Many thanks, Jana !

I've always really liked early choral music and Gregorian chant and I was thinking about trying to do something somewhat in that style, set against a backdrop of drones and environmental natural sounds.

Max Corbacho - Indalo

Erik W°llo and Byron Metcalf - Earth Luminous

And broke my 2-purchases-a-month rule to get

Igneous Flame - Moonglow
Nice work, Pete.

Much appreciated :)

'Moonglow' - the sister release to 'Ocean Sighs'.

I released this after 'Ocean Sighs', as I felt that trying to get them both completed at the same time, would be quite a task - considering the very large pool of material I was working with. It made more sense to take the time and finish one after the other.

I bought the mighty Native Instrument's Replika XT delay:

Along with Valhalla's Ubermod, this should cover my delay cravings. The diffusion mode is instant 'Budd-orama'  :)

On a footwear note, I bought some sheepskin slippers too. Yes, I have reached a 'certain age'...

Yep, just buying Flesh from Native Instruments.
It's a fascinating, if at first confusing, live sample instrument.

I don't know what to make of this at all. In fact I just can't figure it out - which is a good thing ! I've found the things I like the most are initially a bit of a challenge.

I'm trying not to be temped again this year, but who knows :)
Alas, it's the old iLok thing for those Eventide plug-ins, for me.
I wonder if Korg will release another 'Gadget' for iOS (Wavestation ?)

I really like 'Dragonfly', it has something of Eno's 'Ambient 4' about it - which is high praise, in my book.

A darkly dense affair this one, with a good 'depth' to it.
Slightly bordering on the atonal for these ears in parts, otherwise more nebulous and rather unique throughout - I certainly wouldn't say "reminiscent of the work of so and so"

Thanks for the download codes you posted. I grabbed a copy, will give it a good listen soonest.


Well, I finally got everything sorted with SoundExchange and Musicreports. Be warned UK people, this was a very time consuming task ! Those US tax forms are a mystery and filling out spreadsheet with ISRC codes and the like for over twenty albums was quite a task too. Saying that, the people I dealt with were very patient with me nonetheless :)

Cheers for that Forrest ! Such considered feedback is always appreciated.

One thing is for sure ... analog synths have no hope of emulating what todays digital synths can do.

That's a good point, I usually steer clear of these discussions as I'm not really a keyboard player. However, I still find a synth like NI's Razor to be far more interesting than any analogue synth. Saying that, that could be because I never really used them in the past and what I do know about (guitars / amps) , the 'analogue' equivalent - a real amp and cabinet, is not there yet in any kind of emulation (that I've heard)

A 1000 eh,

I've not reached that elusive figure and I've been here for 9 years and Mike still hasn't banned me yet :)   

Cheers Julio,

The vox pieces took some doing and I'd gotten to the point with the whole project where i didn't know what to make of it all, so it's great to hear it works  for you (and others) !

Hey Julio Man,

Good to hear you're alright.

'h' Many thanks to you too !

He says some critical things too.
That pocket now vid is much more informative than the original one.
As I say, I wasn't planning on upgrading to this new phone, as my 6 plus is fine for me and for photography duties. I've stopped carting my Sony RX100 around now, even though it's technically better in almost every way to the phone.

I won't be buying one, but my interest in the iphone 7 is the new camera. That video shows the reviewer knows very little about photography. Here is a better one:

The headphone jack issue is a marketing strategy which (IMO) may well backfire on Apple. All hail to them for freeing us from the tyranny of cables :) </irony>

Julio, you may remember the olde english association attached to the word 'trump' ?, suffice to say it is a windy one :)

Many thanks 'chris23' ! Thanks also to Bert and Forrest for your interest too.

I didn't want to make too much of it in the press release / blurb, but I envisaged this one as being a sleep album of sorts.
