Each to their own.  We all have our passions...  thankfully the internet brought us ambient lovers from all over the world together to talk endlessly about what we're passionate about. 

I got a chance to listen to this in depth and it is freaking good.  It's jazz - but still with an ambient / atmospheric feel to it - but primarily jazz.  I recommend giving it a listen on bandcamp streaming and see if you like it.  I love live playing - and this is some really good live playing.

I'll point Ran Kirlian to this thread and see if he has any thoughts.  He did the last or close to last collab with Gigi.

Tomas - you can just call me John... no need to use my full title.  ;-)

Great to see you Matthew! Always enjoyed your music!

I find 'Lost in Translation' a very ambient  - let it wash over you type of movie.  As is, and I'm sure I'm alone in thinking this...  'Gosford Park'.  Both just kind of 'wash over me' and feel ambient.

Oh-  I remember this... good stuff!

playing Periskop again... from his 40 album release...  massively amazing stuff.  I still haven't heard all 40 - many I've heard over and over because I love them and just don't move on.  Discovering some of the others in more depth.

Yep - they're all free.  It's Danny Kreutzfeldt who's released on APK's label a couple times under earlier names.

So far - I've found only 2 out of the 40 that didn't connect with me.  I've probably heard 30 of them so far.

Here's what I wrote about this one on my facebook page:

Tree of Life by Loren Nerell and Mark Seelig is hands down one of the best ambient albums I've heard in a long time. I've been fortunate to hear early versions and the final master before release... so I've heard this many times over the last few months.

The album is truly a "journey" - it starts slow and minimal - gorgeous hints of percussion, drones and textural background. Mark Seelig plays a jaw dropping flute line through much of the first half of the album. The blending of the flute with the backdrop is so dead on perfect.

The percussion later builds into a section where the percussion and rhythm comes to the forefront. Recorded partially in a group setting when Mark and family from Germany were visiting Loren in California.

And then... we hit the moment where the percussion comes to a sudden stop, and we drop into the brilliant gamelan playing by Loren Nerell. Wow. Simply... wow. So deliciously tasteful.

Highly, highly recommended.

I agree with Loren and Julio...  best to bring it up in a gentle manner.  Something like hey I feel like we're being distant lately is there something I did to offend?

went through a massive cd ripping phase where i added at least 3 or 4 days of music to my itunes...  fun to revisit cd's I haven't heard in 4 years or more. 

recent spins...  deepchord, yagya, maurizio

I'm more of an ipad player these days... currently hooked on Guardian Cross... basically a collectable card game thing from Square Enix.

Just played through Monument Valley - wow - now that is spectacular... you're essentially playing MC Escher drawings - some truly beautiful moments throughout...  excellent ... although really short.   Still - as a game - a work of art.

I'm looking forward to hearing this!

I'm enjoying Leverage...  not earth shattering - but Ocean's 11 meets Alias on a neatly wrapped up every episode scale.
