Now available:



The Circular Ruins: Before The Colors Deepened
The music of Before The Colors Deepened drifts between a deep, expansive, and sometimes
ominous-sounding, experimental spacemusic, and a more tender, often melancholic, classical
style of slowly developing melodic structures and subtle layering. The result is a complex and
imaginative series of immersive soundworlds that reward attentive listening, and that will take
you on a journey only hinted at in the individual track titles.

tracks & mp3 samples:

- Before the Colors Deepened
- Nothing Has Changed
- Listening To The World - 1
- Time Dilation
- Quiet Sun
- Metaphysical Incident
- To Receive Her Shadow
- Listening To The World - 2
- And If There Is No End
- Stratosphere
- No Longer Here

Available as either CD or Download encoded at 256kbs : DataObscura
Buy the album and you can have a free download.

A full track can be heard on the Radio page --  Here

Thanks.

Thanks, Joe.
Yes, its more in the style of earlier TCR, and a bit more eclectic than recent works of mine.

This evening

- Miwon: a to b
loved his Pale Glitter, this is also a well-crafted release.
Its beat-driven subtle electro stuff, kinda in the Boc Scadet or Maps And Diagrams style.

- Robert Davies: Geography of Memory
yes, I released this ... but only because its an excellent piece of work.
I think its his best yet. Here is a full track http://www.dataobscura.com/radio.php

- Múm: Finally We Are No one
its an Icelandic regular here. Love their titles too:
"We Have a Map of the Piano"
"Don't Be Afraid You Have Just Got Your Eyes Closed"
"Now There's That Fear Again"
Brilliant!

The cause of bad cdr's is, I believe, simply a chemical breakdown caused by exposure to air/radiation/heat. It happens are varying rates, but presumably faster with cheaper blank cdr's. Its fairly unpredictable. Of course, the technology has improved over the years, so even cheaper ones are now better than they were 10 years ago. People/companies are naturally concerned with getting something with archival quality.

And don't forget that some cdr's are just bad to begin with ... production errors that get through the quality check. I used to especially find this with memorex brand ... they were rubbish.

I think hard disks last so well because they are a sealed/unexposed unit. Just don't knock them around though :)

Back in the joint running of Databloem and Dataobscura we used sticky labels on taiyo yuden disks for the Dataobscura releases. I did find them a problem occasionally, particularly in some car players where there is a narrow slot the disk goes in. Maybe that design is especially sensitive to thickness.

Since the separation a year ago of Databloem and Dataobscura, all Dataobscura releases (including the early ones) have on-disk printing with no sticky labels.  Thought I'd mention that.

I'm only hearing the youtube version, and I'd have to say it has drama when tied to the images. But considered musically its seriously in need of renovation.

So many of these re-interpetations/re-samplings are initially "fascinating", but not something one comes back to with any degree of enthusiasm.

Fascination is so often momentary, like visceral shock.
But not a lasting value.

(and if you find out it was someone else's work merely fed through a simple effects chain, it can easily appear much less fascinating, and less artistic/individual/valuable)

Try going to "Profile"
then under "Modify Profile" click on "Account related settings".
Looks like you can change the displayed name people will see.
Give it a try.

I really enjoy Williams as well.
Lark Ascending and the Thomas Tallis piece, of course.
But also the little collection of Houseman songs, On Wenlock Edge. Wonderful things.

Joe:
that was the new Circular Ruins, not Nunc Stans. I was going to call
it Quiet Sun, but recently renamed it to Before The Colors Deepened.
They are both tracks on the album.
I will have some preview samples up soon.

"Inspection of the CD-R reveals no damage."

And you are sure its not just your player acting up?

Martini time here  :)

- Jeff Greinke: Soundtracks
Haven't heard this in a while ... but its totally enjoyable as usual.
If you don't know it, its a cinematic/classical style.
