Aidan Baker- Aneira

It's amazing that his only sound source was a 12 string guitar.

Also, I redesigned my Bandcamp page. I wasn't sure if it was worth its topic but I think everyone should find it more aesthetically pleasing. Feel free to tell me what you guys think of it.

Vidna Obmana- The Surreal Sanctuary

The exotic instrumentation really adds to the atmosphere. Great stuff.

Your synth collection is fantastic and so is your other stuff. Just get a DAW and figure out whichever way you want to hook up your synths to your computer, and you'll be set.

Honestly, your setup is already better than mine. I don't even have a hardware synth.

Billow Observatory - Billow Observatory
Drifting, floating ambient, based largely on processed guitar. Expansive and beautiful.

Buy vinyl or digital or simply give it a listen: https://felte.bandcamp.com/album/billow-observatory

Good find.

Jon Hassell- Fascinoma

The best fusion of jazz and ambient music I've ever heard.

Eliane Radigue- Kailasha (Trilogie De La Mort- Disc 2)

More people should know about her. A true master of minimalism and drone music.

I wonder how many albums he has planned for this year. He only had one album come out last year, but he had 4 in 2012.

I'm fired up for the new Alio Die release. Listening today to a number of vocal-infused Alio Die albums, such as Apsaras, Eleusian Lullaby, Mei-Jyu, and Aura Seminalis.

It's up on Bandcamp already. Listened to one of the tracks on it and it's great. Might buy it too.

That's awesome. Can't wait to hear these releases.

Yeah, the economy is still horrible. Hope you find a job Mike. I'm going to have to get one myself after I get out of grad school in May, and I don't have that much experience. It's hard to start a career in an economy like this. That's for sure.

Flood and Ed Buller are excellent producers.

Speaking of stretching, my project actually started with a bunch of sound stretch experiments. They weren't too good but I did keep one of them on my Bandcamp, which is called Planetarium. It's not mixed well at all though but I think it has some merit. 

Anyways, one of my recent tracks, Desert On Mercury, was originally a sound stretch experiment. On that one, I used no reverb on my original sound source and after stretching it, I used equalizer on it. It can be effective if done properly. I think that track came out well

Overall, I've grown sour on sound stretching. It was fun for a while but I didn't feel like I was getting the drones I wanted from it. I've found that slowing down tracks by a little bit can be a lot more effective.

Phobos and Seren make great music.

I'm also an ambient musician, if you haven't figured out from my sig. I'm too shameless not to plug it myself. ;D

Yet another great ambient album from Bandcamp. I feel like Bandcamp has been great for the genre.

Kevin Braheny- The Way Home

It's somewhat similar.

I like her 80's work a lot. Sacred Space Music is a classic.
