[quote author=Bill Binkelman link=topic=921.msg7310#msg7310 date=1217518081Yeah...it's weird. Backroads was there at the beginning for me...mid 80s, when I (with Barbara, my first wife's help) discovered Musical Starstreams. Lloyd advertised on the show.  :'(
[/quote] Yeah, that's when I started dealing with him. After listening to Musical Starstreams, and wondering, "where can I get some of this music"?    Harry

Hope you guys are listening to some guqin music!!

  I am! I am! That is amazing. A 1000 year old instrument. I have a 1973 Lincoln Les Paul copy that I bought new, and I think that it is an antique!  ;)  This is really refreshing, stimulating music.     Harry

Finally got around to listening to this. Very good show! Any chance of releasing this? Possibly a free download? "Hint, hint"  ;)    Harry

I downloaded and listened to this today, as well. It really is good. I look forward to listening again tomorrow. Thanks for the pointer.    Harry

You could say that's simply his style, but it would be very interesting if he could make something a bit more dry, gritty, noisy, low-fi sounding some time... to create different moods and atmospheres....something you wouldn't instantly recognize as that Steve Roach sound.

      I  agree! I want more "Possible Planet" kind of stuff.     Harry

Now Playing / Re: Currently listening, part 1

I started on a Jade Warrior binge yesterday and have continued some today. I go through periods where I listen to them a lot and then put them aside for long periods. Today I have been listening to some of their later albums like Horizen, At Peace, Breathing the Storm, Distant Echoes and Eclipse. I think they are a terribly underrated band that put out some unique pieces. I don't really know how to classify them. They have a new release called Now which is due out soon. More info on them at  http://www.jadewarrior.com/mainsml1.html       Harry

I have to agree with everything written above. Outfolding was, also the first album I bought of Saul's and it was my first Hypnos purchase years ago. This led me to buy every release of Saul's I could find and am still buying everyting he puts out. This was what also got me interested in the Hypnos forum. I can't wait for Villa Galaxia to come out.      Harry

Glad you had a good birthday, Mike. The beach sounds nice and it's probably not 100' there like it is here. Looks like there are a bunch of 50 year olds on this list. If any of you kids want to earn some extra spending money this summer, I could use someone to mow my lawn. ;) It's too hot for me.   Harry

Every time we get a good rain here in San Antonio, I go out and listen to the frogs and think , I need to record this. I never do. You guys have inspired me with your recordings. Next time it rains here, if it ever does again, I am going to record me some dadgum frogs.  ;D     Thanks,   Harry

Well said, Jason!!

18 words a minute with only one error!!!  I did have to stop for a short time, though, as I was afraid the keyboard might overheat.  ;)     Harry

I have to agree with Antdude. I wish I could get everything ambient from Hypnos. There are other labels that do a good job. but none give the service that I get from Hypnos. Whenever I see something that looks interesting to me, I always do a search at the Hypnos store to see if I can get it there first. Lena and Mike do a great job. [End of advertisement ;) ]     Harry

  Environmentalism is treated as the most deranged, anti-business, anti-social kind of sociopathic craziness possible.  I'm not exactly a Greenpeace or Sierra Club member, but this still kind of bugs me.
                                                                                                                       I couldn't agree more. I am a pretty politically conservative person, but I have always considered myself an environmentalist. I come from a family of ranchers/farmers who are very environmentally focused. After all, their living comes from the environment. I feel that the term environmentalist has been hijacked, so to speak, by some radicals which makes the rest of us a little uncomfortable with the label. We have to protect what we have and should do so passionately, but extremism seldom helps win people over. Just my $.02 .    Harry

Anyone read or have any thoughts on David Toop's "Haunted Weather".  I just started it today and find myself only able to read small portions at a sitting. I had the same trouble with his "Oceans of Sound". There is so much information and so many names I have to stop after a brief read just to try and absorb what I have read. If I don't, I find myself just reading words and not absorbing much. It took me almost 6 months to finish "Oceans of Sound" and I'm not sure I'm up for a long read like that right now. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy Oceans... , it just wasn't easy. Not that I expect all of my reads to be easy, but I guess I'm trying to psych myself up to commit to it.  :-\

« on: April 03, 2008, 09:10:41 PM »
I,too, am ignorant of different systems of gamelan. I do enjoy it when I hear it, though. It is definitely a music to get lost in. This week I have been listening a lot to Loren Nerell's "Lilin Dewa" release. I know it isn't "pure" gamelan, but enjoyable just the same. Hopefully, Loren and others will weigh in on this subject with some recommendations.    Harry

I have about 30 Roach CDs, and I like less than half of 'em... but when he's good, he's great!
