  • Zig Think I'll check that Zemlinsky guy :D
    October 29 06:37 PM
  • Zig Quite a journey, In Vain is surely one of the best 21st century compositions.
    October 29 06:36 PM
  • Bedex Sweet, let me know what you think! :]
    October 1 06:22 PM
  • Bedex oops I meant Joby Talbot*
    September 30 09:42 PM
  • Bedex potatobro have you heard Jody Talbot's Footsteps/Path of Miracles? It's a choral piece I'm curious to know what you think :]
    September 30 09:33 PM
  • GamamJ My god is Tim Milelr amazing. I could not really appreciate his complexity back when you rec?d him, but checking Trio Vol. 3 now, and... speechless... The harmonic complexity and shred is beyond insane.
    September 24 10:00 PM
  • GamamJ Yeah, I'd rec you it for sure. Spoiler alert, the second track is clearly the best, but still, it's all just insane. Very challenging listen, but I can't see you struggling with that.
    September 24 09:47 PM
  • GamamJ Oh lord, sorry for all the typos in the last shoutbox. Shocked you managed to understand what I even said lol. Thanks! Also, have you ever heard Anthony Braxton?s ?For Alto?? If not, it?s prolly the ugliest hour of music I have ever heard.
    September 24 07:21 AM
  • GamamJ Hey dude! Back for some recs hahah. You got anything in the Ornette Coleman style? improv hard1bop that has little-to-no regard for consonance and key? Also, henerally getting a knack for stonal stuff, so the typical 19th century tonal classical is getting a bit stale. Got some of your atonal classical stuff to rec too? Something I could be into?
    September 21 04:48 PM
  • Zig Oh, thanks for the rec! Will surely check it and share my thoughts here :D
    August 26 08:31 AM
  • GamamJ Exactly. The energy and chemistry is awesome, but the actual music is not all that.
    August 17 08:35 PM
  • GamamJ Our tastes are so different it makes me laugh! I think Erotic Cakes might be my all time fav guitar album :S However was not overly impressed with the Aristocrats which surprised me given my love for Erotic Cakes and Minnemann.
    August 16 12:47 AM
  • GamamJ Interesting. Curious how you'll find Shawn Lane! Also, I'm guessing you will be familiar with Guthrie Govan?
    August 15 11:02 AM
  • GamamJ Oh, and Shawn Lane as well. Incredible guitarist who does everything from jazzy stuff like CHick or a smoother Holdsworth to orchestral suites. Check the debut "Powers of Ten"
    August 13 12:25 PM
  • GamamJ Hey! I'd love to hear your opinion on Plini. Check out his first EP "Other Things". A 13 minute masterpiece containing everything from cool rhythmical and melodic prog-metal to Allan Holdsworth-esque fusion. He's a kinda Jacob COllier style figure recording it all from his bedroom alone hahah.
    August 12 12:34 PM
  • GamamJ Side-note: I find it fascinating as well as really awesome how I speak to many people on this website including yourself with whom I share favourite genres, yet within those gwnres we mostly listen to entirely different stuff. Nevertheless there is still respect towards the other person?s taste from both sides. So cool and fascinating. Man, I love music :D
    August 8 01:28 PM
  • GamamJ Thanks! Found Ornette Coleman's "The Shape of Jazz to Come" as well as Herbie's Empyrean Isles super enjoyable too. Now, I'm starting to get curious, any contemporary jazz you think I could get into?
    August 8 08:59 AM
  • Zig When you get the chance, jam some Fernando Lopes Graca, he's among the best Portuguese composers.
    August 6 08:21 AM
  • GamamJ So far Zappa has been really hit or miss for me, but when he's good he's damn good! Think I'm finally starting to proper get jazz, or at least beginning to. Bitches Brew is one of the best things I have ever heard, just completely blew me away. I also Really enjoyed some Thelonious Monk that I found.
    August 5 12:32 PM
  • GamamJ On the note of Shakti. Do you have any recs similar to Mahavishnu, Return to Forever and them? Love that style. Hot Rats by Zappa had that style to it. Anything else in his discog like that?
    August 1 05:31 PM
  • GamamJ Oh, I see. As you probably already concluded, I mostly prefer the highly virtuosic classical mostly seen during the Romantic era. Paganini, Lizst, Rachmaninoff for example.
