and with the Rising Ambient Star Numina in attendance, the deal just gets sweeter!

Cool.  Looking forward to your future music Sean.  Wave Mantra is a gem... glad the forum members here pointed the way.

Magestic.  8)

That Klaus Wiese set sounds awesome... and highly sought after.  --- more of Brian Green here, I'm listening to the track "111" and it's sounding beautiful.  It's in the similar realm of Oophoi's Behind the Wall of Sleep in mood.  The tracks are a little unrefined, but the kid has a good ear and knows what he's doing.  I bet with an experienced mastering he could go places.  Baby...

Assuming he did mention certain classical musicians as a starting point, I'd be surprised if nowhere was it mentioned about the influence that Eastern music must have had on a lot of the pioneering and current ambient artists...

Everything and Nothing / Insights from Daniel Lanois

Aside from a strange interview at times, there was some nice juicy bits  (no pun intended).  Pretty fascinating though, and when he broke out the steel guitar and synths toward the end, made me wish Lanois could create some more ambient or downtempo in the future.

Totally agree with you Julio, and to Forrest, I think he samples his own bowl playing for what that's worth, but yeah. 


The sounds from Brian Green, check him out!  Not your run- of -the- mill tibetan bowl stuff. 

Sounds mighty decent I must say.

maybe World War ZZZZZ for snooze?

Mike, congratulations on the changes- it sounds like a great way to evolve and keep Hypnos hip to the future ;)

I scanned to find this answer, forgive me if it's been covered:  How much do you plan on pricing the typical download, particularly Hypnos and Hypnos Secret Sounds downloads?

There was also Dreams in Exile covering Vidna Obmana's River of Appearance.

This is a nice sounding album!  Takes me back to the days of Tuu or Ma Ja Le.  The same kind of sacred yet dark feel, without being derivative at all.

I miss him already, such a great artist.

The other night about a week ago, I was falling asleep to Oophoi.  As sometimes I do, I'll put my hands on my chest and stomach and do a little energy work (reiki).  As I was drifting off in a hypnotic state, I went to a place I've often thought of lately while meditating, a house in the sacred valley of Peru with a patio.  In this particular night while listening to Oophoi I "returned" to this place, but for the first time it was night.

The patio was lit up quite brightly though by the enormous full moon in the sky.  This half asleep dream now shifts into me looking into the moon through a telescope, or at least seeing the moon from that perspective, big, with the full body occupying the entire picture of my viewing.  I'm observing all the details, marveling at the craters and features while oophoi's drones are gently dominating...

I then realize consciously that the name of this album is Mare Tranquillitatus, which is of course means Sea of Tranquility, on of the many so called seas on the Moon.  It was so weird how the effective imagery the artist conveyed mixed with my intuition or subconscious, and led to that "vision", but it was quite a little experience.  Having listened to only a handful of his music it's only right to cherish and find out as many as possible.  Thank you...

Steve Roach- New Life Dreaming.  So this is the one where Steve did the Dreamtime Return era synths, and though it's not as memorable as that album, it's still skillful, pretty and kind of underrated, compared to his music of recent years.

That's fantastic, I've enjoyed so many of those albums of that label and appreciate it greatly.  Big fan of Arcticology especially and many of the artists there.

I would go with the 90's ambient act known as Baked Beans.

Naturally they were a predecessor to Gas.  OH!  A zinger... ;D ;)

most of James Johnson's music.  The Butterfly Chamber is a good one. 

Also he teamed up with Alio Die in "Cube 7" and it pretty much fits what you're looking for. 

Lately I downloaded Emanuel Errante's Humus download on Somnia label.  Though I haven't heard Herion's Out and About, maybe those 2 albums could work.

Not sure if it's your style but I would also go for something like Marconi Union or Erik Wollo, when his guitar playing meshes with ambient (like Emotional Landscapes).
