Everything and Nothing / Re: Karlheinz Stockhausen has died
« on: December 08, 2007, 09:47:08 PM »
When I studied electronic music in college, I remember being exposed to Stockhausen's "Gesang Der Junglinge," a electronic tape piece based on processed children's voices.  Very strange stuff.  I think that some of his more "outside" electronic pieces using shortwave and contact microphones (such as "Mikrophonie" and "Hymnen") may have influenced some of the early industrial musicians in the 80s and maybe even of the field recording-oriented folks today.  I found his pieces with more conventional classical instrumentation on DGG to be less interesting, very serial and almost atonal in nature.  I think he obtained control of his entire DGG back catalog and reissued them a few years ago for 2-3X the price of a regular CD.  I still see copies of them at Amoeba, but have not been tempted to pick them up.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: British dronemeisters

Have been enjoying Paul Bradley's "Cede" 3" this week.  It's a bit more open sounding than "Searching For the Way," and maybe a little more tonal.

They also released some more instrumental-oriented stuff under the CTI moniker.  I have CTI's Point Seven from their "Library of Sound" series.  Very pleasant exploratory ambient with some beats and occasional voices.

Hey, Mike, thanks for your efforts in getting the forum up and running again.  Everything looks fine and readible in IE 6.0.
