A Winner Writes...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Apr 15, 2012

Rick Mascarini was the winner of our recent Pat Mastelotto Recidivate competition and here he is with his prize...

Rick writes "I arrived home yesterday (Friday 13th of April) from another long business excursion to find my "prize" having arrived while I was on the road. The picture was taken w/ my now trusty iPad 2 along with the P@ music playing from the same said device.  Wonderful that I can travel and have these gems playing on headphones while sitting in airplanes. Thanks again for the contests and I'm very proud to be a lucky winner!"

Toronto Reviewed
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Nov 21, 2015
Here's a review of the November 19th show in Toronto.

And some commentary on the above review from Robert.

..."well-executed and intricately composed music needs more than technical mastery to make it sing."

agreed. it needs both players and audients coming together with goodwill, present in the moment, that they might welcome in and become parents to the Music. otherwise, the notes remain not much more than DNA. my views on this night's performance are already available for those with any interest.

"A tour based on a "best of" album, in this case King Crimson's Elements, can be a pretty safe bet, musically and in performance."

firstly, this is not a tour based on any album.
secondly, safe bet? not on Planet Crimson! playing this music in this KC is like walking through a minefield with friends.

For those that have already purchased all three previously available shows (Pershore, St.Paul’s and Salisbury) and want to buy the bundle you will be able to nominate a free download of your choice.

Colin Coates wrote in 2006 that he was looking forward to be able to download the performance he attended at Norwich cathedral. Well, nine years later, Colin, here it is!

A Message From Toronto
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Nov 20, 2015
This just in from Robert in Toronto.

The band went onstage at 20.15 in good spirits. Mel played beautifully over the Eb major / Cm Soundscape. Into Larks’ I and onwards.
My experience was of pouring wine into a cup with a hole in it. Once upon a time, I would have attributed this feeling-experience to the presence of bootlegging. Several times the thought flew by: you only need one prick in a balloon.
The energy of a performance contains and embraces those within it, performers and audients. When the energy encircles and holds the event, the performance develops intensity, shifts gear, and becomes a qualitatively different undertaking: it takes off and flies away into a different world. When we are carried with it, sometimes a performance can be transformational: even, redirect the course of lives. A requirement of players and listeners is to remain engaged and present, hopefully with goodwill, to the extent that all can bring to bear. Tonight, strangely, nothing took off IMO; a first for this KC.
Persistent camera persons persisted, despite rounds of applause for the Revised Photo Policy announcement before the show, continuing into the encores.

The Guitarist Stage Left also persisted. Until finally, having been slapped around the face and stabbed in the heart too many times (this is how I experience violation in performance), it was not possible to honourably continue. Robert left the stage, followed shortly by the other Crims. The show finished, a result of ongoing photographic abuse.
The revised KC photo policy is a fair and reasonable way of engaging with those who hand over their hard-earned pay and feel the need to take a picture of the band. To photograph outside those parameters is at least rude, and discourteous to other audients and the players. At a certain point, given the intentionality that gives rise to an act, proscribed acts become aggressive; even close to an expression of ill will. This is what I felt tonight.

The Crimson Merchandise Emporium
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Nov 19, 2015
The King Crimson merch stall is well known as a point of congregation for earnest men with glasses and facial hair.

Increasingly however, this  phrase is happily being displaced by the appearance of what can only be described as women joining the line at merch stall.

Adrian, the merch manager, wishes it to be known that The Crimson Merchandise Emporium has a range of 4 skinny fit shirts especially for them.
