Everything and Nothing / Re: One Thousand Pulses home concert series

Darren, you're way too close in proximity (a quick jaunt up the Parkway) for me to say no to some of these shows.  I'll definitely be at Robert Rich, and I'd like to come to the GoS and Experimedia showcases, too.

excellent, brian - look forward to seeing you here!

I drove six hours to Philly to see Roach. Four and a half to northern NJ will be a cakewalk. ;-)

there ya' go - just load your car audio of choice, gas up, and you're off! :)

gearing up as we speak for tomorrow's inaugural otp event!

i am very pleased to announce that robert rich has now been confirmed for his one thousand pulses debut on may 15th. between spyra, northern valentine, and now robert, i can't think of a better way to kick off otp's spring season.

i hope to see many of you at one or more of our upcoming events!

Though of course this series will be of greatest interest to those in the NJ/NY/PA area, I think this sounds like a fantastic series.  We need more of this kind of thing to keep feeding the "scene," such as it is.  Great stuff, Darren, and good luck!

thanks, mike.

numerous plans are in development to broaden the otp outreach by initiating a network that will begin locally, expand regionally and then eventually nationally. additional related projects are in the works as well, all to be unveiled in good time. :)

now *this* is an insane question... ;)

i went through my database and just did a cursory glance coming up with these, which is by no means an exhaustive list (all CDs):

- alio die: incl. collabs, 31+
- asmus tietchens: 38+
- atom heart: incl. collabs, 35+
- bill laswell: 40+
- brian eno: 30+
- cabaret voltaire: complete catalog, incl. all aliases/solo/collabs, 70+
- chris & cosey: 30+
- conrad schnitzler: 35+
- controlled bleeding: 15
- future sound of london: 20
- harold budd: incl. collabs, 20+
- ian boddy: entire catalog, incl. collabs, 28+
- kim cascone: incl. collabs, aliases: 30+
- klaus schulze: entire catalog, 60+
- mathias grassow: incl. collabs, 30+
- nurse with wound: 45+
- ontayso: 44+
- oophoi: 30+
- radio massacre international: entire catalog, 36 discs
- rapoon: entire catalog, incl. collabs, 40+
- richard bone: 20
- robert rich: 30+
- roedelius, moebius, cluster: 50+
- steve roach: entire catalog incl. collaborative projects, 85+
- tangerine dream: 66
- the orb: 21
- vidna obmana: 30+
- zoviet france: entire catalog incl. collabs, 25+

the winner is probably namlook/fax cds, of which i have well over 117 namlook, and another 70+ fax discs.

and mind you, this is just culled from the electronic portion of my library - doesn't count jazz or rock, such as complete catalogs of miles davis, ozric tentacles, weather report, wire, genesis, yes, bowie, billy cobham, john mclaughlin/mahavishnu, lee morgan, freddie hubbard, allan holdsworth, just about all pat metheny, good chunk of king crimson, etc.

not sure of the efficacy of this question. i don't consider myself a completist per se, except that if i like a certain artist/group well enough i generally have acquired all of what they've done (or what is available), but this isn't a hard and fast rule. some artists have released what i thought were terrible records that i never bothered with when they were released on CD, or just didn't like enough to want to own. some artists are just incredibly prolific, or have been around for some time (t.d., schulze, roach, metheny, etc.) and have vast back catalogs.

and, in many cases, it's not the quantity per se but the quality... :)

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!

more up, including some rare compilations of d'n'b & electronica, plus a number of auctions ending today & tomorrow:

thanks for looking!

more up, including several rare compilations, plus idm, ambient, techno, electroacoustic improv, many others:

i hope some folks here will find some choice items of interest. :) thanks for looking!

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.

hello to all:

a quite varied assortment of titles now up for grabs on da 'bay which might peak the interests of some of you forumites:

includes great compilations of way OOP techno & idm/electronica & ambient, plus artist full-lengths.

thanks for looking!

hello to all:

more rare stuff just posted. discs from ming, moughqual, joe colley/jason lescalleet, labels such as gooom discs, amorfon, nova zembla, etc. check 'em out here:

thanks for looking!

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: New cd release.
« on: April 07, 2009, 10:38:02 PM »
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.

hello all:

huge, varied assortment of CDs now up and posted on ebay, with more to follow.

here's the link:

a very large assortment here, crossing ambient, techno, drone, experimental soundscape, etc.

thanks for your interest - happying bidding!

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 - thanks!
