Topic: Dos (band)


  
  Dos (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dos rarely tour extensively, owing to both Watt's touring schedule with fIREHOSE and later, as a solo artist and member of The Stooges and Banyan, and to Kira's decision to work full-time, first as a computer programmer and then, currently as a movie sound designer and foley artist.
Dos' recorded and live repitoire consists of both original instrumentals (some of which would later have lyrics added to them to become fIREHOSE or Watt solo songs), some original vocal pieces, and cover versions sung primarily by Kira and rearranged for their two basses.
In June 2004 Dos did their first mini-tour in several years, doing three gigs at jazz festivals in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, Canada, right before Watt had to fly to Europe for a tour as one-fourth of the reunited Stooges.

 Dos - Biography - AOL Music
Dos is a curious yet interesting double bass guitar side project for Mike Watt (of the Minutemen and fIREHOSE) and his former wife, Kira Roessler (from Black Flag).
Formed as a vehicle to take the bass beyond its perceived background role and into the forefront of a band, Dos (named for the Spanish "two," not some operating system) also became a therapeutic experience in the wake of Roessler's departure from Black Flag and, more tragically, Minutemen D.
Despite such infrequent activity, it should be noted that Dos has now become the longest-running band project of Watt's career, as well as the main one in Roessler's.

Their penchant for grooves became clear as they rocked small local venues, and basked in the glory of bobbing heads and booty shaking fans, yelling "Viva DoS...Siempre!!" Dos was officially on the DC music scene; and they were on it in a major way.
In late 2006, the band took a hiatus from performing to concentrate on evolving the sound.
Dos is now back on the scene with a newly blended style, fully prepared to take on DC's music scene, bringing a much needed feast of creativity, soul, passion, and fucking excellent music to the starved region.

 Text of MIJ-NSR Volume 3, Article 31   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
In all the spectra a sharp and narrow signal is seen at 3.42 eV marking the excitonic band gap in GaN underneath the ternary layer.
The continuos nature of the signal and additional extrema on the high energy side strongly indicate that this signal are Franz-Keldysh oscillations at the band gap in the presence of a large electric field F [40] [23].
The maximum of the PL in the vicinity of the band gap appears to be redshifted with respect to the absorption DOS band gap derived in the PR experiment.

An alternative method for doing this is to change the permissions of the `hppacache' program so that it is in group `sys', and to turn on its "set group ID on exec" permission bit, but since this also requires you to be super-user, you might as well just execute the program as the super-user.
The bands are shared by all of the supported operating systems so you only have to build the bands once, even if you want to use them from, say, both DOS and Windows 3.1.
After building the bands you may tidy the MIT Scheme group by removing the mincer icons and recover disk space by deleting the delta files [4.1Mb] and the `runtime.com' band [2.3Mb] if you do not need it.

 dos (the band)
lots of dos gigs at this time consisted of kira flying out to meet watt while he was on tour with firehose and open for them during a stretch of four or five dates.
dos songs have come from jams, from lyrics given to them, are covers of great female vocalists they admire, the songs come from other bands they have played in, are written together, are written with one writing both bass lines, just about any way a song can come about, they have.
dos gigs became fewer and fewer though with watt embarking on a solo career after releasing "ball-hog or tugboat" in 1995 for columbia that contained almost fifty people helping watt out to form a band for each song on it.

 Trio Nova
Guitarist Pete Devine and bassist Mike Vogelmann, band mates in a bar band that had just broken up, decided to stay together as a duo to play instrumental covers of songs they liked irrespective of style or era.
They wanted to include a drummer/percussionist to the band but as they searched for the right musician to fill that post they used a drum machine to add the rhythmic groove: a compromise at best.
Since that time the band has refined its sound, become more exploratory musically and more empathic as a unit.

With the release of their second self-produced CD, DOS, this band has shown the drive and the determination to make it in the big leagues.
DOS was over six months in the making, and the patience bore fruit.
A lot of bands don’t spend a lot of time, and we wanted this to be our project, our lifelong project." This is definitely the kind of CD that will bear a legacy.

 Orquesta del Desierto Album Reviews
What a paradox: while you think you might have a very good idea of what this band sounds like, just based on who’s in the band (like many people obviously do/did), it’s in reality one of the most eclectic, non-conformist albums the “scene” (let’s call it “desert rock,” for clarity’s sake) has ever spawned.
A great showcase for the band at its most exotic and colourful is the bright opener “Life without Color,” an impressionistic celebration set to the soundtrack of the American Southwest (and no, I’m not talking about Herb Alpert here).
Dos doesn’t represent a groundbreaking revolution, but it fulfils the intention Brown and Co. were thinking of when they started out making a collaborative effort that would display themselves and their peculiar surroundings in a way some people may not have expected, but all the more should be impressed by.

 Accurate DOS and Band-structure calculations
Partial DOS are very powerful for the analysis of the electronic DOS (see section 7.29).
For larger cells it is often only possible to do calculations for one or two k-points (due to restrictions in central memory).
The usual way, to do DOS or band-structure calculations in this case is the following: the charge density and the effective potential converge rapidly with increasing number of k-points.

Schematic of the electronic bandstructure in the presence of a large electric field F. Due to reflection at the inclined conduction band edge states in the conduction band establish a phase correlation in energy in the location of the interband transition indicated by the red line (Franz-Keldysh oscillations).
Below the band gap energy evanescent waves contribute at an exponentially decaying rate controlled by the tunneling probability given by the area of the lower shaded triangle (Franz-Keldysh effect).

The C back end was written very recently, and we do not use it ourselves for development--we have native back ends for the hardware that we use regularly.
Many bugs are detected when programs try to do something which is impossible, like adding a number to a symbol, or using a variable which does not exist; this type of mistake is called an error.
Note: when restoring a saved band, the Scheme executable must be configured with a large enough constant space and heap to hold the band's contents.

Before using a pseudopotential intensively, it is not only required to test it for various bulk phases, but the pseudopotential should also reproduce exactly the eigenvalues and the total energy of the free atom for which it was created.
The reasons for this behavior are: Due to the finite size of the cell a band dispersion exists i.e.
Nevertheless we recommend this setting only for experts: in most cases the degeneracy of the p- and d-orbitals is removed and only the mean value of the eigenvalues remains physically significant.
