The world of Oenyaw
I just noticed this, what is in that odd shaped case in the background of these two photos? My guess would be a sitar or vina, am I close?

The world of Oenyaw
I've noticed a lot of people in this thread (and in past "gear shot" type threads) - not everyone, but many people have a tendency towards indian, native american, aboriginal, african, etc... types of decorations
Second is current studio, though it has been relocated to a smaller room as we moved to a smaller house in a smaller street after taking this photo.
What is the little blue/silver box on the right end of the Kurzweil ?
The Gizmotron was the creation of Lol Creme and Kevin Godley from the 70s art band, 10cc. After they split from 10cc, they did a pretty wild 3 LP project called "Consequences," that was supposed to spotlight the Gizmo, but ended up blowing a huge budget in the process. It's an entertaining album if you don't mind dialogue (Peter Cook does the voices), and even has Sarah Vaughn guesting on one track, "Lost Weekend."
I think the Gizmo is a little different from the ebow, in that there is more physical contact with the strings, but I never got to try one out.
I just read this wikipedia article - it's interesting...
Not that I have any interest whatsoever in ever recording music, but just out of curiosity, if one wanted to record non-rhythmic ambient music (i.e. no drum programming machines needed), what would be the minimum one would need to spend to a) compose and play it b) record and mix it c) make high quality CD-Rs of it.
So, the prospect of spending what looks like mega bucks on all that gear (and, knowing how small the market is for ambient music and how "well" it sells) well, to be blunt, how do you justify it?
I just wanted to let you all know that if you're on my MySpace friends list, you are going to find a nice little bulletin from "me" about how I am apparently a "Nawty Babe", who wants to "Hook-Up". (yeesh).....
I've got a couple of Ron's releases, one of my favourites being 'Of Desolate Places And Urban Jungles', released 10 yars ago on a 3" CD by the Amplexus label. A really good mix of beats and sound recordings that creates it's own path.
Someone (Loren possibly) on the old thread mentioned that is was a necessary thing, but I didn't catch if they posted the reason or not. I think it was something like it'll make sense when you hear it. I haven't heard it yet.
What flying cars are you referencing ?
Robots,except for car factories or that cute Honda robot,never seen one like a Nexus 6? Or is it a joke?
Just saw the final cut of Blade Runner in the cinema,limited run,if it is in your city,go see it,nothing new but the print is pristine.Sure beats a TV.Not sure how many saw it in 1982 upon release on the big screen.After 25 years,it still holds up(except in 10 years time,we will not have flying cars or robots)
