The are some noticeable changes in this performance comparing to the previous show in New York. Music seems to be more spacious and open as if artist was in search of the new ideas. However its mood seems to be deeply personal. And although the sound is not as clear as with NY download and overall performance maybe not as concise as its predecessor music remains moving and emotional, just like Queer Space, a piece which could either express the greatest happiness or the greatest loss...

I remember this show well. Perhaps I remember this as my favorite of Mr. Fripp’s Boston soundscape visits. Though the jam packed Boston House of Blues show from a few years earlier is another standout show (for its intense audience standing and crushed to the stage!).
In Somerville that warm summer evening, it all seemed to come together nicely.
Thank you for your many Boston performances. I hope that you will find playing music in Boston sometime in the future a worthy activity.

Wow. This may just be the perfect soundscapes - for me at least. The mood is definitely darker, but more importantly deeper, too. It unsettles (Queer Space), disturbs (Threnody and Foreboding), and soothes (Acceptance and Resolution) in a way that none of the other performances quite do. Highly recommended.

murky subterranean rumblings define the ground of the beginning of this music, then muted trumpets and strings edge into the cloudy hovering aether as the emotive colour locates squarely on the reddish-hued bronze and the gold. this would be stunning music if left at that. but it is the scale of these soundscapes that draws the listener in beyond its raw physicality, past the emotional, and into a sense of something comprehensive, utter, and thoroughly present. the space these soundscapes occupy is overwhelming but not frightening. there’s a sense of insight, of seeing well-beyond but with the assurance that you are not travelling alone and without care. indeed, i have the sense that there is an angelic presence winging you on its back. beautiful and awe-inspiring. steven

This is a very moving show, it hovers between impossible and unreachable situations in the future and the deep pain of life.
Nevertheless a very grotesque and timeless soundscapeconcert!
