"The artist hires a producer, the producer hires an engineer, and they all work together to make something fantastic which will resonate in the now, and let the chips fall where they may. It's all art, and everything is connected."

Gimmie enough knobbies und slidumz and I'll make Berlioz sound like Slayer.

Is it art?

I dunno.

Don't give a rats-ass either.

It's grown men changing air pressure level.

Close enough for the midgets I'm slam-dancing with.

SM,

this could be considered a major imposition on Berlioz, but so could pulling a rabbit out of your ass, very often..... {ouch}...... to make something or somebody sound great, and make them feel like it was their idea.Cool

The art of stroking a music artist does not come easy. It goes beyond the sliders and Putons. But like a puton, sometimes you have to stroke a certain way to get the desired result that will satisfy you and the "artist".

Stroking great performances out of musos has more to do with phenomenal insight than art. Our late brother Loudist was a master at finding the right buttons to push for that, but it does fall under the art of producing.

I think there's a defined line when the engineer (craft) step out from behind the board and injects his first comment into the proceedings (producing, art).

But to stay on topic, the biggest difference between 'Major' and 'minor' trolling is that minor trolls will frequently quote someone's comment and add a huzzah just to see his name on the page. Minor trolls also lack any kind of creativity in coming up with insults and in doing so often find themselves a target, a pitiful arse-up gutter gobbler with ten gallons of sand pounded up their ass.

That' is your assumption. Personally, I think you're a dick. But you might say I'm psychofantically regurgitating what most of the other posters think of you by now.

So how about YOU leave her out of this. Bob is a friend, he's moderating in the same forum as I am. Don't you think he would have pmed me if he had a problem with me ?

You see, I even can learn something from you. This day is starting great for me.

Mine is 18,5 cm / 7. But it's not the size that matters. Oh, you were talking about my work ?

Sorry, you will have to put your boots on and go to the MARSH swamp. Then you can hear one of my mix. It's in the Nexus, under the CAPE contest. I did the mix, moog synth and bass for team Chardonay. It was fun, and it is free for everyone to listen. As for my professional work, well, they are under copyright control, sorry. Although if you clic the link in my sig, you can find some of the work I have done with my wife as composer, musician and arranger (the latest work she has done).

As for your tango. I won't comment on this.

The bottom line is, don't feel sorry for me for the people I have worked with.
I'm fine thank you. I only asked you about your work because you seemed so disrespectful about mine.

What is ironic is your total lack of humor.

Did you try to quantize those guitars or something ?
Prolly not the appropriate term for a tango, but it definitely lacks "swing".

No match for the Mouse, I'm afraid.
Carry on.

In Europe there is a distinction between light-music and serious-music.

classical music would be considered serious as well as any kind of music tied to the world of fine arts (and establishment).

This is largely a form of class-distinction utilized by journalists and the political class to keep the  working classes and the upper classes separate.

I used to listen to classical music when I was a toddler and I remember seeing the Serge G.-type Italian artists (which are common both in France and in Italy) on B/W TV.

I remember distinctly associating a sensation of repulsion at that music even though I was in my pre-school years.

Later on I have come to realize that the music was not intrinsicly beautiful, but tied to a political movement (euro-communist) and largely based on clever lyrics.

the truth of the matter is that anyone can appreciate a melody, be it Mozart or Rachmaninoff or the Beatles or 'Killing me softly'. The 'complicated' part is the arrangement, which is only there to support the melody and does not need to be 'understood'.

I remember in the eighties there was an LP record that put famous classical melodies to a 4/4 beat in america and it was quite successful.

so you don't have to be cultured to appreciate music..

either you like it or you don't.

depending on your cultural backround you will gravitate towards one form of music or another, but there are as many types of music as there are cultures (and in the end, individuals).

You need to consider that historically, it has been the object of large corporations to homogenize cultural barriers in an effort to have predictable markets, so it's a bit of an uphill battle trying to get people to understand that music is tied to their community or a to an independent scene.

To this day, when registering your tunes for copyright in some european countries they fall under either serious music (classical) or light music.
It has always amused me to no end that Mozart's "Eine Kleine Nachtmuzik" falls under "serious", and that Sepultura, Motorhead, and all the scandinavian devilworshipping metallers fall under "light". We could argue about the artistic value of the respective contenders, but how interesting is that ? I guess we have always been suckers for labels. Like "alternative" which has never been so close to meaning "mainstream".

Old habits don't die fast.
