Is this forum still alive??? WONDERFUL!!!! I thought tubular.net had ceased to live a Facebook-independent life...
Anyway, also basing myself on Maria's post above here, I think I have managed to identify ALL of the instruments on Mike's rendition of Vivaldi Concerto in C. Like Maria, I can't name all the synths (maybe Richard Carter a.k.a. Korgscrew may give me a hand on this?) but I know for sure where they all are.
Section one: 4 or 5 electric guitars (probably Mike's SG Junior multi-tracked), acoustic guitar, tambourine, bass guitar, 2 mandolins, BluePeter-ish synth (first heard at 0:14-0:15), brass-like synth (either Jarre's Eminent or a Moog), Solina String Ensemble.
Section two: 3 quiet electric guitars (SG Junior again), Hammond organ with no Leslie, BluePeter-ish synth again, 2 mandolins, slightly off-beat classical guitar (José Ramirez?), no percussion at all.
The third section is a reprise of the first, so the very same instrumentation is featured in it.
Oh, and if anybody of you out there may be wondering what happened to me during all of these years, well, here's some of it.
- I became a fencing athlete and referee/judge.
- I became a certified scuba diver.
- I bought everything which Mike Oldfield has released from when I disappeared from here to right now.
- Most importantly, after 3 years spent in Italy's Civil Protection Volunteer Corps, five years ago I enrolled myself in Corpo Nazionale dei Vigili del Fuoco, i.e [Italian] National Firefighters Corps. Since then, I have become a professional firefighter.
Yes, lots of things have happened to me during all of these years.
