This is one entralling book! Elliott really knows the in and outs of the sampling game and the entire book keeps your interest. You learn earn a lot about sampling by reading this book and be entertained at the same time. Some important and interesting details about sampling that are spot on. There are also moments that just make your sides split. Well-written, humorous, informative, intriguing. I really enjoyed it!
"The Samplist" will be shown at the NAMM show in January.
Just wanted say that if anyone is interested, The Samplist got a pretty good review in this month's issue (June) of the BBC Music Magazine.
It's also had some good coverage in the Times Literary Supplement, The Arts Show on BBC, Scotland on Sunday newspaper, The Scotsman, The Guardian, Muso Magazine and the British Science Fiction Association's Magazine 'Vector'. (The guy at Classic fm Mag trashed it because the narrator made a corny joke about Stockhausen so you can't please everyone, I suppose; although you'd think that anyone who enjoys Stockhausen is liable to have some kind of long, sharp, stiff object jammed up the place where they usually stick their heads.)
Thanks to all who bought it and a special thanks to Pat and Aaron and Greg and Thomas and many others who helped out.
The novel is currently under consideration by a few film companies. (Fingers crossed)
By the way, I used to come here as Z6. Hi to Papa and Hans and Dan and King and everyone I always had a great time with here.
Sorry to see that Nick isn't here anymore though.
The Samplist is available in all UK stores and at 30% discount on Amazon (UK) and it's better than a punch in the mouth.
Those demos are perfect! Got to get the book. Great job of infiltration - er, research, Z6. You came into our midst, overheard our conversations, broke virtual bread with us, were invited into our family, and then, what did you do?
Betray our secrets to the muggles!
Absolute best of luck with this project, Francis; hope to see your name on the silver screen (or at least the home theater DVD.)
------- It's all about the music - really. I keep telling myself that...
