I want!


The Wine of Silence review from AMG
The unique contents of this release are hard to divine from the cover, which lists three contributors: British progressive rock guitarist Robert Fripp, his longtime producer David Singleton, and composer Andrew Keeling. Together they accomplish something that has been done in parts before, but never in toto. The genesis of the work begins with Fripp's Frippertronics, improvisations that made extensive use of tape loops to build larger structures. These evolved into what Fripp called Soundscapes, which used digital electronics to replace and expand upon the tape component. This album is based on Fripp's Soundscapes, which have been subject to two further steps. First, Singleton, with Keeling's help, scored them for orchestra. This kind of thing -- scoring classical-influenced rock improvisations for orchestral instruments -- has been done by the New York ensemble Bang on a Can and other groups, although not precisely with the effect Fripp and company accomplish here. The second step is more novel: the orchestral (and in two cases choral-orchestral) pieces are then subjected once again to electronic manipulations, many of which seem to divide the forces spatially. What's the overall effect? The group of pieces as a whole is quasi-sacred, and all the overlapping textures build and recede quietly in a manner a bit reminiscent of the music of Arvo Pärt. If you like the Eastern European minimalists, you'll probably like this recording; if not, you may find it a bit ponderous, with too many undifferentiated events happening at once. But even those at the negative reaction extremes will find a good deal of interest in the possibilities this unique concept opens up.

I can listen to Let The Power Fall and God Save The Queen all day long. I saw Robert Fripp do his soundscapes thing live, but the most interesting part of the evening was him talking to the audience.

I just have a feeling the orchestral stuff would strike me the same way.

North American Tour announced. With members of Zappa's touring band.
Are they a separate thing? Or are they in King Crimson for the tour?

Does this mean Ray White might sing In The Court of the Crimson King?

That would be boss...

They're opening for King Crimson.
I saw the ZPZ band (Scott Thunes, Mike Keneally, Ray White, Robert Martin and Joe Travers) last year and they were incredible. The hologram thing was decent but I think this tour is hologram-free.
That's kind of a dream ticket for me. I really hope they bring it to Europe.

No, Bozzio's a no-show. Which blows, but that's how it goes.

They probably didn't have room in the van for his drum kit.

Scott Thunes was a great band leader. Frank loved the fact that the band hated him, too. Behind Neil Peart, he also has the most mispronounced last name in rock. Good bass player.

I'm a little worried about the core of the band always playing the Titties and Beer - Thing Fish kind of Zappa stuff, but I doubt that will happen at this show..
