"The 2003 track, it's beautiful.. especially deeper into it..as you go along it gets more, like naturally ethereal or takes on the essence of high vibrations of some alien temple. Yes!"

Featuring a friend and great musician: John Koch-Northtrup

Posted by Jaja on November 26, 2014 at 12:58pm 6 Comments

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.

Thoughts: Volume 34 - feeling melancholy

Posted by John K-N on November 24, 2014 at 1:19pm 13 Comments

I periodically step back and think about things in my life and what I do. What makes me happy, what makes me stressed, what moves me, etc... 

I'm in one of those moods. This seems to happen when I've been sick with breathing problems for too long - and this is one of those times.

Relaxed Machinery - the label.  

Making me extremely happy.  I love it.  I have great partners in Geoff and Steve.  We also have Joel who's just a peach helping out.  I work with great artists, I enjoy helping them get their music out there. I enjoy the fact that I don't have to do accounting. There's a massive team effort behind every release and all four of us + the artist do our part to make each release happen.  

Sometimes rM the label stresses me a bit - but hey!  That's normal.  I have every intention of keeping the label up and running for many years / decades to come. Times will change - formats - etc...  but I don't plan to stop helping others release.

Relaxed Machinery - the community.

Where we are now. I go back and forth on this. If ning wasn't breaking - I'd be such a happy camper, but it is. Every other day or week we get something else going wrong.

I have until next summer to truly decide. I'm pondering installing an app for our community on my webhost.  (you've seen me mention "jamroom" several times - I like that one).  

BUT!  Do I *really* want to be responsible for the entire site?  Here on ning - if it breaks it breaks and I know ning will eventually fix it (seems to take a week now instead of hours).  

So I'm kind of thinking about that.  I really don't want to be the guy fixing the server when we suddenly can't post here.  I want a site that maintained and already running. I'm fine with paying for it - we pay nearly $250 here a year - and it'll be $300 next year. There's got to be somewhere else for us out there.  

I think I'm vetoing me running our site. it's…
