And now, after more than three decades, four of the original King Crimson members are reuniting under the collective banner of The 21st Century Schizoid Band . . .

Here you will find British composer Andrew Keeling's in-depth analyses of the first four king Crimson albums as well as works by White Willow.

And in more recent developments . . . Prelude: Song of the Gulls is presented completely free of charge (electronic download only) by way of introduction to his exciting new series. Prelude: Song of the Gulls contains 13,600 words, 15 pics (including some previously unpublished) and more than 80 resolution independent, multi-media, 'musical' illustrations.

The first CD in the series is "Larks' Tongues In Aspic" (also available for purchase from DGM). This is a much larger work covering the entire album and features a not-to-be-missed, full study-score and synthetic performance of LTIA Pt2
