I have CDR's I bought over 10 years ago and not a single one has gone bad.  Besides, doesn't everyone backup their music electronically now?  Even my LP's have been ripped to my computer just in case...

Also, as another artist that self-releases and sells less than 100 CD's per release, CDR is my only reasonable option, even then, after paying an artist, the cost of manufacturing, proofs, etc.... I'm lucky to break even on a per-disc basis.

mulm - the end of greatness
(maybe the best i've heard on Cyclic..)

Excellent album, just listened to it the other night.  The first 2 songs are especially awesome.

I really liked your post on mixing with headphones.  I do this almost exclusively for the same reasons (when I'm doing ambient music), I just can't seem to get absorbed in what I'm doing without them.  It's nice to know I'm not the only one. "Why I create ambient music" was nice too, I wish I was able to work on material full time.   ;D

Excellent news!  I really enjoyed the last 3 releases, and this one sounds great as well.

Hard to say, at the Shop I work at we do what's called an "AVR test" which shows the cranking power of the battery, measures alternator output, and measures the draw from the starter.   If the battery cranking power is less than 50% of new, and the other two components pass, then the battery automatically fails.  The dealer might have been lazy, or didn't want to pay out a warranty....

I'm always shocked by how good Robert Davies music is, he does drone better than anyone else I think.

This release seems to be no different!  Can't wait.

To be honest I've never been able to tell the difference between a LAME Encoded Mp3 @ 320kbps and CD or Flac....  Anything lower than 320kbps and the difference is (to me) obvious, especially cymbals on a drum track.

I've been on a bit of a Dataobscura binge recently...

The Circular Ruins - Invisible Cities ---> In my opinion one of APK's finest moments, I really like how the field recordings were integrated on this one.  Pretty minimal in instrumentation and movement, which I always like.

APK & Tomas Weiss - Distant Shadows ---> Quite possibly one of the best ambient albums I heard all year, nice artwork too.

Nunc Stans - We leave Without Speaking ---> Nice long form piece, nice to listen to in the dark.

Machinarium OST ---> Soundtrack to a PC game, it's a little short, but it's great, especially the song "By the wall".  Cool game too.

Jim: looking in to ordering that Bass Communion myself, as it's the only one of Wilson's side projects I like (not a PT fan, or care much for anything else he records as).

Heresy!!!  All kidding aside, Cenotaph is really great, SW says its a sequel to Ghosts on Magnetic Tape, but it's quite different.  It sounds old, and actually has a rhythm element to it, I really liked it.


with Broken Harbor :: Gramophone Transmissions lined up next

Funny you should mention that because I was I was sampling a bunch of APK albums last night on the dataobscura website!  ;D

Robert Davies - "Pond"
Northaunt - "Horizons"
Devin Townsend - "Deconstruction" (obviously not ambient, but I've always appreciated his production style on metal releases, plus the music on this release is amazing.)

The artwork issues have been (mostly) resolved and CD's are shipping monday.  Thank you for your patience while I sorted this out!
