Now Playing / Re: Currently listening, part 1
« on: June 20, 2008, 07:36:21 PM »
last few evenings iv been listening to Tom Heasley's "where the earth meets the sky" - it has been giving me vivid dreams - i like the long holds of tuba sounds.

on the subject of tuba - i remember watching oren marshall perform at the adelaide in London with his tuba - he would play the instrument and slowly purposefully disassemble its part and create sounds/notes with it. it was intriguing to watch and listen. a mixture of slow deep brass sounds with sparse amount of clanging as he placed tuba parts on the wooden floor. the acoustic were great! i also liked how his goofy personality was portrayed through the performance.  :P

anyway - listening to heasley's album tonight  :-*

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Alio Die

...my favorite thing by Alio Die is Fissures, his collaboration with Robert Rich.

yeah - i like the album Fissures, its the only Alio Die ive heard so far.

i often see bird like creatures being swept away across lakescapes before it morphs or merges into the surrounding silhouettes - regardly of the track titles :P

awh lena, thank you. im flattered - i usually describe things poorly.  :-[ occasionally if i do end up blurting something out it's because it excites me immensely.

im really liking videk, it makes a powerfully engaging entrance to the album. i like how it starts off with chords accompanied by subtle insect-like sounds. its almost like theres this medieval influence - with the organ-like sounds and the pitched low voice.

i am amazed by sense projects diversity. the more i listen to it, the more i like i it. videk, solar insect and the sublime are just as efficacious as the latter tracks. im glad there is more tracks with the tongues sounds. i had wondered if there were going to be tracks like Cloud of Unknowing from the Cognessence album. theres that mystic-like quality to it.

What do you think of it yourself, leech? ;)

:o hello!

im listening to the first of two part album. i immediately fell in love with tracks of the latter. the melody played by violist and keyboardist in Garden is curiously haunting, and beautiful. i like how subtle the chords come in before it all stretches creating its atmosphere. its like the scene is set in a traditional secret garden type scape, with a few personal touches. as you journey along one of the man made paths, you reach a section where the structure of the garden starts to not conform. instead of you walking along a path to see the gardens matter, it moves round you. everything starts to "float", pass you.

then! (it's my favorite track - though i keep changing my mind between track 7&8...or 6&9  :-\) Isten, which i find hard to quantify in words. it just leaves me in awe. i have to stop whatever it is im doing. i get goose bumps, every time. im not even thinking anything visually - just experiencing it as it plays. it stirs and quakes my spirit...

 :-X gee wiz youre a talented nineteen year old.

a like track ejjel a lot. yes, a lot. i wouldnt mind a whole album of something similar to this track - oh wait, steve roach does that very well already - creating soundscapes....gwa//

actually to be honest, i initially was puzzled by the arrangement of the first few tracks. not that they arent of quality as individual tracks(far from that), just seemed a bit discorded in comparison to the later tracks which seem more progressive, i felt - even with ejjel, an ambient track in between the more melodic/harmonic tracks. after a few listens though i suppose the transitional track of The Sublime bridges it.

I noticed you orginally were going to title it "The Sublime and the Beautiful" - what made the change?

 :P
