I think I could make do with that three-panel Serge quite as well :).


Thanks, much appreciated :).

I´ve already ordered that Lamborghini Murcielago.


Thanks, Scott :). Yes, Markus is a great guy. Probably the only one I take advice from ;).

BTW, here´s the first review of the album written by Bert Strolenberg / Sonic Immersion (hartstikke bedankt, Bert!):

Yeah, lots and lots of potential hit singles.


Hi all,

I´m delighted to officially announce the release of the new collaborative album Markus Reuter and I created in collaboration. "lament" was recorded during a very inspired session at my place in the summer of 2010. It took a little while to work out a release, and I´m very happy to have it out on Swedish label Gterma, run by Johan Rehn.

"lament" is made up of seven tracks altogether, ranging from three to twenty-three minutes in length. We consider this album a successor to the 2007 album "ceasing to exist", and I´m sure there are quite as many potential hit singles on it as well.

The longest track "and all which is not" is classic Fripp/Eno with loads of heavily processed Touch Guitar, VCS-3, and loops. The other tracks range from spooky horror sci-fi scenarios to ethereal ambient textural work. Certainly nothing for the faint at heart, I guess.

For more info, you can get in touch with Johan directly:

Enjoy (or not),

"Maaaat-lock!" (Grampa Simpson)


We need to find you some really exciting (as opposed to boring) ambient music!  ;)

Oh yes, that would be highly appreciated!  :-*


Mr. Negative is back!!  ;D

I've read "Stealth" is samples of a stealth bomber processed into an ambient album.  That's sounds pretty boring!!

Mr. Honest, if you please 8).

Intriguing concept, definitely.

Mr. Sarcasm is off. Over and out.


I don´t know this one but if it´s in the same vein as "Nostromo", it must count as one of the most boring ambient albums ever. This is the type of (Dark) Ambient I do not like and which I find totally useless.

But that´s only me, of course.

"Music for Airports" is an interesting title?  :o

Also, that's "heresy" what you said about "Black Stars"!!!  :P

Actually, I always thought ['ramp] was the most highly overrated group no one's ever heard of!  ;)

Nice to see you again here, Stephen.  :)

Thanks for the warm welcome! Feels like coming home  ;D.

['ramp] overrated? It definitely sucks big time. And so do I, but who cares?

Heresy!!! But, yeah.

Yes, Lustmord... agreed.    ;)

Much of Brian´s stuff is quite overrated, especially "Black Stars". I found this utterly boring. His latest albums were so boring I didn´t listen to them until the end.

Thomas Köner also has some brilliant stuff out, but also quite boring albums as well ("Daikan" comes to mind).

Eno´s "Music for Airports" is nowhere near as interesting as  its title suggests.

40 US$ is a decent price. Unfortunately, any type of service documentation for these Kawais is a bit difficult to come by.

Do you know the Analogue Heaven mailinglist? This is the place to be for all things analogue and "vintage".

Have you checked the internal battery for leakage?
Have you checked the power supply rails for the correct voltages?
Have you checked lose connectors inside (ribbon cables, reseating ICs if socketed -- make sure you don´t touch them without having grounded yourself first, they hate static electricity)?

Just some ideas.

Very sad.

But his art will remain.

Got a copy of "Oblivion" but "Halo" is still on my wishlist. Anybody?


Hi all,

as some of you might have overheard already, the new official ['ramp] album will be due for release on 21st December 2011. It was actually scheduled for 1st December, but unfortunately, there were some problems with the pressing plant -- and these had to be sorted out first.

"return" will be a return to where ['ramp] started in 1996/97, and I guess it has become the most "analogue-sounding" album since the release of "Nodular" and "frozen radios". There will be two sections on the album, called "astral disaster" and "return" respectively, each running beyond the 30 minutes mark. For some impressions please click here:

Like its predecessor "steel and steam" (which I´m slowly, but steadily running out of stock of), "return" will be available in a limited edition of 300 hand-numbered copies. I do not intend to make it available as a digital download.

If interested, please feel free to send me an email (stephen at parsick dot com) and have me reserve a copy for you in advance. Please bear in mind that shipping rates will be the same for up to four albums, and I support group purchases (postage will be worked out individually then, depending on the weight of the shipment).

Thanks for your time,

I'm the same way--it doesn't exist if it's not on CD (guess I won't be buying your new download, he he).

Thanks for the hint but I do not buy downloads. I want CDs.

Especially "Halo" since I had the pleasure of listening to the title track in Mark´s living-room before the album was actually released.

Hi all,

I´m looking for copies of Redshift´s "Halo" and "Oblivion" albums. Missed out on buying these when they came out as I was too broke to buy CDs back then. If you happen to have a spare copy you´d like to part with, please let me know.

Hi all,

if you´re tired of waiting for the next official ['ramp] album "return", you might like to spend your time on the new download-only EP "Electric Karma":

Yamaha CS80, electronic tabla, loop devices, ARP Sequencer, plus some other embellishments (ARP 2600, Roland VP-330, Prophet VS).

Enjoy (or not),
