    Hallo Kelemvor, seems like Rush is not your overall top artist anymore, it's Ludwig van. Maybe you should reconsider your leadership of the ad-hoc group :) Mach's gut, und viele Grüsse!

    yesterday I was watching "Don Giovanni" on TV, it was transmission from New York and it was amazing spectacle. In Poland we can rarely watch operas in TV, especially on polish TV channels, so I was shocked... What about your country? :)

    You're welcome. My birthday is on February 22nd. Well, it was Mozart's birthday yesterday, hence the joke :). I have listened to way more Renaissance music, even Medieval music... but someone once said there was Mozart / Beethoven persons, not that it was impossible to like both, but that it's a bit like ice cream flavors, each one has their favorite :P. It seems to me, that I prefer Mozart so far. But of course, Beethoven is great :)

    Thank you, I will check this out soon. By the way - you said classical composers are dead. They can't be dead, they are immortal! :D That's the truth about classical music - even new, ordinary, music with repeated melody won't kill melody, which has been written hundreds of years ago. Even those who "can't stand classical music" knows and can sing a lot of classical works, but forget songs, which they used to listen to during their childhood. They are unaware of this. It is funny :D

    wow, that's great :) What can you recommend me from Beethoven works? :D Or maybe you can tell me something about other composers, which I don't know yet? I know, I just started listening to classical music, but we say in our country: It's never too late :D

    Oh my God, I don't know, I love a lot of his piano concertos, espiecially 20th, but early piano concertos are also charming, so It's difficult to answer your question o.o

    hello! Well, of course, when I was a little girl, I used to go to classical concerts sometimes. Last year, I was six or seven times? I don't remember. In my town we have philharmonic, but interesting concerts are rarely issued. It's sad. In December I was on Mozart's opera in Poznań, it was my first time, and it was amazing performance. Anyway, 21st piano concerto isn't my favourite production, but I love that too. :D

    Well, yeah. It's the same for me. Thrash/metal was always a tough genre for me to get into. My Megadeth trolling a couple years ago was all ignorance on my part. I really believed they were an overrated band. But during all that outrageous online chatter I periodically revisited their music and one day it "hit me" and I realized how awesome they really are. I believe it was "Countdown to Extension" that brought be on board and then the two piece albums after that. Mooney started hating me after that. lol. And yeah, I've tried Testament, Slayer, and some of those other thrash bands, but nothing has really hit me yet as epic. I really want to find the next band that could be Megadeth part 2 or Maiden part 2. However, I'm thinking, that band probably doesn't even exist. I don't want mediocre, I want that best! Is that to much to ask?! And no, I don't know much about death metal, I don't think, but I know I have visited via youtube etc. on occasion, but nothing stands out in my mind.

    Wouldn't really call myself a 'fan' of anything, I just happen to listen to their music a lot ;) I like discovering other dark ambient artists too, some are really good but I'd consider Atrium Carceri one of the best so far.

    Yeah I still remember some old days when you listened to Bad Religion, Beethoven and some black metal in the same day. :D Btw who makes those genre sampler playlists on Spotify? Are those lists made by individual users like on LastFM or some average user rating per song? Everyone perceives music differently, that's normal. Sometimes it's even more difficult to describe what I love about certain music. "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture" <- I don't know who first said this, but usually it's very true. :) Np, hopefully you''ll discover something you like. ;)

    Still do any thrash metal? Ever hear Flotsam and Jetsam? I didn't see it in your lib and they are new to me. Sometimes I like to look for random lists and THIS ONE caught my eye. If a list has some of my favorites in there, I'm inclined to trust the source and look into the other albums I'm not familiar with. That said, Doomsday for the Deceiver seems to be rare gem. With Jason Newsted in there as well before he was in Metallica was also a reason to check it out. The album is a bit rough on production, similar to other thrash albums in that era. Shredding guitar solos, crunchy riffs, screaming vocals... isn't that what it's all about?! :D

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3QwAHPNsA8 SOme more neo-classical metal, again with progressive death metal thrown in. Suspecting that this will be a niche genre fusion I'm gonna love, just listen to that bass purr though! Starting to suspect I'd listen to classical more if it was a bassier genre.

