Other Ambient (and related) Music / Robert Rich :: Nest CD
« on: September 30, 2012, 11:13:35 AM »
just noticed 2 track samples are up!
i think so far it sounds absolutely beautiful.. those are the atmospheres i do adore (a bit Ishq-y sounding maybe..)
my copy is on the way so we'll see what it sounds/feels like overall.
fantastic fitting cover as well!

very into Mathias Grassow lately (probably because of the latest Gterma injection);

el hadra - ornaments
grassow & weiss - farewell (in hommage to klaus wiese)
mathias grassow - 3rd dimension
grassow & klaus wiese - holy domain
(all very good, his drone alchemy is timeless, and will easily survive today's more fancy ambient outings ..)

oophoi - behind the wall of sleep
(got recently its 4th edition, this time on Nextera! the music is magic but this cover sucks..)

luigi turra & gianluca becuzzi - in winter
(came as a real surprise, beautiful wintery melancholic pieces featuring guitar, piano and crispy fieldrecordings)

ishq - flowering mountain earth
ishvara - under a hexagon sky
(both are real stunners if you ask me, very refined/detailed in sound and texture!)

stephan mathieu & caro mikalef - radioland (panoramica)
(had this unplayed for a while but after i gave it a good listen i must conclude this' a very fine developing piece of radiant droning music..)

five elements music - rishikesh
(an excellent fieldrecordings disc (taken in india after midnight) with the ocassional subtle humming of drones in the background)


hakobune & pleq - adrift
chihei hatakeyama & asuna - scale compositions
tobias hellkvist - everything is connected
sophie hutchings - night sky
maurizio bianchi - aeternum aevum
evan caminiti - dreamless sleep
v.a. - gyalpo (gterma)
yannick dauby / hitoshi kojo / mnortham - (КОРЛИГОН) korligon
catherine christer hennix - chora(s)san time:court mirage

Headonist, thanks for the Ishq update!

the nicest sonic surprise of this month :)
though that GBP-EUR rate really hurts!

i may end up with Denon or Marantz.. but you never know..

Everything and Nothing / recommended AV receivers ??
« on: July 13, 2012, 03:46:36 AM »
currently while my old Kenwood is dying slowly, i'm looking for a decent middle-class priced AV receiver that has all the latest features,
like mp3 streaming from various sources..
some brands that are crossing my mind are; pioneer, marantz, denon, yamaha, onkyo...

if someone has any experience/suggestions/recommendations, please let me know ! :)

five elements music/andrea marutti/jim haynes - tri-ton
(best drone comp. i heard in a while! has been on a heavy rotation as of late, yummy!)

loren nerell - slow dream
(great CD, beautiful cover, sometimes i wish the metallic gamelan tunings do become more clear (less processed) in the mix..)

bvdub - i remember
(one of my favorite Bvdub releases..)

mathias grassow - uttarakuru
(i'm glad this got a remastered re-issue! overall quite static though imo it has enoughy depht to bite into it for over 2 hours)

thomas koner - novaya zemlya
(good but i'm still chewing on it to make up my mind..)

celer - merkin
(another very fine piece of quiet lingering dronics.. i understand Celer is overwhelming its fans/listeners by their immense output, though their ambient-approach is the one i do adore..)

david tagg - hand of clovers
(beautiful music, a definite favorite of the year)

isnaj dui - abstracts on solitude
(a rather short but lovely and introverted album all with processed flutes)

steve roach - slow dream  8)


deepchord - sommer
deepchord presents echospace - silent world
east of oceans (Bvdub) - 121 years
willits+sakamoto - ancient future
k. leimer - permissions

Mike, thanks for the info!

so maybe i should start doing it now.. :)

Everything and Nothing / hypnos forum 'banned error' on iPhone ??
« on: June 23, 2012, 08:49:05 AM »
actually i wanted to bring up this issue for a while now. it happens mostly when i stay abroad, like in Asia.
it says; "sorry guest, you are banned from this forum!"

sometimes it helps to 'reset all settings' and delete all history, cache and cookies... but of course it shouldn't be that difficult/elaborate to enter a forum.. :)
what do i wrong or what does iPhone do wrong ??

i was also a bit cautious about Haughm influence inhere..
though no worries, it is basically typical Grassow stuff :)

samples here!

i made my order yesterday

« on: June 21, 2012, 10:29:08 AM »
that's a good point bringing up.

