I always enjoy a good DVD of electronic music, as they are few and far between. This one seems interesting. I guess I will buy it eventually.

Anyone others who will buy this?

No.

I was at the concert and didn't like the music.

Why didn't you like it? Isn't is melodic stuff like Detachment Of Worldly Affairs for instance?

I didn't like it because the music is way to simple for my liking. I just can't stand the 3 note and overly sweet "piano" melodies of John Kerr. It's something someone with just a few piano lessons would play.
Mind you, I liked - and actually still like - Offshore Islands and the early John Kerr albums.

Ditto for me....... the sweet piano melodies really unclassify the electronic music edge and more into the realms of new age, i dont mind piano but just the right amount, not too much.

One reviewer once called it "tea-room music" in an issue of KLEM blad.

Still love the early stuff by John Kerr up to "Citadel". Very creative, and "Reflections" is brilliant.

In early 1990 John told me that he had decided to quit making music for good becuase he couldn't see any point in carrying on. A couple of months later, "Offshore Islands" came out. This paved the way for some not-so-nice albums, and I for one could never warm up to that overly sweetish quality.

Sometimes it's better to quit when you're at the peak of your creativity.

Reading the comments, I have a feeling I may actually like this.

Or, in some cases, even earlier than that.

I finally bought the DVD. I actually agree about the sweet piano stuff by Kerr, not my kind of thing. The first 4 tracks are not too good, but from track 5 on it's all good tracks, minus track 10 which is Kerr again.

The track by young Jeffrey Haster is really enjoyable, the Wavestar track "Time Node" is a very nice 80s TD thing, and the powerful "And The Room Was Filled With A Deafening Silence" may be the best track on the disc, really intense and on-fire.

So all in all a good DVD. I missed some close-ups of the artists though, it's all filmed from a bit of a distance. And it would have been cool with some behind the scenes interviews too.
