Now available from DataObscura:



The Winterhouse: Lost
Follow-up to the acclaimed debut album, Slow Promises, by the combined talents of
Robert Davies and Anthony Paul Kerby (The Circular Ruins, Lammergeyer, Nunc Stans). 
The drone mastery of Davies is overlaid with Kerby's melodic subtlety and sonic creativity
in an organic, addictive, and flowing musical narrative. Lost stands as another testament
to the power and depth of contemporary ambient music and its ability to open remarkable
sonic vistas and moving landscapes.

tracks/samples

- Lost
- Leaving
- Solitary Lives
- The Four Corners of Night
- Clearing

Available as either CD or Download encoded at 256kbs : DataObscura

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


Please have a listen.

Thanks !

Everything and Nothing / Re: Do you speak English with an accent?
« on: September 26, 2008, 01:40:30 PM »
I don't think there is an unaccented english.
And its natural, psychologically, to think of your personal accent as the norm.
But knowledge is comparison, and until you compare you don't see how your accent is just one among many, and not the standard.
In England there are varying accents about every 100 miles.
Of course, it good that we have the Queen ... so everyone can know how english really should be spoken.
 :P

I eventually grew bored with Hamonia Mundi,
and switched to

- Max Richter: Songs From Before
he knows what he's doing.

followed by
- B J Nilsen: The Short Night
which is always excellent (in the noise-drone arena).

I had the same trouble with Groove in Holland.

Everything and Nothing / Re: But what does the family think?
« on: September 19, 2008, 01:31:20 PM »
My parents are dead. I have brothers in England I never see. So no issues there  ;)

My daughter, now 13, has developed a fine taste for both ambient and lounge/glitch/beats. Big Biosphere and Kettel fan.
My wife recognizes stuff, sometimes enjoys it, and doesn't tell me to turn it down too often.

I compose and play keys in a separate studio room, so don't annoy people with my fairly constant playing/recording.

Yep, I pretty much read everything Banks writes, sci-fi and non-sci-fi.
Wasp Factory was one of his first, and quite remarkable.

The thing I most miss since leaving England and moving to Ontario, Canada, is the sea.
Life is not right without being at or very near the sea.

I love it out on the New England coast. 
Haven't been to north of Boston or to Maine yet, but plan to check that stretch out.
I'd happily move to Rhode Island somewhere. Great place.

'Americans are culturally insular, and it's been drummed into our heads from childhood that the only place to be "free" and have "liberty" is the USA.'

That is very ... well, so very programmed. And of course, false.


"most Americans think of Canada as their funny and sorta-communist little cousin upstairs"

That's the first time I'd heard this one. That Canada is the attic of America, fine, but commie !!!!  How odd.
Americans vary quite a bit (ok, a lot. Its a big place.), but a fair bit of Canada is south of a lot of northern USA. In that region I have trouble telling them apart.


Perhaps the American public ought to get out more and skip all the silly rhetoric  :(
