"Chris has suddenly become my new music guru- everything he suggests really hits the spot for me."

Couldn't agree more. Though I do have trouble keeping up with his voracious appetite.  ;)

Nice, like it. Any plans for a download on that one ?

Just checked The Winterhouse - Gathering Autumn also, excellent. But first purchase is going to be......The Circular Ruins and Mystified: Fantastic Journey  8) Great concept, excellent album cover, amazing music ! and one of the best reviews I've read in a long time  ;D

Nice looking and very interesting site there.


Revelation was relesed by Databloem in Holland. I only have some hard copies for sale. But Databloem are selling a download through CDBaby:

Today:
- Daft Punk: Random Access Memories
- Keith Jarrett: No End (remarkable for him playing drums and guitar, and everything else)
- Alio Die: Honeysuckle (great to leave looping for a few hours)
- Jonsi: We Bought a Zoo (soundtrack)

The cover image is of a piece of art by Robert Davies.
It is pretty sharp.

THE WINTERHOUSE :: Gathering Autumn

A special new 2CD release from the studios of Robert Davies and APK, and the
fifth in The Winterhouse series of lush and expressive ambient landscapes and
explorations. The theme is autumn, the mood sombre and introspective, the music
detailed and intimate.

The album is available as a physical release or as a download.
CD version includes a pro printed glossy card of the cover image.

There is a player with a full set of samples and tracklist at the link below:

Eliane Radigue- Kailasha (Trilogie De La Mort- Disc 2)

More people should know about her. A true master of minimalism and drone music.

Thanks Castleview, I had never heard her before. Fascinating stuff. Will do some exploring.

This morning:

Anthony Paul Kerby & Tomas Weiss- Revelation- very nice space drift. Unlike their previous collaboration, Distant Shadows, which was fraught with restlessness and tension, this disc is a relatively peaceful and benign journey- no troublesome asteroids and comets to dodge :) The production and sound design is flawless, of course. Highly recommended to those who like the darker side of ambient.

Very pleased to hear you enjoyed Revelation, Joe. Thanks !

Totally agree.
Visuals/production values, story ...  excellent.
I'm looking forward to seeing it again some day.

Nice review, Richard.
And yes, what a finely crafted album this is.

Hey Scott: Now we know where your avatar comes from !

Thought I'd put an image of the album here:

I was watching a video on one of the portable amps designed for use with mobile devices, the guy said on an Apple, rather than feeding the headphone Out into it, you can get a connector that uses the proprietary apple socket to feed the amp and that this bypasses the not so good amp in the Apple so you start with a cleaner signal.

Also interesting is the crossfeed option on more expensive units (Phonitor) which feeds some of the left and right signal into each other to create a more speaker-like emulation. I'm guessing this is a major part of speaker emulation software you can get to make your headphone listening more like your monitor listening.

96
Darker/denser than I commonly listen to, but have been really enjoying this today along with the earlier "Darker", which I'm listening to on bandcamp now. Especially appreciate the variety and complexity you weave into these pieces. Excellent !

As Seren said: "It is difficult to see how this could have been resolved differently as eventually the level of upset could have driven people away or caused people to avoid responding to Immersion's posts - neither of which are positive outcomes."

Yep. All already true I believe.

Curiously immune to other people's views, and blithely unaware that this is a forum run by a record label.

I think we should probably end this thread and move on.

Immersion, you show up on a forum where many of the members are ambient artists or record label owners, or both. You know most of them believe they should have the right to control their own work, to charge for it if they want, and to assert the right to control how other people use it.

If you want to disregard the rights all creative artists, at least be respectful enough not to rudely announce, "I don't respect your rights. Even if you don't want me to take your music, I will take it if I want to." To do otherwise is just being a jerk.

It's like showing up in a room full of married men and saying, "I dispute your right to protect your wives' bodies, and also dispute the right of your wives to control their own bodies, and I will touch them if I want. You can't stop me, because I disagree with your conservative beliefs."

It's just not cool at all.

Labour, in english, simply means work, it means you put time into it. It doesn't mean "work I'd rather not do".

Yes, I run a label. But I run it primarily to release my own music. No reason to assume that all label owners are "in it for the money" (or some similar silly slogan). Besides, to correct yet another generalization of yours, even lawyers can be primarily interested in the truth, not simply in being paid.

 And there is no reason why art should only be done for "your personal pleasure". That is just another bias of yours. Many artists, now and through history, worked on art for a living. So for you it may just be a hobby, but for many other people it is definitely a profession.

Music should be a passion not a labour..if you do it for money you could aswell be a prostitute and sell yourself.. but nevermind..
You mix up things, of course to be able to surrive on the music is an good bonus but it should not be the driving force and the purpose you release new albums just to bring in some more cash. I think we end it there, you have a more consertive view then me, I am fine with that even though we do not agree.

The worst thing about you Immersion is that you make stupid and totally ignorant statements like "the driving force and the purpose you release new albums just to bring in some more cash". That is one of the most offensive things I have ever heard anyone say against me. But I doubt you can understand that in your self-serving universe.
