Glad to hear you find the Bandcamp site appealing, Thirdsystem (oops had your name wrong before) Thanks.

I'll eventually put all of our releases up there (30 there already).
It is such a great outlet -- fast, very well organized, and with streaming.
I'm really impressed by the whole Bandcamp model.


Nightfall drifts towards a darker and more experimental territory than the previous Full Circle
release from The Circular Ruins. The mood more mysterious and exploratory -- a journey into
night, and into wormholes that sparkle with curious energies, and have unpredictable
destinations. Expect a fascinating and totally absorbing ambient electronica trip.

The album is available as a physical CDr release at DataObscura, or as
a download from our Bandcamp site, where you can stream a bunch of full tracks:

Nightfall @ DataObscura

Nightfall @ BANDCAMP

Please do have a listen.

Comments always welcome.
Many thanks.

That looks to be an awesome place !
Wish I'd seen more of Scotland when I lived over there.

- Christopher Hipgrave:: No greater hero than the least plant that grows

Lovely thing on the Home Normal bandcamp site. Precious, minimal, glitchy, granular.

Blake Gibson/Robert Davies--"Quiraing".  Very nice album of organic landscape ambient a la Grassow and Stearns.  If you liked the Amplexus label back in the 90s you will dig this.  Also David Parsons work is similar in spots.  Airy, stratospheric sounds morph into darker passages of drones that are occasionally a bit harsh. 
Yep, I received a copy from Dennis at Databloem recently and thought it had potential, but also found it overly harsh in the high end throughout much of it. Could have used some proper mastering on this one.

Been enjoying

- Sakamoto / Illuha / Deupree :: Perpetual
The new one on 12K (from bandcamp). A very fine and delicate work. Worth every minimal cent.
- Pleq :: The Fallen Love
From his bandcamp site. A few years old. 10 out of 10.
- Flowers Of Hell :: Come Hell Or High Water
Curious mix of styles. Quite a bit of scandinavian feel, odd classical, and STOL.
I blame Scott M2 for getting me into this. It's very good wacko stuff. Bandcamp again.

Hmm, could be a nifty little business turning peoples ambient works
and graphic sets into evolving iOS apps !  Quit yer day job, Scott.

Phaedra and Rubycon rewired my brain. RIP Edgar.

Ditto. They were the two.

- Alio Die / Montana :: holographic codex
Love the first track, less keen on the others though.
- Loscil :: sea island
Improves with each listen. Excellent.
- Porya Hatamai :: the garden
Liking this delicate glichy sound quite a lot.
- Been picking up a few 12K Bandcamp releases and enjoying them too.
Isn't Bandcamp great !

Great to hear it, Joe. Many thanks for posting.

People can hear a bunch of full tracks from Middle Distance over at Bandcamp if they are in the mood:

Perhaps not surprising. What did they do?
Cameleon synth ... later updated to Alchemy. And a couple of effect plugins, which I thought were mediocre.
That's pretty much it. Not a lot for so many years.

That said, Alchemy is one of my foundation synths. It's on pretty much everything I do.

That first track on Holographic Codex is excellent !

I have it running on my iPad.  It sounds great   8)

Pete: Had to say give me iPhone apps in the App store in order to see it.

Will definitely give it a try,Scott.
Or should we call you Eno, now that you have gone into infinite variations?  ;)

(I recently picked up a couple of the Eno apps.)

But yes, Happy New Year people. All the very BEST.   :)
