Robert Davies - Woodland Alcoves

Finally got around to listening to this and I'm enjoying it.

That's beautiful gear but also a beautiful room. (off topic?)

Agreed.

eternell - Kalimba Ambience

https://eternell.bandcamp.com/album/kalimba-ambience

Something I discovered earlier this evening. Great stuff.

This is a nice find! I poked around a bit and discovered that this is a side project of Ludvig Cimbrelius (aka Purl). There are a lot of great releases hosted on his bandcamp site. I'm enjoying the Surr - Asparna at the moment. https://eternell.bandcamp.com/album/surr-asparna

That's another great find. I like the organic sound that it has.

To be fair, Ekstatis wasn't even that bad in this thread but I almost feel like he and Cosmic Fabric are coordinating with each other at times.

The banging on rocks line reminds me of the fact that there is an album made with nothing but stones:

Don't hate the rocks! :P

It's very little to do with equipment, studios or whatever - it's the desire for self expression, that is paramount.

Man, why don't you mix then with some desktop pc speakers and the built in soundcard in your pc?


Works pretty well for me. ;D

Well said.

That's how I come up with my sounds: by trying to make them. I have some ideas in my head but I don't get too obsessed with trying to create them.

Celer - Relief and Altruism

https://celer.bandcamp.com/album/relief-and-altruism

IDK how many Celer fans we have here, but I love Celer. Extremely prolific and one of the most distinct ambient projects going today.

Motives For Recycling is excellent from start to finish. The Shifts Recycling isn't as good IMO. It's not quite ambient enough for me, particularly the first disc.

Asmus Tietchens' work is pretty abrasive and not for everyone, and that was their main sound source for those albums.

Thanks for the thumbs up on the music.

I also like that I can't remember how made some of the sounds, so they are unique to the album as i can't reproduce them.

That happens to me quite a bit too.

I can't think of any bad ambient music that's not cheesy new age stuff.

I was listening to the new album yesterday or the day before and I liked it. I like the fact that you used acoustic sources only.

Opening-Collection 1  -5 tracks from Databloem/APK. The original VA compilation of this series and still the best.CD


Great to be reminded of this one. The very first Databloem release 12 years ago, when Dennis Knopper and I started the label, later adding Dataobscura, and years later going our own ways ... Dennis (in Holland) turning Databloem into the excellent general electro-ambient store that we know today.
This album is unfortunately no longer available:

Wow, I didn't know that you helped found Databloem.

Maeror Tri - The A.V.E. - Tapes/Live In Nevers

https://zhelezobeton.bandcamp.com/album/the-a-v-e-tapes-live-in-nevers

I didn't know this existed until recently. Cool stuff. I like ambient industrial music.

My new album is here. It's another change in sound for me. I hope everyone likes it.
