radio i

by Tim P Scott

WHAT WERE YOU DOING IN 1998? Well, Tim P. Scott was stuck away in a dank room obsessively constructing a collection of weird but strangely familiar electro-acoustic instrumental pieces (with the odd occasional strange spoken interlude mixed in).
Genre: Rock: Instrumental Rock

Album Notes
[*Although downloaded music is convenient and quick, there are still people who enjoy actually handling CDs and records. All tim p scott CDs from CDBaby are guaranteed to be real replicated CDs, in jewel cases with extensive artwork and liner notes: these are not homemade CD-Rs.*]

But most of them are of course available from major digital distributors such as iTunes and Rhapsody.

*** Functional and Driving Music Volume 3 ***

The tim p scott CDs are all specifically designed to make your driving time go by more quickly, and allow you to arrive at your destination relaxed and energized.

More than one person has also pointed out that this is great music to have playing when they have to do chores, housework or work in their garage and yard.

Here's the link to this album on iTunes

The 2 minute samples here at this cdbaby are cool to get a taste, but they hardly do justice to the complexity and intricacy of the pieces in full. For some full length WMA and MP3 downloads of miscellaneous material from past and future releases check out the Crow Caw Music Works website:

Although I encourage you to browse around and check out my work, please keep in mind that the pieces really do sound better off the CD. The quality of the various mp3s and wmas range from OK to awful. And I'm not just saying this to get you to buy the CDs! I really will honor my satisfaction guarantee.

We certainly don't want to discourage anyone from buying tracks from this or any tim p scott records on iTunes, napster and other digital distribution services, really, the CD package itself is its own artifact, and something that a download or digital copy just can't replace.

Thanks to the iPod and the instant availability of millions of tracks at the click of a mouse, music is often just a disposable background noise. In the Old Days, a record was something to keep, remember and return to consciously.

Also, even though CDBaby lovingly encodes the samples with the best music codecs known to mankind, the full glory and depth of the pieces are best appreciated by playing them from the original CD itself. So order today! Your complete satisfaction is guaranteed.
radio i (playing time 65:02) is the third installment in Tim P Scott's "uneasy listening" music series. The first CD, Jack of Shadows, is also available on CDbaby, but the second, "The Circle of Art" is a rare collectable. "Uneasy listening" in the sense that it's the polar opposite of "easy listening", which was a term that used to describe radio stations which played only the most inoffensive and unchallenging commercial music possible.

Basically, "radio i" is a possibly narcissistic or self-indulgent exercise in which Scott decided to write a series of instrumental compositions that he would have liked to hear on an ideal radio station, if such a thing existed.

Although Scott's style is hard to pin down, it is influenced in greater or less degree by the following bands and artists, among others:

Procol Harum / UFO / Strawbs / Roxy Music / Tangerine Dream / Jo Jo Gunne / Warning (the 80s German one) / Ozric Tentacles / Blue Oyster Cult / White Zombie / Rare Bird / Captain Beyond / Black Sabbath / Philip Glass / Tool / Wishbone Ash / Camel / Love / Spirit / Clear Light (the 70s L.A. one) / Manfred Mann / Megadeth / Duncan Browne / David Sylvian / Bill Nelson / Talk Talk / and too many more to remember at the moment...

Browse the samples and also check out the fourth release "glossolalia" and first release "Jack of Shadows" also available on CD Baby, and the Crow Caw Music Works web site at http://www.crow-caw.com

Although there are entire songs here and there you can download, radio i is really an entire concept piece, and
is better when you listen to it in its entirety rather than try to hear short excerpts. Of course there is a money back guarantee so that if you don't love it your money will be cheerfully refunded.

The real CD also comes with a bonus tabloid style poster which contains descriptions of the songs and lengthy rants about a number of things...you can't get that from a download!

When contacted for further comments, Scott contributed the following:

"I just though of a few more influences...from back to the 70s and before: Icehouse, Metallica, Rush, King Crimson, ELP, Jan Hammer, Russ Ballard, Big Country (and into the 90s!), Brand X, Sandy Bull, The Fixx, Dixie Dregs, Golden Earring, High Tide, If, Jade Warrior... well, that takes me up through the "J"s...

"The theory is that if you like them, you might be more likely to like my compositions...the theory of transitivity of affinity and all that.

"If someone asked me: "what is the CD or record you have played MOST OFTEN in your life?" I would probably have to answer Tony Scott's _Music for Zen Meditation_." It's just one of those things."

There's a persistent rumor around that there really is no "Tim P Scott", but rather a collection of pranksters with too much time on their hands who have created a web persona to see if they can get people to believe in him. There's a little more information about this on the "Jack of Shadows" page here at CD Baby; see the link immediately to the left of this frame.

!! tim p scott release NEWS November 2008 !!

A new album was just released called "The Secrets of Metals." This is the first online-only album from tim p scott. For more information and to hear clips, see last.fm, amiestreet or go to http://crow-caw.com/30-catalog/37-the-secrets-of-metals/ [or http://wp.me/PnrSR-62 ] You can also buy it from Amazon as an a la carte mp3 download.

HEY! Why is the volume of the examples so low?
The earlest few tim p scott CDs were mixed and mastered in a way that resulted in a lower average volume level. Obviously, you can make the songs as loud or as quiet as you want by a simple adjustment of the volume control. But mixing them in a playlist with a whole bunch of more contemporary songs, their volume will appear to be much lower when their turn comes around to play.
To get around this, Crow Caw Music Works is planning to make available downloadable versions of the earlier works that will be closer in level to common current practice. Check the Crow Caw Music Works website periodically for news about this project.
