Right now I'm listening to M. Griffin and Dave Fulton's Most Distant Point Known, and it's a pretty darn good collab. Also gotten a little into Fulton and Reaves' "The Range" and think it's fantastic so far. Dave Fulton seems to be a good musician to collab. with. Dweller At the Threshold is some of my favorite spacemusic- I play that during treatments often (massage therapy). 9 Dragons, your collab picks of the past are all great, those that I've heard I completely agree with. I'd echo Strata, Serpent's Lair, and most recently Distance to Zero- most powerful cd right there. Joe R has told me I must get Vine Bark & Spore and that's sounding like a good idea right now. Bill, that's a wonderful idea, Tim Story and Jeff Pearce. High hopes would be heaped on something that promising. Saul Stokes and Vir Unis' Thermal Transfer- Jeez, there's not much else good to say that hasn't already been said about it on this forum- I'll just add that it kicks ass. Oh, and without a doubt, Suspended Memories was one of my favorite ambient supergroups, by far.
Anyway Robert Rich and Forrest Fang should make a true, 50/50 collaboration. Or you could add Loren Nerell to that ticket for a great Gamelan supergroup.
Why not Steve Roach and Alio Die? Seems like that shoulda happened by now.
Since this is about dream collabs, I'd suggest David Parsons & Michael Stearns, except I doubt I'd have strong enough speakers to handle that output..
Parsons doesn't seem to collab much at all, though.
There was a similar thread in the old forum, and I believe to have mentioned Oophoi and Jim Cole. You don't need much backdrop for Jim Cole; in fact less is probably better, but if that backdrop is Oophoi it of course would be an engaging and interesting minimalist "less".
