The point of these threads is to encourage exploration, by listening to and discussing albums we've not heard before. Typically, this is done by making a chart of albums, then listening to and discussing one album from the chart each day. Expand your horizons!

>make charts

>listen to tunes alone

>listenalong schedules, OP pics, etc.

Omar Khorshid - Guitar El Chark (Guitar of the Orient) (2010)
>arabic bellydance music

Even if every Sublime Frequencies release might not really appeal to me, every single thing I've heard by them has been, at the very least, incredibly interesting to listen to. It's so cool to dive into a style I'm entirely unfamiliar with, and Sublime Frequencies does a great job at digging up musicians and genres I've never heard before, and bellydancing music is certainly one of them. Khorshid is a phenomenal guitar player that takes a lot of influence from the tremolo picking of surf rock, but his music combined that guitar style with arabic rhythms and some absolutely fantastic synth work that sounds a lot like an omnichord. It wears thin over 90 minutes because most of this sounds pretty similar, but it's engaging and fun all the way through.


Claude Larson - Digital Landscape (1983)
>library music, progressive electronic

If nothing else, this is an absolutely fantastic proto-vaporwave record. Seriously, if someone told me this was released in 2014 and it was called "Atariゲーム機" by Dream Scape or whatever the hell, I would totally believe them. It's got a really cool sound and a really cool AESTHETIC, but the compositions are almost entirely lacking in depth.

Ken McIntyre - Looking Ahead (1960)
>post-bop, hard bop

McIntyre wears his admiration for Dolphy on his sleeve, so the two work incredibly well together. Their interplay is easily the best thing about this record, Dolphy is obviously an incredible soloist and McIntyre is equally as competent. McIntyre's compositions are a bit lacking, but they're still totally serviceable post-bop compositions made all the better by some fantastic solos.


Ween - Shinola: Vol. 1 (2005)
>alternative rock, art rock

This is a compilation of Ween's various odds and ends, and it definitely shows. It starts off pretty poorly with some of Ween's less memorable comedic tunes, but it picks up steam really quickly with the fantastic, Thin Lizzy-aping "Gabrielle", and it stays mostly consistently good from there.

>“An OPTRON is an instrument that outputs both sound and light from a fluorescent light at the same time... I pick up the noise from an electrical discharge that happens when a normal household fluorescent light gets turned on and off and output the noise. With an effect pedal for guitar, I can create many variations of sounds."

that ALL sound design questions and clyps must be directly related to RUBBER
Hey fuck you nigger this isn't Gaia Online so I can't edit my shit whenever I feel like it
nigga you CAN edit your posts whenever you want on gaia
timing sounds alright but maybe change up the drum samples used? add a little reverb or delay to one of the more subtle elements to fill things up?

what sound were you looking to replicate? if you just want to make music like that in general i would youtube tutorials on making industrial and related stuff.

what is rubber?

why does your guitar sound like an electric piano setting
the joke is he doesn't play guitar, he plays tuxguitar
oh well i don't know what that is
Well my composition process is usually kinda split halfway between actually playing and just inputting notes in tuxguitar, so I guess that's kinda true.
But yeah, it's just a default soundbank playing midi. Can't record right now.
I borrowed one of my buddy's mini Taylor's and I had an absolute blast with it

Give me Avant Garde jazz recs
Bonus points if it’s big band or uses an unconventional jazz lineup
My fav avant garde guy is Kaoru Abe. I love listening to solo Instrumental shit, especially sax but Abe's guitar playing is hella over looked too. Anyone know of more solo sax shit? I already know Anthony Braxton and Charles Gayle.
Also I'm the dopehead jazz blogposter, I was sober for like 3 days, now I just picked up a new bag and I'm gonna party. might drive around and listen to music instead of going to the NA meeting, or I might leave the meeting early. Yeah, probably just leave early, show up and drink some coffee, they usually got some yummy baked good too. Heck I might stay the whole meeting idk. I still wanna get clean, think I'm gonna do it the week of christmas when Im off work.
and once again it's up to ol mister dope head to baby sit the jazz threads and keep this shit alive. Hope it doesnt die when I have to go to NA from 730 to 9
How do you have this much time to just bump jazz threads and talk about your heroin addiction on /mu/? Not that I’m complaining, but do you have a job? Do you sleep?
I have a part time job in the mornings on weekdays but I get home early in the afternoon. I live at home. I often stay up till 4 or 5 AM when I'm using to get more jazz time in

I know that everyone who listens to noise rock likes to shit on You Won't Get What You Want, and that's fine, I get it, but instead of aimless bitching, this here's a thread where you post better noise rock albums.

My girlfriend's.

She's insanely devoted to him. How bad? In her religion, Bruce Springsteen is the force around which everything else revolves around.

Just when that starts to really annoy me, I remind myself that her SECOND greatest love is The Beatles.
They called him that because he would split the cash between the band after a gig
