I drive about 3000 miles a month. I do try to save money by driving a 2005 Toyota Corrola. This is my third Corrola. But, I would like to do better next car. The only problem is I like the efficiency combined with the pickup of my car. I do live in South Texas where things are fairly far apart and 55 seems rediculous. If they can make an affordable alternative car that I can get good mileage with, and get out of the way of 18 wheelers as I merge on the highway , then I 'll buy it!      Harry

I agree with you , Giorgio, about the interface. It seems a little cheezy. I haven't gone up to see it yet, but I'll let you know once I have. The idea of pointing the kids to which notes sound best together is wrong as well. Knowing kids, I'm sure some of them experiment with the "wrong" notes. I know I will! There are supposed to be some other hands-on displays that show different ways of making music. It should be an interesting trip. I'm meeting a friend of mine who also plays music to go to the exhibit. We should be quite a sight. Two well over 50 year olds playing around in a children's museum!  ;D      Harry

Hey, that's very cool!  Wish I could see it.  Harry, if like those sounds, you should also check out the sound sculpture music of Robert Rutman and Harry Bertoia.

Hi Forrest,  I will check those artists out. It's great that you responded to this thread because I was doing a search on gongs after listening to your release, "Gongland" when I found this site. Thanks,   Harry

This is a really interesting site where Eric Archer discusses his electric gong project. It's currently on display at the Austin Children's Museum (Austin, Texas) and is a hands on instrument. I think I'll drive up there next week and try it out. It's only about an hour drive from here.    Harry

I believe my music is up there but I don't have a subscription so I can't check myself.
     Yeah, some of your stuff is there, Loren. I forgot to mention you, as well as some others. I have already downloaded yours and am looking forward to you putting more up. Great stuff!!     Harry

Thanks for the info. I am and will be downloading some from each of you. I often let the month get by without using all of my downloads. There are so many artists on emusic that I tend to just try the ones that I recognize. Now, I've got some new music to try. Anyone else who has music on emusic feel free to add to this thread, or any artists you may know about that I should try.     Harry

I just discovered Deepspace's music on emusic and downloaded it. Are there any more  forum member's recordings on emusic? I've already found Numina, Terra Ambient and a few others.    Harry

[quote author=Bill Binkelman link=topic=921.msg7310#msg7310'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       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!!
