P2 At Albany Again
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Feb 20, 2012

My thanks to J Eric Smith for sending in this marvelous review of P2 playing Albany. You can hear the gig that Eric is writing about here.



Eric writes "I was a music critic (for better or worse) in Albany, New York for many years. My wife and I recently relocated to Des Moines, Iowa, and as part of launching a web presence in my new home community, I have been reviewing old archives of my work for items that might lend themselves to new purposes. I found a ProjeKCt Two live review (copied below) while digging through old floppy discs and files, and thought I would share it here, since I have not seen many other formal newsprint reviews from that era posted here. It was a lovely show, one that I still cite as one of my all-time favorite live performances.

****************************

ProjeKct Two
Valentine’s Music Hall, Albany, New York, May 8, 1998
Copyright 1998, J. Eric Smith (Originally appeared in Metroland, The Alternative Newsweekly of Northeastern New York)

"OK, now we’ve played everything we don’t know,so we can play something that we actually do know," announced electronic drummer Adrian Belew at the end of ProjeKct Two’s second all-instrumental, all-improvised set. Belew, 10-string Warr guitarist Trey Gunn and electric six-string guitarist Robert Fripp then encored with King Crimson’s "Vrooom," an angular number originally created by Fripp, Belew, Gunn and their Crimson bandmates Tony Levin, Bill Bruford and Pat Mastelotto.
 
As nice as it was to hear "Vrooom," the true value of the encore was to place the evening’s improvisational extravaganza in context by providing a single sample of how ProjeKct Two sounded when tackling a fully developed and structured instrumental piece. Frankly speaking, the encore paled in comparison to the 90 minutes of music preceding it, as its rehearsed complexities and nuances were nowhere near as impressive as the knotty, towering sound collages that ProjeKct Two created on the fly as the rapt audience watched and listened.
 
Fripp, Belew and Gunn were watching and listening to each other as well, and much of the thrill of this concert came from witnessing the interactions between these deeply talented musicians who have played together long enough to anticipate each other’s thoughts, sometimes before they eve realize that they’ve had them. Belew or Fripp typically opened each number with a drum or guitar pattern that the other musicians would would investigate, mount and ride, sometimes to loud and uplifting summits, sometimes to quiet, scary grottoes, sometimes back to the point at which they started. It was actually harrowing to experience in many cases, as the trio careened just on this side of control as they rode, the looks on their faces indicating that it was just as thrilling (and frightening) for them as it was their audience.
 
As important as technical prowess was to the concert’s success, mention must also be made of ProjeKct Two’s technological proficiancy. Belew was playing the latest generation of Roland virtual drums, allowing him to create a seemingly infinite number of sonic assaults as he clattered and rattled along with a look-Ma-I’ve-got drums grin on his face. (Understandable, given that he’s normally a guitarist.) Gunn matched Belew’s rhythmic and textural intensity as he tapped, stroked and and beat the touchboard of his Warr guitar.
 
Fripp spun out any number of his trademark spine-tingling sustained guitar lines but also used the treatment technology he has developed over the years via his Soundscape and Frippertronic performance experiments to create a wealth of tones and intonations. At times, the bands’ sounds were so far skewed from what your eyes were reporting to your brain that it was almost psychologically easier to look at the floor and imagine that Fripp was playing cluster chords on some beaten-up jazz-hall piano while Gunn blew on a baritone sax and Belew kept time by tapping on whisky bottles and ashtrays. Crazy, man, crazy.
 
All told, ProjeKct Two’s concert was a magnificent one, and I must confess to feeling great relief in being able to report that. Why? Because Robert Fripp’s written and recorded works have done more to shape both how I listen to and how I think about music than have any other artist’s over the last two decades, although I never actually stood in the same space with Fripp until last Friday. So imagine the potential for debilitating disappointment at this show, and then imagine the transcendent relief and joy when it didn’t come to pass. It literally moved me to tears. And how often can a wordless concert do that?"

New Harry Miller Album
:: Posted by admin on Sun., Oct 6, 2013
Harry Miller, who played double on King Crimson’s Islands has a new archive release available on Ogun Recording, the pioneering jazz label he founded in 1974.

Born in South Africa, Miller became one of the key players in the British and European jazz scene. His work with Keith Tippett led to his invitation to play on Islands in 1971. The 40th Anniversary Edition of Islands featured several outtakes of Formentera Lady which prominently features the bassist’s contributions to the sessions. Miller died in 1983 but his legacy on numerous recordings is rightly revered and respected.

And The Winner Is...

