Art and Literature, Movies and TV / Re: Interstellar

well what I ca say about this film is it is extremely high quality film, it is really flawless,

The storytelling is kind of slow, but in a good way, however, the biggest and only problem with this film is that it is way too short.
Why I appreciate the slow story telling in the beginning the end suffers a lot,  this should had been an epic 3 hour film nothing less...

Otherwise this is space drama in its highest caliber.  I really love space movies like this. Movies like Prometheus  etc.

I got a bit of a nostalgia buzz watching the first episode of the new miniseries. But, after the second episode, I didn't have any incentive to continue watching. I can't quite put my finger on it, but things just seemed contrived and silly.

Sometimes it seem they just standed there doing nothing all to grab money from all the million fans etc...
it seem almost like a rip off.

I think directors and maybe time frame and economy is to blame  something went very wrong with this mini series it is not up to standards.
But it has moments of greatness it is very uneven. Well this was a sad reunion.

If they ever decide to do another season I will still give it a chance though but I think a lot of this stuff should never have aired...
There must be some kind of quality control of the material they have before air it ?

I have now seen the 10th season mini series, I must say it was surprisingly bad.

I think drone did sumurize it in a good way the last and first episode (directed by chris carter) was the most watchable.

I think we can't really blame mulder and scully for bad acting, but I think the directors and also the script is to blame, it is especially in 2-4 episode horrible.
Episode 2,3,4 was a joke, it felt like those episodes where trying to make a parody of x files,  mulder even had the xfiles ring tone in his smartphone wtf ?
Yeah this is really terrible ,after watching all 9 seasons recently there is a lot of really terrible episodes, but what we see here is actually bad acting,
and again I think it is directors to blame cause some scenes the acting is good and some not, it looks like they had a tight budget to be honest.

They could skip episode 2,3,4 all together they where just plain silly and feelt like they just wanted to make fun of x-files.

I think with better directing and script mulder and scully are still able to deliver for sure, since you see some bright moments especially in last episode,

1-4 epsiode felt much like warm-up phase, like they did not felt completely  comfortable in their clothes yet.

I also strongly prefer to UFO themed epiosodes in fact they could release an Bluray box with only the UFO related episodes, there is so many crap epsiodes in the series, a lot of silly monster and panorama silly stuff the UFO conspiracy episodes I think is what most people like, atleast that is what the hardcore fans want to see.

The ending of Episode 6 in the new series lay a good ground for new series...If they decide to do more episodes they really need to change things...
Atleast directors who can decide what is a good and not good take to begin with, it felt like in this series that they just took the first take and did go to the next. The acting and script is so bad sometimes.. very uneven quality.... But last episodes show some hope..but both still feels little bit rigid.

I have now finally wathched all 9 seaons, it took a lot longer time then I thought but it is because every season was like 22 episodes, on todays standard
that is kind of a lot.

Looking forward to start watching season 10 tonight!
I hope scully still looks hot

Experiencing "Puja"... A thrillingly transcendental journey through Indo-Gangetic Plains and Tibetan Plateau awaits here!!! David Parsons returns at the very top of his extraordinary wizardry, bravo, Maestro!!! Still in the middle of the pilgrimage, but it sounds already as a very strong competitor for Best of 2016. Thank you, David, thank you, Johan/gterma!!!

Wow I am not really excited to hear the album  :)

« on: March 27, 2016, 10:22:21 PM »
one thing I wonder about this oceanic amount of modules, is does it sound as good as it looks ?
sure it is analog, but a lot of this module companies are pretty much made by people in the garage,
sure a lot have good functions , but it seem to be a lot about the eye candy stuff too..

Anyway I will jump on the modular train before I die to, but it is little bit too expensive for me right now.


47
it is a great album, I made a thread up it, you can post your review there :)

48
I bought mine just in time. Cant find them in my part of Canada now either.
Really grown to like it a lot.

Yes I saw most music stores in my country had them in stock but after like a few weeks all was gone.
I think it has sold very well globally and I think even more so in Japan there home country there is a lot of loyal korg people there.
I think this has been a huge success for Korg. They have made so much right with it, but the success
is mostly based on on the low price and good value. I hope the price will not go up.

yes If you wanted to buy one you had to act fast, I was very close to buy one but I had no panic or rush I mainly wanted it for the summer maybe the price did go down a little bit too I thought.

A big thanks for bringing up this, David Parsson is among my favorites, he usually produce very high quality analog sounding ambient/drone stuff.

Not to be rude or something but I have put this thread little bit to rest, I need ot research "gain staging" more in debt  especially when reverb is added.
The is one good thing with analog that it can sound good when you crank up the volume high with digital you need to be really careful about the levels to avoid ugly digital artifacts.

51
Korg Minilougue is currently totally sold out in EU new stock date is in about 2 months.
I guess Korg was not prepared for it.

52
not sure what we can expect from this album, but I think we can expect maybe something a long the lines with steve roach albus with vir unis, with complex percussion. Anyway it looks like this album will be something special I hope so. I think it is good steve works with others too

53
korg is japanese I wonder what the price is in its home country if it is worth to import it maybe ?

I believe the computer where you are using the plugin does have to connect to the internet for the licence manager to licence the plugin.

I don't let my music computer taste the dubious wonders of the internet either, except when it has to verify or register something.

Well I think with the introduction of quad core processors that rule is less relevant today. I mean you can even run anti virus software on a DAW computer today. But I have a feeling most of you use apple products here anyway and apple people do not even use anti virus . Personally I never connect to the internet without it. You need to look at the dpc latency though if it cause spikes you have problems if dealing with low latency audio.

Personally I only have one computer so I do not have the luxury to have a special computer designed only for daw Stuff.

I am finally coming up for air after two months of being immersed in the final stages of two new releases, along with mapping out the sound flow into the Summer. Both new releases are now at the CD plant and in the digital download queue.

These two releases are each going to be special but very different statements. Full details coming soon. Biosonic and Second Nature on Projekt are collaborations with Robert Logan, a highly talented electronic artist based in London. We have been interfacing on this music for four years, and completed the projects together at The Timeroom in December. The story of this collaboration is rich, and the results are pushing high and deep into new dimensions; mind, body and soul-expanding music. Biosonic and Second Nature are coming in April. Stay tuned!

His release, "Towards the Blue Peninsula" is very good, I purchased that one through BC awhile ago but haven't haven't played it recently.

I never listen to full albums streaming like that on BC because the quality is so poor. It just helps me figure out if something is to my taste or not.

Well it is easy to forget when listening to BC about the quality but if you play side by side with your full quality version from your hdd the difference is really big.

All I can really say is make sure to not miss this album...it is remarkable trust me...

https://infraction.bandcamp.com/album/the-ear-that-was-sold-to-a-fish

Please try to find it i better quality though since bandcamp is on 128kbps for free users and sound kind of flat and 2d.

Did just listen to the Substrata album today first time in my new speakers and DAC I was totally blown away by its hypnotic quality.
It is a pure 5 star album from beginning to the end. It has this really strong cinematic quality much inspired from the Norwegian environment for sure.

Cirque  was really good too I did listen to it today, I would rate it 4.5

Well it is nice to go back to some old stuff to get som references and you realize that a lot of stuff today does not reach this high level.

This will be my mission today and go thu the biosphere albums, it was one of my first experiences with ambient and I think that was the case for many. Now days it is different cause ambient is everwhere...it was a smaller niche back then

I have watched this in its entirety a number of times since finding it on you tube and still not fed up of it, its a great video, I just wished he'd get rid of the laptop though.

He need the laptop since he use a lot midi  especially for his modulars and sequencers
