|Keeling Brought To Book
|:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Apr 3, 2012
Robert’s recent diary entry featured a photograph of Andrew Keeling’s King Crimson analysis.
In response to several queries, all three books can be obtained directly from Andrew’s publishers, Spaceward
Andrew also has a new rock album out called Bells Of Heaven
. Featuring a full rock band with contributions from Comsat Angels’ Stephen Fellows and No-Man’s Tim Bowness, the album was recently reviewed in R2 magazine: "It’s a hugely ambitious and complex work, as intricate in its construction as it is in its assemblage of supporting musicians and if it’s reasonable to describe it as progressive then it’s gently progressive; there’s a lightness of touch that belies its intricacies."You can grab Bells Of Heaven here

Andrew Keeling has published an edited version of his diaries from the old DGM site.
Glimpsing the Creative Unconscious. Volume 1 - The DGM Diaries (1999 - 2002) is available from Burning Shed or as an ebook.
How do composers compose? And why?
Initiated by Robert Fripp, the Diary was
intended from the outset to be the record of a living composer: one who stood
with one foot inside classical music and the other in rock/folk music. Besides
demonstrating the minutiae of the creative process, it also sheds light on
Keeling's involvement with Fripp's record label, Discipline Global Mobile, as
well as the Soundscapes orchestrations and the creation of the King Crimson
Andrew Keeling is a composer, musician,
improviser, arranger, teacher and writer who lives in the North West of the UK.
His music has been performed and broadcast by many leading musicians and
released on several record labels. It has also been published by Faber and PRB.
He has written three musical guides on the music of King Crimson and has
orchestrated and arranged the music of Robert Fripp. Andrew plays flute in an
improvisation duo with former King Crimson violinist, David Cross. He is also a
keen fell walker.
P2 Bundle Goes Live Today!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., May 2, 2011
Here’s a great opportunity to get your lugs around ProjeKct Two’s first proper tour. Listening to these twenty dates back to back you’ll get a real insider’s view of how these pieces were shaped and gradually came together.
You may also need to lie down in a silent darkened room for three weeks after doing so.
Brash, fiery and not what anyone was expecting back in 1998 P2 carved future Crim repertoire out of the rarefied atmospheres of numerous clubs and swinging hot spots to create a fascinating music with often unpredictable results.
Whilst P2’s trail-blazing path is now easily recognised and broadly assimilated thanks to hindsight, at the time both performers and audiences had embarked on a journey into the unknown. 13 years on it sounds wild and thrilling still.
As with other bundles we’ve done, if you’ve already purchased the five concerts that were previously available but want to buy the tour bundle we’ll give a free concert of your choice from elsewhere in the archives. Send an email to email@example.com to claim your freebie.
