Sounds pretty good.

A darkly dense affair this one, with a good 'depth' to it.
Slightly bordering on the atonal for these ears in parts, otherwise more nebulous and rather unique throughout - I certainly wouldn't say "reminiscent of the work of so and so"

Thanks for listening to it! I'm glad you noticed the depth. That's always a major priority for me when I'm piecing together my tracks.

Just finished it and I really enjoyed it from start to finish. The ocean sounds didn't feel cliche and it feels spiritual and heavenly without being cheesy. Congratulations on the new album.

Thanks Pete!

Also, I just bought your new album on BC and I'm downloading it right now. Been meaning to give it a good listen.

Divination - Distill

Just started listening to this and so far, it's a great compilation of dark ambient tracks. Tetsu Inoue, Pete Namlook, Mick Harris, Paul Schultz, and Thomas Koner are on it. Highly recommended.

Here's some download keys. You can redeem them here:

These two albums are classics in my book. If I didn't already have the CDs I'd get them through BC.

Note the artwork is different from the old 90s CD artwork.

Nice, and the Divination albums are now up too!

Looks interesting, and the price isn't bad.

Also, Obduction looks gorgeous but I didn't care for Riven years ago when I tried it so I'm hesitant to buy it. You either like those kinds of games or you don't.

Hello everyone,

Here is the new Castleview album, out now on Duff Egan's new label, Black Dingo Records.

I'm really proud to have the first commissioned release on Duff's label. I've been a big fan of his work for a long time so I jumped on this opportunity pretty quickly.

Speaking of Black Dingo Records, Duff also has a CD release of The Future Of Man (BDR 001), which is now available for the first time on Databloem:

I just built a gaming PC recently with Windows 10 on it. Windows is what I grew up with and it's the only serious choice for PC gaming at this point.

That being said, I've used Macs in college and work and they worked fine for me. OSX is pretty stable and it's not too hard to find things after a little while of getting used to it. I like how all updates are free but you've essentially paid for it through the overpriced hardware. Not only is their hardware far too expensive for the amount of performance you're typically getting, they're really hard to upgrade and repair by yourself like others have already pointed out.

Plus, if you really want to avoid viruses, just get a Chromebook or install Linux (particularly an accessible distro like Ubuntu or Mint). Ubuntu isn't bad for basic computing nowadays.

Divination - Sacrifice

It doesn't sound like the other Divination albums but Laraaji's zither blends in really well with Laswell's soundscapes.

Duff Egan - Cosmogenesis

Love the drones here, especially the first two tracks.

Got you.....the mystery remains then!

Sadly, it does.

Also, Laswell's Bandcamp has more stuff from Axiom Records now uploaded but none of it is ambient. Some of it might be of interest to jazz and world music fans. I haven't even heard a lot of it, and I'm a Bill Laswell fan.

Very Interesting music...Lost in translation, Like it a lot.

Tetsu Inoue is credited as part of this project....released in august, 2016, does not say when it was recorded.  People have been looking for this fellow as he dropped of the radar a while ago.

It came out in 1994 originally. Tetsu Inoue also did a full-length with Laswell back in the day called Cymatic Scan, released in 1995.

I know Bill Laswell isn't strictly an ambient musician but he worked on the Psychonavigation, Outland, and part of the Dark Side Of The Moog series with Pete Namlook and his Axiom Ambient compilation is a personal favorite of mine:

I wonder if he has any rights to the Psychonavigation and Outland albums. It'd be awesome if he uploaded them in the future. It'd be nice to see the Divination albums there. Even the last one with Laraaji was really good.

Just thought that somebody here might be interested. There's some great albums uploaded already.

Biospherica is awesome. Definitely one of my favorites of the year as well.

Death Cube K - Dreamatorium

Haven't listened to this in a long time but it's one of the best dark ambient albums ever.

Have this, but not listened for an age. Will have to check it out again.

Have you heard his guitar ambient album, Colma? TBH it's not really ambient but I suppose for Buckethead it is  ;) Has some of the most beautiful guitar melodies and tunes I have heard. In fact one of the best guitar orientated albums ever for me, and that is saying something.

I have not heard it. TBH, I don't follow Buckethead too closely. Might have to check that out sometime though.

I actually got Dreamatorium mainly because Bill Laswell worked on it.

I never got any of his solo discs, just the one Danna & Clement album  A Gradual Awakening, and also  Tim Clément's Waterstation, both of which I enjoy. I wonder what happened to Tim, according to discogs he hasn't released anything since 1994.

He makes music for TV shows and films and he's showed up on a few of Danna's soundtracks. Otherwise, he's been pretty quiet.

He has a website apparently:

Hakobune and Dirk Serries - Obscured By Beams Of Sorrow

Some of the best ambient guitar soundscapes you'll find. A lovely album that reveals itself further with each listen.
