Synthtopia just posted their reader poll for the 10 best daws in the world... 

So what's yours? It's a regular topic, but always fun to discuss again! 

I'm still kind of unhappy with Logic - it frustrates me whenever I work in it. I feel like I have to work too hard to find things.  Admittedly - if I worked with it more than twice a year - well maybe it'd be easier.  wink wink - smile.  :-)  I have FL Studio on a Win laptop for makin' beats.

He has a musical background and instrumental understanding that reaches further than you would expect. John plays instruments since his very early youth such as piano, trumpet, bass guitar, guitar, synthesizer and modular systems. He did uncounted live performances with his early bands and later in collaboration with other musicians of the electronic scene. Johns wide ranging knowledge and interest breaks open any category and genre. To give you a taste: He has got the vibe, he is the rhythm, he transports as a bass guitarist the flow to a modular system of Dub, and he variegates like on the trumpet a music of funk and soul, he dearly loves the piano and the spheres. For me John is such a fine musician.

Here are two live performances that i love and admire.

1. Live at the WNUR broadcast in 2003 with Vir Unis and James Johnson. You find more information about the performance here.

2. Live at the Miramer in 2001 with Vir Unis. More information about the performance you find here.

In a lifetime of being both a live musician and a perfectionist John obviously made very rarely recordings and releases. And…

Free song for the spirit of Thanksgiving...

Posted by Roy Mattson on November 25, 2014 at 7:07pm 1 Comment

This song was created in one sitting as an improvisation with no overdubs in the spirit of Thanksgiving. It is simple, but has a certain heartfelt beauty. It consists of one synthesizer sound and mostly electric guitar played using an e-bow. This music is free. if you like it, please enjoy it.
