One of the best Drone Ambient artists out there...

I just realized, he has not released any new music since 2003, what is he up to ?

"North" is definitely comparable with Robert Rich latest album "Mirror, ice cold ambient...

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

Are you playing a classical guitar or a steel guitar?  I suspect they don't work with wound strings, but my steel acoustic sounds plenty loud. 

Interesting video here (not me   ;)):

I play an Washburn J56SW Jumbo western guitar, did work on all the strings besides the 056 string, I guess it was too thick to make it vibrate. For me I get a quite weak sound volume.
I use the Ebow Plus by the way.

Nice video :)

Forgive me for my ignorance, I really did not though it would work, but obviously I was wrong, I did just try it on my own acoustic guitar, sure I get an ebow sound, but very low volume, it definitely need some kind of amplification if you want it the sound to be useful...

The Ebow should work on any vibrating strings, however the thicker the string is the harder it is to get it vibrate, I have not tried it on bass or heard anyone playing a bass with an ebow... it works however on my 080 string on my guitar ..which is quite thick..

And yes the Ebow does not work on acoustic instruments such as piano or acoustic guitar, in order to create an magnetic field you need and ebow + pickup.

The Ebow work best with passive pickups, it works less good with active pickups such as EMG, still works, but the response is not as fast, so you cannot play as fast.

Just make sure to use a lot of reverb (not delay effect).
Also if you want a warmer sound put the tone knob to zero this will cut out the treble in the sound.

I am really eager to hear this album as well, but I have decided to wait for his "stream of thought" release in November, and the new David Parsons, will buy all three together.

Have to say I'm quite disappointed in this release.  6 tracks--things start off strong with the first piece, and end strong with a nice theme/lap steel (last piece), but tracks 2-5 hover in abstract, formless territory for too long.  Could've used some more lap steel (which is only on the last track), or Rich's signature reverb-drenched flutes.  Also, this album sounds nothing like Stalker, mentioned on RR site.  Much closer to Below Zero if you ask me.  Overall, a good release but nothing special considering RR's overall body of work.

I have to agree, but it was kind of expected, this is a cold minimalistic drone release, also this is not an RR solo album.. But when listening to the album it is quite clear..at least in my mind that Faryus stands for the majority of music, most of the drones I think is done by him I think, but I still think something is missing. However I need to give this album some more time...It is maybe not one of his best releases but I still think the album fill a purpose.


875
Me either, I think that is maybe normal for Soundscape..that they do not send confirmation emails.

According to the newsletter, the cds will be shipped on monday/tuesday.

I think Expanding Horizon and Space is his best releases by far..

877
Fever Dreams 2 is many times better then both volume 1 and 3.

As always with Grassow, one should be aware that he release a lot of quantity music, but he have maid many quality albums for sure..I will try to find this album..

879
Well, let's wait until we here the album :)
I am sure I will be very satisfied, but I would be surprised if it is better then Mantram, that is a pure
5 star album if you ask me.

I'd put in a word for All Our Ancestors as the classic statement of TUU's sound - their most balanced and fully rounded outing.






I agree..The best album with TUU. Terma is the next best album I think.
