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

Everything and Nothing / Re: Single disc CD players

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!
The Lost Pieces 4
Atmospheric Conditions
Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces
The Dream Circle

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

Air piano!  Gotta say, that's a new one.

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 Gdańsk" 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!)

Thanks Jeff!  I've been meaning to upload a summer piece
to balance the vibes out and this is a good reminder.

Hey - Is your avatar-photo from your performance when you
journeyed to play at the PiNG with Embrasing the Glass a few years ago???
That was a sweet set!

Everything and Nothing / Re: MP3 player - flash-based? Any good?
« on: August 18, 2008, 07:15:12 PM »
Yea - If you want the really high gigs, you currently need to go with a hard drive model.

Ambient-related-bonus points... Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters by Robert Calvert has some tracks with Brian Eno.

When I finally get a good control surface for my computer - I think I'll start falling in love with it as an instrument.

I very much like my Novation SL 25 :)
http://www.novationmusic.com/products/midi_control/remote_sl_compact/

It's nice to not always have to look at the computer screen especially when performing.


I'm also very happy my Novation SL 25 controller.
http://www.novationmusic.com/products/midi_control/remote_sl/

I don't use the AutoMap features - just program a set of controllers myself
for each main software instrument I use - which is tedious but far
more intuitive once it's all arranged to your own layout and preferences.

It's also a good MIDI controller (with 2 MIDI outs) for playing and controlling
hardware synths (or samplers) though I would have personally chosen wheels over the joystick.

Pre-show stress is bad enough without wrestling with the gear
and trying to find alternate solutions. I'm glad to hear that you
made it happen and the only casualty was the recording. More
incentive to do it again - although I have a theory that the very
best performances happen when the recorders aren't working.

The looper's Delight site and their e-mail list
