Two audio demos for new sample library...

While not *directly* Laswell-related, this might hold some interest for those who create music and like
blending 
styles and sounds from other cultures...

I have been beta-testing Wavelore's new AMERICAN ZITHER sampled instrument library, and Wavelore has 
placed two songs of mine (which, it seems, have been very well-received) up on the demos page of their
website, 
together with some explanatory text for each piece.

Look here: http://wavelore.com/demos.shtml

In its purest form, the American Zither captures beautifully the sharp and resonant sound of a hammered
dulcimer 
(known as a santur in Indian/Arabic/Persian music). You will hear the "dulcet" shimmering dulcimer tones
in the 
plaintive "The Moon Lies Black Upon the Straits," the first of the two featured songs.

The second song, ostensibly an "ambient guitar" work entitled "Dark Matter I," was originally conceived
as a proof-
of-concept piece... the "concept" being that, with only minor processing, one could easily transform the
sharp, 
bright sound of the hammered dulcimer into a universe of real and as-yet-uninvented instruments of all
shapes, 
sizes and timbres... which could sit quite nicely in musics of virtually any style.

In this particular case, I was shooting for the pensive ambient guitar sound of artists like Roy
Montgomery, Stars of 
the Lid, and Ash Ra Tempel's Manuel Göttsching. At the end of the day, I was rather pleased with the results - 
both conceptually and musically...

Inamorata?

Anyone hear anything?  Will it magically appear out of
nowhere on June 5?

Catching up

Hi,

I have been browsing around looking for some of the albums I have missed for 
various reasons. I would appreciate any comments that anyone may have about 
the following:
Satori				Invisible Rhythm
Enzo Gragnaniello	Neapolis Mantra
Akiko Grace			Illume
Marie Boine			Remixed
Lili Boniche			Boniche Dub 2

I know some of these have minimal Laswell content, and are hard to track down, 
but is it worth the effort?

Thanks,
Robert

The Marie Boine Remixed features BL on bass on several tracks - v 
groovy.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for the other content ALONE.

Boniche Dub Two:  IMHO, superior to the first (though BL does not 
play on it).  Again, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Have not heard (nor heard of) the les autre titles.

Re: Re: Catching up

yeah...i actually found that some of the other remixes are better. the biosphere mix in particular i really like. worth picking up i think if you can find it cheap. satori i personally don't find very impressive.  neapolis mantra is so-so, and i don't particularly care that much for the remix. akiko grace is another that i'd be wary of paying full import price on. it's very light handed, and only one track (the co-write) really shows a laswell influence, and at that, not a ton.  boniche dub II i don't like as much as the first, but i do think it's a good album for sure.  if i have time this week, i will try to post clips from all of these.
