I think it's a great track. I think you nailed the Halloween atmosphere.

Thank you my friend :-)

The very best of luck with this one David, hope you knock the socks of them with your music :-)

I find that small forums tend to be very clicky, old established members seem to get response from other old established members, new members find it very hard to get any kind of response whatever the subject matter. I think that admin members of any forum should encourage new members by adding responses to threads as a matter of course and because that doesn't happen a new member gets very despondent and eventually dry's up his visits until he/she ends their membership. I am a member of 5 small forums and also Facebook. Hypnos, EM portal are very select when it comes to encouragement of any new members to get involved or indeed adding comments to those same new members posts. Mod ESP forum is very similar although the admin there seem to keep on top of encouragement for new members and many of its members know each other in the real world too. I use Mutable instruments and Korg forums for technical advice on synths etc. that I own. Facebook is by far the best social networking site for all manner of reasons. People will eventually get fed up of visiting small forums when they find that nobody has bothered commenting on a recent post its human nature.

Instruments recorded on their own independent multitrack magnetic tape and then put on a vinyl master disc are the very best format we have reached,

I agree with the first point you made, but the above one is debatable.

Depending on the kind of music you like, perhaps the 'best' sound is live sound. For instance, if you like Gregorian chant (as I do) go to hear great singers performing in a beautifully reverberant church space. No recording will match that sonic experience.

In your opinion what would you consider is the best format to hear recorded sound?

I agree, going to see/hear a live performance is probably the best way to listen to music but that's not a recorded format, its live. :-)

Anything related to that audiophile pursuit of the best sound quality money can buy has to ultimately come down to the way the music was recorded in the first place. And that then goes deeper to what the recording studio sound engineer and producer were hearing at the time. No music system can make the music sound better than it did when first recorded, if it wasn't there when it was recorded your not going to hear it on the playback however hard you try :-)

Instruments recorded on their own independent multitrack magnetic tape and then put on a vinyl master disc are the very best format we have reached, post production does its job to put those instruments into their own specific space in the audio spectrum for the best listening on various formats (vinyl, cassette or Radio waves at that time) but the pure sound of the recording has already been lost at this point. As we are in an age where 99% is recorded digitally we are left with personal preference as to how we reproduce that recorded sound and until recording studios go back in time and start producing analogue albums once again, when you play that "Vinyl only" latest release on your thousands of pounds worth of Hi Fi equipment just remember it was a PC file before you got it :-)

Forum Member Projects News and Promotion / Dark Ambient Halloween night
« on: August 10, 2015, 01:16:22 AM »
I have been offered the chance to play at a Dark Ambient/spooky Halloween night on 31st Oct 2015 and am currently sorting out a backdrop video and some souvenir T shirts. In the mean time I am going to be recording a few promo tracks to get people into the "Spirit" of things:-

Here is the first one, 13 mins long ambient drift, all hardware, played live and recorded to two stereo tracks:-)

Good luck with the gig Martyn

Thanks Andy  :) :)

This is an announcement from Phil Booth the promoter of these events

"Pleased to announce that the VT for the next concert on 4th July will be flac and/or high end mp3."

For those that don't already know, this VT is a recording of the nights music, with MC's intro/outro etc. it is specifically designed for those that don't usually attend but like to hear what went on or those that just cant get there logistically, and its great value for money at almost 3 hours of live Ambient, BS or experimental EM music. It also supports this great UK event and there aren't many of them left now. 

Its available to purchase up until the night before the event and in very rare cases sometimes after from the Awakenings website which is here :-)

 :) I have been very lucky in getting an opening spot at the next Awakenings concert in Burton upon Trent UK on the 4th July, this will be opening for Bouvetoya from Ireland and Binar England. I have recorded 3 x 10 min promo tracks to allow people the opportunity to hear the kind of thing I will be playing. My set will be a 45 minute continuous piece of music and ambient sounds and completely improvised using only Hardware instruments and FX :-)

here is a link to those tracks just in case anyone on here is interested in them

I think if anyone sits down with a specific agenda, its is bound to fail, unless they are very good professional musicians.

For me just sitting in front of my gear puts a smile on my face and that's enough to make me want to play something :-)

Playing an improvised "jam session" purely off the top of my head and not knowing what the outcome will be is the main reason I got into ambient electronic music, if I remember to hit the record button beforehand then that's a bonus for me to be able to listen back to what I just did. So for me it would have to be interest Vs outcome :-)
