Radiophonics is more harsh on the ears.

That country wouldn't also happen to be planning to release a mini-LP version of November Suite, would they?

Hear! Hear!

BTW, nisimoto, what does 'obi' mean, and what is the purpose of the obi strip? Is it some kind of certificate of authenticity? Everyone makes a fuss over them, and although I agree they are attractive, they seem sort of superfluous--kind of like a necktie. Unless there is something about them I don't know (which is very likely).
Walking out's just another metaphor.

Obi-strips are endowed with magical powers that grant the owner temporary invisibilty...or something.

So I guess no one here knows what the difference between radiophonics, soundscape, and platforms are?.

I'd really like to know what the technical differences are and I thought you guys knew it all. :evil:

The question still doesn't make any sense here. Radiophonics is one particular album, soundscape is a general term for music produced in a certain way, and I still have no idea what you mean by 'platform.'
The sound of one hand clapping is the same as the sound of a tree falling when no one's around to hear it.

Gee, I wasn't sure this was a serious question. They're all soundscapes, the generic term Fripp has been using since he started giving solo performances using digital delay instead of the tape delay of the old Frippertronics system. "Radiophonics" is a descriptive title for the performances on that CD. I suppose it's meant to be evocative, but I don't know how exactly...maybe the kind of abrupt changes you get if you flip through radio stations randomly? "Platform" was used on some November Suite titles. I think the meaning of that is more literal: the performance took place in a decommissioned railway station, in the area that had been a platform where trains arrived and departed.

Yeah it's just the name of an album, but I suppose there is a grain of truth in the supposition that it represents a distinct variety of Soundscapes. Presumably Fripp picked up the name from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, which used "musique concrète and tape manipulation techniques...to create soundscapes suitable for the growing range of unconventional programming." Fripp's Radiophonics album contains some of his most radical use of processing/effects, and so it seems an appropriate name.

"Platforms" 1-8 along with "Polychromatic Park" and "Technicolour Park" make up the "Green Park Suite".

The album "November Suite" comprises the pieces "Green Park Suite" and "November Suite" albeit that they are interspersed amongst each other.

The music was recorded at Green Park Station, Bath in November 1996, hence the titles.

This is one of my favourite Soundscape albums, being very cohesive. The music was substantially edited after the event, but its one of those albums I never tire of.
