I wish I wouldn't have read the liner notes to Quatermass. Now whenever I hear "Water Music" I only feel stunned admiration that those are BALOONS. Hopefully this phase will pass with time.

I've got one of those "Aerial" albums - don't know which one - I must admit it didn't impress me much, bit bland I thought

scott's thread revival got me searching, and sure enough
not that great a cartoon, but the stretch of sfx at 4:30, definitely him

Great thread... I should pick up those Aerial volumes before they disappear.

milton, thank you so much for the tom & jerry 'toons. i am a huge old school 'toon shorts fan. i love t&j, and i never knew dockstader did some of the sfx.i need a good T&J dvd collection. the looney toons golden collections are some of the best stuff i've ever bought. the stuff just make me grin from ear to ear.

A big piece I wrote on Tod Dockstader (includes a rare interview with the man himself)

the man. great work.
that forthcoming documentary you linked to is fairly intense; the preview suggests that it is much more a documentary about living with alzheimers than anything else; Todd listening to a recent work of his that he has already completely forgotten. but reading the director's notes about 'late period works', it seems like the focus will be on how underneath the symptoms this isn't just your typical patient. plus: two unreleased post-Aerial works in the trailer alone, with apparently quite a lot more to come

this new collection of his 1979 library music is one of the coolest reissues of the year:
some of it is "hauntological" in the boards of canada sense -- i feel like that's a red herring tho. there's not much here that screams 1979 except for the technology. most of it feels like '60s synthpop records by mort garson or dick hyman, with the breeziness but without the middlebrow kitsch.

Yeah amazing. Wish the samples worked for me.

the last track, "soft aurora," is an early favorite. breathable/unhurried spaghetti sci-fi.
