Julio Di Benedetto & Anthony Paul Kerby : Falling Into Place

Falling Into Place arose in the latter half of 2016 from a series of modular synthesizer
textures created by Julio. These pieces served as a basis for the treatments and additions
by Anthony. The resulting album is a rich and kaleidoscopic journey of moods and complex
flowing soundscapes that never cease to capture the listener's imagination.

The download version is available here on Bandcamp:  Falling Into Place
It's the place to hear the album.

Also available as a physical release at DataObscura:  DataObscura

Please do have a listen. Comments very welcome.

Enjoy !

Other Ambient (and related) Music / NEW Robert Davies :: Afterlight
« on: November 04, 2016, 11:38:36 AM »
New on DataObscura



Robert Davies : Afterlight

Afterlight is a brilliant and consistent new release from the master of pastoral ambient.
Each track situates the listener in intimate communion with a nature that is rich with details
and that builds subtle yet very powerful atmospheres. The music is both lush and relaxing,
and thoroughly absorbing. The experience is ultimately one of reverie, and is transcendent
in its appeal.

The download version is available here on Bandcamp:  Afterlight
It's the place to hear the album.

Also available as a physical release at DataObscura:  DataObscura

Please do have a listen.

Engrossing puzzle game. Great visuals. Good ambient vibe. Tony Gerber new age soundtrack.
Cheap. Available on Steam. Worth a look.

A new work of mine.



Fictions and Poetics : Anatomy of Melancholy

This second release from Fictions and Poetics continues the explorations begun on
Our Last Days but develops into new creative realms. A pinnacle of this release is the
almost 18 minute deeply engaging, subtle and restrained title track Anatomy of Melancholy.
And yes, there are some Murcof-inspired pieces on this album.


It is a download only release, available through Bandcamp:

Everything and Nothing / New Cars and CD Players
« on: February 25, 2016, 08:02:45 PM »
Heard on the radio today that more and more new cars are being sold without CD players ...
that the CD player is becoming an option you must add on rather than a standard component of many new cars.
The times they are a-changin'.

A new work of mine.



Nunc Stans : Elementa

Elementa captures the grandeur and mysterious elemental force of monumental landscapes
and desolate spaces. But these are not just static drones, they are full of motion, sonic events
and curious meanderings. They place you at a beginning. The beginning ... where forces clash,
join, and collapse. Where chasms open and elements intermingle, and where the matter of
life is precipitated in mysterious conjunctions.


It is available on disk at DataObscura and as a download on Bandcamp.
Bandcamp is the best for previewing full tracks :

This is a new project of mine.
Should be of interest to many people here.



Fictions and Poetics : Our Last Days

Fictions and Poetics exists at the crossroads of glitchy minimalism and ambient soundscapes,
with a healthy dose of poetic expression and emotional substance mixed in for good measure.
This first release, Our Last Days, points the way for future explorations.

I hope to be doing more releases under this name and in this general style.
Hopefully some collaborations too.

It is on Bandcamp, and is download only.

fictionsandpoetics.bandcamp.com

Please give it a try.
Comments very welcome.

I hope you enjoy it.

Just released on DataObscura.

   
 
DARWIN RAYMOND and JACOB NEWMAN :: transitions

Darwin Raymond (Ohio) and Jacob Newman (Colorado) combine their talents to create an original
and immersive album of wintry and autumnal drones, textures, and subtle melodies built around
the yearning guitar work of Raymond. Granular treatments and synth additions form evolving layers
of textures and drifting atmospheres that place the listener firmly in the grip of our colder seasons
as they slowly transition towards the hope of spring. It is a fascinating aural journey. 

The album is available as a physical CDr release at DataObscura, or as
a download from our Bandcamp site, where you can stream a bunch of full tracks:

transitions @ BANDCAMP - best for listening.

transitions @ DataObscura - has samples from all tracks.

Please do have a listen.

Many thanks.

I have a new Winterhouse album just out on DataObscura.
This is of course a collaboration with Robert Davies.

   
 
THE WINTERHOUSE :: Slow Awakening

The Winterhouse (Robert Davies and APK) continue to bring us deftly crafted organic landscapes
that are tinged with melancholy and rich with the shadows and details of intimate natural spaces.
Spaces of beauty, seclusion and refuge that appear to emerge from slowly dissolving blankets of
morning mist. The work is both mysterious and enchanting, and is an admirable addition to the
Winterhouse collection.

The album is available as a physical CDr release at DataObscura, or as
a download from our Bandcamp site, where you can stream a bunch of full tracks:

Slow Awakening @ BANDCAMP - best for listening.

Slow Awakening @ DataObscura - has samples from all tracks.

I have a new album just out on DataObscura.

   
 
NUNC STANS :: Further Afield

Ten tracks of lush and subtly inventive drone-style works that flex and evolve, and conjure up
vast landscapes, imaginary flights, and curious excursions. These are works of emotion and are
ripe with fascinating details. So strap on some headphones, settle back, and enjoy the trip as
you travel Further Afield. 

The album is available as a physical CDr release at DataObscura, or as
a download from our Bandcamp site, where you can stream a bunch of full tracks:

Further Afield @ BANDCAMP - best for listening.

THE CIRCULAR RUINS :: Nightfall

Nightfall drifts towards a darker and more experimental territory than the previous Full Circle
release from The Circular Ruins. The mood more mysterious and exploratory -- a journey into
night, and into wormholes that sparkle with curious energies, and have unpredictable
destinations. Expect a fascinating and totally absorbing ambient electronica trip.

The album is available as a physical CDr release at DataObscura, or as
a download from our Bandcamp site, where you can stream a bunch of full tracks:

Lots of fun stuff.

THE CIRCULAR RUINS :: Full Circle

Full Circle is a collection of nine intricate and absorbing ambient explorations that show
APK at his very best. Subtle rhythms, beautiful compositions rich with details, and a
yearnng melodic structure that speaks volumes. A work that will delight again and again.
This one is a little different ... but the samples will tell you a lot more than any words we
can say, so please check them out.

The album is available as a physical CDr release or as a download (320kbs MP3).

A slightly more expensive download is also available on the new DataObscura Bandcamp
site for those who want lossless. You can stream the first 5 tracks.

There is a player with a full set of samples and tracklist here on the purchase page:

This is a mighty fine technical essay on digital audio that shows why higher and higher bit and sampling rates is a waste of time ... and space. Well worth the read if you don't already know this stuff. Or if you thought you did, but actually dont  ;)
