> > ProjecKt 2 w/Fripp, Belew and Gunn was pretty awesome friday night! Well...looks like I missed meeting Miko and Laurie at P2 concert in SC. Alas! A belated howdy to you!!! Is anyone else disturbed by Fripp's use of cheesy guitar synth sounds? I mean, if *insert studdly keyboardist name here* played the same piano, organ, and marimba sounds that Fripp used people would say "That sounds sucks!" And it does!!! What is so fascinating about a guitarist playing crappy keyboard sounds on a guitar? Okay....obviously this is a personal pet peeve. I just don't get it. Although it was gratifying hearing the much loved Fripp fuzz tone, I left wondering how they could do this gig night after night. With 3 extremely talented and gifted musicians on stage I excepted more than just hallow wanking. I kept waiting for the next level. Perhaps I'm too much of an idealist. People on ET have been raving about "the new vocabulary" P2 is exploring. I heard nothing new. I heard drum sounds straight from ToaPP (Three of a Perfect Pair's "Industry"), soundscaping from Fripp's many recent solo discs, and Gunn's noodling ala his solo discs.... Geezzz....what's my problem????? I think in my own looping I've been searching and struggling for form and structure in my looping compositions. I'm tired of improvised guitar-drones that go nowhere, are lifeless and dead, and brandish the "Recorded live with no overdubs/Completely improvised" tag. BOOORRRRING. I was hoping for enlightenment from the masters. Some clue as to the road less traveled. Matt P.S. That being say, the P2 song directly after the intermission was *very* cool, erie, and sublime. How in the heck was Gunn triggering those vocal samples? IMO, this song hinted at what this group of musicians are capable of.