    August 1 08:29 AM
  • Zig Just jammed Hans Werner Henze's Tristan. What a banger! Gonna get into his other stuff.
    July 31 03:27 PM
  • GamamJ Will check out for sure. On another note, what classical do you listen to. It is interesting, because classical is your most listened to genre, yet it seems we have completely differing preferences withing it as very few of the composers I listen to are in your ratings.
    July 30 10:14 AM
  • GamamJ On Janek Gwizdala, and is too smooth/poppy for me. On another note I checked out Mahavishnu (finally) a while back and they are one of my all-time fav bands with their debut being a 5 for me.
    July 28 10:05 AM
  • GamamJ Okay, playing the first Trio by Tim Miller now, and **** yeah, this falls right into my musical wheelhouse! Wanky, technical and ethereal.
    July 8 08:14 PM
  • GamamJ Niiice! I've already checked Devotion by McLaughlin. Was good, but not really my style. Too soul/bluesy. For reference I adore Allan Holdsworth, just found out about Al Di Meola who's first two efforts are some of the best music I have ever heard.
    June 28 05:50 PM
  • GamamJ Ah, thanks! Had forgotten I even asked, but recs much appreciated! Better late than never, eh? Will let you know what I dig!
    June 28 12:27 PM
  • GamamJ Hey dude, I?m getting into jazz, and you seem to know your stuff. Therefore I am here to ask for advice. Currently listening to Chick Corea?s Now He Sings, Now He Cries, and this is exactly the style I am after. Have only heard Blue Train by Coltrane (my favourite so far), Kind of Blue and Moanin?. So, any tips for what could be considered I guess shreddy and more technical jazz? Guitar-players are a plus.
    June 23 07:58 AM
  • Bedex Will do for sure! :] I am debating whether to take a chronological approach going through a range of key pieces in order, or to go by movement/style, or just going randomly from composer to composer
    June 19 09:11 PM
  • Bedex Thanks man! Much appreciated. In fact I am thinking about making a list series to catch up on my Western classical homework in the coming weeks so your help will definitely come in handy!
    June 18 01:55 PM
  • Zig Always watchful. haha. Hovhaness' And God Created Great Whales was a fantastic discovery, amazing piece.
    June 18 10:19 AM
  • Bedex Thanks dude! I'll check those recordings out - gotta pick a favourite of my own! Bartok is on my list as well, I'm trying to catch up on my "classical" homework :] cheers
    June 17 03:01 PM
  • Bedex hello potatobro, I was looking for good versions of Stravinski's Rite of Spring - is Ozawa's your favourite?
    June 16 09:23 PM
  • Jacquibim no problem! make sure to check 53 tis essential
    May 20 08:40 PM
  • Jacquibim https://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=191861
    May 20 01:22 AM
  • Bedex thanks man :]
    April 27 08:27 PM
  • Bedex heyo potatobro I feel like you might have some good recs for my list here give it a check if you'd like https://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=191623
    April 27 05:36 PM
  • Zig Teizo's first one just blew me away. Strongly influenced by Stravinsky and Ravel.
    April 7 05:47 PM
  • Zig Toru's music is intense. He did the score for Akira Kurosawa's RAN, really love how he constructs a knife cutting atmosphere with a melodic theme. One of my favorite composers.
    April 7 03:22 PM
  • Zig That's fantastic. Love his microtonal quattro pezzi su una nota sola.
    April 7 03:19 PM
  • Zig Also, Scelsi is amazing! ;)
    April 2 01:26 PM
  • Zig Only did Mayuzumi's Nirvana symphony, Matsumura's two symphonies, and Takemitsu's November Steps and Requiem. All of them great. Will check those three composers you mentioned.
    April 2 01:25 PM
  • Zig ma dude, been listening to this Japanese composer Teizo Matsumura. Amazing guy, truly unique music. Think you might be interested. Also do you know Toshiro Mayuzumi or Toru Takemitsu?
    April 1 08:57 PM
  • Jacquibim There's a 3 disc recording of a bunch of his works from a couple years ago that's absolutely worth hearing. It's a little daunting tbh and I haven't even rated it yet, but I saw the Scelsi sound offs and thought it'd be right up your alley https://open.spotify.com/album/4msUxYAKQOCXqiIStbrz5C
    April 1 07:55 AM
  • Jacquibim You heard any Gyorgy Kurtag fren?
