Title: What are you listening to?
Post by: Alexandre Scriabin on 10 January 2011, 06:47:57
This thread idea has been around for a while on the RP boards, and I thought that everyone on the Dev boards would enjoy the idea too.

The purpose of the thread is merely to list what you're listening to right now, and maybe gab a little about it or about what someone else is listening to.

As for me:

Carlos Seixas, Sonata No. 19 in D minor [Allegro] 2 min 56 s

And as for me:

The soundtrack to the next instalment of the Santhworld Nepris adventure, which is currently being prepared by Artimidor and Grinch - and at lightning speed, too.

Maddy Prior (prob my favorite female artist), "Sing Sing All Earth", from 'Carols for Christmas'

Listen here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CugcfrR83c8 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CugcfrR83c8)

This is (obviously) a Christmas CD; she and Steeleye Span usually do more folk/medieval sort of stuff, with a pop energy, like

The soundtrack of Civilization 5

The sound of the wind, thankfully the sound of rain has stopped for now, and I hopefully will get out for my walk/run this afternoon.

In a bit it'll be Jordan Jansen singing a number of songs :) can't wait for that! :D

We certainly got some variety going already, and I was anticipating anything you might say in this thread, mi'lady Judith.

Edit: By the way, here's some Alyebyev for you (Alyebev was a Russian composer who wrote tones of choral music in the early 1800's).

I like music like Jeff Beal's soundtrack for "Carnivale", which is quite different and unique. See his homepage here (http://www.jeffbeal.com/Pages/FILMS%20Pages/Carnivale.html#), where you can listen to several songs online. Among his greatest are (see the mentioned page) Episode 12 End Titles (The Day that was the Day), Dora Mae's Funeral, Justin with Elanor. See also the convoy music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgCMC-DMsNQ&NR=1), but there's also related stuff they've put in the series that matches the mood Beal conveys so brilliantly, as you see in the After the Ball (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzackGmUrIc&feature=related) clip. I just love the way they embedded the "fantasy/metaphysical" setting in reality and the music helps to make that happen.


Title: Re: What are you listening to?
Post by: Bard Judith on 10 January 2011, 22:35:22
This IS a fascinating thread, particularly with the samples.  I'll have to bookmark that Carnivale music page, Art!  And thank you for letting me discover Alyabyev...an aura just for that, Andre!

Right this moment, I'm listening to Hurt Me by Australian band, The Jezabels. Everyone should have their music. It is truly beautiful (especially Hurt Me, Dark Storm, and Unmarked Helicopters).

Today, however, I listened to the news, my Prime Minister (god damn, I hate that woman) talking about how terrible the floods in Brisbane and the fires in Perth are, but not really DOING much, my Premier (I hate that woman too) talking about what we're actually DOING, the rain outside, and some Radiohead/Ra Ra Riot.

Today was a good day for sound.

Future World Music - Anyone else know this collection of absolutely fantastic music? They're mostly orchestral, no lyrics, and if you pay close attention you'll recognise their music in a whole load of trailers. I just find it relaxing and something inspiring to have running in the background. Link (http://futureworldmusic.com/)

I'm on an Alkan kick today:

That's just one of my play lists on him. Currently, I'm listening to Alkan's Impromtu on Luther's 'Un fort rempart est notre Dieu' Op.69 :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40TJyRsQYTY

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UN0OHpwCGGo

So far, I've checked out the stuff by Jonael and Arti, and I'm still digesting it but it's worth listening to definitely.

Jonael, get over, you get a big hug from me! For now I have a birthday present for my husband! :)

Alexandre, for a seond or though I thought I could touch my piano again after several years....

Karesh - do you recommend this film?


Well, I'm listening currently a Christmas present: Tarja Turunen: What lies beneath
link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_1PqsvcWhw)

A totally different music enchanted me currently, but I did not find the original on you tube, but somebody else played the piece. It is horrible, but shows a bit of this new kind of flute music. All other CDs of this master of the flute are kind of nice, but boring.

My favourite CD of him is:

Hans -Jürgen Hufeisen: Die neue Flöte

And here is the horrible video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OQ30_MoCfs

And that's the boring one, but a nice landscape!

Boring? I love Vivaldi's Largo :P

I would recommend the original score though, with a string ensemble. I have to admit I was not impressed with the reduction/modernisation. The Baroque character, which made the piece so charming imo, is completely gone.

I cannot recall the full numbering off the top of my head, but I think the piece is the Largo from Antonia Vivaldi's Concerto for Flute, Strings and (Basso continuo?) in C Major

How sad it is that people like you and I, who strive for more of an HIP interpretation, have to be seen as elitists.

You know, it was said once that Vivaldi could write a concerto faster than you could play one. I can well imagine that a good portion of the people who have heard Vivaldi haven't heard anything else than his concertos.

