Thank you, Anthony.
The photo was shot during my trip through Iceland and shows a bridge in Southern Iceland.

I've sent you a message with the download-link.


Spatium Somniorum is my yearly Dark Ambient/Ambient/Drone mix series I do every winter. I chose 70 tracks from some of my favorite CDs and created a 5 hour long sonic journey, trying to actually create something new by layering up to 4 tracks, editing songs and adding own sounds. As the mix consists of music from other artists, I will not post the download link here, but I will send it to you instead if you request the link here or on the corresponding post on False Mirror's Facebook page

Cold and dark greetings from Germany

Great, Dirk! Too bad I sold my two 1210's a few years ago :/

There are already so many skilled professionals doing anything it takes to make their work commercially viable that a beginner can't cut to the head of the line even if they want to.
Well I think that view is a bit too pessimistic. Assuming it would be true and beginners didn't have any chances at all, there wouldn't be anyone making money with his creative work. A good friend of mine just got his first novel published, so there ARE chances if you are good enough. Of course luck and relations are factors too, but I think if you are good enough and there's some market for your art, there are chances enough to make money with it.
Speaking of reasons to make art... of course there are many people who mainly do it for the money (although I think only a few of them ONLY do it for the money) and I absolutely respect anybody who has found ways to successfully exploit himself/herself and make a living for it. You have to know that this isn't that easy as it may look at the first glance, for example you'd always have to fear your next work could be a flop.
To me making music is part of a self-actualization and self-healing process. I have to do it, there's something inside that wants to be transformed into music. If I wouldn't make any music, I'd most probably be depressed and unsatisfied. Although I do get some money for my music, it's merely a little additional pocket money. Of course I could give the music away for free (and I already did with my very first 'Gras - Gras' album which is available for free download), but I think that way it would lose some value (but that's a totally different topic we had already discussed a few times here I think).

Thank you very much both of you!  :)

Might it have something to do with the cryptic coded message on back of the booklet?
I bet it does ;)
I've posted some hints on my blog ->

Good news: Databloem will soon release my new solo album "Il Silenzio di Dio" as a limited edition Cd (200 copies).

Great to hear, I'm looking forward to that!

Baked Beans - Baked Beans

least: some free promotional stuff

most: Dean DeCosta - Diminishing Returns (Mosaic Special Edition) -- I had been looking for that particular records for years, so it didn't matter that much when I had paid ~30€ for it.

how many % does apple and amazon take from the money If I buy mp3 ?

don't know, the label deals with that...

I also had a first listen right now and I really like it very much, great to hear how the piano integrates into the music.
It sounds like been recorded on a foggy October morning next to a river.

Yet I recommend the CD version because of
1.) The booklet & artwork
2.) The short story inside the booklet
3.) The hidden messages that will lead to the "bonus world"


Hi Tobias.
New release looks real good.
Was wondering if there is also a download for sale, or only the CD ?

Thanks, downloads will come via iTunes and Amazon MP3.
