i don't care if it's just a hi-hat keeping quarter notes for 35 minutes, i want everything synclavier. it's my favorite music in the whole world. and of the so called 500 compositions he did on it, more could be released.

I must admit I think the time is now right for a little more Synclavier stuff.

You should also check out the 'Resolver + Brutality' tape - sort of the missing link between Jazz From Hell and Civilization Phaze III.

It can be found at:

It's a mystery why more synclavier has not been released as it was apparently not tied up with the Ryko deal. My guess is that the ZFT thinks it sounds outdated and not befitting the image they wish to project of the American Composer.

I doubt if the ZFT thinks it sounds outdated, but I do wonder if they assess the potential popularity of synclavier music to be zip. I think our best chance of hearing compositions we've never heard before is with the synclavier pieces. I'd LOVE getting my hands on this stuff!

I strongly believe they have their anxieties because it's so easy to screw up while tryin' to figure out what is what: a working version or a finished composition (or simply Frank fooling around with some brand new East-Asian percussion patch)

Didja know that Jon Appleton was involved in the creation of the first Synclavier? http://emfinstitute.emf.org/exhibits/synclavier.html

I love his work w/ Don Cherry

Yea, I can get behind that. I was just hoping Gail would come out and yell at me, prove I'm wrong. Hopefully the Ascolta recording with the 2 'new' pieces will see the light of day one day soon (along with the orig. synclavier masters).

Wouldn't mind if the ZFT came up with a CD project that combines Synclavier pieces with unreleased guitar tracks, works out fine, structurally, IMO

Indeed, an Ascolta ensemble recording on ZAPPA (T) would be fine

Yes, release it all in one bundle! For the people that like that Synclavier stuff.

I wonder if Frank has done a back up of all his Synclavier stuff, did he put all on some cds? Like i know him i am sure he did. So this is possible to hear it one day. I hope to not wait in 2026 for the 40th anniversary of Jazz from hell project object.
