audio release was supported by patrons via #Patreon
My favorite element of #music is timbre. To me, more than melody or harmony, the texture of a sound makes all the difference. If it didn't matter, why would we have bothered to make effects pedals? In particular, I tend to really appreciate nearly any sort of distortion. Not autotune, though. Fuck that.
#TIL Pink Floyd got it's name from Blind Boy Fuller's Country Blues 1935-1940 album wherein blues historian Paul Oliver writes about Pink Anderson and Floyd Council as examplary of the Piedmont blues style. This style refers to a fingerpicking method that results in a ragtime-based rhythm. That style was notably used by Arlo Guthrie in "Alice's Resturaunt."

In a series of specially commissioned performances utilising Grainger’s recently rebuilt free music ‘machines’ a group of artists and musicians offer their own multifaceted readings of Grainger’s ‘freedom’, inviting the audience to consider what the term might signify today.
after going on a big rant about David Gilmour ruining Pink Floyd, I commented that I might have liked it better if it was released under a different band name. Gilmour IS a great guitarist. I just now stumbled onto The Orb's "Metallic Spheres" which includes David Gilmour and Youth on bass and production. Not totally different than Gilmour-era Floyd, I have to say I rather like it. Props to @Admin for getting me to really give this the think it deserves.
