. but right now I have been forced to sell off my converter so I do not even have sound in my speakers anymore.. that sucks

CD out of stock
Shadow of Time
Steve Roach
2016 Projekt PRO334 (CD)
Within the 35-year orbit of Roach's relentless dedication to sonic-art as a way of life, SHADOW OF TIME marks a reconnection to the touchstone of Roach's signature sound: deep breathing atmospherics, textural healings and zen-like immersion spaces. The inner stillness and sumptuous shimmering of warm analog synthesizers slow down time and enhance the moment in ways unique to Roach's work.

In the style of classic releases STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE and QUIET MUSIC, SHADOW OF TIME's spacious expansion blooms outward in subtle dynamic momentum, a reflection of emotion and reverie within its three long tracks. This sonic sanctuary is at once amorphous and engaging. The overall effect is the appearance of soft-edged architectural forms, arising melodies drifting upon illuminated tendrils, lush chords shapeshifting in harmonic interplay as if waves swell and gently touch upon a time-suspended shore.

"The long, beatless title track is an exquisite piece of tonal twilight music. The swelling, breathing synth-harmonies are cast across a wide, uncluttered landscape, and at the center is a sense of utter calm. Like all of Roach's best meditative pieces, the silence between and around the chords is as important as the music itself." - Mike G, Ambient Music Guide

Steve reflects, "Every day holds the phenomenon of contrasting light and dark. From first dawn to the last luminous strains of day casting the transition towards night, the SHADOW OF TIME is on display for the receptive eye. In our environment this interplay of contrasts and form manifests in magnificent subtlety. This fleeting, intangible partner of illumination is a constant influence in my process, both in its evocation of emotion and activation of the mythic imagination. The music on SHADOW OF TIME is a direct expression of this awareness I am at the service of."

"This album inhabits a place I crave returning to, especially after long runs out into the world for concerts and travel. This release offers repose, a sanctuary away from today's accelerating pace of life. Over the years I consistently shift between dynamic and pure textural non-rhythmic work. In that, it's not so much a return to a specific sound as reconnecting to an elusive part of consciousness that always exists. Rather than nostalgia, it's a living flow which I draw from. At certain points in my artistic orbit, I re-enter the deeper end of this current, coming back to these inner realms and structures, accessing a dimension that feels completely congruent with my being."

"SHADOW OF TIME is a metaphor for several things. One is our years here, however long that might be. My obsession with time is a core meditation that helps birth this music. As the years cast a long shadow into life, the desire to reach deeper towards these places in between remains central in my work, with what lies just beyond the outer edges of the known and unknown. The experience of responding to these moments in the studio is the grand adventure from which my work emerges."

Antelope audio has released 4 new products

Golitiah
http://antelopeaudio.com/products/goliath/

Orion Studio
http://antelopeaudio.com/products/orion-studio/

Zen Tour
http://antelopeaudio.com/products/zen-tour/

Orion 32+
http://antelopeaudio.com/products/orion-32-plus/

They have also released 3 new clocks
But I consider their trinity level clock that is included in their products are good enough

I did recently sold my Antelope Eclipse for economical reasons and also I wanted to sell it while it did maintain its financial value.
However now I am on the hunt of n upgrade And I must say the Orion Studio seem to fit my requirements kind of good I need to do more research how it compare in the sonic department with the Eclipse and how it stand up as a monitor controller with the Eclipse.

Anyway after having the Eclipse for some years now and really like their sound and philosophy I really cant imagine choosing any other brand right now
Also the software control in their latest products are very forward thinking and impressive imo

The Zen tour looks like a very neat little package I think it blows the Avid Quartet, they are in similar price but I think the sonics are superior with the Zen Tour. I hope antelope release a smaller version of Zen tour to comete with Avid duett and also at the same price point it would be perfect to bring with your laptop, right now the price of the Zen tour is only justified if you really need and work mostly on the foot.

I had thought about buying the Antelope Pure2 first but which have alost same price but it seem you are getting a lot more with the Orion Studio, I need to research how they compare and how they compare in sound quality and as a monitor controller.

Just like reading a fortune cookie... everything is better "in bed".

Yes it is just that I cannot lay in bed 24/7.  I think most people do not have time to give full concentration to the music but using it as background audio when doing other stuff. it can make you relaxed but it does not become that powerful mindtrip

I like the artwork on this album btw... I think the music is one of his better long form releases in the recent years, but I have not been listening to it in bed yet it is usually then the music comes to life more

Interested, as always, I just hope it isn't too much of the same...

"Too much of the same" is what some people said when Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces came out, while that one actually has plenty of variation between tracks. He was in absolutely brilliant form back then. I think MC&SS set a new standard that neither Steve nor anyone else has been able to match since. But it's nice that he is going back to "purely-atmospheric" music.

I also consider  Mc  and ss his best work... Really hard to top for sure... All the stars did align  perfectly on that album.
