Listening: Podcasts, Mixes, and Music Sample Clips / Cannibal Box
« on: October 25, 2009, 01:46:14 PM »
A bit different than most of what I've listened to through this forum, and not "typical" ambient - Cannibal Box is a cappella and can be heard at

Thanks for listening.


I wasn't familiar with Caul music beforehand, and info is rather hard (for me, at least) to dig out of the web. I've no idea which of the tracks on that page are the most recent five but, in general, I like 'em all.

My favorites are Mirare (love the unleashed awe(?) angst(?) that comes in near 1:20), Aglaia (the bass line and the drawn out tones are perfect together, and I consider any instrumental to be good if I start improvising a vocal melody the first time I hear it), and Aery (I imagined myself standing on a nighttime hilltop with swirls of benevolent turbulence for company).

I was especially taken with the control and emotion in the long tones throughout. And I liked the "rock" feel some of the tracks have. Nicely done.

Is that an actual acoustic bass in Fulgent?

I'm only two tracks into it, but it's quite nice. Very "deep-water aquatic". Thanks for sharing the link.

I've just watched/listened to this three times in succession.

It is so beautiful.

Richard would have been impressed.

I've recently taken control of my name on and have added a few
tracks to what has been scrobbled by other folks (my sincere
appreciation for those of you responsible for those scrobblings). One
of the new pieces, the first set from my Valetine's Day gig, is
available for the first time anywhere. Everything on is
freely downloadable (well, one track isn't).

Thanks - a bunch - for listening.


That's a sweet piece of music, Scott. You really are making it tough on those of us who can't get to Toronto to see you all play.  :'(

I do occasionally, but I can never remember to listen in real time - so I appreciate that the shows are posted for a few weeks after-the-fact. I like his selections (for the most part), his segues, and the fact that his voice is broadcast at the same volume the music plays.


I'm a bit (!) late to this thread, but I listened to all swells and billows i today and felt the need to comment. I live in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and the mix was excellent company whilst walking the trails near my home. Thanks a lot, Alan - and if round 2 is "darker", I'm especially looking forward to it.


Mmmmmmm -- very, very nice. Just what I needed after a long day in the warehouse.

There have been some very interesting musical offerings by members of this forum. Hopefully, some of you will find that description fits this piece.

Embracing the Glass is a duo - we've been working together since 2001. "Visit Your Rock Garden" is from 2003. Stylistically dated in some ways to what we sound like now, but unique in its own way too. One of those edgy, be-careful-looking-over-your-shoulder tunes.


Mmmmmm... I like this, Scott.

I keep getting a picture of someone dreaming peacefully with an "outside" influence trying to get through to the subconscious.

That said, it loops very nicely with Dead of Winter. I'm already looking forward to the next piece.


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

Cool! Looking forward to hearing it.

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

Yessir, it is. Thanks for the compliment - we had a memorable time in a great club with wonderful people.

Beautiful piece, Scott. It easily conveys a picture of your description. I'm bummed I didn't get to see the two of you play before I moved west.



Interesting. I auditioned it back-to-back with dreamSTATE's "In the Dead of Winter", and "Preemptive Considerations" works quite well as the 2nd piece.

What did you use in place of keyboards?

Hi Chad:

Interesting sounds you have there. I like the minimal approach - went especially well tonight with the background traffic noise from the nearby interstate.

Is that a brass instrument through a delay carrying the melody in "3 38"? The gender of the voice in "8 15" -- female?

When I have a computer connected to the internet that will run Flash without crashing the browser, I'll look at your videos. Wish I lived close enough to Normal to partake of your show in September.

Thanks for the Electroland reminder. I hadn't listened to it for a couple of years - forgot how much I enjoyed it.
