a little different, but needed.

This is a great new double album from Robert Davies.
Totally listenable, drone-based material in the tradition
of Grassow, Alio Die, Oophoi ... but unmistakably Robert Davies.

Here are some samples.
CD1 - Aura Sublime

And a link to the album on the new DataObscura site

There are also 2 full tracks on the Radio page on the site.

Please do listen. This is a fine piece of work beginning to end.

Talking of sci-fi ... recently finished Alastair Reynolds "Revelation Space". Found it to have some great concepts and ideas, but in the end an unsatisfying plot. Little ponderous.

Now re-reading "The Sybil" by Par Lagerkvist.  Not sci-fi. Classic.

I'm looking forward to season 4.

Keith Berry: A Strange Feather  (primarily foreboding soundscapes, but low key, inventive and very enjoyable)

Good to hear it, Hallu. Thanks !

I take that back ... Mesh does not color-separate posts and is narrower.
Back-n-black is better.


but could be time to head over to
http://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/
and see what others they have. Good to find something
easy on the eyes & with a bit of character.

Yep, I also miss the bottom of page navigation.

Mike: on the template thing, I particularly like Mesh ... another dark theme similar to the one you suggest.

Now

- Tom Opdahl: Black Smoker  (still in my all-time top 10. Must for Biosphere fans I'd reckon)

I certainly don't mind you linking to images on the dataobscura site, John.
It has unlimited bandwidth.

Good to get comments on the design style. I keep things relatively simple
and clean. I especially like to have a recognizable 'style' that they
conform to. Each wth its own graphics, but with the same layout.

- Metroid Prime 3 Corruption ... on the Wii

Really enjoying it. Basically a doom-style 1st person shooter. Excellent movement and graphics.
the Wii is a good platform for this style of game.

1736
Wow, that's a lot of "highly" -- I'm looking forward to hearing these.

They clearly set a new standard for contemporary electro-ambient music !

 ;)

That's mighty nice of you two.
Many thanks for the comments. I appreciate it.

And Joe, yes that is Lake Huron on the cover.
I took that shot up at a place called McGregor Point -- fascinating location
because of the boulder-strewn shore, rather than sand.
