Hi Carl! Welcome to the H. Forum. You give Buffalo a good name.

Thanks, Scott. I listened to your links that you posted. Very, very nice. I agree with Modulator. I would love to play the Ping someday.
The problem with live recorded music is that it is no longer live when it is a recording. That must seem like an obvious thing to say and perhaps you completely disagree with me Scott, but listening to live music when it's not played live is a very different experience from listening to live music as it is being played.
There's something about being in a room with a lot of people, and experiencing a "performance" where musicians are able to interact with the group. Most bands have sets and play lists so the effect is minimal, but it's often still noticeable. With electronic, free form, abstracter music the effect is far greater though, almost like being outside in nature, part of a group wandering.
Yet, and having said that, I really do like listening to your work even if it's a recording. It's obvious you're also wandering while you where playing and not following a predefined path. I say obvious, but that's how it comes across, maybe you DID plan very well (and in that case, very good too).
Somehow, the tension of a live performance (where will they go next, where are we now?) comes across well in these samplings.
I also like how as one layer of attention and sounds goes away, there is a shimmer of sound behind it...often the point where you fade out the track and I think...ahhh...I wish I was there to hear where they go next. I especially like her_terrain, sounds modern and old at the same time, I really like it.
Thanks for sharing these!
Traveling through the Rockies on the Alberta side I fantasized about having
an A-frame studio perched on a mountainside - but eventually realized that
the influence of the mountains would transform my music into one long timeless drone...
I'd form an all Ted Nugent cover band!
I agree to Antdude to his statement try adding some water to the tin.
