Darkness Within my debut ambient release is now available for the first time as a high quality download (flac) etc at Bandcamp.
Also from today until the end of the year all downloads are reduced to £3 and all physical products are available for £5 plus shipping.
I have also added the last 3 physical discs of This Desolate Place to the bandcamp site.
The new album, Darker, now available as a downloadable version in addition to the CDr.
A great opportunity to add some Phobos music to your collection.

Thanks for listening

Shocking !
What a loss.
I agree, and only 51 years old!

This finally arrived yesterday, and I gave it a listen last night. Makes me wish I had been there, superb stuff and perfect for headphone listening in a dark space!
Your review sums it up perfectly, oh and thanks for the heads up.

I would recommend Komplete, but it will take a lot of time to explore it properly, Komplete 8 is 27 instruments and effects, but if you have got the money well worth it.

And again on the reverb front, a nice free one as well here:- http://dasample.com/products/glaceverb/

Try this for a reverb, its a little bit different,  and its free, so nothing to lose :)

When you are a small artist you have to limit your own self released items and sometimes the limit you set is way more than you are going to sell. My latest is limited to 50 copies, as the minimum amount of digipaks the company would make is 50, I know I won't sell anywhere near that amount, but I wanted the release to be issued in a digipak and that was the only way to go.
However, I do agree with the comments about the artists who have a large following limiting releases to very small numbers, it is a bit silly ::)

Thanks for your comments Blake. Much appreciated 8)

I have switched to these, http://rivieramultimedia.co.uk/PBSCProduct.asp?ItmID=9264531.
If anyone gets a cd from me then feedback on the packaging, how it stood up, etc, is most welcome, then if they are no good then alternative packaging will be sought. As a very small independent artist we rely on feedback for everything, it will help us to provide a better service.

Seetyca - The Luminous Deep



i like his BLEAKSCAPES even more.
terrific release where tectonic forces are at work. maybe a companion CD to Roach's Magnificent Void
some Thomas Koner elements are also to find inhere..

i think he could have chosen a better album title..
I'll have to check that one out, thanks for the tip 8)

First review of Darker by Bert Strolenberg  http://www.sonicimmersion.org/index.php

Phobos album "Darker", his third private release to date, is another treat for ambient fans who love longform, overtly dark and intense soundscape music meant for headphone listening.

With four overall dense and at times rather abstract sound paintings, the composer really takes his listener to the next level down the abyss, which isn’t always that easy this time. The third track "Hell’s Gate" is the most challenging in that aspect. Don’t expect any deranged, apocalyptic music though, as David Thompson sticks to sketching deep ambient dronefields along vast textural, highly imaginative farscapes that all roam in the unknown depths of time and space.
Rhythm is totally absent here as a multitude of extensive layers unfold and sound effects pass by in the everlasting, haunting and foreboding spheres. The faint of heart though should make sure to skip this disc.

The physical release of "Darker" on high-quality Taiyo Yuden cd-r comes as a four-panel digipak and is limited to 50 copies.
