    @Waidmann mmm I've liked it, I will listen to it, I've seen on spotify they have lots of albums. Do you think I should begin with one in particular?


    Well I haven't used all of it in the Quiche, so yes there's more. :P

      Are you talking about Boards of Canada? Because I don't know any records of them actually.

      Didn't understand you quiche-remark at first XD.

        No, I was talking about Buckethead's music. I listened to Boards of Canada last year and they're not my kind of music (http://affenknecht.com/forum/showthr...ll=1#post21491)

          relaxing? =o. maybe one of those i posted
          and i think its more old-age than most of the things... im pretty sure they only or mostly use very old analog devices, thats why a lot of songs have kindof a killed, dead and old sound. even though that might not be what you meant...

          and they do have some surprises. like if you read that thing i posted which is about An eagle in your mind.
          i think their songs are really thought-out, i might even assume that they calculate the notes and other things mathematically, and they even have a track called Music is math.
          they often have a lot of variations too, even though they might appear repetitive.
          these are mostly underneath, o r how to say, things though, like, in skyliner i didnt even notice for a while how strings come in towards the end.
          not too prominent things. like, here is a cover of EYDIAB: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mjPcJYx0uI
          there ARE some things to play in it =o (i think they didnt play the strings at the start of the part after intro, and other things towards the end)

          uuh anywais... their songs are different. not every of them are repetitive or somethings. beware the friendly stranger doesnt even have the same pattern two times, and jacquard causeway is even more varied.. but crappy sounding.
          so yeps, i think the focus isnt on sounding good or varied, but sounding how it should sound to.. convey a meaning, or how to say.
          like.. t o create a base, for some thoughts, or whatevers. like an art that looks crappy but makes you think somewhat.g
          uuh well i dont even know why im defending them, or whatever im doing, when i dont really like them, or their stuffs either

          its late so byes =o yep i listened to your thingy. dont know what to write about it, kindof good i guess.. i mean, uh.. yeps so i kindof like it
          and there are a lot of instrumental which are some of the best things i know...
          like, most game musics are instrumentals too, and a lot are better than something musicians would create to sell individually

            But thx for sharing anyways. It's through threads like these I discover things I'll afterwards find hard to miss in my life .
            The Buckethead track you linked to here is actually quite good, I'll listen to some more later. Now I'm off to the office

                ^Yea, I've got 300 students starting tomorrow, and only got the last of the course-material Friday. It has to be edited and on-line when the students start. But it's mostly done now, and I'm home now and can do the rest from here. It should be no more than an hour's work. Semester-start is always a hassle, but I can take time of at another time, my job is flexible that way, as long as it gets done and deadlines are kept. But now, I'll have a coffee and a little nap

                    @Maya: Buckethead is actually a solo artist, not really a band. But to be honest, I don't know any albums of the guy, just some songs. I knew Buckethead as a former member of Guns N' Roses and through that I learned some songs of him, just like this one.

                    @You: Well, several songs work relaxing, I guess. Several others indeed really don't. And I get how the music can be moving, but not for me, which might say more about me than the music. The things they evoke don't apeal to me, I reckon.
                    And the new-age remark wasn't about the intruments. It was more about the spiritual, alternative dimension, with symbolism and evokations, suggestions of underlying themes. Those things rarely work on me, I'm afraid. But it's good it means something to you.
                    Variation might be there, but not in the way I would like it. Sorry for that . It's a whole subgenre that's lost to me anyways.

                      I have been listening to Buckethead all the morning, I just played the most popular, thanks for sharing.

                      And while I was listening to it, suddenly something really familiar:
