Mozart - Ave Verum Corpus

A stunning, short choral piece by Mozart composed about half a year before his death.

Psychonavigation 2 is my favorite of the bunch. Some very atmospheric pieces (Blue Shift is like being trapped in an alien vessel) and at the center probably one of the highlights of the entire FAX catalog: The Fate of Energy. Such a cool track.

I was just listening to Inland; a masterpiece of subtle ambient music. A true highlight of the entire genre.
Any news on Tetsu Inoue's mysterious disappearance?
I suppose not...  :(

Now Playing / Chillwave

Chillwave is the calm and subtle subgenre of 80s inspired Synthwave.

There's some amazing electronic music to be found within this genre that I think certain members will appreciate, especially those who posted in the "Downpipe" thread.  8)

Here are a couple of carefully selected tracks. A great Youtube channel for this music is Electronic Gems.
Any more fans of Chillwave or Synthwave in general?

Downtown Binary - Lost

Home - Resonance (I think this is considered the classic track that more or less started the Chillwave movement)

Yuutsu - Sun

Unfound - Promenade

A.L.I.S.O.N - Space Echo

Saint Seduce & Winston - Sedna

Downtown Binary - Paradox

Steve Roach' latest.
I'm very impressed with the variety and level of detail of this album. This isn't a "born from the moment" thing but an album that he has really worked on for a longer period of time.

Been listening to various David Helpling & Jon Jenkins tracks. Some really gorgeous music.

Wagner's Liebestod, the aria at the end of his opera Tristan und Isolde, has been haunting me a long time.
Horowitz recorded this piano transcription by Franz Liszt a few days before his death.

Steve Roach - Molecules of Motion
This, and other Projekt titles, are on sale today on Bandcamp, so I picked it up. I like it okay, but I'm less partial to the sequenced work that Roach releases. I much prefer the drift-based soundscapes.

I like it but it's the final track "Empath Current" that stands out. Wonderful piece.

Currently listening to Max Corbacho - Arte Magnetica
Again some breathtakingly gorgeous tracks in there. The 1st, 5th and 6th are just... wow.

Zoetosis 2001
The Stellar Sea 2007
Lux Primordia 2013

So we might expect something in 2019. :)
Lux Primordia is a fantastic album by the way.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Epic music?

"Epic" you say?
Even if you're not into classical music, the finale of Gustav Mahler's 8th symphony is just something you have to hear before you die, at least 10 times.

Take a little time getting to know this fragment. When you "get it", it will hit you like a truck.
You don't even need to listen to the rest of the symphony (even though it's always better to listen to these fragments in their proper context; after getting to know the entire symphony).

Let's face it people, you can't just listen to gentle, soothing and pretty (ambient) music all the time.

There comes a time when you must balance it out with something loud and noisy.
This piece right here. It will fix everything and restore balance to the force. ;D
After this, you can listen to ambient music for many years to come....  8)

I recommend headphones, but you might want to adjust volume while listening.

Max Corbacho - Nocturnes II
This is fantastic. Max has always been super-talented, but I feel like he's finally found his own  unique voice in the last few releases. The opening and closing tracks of this album are worth the price of admission alone.

Thanks for the tip.  I've become quite a fan of Max. He's obviously inspired by Steve Roach but has become pretty much as good in his own right. The harmony in some of his soundworlds is absolutely gorgeous. My favorite album so far is Splendid Labyrinths, especially The Flowing Path and Wonderheart.
