Heres a little description of who aphex twin are,Richard David James (born 18 August 1971), known by his stage name Aphex Twin, is an Irish-born English electronic musician and composer. He is known for his influential and idiosyncratic work in electronic music styles such as IDM and acid techno in the 1990s. Below are screenshots of the albums.
Boards Of Canada.
This section only has one album in at the present, first lets have a little description of who boards of canada are, Boards of Canada are a Scottish electronic music duo consisting of brothers Michael Sandison and Marcus Eoin. Below is a screen shot of the album, Geoaddi, in this section.
At present there are two albums in this section Insides and Blue album. Below is screen shots of whats in these albums but first adescription of the band. Orbital are an English electronic dance music duo from Sevenoaks, Kent, consisting of brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll.
Their career initially ran from 1989 until 2004, but in 2009 they announced that they would be reforming and headlining The Big Chill. In addition to a number of other live shows in 2009. The band’s name was taken from Greater London’s orbital motorway, the M25. Which was central to the early rave scene and party network in the South East during the early days of acid house.
In addition, the cover art on three of their albums features stylised atomic orbitals. Orbital were both critically and commercially successful, and known particularly for their element of live improvisation during shows. A rarity among techno acts. They were initially influenced by early electro and punk rock.
As you can see there are 6 different albums in this section and below will follow some screenshots of these albums but first a little description on Marillion. Marillion are a British rock band, formed in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England, in 1979. They emerged from the post-punk music scene in Britain and existed as a bridge between the styles of punk rock and classic progressive rock becoming the most commercially successful neo-progressive rock band of the 1980s.
This is the biggest section in the music section, I’m pretty sure most of you know who pink floyd are but if not here’s a little description of the band.
Pink Floyd were an English rock band formed in London. They achieved international acclaim with their progressive and psychedelic music. Distinguished by their use of philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, extended compositions and elaborate live shows, they are one of the most commercially successful and influential groups in the history of popular music.
Pink Floyd were founded in 1965 by students Syd Barrett on guitar and lead vocals, Nick Mason on drums, Roger Waters on bass and vocals, and Richard Wright on keyboards and vocals. They gained popularity performing in London’s underground music scene during the late 1960s, and under Barrett’s leadership released two charting singles and a successful debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967).
As you can see from the screenshots there is plenty to go through, with some great songs included.
There are only 2 albums in this section, In Absenta and DeadWing. Heres a little description of the band. Followed by screenshots of the albums included in this section.
Porcupine Tree were an English rock band formed by musician Steven Wilson in 1987. The band began essentially as a solo project for Wilson, who created all of the band’s music. However, by 1993, Wilson desired to work in a band environment, and so brought on frequent collaborators Richard Barbieri on keyboards, Colin Edwin on bass and Chris Maitland on drums as permanent band members. With Wilson still in charge of guitar and lead vocals, this would remain the lineup until 2001, when the band recruited Gavin Harrison to replace Maitland on drums.
Porcupine Tree’s early sound evoked a style of psychedelic rock comparable to that of progressive rock band Pink Floyd. Upon signing with Kscope record label in the late 1990s, the band approached a more mainstream alternative rock sound. By the early 2000s, the band signed to a major record label and shifted their sound again, this time in a more progressive metal direction.
The doors are my favorite band in this section. At present there are only 2 albums n this section but i’m sure there will be more in the future. Here’s a little description of the band followed by a few screenshots.
The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger, and drummer John Densmore. The band got its name, at Morrison’s suggestion from the title of Aldous Huxley’s book The Doors of Perception. Which itself was a reference to a quote made by William Blake, “If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.”
They were unique and among the most controversial and influential rock acts of the 1960s, mostly because of Morrison’s lyrics and charismatic but unpredictable stage persona. After Morrison’s death in 1971 at age 27, the remaining members continued as a trio until disbanding in 1973
