(Les Scott) - I make ambient music under the name Neu Gestalt on Alex Tronic Records. My first release on the label was "Altered Carbon" and "Weightless Hours" is released in June this year.
I've made a few one minute pieces for the Vox Novus 60x60 project over the last few years and feature in the 2009, 2010 and 2011 International mixes as well as a 2010 UnTwelve (microtonal) 60x60. http://www.voxnovus.com/60x60/60x60_Dance.htm
Over the last couple of years, I've also been making a few remixes for the Alex Tronic Records label, to which I'm signed and Nice'n'nasty.
What creative fields fuel your passion? (choose as many as needed)
ah, sorry, les, i'll see if i can reactivate it. there are other things up there that are certainly better, but bouncy logs has just had about 15 minutes removed from the middle where it distorted too much to be worthwhile. the perils of live recording, of course (and a general lack of attention, of course.)
Yeah, archive.org is great. They say there's 150 billion pages of information there. o.o
I work for "Ohio Cat Caterpillar" (Heavy Construction Equipment) parts exchange program. Almost all the machines we get through are new. So we don't really have to deal with breakdowns. Man...there is no words to describe the feeling of driving new heavy construction equipment...."the raw power"....it's amazing.
Yeah, ambiOfusion was great. One place I like to explore music and artists, is "archive.org". There's a lot of cool artists on there in the "netlabel" section. I've found a lot of awesome synth music. You might want to check that out if you haven't already.
I know what you mean about day jobs.....I hate getting up early. I have a night shift job, although working nights has it's drawbacks too. You miss out on a lot of things because you sleep all day. But, at least my job pays well....that kind of makes up for it. : )
Regarding those few students; Unless they exhibited a level of vehemence that crossed the line of annoying, I always tried to make a difference. I could tell which ones I'd had an affect on by the simple fact that they'd stop in just to say hello and show me their latest work. I appreciated their thinking enough of me to do that and I let them know it.
I've not been to the Eastern parts of Turkey. My times have been spent in Istanbul, and in that area including Sapanca and Abant. I've also been to Kaş (Where some of my images were part of an exhibition) as well as Kekova. On my list of places to see during future trips are; More parts of Istanbul, Cappadocia, Fethiye, Konya,, Eskişihir, Izmir and many other places. When I'm able to make it to Fethiye I plan on renting a car in order to drive up the coast to visit Kaş and Kekova once again because there is more I want to shoot there.
I'll post up some of my images shot during my three trips there when I'm able. I understand that those kind of changes are difficult to see. I've been hearing that in Cappadocia many of the cave homes are being turned into hotels and I can only imagine what kind of "damage" thats doing.
