I'm nitpickerish enough to point out that this did not exactly answer my question.

Are you saying that only musicians who use acoustic instruments are creative and that those who use electronics are not?  Creativity is a cerebral activity - the use of imagination and ideas to create something - it is not identified or defined by the physical skills or tools one uses to express it. "Creativity" does not mean "technical prowess" or "hard labor".

 
Nicely put.  
thank you RP. You still manage to feed me new fresh music
A segue into Londonbeat "I've been thinking about you" would work.  Shi pow pow.

                               An ELECTRIC guitar yes, to a degree.
                               Certainly not an accoustic.
                               -
                               In this piece, without the violin - there is zero creativity.

Nice, although a bit "Cirque Du Soleil" perhaps.

If you like this, check out "Steep In The Safe Cliffs", by the same band.

 

Just an fyi, Emancipator is a person, aka Doug Appling, not a band. 


Beautiful {#Meditate}

Wonderful track.. thanks for playing it.. commercial radio wouldn't.

What the hell!!!?? These prices seems to be for a Rolling Stones lost bootleg CD, not for a simple musician, really beautiful, but simple.

 
I spoke too soon.  They are available for much less directly from the performer's web-site.  US$ 10 for an mp3, FLAC or other download.

Interesting.  RP plays Emancipator a lot (5 plays in the past month for Minor Cause alone), and I mean a lot but is not positioned to benefit from CD sales.

I hiked around Los Torres del Paine in southern summer of 1978 by myself.  Took just shy of 5 days.  

I got off the trail, i.e., lost for about an hour on the second day but eventually found my way back.  In those days, maybe a couple of dozen hikers completed the full route per year.  Nasty military dictatorships were in power in both Chile and Argentina at the time.  

The snow-capped peaks and glaciers that calve off into the lakes are stunningly beautiful.  I would highly recommend it to anybody who likes to backpack.   

In those days, I went for a long walkabout as the Aussie aboriginals like to say.   My grandmother dropped me off at the American/Montana border and I hitched to Tierra del Fuego.

These days it is called 'exotic adventure travel' and there are likely a lot more people doing it.   Still worthwhile though.
 Sounds most excellent Mr. Westslope wrote:

It sure was. What an experience. Played some Emancipator through my headphones eating lunch over Glacier Grey {#Music}
First time hearing this....really enjoyable!
Going to see him next month - what are his concerts like?

Couldn't agree more. Going on a 13-day hike through the mountains of southern Patagonia in a couple of months, and have all of his albums downloaded and ready to be looped when I'm at the top of the bottom of the world.

I like the way RP sprinkles intrumentals through out the sets

Fifteen minutes ago I sent my daughter the reminder request to see if she will join me in his upcoming concert at the Boulder Theatre.  Now here he is.  Two notes in to the piece and I'm "AH there is Emancipator!"  Thanks for making my moment Bill and Rebecca.
Amazing song.

This is such an RP song.  I like it.
Gliding along on a Sunday night, lasagna inn the oven, cool breeze coming through the open windows, little dog at my feet. Music for a Florida evening.
Listened to this song for the first time just now.  Brilliant.
Thumbs up!!!

I came to Emancipator through RP a while ago and I love their sound. Thanks, RP!
New for me too, though I've heard other stuff from them. well worth checking out.
Didn't recognize this song.  That's because it hasn't been played on RP before.  I'm first to comment.  Giving it a 7 on first listen.
