Playlist for May 14th, 2008

Brian Eno- Music for Ara Pacis, 6 May 2008

Taper's Notes:

Nine years on from their first collaboration (`I Dormienti` in the undercrofts of the London Roundhouse), Brian (music) and Mimmo Paladino (installation, sculptures) have again joined forces for a collaborative project at Rome's Museo dell'Arra Pacis.
It ran from 11th March to 11th May.

Here is an audience recording, ipietri, a bright star in the Eno universe, sound wizzard and a good friend too has managed to visit the very installation and succesfully make a wonderful recording. Quality wise top notch!!!!

He asked me to upload this on his behalf and I feel honored (and happy to regain some of my reputation as some sort of `Eno pope` (or geek or whatsoever ;-)...). Since I didn`t take Eno's advice for slower and better thinking and made a remark at the `Nerve Net Forum` which lost me lots of sympathies there I want to repair some of the bad karma I have earned: People! Buy all of Eno`s records, he is a genius! Buy his books, dvds too and visit his installations, he is a great and gifted artist.

O.K.: here is, what ipietri wrote about the very recording (again thanks and all spots on him!!!!):

``as promised here's my recording inside the Ara Pacis in Rome
I made it yesterday afternoon with Core Sound Binaurals mic + Marantz PMD620 recorder
edited with Steinberg Wavelab and HarBal 2.3
no cuts in the recording, it's a 1 hour visit walking in the
installation... including some (rare) visitor chatting... rare and not
annoying, easily the reference recording from the installation :-))
I suggest you don't play it really works as a background...
it's playing now in my office and nobody is protesting :-)))``
