I was sitting here trolling through some classical pieces – mostly Rossini for something to start the new album with and then it hit me, William Tell Overture part 1 Prelude Dawn, talk about gob-smacked. I’ve heard it a million times before and just took it as a nice peaceful piece of music but as I’m listening to it, the next door neighbour who has only lived there a few days came home from work and was greeted by his daughter (probably around 3yrs old I’ve no idea) with a hearty ‘Daddy Daddy I love you.’
Now you’re probably sitting there thinking so what, well I’ll tell why what (huh?) he is profoundly deaf and for me to hear his daughter over the top of ‘Prelude Dawn’ gave to me a new vision of that 2 minutes 45 seconds (give or take) of music. Instead of a peaceful morning dream sequence, the way I’ve always seen/heard it, it became a subtle audio visual feast and for that one simple fact, that being I can hear I can honestly say ‘Thank God’ – if I couldn’t hear music I think I’d go spare.
Anyway the youtube video attached to this is Rossini’s William Tell Overture, Prelude Dawn is obviously the beginning to approx 2:45/50, enjoy.
After spending months deciding on which synth I should buy, going from the Little Phatty S2 through numerous other brands, I always seemed to end up back staring at the LPS2 so I bought one – got a great deal from Turramurra Music here in Sydney and couldn’t be happier. Well I could IF YOU MADE THE EDITOR/LIBRARIAN FREE!!! It’s like selling a car then telling the buyer that they need the software installed in it to make the electric windows, stereo, air conditioner work and that’s gunna cost ya.
My $1,300 may be a drop in a bucket to a lotta people but seeing as I bought a BRAND NEW ONE how about cutting people a break and giving the software away for free to NEW LPS2 owners.
Finally got the Moog Little Phatty Stage II, so this pic shows all the toys except the Korg T2EX and the Behringer UMX61 isn’t fully in picture.
From left to right, Strat Relic Repro, Tobacco Sunburst Tele, ’61 Re-Issue SG, the rebuilt 2002 Squier Strat with HH’s, Moog Little Phatty Stage II, Korg T2EX with the Behringer UMX61 above it.
