    Robert Fripp Soundscapes in New York City - Audio and Interview Clips

    E-mail Print


    Best known as the founder and leader of King Crimson, Robert Fripp developed a tape-looping technique eventually dubbed “Frippertronics,” which he used when he worked with Brian Eno in the mid 1970’s. Frippertronics has become Soundscapes, where he creates loops in real time, creating multiple layers, and then improvises solos on top of all of it. The Fernandes Sustainer plays a key part in this, as it provides orchestrated string-like sustain which with Robert's effect units creates astonishing textures. Sustainer can also be heard in his soloing, extending single notes and chords. Fripp set up in the secular cathedral of the World Financial Center for a two-day residency in early December of 2010 and part of a live performance recorded on December 4, along with John Schaefer’s interview, is can be heard at the WNYC New Sounds site.

    Mas Misein

    Swiss industrial black metallers SAMAEL have set "Lux Mundi" (which translates as "Light of the World") as title of their forthcoming album, due in the spring via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD, which took almost three years to be completed, was recorded this past summer after the band spent a few days in pre-production in Germany with with longtime collaborator Waldemar Sorychta (MOONSPELL, LACUNA COIL, TIAMAT, GRIP INC.). The actual recordings took place in two different locations in Switzerland and the mix was handled by extreme metal specialist Russ Russell in Kettering, England. "Lux Mundi" will consist of 10 to 12 new songs, including first single "Antigod" and live monster "Soul Invictus" (roughly translates in English as Invincible Soul), which is a word play with the Sol Invictus used by the Romans. The song was played during the latest European tour and it soon turned out to be one of the highlights of the set, becoming a crowd anthem on the spot.
