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

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

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=heCWKiII29A&feature=related  "Misty Moisty Morning", or

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfyJI5HkRsE&feature=related "Hard Times of Old England"

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, 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, 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 clip. I just love the way they embedded the "fantasy/metaphysical" setting in reality and the music helps to make that happen.

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

I'm on an Alkan kick today:

http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=EF6BB732BFADE86A

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

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

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
