I will give it another call here for some more contributions!

So Tomas...a week has passed......what was the purpose of this? Did it answer anything for you?
I was under the impression, that it was high frequency loss that came with age / over-exposure to loud sound over time.
On a side note:
Iīve noticed the most complains about technical issues of other music is coming from members clearly being newbie (with no references at all in music business). Of course, having enough money in today allows anyone to own the "right and respected gear" but unfortunately it needs a bit more than just owning or talking theoretical about it
Well put Tomas.....Im open to all sorts of opinions, hopefully they are humble especially online where you need to back off a fair bit compared to normal one on one dialogue.
Gear means absolutely nothing when in the hands of a master. Shall I bring up the master Samurai story with and inferior Katana sword in his hand and the poorly trainer opponent standing before him. The sword does not matter. The picture is clear.
Im somewhat embarrassed that I have become involved in this silly bass debate, though it is good to see ambient musicians and ambient music lovers (thats pretty sexy) coming together in a single though diverse thread.
If steve roach relased shirts for every album I would probably be more likely to buy the shirt then the actual cd.
I don't have time to give this a really good listen (nor provide the details you're asking for). Overall, I think it sounds fine, but if this was something I was mixing/mastering, the two things I'd change:
- The kick is a little mushy. This is likely by design though.
- The hihat sound that is brought in front and centre starting at 3:20 quickly grates my ears, especially when its accompanied by another at 3:54.
And now back to our regular programming
Could be my favorite Sakamoto collaboration.....the Fennesz treatments work so well with the piano. More experimental than Sakamoto & Willets excellent Ancient Future but in a very good way and more accessible than their 12k release Ocean Fire. Also theres an element in Sakamoto's piano that is reminiscent for me of his film music adding a melodic smoothness to the Fennesz glitch.
Got my cd from Amoeba in San Francisco, had a hard time finding it..... flac is available from Boomkat http://boomkat.com/cds/33897-fennesz-sakamoto-cendre
I was shocked when Tomas said that he wont send the CD becourse I live in Ukraine. I always was ordering all the cds and releases from Musical Philosophy all this time. Im very big fan of ambient music and now its a shame that the artists mix the political situation with music tastes and with music worlds(( Im really dissapointed.. I have no idea how to get now a new cd and also forthcoming also((( shit
You should realise that being 'direct' on forums can come across as being rude. In the 'real world', I am very direct myself (and outspoken), so I try to be more circumspect online.
The point still holds, a forum member who contributed a lot over the years has decided not to be a part of things anymore (for whatever reason) and that's a shame.
...and my guess is his reason for disappearing without telling us is he probably didn't want to embarrass you.
Greetings Tomas :-)
I was more surprised by his response to those paintings thinking they were some kind of "work of a genius" and the fact that he couldn't see that they were all the same :-)
