SCOTT WALKER 30TH CENTURY MAN

SCOTT WALKER 30TH CENTURY MAN

Just beyond the world of pop stardom there is a creative realm in which Scott Walker inhabits, his followers are other wayward audio explorers like Beck, Jarvis Cocker, and David Bowie. "30th Century Man" attempts to give us a window into this rare sonic space. And yes, it's about the music.

  • Every once in a while Brian Eno offers up the answer sto questions we forgot to ask.

  • This is my favorite American Afro Funk album from the 80's. Danceable, funky, quirky, arty, and urgent, just like the times in which it was composed in.

  • Somehow at first listen the songs of "Before and After Science" felt like old favorites, some, perky, some quirky, some very relaxed like a fond memory of a perfect day.

  • Like Eric Satie but contemporary

Exposure contains a kind of unspoken darkness within Fripp's choice of song structure, instrumentation and vocalists. The result is a series of music acts which twitch inside a skin of hybrid jazz-pop lotion, often transcending the 80's sound-picture into a kind of jazz vocal daisy chain, and yet always collapsing back into it. I happen to like the sound of alienation from time to time, Exposure dose it for me. Noteworthy tracks: You Burn Me Up I'm A Cigarette North Star Exposure Here Comes The Flood NY3

Wendy Carlos's Switched-On Bach is one of those rare novelty recordings that never gets boring. In the capable hands of Carlos, Bach's keyboard masterpieces sound like they were made for the otherworldly blurps, farts, and chimes of a Moog synthesizer. And, in a sense, they were. Bach's inventive music doesn't lose any of it's contrapuntal punch in these complicated arrangements and, novelties aside, the playing is great on this Grammy Award-winning classic. Whether performing Bach's "Two-Part Inventions," "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," or "Wachet Auf," Carlos offers one-of-a-kind interpretations, her synthesizers still sounding as otherworldly as they did in 1968. This is one of those weird and wonderful classical releases that anyone--classical scholar or pop enthusiast--can enjoy. A Switched-On box set exists, capturing most of Carlos's baroque-gone-berserk output, but this is the disc that started it all. In a word, fun. --Jason Verlinde

  • 30 Century Man is the must see Scott Walker documentary. If you don't know who this seminal artist is, then this is the perfect introduction.

  • Nico's Chelsea Girl (1967) was not her debut solo effort. The album is an introspective with a longing for dreams and love.

In the spirit of honesty, I don't think I had any idea who this guy was until this weekend. I was at a Jon Brion show. He asked for request and people passionately wanted to here some tracks of this, Eno's '74 debut. He played a couple tracks, prefaced by an endorsement of the album that was strong enough to download it as soon as I got home.

De band staat met twee benen in de muziekhistorie van de jaren '80 en '90, new wave en rock. Wat dat betreft is de single Get On Your Boots met bijbehorende ZooTV achtige clip een vreemde eend in de bijt.No Line On The Horizon mag bij eerste beluistering zo ongrijpbaar klinken als de gefotografeerde troebele kim van de Bodensee, gegarandeerd wordt het beeld bij elke luisterbeurt scherper. De torenhoge verwachtingen bij elke U2 release zijn wat mij betreft ingelost.

  • This somber song is currently in heavy rotation on my playlist. The piano accompaniment is tender and Eno's voice really zones me out in a relaxing way.

Developed by ambient pioneer Brian Eno and musician/software designer Peter Chilvers, Bloom explores uncharted territory in the realm of applications for the iPhone and iPod touch. Part instrument, part composition and part artwork, Bloom’s innovative controls allow anyone to create elaborate patterns and unique melodies by simply tapping the screen. A generative music player takes over when Bloom is left idle, creating an infinite selection of compositions and their accompanying visualisations.

This record has grown out of the Long Now Foundation's project - the Clock of the Long Now. This is an idea to create a working clock which will mark time for ten thousand years - not really because we need more clocks in the world, but because we need more encouragement to start contemplating the possibility of a distant human future. The Clock of the Long Now is an icon to long-term thinking. When we started thinking about The Clock, we naturally wondered what kind of sound it could make to announce the passage of time. I had nurtured an interest in bells for many years, and this seemed like a good alibi for taking it a bit deeper. I began reading about bells, discovering the physics of their sounds, and became interested in thinking about what other sorts of bells might exist. My speculations quickly took me out of the bounds of current physical and material possibilities, but I considered some licence allowable since the project was conceived in a time scale of thousands of years, and I might therefore imagine bells with quite different physical properties from those we now know. And as I started trying to make bell sounds with my synthesizers, I got diverted by some of the more attractive failures. -- Brian Eno All profits from the sale of this record will be donated to the Long Now Foundation. The first prototype of the Clock is working and on permanent display at the Science Museum in London. This CD has fifteen tracks and a total playing time of 75 mins 43 seconds.

"A Town Called Addis" is an inspired collaboration between amazing singers and musicians in Addis Ababa covering Azmari and traditional styles as well as the popular singing styles of the 60s and 70s and Dub Colossus (Nick Page). The result connects the golden years of ethiopique beats (popular again thanks to the release of the critically acclaimed 'Ethiopique' compliation ) and ethiojazz with the dub reggae styles of early the 70s.

  • Ambient soundtracks laced on a slowing evolving, calm nature imagery is the best description to this work; pump your speakers and start up your screen projector to submerge in this abstract and soothing work.

  • My personal favorite U2 album, and seminal as far as production goes. Eno and Lanois helped U2 take the wall of sound to a whole new level. Some overlooked favorites include "Ultraviolet (Light My Way)" and "Acrobat".

Nicolai works directly with the piano sounds, dismantling Sakamoto's recordings with "surgeon-like precision" into micro loops; into their atomic elements. Starting with these sound atoms, he creates a new basis for form, compressing, floating, and rotating rhythm with harmonic sequences and melodic counterpoints, and laying it underneath the piano tracks. This makes insen appear more complex, though the time-stretched flow and the clear lines of the piano stay untouched.
