muted modulation...


...:::...lately, i've been quietly transitioning my day-to-day. as projects move from design into production and documentation, they require very different frames of mind (and so different thoughts tangentially spiral off in the landscape of my head...creating different vistas and orientations, creating new ways of seeing things)...

i find the challenge is to maintain concept, even if it's form or detailing hold the essence of an idea through the process of it's shaping (sometimes it wanders off and i have to track it down, following the soft imprint of it's footsteps where it lightly bent the grass)...

and if these tasks of mine were sounds, i think right now their modulations would be muted...not quite certain of the notes they are aiming to reach. and so i try a sound out softly at first...transitioning it around in my throat...turning a closed-lipped hum into an open-mouthed "o" noise. and i am happy with letting it float there right now. suspended, almost paused, it promises the most wonderful possibilities in this quiet place. because, i know that when i figure out, finally, how i should shape it into what it wants to be, that it will project a resonance that will ring and ring and ring with a most beautiful clarity..:::...

You have amazing taste in music. I am came across your blog via Little White Earbuds. I myself have been on a huge Marc Romboy kick. Love his label too. Also love the Radio Slave mixes of Moan. Radio Slave has been producing amazing tracks the last 7 months.

Cheers from Santa Fe.


p.s. think your links are down.

wie wär's, wenn du etwas weniger fordernd wärst und auch mal danke dafür sagst, was du hier alles umsonst bekommst?! muss nicht jeder sofort merken, dass du deutscher bist!

Thank you, modyfier, for the great job on your blog! I am sure the links will be up again soon, so calm down & be nice, anonymous...

ok, so according (is this the right word?) to the post of jan i would like to apologize for my last post.
i am a big fan of your blog for about a half year. and even if i dont like every track there are some that i wont miss in my life. So you would do me and i think many other people out there a big flavour if you would post them again.

Greetings for germany

ps: i especialy like all releases of stephan bodzin, trentemöller is also doing a great job and the radioslave remix of agorias baboul hair cutting is the greatest peace of music i heard in my life. thank your for that.

I think the toughest part is being able to have things remain suspended, and not on pause. So many times I look for a cadence and end up with a stuck note.
