Alio Die - Standing in a Place + Seamlessly Bliss
I've been spending a lot of time listening to the digital versions of these releases while waiting for the CDs to arrive. Both of these albums are representative of the more slow-moving and subtle Alio Die releases. Standing in a Place features environmental sounds and zither; Seamlessly Bliss seems to involve a number of sounds and instruments, but stretched out across long spaces. It reminds me a bit of the Honey Mushroom suite from Honeysuckle: dreamy, hypnotic, and yet full of life.

Seamlessly Bliss is my favorite of the two new ones from Stefano and, dare I say, one of the best Alio Die releases in recent memory; I can't stop listening to it.

your synth rack with your prophet and all the sound modules it looks inspiring to me.
You everything kind of compact and kind of reachable while playing.

The only downside is that you speakers when infront your synth comes from the right.
That HP printer on top looks very hot lol

I spot that Alesis Theremin

Yep, it's like having a synth that is in a permanent state of change, always unfinished, always growing ....
I'd be broke and starving if I got into it.   ;D

Yeah I heard it is dangerous addiction.

This is my current studio. Which is not finished, as when I get more money  will build more into it.
I plan to buy a 40 inch computer monitor and put it on wall..
Phillips have a good 4K screen

Equipment so far is:

Trident HG3 speakers
Antelope Eclipse 384 AD/DA converter
Eventide H8000FW for effects
Kemper amp for guitar

Besides a new computer monitor
I want to buy a new midi controller since I sold mine when I thought the behringer
motör was going to be released (it has been delayed for like 2 years now).
A good hardware compressor.

Some room treatment also.

Thom Brennan I think is underrated.
I hope he will release more music soon

considering it as an investment since it will become an collector item which you probably can sell on ebay for much more then what you gave in the future.

Well lets see who buy the book for that price.
what is expensive is very relative..so..

I have too much an ADHD to read such long article but anyway ambient music sounds best in bed when you try to sleep imo. it is really then when the music gets connected with your mind and thoughts in a very mesmerizing way.

I really miss Oöphoi  and I really miss his label, it was such and underground goldmine.
Always a steady flow of interesting EPs with alien artwork etc.

I have not the full 4cd set yet, but I have now heard the full 3rd disc, I must say, it is one of his better long form cds.
So now I really looking forward for this 4CD release!

so if I understand correctely this synth will not be available for PC ever ?
Considering this was my primary synth for ambient music it feels kind of terrible in that case..
Omnisphere have since then with 2.0 included possibility to import own samples but their interface is so damn stupid..
I perfer alchemy cause you have a good overview and you do not have to enter a lot sub menus like in omnisphere besides that I think Omnisphere has always had the superior sound quality but Alchemy has been more tweak friendly and good for ambient because of good overview of the synth in real time. I guess I will have to try omnisphere 2.0 now .. I really like the small but very important function that add your own sound..  why they have not had it before I do not understand.

I will try to download this album, I am always loyal to steve roach, he has filled so much of my existential emptiness in my life.
I wish he would upgrade some things in the studios, there is a certain superior quality to his early releases and I think the reason of that is more of an technology character then actually artistic one. His music sounded so much dimensional before again I think this is due gear change when he did move is old studio to a new location which probably made big gear changes.

I am little bit tired of his "long form" releases that are just endless loops to be honest.
While I have rated many of his long form releases 5 stars the later ones does not come close Immersion 3.

Also I think the cd sales decline is something that does not create much motivation for steve,  I really wonder how many who buy his cds nowdays even though I understand the middle age for his fans is quite high..
