48 streaming videos now installed on visuals.
unfortunately the high compression in conjunction with a low
frame rate does make it impossible to watch the "binder"
between picture and sound. however, it was meant to give you
a first rough impression. every video got perfectly digitized
and they exist now as cd-rom files, also for sale in the future
on my new label dignose. more infos when dignose gets opened.
collabs audio2 project started. this time we have more interested
participants than originally planned. nevertheless i think we
should try if it works with the lucky number of 13. you can
follow the steps in progress in collabs
two years ago the hall of fame in cleveland ohio chose can
to be taken on. an exhibition of typical band items was planned
and i suggested to rebuild the very first can studio, edition
september 1968. the idea seemed to hit but then nothing was
to be heard anymore. now there is a plan to open an equivalent
rock or poplike museum in groningen near the border to holland.
i was contacted about it and so i repeated my idea. this time
the setup of the old can studio seems to be regarded more seriously
and hopefully visitors can make themselves an idea how the old
can records got banned on tape. recently there have been several
contacts of students writing about this recording "phenomenon".
it would be much easier for them in the future to find out under
which conditions records like delay or monster movie were established.
la luna by u-she, first 2 steps in progress

really outdone yourself with this one. it's a major, major
achievement even with all of the very obvious electronic
sounds, the mere fact that it sounds musically like it's
about 10,000 years old is astonishing. this sounds like
it could just as easily could have been some field recording
from around some neolithic bonfire somewhere off in darkest
europe as it could be some live-in-studio electronics work.
u-she's vocal on this is really amazing, as well...very
evocative, chant-like, perfect. even though it clearly fits
into the whole new music thing, it doesn't sound like it
belongs there, and pulls you more toward any directions
of cultures that haven't 'disconnected' with the primal
world around them...as you might find in australia, new
guinea, tibet, mongolia, parts of africa or south america,
and the like. i had to listen to it twice in succession
just to take it all in!
and bye for now
