I like ambient music that incorporates noisy elements, so I'm really liking this. The only flaw I can think of is that I do find it to be a bit too loud though.

RIP Oophoi.

Amir Baghiri- The Serenity

I usually don't pay much attention to him but this is a great album.

Castleview, give a try also to Amir's following two albums "Prayers For The Earth" (March 2013) and "Light Textures" (July 2013), both released as CDr editions on small German label Attenuation Circuit, highly recommended!!!  ;)

Richard

How similar would you say those albums are to The Serenity? I noticed your reviews were really positive for both of them.

^You know, I've been meaning to listen to that album for some time but I've never gotten around to it. I bet it's as wonderful as Paul Horn's masterpiece, Inside The Taj Mahal.

As good as electronically created ambience is theres quite a difference from the real thing......I will have to check out the Horn piece.

Absolutely, and you should also check out Inside The Great Pyramid and Inside The Cathedral. Similar concept but in different places obviously.

I had to look it up but basically, it's a massage table with low frequency speakers built into them, used for therapeutic purposes. They're pretty expensive.

Anyways, I recommend anything by Thomas Koner. He uses a lot of low frequencies.

Hi folks!

Good news-- Empiric Records has put forth our first release-- it's called "Miasma" (2 unheard tracks):

Feel free to have a listen, if you'd like.

Thank you!


I think these new tracks are a lot better. I enjoyed them.

I might look into getting one of those Minifoogers, since I'm cheap.

I agree with Forrest's feedback. His advice is always great and very thoughtful, much more than mine was TBH. His advice that he gave me when I first started posting here was extremely helpful.

Also, raw isn't always the best thing, especially in ambient music. I know there are people that preach rawness in music but what should really matter is how the end product sounds. The best albums I find, especially in ambient music, do have polish.

232
Daniel Menche is pretty good. His style leans toward noise more than ambient IMO but still a lot more accessible than let's say Merzbow. I like Static Burn and Field Of Skin. He does have a Bandcamp page:

I'm almost done playing The Bridge and it's really good stuff. I'm digging the subtle changes toward the end.

Speaking of recording and equipment, how do you like the Moogerfooger? I noticed you used one on at least one of your releases. Also, if you're looking for a cheap reverb plugin that's awesome, check out ValhallaRoom. Just got it recently and I love it.

I don't mean to be a jerk but I'm not a fan at all, and this is coming from somebody who likes Zoviet France and Rapoon a lot. You're leaning too close to your influences while at the same time lacking what made them great. I don't mean that to be insulting but I feel like it's foolish to try to outdo your favorite musicians at their own game. I think your music would be better with more juxtaposition and atmosphere.

But maybe I'm wrong. It appears that you're on a label, which means you're ahead of me. Maybe it's just me.

holy shit.  I've been sleeping on this, Castle... 

You have some really nice work on your Bandcamp.  I think I was in a hurry when I last visited and didn't let it sit in the background long enough.  This evening i listened to Droneworlds, Hortus Conclusus and Chamber Music and I was really impressed with your narratives and emotional dynamics.  Each record had  a unique feel and you do a great job of balancing the listen with different vibes and timbers.  I also really appreciate the organic feel your music has, which I sometimes struggle to find in my own.

Would you like to collaborate on a project?  It was really fun to do so with Theta and I still enjoy listening to the result.

Let's do this.  I'm happy to mix/master as well.

I'm open to collaborating on something. I don't know if I have the time right now though. I barely have enough time to work on any music right now because of grad school but maybe things will be less busy in a month or two.

Thanks for the compliments! I really do try hard to make every album sound unique, with not a lot of good equipment.

I really appreciate you posting Droneworlds on Reddit too. I didn't realize that there was an ambient section there but I don't go on Reddit much. I might have to go there more.

My new album is already out now. I released it a week or two ago. You should check it out.

238
Thought Fox is a really good track.

Got this in the mail today:



Still need to listen to it though. I'm sure it's great.


I liked the second disc, but I thought the first one had too many darned birds!

Forrest


Well I'm halfway through the first disc and yeah, there are a lot of birds. I don't find it to be nearly bad enough to detract too much from the overall sound but it does seem a bit overboard. I do like it overall so far. The drones are really nice.
