OUT NOW ::  Nautic Depths - Elsewhere I (Musical Philosophy)

Comes as Luxus Digipak

(http://el-culto.com/vip/5110999f3b0d47f12/l005.jpg)

"Elsewhere I" is the deepest and most colourful album by Nautic Depths so far. As the title suggests, it explores and dives into those places any listener of Ambient Music very likely knew about. A feeling of moving out of reality and physical focus with a sense of being "Elsewhere" - like an emotional journey to known, but also new and free places. "Elsewhere I" (followed by Part II later) is particularly inspired by these mind-based territories we can only reach through our imagination...

OUT NOW ::  Tomas Weiss - Zeitlos (Musical Philosophy)

Comes as 4-panel Luxus-Digipak with full panoramic graphics on the cover.


(http://el-culto.com/vip/806336a25b124b1d3/l005.jpg)


Minimal but highly emotional drones to rich walls of sound, each title consists of subtle movements embedded in a colourful bed of several tone layers. The aim was to create an exceptionally warm-sounding album you can repeatedly listen to in situations requiring a "mental calmness" without cold / noisy tones or a harsh overall sound. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered with analog equipment to retain the unique sound delivered by non-digital hardware. Feeling "Zeitlos" ("Timeless" in English) is doubtlessly a desirable state of mind for most if not all of us when searching for personal rest... and that's what the album is made for!

Important info about CDs by Mathias Grassow listed on el culto

Some time ago we were informed that the music on several albums by Mathias Grassow includes uncleared samples of releases by other artists. In legal terms "uncleared" means that an artist used music (sound samples and / or sections) from other works without permission from the legal owner of the copyright, and presented it as their own. After some detailed research, we unfortunately have to confirm that this information is correct, and refers at least to the following CDs by Mathias:

:: Transpersonal
:: Calibration
:: 3rd Dimension
:: Fata Morgana

Two of those albums ("Transpersonal" and "3rd Dimension") extensively use sounds and complete sections from the song "Løyndomsriss" by the band "Wardruna".

A track on another album ("Fata Morgana") uses the complete guitar and synthesizer section of the track "The First Snow" by the band "Drudkh".

Finally on "Calibration", an entire track was taken from the previously released album "Perfume" by Klaus Wiese.

As we are sensitive about copyright issues and have respect for the artistic works of other musicians, we have decided to delete the afore-mentioned CDs from our site, and el culto will cease to distribute these albums from now on.

Despite this unfortunate news, we will still proceed with the re-release of "Himavat" in 2014, because the whole album (new mixing / mastering, covers, CDs) is already manufactured and was previously approved by Mathias (together with Himalaya and Dagaz). However, this will be the last album by Mathias directly released by el culto.

Greetings,
Tomas

This is very disappointing to hear.  I like what I've heard of his more recent releases.  I remember that on an early album ("In Search of Sanity," I think) he used an extended sample from one of Steve Roach's early 90s albums without getting clearance first.

I think blatant plagiarism (piracy of sorts) is one thing, but 'reworking' material is a much more grey area. What do you need to do to a sound / sample to make it 'yours' ? I'm sure some legal musicologists would know. Is reversing it enough, for example ?

Interesting point on the legality side, all manner of sample packs and ambient libraries are used 'as is' frequently. I used to work with a guy who used those Acid Loops CDs entirely to create (so called) 'Hypnosis music' CDs, which sold very well. Personally, I thought he wasn't doing much artistically to create them, but who's to say how people should use this material ?

PLEASE guys…don´t start here a deeper discussion about legal terms (maybe a new thread for it in another section?). This here was only an info about some CDs with issues listed on el culto and why they are not available anymore.

@Pete: It depends on national rules and contracts between states and also on royalty companies for author right. Here in Germany our highest court said, even 2 seconds is not allowed to sample. And if you want sample you have to have the permission and need to credit the source at least.

Sample libraries are LICENSED to people who bought this package and can be used it as much as wanted afterward…same goes for AFAIK any synth and use of the included presets. BUT, some years ago even Spectrasonics asked for credits if you use some of their libraries for an official release!

Tomas, just playing Devil's advocate here, but you did choose to share this information on the forum.  People are now not allowed to discuss it?  Personally I wish you would've kept the details off the forum as it seems a private matter, and to be honest it's not what Mathias' fans want to hear.  Or you could've just said "for legal reasons" instead of the sordid details.  I really didnt think it belonged on the forum at all.

