What music are you listening to?


99 Luftballons

The Final Countdown (Europe)

Bring me to Life (Evanescence)

and others... The list goes on but I it depends on what I feel like listening to. When I am doing a heavy grind, I like listening to music that has a good energetic tempo. I did it for some all nighters that resulted in kicking ass especially in those hand drafting all-nighters.

It relieves the nerves and often helps to set my mind into that creative state and music is more healthier than drugs.

Let's not forget Separate Ways by Journey.

Some stuff from the 80s still kicks ass.

DEEP HOUSE BROKEN by me (self-promotion, shameless, Jawohl! (auf Deutsch))

so my first stab at a 'critical' piece of music (forgive me John Cage, mushroom collector)

Deep House is the 'serious' sound these days.  In short, it's a solid stable kick (4/4) with a simple 'deep' synth with various other themes floating around.  It's like Deadmau5 mellowed out and guess who walked into the room -  Satoshi Tomiie spinning 'scandal in new york' taking everyone to the next level...preferably hypnagogic

so I slow the tempo to about 60 beats per minute (bpm), which is about half the standard 120 bpm, that's a good healthy heart rate and drag out the ear drops of the 'deep house' standard synth - bouncing form ear to ear then distort, which is a No-No in 'deep house' the pleasurable sound....

we hiccup twice in the tune; and in a similar fashion with hands slowing down a vinyl land on a piano plucking moment as the out of synch totally inappropriate twilight zone reference (slightly), out of sound 'deep house' lands itself square 'somewhere else'

this move is an ode to Alvin Lucier

mentioned at least twice in the last 3 issues of LOG

enjoy, or don't....critical pieces are always questionable.

I should probably call it a night, but the best ever -

machiavelli --------------------- the prince

The blind stares
of a million pairs of eyes
lookin' hard but won't realize
that they will never see

Speaking of Prince...

...saw him last night. The defining moment of the show for me was a nostalgic one: the guitar solo during 'Little Red Corvette', while it was different - an elaborate modern version - still had that exact guitar tone he captured in the original, taking me back to 1983 listening to this incredible sound while I lay in bed in the dark with my little radio tuned to Carol Taylor on WNOR.
Mar 15, 15 5:50 pm

Prince live...what! Must have been an amazing show.

Mar 15, 15 8:45 pm

Last night as I finished up at work, I was listening to Moondog.

This morning, started briefly with a The Heavy pandora station.

Have since moved on to a The Sonics station.

Will probably finish the day with a Hall and Oates station.

Cradle to Cradle is a book by William McDonough the architect

Moondog - YES!  his bio on wiki intro is saweet, photo and excerpt below

Moondog, born Louis Thomas Hardin (May 26, 1916 – September 8, 1999), was an American composer, musician, poet and inventor of several musical instruments. He was blind from the age of 16. In New York from the late 1940s until he left in 1972, he could often be found on 6th Avenue between 52nd and 55th Street wearing a cloak and Viking-style helmet, sometimes busking or selling music, but often just standing silent and still. He was widely recognized as "the Viking of 6th Avenue" by thousands of passersby and residents who had no idea that this seemingly homeless eccentric standing on "Moondog's corner" was a respected and recorded composer and musician.[1]
