Bill & Crimson!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Mar 15, 2015
My thanks to Leonardo Pavkovic for sending these photographs of the pre-concert talk tonight with Bill Bruford at the University of Surrey.






Bill was in conversation ahead of this evening's concert by the Delta Sax Quartet  who were performing ex-Earthworks pianist Gwilym Simcock's latest composition, Crimson! which re-imagines some of the Crimson canon scored exclusively for saxophone. The London premier of the composition takes place on May 1st at St.John's Smith Square.

Wake Up Call
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Mar 11, 2015
There's a new novel on the way from celebrated sci-fi author Alastair Reynolds next month.



The blurb says "two extraordinary characters...begin to unravel some of the greatest mysteries of our universe." Well, thatís one description of what Fripp and Sinfield were up to on the second King Crimson album, I suppose.

Soundscape Sunday: At The End Of Time
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Mar 8, 2015
Welcome to another episode Soundscape Sunday, an occasional series where we turn the spotlight on a soundscape you may have overlooked. We asked people to write in nominating their favourite soundscapes from the DGM Live library and to say a few words about their choice. The fickle finger of fate has chosen this suggestion from Geno T, who has nominated Cambridge December 11th 2005 when Robert was supporting Porcupine Tree.


Geno T writes:
For music as slow-paced as Soundscapes tend to be, this Porcupine Tree opening set covers quite a range in a tidy 35:27 and still doesn't feel a moment too long or too short. It starts out mysterious and expectant, wanders and searches through a passage of eerie 'piano' that could have come from an exotic (and somewhat unsettling) lounge far in outer space, and in the end weíre left somewhere thatísÖ maybe not happy, exactly, but peaceful and resolved.

The beautiful slow-washing finale suggests something majestic in the most fitting understated way, yet layered with lighter chimes that give a more intimate feeling of smaller scale at the same time.

Itís excellent stuff to unwind with over a commute home from work when burned out, generally safe to play around a spouse with a headache, and at least not *too* taxing on the patience of friends or others who don't share the same taste for weird slow space music. When it comes to Soundscapes in the more concise range, for me this is most often the pick of the bunch.


You can download and listen to a free excerpt from the concert or buy the whole gig here.

If you're a fan of any of the soundscapes that you've downloaded from the site why not write a short review - no more than 200 words - and send it to us at competitions@dgmlive.com marked SOUNDSCAPE SUNDAY.

If we feature your review in the Soundscape Sunday slot you will receive a free download of your choice from the entire DGMLive library for your trouble. Only one submission per person please so make it count.  OK get listening and then get writing!
