    Sun of Goldfinger (New Release with @splatt)

    A truly great album, ”spartan... ” is a extra ordinary achievment.. i really cant understand how it was created. Sound improvisera and composed at the same time.. like a mix of Coltrane, Stravinsky, and Hendrix. Would love to hear more about how it was created.

    Ideas For Pure Improvisation?

    PURE improvisation would, logically, mean that you are absolutely pure from musical experience, some have aimed for it, lika when Miles wanted McLaughlin to sound like he didn't know how to play.. So that sort of "pure" cant really exist.. a method I have tried is to put one self in a spot where...

    Using an external DAC for home MP3 listening- How necessary is it?

    No a good DAC/amplifier will make a HUGE difference.. listning the Spotify with the Chord Mojo and my ZMF Vibro headphones is a PURE JOY.. comparable to my Linn Sondek Turntable.. and that what it is all about setting up a system that makes you enjoy music.. I downloaded Cds will sound GREAT...

    Using an external DAC for home MP3 listening- How necessary is it?

    First tried without the dac.. very hard to hear any difference, so i could not bother to try to guess. then tried with the DAC, choose 320kbps most times, could in all cases but one tell which was the 128kbps.. The only recording where the difference was really obvious was the Mozart piano...

    Using an external DAC for home MP3 listening- How necessary is it?

    I would say that a DAC is MUCH more important than losless.. mine make ALL music in all formats A LOT better. I use a Chord Mojo: http://www.chordelectronics.co.uk/product/mojo/ Anyone saying that it will not make a difference with ordinary iTunes mp3 downloads or streaming is just plain wrong...

    Music Theory is NoT,,,

    It is a theory of constructed facts, like language.. an convention, in that way i differs from a scientific theory which tries to describe facts that in the natural sciences are mind independent. Music theory talks about facts of a constructed system, you cannot falsify music theory (as you...

    Music Theory is NoT,,,

    Of course music theory is confining it tells you you MUST divide the octave i 12 steps, that you cannot have chords only containing halfsteps.. and so on.. that the reason that composer started to use spectral techniques in the mid 20th century instead of 12 tone techniques. Since most...

    Music Theory is NoT,,,

    Well what is a "correct" c-triad is stated by the theory of music, by following the rules you play a "correct" C triad.. and if you follow rules of just intonation a correct C triad is different that in 12TET.. and in other tuning system C triad might not even exist.. As i see music theory...

    Music Theory is NoT,,,

    Hmm i don't think we should confuse music theory with science.. Music theory, as most think of it, is more like a constructed system of extreme simplification in organizing sound. In most cases it is limeted to 12 tones of equal spacing and therefore it is not applicable to organized sound that...

    Looping for Guitarists: An Open Letter to FX Manufacturers

    So here is some more looping.. music?... this is again the 4 MS DLD (dual looping delay) and the Make Noise erbverb.. the verb is sort of self feedbacking and getting input from the live guitar.. (Kauer with gold foils and Custom by Cougar 4*el84 amp) verb is sometime, intentionally drowning out...

    Looping for Guitarists: An Open Letter to FX Manufacturers

    OK so here is first, rather long, improvisation for Guitar, Dual Looping Delay and Erbeverb.. I CV most parameters on the DLD so loop length is short and random, a also random trigger HOLD and REVERSE while sending varying CV to Feedback so that loop-windowing occur. THe windowing and varying...

    Free Jazz - what's the deal?

    Hmm free jazz for me is more Ornette Coleman, or John Zorn... Music that goes beoynd 12 tone system and is more like improvised sound art...

    Looping for Guitarists: An Open Letter to FX Manufacturers

    I have now received my 4ms Dual Looping Delay (eurorack module, Gary Hall designed:dude) and it is awesome.. the loop windowing is extra ordinary fun and quite weird, will do some guitar clips of it..

    Weird For The Sake Of Being Weird, also Pretetentiousness

    It IS sort of difficult.. I'm sort of wierd, sort of for the sake of it.. i have consciously trained my ear to accept the "strange", disregard standard modal and chordal harmony and embrace the concept of music as organized sound where 12 tones and a octave is just ONE possible way of organizing...

    NGD Kauer "Acadian" with gold foils.. Blue of course

    And i bought it BECAUSE of the specs.. longer scale length and 2tek for clarity and intonation, semi hollow for responsiveness and feel... ideal.. one could think that they factor out each other, not so it is like the best from a tele and the best from a jazz archtop in a complementary way,.

    And... an additional clip.. done a couple of hours after the first one.. same gear.. some "Patch".. just some more knob tweaking.. and a bit of more experimental attitude.. perhaps..
