Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: iOS - useful for an ambient musician ?
« on: April 17, 2015, 08:36:48 AM »
Reminds me of the digital v. analog flame wars of yesteryear.  Why live in a binary universe?

iOS sounds like an interesting platform for trying out different approaches to sound generation, like some of the Jordan Rudess apps.

Great multiple exposures, Forrest !

Thanks.  Part of my campaign for world dominance;)....

The Echoes segment will be rebroadcast over the weekend, which is nice.

John Diliberto's (Echoes) interview segment with me will be broadcast this evening:

https://www.facebook.com/EchoesFans

It should be available on podcast via iTunes within a few weeks.

My 50-minute mix of music and influences is also up on the Solenopole site now:

Everything and Nothing / Re: April Fools Day ignored and denied???

Maybe she meant that she didn't understand your joke ??  It's possible that she might have been mad about it.

SOME STRAY MUSIC, AN UPCOMING MIX AND AN UPCOMING ECHOES INTERVIEW

An update:  I've just posted 2 additional pieces to my "odds and sods" Soundcloud page.  One is an unreleased piece from around the time I was recording Gongland, and the other is a minimalist electronic piece I recorded over the weekend to test out some new sounds.

I was recently invited by French radio program Solenopole to provide a 50-minute mix of my music and influences.  The show's mixes are streamable off the internet.  Past participants have included Rapoon and Laszlo Hortobagyi.  I'll let you know when my mix becomes available.  Some past mixes are located here:

I was interviewed this month by John Diliberto for his Echoes radio show.  "Letters To The Farthest Star" made it to his Top 25 for February.  My interview segment is scheduled to air on April 6.

Two nice reviews of Letters from John Shanahan of Hypnagogue and Peter Thelen of Expose Magazine came in this past week, too (besides Bert Strolenberg's thoughtful one for Sonic Immersion):

That's fine, Dave.  Have at it!

I'm watching this as I wait for my laundry, which seems appropriate somehow.  :)

Both of Pete's new ones are nice.  He stretches out a bit on Iris to explore new terrain and it does tickle my brain in a good way.  Opaline is especially refined and is in the immersive ambient style I've always enjoyed, though with some interesting sonic twists.

Thanks, Pete and Scott!  Scott, I'm honored to be the first FLAC for your Pono.  I think both dreamSTATE and Igneous Flame would sound even better in 24-bit sound.

Got your message, Richard!

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Robert Rich - Filaments
« on: March 07, 2015, 09:53:47 AM »
Yes, I'm biased, being a friend of Robert's, but I think it's a really good one, especially for those who like the sequencer-based style of his earlier work.  But there's a difference-- Robert told me that the individual parts were played by hand.  The work also has a minimalist feel, too, in the sense of Terry Riley's cyclical works--very hypnotic but with quite a bit of movement.  Interestingly, I don't remember hearing any flute on this one.  Another reference point might be Gaudi.

Listening: Podcasts, Mixes, and Music Sample Clips / Re: Dishwasher drone
« on: February 27, 2015, 03:56:12 PM »
Yes, that's a real nice one, Anthony.  That treated sample almost sounds more like a dishwasher moan!  Would work really nice with a slo-mo video of the inside of a dishwasher (preferably Dave's)..:)

Sounds great, Pete!  I especially like the vocoder processing---quite a magnum opus.

LETTERS TO THE FARTHEST STAR NOW AVAILABLE FROM PROJEKT

My latest album, Letters To The Farthest Star, is now available in physical and CD form directly from Projekt:
http://www.projekt.com/store/product/pro00312/   
It is a fairly ambitious and personal project that I hope resonates with you. The album will be released elsewhere will be March 3. If you order directly from Projekt, you will also receive in digital form 3 ambient remixes/deconstructions I completed this past month of pieces from the album. The beautiful cover image for the album was provided by photographer Maciej Koniuszy.

Regards,
Forrest

Yes, Castleview, that's a nice drone piece.  Sounds like a dishwasher at the bottom of the sea.

Thanks, Dave.  I tried pasting the embed code from the Soundcloud website, but couldn't bring up an image.  Glad you guys liked the piece.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Alio Die on BC
« on: February 09, 2015, 03:04:35 PM »
That makes sense to me, Pete.  I think if listeners understood that most small independent artists receive from little or no income from streaming, they would better understand why more artists have not fully embraced it.  Particularly in the ambient genre, touring hardly makes sense but for a select few, and major labels generally receive higher streaming royalties than small indie labels or individual artists.  Given the generational shift from physical CDs and paid digital downloads to streaming, it's vitally important for the genre's true fans to continue supporting their favorite artists and labels, so that these artists and labels do not just fade away.
