Maybe people are too blissed-out to comment …
  Sat. 12/5/15 6:55am Mark R.:

Wow that Richard Skelton piece was so beautiful...
  Sat. 12/5/15 7:00am Mark R.:

The sound to be found in nature can have a very slow groove. A groove embedded by silence, and so slow it can almost only be felt while spending a few hours in the nature at sea, during a forest trip, in open fields, etc... It is this groove and the'silence' of nature that was an inspiration for the Fieldtone compositions.

Book of air is a series of bundled compositions exploring the parameters of sound and time.Fieldtone is the first. Fieldtone refers to 'Roomtone' which is the 'silence' recorded at a location or space when no music is played or dialogue spoken. Every room is different, and these recordings always carry their unique character. The compositions of Fieldtone are inspired by the tempo and sonic textures of specific nature locations. can have. By embedding the sound to be found in nature, this silent slowness into the compositions, the details of the sounds played become much more prominent. In this way the silence itself, amplifies the sounds that are played, and will also amplify the room surrounding the listener.

Book Of Air ‎- Fieldtone
It's on vinyl!
  Sat. 12/5/15 7:01am Mark R.:

It looks to me like the Book of Air recording is available as a 2-LP vinyl.

David and I were both furiously typing on google!
Avatar Sat. 12/5/15 7:04am David Vanbellinghen:

Ha ha Mark! Not Google. I directly went see on Discogs. ^^

Good Morning. Improvisations, ah sounds good.
  Sat. 12/5/15 7:27am Mark R.:

You went to discogs and I went to Sub-Rosa's site. At any rate, it sounded good and I'd love to hear more sometime. Maybe next week!

Good morning Jeffrey and planeteers, just tuned in. Hey, I just bought a concert ukulele. Suggestions as to which tunes to learn? ("Brasil" is first up, because I hear samba whenever I hear a ukulele.) My fretting skills are, well, so-so.

wow.......just wow.........the "perfect tracks" just keep coming......Nepenthe......

Good morning. I just tuned into this set of music- I so dig it. Plus, I'll hit Archive sale, probably next week; been going for about ten years. (As for Joana Newsom tix, wnyc's Sound Opinion guys debated her- one loved, one hated. Funny.)

Jeffrey will probably tell us this too: the Jill Cislaghi LP is newly available via Forced Exposure records as of a couple of weeks ago, just ordered it. Cislaghi is now labelmates with the amazing Collie Ryan of "Computer Chess" fame.