Chris, is it really so difficult to understand what i´m asking for?

"PLEASE guys…don´t start here a deeper discussion about legal terms"

The post was ONLY about some CDs we´ve decided to cut on our site and also to explain the reasons why we´ve decided to do so - thats all, straight forward and pretty fair. It wasn´t meant as an invitation to start here general analyses or presumptions about this legal issue, others can´t judge at all - neither it´s a welcome post for people derailing this thread with heavy emotional weight (as you do it right now). It can´t be an excuse not to post issue which are clearly belong to this thread (el culto news) just because a fan don´t won´t like to hear it. I really can´t believe you mean this seriously as it sounds like someone denies to read news because he could be disappointed about what happen in the world.

Tomas

LIMITED BUNDLE :: Solveil - Con Sense

(http://el-culto.com/vip/511099a1a3129890a/l003.jpg)  (http://el-culto.com/vip/511099a1a3129890a/l004.jpg)

Solveil offers a versatile combination of deep and spacy electronic music. Based on essentially Ambient moods, this CD adds amazing colours and subtle rhythms, drifting into more psychedelic paths but still keeping a stable mood in the direction of moody and advanced Ambient Music. Very hard to describe in words, but expect an exceptional journey through different and very atmospheric ideas - it clearly sets a mark in what can be done today by merging Ambient/Space Music and Electronica. Moreover, the release comes with an additional ultra limited Bonus CD featuring a stunning Live Set - performed in Athens - recorded in brilliant Full Stereo (!!!) quality...highly recommended!

I would like to add another thumbs for both "Zeitlos" and "Revelation". Two more release that carry on the deep ambient that el culto is known for. My favorite time to listen to music is as I go to sleep at night. These fit that purpose. I've been listening to them back to back for a few weeks and I am still discovering them. I always look forward to the next el culto release.     

I hope that lessons are learned and that Mathias can be forgiven. It would be a great loss if not.

I saw a used copy of Ming Noir go for at least $60 (probably higher) not too long ago on Amazon. It's not exactly easy to get for a reasonable price nowadays, and it's far from the only one like that either.

Nautic Depths & Nunc Stans - Falling Silent (Musical Philosophy)


www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Tazp74pPeU (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Tazp74pPeU#ws)

About 2 years in progress, Falling Silent is the first collaboration album by Nautic Depths. It explores sombre and highly intimate sound worlds, maintaining an expressive flow with many embedded details. So far it´s the warmest album by Nautic Depths, with a focus on touching and latent harmonic layers especially in the lower end of the music - you won´t hear any intrusive or ear-piercing sounds on this album. Falling Silent works perfectly for any kind of relaxation and personal reflection, as all music is mixed without interruption between the tracks.

By ordering "Falling Silent" within the first 5 days of our preorder (available soon), you will get a special price for the upcoming 2nd part of the first Nautic Depths album "North Passage":

North passage II - The last journey

When available later this year, you will get this ultra deep follow-up in luxury Digipak for 15 Euro only (Worldwide including shipping). In addition, you will receive this album 1 month before the official release date!

Just pre-ordered this. The sound sample, with headphones, sounds great, and the cover art is intriguingly bleak. I'm really looking forward to it!

Title: Shipping to Ukraine
Post by: combox on July 19, 2014, 05:57:37 PM
I was shocked when Tomas said that he wont send the CD becourse I live in Ukraine. I always was ordering all the cds and releases from Musical Philosophy all this time. Im very big fan of ambient music and now its a shame that the artists mix the political situation with music tastes and with music worlds(( Im really dissapointed.. I have no idea how to get now a new cd and also forthcoming also((( shit

Hello Dmytro,

I don´t understand why you post it in this thread (maybe one of the moderators can move both post to the "el culto news" thread???), but all you´re saying about me mixing politic and music is totally untruth. To rectify your assumptions, here is the email i´ve sent to you:

"Hello Dmytro,

You probably haven´t received my previous information email with the lastest news about shipping (it was also announced on the web site). Since some month we have changed our shipping policy...see here:

http://www.el-culto.com/shop/index.html (http://www.el-culto.com/shop/index.html)

For postal and logistic reason unfortunately we don´t ship anymore to several countries in the East (Ukraine included).

