For some reason this song has been on my mind today. Don't know why. Maybe you guys are collectively experiencing the same phenomenon and have an answer for this feeling? Posted Image



AAAAH;WOOOOOOOOO!

I always misheard that Shakira song as saying 'there's a paedo in the closet'...

Okay guys, you know by now that I'm not a pop, cotton candy, Billboard top 100 listener. Not my thing, never been my thing. I find most of what the masses consider "hits" completely hollow and uninteresting and repetitive and formulaic and image driven/focused and.... well you get the idea. But there's something about this song. It's been pop-a-loppin' all over the radio in my neck of the woods and each time I jump around the dial and land on it, I find myself listening. There's something about that voice, I think, that keeps me tuned in.

Moon Hooch's new album 'Life on Other Planets' is a real treat. I've been listening to it on repeat all day while writing a report, and it's great! It's amazing what sort of soundscape they manage to create with two saxophones and a set of drums.

Okay purported musicologists, I need your help. I caught this artist on a late night show and he reminds me / is derivative of someone else or band (or a certain type of music). He is Canadian, so I'm fairly confident he is familiar to some of you. Anyway, I'm trying to put my finger on who he reminds me of. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

Incidentally, here are two sets of virtual instruments I bought recently:



(that mostly for my AI to play... though I like being able to program the glissandos)




(this also to morph with my own voice, and others)

Bought some new virtual instruments:



'We collaborated with classically-trained musician and sound designer Qianqian Jin who performed both standard and extended articulations for this collection. Qianqian Jin is a multimedia performance artist and designer with a strong passion for innovative sound design and composition. She began her Eastern classical training as a Guzheng player at the age of eight and received an education in Western music specializing as a digital composer at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. [...] Read more about her at www.qjin.xyz
'



'[Kongzi] was playing the stone chimes in the state of Wei. A man with a wicker basket strapped to his back passed by the door of the Kong Family residence and remarked, "Whoever is playing the chimes like that certainly has something on his mind!" After listening for a moment, he added, "How despicable is this petty stubbornness! If no one understands you, just tend to yourself.

'If the river ford is deep, use the stepping-stones;
If it is shallow, simply raise your hem.'"

The Master [hearing these comments] responded, "Such resoluteness! Who could take issue with that!"' (Kongzi = 'Confucius')

Found myself transfixed while listening to NPR Weekend during a segment about Hagia Sophia and the efforts to rediscover the unique qualities it brings to sound. When I got home I started down a rabbit hole to learn more. This is only scratching the surface, but I personally find it fascinating.

c (Grimes) has a new album out, Miss Anthropocene (goddess of climate change). Her best long-tail reverb yet....

'Halfaxa, 15 ethereal tracks in which her vocals approached pure glossolalia.

Halfaxa is Grimes at her most mystical. Boucher has referred to it as her "medieval album" in terms of intent and subject matter. She once explained that the record is meant to be an electronic interpretation of Middle Age Christian reverence, an exploration of sensations beyond earthly experience: "I wanted to capture the beauty of being in a beautiful cathedral and hearing reverbed (naturally), devotional, vocal music and really believing in heaven and hell." Many of Boucher's theories for Halfaxa were inspired by her own "idol" at the time, Hildegard von Bingen, a 12th-century German saint without musical training whose music was inspired by divine visions she received starting at the age of three. As explained in von Bingen's theological text Liber Vitae Meritorum, after The Fall, music became a means of accessing a lost state of perfection. Boucher would later lament that her early musical ventures were recorded when she "didn't really know what [she] was doing," but listeners discovering Halfaxa in 2016 are aware of her technical ascent'

https://pitchfork.co.../21775-halfaxa/

However, the reverb in Halfaxa was set to mono to avoid creating excess mud. Her latest features incredibly lush stereo reverb (and delay), possibly using Adaptiverb (or other recent AI reverb methods) to eliminate unwanted muddiness, although the sparse composition and use of panning (software offers fantastic control over the stereo field) may already negate it.