    March 31 06:30 AM
  • Bedex fantastic thanks for all the recs! I'll go from knowing zero Guatemalean bands to 5-6 haha. Will def let you know when I check them out!
    March 28 03:29 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts LOL sometimes I have strong feelings
    March 27 09:47 PM
  • Bedex good for you man! Actually do you have any rec for guatemalan music? Any genre/year! Don't think I know a single band from there
    March 27 03:59 PM
  • Bedex oh fantastic man! It's cool to have some variety out of the US/Canada/Europe folk like me. I was in Honduras for a bit a couple years ago so not so far! But yeah I suppose it makes sense there aren't too many orchestras and ensembles playing Steve Reich over there
    March 26 02:35 PM
  • Bedex and where is it you live again? If I may ask!! That sounds sad. But yes I feel quite lucky to have seen it - they also played A Rainbow in Curved Air by Terry Riley that night, terrific piece too
    March 25 11:38 PM
  • Bedex have you ever seen it played live? I highly recommend it, one of my best live experiences for sure (Steve R wasn't actually there I'm not that lucky, but an ensemble played it in Brussels a few years ago)
    March 25 11:13 PM
  • Bedex lovin that Steve Reich soundoff potatobro!
    March 25 05:41 PM
  • parksungjoon na i prefer u tbh
    March 23 03:42 PM
  • parksungjoon ur cool

    February 22 09:07 PM
  • MotokoKusanagi bro saw your bomberman ost rate and had to jam it, brought back so many memories
    February 18 12:52 AM
  • Drifter Yeah and as a final note, for what it's worth, I 4'd it so as to avert from a hype 5 and 4.5 but it's realistically the latter at the moment and probably the former in the future. Great stuff
    February 12 05:09 PM
  • Drifter Well, I still know next to nothing but I'm studying and researching like it's midterms. I found George Jones' Trouble In Mind yesterday and listened three times total. It's only half an hour but the lyrics are highly relatable and emotive and his voice is clear, powerful, and passionate. It's early to say, but he's probably my fav country singer so far.
    February 12 04:23 PM
  • Drifter It's cool bro. It's not serious or anything. Hey, aside from that though, you been getting into any new genres? Currently I'm diving into country from the 50's through 80's and it's amazing! Also, Chicano gangsta rap is my new wave when it comes to g funk. s*** is hardcore bruh
    February 12 03:26 PM
  • Drifter No pressure, cus I know you were going through something last month, but fox and I have caught up with the g funk comp so if you can plow through it that'd be cool!
    February 12 02:28 AM
  • Drifter Yo
    February 11 03:11 PM
  • evilford Hey, sorry, what I said in that gorguts thread came off kinda weird. Basically what I'm saying is I've been going thru my own heartbreak too. It sucks balls. I'm with ya. Just take comfort in your friends and know that s*** can and will get better
    January 14 07:53 AM
  • Drifter Make sure you do both of them though remember
    December 13 05:40 PM
  • Drifter Woah. Cool dude glad you dug. Bloon 2.5d it back in the day :(
    December 13 05:32 PM
  • Drifter All good dudeeeee
    December 12 03:15 PM
  • Bedex you need to hear Mahler's 10th! It is really wonderful. I'm not sure how to rate it though since it is unfinished, but it definitely is gorgeous
    December 11 10:06 PM
  • Drifter Hey uhhhh I hate to uhhhh do this but uhhhhh we're kinda uhhhh waitin on you in the uhhhh g funk off uhhhhhhhhhhh thread
    December 11 08:25 PM
  • Archelirion I heard one of the pre-release tracks and was genuinely impressed, so I'll definitely give it a go. How have you been anyway dude? Been aaaages since we talked last!
    December 4 07:20 PM
  • Archelirion I think your nickname might be the best on this whole site.Keep seeing high ratings for Liturgy - is it better than their previous stuff?
    December 4 12:48 PM
  • Zig Thanks, surely will check that one. That Le Sacre version is super fast, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ah009e4LYs). Still need to listen full Unfinished Masterpiece, but it sounded awesome to me.
    November 23 11:29 AM
  • Bedex Of course, will do!
    November 11 04:16 PM
  • Zig My potato dude, what version of full Miraculous Mandarin you think to be the best one? At the moment, I have Chicago Symphonic with Dorati (a conducter who has the fastest Le Sacre version).
