That's great Anthony. You have some fine music there and I hope that through continued exposure more people will discover it as well as the other artists' works that you offer on your label and associated labels. Nice work!!!
Peace, Kirk

I appreciate it, Kirk. Thanks !

From Chuck van Zyl at Star's End
http://www.starsend.org
------------------------------------

The Circular Ruins (Anthony Paul Kirby) is exploring a personal
realm of assertive, emotional ambient music. A fascinating
series of electronic poems that invent a sonic sphere all their
own, FALLING INTO THE SKY (64'11") attempts to liberate the
mind of the listener from its own self-impression. As
soundscapes gradually shift and unfold, textures transform and
we linger easily within a wondrous soundworld. Synthesizer
pads churn behind fluttering atmospherics while further in a
digital wind stirs up strange cosmic debris. Narrative runs adrift
and the hiss and murmur of distant chords occupy the
foreground. Vibrating with energy, FALLING INTO THE SKY
inhabits the amorphous area between the earth's surface and
outer space, and continually reveals itself in revelations revealed
in repeat visits.

Tune in to STAR'S END this weekend for music from FALLING
INTO THE SKY by The Circular Ruins

This evening

- SleepResearch Facility: Deep Frieze

Images of deep storm rumblings and icy winds blowing masterfully across frozen tundra.
Very listenable, very mellow, very sleepy music.
Real sounds, by a real composer  ;)

Yep, and its only later that you find out that the guy complaining about his new audio box was trying to run it alongside a couple of UAD cards, another audio card, and etc etc .... the list goes on   :D

Remember that there are always people who have problems with any piece of gear because of their setup or way they want to work (but often sheer incompetance) ... and its those people with problems who post the most.

John ... another one to look at is the Alesis I/O units. Comparable price and quality. Different design approach.

Looks good, Dave.
Those Enos would certainly make a great set of ceramic tiles. Do the whole room in them.

We all have our "comfort TV" shows, I guess, at least those of us of the age that grew up sitting in front of the TV constantly.

For me, it's Perry Mason, Gilligan's Island, MASH, The Flintstones, maybe Happy Days.  Some of those shows don't stand up too well, these days.  I still love Perry Mason, though.  It's sort of the corny whodunnit show for people who aren't old enough to watch Murder She Wrote.   
;)

Holy cow, you as well !!!  This is like an epidemic !  :)

Note to readers of the Hypnos Forum: 

Despite viewing Murder She Wrote and Matlock regularly, JKN is in fact NOT in his seventies.  Just clarifying.

If its not age, then what is wrong with JKN ?

We just finished the very last episode of Twin Peaks ... fine ending! Was great to see it all again. Yeah, it gets lost for a while (pointless sub-plots) somewhere after the middle, but picks up speed again after.

This evening is beginning with a
chardonnay, a fire, and

- BJ Nilsen: The Short Night

This is a great quirky disk of drones, sounds, atmospheres, that shift and meld in serious ways ... like an impending storm over the North Sea.

Bill -- on hosting, look at the place where Alan put his mix.

I think its a grey area, both questionable and yet useful.

Clearly a mix is like a compilation album that a label might release. And the tracks are copyrighted. I've seen mixes with rather long tracks on them (Steve Roach for example) in pretty good quality. I can understand if artists and labels get a little concerned about how many tracks are being put out this way to a fairly large listening public. A good mix album can be as good as any compilation a label might put out. So I can see the "stealing" angle quite clearly.

But it's also useful. Quite simply, it's very good advertising. These are selected & recommended pieces that people might otherwise not know. Yes, a bit like a radio station, but more permanent and probably better quality.

I'm also happier if the tracks are run / crossfaded together, rather than separate. And, as Alan just pointed out, maybe 128 kbs mp3 is good enough and will provide a little impetus for people to get the full quality original.

So yep, I can live with mixes if they released in the right spirit, and right format.

15 of 2007's Best from over here:

ATOMINE ELEKTRINE: Nebulous (Essence)
PAUL BRADLEY: Cede (Waterscape) [3” minidisc]
PAUL BRADLEY: Searching for the Way (Locus of Assemblage) [3” minidisc]
JEFRE CANTU-LEDESMA: The Garden Of Forking Paths (Spekk)
HAKOBUNE: Sense of Place (U-cover CD-r)
ANDERS ILAR: Ludwijka - Extended Visit (Shitkatapult)
ROD MODELL: Plays Michael Mantra (Silentes)
MOLJEBKA PVLSE: Driftsond (Gears of Sand)
NORTHERN: Drawn (Infraction)
ADAM PACIONE: From Stills to Motion (Infraction)
QUOSP: Soundscapes 1 (U-cover CD-r)
SEEFEEL: Quique (Redux Edition) (Too Pure)
SLEEPRESEARCH_FACILITY: Deep Frieze (Cold Spring)
THE BEAUTIFUL SCHIZOPHONIC: Musicamorosa (Crónica)
UBEBOET: Spectra (Twenty Hertz)



Following on the example set by Brian and others, I've made available for download a mix containing tracks from my Best of 2007 list above. The link below is to a .zip file which contains a continuous mp3 (128 kps bitrate) of 78:27 mins in length plus a word document giving a blow-by-blow tracklisting. It's predominantly beatless ambient-inclined material, though several tracks have discreet beat presences. Hope you'll get a kick or two out of it, as I did in compiling it: Grab it here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/5q6fta


I got a few kicks out of it.
Especially enjoyed the Sleepresearch and Modell tracks. Were all good things though
Thanks for posting !

This morning. Couple from my 2007 favourites list

- Oophoi: Arpe di Sabbia  (flowing drones)
- Last Days: These Places Are Now Ruins (which resembles a shoegazer, ambient, lofi crossbreed to my ears. Delicate stuff.)
