Just need to get the final mix down, but 95% done with another track where I try to mimic some of the older sound effects electronic instruments gave - maybe hints of some Eastern European techno I've heard, a little trance influence... some synthwave maybe...

Love that...great patches...and the way it evolves into the sequences. VNV Nation uses some of those type sounds. I was just thinking about this Ladytron song...Well the last few seconds LOL

That's tight...I been listening to some old "doom" metal lately. I don't know but there ia something fascinating about this performance, IMHO.

His voice sounds like chocolate mousse tastes.

Quote from: Luther Martini on June 27, 2022, 02:30:04 PMOne of my favorite songs by the late, great Frank Zappa, "Dumb All Over", along with "The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing", and "Heavenly Bank Account" formed a religious trilogy on the 1981 album, "You Are What You Is".

Here is a video clip "Dumb All Over" in a live performance, 1981:


And her is a video displaying the song's lyrics while playing the album version:


I think Zappa is the greatest musician who ever lived! But I've never heard this, so thanks!

Zappa may have been great, but he was definitely a weird cat. He said this was better than the Beatles. The drummer sounds like she's building a shed.

I don't know how to post it with my phone, but I just found something at YouTube that's pretty cool:

'String Theory' by Lyapunov

You won't regret checking it out!

Thank you for the suggestion.  I found, watched, and listened to the video; truly amazing sound, and what a marvelously creative video.

Also regarding Zappa, I too think that he was one of the greatest musicians who ever lived. It is unfortunate that he passed away at such an early age.  I would love to see and hear what today's political and social environment would have inspired him to create.

To the_antithesis' post about Zappa's appreciation for The Shaggs, I think that perhaps Zappa had the ability to hear and enjoy music where many people do not. That could contribute to the perception that he was a "weird cat" (some people say that about me too, and being rather fond of cats, I have always taken it as a compliment).  To the point of music coming from unconventional sources, here is a video on YouTube of a young Frank Zappa appearing on the Steve Allen Show in 1963 playing the bicycle.

Steve Allen was really good at hosting live TV. I may check out some more Zappa. I only had one album of his, the one about the "Eskimo".

I remember that, but thought it was Merv Griffin.

I've been a Steve Allen fan since he played in The Benny Goodman Story. What great music that was!

Part i. I wrote a requiem years ago after a friend died. I was expressing feeling tongue-tied because it was sudden, and nothing was said.
Part ii. I found a gorgeous vocal sample of an opera singer online, so I wrote part ii around it...a bit more cheerful. Requiems are traditionally a cat-ho-lick mass. Screw that. They don't own death, just because they caused so much of it.

I have for many years been a fan of tsugaru jamisen, a style of shamisen that originated in Aomori Prefecture, in northern Honshu, Japan.  There are many accomplished tsugaru jamisen musicians, but one of my favorites is Chie Hanawa.

Here is a video of Chie from October 2011, performing on a street in Hirosaki City, Aomori Prefecture, Japan.
