I am listening to Nostalgia- Yanni
Fernando Espí's rendition of Tango, 'Maria'. My favorite so far. Has a real dignity and emotion, unlike other versions which sound like elevator muzak.
Yeah, we may have talked about this before. I'm not particularly fond of his music, it's just heavily loaded with ubiquitous, dispensable ornamentation, with uninteresting harmonics. I do like other French composers, though, like Rameau and Duphly. Their music, to me, is more interesting and exciting.
A post by syntaxianus reminded me of this ambient dub I used to listen to in high school. Curious to see what think'stow, m8.
Mt Eden also did a decent amount of drum and bass, but I had virtually no concept of the genre's potential until I heard something like Aphex's Vordhosbn, that is a master work.
Not that keen, hemo but I'm not really keen on ambient so it's likely that what's putting me off.
Can't say I blame you for that, although it's a little surprising given your proclivity for the sober lutemasters. What about stuff that's easy to listen to, like bossa nova?
Ye. The latin stuff is good.
Pete Voss makes belts now in a shed at the top of his garden. I keep meaning to buy one but they're pricey little things.
Was on the fence till I heard the organ at :38. Sounds a bit like Madness (not the vocals).
Here's an extraordinary track by Alice Coltrane, John's second wife, playing the piano as only a harpist can. Could listen to that subminor seventh for a hundred thousand years, friend.
Do you play an instrument, Hemo?
Have a keyboard, but I'm very much an amateur. Accordion also, but I didn't bring it to my new place so not much practicing going on.
Good stuff, though you should keep your hobbies up.
I've been playing lute an hour every night since June. I haven't picked the classical guitar up since then. The synth, I had to sell after losing my job along with my mountain bike.
Nice. I myself like Astor Piazzolla's works
Genesis secundum Ovidium.
Placet! It's kinda magical.
