    I'm kind of on a Lindsay Stirling kick. This one is perfect for writing to.

    I put together a mix-set. It's not recorded live, but rather compiled in MixMeister, which basically let's you mix songs together in a sequencer rather than with decks and mixer. It's good fun and you can tweak the mixes until you're happy with them.

    This is the second set I created with it. It's a selection of mellow, atmospheric progressive house. Which basically means it's fairly slow, and quite laid back, but still with a steady beat. You can check it out here: https://www.mixcloud.com/svrtnsse/svartnisse-new-tricks-for-an-old-dog/

    Lately I've been listening to movies-particularly horror/thrillers- as I write. ironically they're doing great as I'm revising. Maybe as I'm hearing lots of people get killed I'm afraid I'll be next. However this crazy method is working, I like it.

    I put together a new mix set. It started out with mostly EBM/Industrial tracks, but then I added in some other things and then it just got silly. It's 32 songs in less than 50 minutes and there's a lot of playing arounds with the transitions. I'm still uncertain about whether this was more fun for me to put together than it will be for others to listen to. ;)

    I think I was told by my music teacher to not get my bow wet...I thought it was because it wouldn't work while wet.
    I do love her facial expressions and dancing while playing.

    Needless to say, my mind isn't that good to move the bow, put the fingers on the right strings and dance around at the same time. That's worse then rubbing stomach, patting head and tapping foot. Beyond my minds ability.

    I saw that TMBG and The Decemberists were part of a thing in Chicago in which 25 bands cover each other's songs. The band that made me most curious was GWAR covering Kansas…

    Song of the morning. Orchestral version of this "classic" futurepop song.

    GWAR (God what an awful racket) rules. Unfortunately their singer died recently.

    Depends on what kick I'm on. Usually it's soundtracks (to help me brainstorm), power/symphonic/or prog metal for the blood pumping awesomeness, or something like that. These days I'm streaming Spotify's Gothic South playlist. I'm not actually sure what it is. It's a lot of folk music, I guess. It's not quite country. It's something else entirely. What ever it is, it's fantastic.
     
  14. Catrin Finch is a remarkable Welsh harpist. I saw her last month playing with African musician Seckou Keita and it was really fascinating.

    This tune was linked by the official PSB facebook account, and it really is a great cover of this 80's classic.

    The new video for Kite's Up For Life was just posted earlier today and it's an amazing song - at least if you're into 80's inpsired synthpop:

    And the track of the morning is this one. A rather funky piece of progressive psytrance, and then they throw in the vocal bit from Going Under by Evanescence. It works out really well but it drove me nuts before I figured out where the voice came from.

    Been cranking a classic soundtrack lately (maybe 'classic' is an exaggeration, but still, it's ace)

    Cowboy Bebop OST

    Tank! by Seatbelts
