Just classics …


(Lars Bjerregaard) #43

Let me fix that for ya…


(Lars Bjerregaard) #44

The best… I was at that concert. Ask me if it was good :wink:


(Paul Piko) #45

Was it good? :wink:

You have excellent taste in music :slight_smile:

I didn’t get to any of the early concerts, but I did go to New Blood (orchestra) and Back To Front (with the So band). Both amazing shows.


(Lars Bjerregaard) #46

It was very good :smile: Early Gabriel was very very special!


(Paul Piko) #47

Oh, that video broke… thanks for the new link


(Lars Bjerregaard) #48

Here’s a concert I never made it to, but should have. Just magnificent album. Saw them much later but it was not the same…


(Paul Piko) #49

I’ve seen video from Rockpalast, POV/Live in Athens and some other audience footage. It’s great you saw him live back then


(Lars Bjerregaard) #50

Ok, I’m on a roll. Let me rip it up for 'ya. Here’s one of the maestros (play it LOUD):


(Paul Piko) #51

Nice. That album has Here Comes The Flood. PG wasn’t really happy with the production and preferred this:


(Lars Bjerregaard) #52

Well… to be exact - the artist was Robert Fripp, and the album was Exposure. Your video is a nice version of PG’s Here Comes The Flood, that I hadn’t actually seen before. On Exposure, is a beautiful version of Here Comes The Flood, with Robert Fripp and PG playing. I think it’s gorgeous, the best one of all of them:


(Lars Bjerregaard) #53

… but let’s quit dilly dallying around and get to the real meat. The real esoteric stuff… Here’s “Tribe” by two masters (also to be played LOUD):


(Lars Bjerregaard) #54

Even more esoteric, by two other masters. If you can stomach this you’re elite :smile:


(Fractalgee) #55

That a new one for me, very cool!


(Paul Piko) #56

(Brad Smith) #57

AUTECHRE- NTS sessions #1 and AUTECHRE LIVE (in San Francisco)
Were they just on tour? I didn’t know that they played SF already this year…

Found this hundreds of tracks supply of ambient music in one place after following a link on a muff wiggler forum post, the ads are a bit annoying but free is always good. This seems to be the only style of music i can study to without being distracted too much. https://soundcloud.com/archives-5/tracks

My son has been participating in February Album Writing Month for years. I always learn something from his approach. This year he is using Olivier Messiaen’s Modes of Limited Transposition as a starting point.

FAWM’s goal is for people to write 14 songs in 28 days. Sometimes the tracks are just ideas, other times they are full works. It’s a way of motivating people, and maybe going outside the comfort zone. Some great collaborations appear too.

While he’s primarily a guitarist, this track is mellotron/string based.

Man, that is really good!

I’ve been listening to Laurie Spiegel’s “The Expanding Universe” (1980) on repeat for a few days now. Very inspiring, especially to someone with a penchant for minimalism, like me.

That’s 45 minutes of music. The version on Spotify has 2 hours 36 minutes of great music on it. Not sure what’s going on with that, but I’m loving every minute of it!
