Re: What are you listening to now?

And now this has sent me down a particular road. I first came across this in my late teens or maybe I was twenty. I just loved it, something about that particular set of notes (I’d call it a scale but I think it’s probably modal...). Anyway, it was the first time I was conscious of the Spanish scale...

This one, despite it being well past his ‘70’s prime, I just love. Didn’t know he could play! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yhhDOPPfAyM I was always impressed by the space that Gillian and Dave occupied by just two voices and guitars so this impressed me even more (love the amalgam of the two parts)...

Re: What do you think about when you are riding?

Some times I ride to ease my mind, others to cease it. I have ridden across the country in order to ‘clear’ it of the clutter and onslaught that I bring down upon myself. I find the repetition of movement eases me and helps me ‘think’. I have often made important decisions on the bike (others walkin...

Currently trying to workout how to obtain a playable copy Sanación by Maria José Llergo.

The emphasis is on playable. 12” doesn’t fit in my cd or computer/iPod... cd or mp3 is what I was searching for. Ended up on YouTube instead... :roll:

Re: What are you listening to now?

Despite my moniker (which is actually derived from a Cat Power song) I have a tendency to vier towards the minimalist. Arvo Pärt gets a fair listen (Kanon Pokajanen, Symphony No 4 and Tabala Rasa currently). Bang on a Can’s rendition of Reich’s 4 organs & maracas must be due for a dust off pretty so...

I live on the Black Isle though (which apparently isn’t on the mainland according to some cour...
