Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Gear: Studio shots by Deb

Julio- that's a stern looking fellow named J.S. Bach.   My parents had him on a pedestal at home when I was growing up - he fell into my hands.  He's kinda sentimental. 

My orangish Metropolis framed poster isn't showing in any of the shots.   

Got that handsonic off of James Jimmie Johnson from his secret lair.

Hey - fantastic!  This thread worked!

Great!  I'm glad Cinchel clicked with you.  He's a good egg as well as good musician.

I just finished "Cocaine Blues" - Kerry Greenwood.  Liked the "Miss Fisher Mysteries" tv show so much thought I'd try the first book ( 99 cents on barnes and noble to get you hooked... seems like the title come to think of it.... here - have a taste ) - so now reading the 2nd.

Hey thanks, Julio!  I did that in good old Visio.  Just wanted it to stand out - and equally feature Relaxed Machinery and DataObscura.  The timing was actually coincidental -but once I saw it was APK and Robert Davies - I wanted to promote both premieres and try to join them together.  In fact - Robert (and hopefully APK) is joining us in the chat tonight!

Thanks,

John

Just a bump up to remind everyone - this is featuring Robert Davies new album on APK's DataObscura label and Chris Russell's new album on my Relaxed Machinery album.

Also, on Sunday - the new Steve Roach on Projekt will spin... check the Drone Zone page for info.

Since I'm in recommendation mood... check out Chicago guitarist - Cinchel

http://cinchel.bandcamp.com/

Most of his albums are guitar / effects - wonderful textural drone.  I've been a fan for a few years now.  His newest is stripped bare - acoustic plus delay - no massive drones. 

Highly recommended!

Anguaji - Trigger, Happy { the demos }

http://anguaji.bandcamp.com/

Read the info about the fact this is a demo.  First track is very "beaty" - the rest chill out quite a bit.  I'm loving this - 4th listen.

Pinklogik - Syn-Metry

http://pinklogik.bandcamp.com/album/syn-metry

Here's what I tweeted after my first listen this morning:  "Water color smeared textural ambient - different from her usual beaty awesomeness."

Lykanthea x Savage Sister - Sundrowned

http://lykanthea.bandcamp.com/

My first listen tweet:  "ethereal floating ambient vocal lilting clouds"

Also check out Lykanthea's first track off her debut:  Aphonia.

No worries... when I have something to post I'll post it.   :-)

Note - both Chris and Robert plan to be in chat - which will be on the front page of http://relaxedmachinery.ning.com - during the show.  We've also had Rusty from SomaFM join us for chat - really a fun time.

If you can tune in to DroneZone to hear the new albums - that'd be great - even better - join us for chat!

I think it's sad when people leave. Forrest is a good egg.  I do find myself deterred from posting here very much - I almost always get a negative sounding post from one person in reply and it drives me nuts.  More than once I've been going to post and then decided... nah - I'll get jumped on as soon as I post.

Everything and Nothing / Re: World Cup ?
« on: July 09, 2014, 06:43:21 AM »
I'm not a sports fan in general... I don't follow any sports until it gets to that 'holy cow - it's an artform' level of the olympics, or the stanley cup, or world cup.  ...and then it's just the highlights now and then. 

I've enjoyed the world cup highlights a lot.  Tim Howard was a monster - well an octopus at least.  Germany yesterday vs. whoever that team was... I think they snuck in and wore Brazil's jerseys.  Wow.   

I do find football to be one heck of a sport - when it's exciting - it's exciting!  And how the heck do the athletes run up and down the field non stop for literally ever...?  Baseball you get a nice rest after every pitch.  Football (american) - the game itself is what...5 minutes total?  but takes 14 hours to play.   

Anyway... hats off to the World Cup - some amazing, and very artful, athletes.

Hey - I don't often cross post over here - but I know a lot of Igneous Flame fans around...  head over to http://relaxedmachinery.ning.com/ today - and click "THE DARKROOM" image at top... that will open a gallery of a ton of photos Pete has posted for us over at rM.

I think you'll enjoy them - you don't have to be a member to see them.
