Anthony,

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.  :)

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.

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.

Uh-oh.  This might be a deal breaker:

"All Exponential Audio plugins require the iLok2 software protection key. This USB dongle is available from any music retailer."

Sounds interesting. Pete.  I'll have to check it out.

Thanks for the heads-up, Julio.  I think I may pick Nimbus up based on the recommendation from Bob Olhsson alone.  He did the mastering work on a lot of the Hearts of Space releases and did a great job mastering my Gongland album.

Oops.  And so it is.  Thanks, Julio.  I'll be even more thankful once I can get it to make nice with my Reaper.

A couple of nice releases I've been listening to lately:

Jaja - Milky Way
         Sparkles

Both of these releases are very meditative and calm.  Performed live.  Nice for late-night contemplation, especially Milky Way, which has long-form pieces spread over two discs.

Phobos - An October Evening

Also a live recording.  Hard to describe this one.  Moody and dark in places, bordering on dark ambient, with ebbs and flows, and occasional suggestions of melody.  Well done.

Thanks for the heads up on Halo Reverb, Anthony.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get Reaper to recognize it, though for reason AudioMulch does.  The installation process is pretty nonintuitive.  iLok is pretty annoying.  I'm pretty satisfied with Lexicon and Eventide's Blackhole reverb, though it would nice to find a good chamber-style reverb.

That's nice to hear.  It's an excellent album.  Does this mean that Tetsu is still around?

Unlikely. It appears to just be a re-release. Tetsu's last record was "Inland" released on Fax in 2007. If there's been anything since then, I'm unaware of it.

I'm hoping that the label secured Inoue's permission before releasing it.  Though FAX might have licensed it, the royalties need to be going somewhere, hopefully mostly to Tetsu and Vivanco.  It would be pretty cheesy not to secure his consent before releasing it, unless he somehow signed away his rights.
