Robert Rich : Trances & Drones.  Hypnos   This music is new to me and most likely it is very familiar to most here so I wont go into it much other than to say what took me so long and what a pillar of ambient electronic music it is.  Kudos to Hypnos for releasing this in one of the finest packaging designs I can remember.  I sat with headphones reading the liner notes which brought me back to the days of listening to music with vinyl covers in hand.  Really insightful words from M.Griffin included in the notes.   


A great release from 12k indeed......agree with Chris, you expressed the music in words very well.

Nice story Chris.....most of my family and friends have no idea what ambient music is,  sounds like film music is the usual response.  Im always forcing it on them.  It is encouraging when some die hard country music folk I know actual come around and say this is not my kind of music but it is relaxing and helps my road rage when Im driving......little steps. :)

Thanks again Chris.....really appreciate it!

music works so well with the visuals.....heard this music before but never quite registered until now.  Thanks for the additional post!

As a musician bandcamp is the only place my music is available. Its so simple to create an identity of ones own underneath the huge umbrella that bandcamp is.  AS a music lover it is the first place I go to buy music.  Slowly more established labels such as Projekt for example are using Bandcamp for their downloads.  This is encouraging.

Downloading from Bandcamp the Lithea, Hypersona & Hollow Triptych music.....really looking forward to exploring this music.  You put a lot of care into the production.  Beautiful artwork and design and what looks like really well made packaging, especially the vinyl  Glad this thread popped up from the past!

I have been looking to make an upgrade to my Adobe CS4 software and discovered that CS6 is the last "creative suite" series to be released.  It is now Adobe Creative Cloud,  as in Photoshop CC. In short Adobe has become a subscription service.  I actually did upgrade to Photoshop CC as I do use this a lot for processing photographs.  I do not use Illustrator and Indesign except for cd artwork production so an upgrade to the full suite was not called for.  Unfortunately there is no upgrade path from CS4 to CS6 or I might have gone that route.  This is not the case with the creative cloud.  I have Photoshop CC installed in my laptop for $9.99 a month with a one year commitment.  This is the special price for registered CS3 - CS5 users.  I believe Photoshop would be $19.99 for first time users. $29.99 would get me the entire Adobe collection.  Here is the link for those interested

Makes sense to me for the creative professional who spends much of the day design etc.....For my self, lets see how it goes.  I like the idea that one will always be working with software that is at the peak of its development that is until something better(more effective) is created and then these new apps are freely available as part of the subscription. 

This delivery format is not new....I downloaded Logic 9 from iTunes not so long ago.  Imagine if Native Instruments made their soft synths available on a subscription basis.  It would not make sense if a software company did not continue to develop their software.  Why keep paying for the same thing, better to buy it one time.

Another approach and not one Ive seen yet would be to use the software on a case by case basis...I guess rent would be the word, as a pro photographer might rent a big telephoto lens fort a special job but may not want to drop $5k on lens that does not get much use.

Curious to see how this will develop and see who follows Adobe.

Always love to look at all the artwork.....nice surprise to see my own music on your server screen.  Thank you!

Really like the format of your web page Jeff.....everything accessible on one screen.  Enjoying your experiments that you have posted and linked.  Good to hear some sweet distortion on guitar, the quality is just right! 

That is the jackpot......lots of bowl drones.  I prefer the tracks where the performance is lost in deep reverb/fx   Bowls recorded straight, in a traditional sense, pale next to the actual performance of bowls played live. Their special quality is best when physically experienced.  That being said, singing bowl "shows" are not common.

Want to thank the posters in this "now playing" thread that actually direct link to where the music can be heard & purchased.  Makes it so easy to hear where you are at and really helps in promoting what you like.  Thanks

Thanks for post this Anthony.....perhaps one of the best interviews of Eno Ive seen.  Every time I think i have heard all that can be said by him, he is able to add fresh insight into our world from his perspective.  I hope that one day a collected writings or something is made to archive this mans thinking.  We have the recordings and perhaps that is enough yet his verbally express thought is so inspiring and timeless to my way of feeling/thinking.

Here's 2 more performances well worth posting.

What one man can do with acoustic instruments and a looper.....and singing bowls to open the performance!

I have not really listen to Michael Strearns much over the years though Planetary unfolding it a favorite.....this is an incredible performance.

Just want to let forum members know that Harry Dibrell sent me one of his microphones to try and get my feet wet so to speak before I commit to purchasing one or two.  It is a beautiful thing when we support each other here and really makes this a community in the true sense.....Thanks Harry!
