Hi Eelke, welcome at Hypnos, it's really nice to meet you on this forum. I just got your "Resonating Earth" and "The Child Set Free" CDs, so I can't wait to explore some darker soundworlds from The Lowlands. Met vriendelijke groet... :)

Hi forestmage, I am sure you will enjoy "A Quiet Light" CD as much as you did earlier work of Meg. You can trust to Bill's review, he is true to his words. All the best.

Hi Loren, thanks a lot for all your updates, nice to see you active with several projects. I definitely will stay tuned for upcoming "Intangible" CD. Regarding your live set at SoundQuest Fest, I am one of those who have missed this great event, so I would really appreciate your decision to release it on CD format, I really hope it will be possible. All the best from Slovakia... :)

Yes, agree with Seren, nice digipak, good job, Mike!!! I think I prefered more uncoated silver disc, but no problem with accepting this one. Maybe the white surface fits better the album title. In any case, I will be ordering it very soon.

Hi Scott, now after reading your nice preview words on "A Quiet Light", I am even more excited. I didn't listen to any excerpts as I want to be fully surprised when the CD arrives into my mailbox and I think there is no need to listen to them when it goes to artists like Meg Bowles. Have an enjoyable time when talking with Meg on your radio show!

I ordered my copy of "A Quiet Light" too and I can't wait to hear it!!! Time is running very fast, already 12 years passed since the wonderfully evocative "From The Dark Earth" album. So I think many of us are really looking forward to Meg's new work.

I think this is great news for all those who have followed Meg Bowles during the 90's. At the end of February Meg released on her own Kumatone Records fifth album, "A Quiet Light" CD. Maybe Meg will post more news on this forum, until then feel free to find out more on:

Welcome back, Meg, and all the best... :)

That should be no problem. I was in the same situation and ordered mine from Stefano with a few other releases and he put those releases into the box instead of the original ones...

Yes, just the same for me as mentioned by Wanterkeelt, so get in contact with Stefano and I am sure he will find some reasonable solution for you.

Hi headonist, if you can get the "Castles Sonorisation's Series" Box Set, go for it, I think Stefano has still available some of them. Each one comes with unique mosaic and packaged in handmade box, I can only recommend it to each collector and Alio Die fan!!!

Hi Joe R,

Oophoi's "Time Fragments" Box Set was released several weeks ago by Practising Nature/Databloem, I think it was around January 14th. I also have posted small announcement about it on this forum at the same day. Link:

http://www.hypnos.com/smf/index.php?topic=3624.msg27900#msg27900

Unfortunately, the Box is most likely sold out already, but all 7 component pro CD-Rs of this set are available by Hypnos. For those living in Europe, CD-Rs are available by Databloem or directly from Gigi/Oophoi as signed copies.

All the best.

« on: February 21, 2011, 01:48:42 AM »
As for myself, I definitely like the newest digipak packaging of Hypnos CDs, "Out and About" by Herion looks really nice and it was very good decision to go this way, Mike. I am not a big friend of sleeve packagings, yes, you can save a lot of storage place, cheaper shipping costs, but the insert/artwork can be easier damaged during the shipping and without a spine it's more difficult to find even if well organized. And the final product is less attractive in most cases. But there are some exceptions, for example Faria Records packagings with cards or Amplexus with its sublabels, no spines, but these ones are closer to special collector's items than to sleeve only packagings. I am a collector, so I have to accept that my growing collection will require some extra space, I think you have to deal with this no matter what you collect. Anyway, here are the types of packagings in order of my preference:

Special collector's item
Digipak (all types, with spine)
Standard jewel case (also plastic case with spine, dataObscura as example)
Slim single jewel case (with spine, Practising Nature/Bluebox as example)
Slim jewel case (with no spine)
Sleeve/wallet (with no spine)

Thanks, Loren, for posting nice words on your personal meetings with Lucette. May she rest in peace and love.

We are not used to these extremely sad and terrible news on this forum, unfortunately the life can be so fragile... We will miss Lucette very much! My sympathy and condolences to the family and friends.

Hi guys, for those who are still searching for "Trances/Drones" 2CD (original Extreme edition from 1994),  I just noticed this eBay auction by a seller from Seattle, link:
