Corbacho's "Breathstream" is great, as is his new "Ars Lucis," which is even more chilled and "Immersion" like.

Agreed. That first track on Ars Lucis is breathtakingly gorgeous.

Lots of good stuff this year. I enjoyed a lot of releases already mentioned ("Phantoms," "Rigning," any of the many Roach albums), but to keep things interesting, here are 10 others that've also impressed me:

Arktau Eos - Ai Ma Ra
Ben Frost - By the Throat
Mathias Grassow - Transpersonal
Mathias Grassow & Tomas Weiss - Quiet Calling II
Igneous Flame & Disturbed Earth - Harmonium
Lustmord - [ The Dark Places of the Earth ]
Raison d'etre - The Stains of the Embodied Sacrifice
Robert Rich - Live Archive (hell yes!)
Bruno Sanfilippo - Piano Textures II
Troum - Eald-Ge-Stréon / Abhijñâ

Whoa...really?

I've got a huge soft spot for Kenji Kawai's scores for the Ghost in the Shell films.  Bizarre and beautiful; wonderfully atmospheric.

Thanks, Mike and Andy, for the info.  I'll be crossing my fingers for Calling as well.

I'm eagerly trying to complete my Seren Ffordd discography.  Is there any chance recordings like Vajra Storm, Calling, and MooN will ever be made available (whatever the format)?

I purchased both of these albums, as well as your Formaria project's 8 Shades of Sound from Atmoworks.  After just one listen each, I can say I'm very impressed!  Great atmospheres.  Loved the two little bonus tracks that came with Harmonium as well.

And wow, the audio samples for Gigi's new one are glitchy, indeed.

Hmmmm...where are you finding these samples, good sir?

Ugh...really not down with the whole glitch scene.  Too many bad associations with scratched discs and busted stereos.

I'll cross my fingers and give it a listen, though.

Very stoked for this.

It's from an album called Cosmic Chasm.  It used to be available (as a CDr) from www.klaus-wiese.com, but now it seems they've closed.  I'm not sure what other vendors might sell it.  You could try contacting Mathias personally.

Great news!  I've been craving some new Between Interval for a while now.

Good thread and good calls.  The piece that came immediately to my mind was:

Mathias Grassow - "The Empty Sky"

His 2-disc "Space" also achieves this effect nicely.

Most of Oöphoi's albums and EPs do this too, particularly "Athlit," "Nocturnes," (collab with Paradin) and, of course, "Celestial Geometries" with Tau Ceti.

The newest Lustmord, "[ The Dark Places of the Earth ]" (A retooling of material from "[ O T H E R ]" without the lame guitars) is a nice black slab of cosmic indifference.

I also really dig the new Igneous Flame/Achromus collab "Halo."

For the being-swept-away-in-a-cosmic-storm effect in particular, I like Phaenon - "Submerged," and I.Corax - "The Cadaver Pulse I: Sealed in a Radiant Larval Maelstrom" (if you can get over the title, the music's quite captivating, in a grab-you-by-throat-with-its-teeth-and-shake-you-around kind of way).

*Edit: To Seren:

It's from Time Fragments Vol. 2 (it's the second track).

The whole disc is amazing - one of my favorite ambient journeys.

Oöphoi - "The Last Farewell"

One of the most achingly beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard.

That track is amazing, Loren.  I have a soft spot for this particular style/subgenre, which I've taken to calling (pace Arvo Part) "Tintinnambient."  Please keep us posted on this projects.  I can tell it's going to be something special.

I'm intrigued.  Is it all drift (I'm hoping so), or does Padilla break out the sequencers at some point?
