The introduction section is in the Everything And Nothing section, but what you wrote is a pretty good intro. I plan to download and listen to more of your music this weekend when I have more time. As I said earlier , I'm a sucker for drones, especially analog drones. We all came to this music through different paths which makes it interesting to read how others found it. Good luck with your music and I look forward to hearing more.

Nice work, Earth_Orbit. I have to admit that I'm a sucker for drone music. I also have been desiring a MOTM Cloud Generator for quite some time. Nice to hear it in action. BTW, welcome to the forum. There is a section for introductions on the forum and I would recommend using it. It helps us get to know you a little bit better. It's not required, but you'll find that people will tend to pay more attention to your music and are more likely to comment if they know a little more about you as a forum member.  :)

Wow! Now I'm getting excited. Where can I pre-order?   ;)

I often wonder if I have to much music, as well. I often , due to economic reasons, have to curtail my buying for a short period of time. Now happens to be one of these times as I have taken off quite a bit of time from work in the last four months or so. I had back surgery followed by a death in the family and a trip that had been planned in advance that I didn't want to cancel. I do know that soon I will go back to purchasing releases in this genre.I enjoy hearing new works and also I enjoy supporting artists that I know and like their music. I do feel a certain sense of community being on a forum like this as I have for quite sometime. I also get excited when I hear of a new release from a forum member. I can't buy them all, but I do try to be supportive. As we all know this is not a big money field, so often just the encouragement is important to an ambient artist. I'm glad that Hypnos is not going anywhere soon. I hope that everyone is able to get something out of this genre of value. I have talked to artists who are struggling to get their music heard and only wish the best for them and i will continue to be supportive when I can.

You're welcome!  :D

Hi Castleview. Welcome to the forum. I haven't had a chance to really listen to this yet. I've only been able to listen to fairly short segments due to constraints on my time this week. What I've heard so far sounds good. Hopefully this weekend will allow more time for a deeper listening. I will say that putting up an entire album is a bit overwhelming for a lot of forum members, especially for someone we don't know yet. You might try in the future putting up one track or parts of tracks. It is easy for someone to see an entire album and think , "I don't have time to listen to an album right now. Maybe later", and then never get back to it. I know I have been guilty of this in the past. anyway, just my $.02. Cheers!   Harry

I don't mind ambient noise in general - however I live on a main and busy road and somehow woosh, wooosh, woooosh of traffic does not fit in with gently meditative bowl sounds....

I know I already posted on Richard's facebook page, but I agree, this is one of the best releases of the year.

I've been listening to this quite a bit recently. Very enjoyable release. Sorry I missed it first time around. The artwork on all of Juta's releases are remarkable!

Recently saw this "Rookie's Guide to Lovecraft" which I consider a pretty good overview and starting point for anyone interested in learning about H.P. Lovecraft:
Interesting site. Lot's of good info.

I just read it and really liked it. The music improv part was most enjoyable. I guess that comes partly from being a gear fanatic, but I did get pretty excited when the outboard gear was being described. The heck with the near sex, let's play with the gear some more.  ;)  Good job, Mike.

Thanks for the info Mike and Chris. I'm looking forward to staring to read this. It sounds like I'm in for some interesting reading.

Thanks for the recommendations Thomas and Chris. I'll probably start one this coming weekend.

I've been hearing quite a bit about H.P.Lovecraft in the past year or so. I know Mike and Lena are big fans and are attending a festival where Mike is an invited guest. I have never read any Lovecraft. I was never a big horror genre reader although I did read some Poe in my youth and some Stephen King and Anne Rice in the '80's. I have been thinking about reading some recently , but never got around to it. Last week while driving home on a back road to my house I spotted a book lying in the middle of the road. Since I was all alone on the road I decided to stop and pick it up. It turns out it is a paperback copy of "The Best Of H.P.Lovecraft". I don't know if this was an omen or sign or what, but I guess it's time for me to try some. Any suggestions on what to read first? Mike? Anyone?

I have to agree with what has previously been written here. I also think a certain amount of lusting for vintage gear has to do with nostalgia.  I think as I, and many others, as we get older are able to afford gear that we could only dream of in our youth. Another good example is buying vintage cars. They aren't better than what is out now, just so much cooler. I had a 1968 Triumph TR4 when I was eighteen. I loved that car. my brother has a '66 TR4 now. I have driven it and am surprised at how uncomfortable it is to drive. But, it's still fun. Of course my Toyota Corolla can probably out perform it and is LOT'S more reliable. Still, I can't help but smile when I drive his TR4. I have gotten rid of most of my vintage synths now and I do miss them, but the gear I have now needs very little maintenance and performs beautifully. I still can't help but lust after the vintage stuff, though and can't help but smile when I play it.

It's probably to cover the cost of the extra labor. ;D

Thanks Forrest, I just ordered it. Yes, I am doing much better the last few days. This old body just  doesn't bounce back like it used to.  ;)

I didn't know Telomere had a new release out. I've always enjoyed his releases. Where is this available from, Forrest?
