Possible, possibly, possiblier . . ?

A suggestion for the creative brills at DGM Live who know doubt pass many an anxious hour pondering possible new releases . . . Why knot a disc of all of RF’s chats, quips, and comments he has made in concert with KC over the years . . ? Such fun. Cheers!

"fart and soul, one will burn".
What about music out from desperation like that one...
reactive inappropriate suggestion hopefully spelled correctly

why not a DGM XM station?
Henri Borloft's Precursors
:: Posted by Carnamagos on February 10, 2013
I am also glad to see the interest shown here in Borloft’s work. Now seems a good time to remember his precursors, as well.
No discussion of Goethean science is complete without mention of Rudolf Steiner. Similarly pertinent, though far less well known (and much less known than he ought to be) is the discoverer of ultraviolet radiation, Johann Wilhelm Ritter. It’s also a pity that Novalis (Friedrich von Hardenberg) did not live long enough to contribute to significantly to an alternative view of the sciences.
Also, although strictly speaking he is a contemporary of Borloft’s, Gregory Bateson merits a mention.
Jolly boating weather

If travelling in the West of England, there is also the historic Moles Club in Bath. I don’t know the Thekla venue, only the Arnolfini Centre. On the Thames in London we have the wonderful twice monthly Boat-Ting and the incredible MS Stubnitz from Rostock, currently moored at the Royal Albert Docks near City Airport. Good hunting!

Supposedly a biopic is in the early stage of development about Bowie and Iggy, their friendship and their time together in Berlin.
I wonder if a screen version of you-know-who will make an appearance. I would hope so if only to see and hear, immortalized on the screen for posterity the "sword of union" line.

Thank you for linking to the tributes to Henri Bortoft on my blog. I am still in the process of collecting tributes from others, and should either yourself or any of your visitors and friends here wish to write one, I would be very happy to publish on my blog. Contact details are on my blog.
You may also wish to know that the March edition of Holistic Science Journal will be dedicated to Henri, with tributes and articles.

Mr Bucket, thank you for the suggestion of A J Romain and Sons. Perhaps they’ll have the Polyphon of Lizard I’ve been searching for. We will be braving a few rock concerts for wild young people on the Thekla, do you know the venue?
Errol's next adventure
:: Posted by ErrolHTout on February 07, 2013
Greetings from sunny Perth.
Some of you may remember that I posted a message about the ’Post- Tumour Humour album’ after I had a large nasty bad guy tumour taken off with a kidney. Well I had to write a piece called ’Coda’ as I now have some nasty visitors on my liver.
I have started on a programme of ‘Sutent’. I am calling them ‘SAS’ pills. As I understand it, amongst their scope of duties, is anti-terrorist activity. They arrive [via parachute or something else very exciting] and kick the sh*t out of the nasty little lesions that have taken up residence on Lennie the Liver. Well, actually, they stop them growing by cutting off the things they need to grow, but I kinda like the ‘Arnie’ type analogy.
I have enrolled for an AAD course. Let’s see what I can do with the healing power of music over the next 3 months.
Best wishes to all
Dr Errol H Tout
Thanks and memories

I first heard ITCOTCK when it came out, but it was LTIA which caught me into the maelstrom. Since I have followed, sometimes in fits and spurts, the career of Fripp, DGM and now DGMlive. I sit in my office with the signed Soundscape 1995 posters on my walls, always reminding me of the craft of the guitarist & his aesthetic abilities. And whenever I talk about music with people, I express that at the heart of my musical journey are the triumvirate (trinity) of Fripp, Bowie, Eno.
Strangely it was the guardian article that Robert didn’t leak the story that Bowie was recording a new album that brought me back to DGMlive - following it up I saw references to his leaving the music business: the ongoing battles had taken their toll.
But once back here I found the cornucopia on offer & have been downloading as judiciously as my credit card and internet provider will allow the historic soundscapes and frippertronics. I am also trying to overcome the indiscipline of collector’s excess: I want to grab it in hunks that I can listen to and appreciate.
But as I gather it to me I want to take the opportunity to thank Robert for making the music and now making it available at very reasonable costs (especially the tour sets), for all those involved in the engineering (in particular the frippertronics where loops and solos are finally reunited), and that if Robert never creates any more public music, he has an astounding legacy on CD and here.
So thank you all