Congratulations to Griffith Davies of West Hills California. He was able to tell me that the last CD by Markus Reuter and Ian Boddy was entitled Dervish, which as Griffith points out in his email, "features some guy called Pat Mastelotto."  For this priceless gem of information he wins himself a copy of the latest Reuter/ Boddy collaboration, Colour Division. Stay tuned for another exciting DGMLive giveaway, soon! 


Google & Google: Who Makes The Money?
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Sep 28, 2013
Thanks to stompalong for sending in this article about MPs criticising Google's stance on dealing with copyright infringement.

Copyright infringement is touched upon in this heartfelt Facebook post* by RTF guitarist, Frank Gambale, who is also unhappy at the streaming services.

Given that both Google and the streaming services depend on a lot of music, doesn't it strike you as odd that it's the musicians who earn the least out of it all?

* Just in case you're not on Facebook here's Frank Gambale's post...

Well, some interesting points being made here. Obviously there needs to be something done. All I can do is take a stand. CDBaby has three tiers of distribution.

The highest tier ( to which I have begun to place all mine as of today ) is distributed to only outlets that pay 50 cents or better per download or use.

The second tier is distribution to anywhere that pays, even if it's a tiny amount ( this is where most of my stuff has been and includes distribution to streaming websites such as Rhapsody and Spotify ).

The third tier is distribute to anywhere and everywhere whether it pays or not.

The arguments I have heard so far do not convince me to change my opinion on this.

One argument about the digital landscape that has changed and that musicians need to change with it is a load of codswallop!

I don't know any people more adaptable than musicians. We have had to survive our entire lives without a safety net, without security, without 401Ks, without health insurance paid by the employers, without handouts. We have survived purely on our own merits, skills and work ethic.

When I posted earlier that 17000 plays of a tune generated a whopping 15 cents in royalty, that is NOT a reflection of, what one person argued, that you have to give people what they want, a catchy hook and that jazz was pop music 50 years ago!! etc...that misses the point entirely. At 17000 downloads a month for just one of my songs ( some 250 published ) I think, is indeed giving folks what they obviously want, the point is, is this a fair return for so many plays?? I think not.

Folks, we as musicians are all shooting ourselves in the foot by adhering to anything but the highest tier from places like CDBaby. Competing amongst ourselves for "exposure" is why we are getting nowhere on this issue. We need a united front.

TThe truth is that it is really a moral issue. Some have said, and I agree, what if we could go to a grocery store, fill up the cart and leave without paying!! How long would the grocery stores be in business then?

Intellectual property is still "property"...meaning, it belongs to someone...and yes, stealing is stealing. If music or movies or books are obtained for free from a file sharing site, it's STEALING folks. Yes, it's STEALING. That's why it's a moral issue. Stealing behind the cloak of the internet anonymously, is still STEALING!!!

If you have ever had your house robbed, you may then have an idea of what it feels like to put your name in Google and witness hundreds upon hundreds of pages of websites that have ALL your belongings (or lifelong works, or books or movies that you slaved over for years to produce etc. ) available for free to anyone who wants them. Think about this folks!! It's a moral issue alright.

I think the only likely outcome of this failing business model for intellectual property for the future is, a steady decline in the quality of music, films and literature in general. Talented people will decide that they are better off selling pizzas, because you can't download a pizza...at least, not yet.

People must get paid for working, it's that basic. The circle is broken. It's not to support lofty lifestyles, it's to make a decent living for a product that has taken a lifetime to achieve the abilities to be able to produce.

That's all I'm going to say on this. I think it's pretty clear where I stand on this issue. And, of course, nothing will change. Tomorrow's another day and that pizza shop is looking more and more like a good move...hahaha...just kidding folks.

Adrian Belew has posted the following Q&A on his Facebook Page in response to the recent changes in King Crimson's line-up.

questions and answers.

q: are you in the new King Crimson planned for next september 2014?

a: no. after 32 years I am no longer in King Crimson.

q: were you asked to be in the new King Crimson?

a: no, I was not. robert informed me in an email that he was starting a 7-piece version of the band. he said I would not be right for what the band is doing.

q: so, how do you feel?

a: "happy with what I have to be happy with". which is quite a lot.

I'm busy creating something I've wanted to create all my life, something which has never been done. FLUX: never the same twice. creatively I'm exploding with new ideas, songs, and music. in 60 days I'll be touring south america with my beloved Power Trio and next spring I'll be touring europe with Crimson Project, which is a celebration of the crimson music
tony, pat, and I have help create. life is great.

q: what would you like to say to crimson fans about the new King Crimson?

a: my advice is to check it out and if you like it: support it.
and on that note: thanks to all of you for your continued support of my music.
cheers!
