haha, after hearing the test piece 'Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima' (John) my body hair stood on its tip, then i went into a hyterical fit of laughter. Luckily Andre, i'm in daylight now! i dont think i've ever been captured so quickly in a music piece as i just had. it was so instant.

on the other hand, currently listening to soap kills and Scrambled Eggs from LEBANON

Right now I’m hooked on Trent Reznor’s remix site: http://remix.nin.com/.

Posting his master tracks online for people to remix was brilliant. I can’t wait to see what he does without a record company holding him back.

I've recently rediscovered the song "Nkryptd" by Xripeen Wire, a Kenyan band. Strangely fitting for Good Friday. Shame there's virtually zero information on the internet about them.

I'm falling in love with the shuffle feature in iTunes. With over 700 mixed genre CDs, some of the mixes can be startling.

Some I've heard today:

George Jones (Country), Norah Jones (Pop), Dan Tyminski (bluegrass), Sam Cooke (soul/R&B), Kitka (Bulgarian/Eastern Europe), Beatles (Pop), Canadian Brass (Classical), Pedro Infante (Mexican), Miles Davis (Jazz), Astrud Gilberto (Brazilian Jazz), Ladysmith Black Mambazo (a capella African Vocal), Marty Robbins (Country), Jimi Hendrix (Rock), Stan Kenton (Big Band), Arturo Sandoval (Jazz), Swingle Singers (a capella Classical), Bob Dylan (Folk), Altan (Irish), Al Green (soul/R&B), Dolly Parton (Bluegrass), Los Tres Diamantes (Mexican Trio), John Lee Hooker (Blues), Connie Smith (Country), Beatrice Adriana (Rancheras), etc. mixed in with some that I didn't know I had, or who it is.

In my car I am locked out of the iPod controls, so I wait until I get home to see who it was.

This is such a blast. Sometimes the mix gets so incongruous I have to laugh out loud while driving down the road. It would be fun to make a radio station using this shuffle feature, just to imagine people all over the place going, "What the H...?"

Bachianas brasilieras by Villa-Lobos, a 1950s recording.
Conducted by the composer, sung by Victoria de los Ángeles.
The piece where she hums to a pizzicato accompaniment of eight celli—nº 5— is especially nice.
Of course I was influenced to buy it by the cover, with awesome photo of dude at work with massive cigar, and typography in tightly fitted Peignot capitals.

Jeff Beck rocks. Definitely a thing, Chris. Did you know the man has actually built cars from scratch? Too much talent for one individual.
hrant - if I have to go Googling to have the faintest notion of what you're talking about, well, I don't know if that counts. ;)

John, this combined with the description of the 20-foot+ space around your desk over at the other place I am beginning to imagine that your office has a vaulted ceiling and would be very disappointed to discover that you do not have an organ in there as well.

Really?! Ambient Black Metal doesn't have that much of a following. Especially the weird stuff, like Brenoritvrezorkre. I've listened to that song maybe twice. It's kind of hard, since it's an hour long and all! :P But I love the bit with the blast beat. It's so relentless.

Anywho! Today it's quite beautiful out. It's supposed to thunderstorm later, but hey! I love thunderstorms. I haven't listened to Flica in awhile, so I put on some Nocturnal. It's so nice. I think of him and Uyama Hiroto as Summer musicians. Their music is so warm.

At work I've just been running through the Podcast of my DJ friends, which can be found here: http://playloop.podomatic.com/ check them out if you're into House music! From Deep House to Tech House, I can recommend pretty much every mix on there.

heavy-metal Iron Maiden wannabe - some band with an appallingly bad vocalist without any hint of the inhibitions that would normally go with such a terrible voice. Not through any choice of my own. My son has a wide-ranging taste in music. Not all of it is good :o) .

After much complaining he's put on Aria, a Russian Heavy metal band.

I've just discovered, due to a forum post in another place where music is discussed as an off-topic subject, a Dutch musical ensemble of an unusual genre.

Symphonic Metal.

Epica.

The music is impressive, and the lead singer, Simone Simons, is clearly very talented.

Also, as for my own personal quest, a more direct search on Google finally yielded up a 1989 Finnish-language cover of "It's My Party", titled Oon Sun Autos.

@ Arno

Why thank you! :D I have quite an eclectic taste. I'm all over the place when it comes to music haha! Right now I'm listening to some Progressive House. It's unseasonably warm, so I think it fits nicely. It's such a sunny and bright genre.

Tell us more, James. Your link is less than instructive -- for me at least, I just get a seemingly non-clickable clock face. But "Green Day experimental album" sounds interesting...

http://Finlandia. Yes, that one, by Jean Sibelius. Ware: You gotta either play this one loud or feed the audio through an AVC.

Edit: Fuhgedaboutit. This clip has been deleted. It is pining for the fjords. It wouldn't VOOM if you put a million FLOPS through it. It is an ex-video.

Nice collection!

Ya, and from what little I've heard from his new band (anything upped to youtube doesn't stay there very long) Prince has found some deeper sounds coming off his fret board. At times his musicianship reminds me of some of Mozart's stuff. Between the common 4/4 beat phrasing structure he adds soooo much color!! Not that Mozart composed to the 4/4 beat ... but you know what I mean. They both have the ability to play within the space between the pedestrian musical structure(s).

In that guitar solo with Tom Petty I wonder how many rehearsal takes it took timing the catch that Telecaster ... which was prolly borrowed ...lool!!!

I went over to Prince's house when he played Coachella to develop some artwork. When I walked in there was a jam session going on. During my visit, he asked "Would you like to meet Larry Graham?" I immediately said yes. That was a treat.

Working with him was a pleasure, he likes very concise language and considers denim a "sloppy" fabric. The work was accomplished on my laptop very quickly.

Hrant: …nature's music makes ours seem idiotic.

I live in a rural environment on an island in one of the most biologically diverse places in North America. I walk in the woods or on the beaches almost every day. I listen with pleasure to the sounds that nature produces. And I have to say that a very large amount of the sounds produced by individual species of animals and birds are limited and repetetive. I think you would be hard pressed to find another species that produces anything like the range of sounds that humans make, or that orders those sounds in so many different ways.

I get the link ok, and can listen to it, but when I click on "Download mp3s" I am told I don't have permission. Love the packaging.

OK, now it's downloading. You just have to try more than once it seems.

A friend just gave me some old vinyl as thanks for a bit of pro amico design, one of which was WEDNESDAY MORNING 3AM by Simon and Garfunkel.

I had never heard of it, not surprisingly as I discovered (thanks to some googling), as it was their first album, released and ignored during the British Invasion of 1964. However, it was re-released a couple of years later, after their record company had added orchestration to The Sound of Silence, and that became a huge hit—which I was familiar with.

So I went straight to that track, and yes indeed, the album I had was the ’64, with the plain voice-and-guitar-only Sound of Silence. I had long known about how Columbia had jazzed up the song with strings and drums, but had never once heard the original, until yesterday. It’s nice!

A bonus is the awesome cover design, with its friggin’ huge distressed stencil lettering (NOT a font!), and the Cinemascope shot of the boys in suits and ties on a subway platform.
