Everything and Nothing / Single disc CD players
« on: September 06, 2008, 12:03:24 PM »
I started this thread on the old forum, and since it was lost with the last server meltdown I thought  I would bring it up again. Originally I was looking for a dedicated single CD player, not a DVD player that also plays CDs or a multi-disc player. It seems single CD players are getting hard to find. Their was some pretty good advice last time around so I thought it might be nice if we could go over this again.

Since that time I ended up buying an Onkyo DX702 deck from my local Goodwill for $14.  ;D Hard to pass up at that price. It is used, about 16 years old but one nice feature it has that my old CD player didn't have (aside from actually playing discs without skipping) is a digital output. My receiver has digital ins so this should give me an improvement in sound quality.

In any case I would still like some advice for new players as I would like to upgrade my living room system (I bought the Onkyo for the bedroom) at some point in the future.

Everything and Nothing / Moving threads?

I was just wondering instead of locking a thread is it possible with this forum to move threads to  a different area, like the Free-For All zone? Just wondering out loud.

Everything and Nothing / RIP Bebe Barron
« on: April 20, 2008, 11:55:18 AM »
I just recieved this from composer Barry Schrader, most of you probably best know her for the music for the classic scifi film Forbidden Planet:

"It is with great sadness that I report the death of Bebe Barron on April 20, 2008 at the age of 82, of natural causes. Bebe was the last of the pioneering composers of classical studio electronic music. She was a close friend, an enthusiastic colleague, and a most gracious lady.

Bebe Barron was born Charlotte Wind in Minneapolis, on June 16, 1925. She received an MA in political science from the University of Minnesota, where she studied composition with Roque Cordero, and she also spent a year studying composition and ethnomusicology at the University of Mexico. In 1947 she moved to New York and, while working as a researcher for Time-Life, studied composition with Wallingford Reigger and Henry Cowell. That same year, she met and married Louis Barron (1920 - 1989). Shortly thereafter, the Barrons began their experiments with the recording and manipulation of sound material by means of a tape recorder that they received as a wedding gift. They created a private studio in New York and, in 1955, composed the first electronic music score for a commercial film, Forbidden Planet. In 1962 the Barrons moved to Los Angeles; they divorced in 1970. In 1973, Bebe married Leonard Neubauer, a screen writer. Bebe became the first Secretary of the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States (SEAMUS) in 1985, and also served on the Board of Directors. In 1997 Bebe was presented the SEAMUS Award for the Barrons life work in the field of electro-acoustic music. She is survived by her husband, Leonard, and her son, Adam."

Hypnos Label Releases / A Produce & Loren Nerell, Intangible
« on: December 22, 2007, 10:58:05 PM »
Over the past summer Barry (A Produce) and I spent quite a bit of time working on some music together with the thought that if turned out half way decent maybe we would put it out. For various reasons we had to stop for a while and haven't been able to get back together to work on it some more. In the mean while Barry sent his film maker friend Barton Santello an mp3 of one of our tracks which he then used as the sound track to his film "Intangible." I just ran across it and thought maybe some of you might enjoy hearing what we were up to. Click on the link below to hear and see the film, I hope you enjoy it.
