Note to all members
We are currently preparing to change the setup of this forum to focus more on imaginative & creative gnosticism, because we feel we should distance ourselves from the way is increasingly aligning itself with conspiracy thinking.
We respect Miguel's choice of course, but that does not mean that we agree with it. We feel that conspiracy thinking is contrary to gnosis. It's simply not where we want to go.

If anyone is interested to continue a forum affiliated to I am willing to help. Maybe you could start using the relevant part of this forum as a basis. Please contact me (Lúthien) if you are interested.

We've not yet fully decided on how to proceed; but I think that we should in any case cut the link with (including the page there that links to the forum). We will also re-structure the forum, and put the old Ilsaluntë Valion board that focuses on Tolkienian gnosis up front again.
I will update this message as soon as there is something new to say.

and now for something completely different

This is quite unrelated, but I want to test Soundcloud embedding. Also, I was trying to analyse a tune and recreate it in Logic Pro: in English it's known as the "Beer Barrel Polka", but this version is from a German vocal trio, a bit similar to the Comedian Harmonists.
It's basically an exercise in orchestration ... I do like how the whole thing comes together.

It's also humbling realising how complex pre-rock age popular music actually was. I've got nothing against rock music - I love it; but I can't help getting the feeling that things have been, let's say, much been simplified since that became mainstream popular music after the jazz & big band age - something in the order of how a Rembrandt painting compares to those comic books they sell in the supermarkt checkout line :)

PS the last minute's not done yet, so that's intentional. The mix and balance isn't ready, either.
A! Elin velui, dîn dolog, aduial lúthad!
