Re: Where to go after Alvin Lucier for 'resonance music'?

Surprised nobody has mentioned Jason Kahn yet; for me his discs "Miramar" and "Sihl" are milestones in the genre/style/whatever we're talking about (though he has plenty of other great releases, of course). It uses the sound world of Lucier's experiments with resonance and the physicality of sound i...

Re: NEW L'innomable JÜRG FREY: Metal, Stone, Skin, Foliage,

nice! what are the percussion instruments in the "quartet"? i'll keep an eye out for this at best buy. I'll see if I can remember them all! The four players are all mostly in unison (or at least performing a similar type of activity) and always playing on the same instruments/type of material: tria...

I got some very good advice from another engineer friend too who also suggested the use of omni mics rather than directional ones (among many other great ideas). I'll be sure to let you gu...

I'm trying to record a long section of a piece that involves playing very high notes on the vibraphone at a pretty high volume. When I do this I can hear very pronounced lower difference to...
