Other Ambient (and related) Music / Keith Emerson
« on: March 11, 2016, 01:53:57 PM »
"Welcome my friends to the show that..." well, has ended.  Just had a news
flash on the Bbc website that Keith Emerson has died aged 71. :-[  Sad news
indeed. No doubt we''ll continue to lose our musical heroes from the 70s at an
accelerating rate.  At least we have a rich legacy of recordings and videos of
live shows featuring flying keyboards.

Time to play some Tarkus.

The second episode of this docudrama was aired on Monday in the UK.  When
O.J. accedes and meets Johnnie Cochran in the jail, there is some familiar
ambient music playing, but I couldn't name that tune. Did anyone else recognise
it please?

Vangelis has composed a musical accompaniment to 12 hours of neurosurgery
instructional video.

The bit I've heard thus far is spacey ambient.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / CDrs are warped
« on: February 09, 2011, 04:57:21 PM »
In the last couple of week I've been trying to play several of my
Umbra/Penumbra Collection CDrs.  Specifically those in 18x14cm plastic
wallets with art, the disc in another sleeve, sometimes with leaves and
shells.  "Special packaging" Gigi calls it.  The first half plays fine but after
half anhour the music is distorted with a periodic glitch.  While some of you
might appreciate the industrial ambient generated, it rather ruined the likes
of Floating on Night Currents for me.  :(  The disc looks fine. However,
placing it on a flat surface revealed that disc is concave (label upright).

They had been stored vertically but closely packed.  So this is a word of
warning.  Has anyone else experienced this sagging?  How do other Oophoi
fans keep their CDrs?

Can flatness be restored, say by placing discs horizontal between lots of heavy
textbooks for an extended period?

Everything and Nothing / Ambient music of the spheres?

Here's computer-generated ambient music based upon the periods of
the major and two dwarf planets.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Maybe They Will Sing for Us Tomorrow

Has anyone heard the latest release by Hammock called Maybe They
Will Sing for Us Tomorrow
?  I gather it's more ambient than earlier CDs.
