This was one of the first full introductions to experimental music I had, and will always be one of my favorite albums Brian Eno put together(outside of My Life in the Bush of Ghosts with David Byrne). Various Artists - No New York
55 MILLION CRYSTALS by Brian Eno. It is a synthesis of ambient music, light, hand-painted picture components, and state-of-the-art computer technology that merge into a grandiose object that changes with barely perceptible transitions and produces a meditative effect.
And if you think it is a digital picture, it is just a photo I took this morning.
Domingo 16 de Junio, la programación de hoy en rotación desde la madrugada, con «Quiet IV» de la artista alemana Sonae; dos horas de Ventana al Exterior con piezas de paisaje sonoro y música concreta de Atilio Doreste, Carlos Suárez y Darius Ciuta; y uno de los álbumes del legendario sello Obscure Records de Brian Eno, el disco es «New and rediscovered musical instruments» (1975) de David Toop y Max Eastley, una obra experimental y sutilezas, el resultado de juntar a un compositor y locutor y un escultor kinético, creador de instrumentos inusuales. Y casi al final de la emisión del día, a las 23h, celebraremos la luna llena con el programa del mismo nombre, ésta vez dedicado al «Reino de Thánatos», lecturas de poemas y escritos sobre la muerte, y músicas funerarias de Oriente y Occidente.
TeslaFM.net hace cada día un viaje a la música arriesgada, de escucha profunda, para oyentes exigentes y despiertxs, conéctate!

DAVID BOWIE - "Low", January 1977.
It's a strange but beautiful situation when you get up early and listen to this heavy, cold and dark record while the dawn breaks in and the first rays of the sunlight shines through the window - even if the moment has a beautiful and positive mood, it makes some songs of this outstanding record even darker and sadder...! Apparently Bowie was into Kraut Rock and Kraftwerk when he wrote the songs for "Low" during 1976 - the album sounds very different to "Station to station" which was more into Disco or Soulmusic.
"Low" was the first of three albums recorded in Berlin, Germany. The city had a huge impact on Bowie and changed his unique songwriting style nearly completely.
Interessting fact is that there is a big difference between the A- and the B-Side of the record. Side 1 is a bit more positive with more lyrical works while the Side 2 is just a heavy piece of mostly instrumental darksounds, started with the very sad and cold "Warszawa". It sounds desperate and isolated.
The kind of lightful and beautiful "Sound and vision" (great bassline here!!) sounds like an alien between all those cold isolated songs like the delightful "Always crashing in the same car" (which is simply a masterpiece with that strange guitar-lick).
"Be my wife" is another diamond, lots of guitars which is not that typical for Bowie. Love it!
To me "Low" is my favourite Bowie-Record. Maybe because it interacts perfect musically and takes the listener on a journey to very different places of his own moods...! Dear friends, have a blessed Sunday! 🙏🍀
