wut wut wut wut

I think it's awesome. Can't wait for the album to come out.

Yes.  It's about time!  Saw them open for Ride in the early 90s.  Fantastic show.


Congratulations, Stephen!

I've been enjoying your "Music To Walk Through" album this week.  Some really great ambient textures in there.

I found out today that my "Sleepwalker's Ocean" album made it to one of Keyboard magazine's Top 10 lists for 2016.  Very surprised and excited:

now playing...


FYI, Rod Modell has a new one ("Mediterranea") on Echospace.  It's really good:

This Bing Satellites release just came out just a few days ago and sounds really good:

Yes, this style it's not for me.

This much is apparent.  The rest of your "advice" I would take with a grain of salt.

Not needed, thanks.

Isn't the internet wonderful?   Hard to tell a bot from a critic these days.  ;)


I think you have the title for your next album:  "No Handrails."  ;)

I've been enjoying your collab with Julio this past week.  I think the edginess of Julio's modular sounds compliment the softer palate you use very nicely.  Yes, there are occasional Eno/Budd reference points, but I don't see that as a bad thing, since your distinctive style and Julio's unique timbres come through.  Congrats to you and Julio for such a nice release!


Thanks for the offer, Anthony.  I'm OK with waiting for the physical disc.  I like to be pleasantly surprised.  :)

SoundToys and Native Instruments have Black Friday sales, too!


Sounds really interesting, guys.  Just placed an order for the physical CDR.


Hi Pete,

Finally got around to listening to "Ocean Sighs" through headphones on my home hi-fi, and it's a really nice one.  In places, it has almost a hymnal quality to it.  It still has the stamp of your drifting ambient style, but in places, closer to a song-like form.  Well done!

A 1000 eh,

I've not reached that elusive figure and I've been here for 9 years and Mike still hasn't banned me yet :)

Well, then, maybe we should start a discussion about whether or not ambient is "new age."  ;)

Hi Pete,

I've been slammed with work lately, so I haven't had the chance to burn your album to CDR for home stereo listening, but will do so soon.  I've liked what I've heard so far via streaming.

Great to hear, Loren.  Nice to see it's been expanded, too.

A limited time freebie--an EQ from SoundToys (Sie-Q):

But I think it can cut both ways, Julio, and it sure has in this forum in the recent past.  No need for folks go Trump on anyone to get their point across.  We can't all agree on erevything, and it's probably better that we don't.  Sometimes discretion really is the better part of valor.


Thanks, Scott.  If there were such a thing as "richly fragranced writing," Richard would have it, hands down!  :)

I do have a iLok license manager, but that is software-based.  I don't get why they can't just use that instead of a hardware dongle.