    November 7 04:21 PM
  • Bedex Cheers! I think I'm going to do Ligeti then Xenakis - been meaning to check the latter pretty much since I got on this website so it's been quite a while
    November 7 02:25 PM
  • Bedex I've been through a lot of impressionist stuff already - not all of it, far from it -, I was actually thinking about Ligeti or maybe Schoenberg, I know only a piece or two from each but I love them
    November 4 09:18 PM
  • Bedex Cheers man, I'll get on to it when I can! Thanks for the guidance! I also have to figure out whose catalog I'll explore next - I'm thinking something more experimental. I'll let you know my thoughts
    November 4 07:20 PM
  • Bedex Done with the 6th and 7th! I definitely felt the evilness of the 7th of time but I thought that was gorgeous. My favourites were the first and third movement on the 6th, and the third and fourth on 7th. What's your guidance for the 8th, 9th and 10th?
    November 1 09:41 PM
  • Bedex Yeah, it's in part why I thought of deepening my 'classical' knowledge starting with him. But I'm excited to look into less accessible stuff later on. Your description of his 7th sounds lovely to me - I'll let you know
    October 25 03:39 PM
  • Bedex Thanks a bunch mate! Sounds like I'll be going for Bernstein's take for the 7th as well, as an ambient fan I'm all about textures. Plus the compositions are inherently plenty romantic already, so I don't feel a need to have that reinforced. Will report back after the 6th and 7th
    October 24 05:30 PM
  • Bedex Didn't quite get to jam much Mahler lately (shame), but that's it I finally finished his 4th and 5th. I loved the 5th man, so good. What composers do you rec for the 6th and 7th?
    October 24 04:12 PM
  • Drifter Yeah I'm ready for round 2 just waiting on fox rn. Glad you're doing this with us dude, I miss talking to you (:
    October 16 03:04 AM
  • Drifter He has a fairly short but interesting story you can find in full on genius. It's so unfortunate he took his own life in 07. He was only 31.
    October 16 02:18 AM
  • Drifter Dude. I did not expect it but there's just something about it that I really connect with. He's not like every other gangsta rapper from the bay, he's not just bragging about what he's done or hoe much weight he's sold, he sounds so genuine to me and the lyrics paint a clear picture of his life. The beats are phenomenal and he did them by himself. Idk. I listen to that record and I feel like I'm right there with him in the streets of Antioch just trying to make it through.
    October 16 02:17 AM
  • Drifter Yeah the whole album is amazing though, especially the back half imo. Also just 5d the Woodie ep :0
    October 16 02:06 AM
  • Drifter Yeah it took me getting the cd to fully appreciate it tbh, the difference in quality is there. I listened from like track 9 to the end and then just spun the whole thing over again one day last week which is like 100 minutes of music total. Fantastic album. That groove in One Mo Gin is just so enveloping
    October 15 06:53 PM
  • Drifter I agree on Woodie to an extent but just on his voice sounding young and YES Streets Keep Callin is amazing, one of my favs as well. That and the next two after it are my favs I think. Voodoo is a 4.5 given time, I only recently finally understood it and got into it lol
    October 15 06:12 PM
  • Drifter All good dude!
    October 15 02:42 AM
  • Drifter Hey dude when you're ready send me a write up on woodie and bone in my shoutbox
    October 14 03:13 AM
  • Zig Agree hard, Webern rules. Been listening to his symphony a lot lately. :D
    October 1 06:39 PM
  • TVC15 I'll think about it, but from the couple albums I've heard from them, I'm not the biggest fan
    September 30 05:26 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Pretty much described how I've been in Drifter's shoutbox tbh, been doing pretty good. Looks like you got your hands full too, keep it up.
    September 20 07:39 PM
  • Drifter Dis boi too smart for me
    September 18 08:19 PM
  • Drifter Niceeeeee still don't know the difference between a fretted and non fretted lol. Any new music?
    September 18 04:31 PM
  • Drifter Thanks dude. Didn't you just have your birthday??? Oh fuk did you get anything?
