Out of the muck and into the stars March 22, 2007
Written by tungarbulb
Iíve loved electronic music ever since I heard my first TV re-run horror-movie theremin licks. Walter (Wendy) Carlosí Switched On Bach was my formal initiation into the ranks of electronica fans. While Carlos utilized an entire studio built around a classic "switchboard"-type Moog synthesizer and multi-track analogue tape to virtually re-write the rules of classical performance, Frippís live improvisation in this now-lost landmark venue showers us with heavenly blue and hellfire red and every shade in between using only his trusty guitar and some sound-processing gear (certainly a far cry from the early 2-tape-deck Frippertronics setup).
Would I pay cash dollars to hear a pristine version of this concert when there are freebie bootleg versions floating around? I just did, and Iíll tell you why. My bootleg edition of this concert was made from a Realaudio capture. Realaudio is a relic of the days when "streaming" meant cramming an audio stream through a 14.4Kbps dial-up modem and hoping it didnít sound too dodgy. I still consider Realaudio to be for tin ears only. I settled for this mediocre recording of this stellar performance because barring official release, that was probably the only way Iíd ever be able to hear it. Thank you, Mr. Fripp for making top-quality versions of these excellent performances available for purchase at last!
Even though I now have the best-sounding available version of this performance, I still think Iíll hang onto my bootleg edition. Itíll make a wonderful drink coaster!

Even more than in the December Suite performances, Mr Fripp here lets his guitar speak in its own clear voice against less densely textured backgrounds. For example, At The End of Time has evolved a long way Read more

If the performance began tentatively, then a certainty and a "holding of the space" is in effect when At The End of Time is performed. The themes... colors... moods... are introduced with a deliberate sureness and Read more
