We’re excited to announce the upcoming release of jason.sloan’s 15th solo album Fall of the Fifth Sun, available August 30, 2012. The album will be available in hard copy CD format or as a download at all the major digital outlets.

About FOTFS, Jason says:

“The majority of material on Fall of the Fifth Sun was conceived during the multiple live concerts I gave throughout 2011 and early 2012. These song sketches were reworked and then recorded in the studio over the past year.

While still sonically similar to my last few albums, FOTFS was created with only hardware. Going into these sessions, I wanted to create a record that had an edge and felt fresh, but also an essence of nostalgia for the classic electronic music of the 70′s and 80′s, so hardware was the only way to go. Equipment used to create this album: Roland SH-101, Korg Poly-800, DSI Mopho, Juno-60, Yamaha DX7, Korg Monotribes, Roland TR-606, Alesis Wedge, Boss CE-3, Steinberger GL and Fender Stratocaster guitars.”

Fall of the Fifth Sun has a 56 minute running time and will be packaged in a gatefold wallet style sleeve.

You can stream a 16 minute album preview at the below links:

Slo.Bor Media celebrates its 10 year anniversary. Matt Borghi has posted a great blog discussing the first decade of Slo.Bor Media. There's also lots of new releases and concerts planned for this year too. Check it all out over at: http://slobormedia.org

Friday August 5, 2011, from 11pm-12am EST, jason.sloan performed live on the Sadayatana program for StillStream radio. The audio was simulcast live on 93.5MHz in the Baltimore metro listening area and consisted of three all new electronic ambient compositions created for this broadcast. If you missed the concert you can now stream it at jason's site or over at slo.bor media. Jason also made available a free download encoded with ID3 tags and ripped at 320kbps with index markers for easier navigation. If you didn't get a chance to hear the music, I personally recommend you check it out. Fans of jason's late 90's and early 00's pure ambient work ie: Shoreline of an End, Space Between Beginnings, Still will no doubt be into this set.

SloBor Media is proud to announce the debut release by Peter G. Brown.

Ten Years of Dust reminds us that good music composition transports you – it changes your world. Like any great art, it can take you from where you’re at to someplace else. It can evoke feelings and places, other cultures, other worlds and maybe other universes. Subtly reminiscent of Budd and Eno’s The Pearl, Ten Years of Dust blends delicately layered piano with guitar, strings and electronics to create a sound world perfect for late night listening.

Peter’s ability to unify synthetic and organic timbres is unlike any recording that we can recall. Ten Years of Dust has moved beyond the territory that Tangerine Dream had broached and Radiohead attempted with Kid A, but neither of these masterful collectives were able to move beyond. Peter’s done it and then some. The freshness of this recording is quite rare these days and long overdue.

Peter G. Brown: Ten Years of Dust is a download only release that is now available in all good digital retailers, itunes, eMusic, Rhapsody, etc.

jason.sloan's new studio album corruptedHorizon is now available. we just got the discs back from the plant the other day and they look great!
Stylistically, corruptedHorizon picks up where jason's 2009 studio album [ -- ] left off. Inspired by his live performances over the last decade, corruptedHorizon melds bits of IDM, ambient, pure electronic, glitch, shoegaze and subtle tribal leanings to spin a complex but enjoyable listening experience that defies easy classification.

corruptedHorizon is available both as a hard copy disc and as high quality digital download with full artwork.
to purchase, head over to the store section of http://jasonsloan.com

Just in case you missed Jason's 60 minute concert on STILLSTREAM last night, it's now available for free streaming at:

http://jasonsloan.com

The performance was an awesome mix of both the ambient soundscapes he's created for nearly a decade while also exploring the rhythmatic and grittier electronic ambience of the last few years.

Hope you enjoy,

Just a quick reminder about Jason's live set tomorrow night on STILLSTREAM. From what he told me yesterday, the set should be starting around 10:30pm (eastern) and last for about an hour. I heard a bit of him rehearsing yesterday, and it sounded pretty awesome. Be sure to check it out.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / jason.sloan [ -- ] NEW ALBUM!
« on: April 20, 2009, 11:34:38 PM »


jason.sloan [ -- ] will be officially released april 27th. pre-orders are now being taken at: http://jasonsloan.com
visit the store's limited edition section to place your pre-order. this first edition will sell out quickly.

the first 100 copies will be a signed and numbered edition with the disc housed between two 1/4" pieces of perspex. those attending this past weekends gatherings concert in philadelphia with jason.sloan & saul stokes had the chance to grab these up first. we took about 30 copies and sold them all very quickly. once the limited run has expired, [ -- ] will be sold as an unlimited standard jewel boxed edition.

review of [ -- ]

Jason Sloan's explorations in sound, texture and atmosphere go a bit further on his cryptically named CD [--] (41'02"). Until his performance at The Gatherings Concert Series in 2008, Sloan's music was smooth and spacious. It opened up and filled ambient areas with the slow motion of sustaining chords and a gradual metamorphosis of timbre. By adding the elements of rhythm and melody, his live set provided a surprisingly deeper examination of the interior landscape - and most probably led to the realization of [--]. The six tracks are more song-like than previous works. With layers of reverberant e-bow guitar over sampled percussion loops or cloud-soft synth pads churning alongside digital-age beats, Sloan's musical ideas posses a shimmering exuberance. Expanding beyond the uniformity of structure found on his past albums, the energy of the new fuller arrangements is subdued by dreamy atmospherics. Sparking then smoldering, this album plays out across an ever-changing landscape - and deserves praise for aiming so high.

- Chuck van Zyl / STAR'S END
