You're in. We leave orbit on the first. The Next-Next Generation...

BTW - That was a sample supposedly actually used in the first Trek series.

I also heard that the little spinning/rubbing/bowing disks would wear out too
and it's kinda hard to get replacements.   E-bow = no moving parts!   :)
However... Gizmo = up to 6 notes at once

Anyway, the point is it doesn't take talent or a lot of money, just a lot of reverb.  Take me for example... I just alike all the blinky lights and pretend I'm Cap'n Kirk half the time.

Uh-uh, Jesse,

No WAY are you going to get away with insinuating that you have no talent! You are one of my very favorite ambient musicians EVER, & I think that your music is WON-DER-FUL! (Besides, it takes a HUGE amount of talent to make all those blinky lights & reverb sounds work for ya')!

(That is all. Beam me up, Scotty)... ;)

Feedback Mike - The yellow text doesn't work against the default forum format background.

An under-rated Morrison album that I'm very fond of is Inarticulate Speech of the Heart.
It's quite simple and just beautiful - there's a Mark Isham influence happening (with a hint of ambient). It's from a three album series
with Isham in the group and it's a favourite period of mine: Common One, Beautiful Vision and Inarticulate Speech.

A recent DVD release of Morrison live at Montreax is also highly recommended. Mark Isham again, just on trumpet,
and a fine band with Pee Wee Ellis, strong arrangements and Morrison in a good mood (not a certainty) and in fine voice.
There's a sample here:

If you love Morrison, it's a must.

The secrets of the Diatonis sound revealed!

Looking forward to your forthcoming release: Ambient Graffiti!

Gee - I thought you'd be cutting back on all that now that you're married.
Ahhh you crazy free-lovin' Americans!

Hi Joe. I've lost a good friend and some relatives to suicide. Deep depression can be well hidden,
although the burden of hiding it creates more strain and suffering. I still miss my friend.
I'm sure I missed clues from him but he didn't talk to me directly about it. We carry on.
My sympathies to you and his family.

I watched/listened to a large chunk of the live disc from the Heima DVD earlier today.
Very beautiful... shot on film and with regular cutaways to lovely Icelantic scenery
and a wonderful variety of locations for each piece.


Hey, I've have a DSS-1, too.  It's gathering dust under my couch, because I have no room for it in the bedroom.  I've actually been keyboard controller-less for some time because of space restrictions, but have been enjoying it in a perverse sort of way as a kind of challenge.  I think the last chord I played on a keyboard was probably on a piece 5 or 6 years ago.


It's interesting that a significant part of this thread, so far, is artists talking about what they don't use.

I miss having the main location jump links - ie:

[ Hypnos Forum ] > The Wide, Wide World > Everything and Nothing > This new SMF forum

at the bottom as well as at the top of each page. (I rarely used the drop-down menu option - although maybe it's time for change.)

Can they be duplicated down here without much extra work for you? 

I was just listening to Dark Edges this morning/afternoon (Saturdays!!!). It's darker than many Diatonis works
and is filled with shifting, rumbling glaciers of sound and stretches of rhythmic percussives. Highly recommended
and you can get it for free!  (I had ordered my copy, which has the surround-DVD plus a redbook stereo CD, through CD Baby.)

Believe me, I'm as sorry as anyone about the loss of legacy Forum content... if I was just going to start fresh like this, I could have saved myself a couple dozen hours work and just done that at the beginning.

But I'm trying to remember, this place will fill up quickly with new members and new content, and the most interesting old ideas will be brought up here again, I think.

I thought that the Wayback Machine might help - but no go.*/

PS... I'm viewing the new forum at work on IE6 using "smallest" text size
and everything seems clear and legible (with my glasses on).

I like the current colours - steely blues with just a hint of Mother of Pearl.   :)

I would normally say Tangerine (see separate topic) but Mother Of Pearl remains my fave Roxy track.

IMO Test Topic has never recaptured the quality of work they created
in the 70s and early 80s - up to and including Underwater Moonlight.
They remain an inspiration however!   ;D
