Thanks. Honestly, by the time I got into his music, a lot of the stuff he's been putting on his Bandcamp was long out of print already.

I've heard a track from True North before and I enjoyed it. I thought about buying a used copy for $20 off of Amazon a while back but I passed on it.

Silent Lucidity by Grassow is one of my very favorites by him, just released on bandcamp.

I noticed that.

Also, any other Grassow albums on there that you would recommend? The selection is already staggering.

I'm so glad that Grassow has been re-releasing his old albums.

No corn around here, but there's a sugarcane field across the road from my house. I would go out and take a picture but harvesting season is almost done so all the cane has been cut.

I agree with Chris. Amazon and eBay are a life saver for someone like me, since I'm also in a rural area and there are no good music stores nearby.

Mathias Grassow - Morpheus

https://mathiasgrassow.bandcamp.com/album/morpheus

So Grassow is now on Bandcamp and he's re-released some of his old multi-disc sets that used to be on Klauswiese.com. The prices seem high but when you break it down per disc, it's not so bad.

Got Morpheus and I'm listening to the first Morpheus piece right now. Seems like something that would be perfect for sleeping or meditation.

Pauline Oliveros, Stuart Dempster, & Panaiotis - Deep Listening

A classic ambient album.

Cheers !

Dean's Harmonium and my processing / production.

When the album was released, a japanese feller sent me a picture of him holding a copy of the CD(r) he had bought in a zen-type garden in Japan - I was touched.

That's pretty cool. You two did an excellent job on that album and I need to listen to more music for both of y'all.

I enjoyed it. It is somewhat reminiscent of Fripp and Eno. A little bit of Popol Vuh in there too.

Decided to release it a little bit early. This is a shorter release than my last one. Enjoy.

Thanks for sharing that track. I enjoyed it.

Feel free to check out my Bandcamp. I make ambient music too.

R.I.P.

My favorite VST synth maker. Such great quality for a great price.

I still like to experiment with it sometimes on certain samples but usually not on a whole track. It leaves too much of its own mark on a whole track.

There are some decent textures but I can definitely hear the Paulstretch, which is a turn off for me personally. I used to use it a lot when I first started out (Fun fact: my project started out as a sound stretch experiment) but I soon realized that it wasn't too good in large doses.
