anything by vonnegut - nope everything by vonnegut

Come on, Jim, his older ones are a LOT better than the more recent.
But he is, for sure, a mighty fine read.

I think this should be If you could recommend 1 to 3 books (max).
Genres are a swine with suggesting only one book.

"How we can pretend afterward to make amazing music ... ?
to make art ... ?

Well, our art is largely separate from the more worldly, and very temporal, concerns of current political debate.
Music is not linguistic. Not in the same game.

Yes, that Rumforskning certainly has a wintery beauty ... and fits well with our current weather up here in Ontario. Heavy snow this morning !

I've been relaxing with

Giorgio, I think you have to consider what prompted Mike's action here.

As Loren just said, there was an "Free For All" section for politics and other things, and the last slew of postings there (on the US elections primarily) became abusive, adult partisan rantings rather than reasonable discussion, and were not the kind of thing we want to see on this forum. So Mike removed that sections and said if you want to talk about politics, go to some other suitable forum.

Your Vote post was, of course, harmless on your part, but the problem is when the discussion starts in that thread, as it likely would have, then the problems will simply start again.

Yes, its a shame to see this sort of censorship happen, but there are reasons for it in the forum's recent history.

I wonder if we could have a vote thread where comments are not allowed, only the voting ?

I wasn't convinced based on the sample I heard, so be interesting to see what you make of it, Joe.

The Opdahl was released on Jenssen's Biophon records:
http://www.biosphere.no/biophon_records.html
Same deep sea vents.
Its a mighty fine album, in a very Biosphere style.

1553
Sounds interesting, Danny.

Any reference here to the great Black Smoker album by Opdahl ?

t00nz:
Would be good to at least have a bit more description of the music
and who did it.

1556
Many thanks for the glowing response , Joe  :)

We didn't use a physical cello, but on the final track I was certainly
playing a synth that sounds like one. I do like those rich cello timbres.

We're surprised to not see more responses to Filaments yet.
Having distance from it now I can certainly say its way up there on
my favourites list.  Hopefully more people with check it out.

I think I'm more suited to developing a herbivore type of creature that moves around slowly and befriends plants, but I'm just having so much fun right now destroying everything that moves. 

You have mistaken your true calling  :D

My daughter said to me the other day: "Dad you have start this game, but go for carnivor, it looks like a lot more fun ... and less trouble."

By the way, I had named the tracks wrong initially ... they are correct now.

Now available from DataObscura:



Description Without Place: Filaments
Filaments brings together, for the first time, the field-recording & sample
manipulations of James McDougall (Entia Non) with the more synth-based
skills of Anthony Paul Kerby (The Circular Ruins, Lammergeyer, Nunc Stans).
The result is a remarkable and unified flow of creativity that is ripe with juicy sonic
details and moody atmospheres, and that is woven through with subtle melodic
threads. Contemporary, glitchy, detailed, and musically absorbing, this is a work
to come back to again and again.

Filaments was composed via long-distance collaboration - Australia to Canada.
Final compositions and mixing by APK.

tracks & samples:

- The Gold Tree Is Blue
- Physical World
- Nostalgia
- Cloister
- Sunday Morning
- Perifery
- She Conceals Herself

Available as either CD or Download encoded at 256kbs : DataObscura

A full track can be heard on the Radio page --  Here
Enjoy !

Thanks.
