Bidulistas …

So last night we sat and listened as Gordon Macmillan, known as “Tange” at Stillstream.com, hosted his weekly show “Mysterious Semblance” on Stillstream. This was a bit of a special performance as Gordie had given me a heads-up that he would be attempting to do a 4-hour long live performance utilizing Plogue’s Bidule.

The performance was simply stellar! Long, slowly-evolving sweeps and washes of sound that started in one place and clearly took us to new ones … ambient music in the strictest send of what Eno suggested.

Gordie sent me the bidule he used and it is something to behold, from a visual standpoint! Of course, before I can use it, I’ll need to substitute the various PC-specific modules he used (most notably, AngstroLooper and the Nanotron ones) with Mac equivalents wherever possible. Guess that’s what I’ll be doing for the next two weeks because on Friday, 25 May, I’ll be hosting “Mysterious Semblance” for him, while he does another gig! YIKES! I’ll be posting more details between now and then as I put the show together …

More of Gordie’s music can be found on the Internet Archive: “Complex Silence 7” for example …
