REVIEW

Kit Watkins should need no introduction to readers of Exposé — he's one of a very few artists who have been interviewed twice in our pages over the years. But do you know how many albums he has released since his debut Labyrinth in 1980? Have you heard 1989's Azure, The Unseen from 2000, or his most recent SkyZone from 2006? What about his work with the improvisational trio Tone Ghost Ether? The answer to the first question is 27, and all of them are here in their entirety on this unique data-DVD, both in 128kb and CD quality 256kb mp3s, along with graphic files [of] the original album cover art and a dozen bonus tracks to boot, many never heard before and dating back as far as '73. Such a great idea — one can only hope that other artists will follow Watkins' lead someday as well. So how does this work? The assumption is that you already have some kind of software to play mp3 on your computer; this is completely platform independent — all one needs is a computer with a DVD player and sound card. If one launches the menu.htm file in the root folder of the DVD, a web page comes up with links to each of the individual albums, or six pre-programmed playlists that group certain types of tracks together — I went directly to Channel 1 "Drifting Mind" that groups together five hours worth of ambient space tracks, but there are five other 'channels' grouping various styles of music together to choose from. But one doesn't even need to use the menu — any of the individual files can be accessed and copied to your portable mp3 player or laptop. In summary, this is a great and fun way to explore Watkins' vast back-catalog. — Peter Thelen, Exposé, Fall 2008.