    Hey. Haven't spoken in a while. Just wanted to say I've come to realise the beauty of Beethoven. He is without a doubt, in my opinion, the greatest composer. Expresses feelings no other form of music has the ability to do for me. Hope you're keeping well.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1f7XwCsx4fs Well, Infectious Grooves are basically the archetypal funk metal band to me (always found Red Hot Chili peppers overrated,) but as far as pure jazz metal....well, you know my views on jazz. I suppose the closest I got was jazz fusion, and I think of recent Cynic, Gordian Knot's more distorted tracks and Ever Forthright. Exivious is also pretty highly regarded in the fusion style, but the term jazz was thrown around so much to describe them that I never looked them up. Maybe the best example I can have that actually stuck with me is parts of Obscura's album Omnivium, though that album gets pretty rough...did a remaster that has had 5/6 requests for me to send it, though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7YDpYO7h2s Any track from this aside from Ocean Gateways should have some jazz influence on the bass, it actually works well when it's not free jazz. Ne Obliviscaris's bassist counts as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMorAdnCixg

    I have to admit I'm not a big fan of cool jazz because most often trumpets and saxophones stay in middle register and it sounds like it's played without much passion. Since harmony and dynamics is something you're very fond of in music it is even more strange you became interested in cool jazz. :D

    Hace 17 días
  • SAGYology

    Obvious start with cool jazz would be Birth of the Cool by Miles Davis. Although I find this shift from free jazz to cool jazz quite sudden. :D Especially because I already recommended you Bill Evans who is probably the most famous musician of cool jazz school. Maybe it will be a completely different story with Dave Brubeck's Time Out or Lennie Tristano's self titled album released in 1956. There's another Lennie Tristano album of the same name released in 1947, so make sure you double check the track list.

    Btw If you're interested in exploring jazz with random artists you can try jazz radio. However, looking at channels I noticed free jazz is not on the list. I can stream and scrobble tracks from jazz radio on Clementine audio player. Maybe some plug-ins for the same purpose are available on foobar.

    Yeah, Frank had a great sense of humor! I think the general public thought of him as a very controversial figure who said everything he wanted on TV talk shows, although I don't see any of his points as being controversial. He was simply driven by common sense and kept his self-integrity throughout entire life. The problem with free jazz music is the sense of chaos. Mind is always trying to find some kind of order and when you can't tell a difference between melody, harmony and rhythm it can be very confusing. That's the case with some Coltrane albums like "Ascension" or "Om". Impressions is very good, it's actually one of my favourite Coltrane albums. I had those parody lyrics under my LastFM name section. :D

    We found drugs in a coke-less place, we found sluts in a hoe-less place. :D Sorry, but I couldn't contain myself from posting this parody lyrics I read long time ago and they somhow still managed to remain in my subconscious mind. :D

    Funk metal has pretty prominent bass as well, as does jazz metal, though you know how I find jazz chaotic even when it's composed. Technical death metal is definitely the best metal subgenre regarding bass, though I still think not enough bassists mess with effects in general. Dead Letter Circus do it to awesome effect.

    At many moments during listening I wonder if some of these guys in Causa Sui are previous band members from Wolfmother. Have you ever heard their debut album? When I first heard them I thought I was discovering my new favorite band. Unfortunately, they split up and the second album was just mediocre. It was this song that I was thinking of because of the instrumental aspects of it. Although all the other songs have lyrics and the leader singer reminds me of Robert Plant... which might not be a good thing as I don't think your a Zeppelin fan if I remember correctly. Anyway, that's where my thoughts have been leaning towards as I listen to Causa Sui.

