"Danger Man" was an excellent series. Also had its fine moments of What the heck is going on here?
I liked them as much as The Prisoner. It was a bit earlier.

I have Nostromo and Deep Frieze and both are indeed wonderful albums that
I play regularly. Quality, consistent, ambient material.

You might want to ask that in a separate thread, Michael. Could get buried in here.

np
- Weigl & Hofmann: Elevate (ep)

I love Weigl's work. But have not heard anyone else mention him.
So here is a link: http://www.philippweigl.com
There are a bunch of free releases.

That would still leave 99.9% of all tv as shallow  ;) 
... but I agree. The Prisoner is/was great.
Some episodes are rather dated and a tad silly, but they still have charm and import if you get into the mood.

I enjoyed it !
Lots of pieces I don't know. And a nice consistent darker edge through it all. Good stuff.

Just some notes on format. You only need to list start times. You could zip (or rar) the mp3 so you can include the track list as a text fle. And its ID3 tag is the first track's title, you should perhaps edit that to your mix title (Absinthe...).

Hi, I'm Anthony Paul Kerby (APK) and I live in Ontario, Canada, but was born and raised in
southern England (and miss it). I'm married and have a wonderful daughter called Angela.

I run the DataObscura record label and have released quite a few albums under 3 names:
The Circular Ruins, Lammergeyer, and Nunc Stans.  Plus some collaborations.

Last real job was teaching philosophy. But now I spend most of my time playing keyboards,
messing with gear, listening to music, hanging out on the Hypnos board, thinking, cooking,
field-recording, drinking wine, and birdwatching/hiking when the weather is good. And I'm
older than Mike Griffin.

First listen. Didn't sound as spectacular as 4, but interesting stuff for sure.

MYST was such a great game for its ambient sounds and music score.

"whoa, haven't i had quite the rant today!"   ;D

Quick response. Yes, I certainly have known many kids that lean a different way than top 40, but of course its primarily to do with a mix of parents, culture, class, and degree of exposure to stuff. Like father like son so often rings true. Which is not to say the majority of westernized kids aren't top 40 biased, most probably are.

DSpace: "Since when have young kids gone bonkers over music that sounds like non-top 40, and sounds more like Debussy, Vaughan Williams or the Bladerunner soundtrack?  Never. "

Just want to add to Mark's post ... that maybe you are mixing with the wrong kids ;)
Lot of 'em are devoted to classical, jazz, and other things than pop culture.

1 - Having music on all the time in the background can be like having the tv on all
the time ... subtly annoying, invasive, and too busy.

2 - I think when you are older you are more inclined towards music that fits your mood
(rather than adapting your mood to the music), and its not always easy to find music
that works over a whole album.

3 - Quiet is well worth listening to  :)

Everything and Nothing / Re: Questions re: ambient mixes
« on: January 07, 2009, 06:35:48 PM »
Hi Ein Sophistry, and welcome to the forum.

I don't think there are any fixed rules about mixes.

I think most artists (and labels) see these mixes as a good form of promotion. So I don't think permission is needed, especially if its just one track from any particular album.

Most mixes cross-fade the tracks together. Which is a good thing. It places the track in the overall mix, rather than leaving it as a separate entity. Part of the fun & creativity of a mix is to create continuous flow.

Also, if the mix is a slightly lower mp3 quality (128kbs) then its not like you are giving away an album quality copy of the music.

Just some initial thoughts.
Other people here do mixes and will likely add more.

You seem to be listening to about 5 CDs per hour, APK!

Cheap time-dilation !   we have that in Canada now  :)

But actually the first post was when I was well into Exit In Grey.
I'm still listening to Esem.

- Lawrence English: Kiri No Oto
Some of this has lovely rich musical textures (like 3 openers),
but after that I find it inconsistent and often mindlessly noisy.

- Description Without Place: Filaments
Recommended listening after English.
