Yeah,I remember seeing a photo with the "Splendid China Miniature Scenic Spot" caption in the SKIRTaction myspace but it's as gone as the music now!What happened to both?
This is a great "collection" and is currently the 2nd most played channel on touchedRADIO (FieryPlanetEyes is still played more than any other channel even after being online for about 6 months!)Sit down while I tell you a story, we'll call it The Gospel According To Cinder.When this piece was being prepared for touchedRADIO cinder wanted a minute or twos silence between The Anarchists Window and Cloud Symphony Number 3. There was much stamping of feet in the engine room, and it was pointed out that silence used up bandwidth and would people listen to silence as happily on the internet as they would on their hifi. The thought was that valuable bandwidth would be used unnecessariy and anyway people would browse away and not wait for the 'hidden' track.After weeks of logical but fruitless argument the engine room caved in but came up with a great idea, all songs play at 128 kbits/s but the silence could be recorded at 8 kbits/s and thus it would use very little bandwidth.cinder responded, "forget it, I'm not willing to compromise on the quality.""It's fucking silence cinder, silence has no quality." then suddenly the penny dropped and the engine room realised, why it was the engine room, not the artist.
Bloody typical,huh?Brilliant!Silence as colour.Silence is music too.Once more,thanks for sharing.

Reminds of a Mark Strand piece that Laika used for there final? album:In a fieldI am the absenceof field.This isalways the case.Wherever I am I am what is missing.When I walkI part the airand alwaysthe air moves into fill the spaceswhere my body's been.We all have reasonsfor moving.I moveto keep things whole.
Beautiful words,they make a lot of sense.
yes a beautiful poem.haven't heard the album though.had a conversation with paul m about lou from laika the other day.lou lived at #8 ashwin street when most of us lived at either #6 or #2.what a musical street that was.on the brink of a new cindytalk,aiming to play live,i wish we had ashwin street to rehearse and experiment in now.the luxury...
