Now Playing / Re: Currently listening, part 1

One of the best produced tracks (arrangement, groove, used sounds, voice) i´ve heard for a long time - amazing middle break!....luckely i´m not a native english speaker so I don´t have to bother about the stupid lyrics  ;D

OUT NOW ::  Nautic Depths - Elsewhere I (Musical Philosophy)

Comes as Luxus Digipak



"Elsewhere I" is the deepest and most colourful album by Nautic Depths so far. As the title suggests, it explores and dives into those places any listener of Ambient Music very likely knew about. A feeling of moving out of reality and physical focus with a sense of being "Elsewhere" - like an emotional journey to known, but also new and free places. "Elsewhere I" (followed by Part II later) is particularly inspired by these mind-based territories we can only reach through our imagination...

(from 2012) long before the current NSA issue:

29C3 Panel: Jesselyn Radack, Thomas Drake, William Binney on whistleblowing and surveillance


Well....

I think the title track (only until minute 6:00) has a nice essence but lacks a lot of mixing.

For my taste toooooooo noisy in the upper mid/high range, but maybe thats what you are looking for. I can imagine cutting via EQ specific frequencies can improve the track massively.

PS: I hope APK (the "noise man") don´t read this post ;D

I don't mind ambient noise in general - however I live on a main and busy road and somehow woosh, wooosh, woooosh of traffic does not fit in with gently meditative bowl sounds....

Streets of Himalaya?

Small Addition...

I worked with the Neumann´s in the past in several recording conditions too:

IMO they are overpriced for all "non-pop music", especially as we use in "our" genre anyway a lot of effects, reverb etc. From my experiences the Neumann´s are a touch more detailed and presence than the Rode but for me it wasn´t worth to spend so much money for it.

Hi Julio,

i own both and can recommend these 2 mics (both are matched pairs)

http://www.thomann.de/gb/oktava_mk_01201_mkiimatched_pair.htm

http://www.thomann.de/gb/rode_nt_5.htm

Rode has a more "open/detailed" sound while the Octava is extremely warm and round (but less detailed in the high end range, so might be a bit restricted if you plan to record other sources with a lot of high end frequencies in the future too). But for low and mid key instruments like Cello, Viola, Bowls and Voice it is hard to bet especially for this price! Though, not sure if you can get it in Canada or USA...

Tomas

Everything and Nothing / Re: CDbaby vs TuneCore?
« on: April 24, 2013, 04:22:32 PM »
question I have paid for a single on CDBaby but never listed it and I bought a bar code. can I use that one barOde deover and over again for different albums?

No, you can´t...it´s only for this specific item.

212
I have noticed on some recent purchases the practice of printing inner booklet liner notes in German.  Two that come to mind are Mathias Grassow "Wisdom of Fate" on Swedish Gterma label and Klaus Schulze "Shadowlands" on SPV.  Any theories on why the text wouldn't be translated into English?

Möglicherweise gibt es dazu keine Theorie, sondern ist lediglich eine Entscheidung des Künstlers. Und ausserdem - warum sollte oder muss alles auch in Englisch geschrieben sein?

Great work Tomas.....had to listen without looking at the screen to get a sense of the music by itself because the actual music merges so well with the visuals and creates the mood while supporting the drama......The key elements to a good film score
     
Hope the movie makes it over the atlantic to us!

Hello Julio,

many thanks for your appreciation!

I do agree that the pictures and the music merges well - it was a very interesting experience for me too that finally (as a viewer) you won´t anymore separate pictures and music....imo it feels like "one" by complementing each other.

Cheers,
Tomas

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Korg MS20 remake
« on: February 22, 2013, 02:38:43 PM »
Interesting articles.  Though the MS-20 is a neat machine, I wouldn't have thought there would be a demand for a monophonic synth these days, especially when polyphony seems to be almost a given with software synths.

Thought the same, but it seems like just those key words "analog" and "MS 20" creates excitement - good for Korg though  ;D

217
Maybe i´m alone with this opinion....never mind, but is this a "review"?

Lets be realistic...

- The writer mention who is behind the release
- Next he speaks very vaguely about the content and refers to some well know artists in this genre.
- Very soon we reach "All in all..." already

Sorry, but all of this could be also a text of a press release by the artist.

I´m just wondering, what is the value of something called "review" if it doesn´t go into depths or more detailed aspects? As an interested person for new/other music and/or artists, really, I can´t get much information out of this review.

For instance:

 "The ethereal and the atmospheric "shake hands" throughout the single tracks, evoking similar imaginary spheres and rich emotions as found on certain Robert Roach and Steve Roach releases"

More or less a standard phrase....i think some reviewers makes their life a bit too easy in today.

Cheers,
Tomas