    September 18 02:29 PM
  • Drifter Right now I'm just chillin. I'm selling a cd on discogs for 100 which is awesome and I'm gonna buy some rare stuff with the money and also give my friend some since I never gave him anything for his bday. Tryna just expand my No Limit Records collection as fast as possible lol. Also recently went through all of MJ's singles to find every remix in a convenient way to buy so looking to hopefully get some of those soon.
    September 18 02:25 PM
  • Drifter Well I'm trying to get into music production in college and I'm also very interested in acting cus it's fun and I think I have a knack for it. I need a job to buy more music and also kinda fund my college tuition so I'm kinda trying to do that soon maybe.
    September 18 04:42 AM
  • Drifter Just chillin. Been getting into more house/garage which is cool. Boutta order this for my bday: https://www.discogs.com/sell/item/906512440 Just tryna make the best outta senior year yknow
    September 17 11:12 PM
  • Drifter Fifty ill. What's up dude
    September 14 12:02 AM
  • TheWalkinDude Thanks man, really appreciate that
    August 30 07:05 PM
  • Drifter Vandross. The Velvet Voice. Listen to his debut Never Too Much and or The Night I Fell In Love. You will not be disappointed.
    August 5 04:05 PM
  • Drifter You need Luther
    August 5 07:02 AM
  • Uzumaki Bartok is positively sublime. Lovely recs, and I?ll get to Stravinsky soon.
    July 11 02:41 AM
  • Zig Just checked Jackie McLean's Destination Out!. What a fantastic avant-jazz album. Think you might enjoy it!
    July 10 04:53 PM
  • Bedex I tried to do that but probably should have spent a little more time on it lol. I'll take your word for 4th and 5th. Will keep ya MED
    July 9 10:38 PM
  • Uzumaki I?m familiar with some Bartok and Stravinsky?s ?The Firebird? is lovely. I will definitely check all your recs though. If I may suggest one, check out Aram Khachaturian, specifically his Masquerade suite and his Gayane works. Thanks very much!!!
    July 9 04:56 AM
  • Uzumaki ... just not Anton Schoenberg. Screw that lol.
    July 9 02:30 AM
  • Uzumaki I know I?ve heard some modern compositions back when I played piano on a regular basis, but I?ve fallen off on regularly listening to classical after I got out of high school. Have heard ?4:37? though lol. If you have any particular composers/compositions that tickle your fancy atm shoot them my way and I?d be happy to check them when I have a moment.
    July 9 02:29 AM
  • Bedex So I heard yeah I'm stoked for that! My plan is Horenstein for the 4th and Haitink for the 5th based on rym and other stuff, any thoughts?
    July 8 02:29 PM
  • Bedex Finally got to his 3rd, that first movement is amazing
    July 7 10:19 PM
  • TVC15 no u
    June 27 11:03 PM
  • Bedex True, but it also endlessly frustrates me because I there is no 'true' canon version that I can experience lol, oh well it's not too bad
    June 26 10:29 PM
  • Bedex Ay ay sounds good, man good thing recorded music was invented so that composers/bands can record their preferred version so that we don't have to go through this for everything lol
    June 26 03:20 PM
  • Bedex I'll probably listen to all of them again, there is way too much going on to grasp it fully on first listen so yeah I'll jam his 1st too haha. What version do you rec for the 3rd?
    June 26 03:07 PM
  • Bedex I looved Bernstein's take on the 2nd, makes me want to listen to his version of the 1st. I really dig how grand it sounds
    June 25 10:21 PM
  • Bedex Keep med wow you're right gotta love those sput quirks man haha but yeah I shall
    June 25 02:47 PM
  • Bedex Dude you wrote keep med again lol you truly are a potato
    June 25 05:31 AM
  • Bedex I didn't know RYM splits it by recording, thanks for the tip bcs that's a real pain sometimes! Sometimes I forget there are other sites than sput lol. Cheers dude, I'll keep you med - whatever that means
    June 24 07:36 PM
  • Bedex I am! Given how much I enjoyed his 1st I'm really looking forward to listening to his more highly rated pieces. Thanks for the conductor rec too, it's often hard to figure out which version to listen to
    June 24 03:53 PM
  • Dewinged Yeah man, but I can just see you have the right attitude and that's all you gonna need to get through this chaotic mess we call life ;)
    June 24 05:07 AM
  • Dewinged That's great to hear man At your age I was an insecure mess. You seem to be so aware and centered that makes me wanna go back to slap my young self and sort my s*** out haha.
