I hope you will indulge me while my BIAB projects remain somehow stuck in the kitchen on the stove cooking.

https://soundcloud.com/lawrence-olivier/black-elks-vision


This is another Korg X3 MIDI composition from the late nineties - early 'oughts.


After listing to "Departure" by seeker, I hope to learn how to utilize BIAB for these types of compositions in the near future.

Very cool instrumental Lawrence!! Although I do love hearing you sing. This is very well put together. Wonderful motion in the music! Take care. Greg

A good listen, Lawrence.

Nicely put together. Good mix.

A lot happening along the way. Good textures.

I do miss your vocals, though.

Wow Lawrence,

Shades of Jean Michel Jarre there, beautiful, hypnotic, I enjoyed it from the first note till the last.

Hi Lawrence,

although I miss your vocals, too, I really enjoyed this one. Especially like the drums and bass. Great soundscape.

Indulge you??? no, I just can't frame any comment on your wonderful music as an indulgence!

At a time when I was still cursing the general state of computer based recording and accomplishing very little in any direction, you were already making rich and complex arrangements like this one!

Considering the tools you had to work with, and the fact that you had to do all this with little or no computer help, I have to compare your ability to conceive all the intertwined parts to the ability of the classical composers to imagine all the parts in their compositions.

As I listen to this and hear how the various passages segue from one to another, I am very impressed. It takes a special awareness to hear something like this in one's mind before it actually exists... and then conjure the dream into reality.

Interesting to hear something that is so different from the very organic music you tend to make these days... but one core thing has remained constant, and that is your amazing ability to take what's in your head and capture it as a song. That's nothing short of a gift!

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
