It was really just yesterday....or so it seems that I watched a video of him standing in front of the Moog reissue of his modular system. Sad indeed.  Your here in a blink.....

Beautiful, graceful music from APK.......this cd had me from the first gentle sounds on track 1 and continued until the last piece that left me with a quiet smile.

Within this music laid in a subtle way are obscured rhythmic elements that are more suggestions that work to enhance the deep melodic structure than any marked time which peaked my interest on top of the beautiful timbres that had warmed my emotion.

The music put me in a "place" that the best of ambient music can and one that I will return to often!

Read my last couple posts.  Short version:  go to his website, email asking if they have Planetary original CD. 

Ah, understood....Thanks

244
Julio, did you read the previous posts?  You can get this for $17.50 total from Stearns site, if they have any left.


I did drone on but Im looking for a pressed cd not a cdr as I understand the current Streans version is or have I not been paying attention.

Planetary Unfolding was the main inspiration for me to get a small Serge modular system which this music was composed on.


245
Groove sent me a status on this.....in stock $22.49 + $9.70 shipping.  In the scheme of things this is a decent price but the shippings getting up there.....Im going to pass.

Thanks for writing this review. Ended up picking up the album digitally through Bandcamp. Lovely stuff.

Thanks cvac.....hope " A Tide Pool resonates with you  :)

While drift towards Andromeda I picked up this transmission of inter galactic jazz..... 8)

https://soundcloud.com/digitalvoices/patch-24?in=digitalvoices/sets/modular-musings

Patch notes : Plucked sounds come from Mutable Instruments Elements with one channel processed by Clouds and sequence by Rene. High pitch hissing stardust comes from Benjolin filter by Twin Peaks and passed through MN Echophone  and Erbeverb.  Low end rumbles comes from Make Noises Phonogene..... lots of CV from random generators, lfos, gates and triggers.  This is a no hands on patch completely self generated.

Enjoy

A very good friend of mine wrote these words to me in an email after listening to these modular soundscapes...


I feel you like a galaxy explorer, traveling alone on its spaceship, crossing various dimensions for the first time.


Very poetic.  I'd go further and say you're creating your own universe.

Good words Forrest.  There is a huge sense of discovery involved in this sort of music making and the most amount of immediate learning that seems to exist at the same time.  I feel like I have really not listened to music in the same way as I do when creating on the modular. 

Certainly this is new territory so that can add excitement and stimulate enthusiasm to journey further.

Many years ago, I had the choice of buying a motor bike and becoming a hells angel or buying a synthesizer (roland 100 modular).

I decided I could go many places on a motorbike, but anywhere I wanted on a synth.... 8)

Beautiful put Seren

One has to find the appropriate time and moment to immerse himself in this listening.
The sounds are really amazing and I can easily visualize yourself while in the creation process.
I feel you like a galaxy explorer, traveling alone on its spaceship, crossing various dimensions for the first time.
 
I think we actually miss a lot of space video footage where your music would fit.
 
I also can feel the joy you have while exploring.
 
Musically wise, the tracks I listened, there were deep sounds quite hypnotizing that I liked very much with often a little persisting noise that distracted me from the trance.
I understand life and universes are not all about sweet and pleasant encounters but instead populated by all kind of energies including the most life threatening ones and what you creates is more about true reality than just a polarized-one-side-of-the-creation-only reflection.
 
You will continue to familiarize with your spaceship and discover more and more of it's possibilities although you may never completely master the beast to the point of becoming a virtuoso as this kind of spaceship go probably further than what human can perceive and cope with. That's their beauty.

Really enjoyed the quick spin I had over at Bandcamp.....love the palette on this.  Looking forward to a deeper listening when the CD arrives!

Have to do with modulars.....this, the eurorack version.  A quick sequence of videos going into it and a more in depth look at the end. Loving this.

Really like this performance from Mr. Richard Devine.....a true master, blending all the chaos that modulars can conger up with a solid sense of musicality.

I just can't get beyond all the wires!!!  There is no interface left.   ;)

I know its crazy.....I saw a video recently of a set he did in Europe somewhere with 2 small cases of modules that were patched to create 8 different tracks/songs....no small feat.  The man is a wizard. His early work I remember from around 2004 was pure glitch and although interesting was not my cup of tea but this has evolved so much.

I just "listened" to this with the sound turned off and still enjoyed it.  ;D

Scott Im going to give that a view without the sound...the colours and lights are wonderful.

For the well being of this thread I feel its a good thing to show modular performances rather than a 30 minute tutorial on the Steady State Fate Ultra Random Analog, a module that I have and is an amazing random generator that I am still learning about....watching this would put most people to sleep. 

I hope anyone could come here and hopefully be amazed, curious and fascinated.

As Rex Probe, the man behind STS and the manufacturer of the Serge Modular system once said to me...."the modular synthesizer is an amusement park for electrons".... I feel we are so fortunate today to be able to entertain them because in their joy they give so much back.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: CD Shipping costs.
« on: February 13, 2016, 07:17:59 AM »
This came in my email from 12k yesterday......

New International Shipping Rates

Some of you may have noticed that in January prices on international shipping for CDs and vinyl from our shops jumped dramatically. Frustratingly, on January 17th the US Postal Service (USPS) flat-out doubled the rates for international shipping. Overnight. Just like that.

A single CD went from $6.55 shipping to almost $13.00. Sadly, we had no option but to follow along and watch as the USPS continued to make running small businesses more and more difficult. However, the very thin silver lining of these new prices is that due to the rate scaling it costs as much to ship one CD as it does 4 CDs.

As a result, we have implemented a flat-rate of $12.50 on all CD orders, no matter how many you order. 1 CD still costs $12.50 to ship, but so does 5, or 10, or 45... all a flat rate of $12.50 from us.

While single-CD shipping is still somewhat pricey, we hope that with the ordering of multiple items the pain of postage is somewhat lessened.

In a climate where labels struggle to to pursue the importance of physical product, artwork and music ownership it is difficult to be forced these new rates and rules that make this pursuit all the more difficult.

12k thanks you for your tireless support over the years that has allowed us to keep exploring, discovering and releasing beautiful and innovate music



Not so sure about this silver lining as I shipped 10 cd's to Europe a few weeks back that cost me $20.....might have had something to do with the packaging I shipped them in or the post office pulled one on me >:(
