Music that exists in this world but is not of it. August 1, 2006
Written by leakstev
Music that exists in this world but is not of it.
I have found that each of the soundscape releases approaches this possibility with differing degrees of resonance. Some of the music flies by one day and at a later listening settles long enough to engage with in a meaningful manner. Some of the music is immediately unsettling and demands attention - work even.
That there is an emotive quality contained in the soundscapes is undeniable. There are times when my experiencing of the soundscapes is entirely connected to senses of imminent or recalled loss. In this way the soundscapes afford the listener the opportunity to reexperience their love for what was, and then to engage more fully with the what-is-to-be-becoming.
The Salisbury soundscapes are at times beautiful, mournful, playful, edgy. They are even indescribable.
For me, their real power lies in the veracity they give to the awareness and the understanding that there is benevolence and love underlying everything.
As Fripp elaborates elsewhere:
“Complex fields of intelligence, to enter our world, that is to become more fully real by becoming more fully part of the totality of worlds, need people to anchor the points between which the field of intelligence can dwell and operate. Not so much in people, as between them. In a sense, a group is giving birth to an angel by providing its "spirit" or "intelligence" a framework to inhabit. “
In this way, the Salisbury soundscapes provide the listener with the opportunity to consider larger and more intimate (or infinite) possibilities. The opportunity is there, the music falls upon the person, the person can then make their way past the equipment, the musician, the cathedral, the gauze of emotion and arrive in the place the music comes from.
The Salisbury music constitutes a wonderful opportunity by which to “reexperience ones innocence” - to visit the place music comes from.

I felt almost sneaky listening to this, as it was obviously "not ready for prime time"; sounds as if TG was learning the timing. Still, great to hear and left me wanting a bit more, as the old showbiz adage Read more

I wish DGM would dump the silly star system -- how do you "rate" music like this? How many stars do you have? Give Radiophonics a thousand. This music is the dark to the WFC’s (11/30/2000) Read more

OK, SoundScapes are beautiful and deep, mysterious and melancholy, atmospheric and soul-stirring and all that. But this concert shows they can be buckets of fun, too, in their own way. Fripp’s got an odd sense of humor (or humour) and Read more

I downloaded this concert three months ago. After a dozen or so listens, I’m only beginning to be able to sort out and articulate my feelings about it. I’ve been trying to work my way into Soundscapes (or they’ve Read more

While following the same general structure as the other soundscapes in the general time zone of this perfformance, this particular performance finds the heart of that structure and releases a fascinating interplay of tone and temperaments Read more

Though apparently this is edited down, it’s music allowed to ebb and flow at some length, which is the quality I enjoy most in Fripp’s Soundscapes (and Frippertronics) work. Nice. Had I been at the Bath train station, I would Read more

I think you’re thinking of the Construktion of Light. The track ’Thank You’ starts almost exactly the same as the little joining riff in the extra long intro to Construktion. Just my Read more

It was a big surprise to hear the embryonic version of Level 5 in ’Thank You".
No doubt: the works for/with David Sylvian was seminal.
