Fripp Is “In the Court of the Cobalt King”

January 6, 2006

Music, Technology

The Microsoft Vista team has been toiling to make Vista a technically fabulous piece of work. You can find example of this throughout the December CTP. This system looks and operates with excellence as its chief design objectives

And now, that excellence is being extended to the human interface realm. Everyone has heard of the great visual touches in Vista. And I certainly welcome these. But as a legally blind user, I rely upon other senses in order to get a complete “picture” of something.

To that end, I was thrilled when I learned (from Channel 9) that a programmed soundscape was going to be part of the user experience. More simply stated, the Vista “soundtrack” will include composition by Robert Fripp (of Crimson King fame). If you care to hear pieces of the soundscape, head on over to the Channel 9 video of the studio session with Robert Fripp. BTW, I think this if frippin’ fantastic!
