Celer - 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.

It's definitely a change, but I've gotten positive feedback so far. Hope you like it.

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

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.

Duff Egan - Elephant Head

Duff Egan used to be Earth Orbit Audio System but now he's under a new alias and this is a brilliant return. I think it's the best thing he's ever done. It feels more organic than his previous work and his production skills have improved overall.

I haven't quite finished listening yet but it's awesome so far.

Dronny Darko and SandSpace - Untitled

Excellent aquatic dark ambient music from GV Sound, which is an excellent netlabel. Their vision of the sea is a lot creepier and claustrophobic than mine was on Oceanscape, at least in the beginning. The album cover sums it up quite well.

Gentleman...its your tone and honestly you provoked Tomas's to the point response, As well as mine. You know it is so, so dont be so surprised. Your perspective has great value and is well worth discussing but if you come across as you just have then you will be held accountable by forum members who release wonderful ambient music and who do not take to other ambient musicians production skills being questioned especially when the music is so damn "low volume" it seems ridiculous to even question overly extended bass. 

You want to have a go at it...then do so with respect and everyone will listen!  Of course sitting around a table discussing this with a pint of beer and things would be so much better understood.

Love & Peace

I agree with you..I do not want to attack people it takes a lot of energy.. but when there is people like Thomas with intention to just attack people on a personal level I must respond with the same coins... I said what I wanted to say.. I hope we can continue to speak about the new steve roach album now.

Honestly, you're just better off letting it go than responding.

Also, I have a new album that should be out by the end of the month, if not a little sooner. 

With all due respect, there is no "Low End issue". These tracks sound great to me and I am sure that the low end is intentional. What this comes down to is a matter of taste. I personally like some nice low end in my ambient music from time to time and even song to song, others here don't. I am not sure anyone could make the leap that this low end is due to a lack of skill, equipment or even something like a person's hearing.

I say this because the low end, love it or hate it taste wise is indeed well seated in the mix and not overblown, crackly or boomy.

Just sayin'

Yeah, I don't get what they're saying either. I love a little low end in my ambient music. Sometimes, I love a lot of low end. The whole discussion has been kind of silly, especially with the personal attacks thrown out there.

Pretty good textures.

Lucette Bourdin - Radiant Stars

Never listened to any of her albums before but I'm really impressed so far.  Great textures.

Why do you call it ''Oceanscape''?

I don't feel any audible reference to oceans or ocean creatures, maybe someone else want to chime in..

The track is interesting to listen don't get me wrong.

What synths did you used?

With Oceanscape, I wanted to avoid cliches like sampling whales and waves. I think it definitely sounds aquatic to me, but to each his own I guess. I've seen plenty of people say that it feels very aquatic too.

Also, only about half the sounds were made with soft synths, if that much.

I think Mystic Chords and Sacred Spaces is slightly overrated. The first disc isn't that great IMO, though everything else does compensate. I still enjoy it but there are plenty of other Steve Roach albums I enjoy more.
