We have been lucky this year to get new sub forums such as the Gear talk and soft synths sub forums. I was wondering perhaps next year if Andre and Frederick might consider a music/what are you listening to type forum it seems for a while these were being posted in the off topic Forum which to be honest to me is kind of a crazy place I try to avoid I've posted recently in the working in the industry sub forum boards but that's perhaps not the most appropriate Place either anyway I was hoping they might consider this idea and just wanted to throw it out there for feedback or comments. Thank you

I don't even own a DAW, I'm just a troll.
Mahler revelation: I woke up at 4 am and, instead of doing my usual composing, arranging, and studies, took the time to really listen to this symphony (headphones on, lying comfortably in a pitch black room).

A brief sidetrack: Mahler for me was mostly the 1st, 5th, 6th, and 9th symphonies. But with an early Xmas gift of the complete Bernstein conducted symphonies, I became determined to get as much as I could out of each one. And voila! My endeavor has already provided great fruit, I developed a new and profound appreciation for the 2nd, "Resurrection Symphony" first, and today I was in tears finishing up the final movement of this, the glorious 3rd!

Mahler was heavily influenced by Wagner, and it shows in his maddeningly idiosyncratic placement of resolutions. He was a genius at knowing how to place a resolution at the most spine chillingly effective time; he could make you go on the edge of your seat waiting for the drop. But whenever it came, it was an epiphany. What a Master.

Nothing says the holidays like the smell of old tubes an organ grease.
