- Lawrence English: Kiri No Oto
Some of this has lovely rich musical textures (like 3 openers),
but after that I find it inconsistent and often mindlessly noisy.

- Description Without Place: Filaments
Recommended listening after English.

Wouldn't be AS bad if sites only put up 64kbs versions of albums,
but putting up 320kbs versions is simply giving the album away
... making many labels wonder why they bother putting all their
time and effort into releasing this music. No surprise we are seeing
more cdr/download releases. Maybe in the future it will be only free
net releases ... with very little quality control,  embedded ads,
interspersed political slogans, and plenty of malware.

- Off the sky : Dwelling Spells

Yet another fine free release. At  http://www.zymogen.net
Last two tracks were especially enjoyable.

Jim
what exactly do you mean by 'multiple errors" ?
and does that mean the tracks don't play ?

Last night

- The Illusionist - which is 10 out of 10 in my book. Think this is my 3rd viewing. Excellent Philip Glass score.

Hi Richard
A lot of us were wondering where he went. No answers so far though.
I used to email with him regularly.

Gattaca - hadn't seen this since its release. Fine piece of work. Jude Law is excellent in it.

Thought I'd start a thread for films and related things people are enjoying
and might want to mention. Think of it like the Now Playing or Now Reading threads.

- I'm re-reading Sartre's little autobiography "The Words".  Charming thing.

- And finally reading "Foucault's Pendulum" by Umberto Eco. Been sitting around here for many years. Good so far.

Many thanks for posting, Joe. I always appreciate your observations.

I have indeed been working on more long-form and stylistically consistent pieces in all of my recent solo albums.

With this new TCR release I wanted to get back to an earlier expressive and a more dynamic style, like my early TCR albums, and with some darker/heavier tracks. But a return will always bring the present with it so there are, of course, elements of my recent works woven in.

I'd actually like to move TCR into a more rhythmic domain and separate it from the drone/noise-based style of Nunc Stans. But we shall see. These things are so unpredictable. In the end it's all about embodying a certain beauty and mystery, no matter how.

A brand new 5 minute unreleased track.
Much more in the early TCR style than my recent releases ... rhythmic, serious leads, berlin feel, its lively and it must be played up loud  :)

The Kingdom

(on windows, right click, save link as)
(or just click it and listen)

A little xmas treat.

Enjoy.
