Ikue Mori...Carla Azar
:: Posted by emory0 on October 15, 2013
I’ve seen Ikue Mori play a couple of times down at The Stone, on Avenue C. The Stone is basically John Zorn’s very minimal performance space (with metail folding chairs) where you pay (usually) $10 to see musicians imrpovise. As I remember, I saw Ikue Mori play with John Zorn and others, and she operated a laptop with lots of water and other sounds on it. Actually, I found her contributions to be for the most part fascinating.
In terms of out-and-out female drummers that might be appropriate for KC, I’d point to the excellent Carla Azar. Her drumming is very much in the vein of Jim Keltner: Lots of percussive textures and sounds and rythmically intense.
Ikue Mori, slight return

"[Ikue Mori] now concentrates entirely on making music (and accompanying visual art) with notebook computer," that is.

> Ikue Mori, the drummer from DNA, is a wonderful drummer.
She was, but switched to drum machines a long time ago, and now concentrates entirely on making music (and accompanying visual art) notebook computer. Still, points well taken: ’Painted Desert’ is a marvelous album, and Mori’s one of the most deft, intuitive improvisers in the business.
Hello to all

I have absolutely nothing to say here except that Robert, you are a sweet, sweet star that guided me through the darkest times, perhaps without ever knowing it. I apologize if this is an inappropriate location for this message.
what really matters

Forget what 3 drummers sound like (did that already with Bru and Pat), forget who’s singing instead of Ade or Wett (be grateful it’s not, well...), forget front lines, back lines, middle bridges, the really big question is:
Will all Crim 8 be decked out in waistcoat and tie?
And have we thus moved from an audience of young men, some with facial hair and glasses, to wizened gits with bifocals and bald spots?
Sign me turkey necked and highly muttoned.
... is in the details

From my diary, 16 February 1976:
"We watched a programme about the ’mysterious’ Bermuda Triangle, and they played King Crimson: The Devils’ Triangle in it, which I’d always wanted to understand the source of!"
(This was, Wikipedia tells me 37 years later, the BBC Horizon episode "The Case of the Bermuda Triangle".)
A brief glimpse of Crimson in those dark days between Red/USA and the release of the Young Person’s Guide. And that was all there was and would be, as far as we knew back then.

"A while ago I saw some vintage episodes of the fondly remembered kids BBC show "Vision On"
I never knew that came from the UK! Me and my brothers used to be fascinated by the show as teenagers here in NYC: They showed it on some obscure UHF channel (25?), and we found the music, small vignettes and Rube Goldberg Machines fascinating.
10 days short of a personal 40th Anniversary...

Burning Shed very swiftly, naturally with Royal patronage, got my R2R ahead of the Oct 14 release date. Today I thought I’d still be waiting. Mine arrived 11.10.13 - fantastic.
At 08.08 on the 12th, with family having a Saturday lying in, Disc 1 was devoured without interruption. Bliss. Tonight 06 06 74 awaits. My wife paid ’us’ the ultimate compliment around an hour ago whilst the team thundered through Starless from June51974 - ’please turn it down love... the whole house is shaking!’ A similar comment I recall from 40 years ago in quite different circumstances.
Great product again from DGM - the music is the gem and the packaging is gold. Very presentable t-shirt from BS as well. Good taste has never been lacking from KC.
The book also reveals how so alike those who ’got’ KC shared the same feelings about what we did and didn’t hear, thought we had or might. However there were very few of us who knew of each other so in the fan contributions I can relate so well - and I was in the UK. Amazing how times have changed.
I saw this (my)band(at the time...you know) in Liverpool’s Empire Theatre Oct 24 1973. I met my girlfriend there with 3 of my friends whilst her parents and mine went off to see Shirley Bassey. I recall little, but white light around BB, standing in mild amusement as KC lurched into Cat Food as the encore and my girlfriends very cuddly jumper.....ohh its coming back to me now. I had an inkling then that the awesome 21stCSM was something I may never get to hear live. However over the years taking it on the chin with regards to thwarted expectation and developing a patience without despair has proved the rule.
I am now glad I have this boxset, wouldn’t have wanted to miss it. Nice to know as well that my hard earned cash may go to the guys who created.
Thanks DGM, great stuff...... - enough energy here to keep me going another 40 years.
For 2014............and as comedian Jimmy CriKCet would have said as we all know with a comely wave of his hand.....’there’s more, there’s more......
I can’t flippin’ wait!

"Please wait another year! We’ll be rehearsing, in full and small group formations over that period."
This makes me joyful! The world needs King Crimson, now more than ever.
My respect and eternal gratitude to the Spirit of the King!

A while ago I saw some vintage episodes of the fondly remembered kids BBC show "Vision On" where I was surprised to hear one of the instrumental sections of "I Talk To The Wind" used to accompany pastoral film footage in a 1970 or 1971 episode. That series used a wide variety of music in it’s shows - aimed at deaf or hard of hearing children hence very little spoken dialogue, just mostly music and sound effects along with many odd visuals.
