Did you read that he quited making music because of illegal downloads in russia?
Such a fool. I am sorry to say that, but what was he expecting? Becoming the
new Steve Roach or what?

Got this one today, Michael. Breathtakingly good work. Surely not for the weakest heart, since its pretty
"doomy". But men, thats how nadja could sound if they would take back the ambient parts a bit. Highly
recommended to all Fans of Nadja, Sunn O))) or The Angelic Process (rip).

SiF- have you heard Chino's other project Team Sleep? Great stuff but more in the vein of White Pony than Around the Fur era Deftones.
Hi Michael. Of course i own that CD and i love it. Wonderful late night listening album.

Deftones - Anniversary of an Uninteresting Event

Pacta - Slottet
wonderful .... thank god i found this brilliant artist

Pacta - Hidden Hand

Hidden Hand is his first proper Album after various EP's. Its a wonderful melange of gentle acoustic guitars, electronics and laptop manipulations. While listening to this i always thought i hear an unreleased collaboration between Christian Fennesz and Oren Ambarchi. Really breathtaking work in every single Way. 9 Tracks with a playing time of about 40 minutes. Highly recommended.

Sound Samples can be found here ---->

The Pacta has a special deal. There are 50 Copies that are made for pre-orders. All of them come on a red cd-r with different artworkdesign.

David Tagg - The Lingering Path

On this 3"cd-r Tagg does what he does best. Building intimate Ambient Soundscapes with his Guitar and Effect Pedals. Pictures from Airplanes is perhaps the best Ambient tune i heard in a long time. Of course recommended to all Tagg Fans and the listeners who enjoy warm and cozy ambient tunes.

I can really recommend that Pacta Disc to all of you. Guess i dont even need to say
anything about David Tagg.

OK, I'll go first:

I've been told on occasion that I bear a small, (and I mean small), resemblance to Milla Jovovich-


Hmmm, I don't know about that...  ???

i swear i saw you on the television a while ago (here in Germany on MTV i think).
Thats weired. Is that possible? Guess not. I think the program was called "Made".
Yes, you do exactly look like a Made Coach who helped someone fulfilling their

Edit: No wait. Now i have it. That Made Stuff was bullshit. You do look exactly
like Belinda Butcher of My Bloody Valentine. That is sick. Its like you are here

Mike must be the luckiest guy in the world.

any thoughts on this one? Need a good MIDI Controller for my Live Setup and this
one kind of looks good.

You will get your Copy for free, Paul. I feel really sorry that i lost the contact to you,
but i have to be honest. I found the love of my life and i recorded the new Album so
this kind of took me of track. But that will change, as soon as the record is out, i promise. :)

Devin Townsend - Deadhead | Live from the Safe Zone DVD
best song ever written .... no doubt, and probably best performance ever .... Devin is a fucking

Hi Guys,

well i thought i let you know that in a not to distant future, i will release my first Vinyl Record.
It took a long time to get to this point were i felt, that i had said anything with my Music in
terms of just "pure guitar droning". Of course it makes me proud that people still enjoy listening
to those recordings. But for me personally, as an artist, it felt so damn good to finally express
myself the way i alway wanted it to do.

Why should i limit myself to just a guitar, when there are so many other sources to use.

"A Shiver in Red" is a new beginning for myself as an artist. For the first and surely not the
last time i used other Sources then just my guitar. I used Field Recordings and Shortwave Radio
Manipulations and Electronics. I also feed my Guitar through self-build patches that i worked
on for quiet a while. One can make my guitar sound like a church-organ when i play the right
chords. Its amazing. Noise is also a huge factor for this new Album. Not the kind of Merzbow
Noise, more soft crackling, a bit of white noise, faulty transitions from my old Shortwave Radio
and that kind of thing. This really enhances the sounds in my opinion.

Here is the Artwork and the Tracklist. I will also post Samples in the coming Weeks.

:: Artwork ::

:: Tracklist ::

Side A
A Shiver in Red
Desirable Black
Interlude for Lovers (part one)
Various Colour Movements (part one)

Side B
A Shiver in White
Various Colour Movements (part two)
Interlude for Lovers (part two)
Love Noise

Hope you dont mind this little insult. But i am so glad about this record that i wanted to share
it with you.

Great. Well written. Really appreciate it.

Also played a couple of improvised Sets with Guitar and Laptop.
But i am going away from this completely improvised drone stuff
into more "structured" performances because of my new Album.

Currently planning a short tour to support the release of the
Vinyl Record which is coming out in April.

But this time its going to be extreme difficult to perform the
music of the new album, since there are so many different
layers of guitar and electronics, which makes me thing that
i might need to use a few pre-recorded phrases here and
there. Ableton is helping me with this really well, since its
exactly the way i want to operate live. Also thinking of
screens were images will be shown, that go along with the
new Music. Mostly b/w i guess.

But its tough to get Spots here in Germany. I want to play
at least one performance in a Church, since i am so excited
that i created guitar sounds that totally sound like an church
organ. but that will be the hardest part, because i think it
will be tough, to get a booking for an church. so i will try.

Listened to the new Yagya, Rigning, last night...

Such an excellent work. I don't know how he does it. It seems at first to be elegant techno on the surface, then just blossoms out from these subtle beginnings into deep emotion and soundscape. Wonderful first impression.
Really great Record, thats right. Played this quiet often during the last week.

Trentemöller - The Forrest
also great Ambient Techno

Christopher Willits - Fountain
nice glitchy guitar work

John Kannenberg - Gelidus
anyone know this release? i never really was a fan of this minimal sound synthesis but
this work really blows me away everytime i listen to it .... its far away from ambient,
going a bit more into the noise genre, but breathtaking ..... this tape hiss always
reminds me of the sound of rain, and i guess thats why i love it so much .... the whole
work is a "sonic interpretation of extreme cold in six movements"
