Started pretty late for me, but heard some of the live show and enjoyed it !
Was also fun to hear tracks from Shadows on Water just before.

Good stuff, Jonathan.

Good luck with that, Jonathan. I hope to catch some of it.

Hi James.
No, I've had no reason to look at it.

The reaper forum is likely to have some info/comments on it though

Will certainly be interesting to see if they can pull the narrative threads together in a satisfactory way in so few episodes.

Murcof: Remembranza

Brilliant album. Preferred over the recent Cosmos ... an album that didn't quite come together for me in the end.

There was a bit of rioting on a few threads when the lights went out.
Just a few smashed windows and some stolen mp3's. Nothing serious.

- Dac Crowell: The sea and the sky

I've always enjoyed Crowell's work. Kinda rich minimalist with repetition.
Thanks to whoever pointed this out a short while back in this thread.

Thought I'd sing the praises of Reaper (DAW/sequencer).  Windows only (mac version in the works).
I recently permanently switched to it from one of the bigger, more expensive and bloated programs.

I've owned it for a year or so.
Its constantly being updated/improved.
It has a surprisingly small install, and loads projects really fast.
It can also run off a memory stick ... so is very portable.
Its inexpensive. It's stable. It has most of the features you'd expect from a pro DAW.
You can record audio or midi into the same track.
Its skinnable. It has highly flexible track routing.
VST / DX / rewire plugins.
Great audio quality and excellent automation.

And, most importantly, I find it works right for me.

Terrific program. Well worth checking out if you are in the market for such a thing.

It was an appendix episode, in more ways than one.

This just in. Review of Kwook: Skywave (Blue Oasis),
and some tracks this weekend on Star's End radio.

---------------------------

At first, it's hard to say why SKYWAVE (57'47"), the CD by Kwook,
sounds so nostalgic. Is it the occasional Mellotron sound? The
buzzing lead lines or sweeping synth pads? Or just the overall
electronic aura that seems to engulf this album? All of these
qualities (as well as a hint of IDM beats) and more make for a
captivating release. But it's more the positive attitude of this artist
that gives his music its nostalgic feel than any riff or melody.
Comprised of subtle yet beautifully varied tracks SKYWAVE
glows in transfixing simplicity. The piece "Sunspots" is a
standout. With its catchy bassline and melodious flute, it
produces an ample amount of momentum and intrigue. A
common thread throughout is the insertion of squelchy
short-wave radio fragments. These lost communications add the
sensation of floating through the ether and are used to great
effect in the lengthy title piece, which spans three tracks at the
end of the disc. Our friend Kwook believes that "sound is a
playground". His inventive approach, full of joy and clarity, makes
the journey new.

Tune in to STAR'S END this weekend for music from SKYWAVE
by Kwook

I'm a fan of Hallucinogen ... will look out for that dub remix.

--- Zenith: Zenith

Surely one of the most enjoyable albums since the birth of Aristotle.
And, if not, certainly one the best from the 90s.
Inoue/Vivanco.
Subtle ambient/sequences.
Doesn't put a foot (or measure) wrong.
