Robert Fripp of King Crimson on Channel 9 recording the sounds for Windows Vista

The video is here. In the comments, robojamie sums it up from a fan’s perspective:

Being a guitar and music geek this has to be my favorite video I’ve ever seen on Channel 9. I own almost all of the King Crimson studio recordings and many of Fripps solo recordings. People that aren’t Fripp fans probably won’t understand the importance of this video. Fripp is probably the most sensitive rock musician when it comes to photography of any kind. Fripp and Crimson have the strictest anti-photogrpahy policy of any rock band and normally Fripp performs in shadows.

Fripp is probably the most technologically advanced performing guitarist in the world. His guitar rig probably cost more than many people’s homes. He has several $10,000 TC Electronic delay units. That’s just *delay*. To get an idea you can check it out his rig from 1997 at