    June 24 04:39 AM
  • Dewinged Damn dude, you living the life hahaha, jazz, books, a girl, sounds wonderful to me.
    June 24 01:18 AM
  • Jacquibim DM'd
    June 22 08:56 AM
  • Jacquibim We have a little server with only about 30 people, all from sput. It's pretty cosy and it'd be neat to have you in there. If you don't want an invite it's all good
    June 22 07:44 AM
  • Jacquibim I found em on Spotify and I'm already ~somewhat~ familiar with the Tamayo interps but I will give them all a much more thorough listen. You're on Discord btw aren't you?
    June 22 07:36 AM
  • Jacquibim I've dabbled in it and generally enjoyed it more than his electronic works, if you have any recordings you'd personally recommend I'll def check them
    June 22 06:33 AM
  • Dewinged Pft dude, busy as ****, started drumming again with a crazy math punk japanese band (check O'summer Vacation on bandcamp!), trying to get my own band too on guitar and vocals (struglling with an awful drummer lol), work piling up, lol the usual... how bout u man?
    June 21 09:05 AM
  • J() Alexander Fijate que creo que de momento me han gustado mas las grabaciones de Beethoven y Borodin. Al Emerson es al que posiblemente no escuchare de nuevo.
    June 19 12:27 PM
  • J() Alexander El sitio tiene que estar de joda, ni el signo para abir pregunta acepta... Como sea. Tengo 18. Coincidentemente he estado escuchando unas pocas grabaciones de (algunos de) sus cuartetos estas ultimas dos semanas, del Beethoven Quartet, el Fitzwilliam, el Emerson y el Borodin, intentandome decidir por alguno. Probablement me vaya con los primeros.
    June 19 06:35 AM
  • J() Alexander żEstan en elecciones por alla? Bah, en el mundo actual y mas en Latinoamerica me imagino que sera una situacion de elegir al menos peor. Aunque, ża poco tu ya puedes votar?
    June 19 06:14 AM
  • J() Alexander Ah, si, lo soy. Hey. Creo que nunca habia interactuado con nadie de tu pais, en la vida real o en internet. Joder, es un fastidio escribir sin tildes.
    June 19 06:04 AM
  • Drifter Yeah it's pretty good isn't it. Hip hop should be higher though :p
    June 14 06:12 PM
  • DoofDoof I am probably just too much of a pleb to enjoy it
    May 30 07:59 AM
  • Zig De Natura Sonorum is perhaps his most known work, based on Nature sounds. Also, L'oeil Ecoute, inspired by Paul Claudel's texts (I think), is very interesting. His music is somewhere between musique concrete and acousmatic. Think you might enjoy these.

  • Lord(e)Po)))ts I was the potato before you were even born
    May 26 05:12 PM
  • Zig Thanks! Will definitely check those out. :DBtw, have you ever heard anything by Bernard Parmegiani? Like Xenakis, he composed electronic and acousmatic music.
    May 25 07:31 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts excuse me im the local potato here
    May 25 05:41 PM
  • Zig Yeah, I've heard his early works like Metastaseis, and some of his 70's mainly Psappha, which is amazing. But I want to get into his electronic stuff, any recs?
    May 23 10:31 AM
  • J() Alexander Alright, thanks.
    May 21 05:42 PM
  • J() Alexander Hey, good to know you liked her music that much! Personally I've never been too satisfied with the recordings of I've listened to of her music :/, but yeah, I'm glad you enjoyed it that much.
    May 21 05:17 PM
  • Zig Hallo! Webern's string quartet opus 28 is the piece most people start with, also his variations for piano are very good. Man, Alban Berg is definitely worth checking, Edgard Varese too. A few weeks ago I went to a concert and they played Miraculous Mandarin, that piece is surely amazing.
    May 21 09:26 AM
  • J() Alexander No problem.
    May 13 06:22 AM
  • J() Alexander I don't see any Debussy in your ratings, have you not listened to him yet? Like, besides Clair de Lune. Other than the big three it is hard to recommend impressionist music; impressionism (in music) is a mess, I don't even know why the label exists, but other composers that I know that are (apparently) "impressionists" are Isaac Albeniz, Lili Boulanger, Manuel de Falla and... I think that's all I can remember. Unfortunately, I can't recommend any recordings in particular for those three.
