Hi friends,

greetings from Slovakia!!! To all those interested in Strom Noir "luvyoo" CD, get in touch with Slovak label Ambsine Records (www.ambsine.sk). The page is written in Slovak, but go directly to their CD Shop and you will see note in English with e-mail contact: orders@ambsine.sk. Payments available via paypal. I will ask Vlado of Ambsine Records to post more news on his label, projects and releases in the coming days. Enjoy it!!!

All the best.

I finally found "Dynamic Stillness" 2CD in my mailbox yesterday. Don't have too many words, just absolutely amazing, both musically and visually. I am proud to be an owner of this masterpiece!!!

Hi Loren,

unfortunately, I didn't have any detailed or official informations on this tribute before it was organized. Otherwise I would post it on this forum as soon as possible. I live in Central Europe and sometime the communication channels with Mexico are very slow. Also fluency of Spanish would be more helpful. I think many other artists would like to participate and pay tribute to this extraordinary person and musician. At this moment I don't know any other way to see the pictures from this event. But I will ask Julio Cesar, maybe he can e-mail you all the pics.

All the best and have a nice time.

Richard

This is extremely terrible and sad news, can't believe what happened to this great person and musician... My sympathy and condolences to the family and friends. Thank you for the wonderful music and friendship, Jorge. We will miss you and you will always live in your innovative music. Rest in peace. Saludos y abraxas, amigo.

I am writing these lines with tears in my eyes and same like Steve, listening to their magics "Gone From Here" in honor to Jorge. I was talking to Jorge three weeks ago, he was busy with new projects and ideas, he was planning to go to Europe to  Berlin this April and May to work with Peter Avar, recording & mixing enginner of Radio Berlin-Brandenburg, who was Jorge's collaborator on various soundscape CDs like "Michoacan: un paisaje sonoro" or "Ciudad de Mexico Y Chiapas: dos paisajes sonoros". Jorge was also thinking about the idea of doing some live performances while in Europe.

Everything and Nothing / Re: It's a new year... let's introduce ourselves
« on: February 05, 2009, 05:05:49 PM »
Dear friends,

my name is Richard Gurtler and I am saying hello to you from Bratislava in Slovak Republic, Europe!!! I am quite new to this forum (member since August 2008), but nevertheless I would like to introduce myself. I am turning in four days 43 years and I am absolutely fascinated by ambient music. I have been listening to the electronic music since 1983, but during these early years I was into other genres, like electro-industrial, ebm... Since 1992 to 1995 I was also one of the publishers and reviewers of English written electrozine called Crewzine and until 1998 I was running also a small mail-order catalogue with related music. The turning point came around 1995 when I have discovered through Fathom/HoS and Projekt labels names like Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Michael Stearns and Vidna Obmana. My search was finally over!!!

In my real life, I live since 1996 with my lovely girlfriend Simona together with her son Daniel (21 years old) and her daughter Veronika (17 years old). We know each other since our high school years. During the season (from March till December) I work as service technician for irrigation lawn sprinkler systems. During the winter time I have part-time job in one of Bratislava's theatres (Studio L&S) where I work as podium technician (building the scenes...) plus some occasional work with scanning lights. Simona works as a teacher (2nd grade in elementary school). We enjoy sporting activities (especially inline and ice skating), watching sports, hiking, taking photographs of nature, good food and good beer (Belgian Leffe Brune is our top fave...). We live in Bratislava, the capital city of Slovak Republic in Central Europe, which used to be a part of former CzechoSlovakia (split up in 1993).

Back to ambient music. Unfortunately, during the years 1999-2007 I was totally out of music. My family, smaller kids (very serious collecting of hockey cards with my son Daniel), my work, some sporting activities (active inline speedskating for four seasons), very expensive US dollar here in Slovakia at the end of the 90's, broken CD player and discman... all this took me out of music completely. No ambient music at all... It took me almost 10 years to return and re-explore magnificent sonic worlds of ambient music. I was back again in the good old days and stronger than ever. So I am now a great fan of this music, big collector of CDs and I am again in contact with many really nice people within this musical genre, including some of you from this Hypnos forum. Hello to Mike & Lena of Hypnos, Bill Binkelman, Jeff Pearce..., it's my great pleasure to be in contact with all of you!!!

When mentioning Mike & Lena, I also want to express my big thanks to both of you for doing great job with Hypnos and all related projects and activities. Thank you for putting together this community and please keep on going!!!

Okay my friends, all the best, have a wonderful time and enjoy the music!!!


With friendly greetings, Richard
