What Are You Listening To?
Never heard of him. Will give it a whirl. A lady friend of mine from way back when had an album of Native American music years ago but I cannot remember the title or artist. Very different to anything else I had heard up to that point. Lots of bells and shakers and ethnic drums.

Saw your song Jerome – wasn’t able to respond. Very nice – good story.

Not sure if you are familiar with Bill Miller? He is Mohican - toured with Tori Amos as her opening act and is a Grammy Award winning NAMA artist. 

Wind looms large in the experience of the first nations people … 





Very nice - there goes this month's salary...…

Tangerine Dream - Phaedra - just in that mood this morning.

Music for Airports - Brian Eno - one of those albums you play when you want to break the silence but don't want to have to consciously listen. It just works.

DATA "2-time"  cd,  1983

got this and their debut by pure accident a while ago when Amazon
mixed up orders and I got someones elses disks and they got mine,
Amazon wasn't interested in me forwarding them on to their rightful owner
or putting a 'return to sender' stamp on the packaging so I kept them...
UK electro-pop/synth-pop trio from the 1980s created by Georg Kajanus
of 1970s band Sailor fame...
quirky catchy sounds on here, reminiscent of Human League, Depeche Mode with
hints of Ultravox at times...
loved the debut and I LOVE THIS ALBUM also

almost a Talking Heads/Bryan Ferry thing happening here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNkW1Mqye_0

In a very ambient sort of mood today - William Orbit's 'Pieces in a Modern Style' is perfect for the occasion. Spectacular album.

Ed Starink - Inner Spirits

Been threatening to find some of his original stuff and listen for a while now, out of curiosity. He would slip in one of his own compositions now and then, but he otherwise synthesized and rearranged pretty much everything he could lay his hands on over about 20 years, Vangelis, Alan Parsons, Mike Oldfield, Jeff Wayne, Jan Hammer, Duran Duran, OMD - the list is endless. Don't understand why anyone would not want the real thing, or how he could do that with impunity to begin with, but apparently he has sold gazillions of "Synthesizer Greatest"'s!! Strange. Anyway - he stopped all that in the late 1990's to concentrate on composing his Universe Symphony which seems to be taking some time to complete. I confess to having one of his CD's somewhere which I acquired inadvertently and that I haven't actually listened to! I didn't mind some of this - guilty pleasure, lol! 

(One from a different compilation - I seem to remember that the title is his wife's name backwards, or something like that ... I also kinda like it Blush ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdVGDdIqn34)

The lead track on Inner Spirits ...

Brian Eno - Music for Airports - total ambient stuff. Very relaxing. I always return to this album when I want unobtrusive music. Normally when I am consciously doing something else.

Have no idea why this piece of music appeals to me. The ninth track from JMJ's ' Equinoxe Infinity' album. Something about it I can't explain. Had it on in the car the other day and I've been playing it over and over ever since. I must be losing it...

Totally agree. Music for Airports was, if I rememer correctly, created by Eno to calm pre-flight nerves.

This is often in my CD player in the car on long trips.
