Did you do something to bring out more bass in Mr. Giant Man this time? Maybe it's my receiver, or maybe because I dewaxed my ear, but after the funny horn blew, I heard a lot more brass underneath than usually.

I can't listen to it on headphones though: the stereo is crucial, and my left ear is almost useless

Anytime you have an earworm, use the Riley Method: Imagine slicing a piece of it off and repeating it over and over and over as done here. This method of earworm-breaking has helped me countless times. Your mileage may vary.

ahhh terry riley ... not too far from fripp ... as far as revox machine delay/loops are concerned.

steve reich did the same on early 1960ies pieces ... "it's gonna rain" etc.

Avatar Thu. 2/2/17 3:21pm Rich in Washington:

@Guido: spot on. Eno was inspired by Riley's tape work, and then demonstrated the technique to Fripp, who adopted it.
Avatar    Thu. 2/2/17 3:21pm fred:

@Guido: I disagree about Reich's early tape pieces

Avatar Thu. 2/2/17 3:22pm Rich in Washington:

for years, I used to have my television run through digital delay machines, so would mess with everything like this. I need to do it again. It annoys my wife to no end, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/2/17 3:24pm coelacanth∅:

yes, Fripp "adopted" it.
...i'm a huge Fripp fan, but yeah that was Eno's brilliance that created frippertronics.

i did not say fripp was the first ... just sayin'

a firend of mine is a specialist in livelooping.
and he does live shows with the traditional line-up againg:
two revox-machines for the main part, the first rdeocrding feeding tape to the second and the second playing and feeding back signal to the first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/2/17 3:29pm coelacanth∅:

well it was dubbed "frippertronics" after all, by somebody...maybe even Eno.
Avatar Thu. 2/2/17 3:30pm psysci:

i remember heading some similar stuff from Pierre Schaeffer

a BUNCH OF HOOLIGANS WHO LISTEN TO WEIRD MUSIC!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/2/17 3:33pm coelacanth∅:

i once got to my friend's house, as a youngster in the 70s...the friend who'd turned me on to Eno...and he had most of his basement wall covered with pegboard and 1" magnetic tape threaded around many thread spools, feeding through a reel-to-reel.
i learned something that day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/2/17 3:34pm MD:

lovable freaks like my mom and dad!!!
Avatar Thu. 2/2/17 3:36pm Rich in Washington:

It was indeed Eno who dubbed it Frippertronics. Heavenly Music Corporation from No Pussyfooting is, I read, the actual recording of Fripp being introduced to tape delay in Eno's studio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/2/17 3:36pm coelacanth∅:

hahaha! was that track too much of a liability?
Avatar Thu. 2/2/17 3:37pm Rich in Washington:

@Guido: It's cool that there are people still doing it with actual tape machines.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/2/17 3:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@Rich: ...If I learn nothing else today...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/2/17 3:39pm coelacanth∅:

i use 8-track cartridges for looping. (since they're already looping)

it's fun trying.
i played a few lines on a casio through this setup and it almost sounded like some terry riley.
Avatar Thu. 2/2/17 3:42pm V Priceless:

maybe we should all chip in to send Donald a deck of 'oblique strategies'...it could help.

Thank Conny plank who was producing on his own risk and trying to sell it to companies.
No Kraftwerk recording artist career without Plank.

If I had my wish of the power of invisibility, I'd sneak into Conny PLank's studio and steal the master tapes he supposedly has of the Devo sessions that had all of the Eno contributions on it before they were deleted in the final mix.
