hi fernando:

by any chance is the white rainbow box one of the titles you already had? (i'm thinking no.) :)

however, if you are considering selling it, drop me a note, off-forum.

that aside, yes, those are great snags indeed. and agree with drone on completely regarding finding such gems in that old...what are they called?...oh yes, record stores. i've written at great length (both here & elsewhere) about how the very fact that a record store is rapidly becoming a relic of the past speaks volumes about the gradual erosion of art, culture, and even civil commerce, in our society. an absolutely sad state of affairs.

i continue to frequent what shops exist in the metro new york city/new jersey area on a fairly regular basis (other music, generations, downtown music gallery, princeton record exchange, vintage vinyl - that's pretty much it), especially for the types of finds you came across. i certainly want the brick-and-mortars to survive - and my wallet does its part to ensure their survival, believe me!

saul's set was absolutely superb, augmented by the video accompaniment that was some of the finest, synergistic imagery i've seen in an electronic music performance, certainly one of the more imaginative ones presented @ the gathering(s). saul remains a true original - he's apparently incapable of putting on a bad show, and he creates textures and rhythmic architecture (not to mention his particularly savvy ear for notes and filigree) that hold him head & shoulders above just about anyone doing this Electronica Thing of Ours. ;)

a bit tough to describe the sounds: he initiates palpable wedges of drift and circumstance that are punctuated with the odd resonance or filip that manages to never ape whatever genres have come down the pike before. he more or less provides the reasons why electronic music probably fascinates most of us: unheard-of sounds rendered flesh and set within new contexts that refuse to simply tow "idm/ambient/what-have-you" lines. the "metacollage" limited edition is also worth every penny, btw - buy or die! :)

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: jason.sloan [ -- ] NEW ALBUM!
« on: April 26, 2009, 07:09:41 PM »
a bit overdue i know, but thought i would mention that jason put on a superb set last week at this year's inaugural gatherings event in philly. eschewing general 'ambience', he opted instead to present a varied showing of beat-based constructs that were whipped into engaging, well-wrought soundscapes, shot through with bits & tears of the kind of drone/atmospheric work he's so well-known for. also finally got to meet him after all these years (he was an interview subject for one of the earliest issues of "e/i"); very gregarious chap with a broad interest in music, and talented to boot. oh, and this new album is quite excellent, through & through, from the plexiglass encasement it comes in to the adroit textures weaved within. highly recommended.

Very impressive indeed, Julio, so much so that I just went & ordered a copy! You have an interesting variety of textures winding their way through both discs, the sounds of which seem to court both familiar ambient vocabularies as well as new directions in "glitch"-based sequencer music. Look forward to investigating further once the album arrives.

I, for one, am very much looking forward to this "reboot." The trailers are patently exciting, and Abrams, a self-confessed "non-Trekker", seems to have enough remove from the show's mythology to approach it fresh, in effect "contemporizing" it, while retaining the original precis of the series. The casting looks spot-on, the effects impeccable I frankly don't care that Abrams might have toyed with the series "history" to tell this particular chapter; die-hard Trek obsessives have spouted objections, most of which tends to be quasi lunatic-fringe stuff, the picayune nature of which I doubt will muddy what has come before (either the TV or film incarnations), and might very well be a fascinating new direction for Abrams & Co. to explore. (I'm not necessarily a raving fan of Abrams work, mind you, but thought he certainly produced the best Mission Impossible film thus far, so he seems up to the task for this project). In any event, color me ready to boldly go, etc., etc.

Been trying to track down a copy of Ken Martin's "Berlin Impressions Vols. 1 & 2" CD (Space for Music), even so far as trying to get one from the artist himself, with no luck. I'm looking for the original version on the Space for Music label (I don't do downloads, so I'm not interested in going the Musiczeit route). Anyone willing to sell a copy (trades considered as well - send your list) please get in touch offlist at eimag@verizon.net - thanks!
