Hey thanks Thomas, but I'm an eager Treetrunk anyway, so I have those releases.
The mentioned Tange stuff could also fit into your Constant series.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Any opinions on TANGE ?
« on: October 25, 2011, 05:36:49 AM »
Hi, I recently fell in love with the album "A Tub Full of Tange" released on Earth Mantra netlabel. It's a compilation of live performances by Tange on Stillstream radio. 11 hours of nice ambient music. I listen to it when I prepare my history lessons, it's so great if I need solace after a day full of stress.
It's become my favourite ambient album. But in fact, is this ambient or drone ? Or both ? ;)

I guess I arrived too late :(

Or does anyone know a place where I can still get the CDR, not the MP3 ?

I do agree. Great packaging, but the music is quite a rip-off for me. 35 for that sh** was way too much.

I paid $55 for this album.  There was little to no information, only that it was limited to 100 copies--pressed CD, in hardbound book-style digipak.  Great packaging, I have to admit.  The sound samples on the website were excellent.  Only problem is (which I was not aware of), 54 minutes of this 60 minute CD is one repeating loop, which sounds like a cue ball breaking in a game of pool.  (They should've called it "Pool Room"?)  There's even a round ball on the cover artwork that coulud be a cue ball.  Is this a hint??? Well OK, actually in the loop there is a cool low-drone and cicadas sounds, so it isn't just the cueball.  The 6 minutes of actual music is EXCELLENT! Some great steel cello stuff like on the "Wouivre" CD, and some KW keyboard drones.  But these tracks are like only two minutes apiece.  Then they fade out and it's back to somebody playing pool for 30 minutes.  I think the cueball stuff would've been cool as a 10-min. opener and/or closer, but 54 minutes of it is a bit much.  Can you medidate to this album?  I don't know, I'll have to try it out.  8)

Ordered mine today :)
Yes we definitely need more reissues of Mathias Grassow. There is plenty of stuff that was only available on CDRs without artwork...

That's great news. I really enjoyed the first two dreamings. I love such longform music

There seems to be a rerelease of Mathias Grassow's Sky 2xCDr on one CD:

Seems like an obscure label to me. Does anyone have any info about it ?

A lot of great music so far, but this has been for me the best of 2011 in Ambient:

El Hadra - Ornaments
Phillip Wilkerson Complex Silence 15 (on the Treetrunk netlabel) -> by the way a nice netlabel, just like Earth Mantra with tons of great free music, even too much good music.
Stephan Mathieu - A Static Place

Being in a quiet place where the sound of human beings is either absent or minimal.

I agree, thumbs up

I have The Dream Circle in two editions too, but only because I found the Digipak after already owning the standard edition. Generally I sell the standard editions afterwards unless of course it has bonus tracks or abonus CD.

Recent purchase:

Robert Henke - Indigo_Transform
from mr. headonist  8)
well it's still underway...

Yes, collector reflex, just the same with me, I have both editions of "Early Man" in my collection... :)

Steve Roach - Early Man CD

Very nice, but why didn't you go for the 2CD version, it has a lot more to offer even if the artwork with jewel case is more generic

If you know Ishq you may be used to listening to his music with some kind of beat included or some rhythmic element. His latest album called "Skyspaces" is totally droney. And on top of that very etheric in the vein of Steve Roach's First Light. Recommended from headonist!

I agree, but I recommend their whole discography. Amazing band

I would probably have gotten it, if it weren't for the fact that I already have all three releases in the Castle series as individual releases.

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...
