Actually, fuck it, I like "Tubular Bells" as well.

Can't be anymore embarrasing than admitting to liking Pink Floyd

2112 by Rush, ha ha ha! I used to listen to that when I was about 17 years old. I remember my fellow sixth-former Wingco coining the term "bombasto-sludge" in disbelieving disgust.

William Basinski- Disintegration Loop*

An 8 second phrase repeated on tape loop for 40 minutes and 36 seconds. Doesn't sound much- but it's one of the most beautiful, harrowing and mind-expanding pieces of music I've ever heard.

For the first couple of minutes the phrase is strong enough to hold interest. But then I tend to lose focus, get a bit bored. 3 or 4 minutes later, however, and it's engrossing. Though the phrase never changes (save for the occasional wavering of the tape and the crackling of the disintegration) I always swear I hear a rogue note, a new instrument or a change of tempo. My mind plays tricks with me, new sounds pop out and old ones disappear. Never has Cage's quip that something boring becomes interesting if you try it for long enough been so true.

The phrase itself is mournfully gorgeous- which helps- but it's the way the tape disintegrates as it loops injects it with all kinds of pathos. It's a fairly direct metaphor for distant memories peeling away- an onomatapea for loss and regret.

It changed the way I hear music. It taught me to listen in a different way, greatly enhanced my enjoyment of a lot of music I already loved and has opened the door to a lot of music I'd never previously 'got'.

It is also the best piece of music ever to fall asleep to. Sometimes I put it on repeat all night and drift in and out of sleep with it on. Some of those nights have been the most pleasurable experiences of my life. Being only half-aware of reality and hearing it is a mesmerising experience.

Incredible.

*I'm not actually sure which one it is!

Nah they had to cut that to 19 minutes at the request of the Kop who couldn't refrain from pissing in each others pockets for the full 20.

That sounds interesting, FH. I might try to find it.

Back in the old tape player days, great holiday fun would be had by myself and friends creating a tape loop out of a cannibalised cassette. You can then record bits and pieces onto it, and if the optional covering of the tape erase head is performed, you could get some nice layers happening.

You could also use tape loops to thoroughly piss people off, by leaving one on and going out for a few hours.

Kids nowadays, it's all Sound Forge and Wii.

Godspeed YBE's Providence clocks in at over 29 minutes. I have 24, 28 and 38 minute live versions of the Velvet Underground doing Sister Ray.

I do like The Liars song This Dust Makes That Mud which is a touch over 30 minutes long.