I´m sorry for possible dissapointments!

All the best,
Tomas"



So please stick to the truth!

Greetings,
Tomas

once again you are posting personal information on the forum,  did you ask for his permission to post his real name ?
not all want the online alias linked to a real name... (I asked a moderator recently to remove mine)

I decided to edit some text. just want to say, that I really hope Tomas will change the situation in the future, coourse the ukrainian fans are most loyal. as for me - i never told that some parcel lost and I agree to take all the risks if the parcel will be lost, and pay once again if it happens. I just want to have music that I like - thats all!! Nothing more. Course Im ambient music fan! I like digipacks and clear quality digipacks!!

Well I'm not surprised...

Tomas has the most harsh comments here, I don't understand why..

My suggestion is to buy somewhere else, maybe other labels that ship to Russia?

:: PREORDER ::

Klaus Wiese - Maquam (2014 Version)

(http://www.el-culto.com/vip/806336a38d1024b12/l005.jpg)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyjWXDDt_Z4 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyjWXDDt_Z4#ws)

The second Arc release "Maquam" is a magnum opus in the world of deep Ambient Music. The album includes 3 very long tracks, offering hypnotic expanding soundscapes and subtle rhythms leading to a mental Trance state.

:: Remastered by el culto with the main focus on correcting all errors (clicks, digital Dat-Sync error noises etc), often clearly audible in almost each original release. To preserve the unique, warm sound Klaus is known for, each track was treated using individual chains of analogue equipment only.

:: PREORDER NOW AVAILABLE ::

Quiet Calling IV (First Edition incl Bonus CD)

(http://www.el-culto.com/vip/806336a3b50f22111/l002.jpg)

:: Limited to 100 copies only
:: 20% discount for all other CDs listed on el culto (as long as stocks last)
:: All Preorders will be shipped 4 weeks before the official release date.

A mindbending continuation of this series. Deeper than ever before, the album features slow hypnotic movements with harmonic, morphing structures with a great sensation of space.

SOON:

Klaus Wiese - Shapes I (Previously Unreleased / 2015 Version)

Shapes I is the first chapter of the Shape Series which wasn´t released anywhere else before. Most previously released albums by Klaus Wiese were clearly split into releases with a more acoustic approach (e.g. the series "Tibetische Klangschalen"), while other CDs like "Space", "Divine Orbit" and "Maquam" had a very spatious, hypnotic and timelessly flowing ambient feeling. The Shape Series focuses on the latter style, inviting the listener to experience a deep, lasting journey through time and space.

Tomas Weiss & Nuur - Polaris

(http://el-culto.com/vip/806336a48a11c5c10/l003.jpg)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQ2W52ZFYfc

"Mystical, with a narrative that feels both cold and warm…if you believe these opposites can't be successfully reconciled on a single album, listen to "Polaris" and think again - Touché…with Polaris, Tomas Weiss and Nuur have created the Ambient/Drone album of 2015" (Yle - Finish State Radio)

- - - - -

"Almost 60 minutes in another world…it´s very hard not to press the repeat button on my CD player. "Polaris" clearly proves that it´s not at all about simple notes, but about time, tones and moods….a stunning and mind-blowing album by Tomas Weiss & Nuur, and a pure gem in experimental electronic music…forget about musical genres and just listen" (HR2 - German State Radio)

Aestrata - Submental Vol 3

(http://el-culto.com/vip/806336a48a11c5c10/l005.jpg)

Aestrata returns with the brand new, long awaited album for the Submental Series. The album unfolds into magnificently immense and expansive wide-screen drone panoramas, flowing and ebbing, utterly warm and tranquil, hauntingly enriched by subtle embedded slow melodies. Warmly pleasant and spacious drones flavored with various distant sonic fragments.

Special Preorder:

:: Limited to the first 50 preorders only.
:: This offer includes a lenghty Bonus Track as download in the format of your choice (FLAC or mp3).
:: 20% discount for all other CDs listed on el culto (as long as stocks last).

Hi Tomas. Are the first three Quiet Calling discs among those that have been remastered? It says "2016 Version" next to them, but I can't tell if that's just referring to them now being formatted as one track.

Thanks.

Hi there,

all of them are remastered for Bandcamp - Quiet Calling I (2017 Version) comes now also with a previously unreleased 20-minutes track.

Best wishes,
Tomas
