Bandcamp doesn't distribute your music to iTunes, etc. The way I understand it is that to be on iTunes, Spotify, etc is you need to sign up with a digital distributer, (Tunecore, etc,etc), and they will distribute your music to the various platforms. For this they charge you a per album fee per year I believe, the guys who are on those platforms will no more about this, or maybe other ways.
I apologise for the amount of times I have used "etc" in this post ;D

Thank you, checked out your photos on Flickr, very nice. Will have a listen to your sounds later this week ;)

Hi Jana,

Yes I found a bit of melody creeping in from time to time. ;)

Thanks h  8)

Hope everyone affected by the storms/hurricanes will be OK. Stay safe, you can replace gear/houses/cars etc but you can't replace yourself and loved ones.

Gathered here are the remaining tracks from all my previous cassette albums, "Unknown Territory", "Approaching the Light" and "Rainbows End". Also here you will find tracks that have appeared on the compilation albums, "Pathways of Illusions", "Zenith Sampler 2" and "UK Synthtasia Live 1992"
Its available as name your price download which if you enter £0, you will get it for free.
The music is in the general melodic, sequencer based style and not like my output as Phobos.
I hope you enjoy the resurfacing of these tracks from the early 90's.

The digipaks were printed by Discromatics
They were able to do just the packaging as I duplicate my own discs.
The photos were taken by my wife  ;).

Blackhole reverb is on sale again for $47, they are having a sale item every week in May

Digital Dance to me is probably one of their worst albums, I remember getting it when it first came out and being disappointed. Their earlier albums are their best IMHO. My personal favourites are Beam Scape and Night Light.
I wouldn't have classed them as Vapourware, I tended to think they were sort of modern Berlin School, at that time, using digital instruments to provide teutonic soundscapes. For me they went off the boil after Syn Code.
And yes the saxophone is bloody terrible!

Software/ Mergener and Weisser are now on Bandcamp, all their releases are now available as downloads and some on vinyl.
Good to see these available again as a lot of their CD releases are very hard to find, or are priced at at silly figures at Discogs.

Also a nice article here
