Thanks, Chris23, I think I should have started posting here a long time ago. 

And, hdibrell, I'd be very interested to hear your feedback.  It's been a busy week for me too and I plan to listen to Castleview's work this weekend.  Do you have music online that I could listen to as well?

I'm likely just missing it, but I didn't see a section for introductions.

There isn't that much to say, really.  My older brothers introduced me to ambient and IDM music at a young age. We used to hang out and play Master of Orion and Xcom UFO Defense while rotating ambient records.

The first two CD's I bought were Aphex Twin Saw 1 and 2.  I grew up in Happy Valley Salt Lake City and it was difficult for me to find other people who were into the same sound which was sort of a feedback loop to get me more into it.

There was a brief testosterone dominated period of my youth where I was determined to be a successful DJ, but thankfully that didn't last very long.

I started listening to ambient music more in my late teens and I used to play a table-top RPG called GURPS, where we would always have textures on for atmosphere.  That was a big part of the reason I became so fascinated with the sound, in how in helped facilitate imaginative landscapes and other-wordly experiences.  This was right about the time that I started exploring altered states, and I've been gravitating towards this sound ever since. 

My favorite artist of all-time is Oophoi, his music changed my life.  I'm also a big fan of Steve Roach, Sleep Research Facility, Tomas Koner, Tomas Weiss, Mathias Grassow and Tetsu Inoue.  There are many other artists I enjoy, but these are my biggest influences.

I have a degree in "Sound Arts", whatever that means, and I now work as a sound designer and audio engineer in the Pacific NW, Seattle metro area.  I'd love to meet other folks in the area for friendship and collaboration if anyone else is out here.

Agreed!  It didn't grab me immediately but I'm listening to it again right now and find I enjoy it more with each listen.  I'm a big fan of Grassow and it's one of my favorite things that he's done.  The pre-ordered analog mastered sound is really fun with my Focal system.

Thanks for giving it a listen and for your warm welcome!

I'll be sure to fill out a brief intro, that certainly makes sense that it would likely help me to collect more feedback.

Also, I really like your signature.  I have a 12 year old Red Heeler mix recovering from a $3k leg surgery.  I'm still paying it off, but worth every penny...

I pre-ordered and have the analog mastered version, and I just love this record.  I received it last Thursday and listened to it almost the entire weekend and here I am again this evening enjoying it again.

Incredible sonics and depth with a great mix of organic elements alongside beautiful synth textures.  This and the live Steve Roach release are probably my records of the year so far.

Highly recommended. 

Thanks, I'm still trying to find my sound but I'm having fun and I think I'm making some progress.

I've followed you on Bandcamp, I'll be giving your work a listen over the next few days.

Thank you for posting this!

I'm a big fan of Gigi the artist and the person, very excited to hear this.

Also, I recently picked up Stellar Nurseries during the Hypnos sale.  It was the first record of yours that I had heard and was really impressed with the engineering and the composition.  Some of the most textured, powerful and controlled low-frequency I've ever heard.

Here is the last project:

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  My goal is to refine my sound/aesthetic and I'm thirsty for the feedback of this community.

Peace and Light.
