cv313 - analogue oceans

Reminds me to Thomas Brinkmann's Concept Remixes that is more minimalistic.

Another gem:

Have you already tried an external harddisc adapter?

We already fixed a similiar problem where the repair shop said the disc was physically damaged.

I am so very sorry for you. This is the badest thing could happen.
Especially the lost of recordings for works in process and upcoming releases!

I mostly backup every project right in time.
Also I have several testrecordings on different computers in the house.

Try SSD Anthony.

Keeper of my records : )

Nice tip on Foghorn / The Afterglow. That was pretty neat.

Good to hear it resonated to you.

Will do !

Glad you both like it ! Especially the first track that pours on me.
There is also a Technoid album on his site that I would recommend.

Anthony this reminds me to the last lines from a poem by Carlos Montameyor from "Los poemas de Tsin Pau"

            I no longer know what to think.
            I do not know if the night sky is an image
            of what one day I will become,
            or of what I might already be.

Though this is a bit offtopic.

It is rainy today Andy and I took photos !

Music from vinyl creates real waves. Digital music consists of bits and bytes. Bits and bytes cannot simulate real vibrations.
Depending on the recording resolution they generate artefacts. Digital cannot replace real waves. It comes close but it is not the same.

There is simply no need to argument about pro and contra. We collect music and we stream it. We all enjoy music and we connect through it. To share some insights about everyones own experiences and preferences does not mean that we disagree. We just enjoy different pathes and different views.

Yes Pete ! Thinking also of the effects sun activity and cell towers have on people and animals. I knew of a cat who lost hair on the side on which she used to sit at the window after they built a cell tower in the near of the house.

How many satellites orbiting Earth?

Today I asked this question and I found answers. You may know about space debris and I assumed we have lots of metal in our orbit. I never dreamed we had that much.

We have nearly 20.000 satellites in orbit ! (Credit to AGI)

Here is the cool satellite viewer:

There are estimated to be over 170 million pieces of debris smaller than 1 cm (0.39 in) as of July 2013. There are approximately 670,000 pieces from one to ten cm. The current count of large debris (defined as 10 cm across or larger) is 29,000. The technical measurement cutoff is c. 3 mm (0.12 in). Over 98 percent of the 1,900 tons of debris in low Earth orbit (as of 2002) was accounted for by about 1,500 objects, each over 100 kg (220 lb). Total mass is mostly constant despite addition of many smaller objects, since they reenter the atmosphere sooner. Using a 2008 figure of 8,500 known items, it is estimated at 5,500 t (12,100,000 lb).

Maybe some of you know the intro for the film "Contact" ?

Satellites, cell towers, radio, these all create our enviroments here on Earth.

Night Train to Lisbon  --  Not read the book, but the movie was excellent.

I've taken the night train from Paris to Lisbon.
That was one long train ride.

Anthony:  I can recommend the book, it has a very poetic depth and a very own imagination from the words.
Lisbon is a mystic, old and in parts very abandoned city. I guess you loved the city when your arrived there.

I now start reading a new book: "Das Buch der Unruhe" (The Book of Disquiet) by Fernando Pessoa. From the first reading yesterday I will love it.
It plays in Lisbon like another favorite book of mine "Nachtzug nach Lissabon" (Night Train to Lisbon) by Pascal Mercier.
