Re: How did you get into 'this' music

Great topic. I actually started to try and make a list of what I considered the most important musical experiences in my life, just for my own personal use/memory, but never bothered to finish. Here goes: 1989 - started playing drums, got my first drum set 1993 - attended first punk rock shows, join...

Re: FLAC/Apple lossless/mp3 converter

By far my favorite tool for all format/bitrate conversion needs (assuming you're a mac user, since you want apple lossless):

Nick Hennies - Lungs CD available now

My new solo album "Lungs" is available now. http://www.fullspectrumrecords.com/FS008.html A word about the music: "Lungs" was made entirely with drums and, with the exception of the title track which makes use of a microphone to create acoustic "feedback", is a completely acoustic album. A sample of...

Re: Carnality in improvisation

OTOH I ask myself if contemporary music became stuck. Is it a vanity zoo for spaced out freaks? Is it deadlocked in elitist rituals? Is there a real evolution? I am very worried about some retrogression in modern music and modern art too. That means in consequence: Has contemporary music (and art) ...

Re: Metal (the material not the genre)

Alvin Lucier's piece for solo triangle "Silver Streetcar for the Orchestra" is still fascinating to me even though it's been over a year since I first played it. The available recordings don't really capture what the piece is fully capable of, mostly because if you choose a really good instrument th...

Re: Annette Krebs/Taku Unami-motubachii (Erstwhile 058)

there is a trend, I detect, to use real life audio samples to create a musical illusion, an abstract drama, a reality that can't possibly happen. Whether it's a trend or not I don't know, but the subtle interplay between the various types of recording qualities on this album is endlessly fascinatin...

I heard it live and it's beautiful. Completely blurs the line between "natural" and "instrumental" sound.

Their show dates are all here:

They appear to just be doing TX shows and going back to Europe. They were meant to play a few months back but one member had a health issue, if memory serves. Excited to see them.

Re: Now Playing

(Untitled #74 is sourced from white noise) I thought this too until I listened to it on headphones at a pretty loud volume and suddenly realized the entire first section of the piece that sounds like very quiet white noise is actually rain forest recordings. Every so often you might hear something ...

Anyone in Detroit or Ann Arbor?

I'll be doing a brief tour around the midwest in late July/early August playing solo percussion stuff and was wondering if anyone on the board knew about decent places to play in Ann Arbor or Detroit. I have a couple friends in the area but none of them have been particularly helpful thus far. I'm g...
