When Live In Argentina (CLUB46) was released, it was announced that the KCCC would cease to exist at CLUB50, and that the remaining four releases would be of visual content. Whatever happened? Will we ever see CLUB47,48,49 or 50? If so what could they entail? Complete Japan 1984 footage? Cleaned up Frejus and Munich 82? San Francisco 95?
The Elements of KC back to America.

I am pretty sure you have already thought of touring America again with your Elements. Remember that since the last time you guys came to Montreal, Canada, multiple venues have been created on the island of Montreal or in the suburban.
Montreal being the íípoint of entryíí for multiple Prog band in North America, King Crimson will always be received with the required honors, fans and moments for you guys to remember.
As always, Bienvenue ŗ Montrťal,
Oka, QC, Canada
Easter 'Shepherd' ....chocolate enhanced musings ...

......... I suggest if you want to experience real energy and effect you do not miss the KWS Bandís short visit to the UK shortly. His October gig at Manchester last year was a total blast!
...tending the sheep by a true shepherd of the blues with Noah alongside too......

Itís the Shepard Effect not Shepherd!
entropy and life
:: Posted by Tom239 on April 05, 2015
We only see water flow downhill. Yet water that has reached the ocean is returned to mountaintops, not by flowing uphill in riverbeds but by weather--a process driven by energy from the sun.
Temperatures in a room naturally tend toward uniformity. But a refrigerator pumps heat out of its interior--if it has a power supply.
These examples show that the natural trend toward increased entropy is reversible at the cost of energy use.
All life requires energy. This is true for each individual (a manís gotta eat) and for the larger process of evolution that got us to this point. Life, a process that exhibits remarkable order and organization, is not a violation of the second law of thermodynamics. It is an instance of what is possible when energy is available.

Just wonder if The Consrukction of light and Thrak will be available soon on vinyl??

Thanks to Marked Man for two quite disparate yet resonant posts.
As for the first: if the Shepherd Effect works with descending tones as well as ascending, it might well explain the seemingly endless descent of Coda: Marine 475 (presumably itself a rather nice metaphor).
As for Jack Bruce, Richard Williams wrote a brief but appreciative memorial piece in October 2014 in which he tells of attending a Lifetime gig at the Marquee in October 1970 with Robert Fripp, where "we spent the evening glancing at each other in wonderment as the storm raged through the club, threatening to strip the black paint from the walls. I donít believe the sheer ferocity of it, the unstoppable outpouring, the brutal intensity and sometimes ecstatic interplay, could ever be recreated. Sadly, their records didnít even begin to tell the story."
The seeds of 1972-74 KC were possibly sown that day. Along with Sailorís Tale.
And Iíve always thought that John Wettonís bass part on Fracture (starting at 8:38 on the SABB version) sounds remarkably like Jack.

Iíve been listening to a lot of Jackís solo work, especially those first four solo albums from Things We Like through Out Of The Storm and wondered if Robertís path ever crossed Jackís, even just comparing notes (no pun intended) there sure seems to be a lot in common with respect to aesthetic and goals for their music.
the shepherd effect

Was just watching a short flick at I fíing love science dot com about audio illusions and they covered something called the shepherd effect which gives impressions tones are moving higher and higher. I immediately wondered if this illusion had been used deliberately in Larks Tongues in Aspic Part II?

Life - a temporary reversal of entropy.
Thatíll teach me not to be facetious.

You mentioned a King Crimson fan who was there when the Higgs Boson particle was discovered... Here is some music created by one of the LHC staff (Piotr Traczyk).
Thank you Bakullama for the link. Most interesting - but definitely not the guy I know. Makes me wonder how many Crimson fans there are in CERN and whether Robert should have considered Geneva for the upcoming tour.
