From a fly on the wall May 10, 2007

This is a very welcome introduction to the LCG, as if the group were sharing their music-making as frankly as possible with us craftless listeners.
Each of the three takes of House Symmetrical has its own identity. Subjectively, I found that the second take has the greatest impact; the musicians had the groove and were attacking it with redoubled commitment. The third sounds slightly more relaxed.
The C major circulation comes as a relief after that worrying symmetrical scale. Are circulations always as serene as this? From a listenerís viewpoint, they seem to have the virtue of freedom from self-expression. The music can speak for itself as the íplayerí is the whole group rather than any individual.
Iíd wish the LCG5 spectacular success, if it wasnít for that contract... as Groucho Marx said in A Night at the Opera, "As long he doesnít sing too often, he can just break even".

I never heard of Theo Travis before until I heard this improv. This reminds me a bit of Tangerine Dreamís early work back before they became a full-on synth band. Very atmospheric and Read more

A fascinating little improv - nice to hear Robert playing with a flautist again and creating a rather moody and sombre piece that has bags of atmosphere and some tension.
Thanks for sharing this so soon after its Read more

The random aphorism on the page when I visited this Hot Tickle was: "Tomorrow" is the first lie of the Devil." This is quite pertinent as I think this little snippet sounds as if it could be lifted Read more

The dark suspense continues in various ways. There are five pieces, but I hear it as one piece, without interlude. On the other hand, each piece is standing on its self, with its own unique power- and Read more

I find this to be one of Robertís breakthroughs. It has feeling elements putting the best of Soundscapes with a level of soloing that is heart felt but dark. It is also more open that a transition has been Read more

Glorious. I found this to be a whole new soundscape experience. The darkness, the rhythms, that amzing held note in the fantasia section - all I could do was sit and soak it up as if (mixing metaphors) Iíd discovered Read more
