Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Fascinating Effect Boxes
« on: October 03, 2008, 11:50:47 AM »
I have a Kaoss Pad 3 and use it a lot -- does stuff I haven't found elsewhere.
Plus it's just a ton of fun to play with.

Got me wondering what FX boxes people have that they really enjoy.
Especially boxes that do quirky, interesting things, or that you use in interesting and gratifying ways.

I'm only thinking of hardware here. Lets leave the crazy software world for another thread.

Quiet, relaxing drone evening here.
The butterflies piece is magical.

- Oophoi: Dust in the Wind (disk 1)
- Oophoi: Dream 5 - A flock of butterflies descends into a Zen garden.

- Philipp Weigl: Land and Water
- Philipp Weigl: Monsters

Thanks, Joe !

I'll have one in the morning mail.

Now available from DataObscura:

The Winterhouse: Lost
Follow-up to the acclaimed debut album, Slow Promises, by the combined talents of
Robert Davies and Anthony Paul Kerby (The Circular Ruins, Lammergeyer, Nunc Stans). 
The drone mastery of Davies is overlaid with Kerby's melodic subtlety and sonic creativity
in an organic, addictive, and flowing musical narrative. Lost stands as another testament
to the power and depth of contemporary ambient music and its ability to open remarkable
sonic vistas and moving landscapes.


- Lost
- Leaving
- Solitary Lives
- The Four Corners of Night
- Clearing

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

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

Please have a listen.

Thanks !

Everything and Nothing / Re: Do you speak English with an accent?
« on: September 26, 2008, 01:40:30 PM »
I don't think there is an unaccented english.
And its natural, psychologically, to think of your personal accent as the norm.
But knowledge is comparison, and until you compare you don't see how your accent is just one among many, and not the standard.
In England there are varying accents about every 100 miles.
Of course, it good that we have the Queen ... so everyone can know how english really should be spoken.

I eventually grew bored with Hamonia Mundi,
and switched to

- Max Richter: Songs From Before
he knows what he's doing.

followed by
- B J Nilsen: The Short Night
which is always excellent (in the noise-drone arena).

Yep, its really annoying when a place hammers you for shipping.
I had the same trouble with Groove in Holland.

Everything and Nothing / Re: But what does the family think?
« on: September 19, 2008, 01:31:20 PM »
My parents are dead. I have brothers in England I never see. So no issues there  ;)

My daughter, now 13, has developed a fine taste for both ambient and lounge/glitch/beats. Big Biosphere and Kettel fan.
My wife recognizes stuff, sometimes enjoys it, and doesn't tell me to turn it down too often.

I compose and play keys in a separate studio room, so don't annoy people with my fairly constant playing/recording.

Yep, I pretty much read everything Banks writes, sci-fi and non-sci-fi.
Wasp Factory was one of his first, and quite remarkable.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Where would you rather live?

The thing I most miss since leaving England and moving to Ontario, Canada, is the sea.
Life is not right without being at or very near the sea.

I love it out on the New England coast. 
Haven't been to north of Boston or to Maine yet, but plan to check that stretch out.
I'd happily move to Rhode Island somewhere. Great place.
