Re: Shock of the new . . .

I need more Matmos then -- I totally agree about the "playful" element.

24 minute epic "Supreme Balloon" from his (? this is just one guy right?) latest can be heard here: http://www.kosmikradiation.com/archive.htm (3rd hour of Aug 27 show) It's "Autobahn" for airships!

I have never really heard Zaireeka in the 4 channels -- I bet I could find some people to put together a hearing somewhere, hmmmmm . . . .

(Though even here, the 4-speaker set up is very much like Stocki's "Gesang der Junglinge" from c. 1959 of course! Not a new idea, but pretty cool that someone's still going there.)

In fact, to get back to my "live music is the way out?" notion -- one thing you can do live that you can't do on a record is mess around with spacial effects by having lots of speakers in weird places. I can't think of anyone who really does this!
