Everything and Nothing / Re: Psychedelia in your home
« on: October 21, 2008, 05:42:33 PM »
we have a very cool light/fog device that works with tap water and ordinary light bulbs. and it generates no more heat than an ordinary light bulb either so it is safe. it makes a very nice environment for meditation and relaxation.

Seems very cool, but might not work so good here in my one room apartment...
Anyway, you have any link to the product ?
Would like to read more about it, thanks.

If you want some psychedelia more self contained (ie when away from home) you can buy small gadgets that produce a variety of flashing light patterns in leds on 'sunglasses'. The make I have is called Orion. The range of patterns include steady pulses and you choose the frequency. They also have set programmes that start of at normal 'waking' brain frequency and thenh gently slow down into the more deep sleep brainwave frequencies for a time before bringing you back up to waking again.....

This plus headphones makes for a great and dreamy time.

Hmm, do you happen to have any link for it ?
I am interested to read more about it...

I always use the Mindfold while listening to music in bed at night, I have always thought it would be cool
to have some kind of psychedelic visuals in there, but I guess this is kind of the same thing...

I've always wanted a dream machine. It seems like it could potentially be a very effective tool for what you are talking about. The stroboscopic effect seems key in consciousness alteration...

Looks very intresting, I found a video about it on youtube



I wonder, how much does these cost ?
I can imagine they are quite expensive.

Everything and Nothing / Psychedelia in your home
« on: October 19, 2008, 04:35:00 PM »
So I have been interested in this some time now, I want to create conditions of psychedelia in my home when I listen to deep mind altering music,  with help of light and various tools that might give en beyond sensory experience or just a higher state of consciousness/awareness. I want the walls to be covered with shifting lights and shape & forms, I want the room to feel organic and alive.

Please check this little video clip for inspiration, it would be perfect to have the windows like that...with the orange/red light.

A good way to start would maybe be an psychedelic projector, have anyone tried "Mathmos Space Projector" is it really worth investing ?

Maybe a Strobe light would be cool also...

i would like to see females in ambient clothing that represented one of my favorite ambient styles - minimalism!

Hehe, took me a while to understand your "joke", but yes I fully I agree with you, the less the better :)

Listening to "Buried In The Void" now, very good funeral ambient, feels like my life fades away...into the void..

Maybe we should do an separate thread for your adventure pictures ?

871
Lucky you!

Glad you like the cd, myself are going to buy it November perhaps, if I can afford it.

Be careful, listening to mind altering music like that might get you killed :)
Personally I am very sensitive to music, so I find it hard to use it in a car, in case I feel like
running into a tree or something heh...

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Singing Bowls
« on: October 11, 2008, 06:43:10 AM »
In the UK singing bowls are often available in stalls selling nepalese or himalayan clothes at music festivals or spiritual fayres. The second of these are well worth attending as the stalls I have seen are often run by nepalese or himalayan people who want to develop interest in their culture and so tend to import good versions of what they are selling.

A slightly different tibetan sound maker is the dorje (vajra - thunderbolt) and bell. They usually come in a set, representing among other things male and female energies - the bell can be sung in the same way as a singing bowl by rubbing one of the beaters around the edge.

Thanks, sounds interesting, I do not live in UK though, but I got a friend who might be able to help me..but I think I might be able to find a good quality singing bowl online...

Check out http://www.himalayanbowls.com/index.htm, for example. You’ll see there’s a pretty large range of bowls of different sizes, materials, and antiquities. I came across fine antique singing bowls, rare & unique singing bowls, special deep singing bowls, antique harmonic sets, hand made gold color, hand made bronze color, hand made bronze engraved, hand made copper engraved, machine made cup bowls, machine made decorative copper...



Take one page, e.g. http://www.himalayanbowls.com/products.htm?categoryId=5, and you’ll see there are a variety of different sizes, and a corresponding range of prices. Compare with other pages where there are differently aged and priced specimens. I’d be spoilt for choice if I had to decide which to buy. I noticed there’s 20% off some of the stuff on this site.




Thank you for info, seems like a good site, mp3 samples for all singing bowls also which is very good..
I will go through all mp3 samples and see what I think.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Thomas Köner
« on: October 10, 2008, 05:32:43 AM »
Thanks for all the replies, it seems like he have 2 new upcoming albums then :)
Will be interesting to see what direction he have chosen this time..

Lithosphères I am sure will be quite different from his other albums.
The other album I am sure will be more related to NUUK since it will be released on Glacial Movements.

Personally "Une Topographie Sonore: Col De Vence" on the Zyklop album, too bad that the second disc are not good at all..they should have been released as individual albums imo.

I can recommend False Mirror from Germany, quite unknown ambient artist, but that have shown a lot of potential...
I think in a couple of years he will definitely be in the upper layer...

Reminds me of a Drone version of Robert Rich.
My favorite album is "North"

I made and own this: http://www.zazzle.com/235011160663167603.

But I think I need to make the text just a shade lighter. :-)

You need to be logged in to view that.

So you can make your own prints on that site ?
What does it cost ?

Would be cool to print out something like this on a black long sleeve shirt :)

or a green-blue longsleeve with the "New Life Dreaming" print