    May 13 05:56 AM
  • J() Alexander Nice. Listen to the Kuniko one if you can then.
    May 13 05:31 AM
  • J() Alexander red fish blue fish have a recording with I think all of his percussion music (including works with percussion and one non-percussion instrument like an oboe), if you are going to listen to a recording I'd recommend that one, all of the performances are great. There's also a recording with Pleiades and Rebonds A and B made by Kuniko Kato, and I think I like her versions more than the red fish blue fish (well, Steven Schick) ones, so I recommend that one as well.
    May 13 04:45 AM
  • J() Alexander Have you listened to Xenakis' percussion music?
    May 12 06:53 PM
  • Papa Universe your 2019 album to review is: Marissa Nadler and Stephen Brodsky - Droneflower
    May 10 07:10 PM
  • J() Alexander Hell yeah, it is a 5.0. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
    April 24 02:43 PM
  • SandwichBubble Well if I'm allowed to rec you back, check the composer Luigi Nono (if you haven't already). Other than that, I'm useless when it comes to that classical stuff.
    April 23 04:21 PM
  • SandwichBubble Will do, I'm just not a classically-minded guy so I always put off listening to the other stuff.
    April 23 04:09 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell Haha judging from your pie chart you seemed relatively well-equipped for it ;] Happy scribbling!
    April 22 06:24 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell Heyhey your album to review is Nurse With Wound - Thunder Perfect Mind! Enjoy :]
    April 22 06:17 PM
  • J() Alexander I have listened to a couple symphonies and concertos (including the first concerto grosso), but I haven't listened to any of his string quartets. I'll listen to some of those when I'm done.
    April 22 05:49 AM
  • J() Alexander I have listened to some of his works, but I'll admit I'm not very familiar with him, so I probably should listen to more, some day, I'm a bit busy listening to Bach's cantatas and Xenakis' orchestral music right now.
    April 22 05:41 AM
  • J() Alexander I know Bartok, I just haven't rated any recordings of his work yet (that's the case with a lot of composers); Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta is probably my favorite composition by him.
    April 22 05:18 AM
  • J() Alexander Hi. Please listen to La Legende d'Eer and give it a high rating. Thank you.
    April 22 05:14 AM
  • Drifter The fact that your highest rated G-Funk album is Paris' worst received by the internet makes me so giddy you don't understand. I hate music dweebs that can't realize it's ok to like music.
    March 28 04:45 AM
  • Dewinged No problem man, If you have time / when you have time! I'm glad you liked it, it seems that got a lot of traction here and made it to the trending section!
    March 28 12:02 AM
  • Dewinged Sweet, thanks! Hope you like it!
    March 18 05:54 AM
  • Dewinged Hey man! How's your review schedule. I was talking with Pots about that The Comet is Coming album that came out last friday, have you heard it? I thought it could benefit from your jazz magic powers. I would like to review it but it's a bit too much outside of my element!
    March 18 01:32 AM
  • Drifter It's ok bruh dw about it. I'm really only free on Fridays.
    March 17 03:35 PM
  • Drifter Get on discord bruv I wanna chat wit u
    March 16 01:01 AM
  • Drifter Ok, I will elaborate tonight on discord. Just wanted your attention about it.
    March 8 11:02 PM
  • Drifter Hey can you do me a favor?
    March 8 05:44 AM
  • RadicalEd Camus or bust m/
    February 12 02:39 PM
  • Evok hell yeah bro m/
    January 18 12:12 AM
  • Dewinged Yeah same here, I can't read music but goddamn I can hit those drums! ;)
    January 8 02:39 AM
  • Dewinged That is absolutely true but man, after 20 years banging drums like a troglodyte I just don't have the patience. I tried once tho! After like 12 years or playing I had a teacher for like a year, tried to show me to read, paradiddles, etc. I didn't last long haha. He was a good teacher though, but after 2 or 3 months hitting the snare I was going mental.
    January 7 12:33 AM
  • Dewinged Sorry to hear about your grandma. I was about your age when my grandpa passed away from lung cancer, I remember it was really shocking, the first time I was confronted with something like that but, well, sadly, you get used to the older you get. Music teaching sounds great man! If I could go back in time it would something I would have liked to try. Now I am just a self taught heathen, I could have used your services long time ago haha!
