Robert Fripp’s Soundscapes, Live 2010, Part 2

« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, May 07, 2012

For this second installation of Robert Fripp's Soundscapes as part of New Sounds Live, we present performances that were recorded on the evenings of both Dec. 3 and Dec. 4, 2010.  These performances might possibly have been the last major public outings for the English guitarist, composer, and founder of the prog-rock band, King Crimson.

DGMlive's Eric Anderson described:  "once RF had completed acknowledging the audience, he stood at the center of the stage, cupped his hands beneath his heart, and threw them into the air with a leap. It felt like a gesture of thanks and completion, joyfully delivered."

Lovely, poignant, yearning, and truly soulful music on offer here. Those who know Mr. Fripp only as de facto leader of King Crimson should treat themselves to not only these gentle recordings, but to the more harrowing but equally rewarding works such as "Radiophonics" and "Gates of Paradise." Thank you WNYC, and thank you Mr. Fripp!

Um...where's the player? Can't see it here...
Is anyone else having this problem?

a bit of stuff, through my mind:

Forgive me, please, when I lose my mind;
Eyes wander, always on the Prize.
Forgive me, when I appear distant,
in my own mind.
I'm around, 'round
