@ nightspore: hitting the nail right on the head again, are we? :cool: Clap-clap-clap, you're really good at these kinds of explanations!! It's like listening to Mozart in Mozart's time and listening to Mozart now. A common mistake in historical movies is having a whole audience in a room sit there in reverent silence while the music plays.

Thanks, Ugo. I wish the concerts I'd attended had been in a reverent silence. Alas, the mere site of the conductor's baton tends to provoke fits of coughing!

I've been bugged about this mythical "12:12" thing going on in the forum, as I hadn't heard to the new mix album yet, and I say THANK YOU FOLKS for putting up a sample on 4shared, as I got really curious and had no other way to hear what you were talking about.

Anyway, my response is more or less in line with the Angry Video Game Nerd: "WHAT was he THINKING??" Goodness, that sounds atrocious! "CLACK! CLACK! CLACK! CLACK! CLACK! CLACK! CLACK! CLACK! CLACK! CLACK! CLACK! CLACK! CLACK!" If Mike had buried it under the mix a little more, to make it sound like it's just there, instead of ramming it down your ears, it could have worked, but... urrgh! As Saramago would write it, "Men, forgive him, for he knows not what he has done".

"Playing Roxanne but sloppy" is a hilarious way to describe it. Jim made my day.

Ahh, yes, the coughing. It even seems like there is a written law saying that someone MUST cough during a performance. Has any composer already written a Concerto for Coughing Audience and Orchestra already? Someone should. But that wouldn't be as bad as the time a piece was interrupted by a ringing cell phone, twice! TWICE!! The conductor had to restart the piece TWICE because of a ringing cell phone! And that was a special night, as I had invited my mother and my started-dating-two-days-prior girlfriend to go along.

You start to wonder whether postmodernism arose precisely so that those intrusive noises can be skipped over. ("It's OK - they're part of the work!")  :laugh:

Ha haaaa! - that joke is wearing a bit thin now Nightspore.

Mustapha and I would like to make a statement requesting that our privacy be respected at this time - and that we be allowed to get on with the rest of our lifes, peacefully, away from public intrusion.


;)

Her?

Says on page 1, he.

Both? Trans (not the Neil Young one), or??

Sorry I asked.

I think the 12:12 part is perfectly calculated by Mike.  It's a bit like the slightly out of time and perceivably un-structured piano notes in the thunderstorm section of Part 2.

Actually, Wiga has gone away for a few days. Perhaps expect a knock on the door, Scatter?  :)

Its undoubtedly really noticeably different from the original...(no shit Sherlock) sounds a bit like a loose component on a wheel, or those annoying click clack things kids used to put in the spokes of their push bikes...lollysticks, that it....twanging against the metal spokes...

I still like it...its just different....wouldnt be much point in buying it if it was exactly the same would it? apart from making Mr O even richer...

It does work better in the 5.1 mix.

Its still annoying but it seems to make more sense in the overall soundscape of the piece.

You're welcome Jim. Get mixed up with my tus and vous. :/

Btw, you need to go collect your 'Where Are They Now' award. We thought you were lost.  :)


As for the 12:12 incident, it still doesn't get any better. "CLACK!" x13.  :/

I'm not sure I understand the meaning of that reply. We require language equivalency. However my original oppinion of the Andy Summers strum stands.