But, his sacred works are definitely worth mentioning. Here, have a look at my play list of him:

http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=CB568F8288741873

If you go down until you see it says "Vivaldi Magnificat" then you reached the sacred works.

Oh, you two elitist jerks!

I did not say, that I don't like Vivaldi (or dislike his Largo) , I said, that the flute in this piece is boring compared to the pieces in "Die neue Flöte".

Actually, the CD I listend to most frequently in the last two years or so, to the dismay of my family, is Cecilia Bartoli's Vivaldi Album. See, I know more than the 'Le quattro stagioni)'  :buck:

Hmmm? I was actually referring to the stereotype of the classical music connoisseur who prefers HIP performances. It didn't have anything to do with you, my dear.

Ecstasy. Not sure if it can be called a drug or not, because of how it's affecting me :P

Mstislav Rostropovich plays the Gavotte and Gigue from Bach's Cello Suite No. 6 in D major, BWV 1012. Filmed at the Basilique Sainte Madeleine, Vézelay, Yvonne, France in 1991.

I'm listening to Cziffra play Liszt's Valse Impromptu.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRD5RralCgA

It's a pretty famous recording, and a widely recognized composer and piece, so it shouldn't be huge news to anyone into Romantic piano music.

Don't know why aadoth is looking for NecroMage in this particular thread, but I give you some of my favourite music instead.

Rebekah del Rio - Llorando (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkkK8Ouvul8&feature=related) (Scene from one of the greatest movies of all times, "Mulholland Drive" by David Lynch).

Ah yes, and there's that sentence I always wanted to say: Remember, it's all recorded! :D

Arti, that's my favourite moment from Mulhulland Drive, and one of my favourite scenes from all of cinema. I remember the first time I saw and heard this. Half-way through the song, I was close to tears myself. The shock that followed was almost humiliating. Clever chap, that Lynch guy.

And thanks for the John Denver track, Kalina. Calypso is one of those songs that I know by ear and like, but never knew the name of until today.


Title: Re: What are you listening to?
Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 29 May 2011, 06:33:39
Oh, don't know, that film, seems I should go and watch it?

So much to Calypso...  :evil:

Art's piece let me think at one of my favourite singers, Mercedes Sosa. Unfortunately you tube won't show me a good version of Toda Cambio (look for it) , but that one  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyOJ-A5iv5I&feature=related) is nice also.

You may like this one also.

Spanish and French definitely are great languages to convey strong emotions, agree with that! :)

Great to hear that you're with me on "Mulholland Drive", Shab! That one blew me really away - just great how well Lynch has put it all together! And there are very few movies that manage to do that. Another great example of a similarly fantastically constructed film is e.g. the classic "Don't Look Now" with Donald Sutherland (Roeg, 1973), where a director manages to really hit you hard that it hurts... No CGI monsters required for that ;)

@Talia: If you like movies where the film only really begins after the film has ended, "Mulholland Drive" is a masterpiece in this respect... Though it's a Lynch film, so be prepared for everything - I guess that one will stay in the mind ;)

On a lighter note, some 60s stuff from "Mulholland Drive" if you feel like dancing:

I've Told Every Little Star (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqVWVJ67LSA)
16 Reasons (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71a4muF6Ak4)

P.S. This is the girl! :)

Mullhullond Drive ... I believe I enjoyed it ... that was the one people said was confusing because there was no apparent storyline, I think, but that didn't particularly concern me.

I've been listening to the soundtrack from the 'My Musical' episode of Scrubs ... love the songs on that one ... especially their send ups of various musicals/musical songs through the episode.

Any show/musical that can dedicate a song to poo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kb2fdHbGo7k) is amazing in my humble opinion. :D

A little thread necro since I decided to poke around these parts for a little while, and I'd like to hear some more music from you guys.

Right now, I'm listening to Pollini play Debussy's L'isle Joyeuse. Pollini reminds me of myself, because he can't help but hum and breathe excitedly while he plays it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlGFfjY_vrY


Title: Re: What are you listening to?
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 14 October 2011, 04:07:27
Can't say that I can get much out of Debussy, but as you asked - here's some very different music for a change...

I've noticed that the synthesizer kid Jean-Michel Jarre by now is 63 (!) - how time flies... So here are two of his not so well-known pieces, which I personally think are among his best:

Fishing Junks At Sunset (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RHkYGcu4fg)
September (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chY6L9ByHBU) (just love that one because of that smashing voice at the end : ) )
and if you like it classical:
Jarre does Vivaldi (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDd2Ong5l0U&feature=related)

The two characters are pretty vivid in it. Truly a musical journey. Well, I had posted this over on the rp board and I thought I'd give it a whirl over here again. Your references have been fun and it's been a while, so why not a little thread necro?
