I'm presently listening to "The Essential Fripp And Eno" (aka "Frippanino"),
Robert Fripp and Brian Eno, Caroline Records (Virgin), which is very soundscapish,
soothing, medicated, and FoRK-recommended.

Another gem is Zappa's Civilization Phaze III, which is the source material? for
many of the little noise bites in Lumpy Gravy, and others. "I hear you've been
having trouble with pigs and ponies."

I'll look for them, thanks.

I like most everything Adam does, too. And classical, some neoclassical (Berg,
Cudahy, et amis), mongolian throatsinging, and blues. But, oddly, not most jazz.
