Everything and Nothing / Re: A viewpoint of ambient EM music
« on: July 04, 2014, 10:26:56 AM »
If they don't like ambient, then they don't like it. There's not much else you can do, I'm not a fan of opera, I would imagine if someone tried to promote it's virtues to me I may like it even less.

Exactly. Ambient music just isn't for everyone.

A friend of mine said it best when he said that it was music for the eyes and not so much the ears.

Aidan Baker- Rictus: EP Collection

http://brokenspineprods.bandcamp.com/album/rictus-ep-collection

More people should know about Aidan Baker's solo work. A lot of people just know him for Nadja but I prefer his solo work.

Mathias Grassow - Mind Riders

Giving this a listen for the first time in a while and it's one of my favorite Grassow albums.

Also, has anyone listened to First Gift Of Life yet?

Dirk Serries - Streams of Consciousness 132010

Another excellent album. Top-notch guitar atmospherics.

As the frugal musician that I am, I use Hosa cables.  :-[

Klaus Wiese - Divine Orbit

Got it in the mail today courtesy of el culto, and it's awesome! It's nice to have another Klaus Wiese CD in my collection. My other one, Uranus, skips nowadays and I suspect that it is suffering from a tiny bit of disc rot.

Dirk Serries - streams of consciousness 132010

It's one of Dirk Serries' new stream of consciousness albums and it's yet another strong release. It's similar to the first few that he released last summer.

How to Disappear Completely - Oblivion/Rites
Digital only release, available on bandcamp. Drifting, weightless ambient with sounds that cast shadows.

https://htdc.bandcamp.com/album/oblivion-rites

This is awesome. Listening to it right now.

Rec008 - No Wake Up - No Sad

If you like some shoegaze in your ambient music like I do, I highly recommend this.

http://gv-sound.bandcamp.com/album/no-wake-up-no-sad

And I agree that this thread rules for finding new ambient music.

This is excellent news for sure. A true master of ambient music IMO.

31
Great track. Vaguely reminded me of M'Ocean era Michael Stearns, in terms of the atmosphere.

32
I saw a used copy of Ming Noir go for at least $60 (probably higher) not too long ago on Amazon. It's not exactly easy to get for a reasonable price nowadays, and it's far from the only one like that either.

I want to see Cosmic Glue re-released soon too.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: What synths did Oöphoi used?
« on: May 14, 2014, 08:00:50 PM »
I'm not the biggest Oophoi fan but yeah, he was open about his lack of technical knowledge. I think he even called himself just an "amateur" in one interview IIRC.

34
Fantastic news about the music of Klaus Wiese, which had a huge impact on many Ambient Artists (Oophoi, Mathias Grassow, Tomas Weiss and a great number of others) and listeners who are into professional and personal "musical therapy" worldwide.

Greetings,

Oh wow, that is amazing news. Some of the best I've heard in a long time.

Ulwhednar - Withatten 1892

Revisiting this album and it's great dark ambient music.

« on: May 11, 2014, 12:26:33 PM »
Those are pretty interesting synths. I've been interested in the Folktek devices,  http://folktek.com/ ,but they are kind of pricey. The Electric Lobotomy stuff is a lot more affordable. I may have to look into these more.


Folktec seems awesome but yeah, definitely pricey.

I think these synths are a lot of fun, some reverb would do some serious drones!

Thanks for posting.

Los Bosques Sombríos I - Sonic Forest & Sylo Synth


That was really cool. I especially liked the red instrument. That thing can create some great textures.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Handmade synthesizers
« on: May 09, 2014, 01:17:06 PM »
I just got my first handmade synthesizer in the mail today. Here's a demo video from the creator of it:

Touch Synthesizer


Does anybody else like to use handmade synths like this or does everybody just stick to high-end hardware analog synths and soft synths?

Micronesia Guitar Trio- A# 1/1

This is now my favorite album of the year. Lots of guitar noise with an industrial aesthetic but with more than enough ambience and structure to keep it far from getting into Merzbow territory.

Alio Die- Suspended Feathers

A true standout in Alio Die's huge discography.


Yair Elazar Glotman - Northern Gulfs
Super interesting album from Glacial Movements. It combines three things I love: isolationist ambiance, field recordings, and Geiger counter-like clicks and static. This is a true stand-out album; the last track in particular, Home Port, is a jewel.

Steam/Buy: https://glacialmovements.bandcamp.com/album/northern-gulfs


I listened to the opener earlier and it was really cool. I need to find the time to listen to the rest of it.