    My listening experience to Causa Sui is similar to Kaki King when I first started listening to her debut album (my first listen from her collection). At first, it sounded random to me and I wasn't sure about it, but for some reason I couldn't put it down, and I kept listening over and over again. And the more I listened, the more I loved it--and now it's one of my all-time favorite albums. I'm feeling the same way regarding this Causa Sui album... with each listen I gain a deeper understanding and appreciate towards it. I'm hesitant to put last.fm love markers on it, but I might do it very soon one of these days. What are your thoughts about it? Do their other albums compare?

    A bit tragic, isn't it? Such chunky bass tones and so many metal bands do so little with it. Bands that break that pattern in metal I tend to adore, though...some I even tried to get into and couldn't, like Scale the Summit.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNk2lVK3Vfk THis is pretty much the only Rick Rubin production I like...it's kinda ugly, but given how American Head Charge were at the time, it really fit and gave them a grizzly, layered sound overall.

    I see, most people probably have same initial reactions to opera. :) I remember when I first discovered Therion and when multiple voices sang the same lyrics. For me it was very confusing. :D Hahah yeah other members of Mothers most certainly consumed drugs. I think I read somewhere how Zappa made this song to torture other members when they weren't under the influence of drugs. :D Free jazz? That's like recommending black metal artists to someone new to heavy metal, at least those "completely" free jazz albums where every member can at any time play whatever they feel like it. I have to admit I'm not a fan of free jazz but there are some albums with free jazz elements that I heavily enjoy like "Ask the Ages" by Sonny Sharrock. For a free jazz album where musicians have full freedom I'd recommend "Free Jazz" by Ornette Coleman. Saxophone sections on most free jazz albums are really the most extreme, so if you get through opening track on Ask the Ages you might like it. :)

    Hmm, who did the production on G/Z/R (Geezer Butler's solo work)? Was always more of a fan of that project personally, just has something that hooks me more. If what you say is true, maybe that makes Rick Rubin a great guy....he still can't leave headroom worth crap haha. The weird thing is that St. Anger actually had great bass, you just can't hear it at all if you watch the live in studio ehearsal lol (I tried way too hard to like the album at one point...damn the The Unnamed Feeling fan remaster lol)

    Interesting, I'm surprised to hear that. Moonlight sonata probably counts more than a thousand recordings. :D I think most of those opera excerpts I liked are from Rigoletto, though I have to admit I'm not sure how would I react to opera in full because on long term opera vocals tiresome. Other Can albums are very different, they don't have this smooth/polished sound. Songs on Tago Mago like Aumgn or Peking O are very weird. It's a combination of drum and bass and mantra singing. Still not as weird as The Return Of The Son Of Monster Magnet. :D

    Yep :) There's exchange programs but I want to focus on finishing my career first. Apparently there's high need of people like me in England, so that's a good start, I guess. You don't know how many people in England dedicate to Spanish literature. It's amazing. Well, I hope you find something you like.

    Ahh, opera is always a great way to get into Italian! To be honest, most of Argentines have italian heritage. When most of people see an average argentine person, chances are they look Italian :) The Buenos Aires spanish accent, my own, kind of sounds like Italian too. I want to learn Italian too! Some people think they get it easily, but I'm a bit reluctant to do that because I think many words may look like a similar word in Spanish, and mean another thing. This happens with Portuguese for example. And that sounds cool, I've never been out of the country. I want to visit most of Europe, to be honest :))

    Yeah, I think she might be learning to sing a bit better. Not that she'll ever be some sort of Whitney Houston or anything, but in Stay she sounds less annoying (and I saw a live performance where she did not sing out of tune, I'm not even kidding, that was amazing for her standards, but I guess she can improve more). Fast rhythms aren't too vocally exigent and suit her old style. I liked Amy Winehouse better, though she does a lot of jazz. From the new ones, anyway. The problem with modern soul (Alicia Keys, Joss Stone and others) is that it gets mixed with pop. Etta James is good too. As for male singers, Otis Redding and Sam Cooke are good choices in classic stuff, I haven't listened to a lot of male soul vocalists.

