To these ears

I thoroughly enjoy reading and downloading content from Continuo's weblog, which (upon stumbling onto this particular patch of cyberspace a couple years ago) has proven to be an invaluable resource for discovering artists that I had previously never heard of. Today's acquisitions (made possible by an extremely slow and solitary day at work): Raymond Murray Schafer, Transcription (1973); Musiques Nouvelles, Sons En Mutation (2003); and Akio Suzuki, Soundsphere (1990).


Syracuse University's Concert Choir. Conducted by Lillian Choi.


Live with guitarist John Russell at Fete Quaqua in London, 15 August 2010.

Who's this David Toop guy? Mr. Horn was talking about him this week, too.

He was one of the artists that participated on the Musiques Nouvelles album I downloaded. Other than that, your guess is as good as mine. Maybe, just maybe, there's some way we could harness the power of this "internet" and utilize it to our advantage in discovering more information about him. Nah, sounds too ludicrous. Making stuff up about him would be easier and more fun, albeit more libelous...

Thanks to The Grubbermeister for the kind words.
For an introduction to David Toop's wonderful sound world, try his toy music duo General Strike, and his self-build instruments manifesto with Max Eastley titled New and Rediscovered Musical Instruments.
