Milieu : A Warm Wooden Hollow....There are several tracks on this that are my personal all time favorite ambient tracks.

Loscil : First Narrows.....Out of my Loscil cds this gets the most spins

Alio Die & Lorenzo Montana : Holographic Codex....The first track sets the tone and the rest of the album never seemed to arrive. Muns de Etrah sounds like a real collaboration and the rest of the album comes over as dominant Alio Die.

Mathias Grassow & John Haughm : Aurae....Beautiful music but as a collaboration the sonic balance seems heavily weighted towards Grassow

Gregg Kowalsky : Through the Cardial Window....Had this cd for a year or so, listened and it did not register.  Now its on continuous play.  Sometimes we are just not ready yet .

I need to get my glasses checked, I read the title of this to be "vinyl is really black" LOL and yes still got loads of it myself, have the Styx one "Pieces of Eight" featured second full sleeve bottom shelf on the right :-)

I keep looking at the album cover and know it but could not place the band....Styx it is!

The Stones cover is good....their so young.  I held two of my favorite Rush albums....Permanent Waves & Moving Pictures, sure I have the cds but its not the same.

Yeah its silly expensive in some cases but most seemed to around $20 -$25 which is not cheap either.

Im going back to B&N soon just to look and touch...sounds sort of Kinky ???...dont have a turntable.

I have not been into my local Barnes and Noble in a while but when I do I always drift into the music department to see if I can find any ambient titles hidden in the New Age my surprise and shock I saw the main wall devoted to records.  Something I have not seen in maybe twenty years.  I know vinyl is growing but I was not aware that it was at this level. The selection was pretty decent, no ambient, not yet anyway and the records are expensive.....white album, bottom shelf in lower left corn of the picture...Pink Floyd, The Wall $59. These are all new releases not was so cool to actually hold The Wall in my hands.  I did have it once...seems a long time ago

Here's the Studio Dairy for 2015....

Studio picture of Taylor's modular used to create most of this music....

Thanks for all your support gentleman.....the interest in earlier releases like The Tide Pool of Memories being requested in physical format has inspired me and drone on's original words (more or less) from the Tide Pool release thread in 2012...."get this man a physical release".  I get there eventually.

drone on your Original Light cd will ship out tomorrow.

Thanks so much for the review Richard,

I enjoy reading how you transpose your sonic experience into very creative words and structures.  Your writing really does tell a story that is equal with the music you review and in my case you have shown me a way to look into the music I would not have been able to do otherwise.  :)

So Sorry to hear about Maxa.....I read your blog tribute to her.

I listened to the field recordings, the second one...waterfall and culvert has so much space and motion in it.

Hope you post more as you get out and record.  I enjoyed listening.

Computers, Internet and Technology / Re: Soundcloud and its alternatives

I use soundcloud just as you do Pete but for some reason its giving me are hard time.

I suppose Bandcamp can be used in a similar fashion these days to do the same thing.  I dont think Bandcamp embeds here, Ive never tried

Computers, Internet and Technology / Soundcloud and its alternatives
« on: October 07, 2015, 07:22:54 AM »
What is going on with soundcloud.......I can't  play anything, everywhere I go in it and whatever I try to do I get nowhere except to get me to sign up for "Go Pro".  This is what is really going on I feel. Because I have an account they are making it hard to navigate unless I upgrade.  I could be wrong. I dont use it that much to warrant a $55 yearly subscription.

Anyone else experience this and are there any alternatives in a similar format.

By the way I have know problem with money being made but something has change at soundcloud. Were they bought out recently?

I will try the app...thanks for the suggestion Pete.

Have to say the website seems impenetrable to me....everywhere I go Im just cut off or nothing happens and I am always ask to contribute. What does streams to my ears is rather mediocre. Seems rather sketchy to me. They need to be able to seduce a lot more.

Hi Mike....I definitely dont what to get personal so no need for judgement here.  The topic is the issue and its implications not those of us discussing them, so hope I did not come across that way.

For what it's worth, the process of filmmaking is very different compared to the finished product. The magic of post-production. Sorry if I'm stating the obvious, but it might help you understand why a parent would let their child work on such a film. What appears violent and gory is anything but while on set. In the case of the film you saw, they'd walk the child through the process numerous times. They would show how everything is fake, including the weapon in their hand (which would be made of hard foam). They would see where the fake blood comes from, and the crewmember who controls it. Doing all this takes away any brutality and realness, turning it sort of into a game instead.

I highly doubt the parents would let their child watch the finished film until they were older.

Out of curiosity, what was the name of the film?

Mike this is a helpful look behind the scenes but the tragedy is as I understand drone on for creating this thread....why are we even in this place that we would pretend that death is a game....a game for a child that has not even had much of a chance to experience the game of Life....Im using your word to illustrate a point, not going after you.  :)

Well playing devil's advocate, a lot of porn IS evil.   It's not just procreation, it's violent, misogynistic, garbage.  This is another topic altogether though and I'm not sure exactly how it fits with the topic I raised.

It has nothing to do with your topic per se other than to question and wonder how its ok to watch violent death and not sex.  Your post brought this to my mind.  I have heard people say that some extremely violent movies are entertaining yet extreme nudity within a movie is apparently disgusting. Im Simply illustrating a bigger point.  Its not just about kids though that is considerably more messed up.

As Mike explains that much is done to protect a child in such a movie one has to ask the question why....why do people watch, and its because people do watch that these movies continue to be made.  They make money.

Sorry for the side chain but you have brought up a very sensitive topic for me.

I try to stay away from all movies that are violent for violence sake.  Exceptions being historical & Si Fi movies.  Anything that involves children had better be in the class of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang"  still a favorite of mine.  Hollywood and the apparent censorship we have is ridiculous. How is it that we can watch the act of a child bludgeoning her mother to death with a sledgehammer as you describe it drone on but the act of procreation by consenting adults is porn and considered evil.
