Homo Erraticus?

Recommended Posts

I took the gamble, and it paid off. Excellent, so far. If you like flute and Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), you will probably appreciate it.


Looks like the real thing, too:

I love this... (from a 1993 interview but I've heard it elsewhere too)


Are you still developing musically?

Absolutely. I learned four months ago from my 14-year-old daughter that I've played the flute wrong all these years, that I was using entirely incorrect fingering. So I got someone to fax me a fingering chart when I was doing promotion in India, and after much debate I decided to relearn the flute, and I really had to persevere. I still play quite a few wrong notes each night, but I'll be all right in a few more weeks.





...in my opinion / experience...

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.

I liked it, but it sure is a different type of music than the old stuff. :) It is far calmer and simpler (?) than say, Stormwatch. I rather liked it, while Karen was kind of left cold about it. Except for _Pax Britannia_, which we both thought was pretty darn good. A lot like _The Secret Language of Birds_ to me.


I think it is worth the purchase, but it may disappoint hardcode Jethro Tull fans.



Anyone who considers protocol unimportant has never dealt with a cat DAC.
