Hypnos Label Releases / Re: CD release: Nverxion - A Look Within
« on: January 10, 2008, 02:45:25 PM »
I just got the copy I ordered of "A Look Within" last week. It has been played a lot at my house and in my car since then. I am terrible at reviews, I prefer to leave those to people like Bill and others. I will say that I do enjoy it a lot. Highly recommended!   Harry D                                                                                                                    P.S. I said it on the old forum, but will repeat it here. Mike and Lena do a great job of getting products out. I have ordered quite a few small orders recently. I usually order on a Sunday and have my cd's by Wednesday or Thursday here in San Antonio. Who knew the Pony Express could move out like that. Great job you two. :)

Everything and Nothing / Re: What are your plans and goals in 2008?
« on: January 08, 2008, 10:15:20 PM »
I want to clean up my studio, finally paint my modular cabinets and put my modular back together so I can use it again. Then, I can post a photo of my studio to the forum. That is, if I can figure out how to do it. ( Mike, get ready for a bunch of stupid questions). I want to post some music for forumites to hear and critique. It has been so long since I have exposed any of my music for review by my peers. It is way overdue. I need to get more excercise. I sit on my butt everyday driving 150+ miles a day. Lose about 5-6 pounds and eat better. Appreciate life and enjoy my family and friends more, because that's what it's all about.  ;D     harry D

Everything and Nothing / Re: New flatscreen TV recommendations?
« on: January 07, 2008, 02:24:13 PM »
Hi Bill,  My wife and I just bought a 26" Westinghouse LCD at Best Buy about 3 months ago for a little over $500 with tax. Our 25" Toshiba that was a demo at the company I worked for gave out on us. I bought it for $150 in 1986 and it just gave up the ghost after only 21 years. Piece of junk!  ;) I'm real happy with the Westinghouse set. I also was limited as to how big the set could be in width. One thing you need to remember is that when you are in a showroom, anything under 42" looks small. In your home, however, a really large set can swallow your room unless the room is very large. I have installed sets in the past that were way to big for the room they were to be used in. BTW, as one of the elders here I also remember some of those things you mentioned. Does any one else remember sign off of the tv stations at about 11 p.m. ?    Harry D

Wow! Bill, those pictures do make me cold. It does look like Christmas, though. It's supposed to get down to 36 here tonight. I may have to look for my jacket. It's around here somewhere, I know. I think I used it once last year, or was that the year before?  Hmmm...   ;)  Merry Happy and Happy Merry to all.   Harry D

Everything and Nothing / Re: The holiday food you're waiting for
« on: December 19, 2007, 10:23:17 PM »
Speaking of things that SOUND absolutely disgusting... my oldest friend has a party dish he makes which is fairly common, actually.  It's a dip involving canned chili and velveeta pseudo-cheese, melted and stirred into a sloppy goo.  Sounds disgusting, yes, but if you try a taste you'll find yourself eating more and more and more until you have a bellyache and salt poisoning.
                                                                                                                       Oh, yes.  That is good. My wife makes a similar dish with Velveeta and a can of Rotel tomatoes and green chilis. I don't worry about it during the holidays, though. I just double up on my cholesterol medication and ,of course, have another beer. OMG, Angel Food Chocolate!!!  I need some now!!!   Harry D

Here in San Antonio, it's homemade tamales. I'm not of hispanic descent, but I have friends that always invite us over during the holidays plus I have a source of a family that makes them at home for sale. They are delicious! Nothing like the store bought kind. Sadly, I hear that many of the younger Mexican - American kids aren't interested in carrying on the time consuming family tradition of the Tamalada :( .  Anyway, I'll enjoy them while I have them.  Harry D

"Dali: The Endless Enigma", ooh, I have forgotten about that release. That is a really good recording! I need to go back through my extremely well organised ::) cd collection and find it. I haven't listened to it in quite sometime.   Harry D

Can't wait to hear his new release, "Arc of Passion". I'll probably pick it up after christmas or so. How does it sound actually? A bit like "Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces"?
"Mystic Chords and Sacred Spaces" is one of my favorite Steve Roach releases. but "Arc of Passion" sounds nothing like it.    Harry D

On the "old" forum, 9dragons had a thread going on this. He posted some really interesting links to live performances recently. 9dragons, do you still have those links and would you post them again? Thanks,   Harry D

What every ambient music fan needs for Christmas, a Brian Eno iPod.  www.zetona.org/markwahl/20070713_01.shtml   ;)   Harry D

I use Digidesign Mbox for recording. I also use Acid Pro 4, as well. My main instrument is my modular which is mostly Synthesizers.com modules with some Blacet, MOTM, Wiard and DIY modules tossed in for good measure. I also have and use a Kawaii K5000s, Nord Micromodular, DSI Evolver,Yamaha CS-50, Roland HPD-15 Handsonic, and a bunch of other hardware and software synths. I definitely have more gear than talent ;)  As far as a secret weapon is concerned, it must be really secret, as I haven't a clue what it is. I am still looking , though.     Harry D

« on: December 07, 2007, 02:16:53 PM »
I have heard the tracks several times and I'm not sure why the split, either. One is more intense than the other. It ,also, would be more than an hour of sequenced music which might be a bit much for some. There is definitely a different feel to both tracks. But, that being said, it could easily be one long track IMO.  Harry D

I've been listening to it, Arc of Passion, the last few days and it is very enjoyable. A great blend of ambient and Berlin School. I'm finding the 4th track, Views Beyond, to be most interesting.   Harry D

Hello,  I've been lost and trying to find my way home. Is this it? :) Glad to see the forum back. You don't realize how much you enjoy something until it's gone.   Harry D
