My review of "Broadcast" CD by Spuntic

Databloem's Dennis Knopper is always very good in bringing into the map some new unknown names and Spuntic is certainly no exception in these adventurous explorations. Mehdi Saleh aka IX, the driving force behind Spuntic, is an Iranian soundscaper, based in Tehran, who belongs to the leading forces of the growing…

The enhancing quality of sounds

When i guide people to recall past life memories i use my tonality and intensity of my voice to direct their awareness. The verbal guidance must contain direct suggestions as well as the more subtle directions. But most of all it is the quality of my voice that do the job. The mind of the traveller is constantly oscillating between the logic and meaningfull aspects of mind and the non verbal sensations of feelings and physical sensations. similarly, when i listen to ambient soundscapes,certain… Continue

R.I.P. Edgar Froese of Tangerine Dream

Just announced today on Facebook by Edgar Froese's son Jerome....see below. Edgar's guitar work with TD was a massive influence on so much of what I do as a musician. I feel like I just got punched in the stomach. R.I.P. :(

"Dear friends & colleagues, the Captain has left the ship ... I'm very sorry to inform you that my father Edgar Froese passed away on Tuesday afternoon (20th of January) in Vienna. And as you already know: Life plays no encores. Rest in…

Ello Update

Paul Budnitz has just posted another update on Ello.  And this explains in a nutshell why I'm thinking moving to Ello might be the right move for us.  I've been talking to them about how to keep a smaller community integrated within the massive community Ello is becoming - and that's on their future development list. 

Media embeds work beautifully - no messing with code -  just post the link. That's it.  Magic. Bandcamp is still under development.  In fact - a song of mine  was in the…

some recent tracks

Hi. I'm not sure if I posted any of these, it's been a nutty last couple of weeks. Here are some new tracks that I've written in the last week or so.

This first one is the middle section of a 23 minute track I'm calling interlude.

The other three are from an album I'm calling reluctant dawn. Thank you for listening and for commenting.…

VST software synth quandry -- HELP!

I downloaded lots of free VSTs that I believe are VSTi or ambient instruments for pads, textures and such. I did not download any effects like chorus or reverb.

So far, my Cubase LE4 does indeed recognize them as valid and active plug-ins. But they appear nowhere when I try loading instrument tracks vs audio in tracks.


I haven't hooked up my microKorg or Akai Miniak as MIDI controllers yet since my midi cable to usb…

Guitarists: How Do Your Record?

I'm going to begin attempting to incorporate some guitar sounds into my recordings and am curious how those of you who use guitars go about it.  Do you record using a mic and amp or do you go directly to a DAW?

I don't have an amp yet and from what I'm reading it sounds like I will need to invest in an audio interface to get the sound into my computer properly.  I know I can run a cable from my guitar to the microphone jack on my computer, and then I've got Native Instruments Guitar…

Recent Spins

What's been playing lately?

Update: 1/22/15

Live: Chicago Symphony. Elgar: In the South (Alessio). Tone poem with a lovely viola melody in one section. Written on an Italian vacation, reportedly the composer's "sunniest work. Beethoven: "Emperor" Concerto. His more raucous and fun Fifth, though no less serious than anything else he composed. A lifetime favorite for these ears. Rachmaninoff: Symphonic…
