I downloaded this to a flash drive and have been listening at work this week.
AEG is a wonderful soundtrip. I particularly love the first third or so and have
jumped back to listen repeatedly.

I'm big on the Kaoss Pads myself. Each one has its own personality.
The K3 is clearly the most advanced but the patches are usually quantized -
the K2 and K1 let you get in-between more often. Also, on my K3, the
ring modulator patch has a lot of carrier-breakthrough, so I usually go to
the K2 for ring-mod. Even with the K3 - I would definitely replace my K2
if anything were to happen to it.

Agree - I can use mine on my accoustic guitar and it worked on a friend's banjo too.  :o

"Cellardoor" by Solyaris.   Its solemn beauty has helped ease me into my workweek.

Everything and Nothing / Re: RIP Richard Wright
« on: September 16, 2008, 08:30:32 AM »
My favorite Pink Floyd album, Meddle, is probably the one Floyd album on which Wright is most prominent.  I've always thought he was underrated as a creative force in that band.

I'd argue (though not in an argumentative fashion) that Wish You Were Here displayed Rick's contributions most prominently (particularly in the back end of Shine On where several sections were dominated [probably too strong a word for him] by Rick).
Meddle/Dark Side/Wish You Were Here... What a legacy for an artist!

I enjoyed Rick's solo work as well - made a high-quality cassette with Wet Dream on one side and Gilmour's 1st solo on the other and it got lots of play on long drives and at home. (Can't say the same for Pros and Cons or The Final Cut for that matter.)
Damn - I was even a fan of those early wistful PF pop songs of his - loaded with melancholy: Paint Box, See-Saw, Summer 68...

Pink Floyd was my clear favourite band and Rick was certainly a huge inspiration for me. RIP Rick.

I wonder if guys like Paul McCartney, Elton John, or Rod Stewart, are still enjoying themselves when they go out on another tour, or if they're thinking "well, my net worth is only 700 million now, and if this tour goes well I can nudge that up to 750 million."

That's my plan too.   8)

Time to post a summer piece before the season is gone...

Her Terrain - (Scott M2, Jamie Todd)

This one is from a set dreamSTATE played way back in 2000
and, to me, has a late-summer, late-night vibe. See how you feel yourself.

For a long, long time I've had a desire to create an album of electronic versions of
Bruce Cockburn songs (Silver Wheels, Thoughts On A Rainy Afternoon...).

I almost never visited that section and so won't miss it myself.
Maybe you could put a link to a "Free for All" section on another board.   ;D

« on: September 06, 2008, 12:35:03 PM »
While my Technics SL-PD 887 5-CD Changer is still working fine,
when I want to pop in a single disc, I like to use my Pioneer DV-45A DVD player
which ALSO plays SACDs and DVD-A discs so I can wallow in the surround-sound
Diatonis or Bjork, Depeche Mode, Beck, Talking Heads, Miles, Bowie, Pink Floyd...

So many great covers... but five Steve Roach albums came immediately to mind:

day out of time - wow!

Very cool version - it evoked the vibe of a heavier Massive Attack track.

Re - The Shining

I found the hedge animals increasing activity to be the scariest part of the book
(perhaps because I was reading that part on Halloween night)
but they were replaced with the hedge maze - which was a BIG disappointment for me.
Again, if I hadn't read the book first...

If the film was made today, I suspect some CGI hedge critters would be no big deal to conjure up.

I sure loved those segments with the kid tooling around the hotel on his trike.
That's the power of a movie adding something to a book.

DUNE

But Dune isn't that bad. I've never read the books though so I can't compare them.

I would rather have seen the movie before reading the book - but that goes for so many book/movies.
The title and the cover kept me away from reading the book for many years, as I'm not fond of
"trudging across the desert/tundra" books, but when I finally picked it up, it kicked right in to mind-games
and political intrigues and I was drawn right in. The movie seemed like such a comic book afterwards.
Definitely give the first book a try and see how you like it.

Re- DUNE: Many, many years ago I read that Jodorowsky was planning to have
3 different bands create music for the 3 main planets:
Pink Floyd, Soft Machine and Tangerine Dream.
Damn!

Coming in late Sept. is the new "DAVID GILMOUR - Live in Gdañsk" double CD (plus DVD(s)).
There'll be a lot of overlap with his (excellent) "Live at the Royal Albert Hall" DVD
but he remains my favourite guitarist and I expect some good workouts from the last show of his tour.
(Plus there's a orchestra!)