    I got so excited about languages that I forgot to reply about my family. They were Volga Germans, the famous German by blood, Russian by nationality people. My grandma always said something about they being closer to Frankfurt, so I guess she referred to the parents of my great-grandparents or something because it's so hard to wrap my head around it. I know Volga Germans went to Russia since 1767. My family belonged to the Catholic minority, and also escaped before the communists commited genocide of these people. For many, they were neither German or Russian, so. But communities of this kind are strong here, and so I found a genealogy tree with data to start and go on finding my roots. This is concerning my grandma (the mom of my mom) side. My other side of the family, my mom's dad and my dad's mom are Italian, the first from Sicily, the second from Campobasso, And my grandpa on my dad's side has both Spanish and Italian heritage.

    Haha I know, I just had to make another comparison where I also can't tell the difference. :D In case of Varese I can't seem to find any other interpretation of Deserts like on "The Complete Works" at least not in its full length. Same goes for some Webern works. Only Pierre Boulez made recorded interpretations of Webern's complete works. Plus they're not some completely obscure composers for whom most contemporary classical conductors never heard about. For example let's take Beethoven's piano sonatas, there's at least dozen different interpretations. I know a few Verdi's opera pieces sang by Luciano Pavarotti and they are the only ones I like. Btw how do you like Future Days after the first spin?

    Hace 24 días
  • KingsAndQueen

    Well, if you like it enough :) I started with English, which doesn't have as many latin roots, coming from a latin-based language. So it would be a reverse situation for you. I see. What do yo think of Joss Stone? I see you're listening to her. She was the first soul artist I liked :)

    Hace 24 días
  • SAGYology

    Probably the same as I don't hear much difference between mp3 and flac. :D Luckily you can listen to all those different interpretations of Beethoven's compositions. A lot of contemporary classical fans don't have that privilege. Not that I'm complaining or anything, but there's only one recorded interpretation for complete works of Varese and Webern. Since you mentioned ballets I have to say I quite enjoyed both watching and listening to Stravinsky's Petrushka on youtube. I have to say opera was never my thing mostly because vocals take too much space from musicians and they mostly play just minimal stuff to support the vocalist/s. Anyway, I probably haven't heard enough to stick with this conclusion, it's just my observation from what I encountered so far.

    Thanks, yes, I got some help from a girl who knows german too but I wasn't going to write another shout, lol. Well, Italian would be easier if you had any base with languages as French or Spanish. What did you think of Angel Olsen?

    I am using duolingo, I can't afford a teacher right now, they're good, I can confirm that. Though, they haven't told me what to reply after someone says "Danke" or how to ask things like "How are you?". I'm guessing "Ist alle gut?" sounds kind of ~rustic~. Otherwise, I'd recommend it, their French lessons are good. I did attend French classes 2 years ago, so I'm just refreshing things daily. Well, I can't complain, here the New Year started with low temperature, and less noise than usual, since we're in summer now... it was a good thing.

    For me it always depends on how the instrument is played and then I can associate it with something. So I was only referring to the style of saxophone playing. On Summer Sessions it just has a vibe like room temperature is constantly rising. :D I can't explain with words any better. Can's Future Days really has a similar style to Causa Sui, I guess they really had a huge influence on them. Now I'm really curious if you'll like it. Well I watch TV maybe on just a couple of occasions during the year and this is obviously one of them. I think it's great, not only the sound of Vienna Philharmonics but also hall decorations, ballets, nature landscapes etc. Their interpretations are mostly old fashioned and it seems I don't have any problems with over-romanticized interpretations. Strauss family mostly composed polka dance music, so I understand if that's not your cup of tea. It's not very challenging for listeners.

    Hey, how are you? I hope you started your year very well. I was reminded of you for two reasons: one, my university has a waiting song that's an 8 bit version of Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik that makes me want to play Pokémon games every single time, and because I'm learning German (family business, I have german ancestry myself). Everything I reached is the conclusion that Deutsche sprache, schwere sprache. lol.
