Im thinking I should consider getting a turntable.....gosh what do you call them today.  WHen I had a HiFi system as a teenager they were called record players because thats what you put on them to spin.  Are they still being made today! Ha Ha.

As I have never lost the "desire" for physical product, I continue to purchase more physical cd's than downloads....stranger in a strange land. What rubs me the wrong way so to speak is when labels offer vinyl and digital only, no cd's.  A vinyl record is a beautiful thing that I have fond memories of, yet Im not sure I want to go down that road again.  Certainly vinyl records are desirable in audiophile circles because with the right system it does sound better than digital cd's but that another discussion.

So labels....what gives!

Actually I remember the the various record cleaning devices I would lovingly use to ensure a click and crackle free listing experience. There was a certain ceremony to playing a vinyl record, dare say ritual like compared to the instant now of today.

I understand the rebirth, but I coming across a growing population of vinyl + digital only releases that actual prevents me from buying the music. I don't want digital downloads and as vinyl comes back and cd's dwindle we seem to be working towards a look, touch, feel & listen paradigm once again...thats a good thing

What sort of annoys me is my system is digital soft and hard.  Im not set up to put a turntable in the studio and my living room hifi is decent but nothing compared to the studio sound.

I suppose Im just a soul reluctant to adept to changing times or revisit days gone bye.

DeepWarmth - Nature 2 (Ambient, Drone, Techno)

Posted by James Shain on February 26, 2015 at 5:44pm 0 Comments

The first of 3 Cd releases of 2015 is coming out this Monday. Being released by Run On Recordings as a limited 100 copy Cd run + Digital, Nature 2 continues the Nature series with more Drones melded with beatwork. This time around 3 of the tracks have a more upbeat techno-ish beat to them, while still focusing on the Ambient sounds and ending with 2 very Ambient leaning tracks. The official post for the album includes a preview mix of the 5 tracks. This is a series that I'm quite proud of. That I could take an experiment and actually create more in the style when I thought I never would again.

Tracklist:

01 - Sunrise

02 - Trees

03 - Warmth

04 - Clouds

05 - Caves

Five Questions for Artists of All Types, All Levels

Posted by John K-N on February 26, 2015 at 8:14am 2 Comments

:interrobang: Five Questions for Artists of All Types, All Levels :interrobang:

last weeks answers were phenomenal - thank you! ]

Whether you're a musician, writer, painter, sculptor, designer, toy maker, baker, candlestick maker, animator, re-animator, coder, photographer, scientist, gif maker, etc. etc. etc... here are five questions that I'd like to know about you. A lot of people have said they aren't artists - yes you are! In your own way - everyone does something creative.

As with your art - there are no right answers... only your answers. Feel to elaborate at length.

  • What is your favorite tool? Why? (a tool can be a pastel, pencil, piano, 3d printer, ingredient, camera, software, hardware, etc...)

  • You probably have one art you focus on - what are your #2 and #3 artistic passions? (What I mean is ... I'm a musician, but when I'm not feeling the music, I take photos... and sometimes I draw.)

  • How has the internet changed your art?

  • What's the advice you give to someone who asks you how to go into the type of art you do?

  • Pick 5 words that describe your art.

you can answer here or at ello:  https://ello.co/johnkochnorthrup/post/xCEZETsG5UyKI6py7oodYQ
