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.)

Looking through what I've played regularly and really enjoyed this past year ... I think they are all 2007.[...]
- Vessel: Dreaming In Pairs

Some nice ones on that list, Anthony, though that one's actually Vessel's debut album from 2002!


- Paul Bradley: Chroma
One of my favourites too, though must admit to being surprised to see it in your list, as I seem to recall you weren't totally convinced on first listen - something to do with its lack of lower-end frequencies and detail. Did it sneak up on you?

OK, that Vessel is a bit early :D strike it from the list.
I only got it a few months ago though, and its great.

Yep, Chroma got better the more I listened. Probably like Anamnesis more, but its not 2007.
I'm looking forward to picking up more Bradley this year. He is excellent ... as you well know.

This afternoon

Spyra: Orphan Waves (excellent, if you like his old-school style. Very Pink Floyd in places.)

What I often look and hope for is more "musicality" in ambient music. And the trend (if there is one) towards melody and structure is a good sign. And interestingly, the use of acoustic instruments is often another sign of musicality, of people who can actually play musical instruments and have a musical sensibility and not just a technological ability. I do appreciate the technological side, but a needed musicality is what I find missing in a lot of electro-ambient music ... music that sounds too much alike, and too reliant on just stringing predictable samples together or applying big effects rather than playing anything with some musical and expressive expertise.

Think of Eno.

Then you can be excused, Loren.
Unless you also have a poster of Dean Martin on another wall !

I've noticed a lot of people in this thread (and in past "gear shot" type threads) - not everyone, but many people have a tendency towards indian, native american, aboriginal, african, etc... types of decorations - whether it's rugs, blankets, wall hangings or artwork, masks, etc...   Of course, quite a few drums tossed in as well which are both functional and ornamental... :)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this seems to be basically an American sort of new age / native association thing ?
I don't see it in European studio shots.

This evening

- Spyra: Headphone Concert   (just the first long track ... love it. Tres Berlin, but well played.)
- Weigl & Hoffmann: Examples of a Medusa  (kafkaesque lyrics and addictive simple music)






1678

1679