when i see all that music/plastic piling up here, i feel pretty disgusted with myself..
i need to buy all the things i like.. and all that illegal file-sharing doesn't help either for me. more exposure that way means 'for me' more expenses, cause i simply want the original thing ! that's the problem i'm dealing with, why not being satisfied with a few releases now and then or inexpensive/free downloads..
i'm just 37, what does it look like in 10 years from now, 7000+ CDs at your place....??? is that something to be proud or feeling ashamed of ???
you can only look at it not even talking about playing it...

according to a newsletter by Forced Nostalgia, 'Point of Arrival' gets a CD-issue (for the CD heads) as well.
i think they watch the LP sales of PoA first..

odds and ends over the last few weeks;

bvdub - serenity / don't say you know / the first day (the title track is outstanding!)
steve roach - fever dreams III (had a kind of revival with this, finally starts growing on me..)
david tagg - hand of clovers (gorgeous dusty dronemusic as always from mr. Tagg)
amir baghiri - live long & prosper (definately his best!)
yannick franck - memorabilia (good dark droning a la Cyclic Law..)
mathias grassow - aestrata, fata morgana, sky
wicked messenger - dreamer | redeemer (so, so intensely dark and foreboding that its becomes intriguing in some way or another...)
paul schutze & andrew hulme - fell
paul schutze - green evil (terrific compilation of Schutze's work)
federsen - echo relics (i'm eagerly waiting for future work by him, this guy got talent!)
lingua fungi - flowery dreams / tlapallan pantonal
loren chasse - the footpath

bruno sanfilippo - urbs ;-)

anticipating (way too much);

new Cyclic Laws except for the Arcana one..
3 new Grassow's on Gterma
loren nerell - slow dream
steve roach & dirk serries - music for low volume
thomas koner - novaya zemlya !
moritz von oswald trio - fetch
gareth davis & frances-marie uitti - gramercy
isnaj dui - abstracts on solitude
richard skelton - verse of birds
spheruleus & ekca liena - mapping the boundary layer

i enjoyed that John Beltran CD quite a lot.
check out that latest Conforce 'Escapism' CD on Delsin too !

..a not too distant Grassow drone invasion on the horizon (most probably early june)

i'll get all 3 of them !

amir baghiri - live long & prosper
(yes, this' very good indeed ! speaking about huge shimmering drones..)

mathias grassow - sky
(despite its little mastering glitches, i rate it amongs Grassow's finest)

lungia fungi & shrine - strange growths / wander
(excellent split from both artists, Shrine's contribution is really thrilling, shimmering though apocalyptic sounding)

artificial memory trace - ama_zone1 (black waters)
(fascinating fieldrecordings of the highest order, like being in the middle of a deep tropical swamp)

asc & sam kdc - decayed society
(a real grower for sure, way recommended)

anticipating (lots is coming up, not good for my wallet);

forrest fang - animism (surprise! just noticed it along with a 2CD digipack re-issue of Steve Roach - Day out of Time; is it out yet Forrest ??!
dale lloyd - organisms
v.a. - Gyalpo (comp. on Gterma, excerpts (especially the powerful Grassow one) sound very good if you ask me)
mathias grassow - wisdom of fate 2CD (again on Gterma !)
carl weingarten - panomorphia (buy with Carl himself for $11 only !)
tape loop orchestra - the words on my lips is your name..
talvihorros & damian valles - monuments & ruins
hakobune - while shadows sweep across the lawn

thanks for the tip, Forrest!

i own this hidden CD by Aglaia under the name 'La Musica E La Mudra' (=Aglaia: by several years.
it's been released on CD as well, though i can't find it:
i thinks it's a beauty and sounds like an worthy alternate version of 'Mondi Sensibili'. Only the mastering job here is done pretty bad..

i will definitely check out their other so-called new-agey therapeutic stuff on Amazon.

duane pitre - feel free
(very good disc, actually 1 track divided in 5 parts, beautiful engaging acoustics at play,such as guitar, dulcimer, harp, violin, contrabass, cello)

asher - landscape studies
(beautiful MP3 release, my warming up for his new 2-part Untitled Landscapes)

bvdub - serenity/don't say you know
(addictive and uplifting throughout, especially i'm taken by the vocals, though some parts i don't understand..)

mulm - the end of greatness
(maybe the best i've heard on Cyclic..)

asc & sam kdc - decayed society
(definitely OK, would fit nicely on Silent Season as well..)

36 - bass communion remixed by 36
(absolutely deep & gorgeous, should be released on CD, though that will never happen)


david tagg - hand of clovers (yes!!)
shrine - somnia
en - already gone
mathias grassow - dammerung CD & uttarakuru 2CD
seaworthy - bellows & breath
