    Goodbye New York and Hello Boston - Day 17

    Captains log 4/11/05

    Today I was in a New York state of mind. I started the day going to Carnegie Hall and meeting with the booking manager. Carnegie Hall is one of my favorite concert halls and I am looking forward to doing an upcoming sample project there.

    I then met with Ravi Dattatreya, president of Jasmine Music which produces Onyx Style Enhancer.We then met at a coffee shop with Stuart Koll Morgan, composer and GPO user.

    Then off to a recording session with Andy Brick at Reed Robin's studio near Union Square. Andy was recording woodwinds and brass and also preparing a surprise. After the session we went to Wendy Carlos' apartment and visited for a few hours. It was so good to see Wendy again. What a brilliant mind who understands music and technology (did you know Wendy helped program some of the GPO update?) Wendy is about the release a new album of her film scores which sounds fascinating.

    Then it was off to Penn Station to catch a train to Boston (wonder who won the Yankees/Red Sox season opener?) I am writing this post on the express train to Boston. Nice comfortable train ride after a hectic day.
    The clattering rhythm of the train tracks has a somnabulistic efect.
    Very (yawn) slleeppyyyy...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Thanks for the update, Captain! I look forward to the "surprise" . . . I still don't know how you can go on so busy . . .

    There are layers of brilliance and elegance in Wendy Carlos' work - both the technical and the creative side of things. It's wonderful that some of the GPO updates came from her, but not a huge surprise - as Personal Orchestra has its own aspects of brilliance and elegance as well! Glad you're on your way back from a long journey out - with a surpise in tow, to boot. Cool...

    Did you grab an IR while you were there?

    Did ya bring your mobile sample recorder for the tack noise? If you listen even closer you'll hear another strange voice type sound coming from the engine. "I think I can I think I can I know I can I know I can that's not my can that's not my can ...
    Have a nice ride and visit in Bostonia.

    Now you are in my part of the world. If I had time I’d try to come down to meet you. I hope you can grab some impulses of Symphony Hall.


    After reading your post I just put on Switched on Bach (I have a couple other Wendy Carlos CDs, but not at work). Electronically produced music has certainly come a long way. With all the slick, realist sound samples the original Moog stuff has a kind of, well Baroque, feel to it.
