I just finished revamping my studio, I moved it to a bigger room and also pulled the old mixer out of storage and have put it back in service. Other then that not much different except for the layout and location. So here is the latest version:

Now somebody tell me, pray... can I get a witness?: do I absolutely have to seek out Slow and Low at all costs, or will my life still be liveable to the full without it? And what's with Waterloo Terminal?

If you like Ambiant Otaku and Organic Cloud then you should probably also get  Slow and Low. I also think World Receiver is worth getting. Waterloo Terminal I never really liked, I think it was one of his first in his glitch phase. It's been awhile though so I should probably give it a listen again.

Did you read that he quited making music because of illegal downloads in russia?
Such a fool.

It's pretty dishearting to find your music posted all over the internet for free the week after your CD is released, and then to watch your record company struggle to break even. Forget about making a profit, this music is hard enough sell as it is. Personally I think its the person uploading the media who is the real fool.

Good timing, Barry and I got together yesterday to work on some matrial, although not much really came of it as we mainly just reviewed what we have done so far and talked about direction. Yes we have I believe five tracks so far which adds up to around 42 minutes of matrial.  We are thinking maybe a couple of more tracks and we will be finished.  Stay tuned.  :)

Also you can check out about 30 pictures from "Concierto Homenaje a Jorge Reyes" on www.hi5.com, but I think you have to register first. Here is the link, it's a page of my Mexican amigo, Julio Cesar Martinez, who collaborated with Jorge on his soundscape CDs.

You have to register with either link. Any other way to see the pics? I wish I had known about the tribute before the concert had happened.

You get major kudos from me if you know the reference that is from.  ;D

I didn't know he was on tour. Wonder if he's coming (or already played) here in Seattle.

Vancouver was your best bet, that's as close as he came to Seattle and it was the last stop on his North American tour.

Yes the night before I saw this exact show in Los Angeles at the lovely Royce Hall, UCLA, lucky for me I was in the perfect spot to see the show, six row dead center. 

Youssef was a very pleasant surprise, no one I knew was expecting it, he was very heady and energetic. Then Jon and the band came out and blew us all away. Such a delicate set of music from something mostly electronic based. Jon set a new bar for restraint and refinement with lots of energy in a live concert environment. I kept thinking in the movie Blade Runner if their had been an opium den, then Jon and his band would have been the house band for it.

Speaking of Steve Roach, Steve flew in from Tucson for the day just to see the show. He and Jeff Fayman sat next to me. The only other ambient guy I saw at the show was Tom Heasley. After the show we got to speak to Jon very briefly, he mentioned he was flying into Vancouver that morning, they had a 4:30 AM flight, and that he had not slept in two days!  After that we decided to leave him alone so he could maybe get a bit of sleep before catching his flight. A great show, the highlight of the year so far.

Hey, Loren, when I was a member of Roxy Music, I wrote a song about that!


Yes I seem to remember that back when I was in Fleetwood Mac.  ;)

I'm currently unattached but my last girlfriend is a dancer. She's danced her way half way around the world and hasn't made it back.  :-\

I think Loren Nerell looks a bit like Mick Fleetwood.

That's not what Christine McVie & Stevie Nicks told me.  ;D

The compressor consist of many different sound shaping elements, such as filters etc, all together makes an complete compressor.

Compressors use filters? Time to go back and relearn what actually is an audio compressor:

Its been a day now since I heard the news and I am still in a state of shock. I had the pleasure of meeting Jorge back in the early 1990s at Steve Roach's house right after Suspended Memories had completed recording their first album. That weekend they performed together live in Steve's living room for an Echos living room concert, I think it might have been one of the first in that series. As Forest said he was a very polite and focused person with a dry sense of humor. He will be missed. Time now to break out all his LPs and CDs and relive some nice memories.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Strange multiple echoes?
« on: February 02, 2009, 07:02:42 PM »
Well I am not there so I can't say for sure, but just because you have all those things you mention in the room does not mean it still can't be coming from the room. It actually could be caused by any on those objects you mentioned themselves. The furniture, the rod that holds up the curtains, a piece of paper, a loose screen or window, even the vinyl siding outside. It doesn't really matter what it is, if the right frequency is produced any of those objects can vibrate sympathetically at any time.

Sounds like a sympathetic vibration. Something in or just outside the room is vibrating that is causing your bell like sound.

This was sent to me by Steve Roach, too bad the dog is not included in the deal.  ;D

I highly doubt SR will ever release anything as a download, from what I know of his opinion on the subject.  Personally I don't like download only albums either. 

What about something released only as a podcast, any problems with that?

"Redline Monitor makes mixes sound identical on speakers and headphones."

Has anyone of you tried this ???

From their page:

Quote
Its proprietary algorithm performs a sophisticated combination of filtering, frequency-dependent delaying, mid/side processing, and room simulation to create a convincing acoustic soundstage that allows you to properly localize sound sources.

I would never use it, it kind of defeats the purpose of mastering, you don't want to add anything to simulate what you might hear and to then make corrections, you want to actually hear it for real and then add corrections.

Most mastering engineers I know say the most important tools the mastering engineer has are their years of experience followed by the sound of the room he/she uses.

As for compression I don't think its really needed that much in most ambient music, maybe a bit of limiting to make sure their are no overs of the digtial signal. Compression is over used in most popular music, I think its best to stay away from it for the most part.

Everything and Nothing / Re: 12K vs. U2
« on: January 22, 2009, 09:28:00 AM »
I have to say I don't see why U2 is being singled out here. If anyone is to blame its the artist Hiroshi Sugimoto, after all he should know what his art is being used for. And if he worked personally with 12k on the cover then he really has no excuse except for the fact that he was probably offered lots of money for the rights to do the U2 version.

Great promotion - excellent marketing.

who said controversy doesn't sell.

The only problem is the article says that the 12k CD was a limited edition that has already sold out.
