amlehn-fripp-jeanrenaud / recording / Gnawa
:: Posted by emory0 on April 11, 2016
Yeah, I wish there was a disc of that commercially available somewhere. This "downloading" business doesnít interface too well with my stereo, and even when it does Iím always afraid some software upgrade or format change will render these immaterial files nil.
As for Fripp working with Joan Jeanrenaud, for a long time Iíve thought that Frippís Fripperscapes often had the wrong audience (predominantly Crimson and/or rock fans) and that BAM or Barbican would be a much better venue (and in which I have seen almost no photography, though with one really annoying exception that I personally stomped out!)
Speaking of which, on Saturday night I attended a Moroccan Gnawa ceremony (seems a far better words than performance) at a Sufi mosque downtown (NYC). The announcement was made that photography and recording were not allowed (to some moans), but people complied and it was a wild, wonderful night (started around 8:30 and went past midnight, by the way). The musicians were facilitators of what was a tribal/communal experience that offered an opening to all who wanted to enter in, and I have zero doubt that the lack-of-recording had everything to do with this (though video was taken by folks whose job it was to do so). Some folks danced, including women (some Muslim), and those who came up were draped in a blue or white shawl. Incense was burned and food was passed out once or twice. This was music you could EAT, a veritable communion, that became part of you and tied you to others and to the event in a deep way.

I just found out about these last week (https://soundcloud.com/amlehn-fripp-jeanrenaud). Does anybody know if these are available commercially? The Fripp/Jeanrenaud combination is really unique.
KC Tour box 2014 question
:: Posted by Royston on April 10, 2016
I think logan74 is spot on here.
To use a technical term, the Asbury Park Schizoid Man has more twiddly bits than the Providence version. And the 2014 tour box set version definitely has the Asbury Park twiddly bits.

Youíre welcome, pcpaki. Glad to be of help.
KC Tour box 2014 question
:: Posted by logan74 on April 09, 2016
On the packaging of the 2014 tour box set, 21st Century Schizoid Man is listed as being from Providence RI. Is that correct? Because it sounds like that track is taken from Asbury park.

This does in fact appear to be the case. I had purchased the ITWOP 180-gram reissue, which came with the download of the pink Island label press rip, and the differences were especially noticeable on The Devilís Triangle. This also appears to be the case with the Atlantic label copies of the album.

Thank you so much, Antonion
for re-tickling the link to
As a reverent fan of Robertís Soundscapes and the intentions that create them,
these pieces created with 2 other artists are a stunning elaboration of that work.
Finding out about the environment they were played in takes the joyful mysteries even deeper!
Also, "Midori" by Stick Men with David Cross is a wonderfully nutritional visit -
I wish to have been in the air of that performance, the performance & recording is so immersive & powerful.
Earnest Thank Youís to all involved with such great work =)
In the Wake of Poseidon (Pink Island) - different mix??
:: Posted by Mawsonics on April 08, 2016
Hello all. Iím a newbie here, with a query about the íPoseidoní album, which Iíve just bought on Pink Island (the first pressing) for the not unreasonable price of £25. Listening to the album, Iíve noticed what sound like differences in the mix; for instance the title track has a longer fade-out, Mike Giles going absolutely ape at the very, very end with an amazing double bass drum írollí. I reckon the fade out is about 10 seconds longer than the (old) CD version Iím familiar with. Also, the incredible ífog horní moment in The Devilís Triangle (at about 3:50) is totally underwhelming, being quite low in the mix and mostly restricted to the r.h. speaker. Iím sure there are other minor differences elsewhere in this track, and also in Pictures of a City. Can anyone back me up on this? Thanks, Chris

In answer to the question:
A number of the team are experimenting with this (not this one - Iím too old a dog to learn such a new trick). It does offer all manner of possibilities, but it does mean re-learning a lot of things that weíve spent a long time re-learning from OST, as well as re-learning all the Crafty repertoire.
Time will tell - it usually does, anyway.
