Hello to all journal readers,

Haven't been much on Da over the last 4 weeks, due to a failing computer (CPU went to 100% and stayed there) , this combined with long working hours (weeks) , i only had some time this last week to llok at the computer.

In the end i formatted the hard drive and reinstalled  windows 7 and all the other required programs.

So finally it is working again since a few days.

I have a back lock of about 300 message's to attend too, and on top of that my favorite  Tube amplifier died in one channel due to high voltage short circuit.

So i am bussy to find out  what i need for type (rating) resistors and capacitors to reconstruct the burnt out part (since there are no schematics), and also need a new matching output transformer and some new tubes.

For me this amplifier is a life supporting unit , since i hardly look whats on the television, i fill the evenings with listening to music !

I have as backup, a Harman Kardon, a NAD and a DUAL amplifier but they cannot ne compared with the sweet detailed soundstage a Classe "A" tube amplifier can deliver.

So lots of work and little time, hoop before next weekend to have answered the messages , and will have time to publish a new journal with features.

 till next weekend, len.
Castlefest 2014 49 ROSA CRVX by pagan-live-style
Castlefest 2014 49 ROSA CRVX

Castlefest is an annual medieval / pagan /  wiccan festival around the sabbat of lughnasadh (lamas) held in the first weekend of August, near the village of Lisse in the Netherlands.

ROSA CRVX create a martial and apocalyptic atmosphere with their music and aim directly at the heart of elements.

Obsessively, yet never brutally, they explore elementary questions about life and death, confront us with primal fears of humanity.

Facing darkness and abyss they are looking for new ways to explore foreign territories which will only open to the light when we start to acknowledge that the only solution means accepting mysteries.

That’s how ROSA CRVX manage to reach the depths of human soul with their alien yet familiar sounds. They use harmonies of ancient music, ecclesiastic rites plus Gothic Rock elements, drum samples of military music and passages of Ambient- and Industrial-music and combine them to an organic whole which has become a sole monument of French art in the last 20 years.

The resulting sound conjures lunacy and power -unleashing in the synthesis of arts. Acoustic instruments and electronic sounds melt with self-made instruments, march rhythms, cold piano strikes, huge chimes, atmospheric guitars, alien plainchants and a passionate vocalist carry us along into a frightening yet inspiring roller coaster of emotions and thoughts.

Rosa+Crvx plays on the Friday of Castlefest.

Personal Quote:

"The outcome of the Photograph depends largely, on the chosen subject and how it was taken, the camera itself is just a medium to register your idea's about the subject"
