Other Ambient (and related) Music / Pjusk - Sus Video

Amazing video of this 12k label group.....have not heard the entire cd as it was sold out by the time I got round to it.  Music seems like a bit or a breakaway sound for 12k

Ok...I'l shake some stuff up here and jump in with my own purely selfish collaboration wish...I would love to do an album of my ethic percussion and synth playing with Saul Stokes wonderfully weird synth and percussion scapes and Jeff Pearce's guitar and stick playing!!!

That would be an epic performance...I can already hear it in my head!

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / A stroll through Vince Clarke's studio

Stumbled across this last night......beautiful "scenery". 

Part 1


Part 2



If you are still interested the following videos are Clarke programming a few of his wonderful toys!  The credits at the end of each video are pretty funny, gave me a chuckle.

I just watched this again....in many ways, at least for me, it little manifesto, albeit, somewhat erudite, of what I search for and find in ambient music.

Was such a great album title for that image.

Classic Joel Meyerowitz picture, or is it William Eggelston, either way.....yes Anthony, a classic coming to together of music, concept & image.  I especially like the reverse lp side of all the musicians stuffed tight into the album title.  Notice how the record label is almost a smug....right, sorry, get off topic here.



Have this idea of creating a little Airstream compound, perhaps 3 in a U shape, garden in the middle, etc....not sure if I could live in just one.  Where is the studio going to go?
I had a similar idea, Julio. Mine was two airstreams in an "L" shape. The main one was for living and in the second I would strip out the living and kitchen area for my studio and the bedroom and bath would be for guests. In the middle of the L would be my barbecuing area and garden.

Excellent Harry......I like your idea better...I missed the BBQ part of the vision.  Let me know when it comes together and Ill be right over...Cheers

I just love that blog...thanks for posting it Harry.

For years I have had on again off again "interest" in Airstream Trailers, it started when I first got this LP...

Very interesting interview......never thought about music in this manner.  It will get those brain cells up and firing.

Not certain about the software for my use anyway...I have the trial version, lets see.

Cant take credit for the pixs....pulled them off the 12K site.  Most likely snapped by Taylor.  This is on its way to me.  Strange the images have disappeared from the post though....?

I see them this morning......the music and packaging are wonderful.  Looking forward to listening, looking, reading and touching!

Special post Mike......it touches my heart that in this world of icy cold techno-capitalism there is a purity of vision that works within the rape, rampage and pillage of our everyday world...sorry for being over dramatic but still and yet, that was a sales tool for apple that Jobs tapped into...a little techno-capitalistic madison avenue slight of hand.

Not so....that was a dreamer, who saw through it and still somehow brought the giant to his knees.

In the article that forrest posted, which is actually really well written, there's a mention of john cages performance "as slow as possible" which is being performed and is supposed to last for six centuries. 
Here is the link to an NPR airing about it  http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=1421511

Thats true Mike....its not the mastering engineers fault, they supply a service to their clients. This is such a huge and thorny topic it scares me to talk about it so openly :-X

Not sure I have ever come across a lazy mastering engineer. Bad mastering, yes and usually homespun.

595
It was a pleasant "zen mind" kind of boredom. I miss it very much.

That says it all, dont you think......it was exactly this that drew me into the music in my youth, still does today.

I cant imagine writing a six hour song, that is one that would keep my interest, let alone anyone else's......I would listen to one though.

596
John, the Matt Hillier post going over the various historic mastering levels paints the picture of the problem of compression & limiting in music for at least the last 10 yrs, not just ambient.  That post should be a "Sticky" or what ever one calls it.  It should be posted somewhere here for those that "want to try this at home"  It could serve as a reference, so people hopefully wont slam their music into oblivion.  All the software for mastering will do this.....the presets are design as such and really are best left to experienced mastering engineers to use.  Its too easy to fall into the trap.

Not sure if any of this is helping the OP

 

597
Definitely follow John's advice.....there is mastering out there to fit all budgets. You just have to make it part of your production costs.  Im hardcore when it comes to this an feel that no person should master there own music especially in the same room they recorded it in.   Heres the link on the discussion  http://www.hypnos.com/smf/index.php?topic=1585.0

Thats very interesting an sounds amazing .....the iPad is proving to be a unique platform to run musical software.  Moogs first poly synth in many years is realized in software on hardware for the people...cool!

As a surfer / surfboard builder Im always looking for the challenge most often beyond my own capabilities.......the videos below exhibit this.  Its hard to understand for those that dont surf that situations like this can take your life.  Ironic when the surfers seem to be standing there enjoying the view while being chased by roaring giants.  I think I would be sitting in a boat watching....you have to now your limitations.   Tavurua, where this takes place is a heart shaped island in Fiji.

Enjoy the ride

P.S.Sorry about the ad's cant control that....worth expanding this videos to full screen and turning up the volume
