On tonight's program, I wrap up the feature artist of the month by playing a couple of my favorite tracks by Steve Roach.
I'll also be playing more selections from the Aural Films Shoemaker Levy Nine collection, including tracks by Lunar Navigational Systems, Playman54, Meho and a track by your host.
I hope you'll be able to tune into the program tonight at 11 PM central time on www.stillstream.com/
Thanks for listening.
Galactic Travels Playlist #903 for July 24, 2014.
On this show, I continued the month-long focus on Ron Boots. The Featured CD at Midnight was "Liquid Structures in Solid Form" on Groove Unlimited Records.
As promised in my last post, I am including pictures of the task of swapping out tuners for fancier, more expensive tuners.
My Gibson SGJ sported Kluson Deluxes with black tuning pegs, but left something to be desired by letting certain of the strings go out of whack after every song. So I bought a set of gold Kluson Wafflebacks, which they put on all the vintage Les Paul customs, ES335s, and SGs.
Step One, removing the old tuners:
Step Two: Pressing in new bushings (adapter bushings with 10mm outer radius)
Step Three: Filling in old screw holes from previous tuners with wood putty.
Step Four: Drilling new screw holes and installing Waffleback tuners.
Comparing new and old, side by side.
Finished project, front, back, and full view.…Continue

Just finished the new commission for NME Cultura Eletroacústica Linda - a 14 minute quad work called Flora of Fynbos - it will be published on CD but if you want it you would have to grab one sooner than later - there will be only a limited number. Concert premiere is August 9 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Now I am turning back to working on four different projects - not sure what order they will come out. But, one will drop in February of 2015 for sure. Two of the others may be done before the end of the year.
WHEN YOU'RE THAT BIG, COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT DOESN'T GO UNNOTICED
The YouTube star "continues to willfully infringe in blatant disregard of plaintiff’s rights of ownership," the suit claims. So far the company's lawyers have found "over 50 examples of blatant copyright infringement." Now Ultra wants a court to step in and grant an injunction prohibiting Phan from using its music. It's also seeking "either maximum statutory damages of $150,000 for each infringed work or unspecified damages to be…
Each week Tom Whitwell of Music Thing highlights the best of the new music gear that's coming out, as well as noteworthy vintage equipment:
Music lessons at my old school consisted of a few shakers, a piano, and an old guy talking about Mozart. In France, things are very different. This awesome-looking psychedelic synth is the reason why there are so many cool French electronic musicians. It's the latest version of Le Cybersongosse, a series of synths developed at the Institut International de Musique Electroacoustique de Bourges. They've been used to teach French kids about recording technology and synthesis since 1973. This one is a hardware control surface connected to a G5 running MAX/MSP, the musical programming language developed in Paris at the IRCAM research institute, and now used by techno musicians like Aphex Twin. For basic lessons, kids use just the controller with a microphone. More advanced lessons are taught with a touch tablet and a monitor. When I first mentioned the Cybersongosse on Music Thing, the response was immediate and unanimous: "Never mind the French kids, where can I buy…
