We already have fresh new music that requires skill to play, and possibly skill to fully appreciate (although much of it may still be appreciated, even without much skill).
I think there's something of a problem in insisting that some of the music we have out there isn't quite scholastic enough to be considered for study.
This is balderdash, frankly.
Certain older pieces of rock music, rhythm & blues, and other such music has managed to pass the test of time. At least well enough to see that they will likely endure to the 100 years mark. I think we should take the time to really study those pieces of music now, without waiting for that point in time to consider it worthy of study (if scholastics would consider this music even then).
We get so enamoured of the past that we forget that we're making more of it every day.
a weekend of EBM.
Pain - cute video.
Mon Jul 07 2014 02:26:52 PM EDT from Freakdog @ Dog Pound BBS IIFloyd has released two albums since Waters' departure: A Momentary Lapse of Reason in 1987 and The Division Bell in 1994.
Learning to fly is nice. Dogs of war is pretty damn good though. Not saying anything new to us in this day and age, but was interesting for the time it was released.
That is my robe man. Cute.
There are a few on YouTube but I don't think it is the same as the BBC version.
so this happenes when you lend away your tectronix:
(the evoke was right next to my place)
realy like dixiland.
At first, I thought this was by Freddy Mercury. Then I got a better look at the name, and thought, "No, certainly not Mercury."
Is this Dixiland? I thought Dixiland sounded differently... but I'm probably mistaken.
It's certainly a cheeky tune.
I always wished Imagine would have been more like Louis Armstrongs "What a wonderful world" in its tone. There is something I want to like about it, but it seems somehow a bit air-headed. Either that, or I am :-)
Heh, suppose so. Just wanted it to be more positive, instead of a laying down. A poet / writer should help with that and not necessarily take the easy path. I figure that is one of my biggest gripes about religion in general, but I will continue that discussion in the more appropriate room when the conversation turns that way.
Oh, I rather like the notion of Imagine as a dark, gritty tune with overtones of the apocalypse.
Rather "high end" - I'm going to be using it for composing original orchestral music, so the device has to be capable of handling sound-fonts imported from sound-font libraries (commercial and freeware).
Obviously I am looking for a low-latency device where you attach speakers/amplifiers/etc to the device and not to the computer.
Pro quality. And within reason, cost is not an issue.
Without a doubt, you want to look at M-Audio's line of products which do exactly what you're describing. I've never heard a musician dissatisfied with them.
They make them in two, four, and eight channel versions.
I am looking for a "gadget" that will take my orchestral score (on screen) and play it back with the sounds of (as close as a computer can get) a live symphonic orchestra (as in Vienna soundfonts, or the Garritan orchestra, etc.).