    January 6 01:49 PM
  • Evok Hey man happy new year! Hope things are well in your world! Cheers bro, just doin what I can to share good music made by good people! https://dispatchrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/in-from-the-wild-club-dj-extended-lp-version
    January 6 03:14 AM
  • Dewinged Hey man, happy new year! Thanks for stopping by. It's not a big deal, just the shadows and demons of growing old, being married, daily life. It just comes to haunt you at some point but I think I'm doing good after all. How are things on your end, still busy gigging?
    January 6 12:36 AM
  • Drifter Yeah the only copies released were promos because the label went bankrupt. Here's a link: https://peoplewithoutshoes.bandcamp.com/album/thoughts-of-an-optimist
    November 28 11:42 PM
  • Drifter Yeah I really think you should. One of the few jazzy/boom bap rap albums I really love. His lyrics are great and the whole vibe is chill but dark but fun. I've been jamming it recently because I found out he reissued it for the first time since 95 which means I don't have to dish out $600 on a cd. Got it for $20 and it comes with 2 demos.
    November 28 05:38 AM
  • Drifter Revisit People Without Shoes ****er
    November 25 06:29 PM
  • Drifter Oh ye listened to Sade. Album's a real beaut. Pearls is amazing. I need to listen to it more
    November 13 05:31 AM
  • Drifter Oh ye. Too busy listening to gangsta rap and sad indie tho. Eventually my boi I have not forgotten
    October 23 02:21 PM
  • Drifter I should... I'll try it soon.
    October 1 04:26 AM
  • Drifter Sweet. New set up except Keyblade who hasn't submitted his yet. I'm free to jam something all weekend if you want.
    September 21 02:22 PM
  • Drifter m/m/m/m/m// 4 my homies will blow you away
    September 20 04:59 PM
  • Drifter Just waitin on you for vontel
    September 20 04:39 PM
  • Drifter There's a new set of recs in the comp
    August 26 05:13 PM
  • Drifter Cool. Yeah that album isn't the most accessible. It's a style of g-funk that doesn't have a name but is fairly minimal and uses deep basslines as the main focus of the beat instead of synths or guitars etc. I love it but like I said not the most accessible
    August 14 05:45 PM
  • Drifter Lit
    August 8 04:07 AM
  • Drifter Oh yeah I forgot to tell you. The ratings should be done by .1 so you can give it a 4.1, 4.2, whatever. It's important to the scoring
    August 6 10:52 PM
  • Drifter How tf did you send an anonymous message
    August 6 06:08 PM
  • Drifter Awesome. Superb explanation. Just 2 left. Glad someone's actually doing it
    August 6 06:37 AM
  • Drifter Lets jam something on discord later today. I'm free in probably an hour for all night
    August 3 11:54 PM
  • Drifter https://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=1078406 its up
    August 3 04:15 AM
  • Drifter Alright cool I'll post the list Friday
    August 2 03:55 AM
  • Drifter Do you want to take part in a G-Funk comp? You're a great writer and you do like the style. It'd be like the Emo Crown/Post Punk Off comps from last year and you'll have a week to check 3 albums and submit some sentences explaining what you liked/disliked. It'll be fun c'mon
    August 2 01:46 AM
  • Aiwaz I was thinking about going through the goal posts there at the field. But depth perception is a bitch, I actually might try that tomorrow morning.
    July 1 01:36 AM
  • Aiwaz any ideas? make it better? Maybe some comedy s***? crashing?
    July 1 12:19 AM
  • Aiwaz new video. https://youtu.be/Bz4h3_QF29Y
    June 30 09:15 PM
  • Aiwaz https://youtu.be/dkTI5NkdQTE
    June 30 03:20 AM
  • Drifter Also, if it wasn't clear, you should dl it instead of streaming so you don't get ads. It's pretty immersive
    June 29 03:58 AM
  • Drifter Listen to Snoop's song Serial Killa and/or Dr. Dre's Stranded on Death Row for a quick refresher on him. His nickname is The Narrator for obvious reasons lol. Hope you dig
    June 28 11:53 PM
  • Drifter was almost alternative for the time. The first/last song was a diss track towards death row and is the most commercial sounding song from the album. I really think you'll dig it. It's hard to explain the lyrics because it's not totally gangster but he is talking about murder and things like that. Like I said it's like a movie.
