Everything and Nothing / Re: A viewpoint of ambient EM music

Pointing him to a variety of things in the broad ambient realm, not just to your own material, might help his outlook.

Beneath the MS-2000 is a Behringer module ... not sure what one.

And the 3 beneath them are also Electrix  (now defunct)  -- looks like the vocoder, the mo-fx, and the recorder/looper.

- Add a little mixer that has the outs you need.

- I've not looked at signal splitters, but they do exist.

- A patch bay.

I want to avoid another mixer just for space reasons…also i can´t think about a very small model for my purpose (at least 2 individual output channels controlled by fader)

I´ve thought about a signal splitters too, but haven´t found anything so far.

Patch Bay? Won´t work...of course you can route a signal from x to y, but i need to split the stereo signal, going into 2 other devices.

Greetings,
Tomas

Tomas:  A patch bay in parallel or half-normalled setting does split the signal into two or more.

I really enjoy listening to his works, unfortunately I can't find any info about what gear did he used.

I see a Fizmo, Korg Z1, Waldorf Q and a Korg MS 2000 in his most famous photo and a bunch of dat machines?

I know some artists here collaborated with him, so maybe you know more than I do :)

Just want to say (as moderator), that Tomas' response seems quite relevant to this initial question.
Lets not get into personal wrangling.  Be cool   8)

Ha!  I remember that from way back  :-)

Reading the final Ian Banks novel :: The Hydrogen Sonata
Great stuff.


How does it compare to 'The Algabraist'?

Too long since I read the Algebraist, though I remember that being a good one too.
The Hydrogen Sonata is in the Culture series, so helps if you have read some of them before. It's very good, but as with other Banks sci fi it is complex and curious.

"She'd say it all sounds the same."  That is mystifying.
But wait a minute ... I've probably said (many times) all 80's music sounds the same  ;)

NP.
The Incredible String Band :: Be Glad For The Song Has No Ending.
Quirky and wonderful 70s Brit. folk.

Honeysuckle is my favourite of Stefano's albums.

It's one of those very consistent albums that flows wonderfully, I don't think she even knows its repeating.  ;)

Many thanks Joe and Thirdsystem for comments on Middle Distance.
Great to see it getting some enjoyment and praise.

I want to give a big thanks to Devin Underhill (Specta Ciera) for this one. He did some very fine work to start the project off. I just took it to its final state.

Just put that on our iPad ... looking forward to it. Be a little shared thing with the wife. Thanks Chris.

A very nice review from Chuck at STAR'S END radio.

............................................................

Congratulations to The Winterhouse. Each disc in their two CD set
GATHERING AUTUMN tracks like a well-executed deep dark hour of STAR'S
END Ambient Radio. Combining Robert Davies' penchant for sustaining
environmental atmospheres and Anthony Paul Kerby's high-concept
soundcraft the 13 sonic scenarios found on their 5th collaboration
bend, expand and recede along an arc sensitively conceived for the
sleeping listener. Accompanied by the beautiful sounds of the wild
outdoors the minimal realizations rise and sustain with slowly
shifting synth beds and deliberately paced melodies, eventually
falling back into the monumental simplicity of field recordings -
sometimes standing alone without musical accompaniment. GATHERING
AUTUMN progresses gradually through its moods, climates and phases
much like the earthly season its title is drawn from. A forest
nightwalk, a twilit beach or dawn in a meadow - the darker chords
provide a sense of the ominous while the brighter ones renewal and
hope. To the inattentive GATHERING AUTUMN will seem like just another
album full of drones and chirping birds - something for their
background ambience. But through more sensitive listening we will find
well recorded sounds of nature, interestingly conceived and created
sound elements and well constructed arrangements. Bells? Piano?
Strings? Flute? Guitar? Exploring both consonance and dissonance the
sounds used within this work only hint at real-world instruments. Some
motion results from building chord progressions or echoing muted
keyboard play, but it is hard to map this work as it continually slips
into and out of the focus of our attention. GATHERING AUTUMN is quite
diverse, but can our over-stimulated senses perceive its many colors
and textures? This is music from a separate place. Islands of
melancholy calm, graceful and dignified - leading to deep thoughts and
dreams.
