Yes, Lisbon is a wonderful city. Both charming and intriguing. The people too.

Night Train to Lisbon  --  Not read the book, but the movie was excellent.

I've taken the night train from Paris to Lisbon.
That was one long train ride.

Jaja - Music For Space Observation

Indeed ... this is a lovely release.
Subtle and restrained drone ambient, but always evolving, and so beautifully controlled.

There is a flowing openness to the first track. A darker majesty to the second - Earthrise over the moon.
And a wonderful, almost eerie, deep space feel to the third. Like being aboard a huge empty craft drifting
lost at the very outer reaches of the universe. Excellent !

You can only trust your ears. And make things sound how you want. How you enjoy it.
There is no such things as what a drone frequency is and what to do with it.
Timbre, depth, tone.
It is case by case.
We are not dealing here with an 80s pop tune with the standard studio settings for bass, drums, vocals, etc.
No formula. No set style.
No one type of drone.

It appears not much is happening, and yet it is so full of tension and a very particular emotion.

Yep, that's really nice music, Jaja.
Dub and Detroit ... minimal techno. When done well it is excellent.  8)

Hi Harry. I envy you the Easel. Tis a thing of great beauty and individual expression.
Tad too expensive, for sure. But, ignoring Eurorack, the only synth I have wanted in recent years.
It's a work of art. Visually.

The Arturia is a reasonably satisfying substitute. Certainly capable and inventive.

I also wanted the Roland AIRA System 1M for quite some time, which I just bought.
It is a lovely little thing.
Like writing on roughed up vellum. Drawing on partchement. So personal and minutely expressive.
Sorta eurorack, but still understandable ... and relatively inexpensive.

Yes.
It's based on a synth from the early 70s.

A hardware version is still available, but around $5,000 US.
