Everything and Nothing / Re: Ambient Music + Copyright
« on: January 04, 2014, 11:10:21 PM »

However I don't understand why in the electronic music genre someone would need to lift an atmosphere or a drum groove etc. That seems like laziness, and yet I know it happens.

I use iTunes on my mac and winamp on my pc. I have to say i don't use the pc much for music, though. Mostly business on the pc. I like itunes for the playlist features and for burning cd's. I'm still old fashioned and don't use any other devices than stereos for listening to music. I will audition music on my computer , but it's just not where I do most of my serious listening. As far as sound quality, iTunes is good enough for me. My hearing is not what it used to be and I can't tell that much of a difference.

Merry Christmas, Mike and Lena. Hope it was a good one for you.

Ah, Soft Machine  ... still a huge favourite of mine. They did go through numerous changes, so yep the albums were of various qualities. But Third and Fourth are surely beyond compare   8)

Yep! Those are usually the ones I return to when I want some Soft Machine.  8)

Well, I'm 62 and I still remember where I live a lot of the time.

Well I am sorry to tell you, but I find some kind of time pressure, I am reaching 30, I am starting to realize you do not live forever, and life is short.
I also know artistic creativity is not exactly something that gets easier with the years, I still have it in me, but let see how it is when I am starting to reach 40.
So it feels like a battle against the time... I wish I could slow down time...

This forum has always had times of more activity, and other times of less. It's true that overall, people don't visit forums like this as much, now that social media is more of a big thing. People are more inclined to interact on Facebook, Twitter and things like that.

It does seem like a lot of the people who post here are recording artists, but I think that's a good thing. This is one of my favorite places to ask questions and get advice about technical things, for that reason.
I like that, too. On my social media sites, most of my friends are not interested in ambient music or music making and recording gear or techniques. On a forum such as this , I tend to know more about the people posting and their expertise. It is amazing to me how knowledgeable Hypnos forum members are about so many different subjects.

It is disappointing. The good thing is that many people on this forum and others have discovered her work. I will continue to follow her now. Also, great job on the music, Loren.

Just voted from my computer and then tried to vote again from my iPhone. It informed me that my vote had already been counted. Like Mike said, don't hesitate to remind us. I sometimes have a hard time remembering my socks in the morning.  ;)

This is really a great time to get familiar with Broken Harbour for those who aren't. I have all of these releases and can't recommend them enough. I'm anxious to hear the new release.

Just downloaded and am listening to Threshold Guardian. Sounds good so far. I just noticed your earlier post. No, I don't have anything up available for listening. I hope to remedy that soon. I'm getting a little more comfortable with digital recording and I have a much younger friend who is not like me and intimidated by computers who said he would help me. Now if I can just find the record button and figure out how to rewind the tape on my computer I will be okay.  ::)

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?   ;)

A Forrest Fang release is always exciting to me.  8)

Now Playing / Re: Too much music?
« on: July 11, 2013, 01:30:58 PM »
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
