Immersion - It sounds like you believe that Mr Roach should have a day job too
and make music in his spare time - and that, therefore, works like "Mystic Chords"
should not exist.

This is just personal experience - so don't sue me when your studio goes China-Syndrome
but while I did have an electrician add a properly grounded outlet set to my studio
(went outside the house in a conduit from the breakers in a faraway part of the house)
For many years I've had to isolate the 3rd prong on some of my gear to eliminate hum.
ie: my Moogs and computers - including the laptop which I'm typing on right no#^*#&#%HHGUG878%#$^(&)&@&(___@&&_. . .  :o

Honest to God - that power-pop-rock-ballad thing they called a theme
for the last TV Trek used to inspire me to turn off the TV.

Monday morning work starter was Love Cannot Bear by Mr Fripp (Less screechy pitch-shifter than on some of his other Soundscapes series - a nice one)
followed by Tainted Bare Skin by Ron Boots to up the energy into some Berlin-school (last track (in a dance style) had a bit too much NRG)
followed this afternoon by more Berlin - Chris Franke's London Concert which was a pretty darn slick production - I think his producer was the other player at the show.

Welcome to the working week sonics today:

On the transit -
Aidan Baker - Songs of Flowers and Skin - Thick, gooey, gazey songs of...

At the desk -
V/A - The Ambient Expanse - Probably my most-played ambient compilation.
Automatic Fats - Molasses Springs - High cholesterol, head-nodding, dubby trippiness.

Pure Heat is still up for grabs!

Any idea if the CDr is just in a clear plastic sleeve or in a jewel case with booklet?

Enjoyed the track - but the critters in the garden sounded like they came from somewhere South of Heaven.

Monday morning work starters:

On transit: Joni Mitchell - Don Juan's Reckless Daughter - Very fine music with a very midrangy production.
Feist - Open Season - Enjoyable remixes.

At work with coffees: Stars of the Lid - Per Aspera Ad Astra - Very nice but a bit bothersome when the strings come in much louder on Anchor States. This would be a non-issue on vinyl (separate sides).
Circular Ruins - Retrospective 2009 - A consistant musical vision across a decade of work.

i've encountered this problem with that set as well. weird thing is that it plays on cheap cd players like module systems and walkmans but not on pc's or higher end gear.
btw: is sombient a sublabel of asphodel? i recall that they were tryibg to make it a subgenre of ambient (and i loved their definition - plunderphonics!.)

Hi Jim - On the origin of plunderphonics -

How sad for the world to lose another artist still filled with such vitality.

Hi Steve - I've kept a U220 around if only for the strings and choirs. They're just beautiful.

The Winterhouse "Lost" happened to be the next disc into my player after Wollo's.
Coincidence or Surge in the Collective Unconscious towards an APK Planet?

My Monday morning welcometotheworkingweek starter was also Sound Symbols by Numina - lush atmospheres to ease into.
Now playing - Emotional Landscapes by Erik Wollo.

Particularly like when the squeegee synth comes in.  ;D

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Korg Nano Midi Controllers

I wish they had midi too as I need a small controller for my mini live setup

The Novation ReMote 25SL is about the size of your Nord Modular
and has USB plus MIDI IN, THRU and 2 OUTs and can be used without a computer.
Lots of knobs & sliders with 2 long programmable readouts.

I haven't tried this even smaller version - but I like that it has wheels instead of a joystick, though just one MIDI IN and OUT.

I'd buy one in a flash if they actually had a MIDI out as well as USB. (One will probably end up in my live setup someday anyway if I can find a few spare inches.)

Thinking further:

You could follow a large car in smaller one to create an echo effect - with the delay time adjusted by how close you're tailgating.

An electric car would probably be best for recording purposes.

A long stretch of highway with the riff from Radar Love embedded would probably be pretty popular.
You could put in a toll booth.  ;)

Harry - You could drive back and forth like a scratch-DJ!
