'Non stop Erotic Cabaret' by Soft Cell.
An excellently poignant album made more personal for me as I used to live in the 'Bedsit Land' that Marc Almond sings about (Leeds 6).

I don't know if this is the 'new reality' or not, but BC is unique (as far as I'm aware) in that it lets people stream releases in effect. I've heard that may change, even iTunes limits listening to a preview. Naturally this differs from a service like Spotify, but it seems to me to be the same thing in effect, it's just that listening is free on BC.

I understand the artist deciding to limit their tracks and I also understand that the listener wants to hear the full release (which is what I currently do with my material)

It's because some artists don't like the idea of having the full album on BC to listen to as they believe that's what people will do - listen to it (without any limitations / streaming fees), not buy it.

Great read Bill,

Interesting to see those names who are still going now and how much has changed in the meantime as well. The interview with a 29 year old Jeff Pearce !

Scott, Still enjoying this album.
I've listen a number of times now and it still sounds 'new' each time. Without giving the game away, could you let us know some idea of how it 'generates' ? I've been looking into 'Noatikl' as well and finding iOS to be very interesting regarding audio. As for iOS and ambient musicians, I don't know enough about the whole area yet (the learning curve is still pretty steep in parts), I think I'II ponder on things a bit more and write a blog post soonest. 

Cheers for the tips fellers, was able to download it and run it fine. Very interesting, on first listen and I'm curious to hear how it 'generates' on further listens.

Forrest, I'm a bit new to all this 'i-stuff'. I couldn't see it on the Appstore on the iPad, but I can on iTunes on my PC, will try it out.

Fascinating idea Scott, would have loved to hear it, but it's not available for an iPad, it seems.

John, that does look suspiciously like patting yourself on the back, which just jolly well isn't done over here :) (in the UK)

Video fine to view in the UK.

I think it could be a tremelo type effect, like as on a rhodes. You might want to try the demo of 'Lounge lizard' to see if that's the case:

Cheers, for that. I delved a little deeper and found this page concerning the technology behind this:

Fascinating, if not a little scary (?)

Native Instruments very much comes to mind - some great stuff that actually can do more than wobble basses :)

Cheers !

Dean's Harmonium and my processing / production.

When the album was released, a japanese feller sent me a picture of him holding a copy of the CD(r) he had bought in a zen-type garden in Japan - I was touched.

'Motivation' by The Gasman - genius !

Judging by the cover artwork, perhaps Robert was going for some 'jungle / rainforest ambience' ? When I've watched documentaries about the Amazon rainforest (for example), I'm always surprised with how much of a sonic event it is, the noise of the insects and bird calls and general animal whoopings seems to be constant - and very loud !
